I’m really sorry, guys. Friday was kind of a wake-up call for me. I’m stretched way too thin—school and work are really overwhelming, and I’m realizing that running this blog takes up almost all of my (already extremely limited) free time. Like, to the extent that it’s unhealthy for me; I stay up late researching and writing and it’s sapping all the creative energy that I used to have to put into other things.
I know this is really abrupt but I’ve been fairly thoroughly in denial about just how stressed I’ve been recently. And at the risk of sounding melodramatic, I realized last night that in the month and a half since I started it, this blog has become a burden, not something I enjoy doing.
I’m not gonna delete, and I might well come back and write again. Or alternatively, if someone else was interested in taking over, I’d be willing to relinquish the URL. You can hit me up on my personal if you want (which is oddly devoid of ocean-related paranoia).
So, yeah. I suck. Love each and every one of you—I started this mostly as a joke with a friend of mine, I never thought that 70+ people would be interested in reading my rants about the fuckin’ ocean! But I just can’t do this anymore, I don’t have the time or the energy. I’m sorry.
