Taking a Step Back from the Bookish Community: A Semi-Hiatus Announcement

HIATUS.jpg

Hello everyone! ♥

It’s been a while since the last time I’d been FULLY active here. My life is undergoing a big change and I was planning to tell you this on my March recap, but unfortunately I didn’t even have the time to write a March recap 😂

You might remember that I just started a new job in February, but recently I… got another job 🙈 It was totally unexpected! I wasn’t even looking and out of nowhere a recruiter approached me and asked if I’m interested to work in their company. Here’s the thing : I loved my previous job, it’s close, it’s in line with my major, the people are fun, etc. But there’s one thing I didn’t mention, it didn’t pay well. And this job is so much more promising and still in line with my major. I signed the contract mid March and started working last Monday ♥ which brings me to the second point.

I moved out of the house! My new office is located in this industrial district pretty far from my house so I had to move. One of the reasons why I took the job was because I could live on my own, hehe. I’ve mentioned a few times that I feel confined to live back at home after 4 years of living on my own. So when the first chance of getting out of the house came to me, I took it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family to bits and pieces and enjoy being with them. It’s just, living back with them feels like a step back from my independence.

However… moving out this time isn’t as smooth as I expected. I’ve lived away from home twice, so I know the drill. It’s difficult but doable and I’ll get through it. But this time… well, my place isn’t as good as I expected. When I first saw it, I loved it! Large room, modern furnitures, cozy. What I didn’t know was it is EXTREMELY HOT. It was hot when I first came, but I thought the temperature will drop when I install the air cooler. But nope, did not happen.

It’s also kind of humid that it is hard for me to dry my hair inside! I’m not joking, I washed my hair at around 6 and went to bed at 10 and my hair was still very damp I just?? While at home I wash my hair at 9 and it’ll be dry in about an hour.

But the worst thing from my place is it has a really shitty internet connection! </3 it’s even so difficult to get a decent cell reception. I thought that was the only issue so I bought a wifi device, I figured I’d be able to use it for both my laptop and phone buuuut it doesn’t work. I couldn’t get any signal from inside my place so whenever I want to use internet connection I have to step out and that’s just too much work.

To top it all off, I can’t use internet connection in the office. It’s STRICTLY for work that they block any access to the internet aside from e-mail and other work related stuffs. The only social media I could access is Linkedin and that is for professional purpose.

That being said, it’s so difficult for me to blog or even schedule a post. I tried posting from my phone wordpress app but that didn’t work well. I can’t reply to comments, let alone blog hop during weekdays. And with so many things happening in the bookish community, I’m sad to say that I just can’t keep up.

So, it’s time for me to take a step back and take a semi-hiatus from the book blogging community. I’m gonna look for a new place soon, the one with better air circulation and internet connection, but until then, I’m stuck with this situation 😦 so here’s what’s going to happen in the next three weeks.

  1. I won’t be posting according to my regular schedule. My only post of the week would be reviews every Thursday because I have a lot on backlist
  2. I won’t be able to reply to comments and blog hop. I’ll probably read it from my phone, but I won’t have time to engage 😦 I’m gonna try to catch up as much as I could during weekend
  3. I won’t be able to engage in Twitter and Instagram as much as I liked to
  4. I’m gonna have to push The Diversity Corner #3 to a later date. This post always requires so much time and effort and I definitely don’t have those two right now 😦
  5. If you need to contact me, Twitter DM and e-mail are the fastest method. Obviously I might not reply right away (because of cell reception—or lack there of) but they’re still the best ones 😂

And thaaaat’s it! It’s kind of sad for me and I know that my stats will probably hit rock bottom but at this point I just can’t do this. Please don’t forget me and I’ll be back before you know it 😛

Blogging 101

I don’t know how you stumbled on to my page, but hey, WELCOME! 🙂

Kenalin dulu. Namaku Khairunnisa Putri Kanhida, yg artinya ‘sebaik-baiknya anak perempuan putri dari Kania dan Hidayat (my parents)’. Biasa dipanggil Puput. 21 tahun. I’m a psychology student who loves to read, write, and dream.

Blogging sebetulnya bukan hal baru buat aku. Dulu sekali, waktu SMP (sekitar tahun2006) aku punya blog dan lumayan aktif nulis macam-macam. Masuk SMA, blog mulai kalah populer. Waktu itu lagi jaman-jamannya microblogging mulai dari plurk sampai yg paling populer ya twitter. Aku, seperti remaja-remaja korban zaman lainnya, jelas langsung pindah ke twitter yg rasanya dulu fun banget. Ngga lama setelah itu, tumblr mulai populer. And of course, I signed up. Hehe. Mulai sering nulis ini itu di tumblr, dari mulai curhatan galau ala anak SMA, reblogging foto-foto & quotes, sampai tulisan yg lumayan berbobot ada disitu.

And then, I got busy with life.

Sejak kuliah, jaraaang bgt yg namanya buka-buka blog atau tumblr atau apa lah itu. Sekalinya buka, post terakhirnya udah bertahun-tahun yg lalu, isinya masih galau, bahasanya masih lebay. Pokoknya bikin males deh buat ngelanjutin.

But the truth is, I love writing. Always have, always will. Dan sekarang aku lihat blogging makin banyak diminati, apalagi di era serba digital seperti sekarang ini. Aku suka baca-baca blog orang, it’s refreshing and inspiring at the same time. That’s why, I started this blog again. I want to write. I want to share what’s on my mind and inspire people. I love books, I love makeups, I have a lot of personal thoughts, and sometimes I write short stories. Maybe I’ll write about them, maybe I’ll write something else.

So if you happened to stumble on to my page, and read it, and maybe somehow I inspired you, let me know 🙂

 

Happy reading!
