I Failed

What I mean by that is I didn’t even try.

Last night I was supposed to stay up all night reading for my own planned Readathon.

Well, my friend, who now lives across the country, came home and she’s only home for two days. She has a lot of people to see in just those two days and the last time I saw her was sometime last year.

Needless to say, I decided to be social and see my friend after such a long time.

I didn’t expect to stay at her house too late, but by the time I got home and settled in it was after 10:30.

Kris and I were going to start our reading then, but then we got to talking. We were talking about our writing, about books, about fangirl things, about life in general.

Before we knew it, we were both yawning. We checked the time and… Would you look at that? 12:47 AM.

We ended up just going to bed because while we were both still semi-awake, neither one of us was in the mood to sit down and read for a couple of hours.

So we did stay up pretty late. It wasn’t an all-nighter and we weren’t reading, but we had a good chat. Every once in a while, we end up sitting down for a couple of hours and discuss stuff. It’s usually right before bed, too… Weird.

Anyway, I don’t even have a book review for today. The week kind of got away from me when it came to my reading time.

We’ll try to do a readathon some other time (in the near future) because it is something I want to try. I’m curious to see how long I would last.

I’m a little bummed we didn’t get to do it, but in this case seeing my friend is more important. The next time I see her will probably be around Christmas, but she might not even make it home for that. In which case, I probably won’t see her again until summer of next year. Plane tickets aren’t cheap.

So, sorry for that lack of updates.

I hope you all had a great night!

  1. Priorities.

    I don’t know about you, but I can’t pull all- nighters anymore. Yes, I realize I work nights. I’ve hit that stage where I at least need a nap.

    If you ever do a readathon again, I’ll try to join (unless it’s an all- nighter. 😉 lol). Until then, live a little. 😛

  2. Ohhh so not a fail. It’s totally allowed. My best mate lives in Australia now – so when she comes home I drop everything and go see her. Life is for living as much as it is following our passions. I think you did the right thing 😀

Let me know what you think!
