WARNING: Operation – Overload: An Update on Blogging, Life, and Work 🙈

The Ginsbergs.jpg

Hello, everyone!

Oh, my. Where to start…

First of all, I’m SO very sorry that I have not been posting as much lately. I should have informed Y’All about what is all going on in my life right now. Let’s just say, I am under ENORMOUS pressure.

#1 – I am trying to get my G1 License

#2 – I am working Monday through Friday from 7AM-5PM

#3 – I still have to finish Science, Geography, French, and Logic this year!!

AHHHHHH!!!!!!! I am going insane Right Now. Trying to do all these things at once is so hard, and fitting blogging into all of that is even harder. I still have loads of school, am working most of the week ALL DAY, and am studying for my license!

Now, I still hope to post here on ‘Total Bradness,’ but for a while not quite as often as I was. I really hope that Y’All can understand my extremely stressful time.

It would mean a lot if you still continued to support me and stick around even though my posts won’t be quite as frequent for a bit. You support means so much, and this blog and all you followers mean a lot to me.

Thanks for your kind understanding. Your prayers are appreciated. 😃🙏

Hello, All! 🙂

Today’s post is a shorter one just to let you know about my upcoming hiatus that I am taking. It is my first hiatus, and the reason for me taking it is because I’m going on a family vacation!


I will be going to a lakefront cottage in Northern Ontario! I hope to have a lot of fun, but will miss blogging and reading all of your posts! To make it clear, I won’t be posting or reading or commenting on other posts, unless I get a brief chance to read a few at the cottage.
