My real life will take over my virtual life.

January 25, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m starting a new job tomorrow and I’m very happy with it. However, I expect it to be time consuming. It will probably demand studying, take a lot of energy and impair my free time. So handling work, family life and bookish life will be kind of a challenge.

Let’s hope I’ll be a good acrobat.

So, don’t be surprised if I take a long time to answer comments or if I don’t visit your blog as often as I used to. I won’t be able to read as many blog posts as I do now and I regret it. Just be patient!

    Enjoy it, Emma, and I hope you can juggle things enough to keep in touch with your keen readers here too.

      Thanks for your message Lisa, that’s an opportunity to challenge my organizational skills!

      Thanks, I’m pretty excited about it. I like novelty.

    One more thing… I will miss you. 🙂

      Thanks! I won’t disappear totally but don’t worry if I don’t leave messages as often and as quickly as usual.

    Wish you all the best in your new job, Emma! Hope you love it and it is very fulfilling and hope you make new wonderful friends at work.

    I loved that picture of you trying to stand on a globe and trying to balance 🙂 Hope you are able to achieve the perfect balance soon.

      Thank you Vishy.

      I love Mafalda (my gravatar), I have plenty of funny images of her in various situations.

    Good luck – hope it all goes well 🙂


  8. January 25, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    All the best with your new job!


    • January 25, 2012 at 3:21 pm

      Thanks, it should be interesting.


  9. January 25, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Work is always a challenge to social pursuits. Good luck! I hope the job works out well.


    • January 25, 2012 at 3:23 pm

      Thanks. I’ll have a lot to learn in the first months but it’s interesting.

    Books tend to make room for themselves, whether that be in terms of time or space. I have even heard of those who can read as they walk. I do not personally recommend this. Here’s optimistically anticipating your continued and regular presence in the blogosphere. There is still a lot of Hardy and Proust that you have promised us!

    Joking aside, good luck in your new job, Emma. I am sure a workable balance will establish itself in time.


    • January 27, 2012 at 12:51 am

      Thanks Sarah.
      Actually, I’m thinking about audio books right now. Reading is like breathing, I’ll find time. It’s blogging I’m concerned about.

    good luck,hope you get some time to blog ,all the best stu


    • January 27, 2012 at 12:54 am

      Thanks Stu, I hope I’ll find time too.


  12. January 29, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Good luck for the new job! I hope it turns out exactly the way you want it.


    • January 29, 2012 at 9:45 pm

      So far, it’s fine.
