When I was going into my sophomore year, I decided to take several honors courses including an AP course. While I have been successfully able to maintain my blog for most of the school year, school is becoming more challenging. I have been assigned more homework than ever before as the quarter comes to an end. In addition, I will be studying intensely for finals because I am on the border line of B+ or A for many of my courses. In order to get A’s for my courses, I will have to pay more attention to my schoolwork than my blog, Twitter account, and business ventures.
Sending out blog posts takes up a large portion of my time, and by writing more blog posts, I have found less time to study throughout the day. I will still be able to blog over the summer, but if I end up with B+’s, I will not be able to undo those. For the sake of getting A’s instead of B+’s, I will be giving up blogging and using any of my social networks from now until the start of summer.
Blogging has created an overwhelming schedule which I can no longer deal with. In the end, I am doing research and writing blog posts for a combined total of 3 hours every day. Combined with extracurricular activities and high level courses, writing blog posts has become more of a chore than a hobby. In addition, my grades keep on dropping as I write more blog posts. This change is necessary for the safety of my grades. I am sorry to disappoint the people who have been reading this blog for a while, but I’m throwing up the white flag.
Before I give everyone my final farewell until the start of summer, I would like you to do one thing. Please look at the date on which this blog post was published. If you were afraid that my blog would remain dormant for two months, you have nothing to worry about. Blogging is a passion of mine. I’m here to stay, not give in.

You got me, Marc. I give you a B- for compassion but a definite A for humour.
