Should I quit my writing commitment?

So right now I write for a few places online, for free. One is a technology site, one is a film/TV site, and one is a music site.

Lately I haven't been feeling the technology reviews. I cover iPhone games for them every two weeks or so, but it's been a while since I submitted something—edging on a month. I just don't get pleasure from writing these reviews right now; they're a chore, and I don't want to do them anymore.


I worry that this is a symptom of depression spiraling up again, since losing interest in your hobbies was a big huge red flag for mine, but right now I'm just doing other stuff. I'm going to the gym and getting back on a reading kick, and even knitting a little in my spare time. I'm also going to have to quit writing these reviews at some point anyway, since I'm going to grad school in September.

I think I've made my decision, but I figured I'd toss it out to the minds of GT. I think it's worth just quitting—I'm not under contract, I'm not getting paid, and thus I don't have to worry about letting anyone down. And it'll free me up from the guilt of not submitting anything.
