We all wish that we are in a city where wishes come true and be part of a drama club with a girl drawing pictures of Dango or help a harem of sad girls in snow… The problem is… reality. The majority of us Anime bloggers attend high school or college and school isn’t as fun like in the Anime universe or visual novels.
I’m going onto the third week at attending Rutgers University (yes, I know theres a Anime club there, but I won’t bother since there will probably be a bunch of Weeaboos that will annoy me since I’m a actual Asian) and like with Spring semester at my old college I used to attend, I’m in a pile of homework, readings and papers to write. Unlike spring semester, I am practically going to school almost the whole week although three days I only have one class and I don’t really have that insanely difficult classes that require alot of time. Still, homework takes a lot of free time I could spend on watching anime and writing a blog post about it. With the Prelab for General Chemistry Lab, it took me nearly 6-7 hours just to complete it… Same with my accounting homework since I have problems to work out which takes a while since I need to learn how to solve it. With the other courses, mostly it’s reading and writing papers which won’t take as long, but I won’t be updating nearly as much I did in the summer since I need to complete my homework ahead of time so I can have time to update my blog later… Remember, work and study now and play later… and you will get good grades.
I do anime blogging and watching on my free time and I do my best to make updates since I’m not one of those people who does hiatus and never updates the blog again… If you excuse me, I have some homework to do.
But my feelings still wish it was still summer, but not a eternal summer of course… I hate that Endless Eight loops…

Yea, school isn’t what most people would want it to be. It sucks. Of course, as an Art Education major, I’m just taking all art classes, which are easy A’s. Next semester I’m going to die though, as it’s all education classes.
I’m a Accounting Major… and the courses get alot harder when you get to the higher levels like Advanced Accounting and other business course… it’s a lot of memorizing which can be very difficult.
And the hardest courses is Macro and Micro economics, never take both of them together.
yea school is screwing me too.
I’m in HS, but the honors teachers all have the mentality that i have no other classes or activities or human functions other than doing homework.
“yes, I know theres a Anime club there, but I won’t bother since there will probably be a bunch of Weeaboos that will annoy me since I’m a actual Asian”
I don’t join anime clubs or anything like that because the members are annoying and because i don’t have time to play role-play fighting all afternoon (i’v learned that 99% of HS anime clubs do this) Oh and because im somewhat of a closet otaku, but its after school so that doesn’t matter…
I’ve also avoided the anime club at the school I attend despite one of my friends being in that club. The impression I got is that’s there are quite a few weeaboos with… irritating personalities that I wouldn’t get along with too much.
Good luck with the accounting major though. I’ve had to sit through those classes before and found the intro ones to be blerghh but the intermed/advanced classes are more enjoyable. If there’s a class on financial statement analysis, definitely take that too!
“We all wish that we are in a city where wishes come true and …help a harem of sad girls in snow”
Honestly, I’d prefer a harem of kickass warrior women who pilot giant robots.
But yeah, if it makes you feel any better, I’m going a double degree of law and commerce, which piles a stupid amount of work onto you >_>
Why don’t you download college like you download anime?
Another reason besides the Weeaboos is that most of the people in anime clubs would only watch Naruto and Bleach which I do not really like nor interested in.
You have to note that the university I’m attending is very diverse, but even so, I would still be annoyed since I know there is going to be a few Weeaboos that will annoy the heck out of me.
I don’t think it’s a very good idea to download anime using a college connection. Besides, if you get caught, it won’t be good news..
Heh, I don’t really know that feeling yet. I’ve been 2 years at my local university, but it never really felt like one… now that I’m going to the UK, it’ll be interesting to see how I will cope with that situation…
Especially since I just lost one of my writers (the most active one of the two, too…) it might be hard not to get on hiatus. As long as there is someone else to fill in for school-bound inactivity, it’s okay… But where to find. D:
My story is long, but I’ll keep it short. I started blogging on anime around this time in ’06. 2006 was an awesome year, btw. That Summer I had 3 classes, physics 3, calculus 3, and another one (I don’t recall what it was lol, chemistry of some sort). Anyhow, keeping up with seasonal anime was new to me, but I managed and really enjoyed it. Fall courses were more of the same, and it did get more difficult to try and blog (and not knowing what I wanted to blog about was hectic).
Since then, I’ve still be keeping up with seasonal (except during mid-2007 due to moving and driving 5 days a week to school). The thing is, I had less school when I enjoyed less anime, but I didn’t have anything to blog about.
With school, there is less time for anime, and even less for blogging… it’s a crappy situation, but eventually I found my groove; I don’t blog much except on meta/theory of the aniblogging land. I’ve been keeping episodic microblogs since around late 2007, and that has helped in so many ways, mostly for self-gratification (I like to read back about the experience, in my own words).
The general point I’ve figured out is that no matter what, find time for anime/manga (in the least, and especially before blogging) 🙂 Full blogging tends to eat more time, but keeping up with blogs takes more than that… it all comes down to decisions and time management. You’re right about school first, though I tend to slack off at times XD
Yes, some college majors can eat up alot of your time… especially Engineering which you are required to take alot of hard courses like Physics, Chemistry, engineering courses and Calculus which are time consuming courses. Lucky for me, I don’t have to take the hard math and science courses since Accounting major only requires General Sciences and Calculus which I have done last year and completing the last of my General Sciences and Lab this semester and she works ahead and doing assignments weeks before they were due, which proves my sister have alot better time management than I do. I’m still behind on my accounting homework by one chapter, but I expect to get caught up by end of the week.
My sister who is a Bio-medical Engineering major is taking a lot of hard courses this semester in her fall semester of her freshman year and she have even less time then me, but she doesn’t blog or participate at forums like I do.
I felt that way too. My Fall Semester in Freshman year made me felt that I wasn’t in college at all… but that changed now since I transfered and I have alot more work than I did in the University I use to attend.
