In the past, I have attempted to create an anime community back in 2015. Of course, that attempt failed mostly due to the lack of focus. After some consideration, I would like to give it another go.
It’s that time again as we head to the blog’s anniversary, which I started on the 17th of February. Since I am doing my weekly episode impressions, I may as well get this over with two days early. Sure, things have been rough, but it’s time to share my reflection.
It seems that a year past by very quickly. Today, I turned 28 years old. I felt that I didn’t accomplish anything major during the past year. It’s not surprising since how rough the past year is. While I won’t share much about my real-life problems since it’s personal, hopefully things will get better soon. I know it’s tough, but one has to hang in there. Given how crazy this year is for obvious reasons, anything can happen.
With that, I want to keep things short. As a celebration, I plan on streaming games for most of today, mostly Blue Reflection. If you want to watch, head over to my twitch channel. ¶
It’s that time of year again and yes, today is my 27th birthday. It seems like yesterday since I turned 26th when I started my first job. Now that I passed my first year of working at the job I am in, I got a taste of living independently. This is something that most people in my generation doesn’t get to experience due to debt and low wages.
I have to admit that the past year was rough, especially with a lot of things happening in 2016. As I shared earlier, my grandmother past away in March and of course, I experienced car problems late May and early June. It definitely had a damper on future plans such as possibly going to Anime conventions. I need to pay off the car off before I think about going to any. Not only that, I need to start thinking about dating as well since I want to start a family in a few years or so. Aside from this and other priorities, don’t expect this to change anytime soon. It’s mostly because these conventions are very expensive and there is none where I live.
Aside from that, my JLPT preparation is going steady, but I plan on taking the exam in 2017. I need more time to prepare and polish my Kanji knowledge. Aside from that, the blog will also see some changes, especially in the design aspect. The font changes are now in effect since last week. Eventually, the theme will get redesigned with plans of commissioning for a site mascot. With that, I am hoping to get the forums started again after sitting there for a year collecting dust. It will be an addition to this blog, which will allow discussion of series I don’t cover on this blog and other things. Hopefully these changes will improve discussion on this blog.
With that, feel free to say Happy Birthday in the comments below. ¶
