It’s that time year again as this blog turns 12 years. Yes, I have been sharing my thoughts and reviewing anime and various Japanese media for that long. As expected, I thought 2020 would be a good year while improving on my blog. Yes, in areas of revamping the overall blog design and make efforts to improve engagement on my blog. Boy, I was wrong. With that, I will share my overall thoughts on my 12th year blogging.
As expected, time flies by so quickly. Now, I finally turn 31 years old. I have to admit, by 30th year was definitely a year of redemption. Yes, last fall, I finally received that job offer for a different federal IT job and the rest is history. So far, I find my new job a lot better than my first job since it’s closer to what I want to do and such. Also, my health improved, especially now that I lost close to 20 pounds and going back into the healthy weight range.
Of course, the whole Covid19 pandemic has affected my plans on what I wanted to do. Moreover, the whole pandemic gotten worse in the United States due to gross mismanagement from an obvious leader of ours. Not only that, this kind of impacted anime releases as well due to the pandemic. It brought some challenges of my flogging motivation to blog and lack of the titles to cover. Hopefully we will overcome the challenges.
As mentioned earlier, my blog’s domain finally turns 10 years old in two days. It took about a year and a half of not having one to eventually obtain one. Either way, it shows how far we come in the longevity of my anime blogging career.
While this birthday post is short, I just want to thank all my readers, followers, and people who comment on my blog for supporting me for these years. Let’s make the next year a great one, hopefully once the Covid19 pandemic is finally under control. Also, feel free to say Happy Birthday in the comments below. ¶
Believe it or not, I have been so busy between the move, adjusting to my new place and new job that I forgot that my blog turned 11 years old (started February 17, 2009). This makes me wonder how long I have been doing this for. By now, a good amount of people who were blogging about anime back when I started in 2009 have pretty much moved on. With that, I would like to reflect on the last year of blogging and focus on the future.
Oh my gosh, I am already this old? Today, I turn 30 years old, which shows how fast time passed by. However, it shows how far I come in terms to my tastes in anime along with how much I watched. Hopefully my life situation will improve very soon now that I now have my Comptia Cybersecurity Analyst certification. I plan to earn more certifications soon (e.g. MCSA and eventually CISSP).

Ten years go by so quickly, but believe it or not, this blog is now 10 years old! Officially, I started this blog on February 17, 2009. Now that is a big milestone to become proud of since not too many anime blogs last this long. With that, it’s time to reflect on some things and what I have in store for the future.

As expected, the whole year went by so quickly. Today, I turn 29. Yes, I still struggling in regards to real life, which I won’t go into detail. Luck hasn’t been on my side in the past few years. Despite the set backs, I still hopeful that things will become better in the future. Sure, the struggles I am facing are only temporary, but it doesn’t mean it will stay that way.
This reminds me that my blog will turn 10 years in 6 more months. It’s surprising that I have been writing about anime along with video games and eventually video games. It definitely kept my sanity by allowing to share my passion for them, improve my writing skills along with interacting with others. As always, I plan on continuing, unless I run out of shows and things to review of course.
With that, feel free to say Happy Birthday in the comments below. ¶
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.

I have to admit, April is off to a bad start this year. If you noticed, the server that hosts the database went down yesterday. You might be wondering what happened from the tweets I made. I will share what happened.

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. ¶
