I have a lot of things that I have yet to watch. Not just anime, but also movies and some TV series that are squatting at my hard drive wasting precious GBs. Since my watching pace have more or less slowed down because of my regular job, I haven’t got the chance to marathon anything. I usually watch an episode or two from two (if I come home early I can usually sneak in an episode from another series) series per day. I just want to show how much I have yet to finish and those that I haven’t started yet. It’s also nice since this might be future shows that I would review (maybe). If there are shows in the list that you would like to see me review or hear my thoughts about it, I’m willing to look it up to and bump it to my priority list (though I doubt it since I’m not the most popular kid in the block)!
I kinda neglected my blog (again) for a whole month. Though not as worse as before when I didn’t touch this for my whole summer vacation. Still…
Anyway, aside from being lazy in terms of writing, I was quite busy with real life stuff! I had to go job hunting and thankfully landed one, which was unfortunately met with a lot of requirements that I had to take care of. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy watching the shows I’ve missed and reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series (which took a huge amount of time) and I’m still at book three. *sighs*
I also had some recent travels and was busy writing a novel I’ve been trying hard to get past the first chapter. I never got the groove to writing the blog till my head was clear from the job hunting part, as I’m too attached to my other hobbies to sacrifice the time allocated for it. But, I secured a job so I guess that’s okay, right? Well, I’m starting next week. *double sigh*
However, I decided to be more committed to blogging. A lot of my other stuff I can’t mostly do at leisure, like travelling for example. Since I’ll be mostly staring at a computer in my job and in my free time, I figured that blogging should be part of my common roster of activities. It’s also a breather from my more literary-driven writings, and might probably get my head in the game in to writing my novel again or a few short stories here and there.
So, with that, I welcome myself again to this blog! I’ve got a lot of material to write about this time, aside from reading some books, I watched a lot of TV shows (mostly anime and cartoons) recently. Haven’t been catching up on my regular comic pull, but I guess I can, once I start getting my salary. Heh. With that, expect a post some time later or tomorrow!
I haven’t been able to get some post recently because I’ve been very very busy with real life. Ugh. Mostly it’s job hunting stuff, so I have to commute a lot (I think I should mention how our city has dreadful traffic and sucky public transportation), answer a lot of qualifying exams, and do some job interviews. There’s so much I want to write about, actually. Unfortunately, the moment I get home my mind is too swamped and tired to write. Plus, I have to clean my place up and cook my own meals…so yeah, chores. Double ugh. I do get some free time, but most of the time, I spend it reading a book (right now A Song of Fire and Ice) and watching the anime this season to clear my head.
Anyway, I’ll be mostly free tomorrow and the following weekend so I think I’d be putting up some posts. For now, I think I need to rest.
“You read comics? Cool! Do you know that guy who fought Superman with a flying sundae cone and unicorns? He’s the most awesome villain ever, right?!”
Whenever people get to know that I read comics, I’m more often than not asked with, “Marvel or DC?“. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I particularly hate Marvel or DC. In fact, when comics are brought up, it’s almost the first two things that can be associated with it. It’s almost a given fact that most of the time, when people say comics, it means superhero comics.
This one here is Totoro
Alright, this is the second part of my Studio Spotlight where I rank my top 5 films from a particular studio. Like I said from my previous post, I’m going to feature Studio Ghibli. This studio is another one of my favorites and I mostly stumbled on its movies because of my aunt who lent me a DVD (or was it VCD, I don’t know) of some Ghibli films. I have to say it was love at first sight for me.
Today, I was supposed to write about my top 5 films for Studio Ghibli, but I got sidetracked because I had to help my little sister with this project. The last time I held a paintbrush was back in high school and I’m not really the greatest painter out there. It took me a few hours for this, mostly experimenting with the acrylic paint since my sister gave me only the primary colors plus black and white. Creating the particular color that I needed was more time-consuming than the sketching the drawing itself. Speaking of that, a lot of the details were lost, and it was way better when it was a pencil sketch. Which is kinda sad.
Anyway, I’d be resuming my posts tomorrow. It’s been so long since I painted that it exhausted me mentally and physically.
Studio Spotlight is where I check out a particular studio’s movies and show my top 5 favorite among them. For this particular series, I would be spotlighting two studios I’m quite fond of which is Pixar Studios and Studio Ghibli.
Today the spotlight goes to Pixar, one of the most well-known animation studios out there. Pixar is somewhat close to my childhood (and adulthood) and like many kids, grew up following almost all of the films.
This is basically my college fine dining experience
If there was one thing I sorely missed about college life, it’s probably my college meal plans of the day. Cut off from the wonderful homemade meals of your far far away home, and flung to a world wherein you basically have to cook or die starving.
