I actually don’t like writing about myself. I do write a lot about what I feel towards writing and blogging in general throughout 1.5 years of the limitless imagination, but I rarely talk about anything other than what is acutely related to this virtual space and the ani-manga community surrounding it. That’s really because I don’t like to bring anything that is not remotely relevant to the focus of this blog, which had unknowingly become established over time to – anime commentaries, essays, and just lots of posts about having no writing inspiration.
But I figured its probably time to write about one, mostly because I have been in the community for so long and yet I think, people don’t actually know me much. They know only what I write and what I choose to put on here, but I rarely communicate with people about anything outside the context of this blog.
But at this point in time, there are really a few things about my life that I think my readers need to know. I actually thought of skipping out this post because I am so pressed for time at this current point, but I realised there was one less deadline I had to meet and hence I ended up writing this.
Sorry for the wall of text as usual people. Read what you deem important.
Personal post. Mild spoiler for Daiya no Ace. Feel free to skip.
Recently, I showed my mother, a complete newbie to anime, the Sakurazawa vs Inashiro match in Daiya no Ace as an introduction to anime.
Throughout the one year and close to three months of the blogging community, I have come to realise that I have never provided much context to my opinions on anime, and what anime means to me. I thought they were too unimportant and uninteresting.
That is, until I read numerous such posts from other bloggers, and I realised how my different my experience is with anime as compared to others. Most importantly, I realised that providing the context of my experience is to certain opinions I write is quite relevant, especially when my preferences may border on being ‘different’ from most of my counterparts.
I won’t proclaim to deliver the most entertaining of stories below, but I believe that there is something in this post that would be of interest to any reader.
How it all began
I realised I haven’t done an update for at least a year or so. At the very least, not in the form of this very casual, conversational-like tone which I am using right now. The past posts that are similar to this are either posts on self-reflection, or posts that generally aim to tell a narrative of sorts. Not this tone that some of you see glimpses of on Twitter (given that 140 characters do not give you much to work with from the start anyways.)
Yes, Shiroyuni has jumped on the Twitter bandwagon
because she needs another social media account to waste more time on.
Anyways, first follow goes to @miyukiobsessed a.k.a. Crimson‘s blog twitter because its just the easiest one to remember for now *wink wink*.
As for the rest of you, I have no idea how to find your Twitter info except for stalking Crimson for now or clicking on Twitter’s suggestions. I mean I could also scroll through each and every one of your blogs but I haven’t found the time yet.
So it means that EITHER I add you guys slowly …
OR you guys could add me first – @shiroyunime
That’s all for now. Thinking of making an ask.fm account too maybe … but meh. One at a time 😀
Today is Valentine’s Day. Today is a day when half of us rejoice and half of us snuggle on the couch with a bag of chips, with our TV tuned in to Netflix or our computers set up to our trustiest online anime streaming channel.
Today is Valentine’s Day. Today is a day for pairs, not singles.
Time to continue clearing my award debt! Actually, as some of you may have noticed, I have fallen into a lazy blogging spell, hence the lack of posts recently :p Its a result of being addicted to Chinese web novels for two weeks straight. To be honest, being addicted to a novel is somewhat worse than being addicted to an anime series for me, because when I start to read everything just flashes by and it gets too hard to stop. Whereas for anime, I know at least there’s an end to every episode, and when that time comes, I usually think more about whether to click on the next button.
I was nominated by TwiceAlive for the Liebster Award on 29 July 2015 in this post right here. Once again, I apologise for my lateness, but as you can see, I am trying to finally repay all of your kindness over the past year and continuing.
And because its TwiceAlive, I expect to enter the realm of dreams, hopes and wildly imaginative questions with this post that require probably a lot of my creative juices. So here we go!
Ahem. So, I decided to finally clear my award debts. Even if they are like 23278436247826372 months late. And that the people who nominated me probably forgot they did. But its okay. I owe all of you guys messages of gratitude anyway since I neglected to do shoutouts of any sort. Besides, more and late love is better than less and never love. Even if its virtual. Right?
