I’ve been such a good girl this weekend I just have to brag 😀 I can’t even remember when I got this much done. This weekend I have:
practiced driving, twice! But quite short..
baked a cake
cooked two stews in the crockpot, made a chicken wok, lovely pancakes and tacos – made these into lunchboxes and done, most, of the dishes
cleaned the bathroom including both the washing machine and the shower drain
bae and me have cleaned the rest of the apartment
we had company over for dinner
phoned bff, mum and grandma
crocheted an amigurumi
taken a exercise class
pumped my bike tires
done the laundry and put it away
made the bed
done the weekly shopping
updated the blog
finished watching my animes
and maybe something more but I get exhausted from just writing these. If this is what I need to do to feel accomplished, I understand why I feel so inadequate all the time… There really is no wonder why I got burned out ^^ But for now I’ll just live on this short but lovely high ^_^ and slowly die on the couch…
The last couple of weeks I haven’t really started watching any new animes, it’s been too much else going on with trips, Farmor’s funeral, work etc. Instead I’ve gone back to basics – Harry Potter fanfiction, now that’s my safe place. However I did want to catch up so last night I viewed all the latest episodes of my shows:
One thing that struck me though was that I don’t like watching several different animes at the same time. I mean when I cruise for a new one, yeah sure, but last night no. Not having watched for a while I first had to get into the story again (I think I even had to go back an episode at one time to figure out the plot), remembering what I thought about it and all. Then when getting into it all again – it was finished. Not just the 2-3 episodes but the whole season – I felt robed! Usually I’d have a whole evening with one anime, it’d get nice and cozy you know. Not it was just over. AND that happened four times in a row! I was NOT pleased. That might have something to do with the unfinished plot lines too, I mean just cause the season is over the story is not. Maybe I will have to get the manga or there will be more seasons, we’ll see.
Me and bae are still watching Bleach though, now we are on season 4 and I really don’t like this story arc – I almost want to skip it but then I’m afraid I’ll miss a detail that will be referenced in the future – aarrgghh! We have less Bleach dates cause of this even…
I will start watching more animes shortly I’m sure, Food Wars! season 3 premieres in just a couple of days, woop woop! But for now I’m happy with my fanfic and also some crochet actually. I’m not a dorky diva for nothing!
Yeah so I thought I had found a food anime. Boy was I fooled! I really can’t stop watching though even if I’m not that fond of those kind of titties.
So my review of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma is that I want to see more 😀 I need to see more and I never want to try what ever Soma makes in his disgusting contest. If you need something easy, fun and slightly erotic or is just food interested this anime is for you!
So just home from work, chores where done this morning so I should be able to get in at least six hours of anime before bedtime! Seems like it could be almost the whole season of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou..
Update at bedtime: I ended up watching just one episode of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou so instead I saw a bit of Classroom of the Elite and the whole of The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi – I did not really like that one, not the format or the story, but I thought I would seeing as I like BL However, I did come across one that I quite like – Gamers! It’s quite stereotypical and all but still cute ^_^ and the discussions whether to play for fun or play to get good, I can relate to that! Especially since I usually plays for neither – I like the company and the community sort of the best! My ten years gaming (mostly MUD and vanilla WoW) was pretty much only for the friends I had playing the same, and maybe a crush here and there… It wasn’t that much the game in itself but the setting where we would hang out between classes, talk about strategies and character build and what ever. We would stay late after school, be there on all weekends and breaks (this was before people had Internet at home) and generally have a good time. I don’t miss being a teenager what with all those hormones and what not but I quite miss the simplicity of life – where the next big issue was the upcoming test or whether you would get your allowance or not. I think that’s why I don’t really game anymore, if I have to do it alone it’s not as fun, but I suck too much to play with bae and other serious players.
Well, I has just about to review this anime after finishing watching it today but then I came across one that pretty much says it all so I figured I’d just share that one ^_^ I need to find more of this ‘slice of life’ animes!
Well, it certainly took a while for me to get this done today. Between AT&T accidentally closing my repair ticket, not being able to schedule a new one until sometime next week, and running on about two hours sleep, I am seriously lagging behind. Oh, yeah, I still don’t have an internet. Fortunately, a good […]
So, got the brilliant idea to re-read some of my favorite fanfictions… Yeah, even I realise this is like a super-duper stupid idea! Like I haven’t spent enough time on them already ^^ But there you have it, some I barely remember while others come back to memory straight away and with it a smile. Ok, maybe the idea isn’t that bad seeing as I would only read good fanfiction and I can even skip the parts I already know and just read the juicy bits 😛
Main fanfiction on my list is of course Harry Potter but I usually try to find some new ones after I finish an anime I liked too (but I must have seen the whole anime to not get any spoilers, that can be a bit annoying sometimes if I get a great ship early..). Read quite a bit of Kuroko no Basket and other sports anime, some Chihayafuru, Ore Monogatari!! and Orange. Not all is to satisfy my inner fujoshi either some can be other couplings like Harry and Hermione or Hermione and Draco (I’m not a Ron fan and even Rowling has admitted that Ron and Hermione is a bad pairing). Most are romance I must admit but some are PG approved, like Harry Crow by robst – now that is a great alternative to canon!
My plan today was to clean the apartment so I found this new anime right 😀 Tsurezure Children, after 8 episodes I still can’t say what its about.. It’s just snippets of relationships. The episodes are short and jumps between quite a few stories. I’m guessing it’s a genre I haven’t seen before and I can’t say I like it – they aren’t giving me enough time to get to know the characters and to feel anything for them!
