Finally…

The marks are in and the requirements have been met. I’m graduating university with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. I’ve given it a lot of thought but I do not have plans to continue my studies in graduate school nor do I plan to apply for a professional program. It was a definitely a tough road and I walk away with a degree and many valuable skills acquired over the years. I still have a long road to walk and I still have a lot to learn.

Just walking to one of our labs...

This is my story and this is the road I walked.

This has been quite a term… these last few months has been stagnant. I haven’t been watching anime actively and this blog is suppose to be anime related.. since I put my site around some RSS aggregates. Just these last couple of days I am catching up and doing anime marathons on everything I missed during the autumn and summer anime season. This post will be just about the stuff I did. It is kinda funny. I would much rather stuff about my life to the internet where everyone can read it than on Facebook where only people I know read it.

Anyways, here is my list of anime I watched, games I played, guitar songs I mainly practiced, and stuff I did in 2010.

YEAAAAHHH!!

oh wow… I still blog

So it has been two months since I made my last post and I felt that since I got a bit of time, I will throw out some random updates. I WILL NOT LET THIS BLOG DIE. IT WILL JUST SNAIL LIKE OLD MAN. I should probably update and clean up some of the stuff on the side though. Oh well… on my to-do list.

Ok, I originally wrote this post up about a week ago but you know… stuff happens and I get extremely lazy. I felt that it would be a complete waste for me to throw this post away since I did spend a great amount of time writing this up.

It has been a few years since I last went to an anime convention and a lot longer to this particular one. Thanks to some motivation by some friends, I finally got around to going this year.

I was hoping to get a coloured badge since it was a weekend pass but apparently low budget or something. I also don't like the mascot girl that much. Too shoujo.

To be totally honest, I thought this year was going to be terrible. I was a bit surprised at the quality of many of the cosplayers this year. One of the things I enjoy doing is take pictures of and with cosplayers. Usually I tend to get people who carry props around to do a stupid pose. It’s what I do, I have fun that way.

I’m Lazy

Seriously, I got all this free time and I don’t feel like writing any sort of article for this blog.  Last update was about 3 months ago. My Twitter sees more face time. I’ve also drew a bunch of pictures that I may upload when I get around to it.

Ok so, to fill this post with content. A several months late list of what I’m watching and how I feel about it, using the first random screenshot I take of the anime.

These were the first two anime shows this year that really popped into my head from this year.  I did make a list last year that had Toradora! as well but it spanned into the new years so it isn’t exactly cheating.  I don’t think I followed that much anime this year.. maybe one or two each season.  The summer had a few more decent things… I think.. I don’t remember.  Fall lineup was a bit better as I watched a bit more but they weren’t great either.

2009 Summer Over

I don’t think I’ve followed through with any of my plans. Though that was kind of expected. I lack the motivation. My otaku self is dying and I find myself wanting to do more real life stuff. I don’t dedicate enough time to watch anime and read manga.

Though with the amount of crap this and the coming season… it’s as if anime is dying. Quantity rather than quality. I took a look at what is coming out this fall and I can’t say that I’m eager to watch anything. The summer list has been pretty much fail. Producers has been pissing off Haruhi fans and I was actually looking forward to watching season two but the joke that is Endless Eight or whatever it is called and the new filler crap has made me kind of dread it. I like Haruhi but wow.. way to shit on the fans. FMA was also a joke. I think back to the first series and how it was decent. I had the first episode all ready to watch but I decided that I would rather waste my time doing nothing. I lacked the forward motivation to watch a rehashed series.

I was a little more busy (socially) during August.. Gaming nights with friends, BBQs, and drinking. I failed hard during the local tournament. I couldn’t clutch it out in BlazBlue, so I placed poorly. Lost to people I know I can beat. I don’t think I will be a tournament player but a more casual one. I can’t dedicate myself to practice it online due to poor latency. Moves don’t come out and it’s harder to punish high recovery moves. bawwww. I think I will learn SF4 a bit more. Not going to get up into the higher level of play like everyone else in the scene but I want to play against them so I will fuck around with El Fuerte and play a bit of C.Viper when I feel a bit more serious.

Another month, another update. Just one more month left before I get back into the daily routine of having to wake up early and late night procastration on reports.

I haven’t done most of the things I wanted to do when I made my list a few months ago. Laziness preveils once again. I was too lazy to goto the anime convention which was just last weekend (and I didn’t have the the money). I’ve been practicing on and off with guitar. My WordPress theme is still on mockup stage. I didn’t attempt to improve my Chinese or pick up Japanese. How uneventful.

It’s been a month since the last real post but nothing really that interesting (that’s otaku related) has happened at all. I’m still using Twitter for random updates that isn’t worth posting. I’m hoping something happens this next month.

My random thought process right now is making it hard to make a post that is sequencial so it will be kind of all over the place.

Finished finals and now I don’t have to really study for the next few months. I have a list of goals or things I need to finish before I go back to school. I’ve already made a quick list on Twitter. But being limited to 140 characters really sucks.

No particular order…

A new year, a new school term, a new season of anime. Having entered the new years pissed drunk and ironically with a more focused mind. I have a few things planned with this blog and with my hobbies… whether or not it will get done this year… We will see… I’ve already taken a few initiatives to make sure it happens.

This is more of a personal blog post more than any thing so reader beware. There is a few cheesy parts so don’t expect too much.

Anime Evolution 2008

I am a little late with this since I just got back over three week ago. I’ve been lazy (as always) and a new school term has just started.

Trip to Vancouver

Heading to Vancouver on the 20th this month. Some of the planned places we intend to visit are… well.. we pretty much plan to wing it and make it up as we go a long. Although a main event that we intend on going to is Anime Evolution 2008.

Need to get camera ready and start figuring how the hell I am going to pack my stuff.

Theme Change

Finally change it to something more minimalistic and better fit my style. The last one was too incomplete and unfinished. Again, it will be temporary.

Many things I need to get done. I have a few drafts almost ready to publish. A gallery is being held off for a bit since I am not sure whether or not Coppermine is the best one for me. Just very lazy to do it. Mostly been watching anime… Amazing isn’t it?!

Let’s see if I will get a stream of posts over the next few days.

… Back!

After a long four months of not posting stuff. I have finally decided to give some attention to this blog. My good friend, Allen, whom I talk to very rarely will get to making me my theme in the next couple of weeks.

Now is the spring time of youth and summer is just around the corner. Which many people are going out to have their own beach episode… possibly two. Darking that pale radiation tanned skin. And some possibly attending a convention (or two).

So why have I neglect this blog empty for such a long time?

Melty..sona!

With university starting up again, I’ve been finding it a little difficult to find time to write up on anything. With 2 assignments and 2 lab reports due each week, free time isn’t something I have a lot of now. I actually wanted to do the dreaded episode by episode summary on Persona but the way things are going, it is unlikely… but you never know! I might have that sudden motivation to want to do something about it.

Lately, I’ve been doing more and more net play for my favourite 2D fighter, Melty Blood. I am still pretty bad at the game but it’s so very fun. There isn’t enough hype for it at the moment with very few arcades outside of Japan have the machine.

I’m looking forward to this summer when I head over to Vancouver and check out their arcades. I know for certain that there’s one with this machines. I am so excited for that. Also, I’m still looking for people to play against. :)

Why play games and not make blog post? No one reads. :(

Maybe if I get my code monkeys to work on a better looking WP theme. I have no sense of design and hopeless when it comes to coding…. and very lazy.

Christmas 2007

This picture is pretty much what my Christmas has been like for pretty much my entire life.

It’s almost been about a week since I’ve started playing the closed beta testing time. I absolutely love the game. I’m not spending too much time absorbed in it mostly because I don’t want to burn myself out when open beta comes around. It’s well known that closed beta usually wipes before the open comes around.

The game following the item mall style is nice because it doesn’t really force the person to grind themselves stupid until their paid period is over. The item mall states for the equips is still uncertain right now. Whether or not they provide any defense and such is still unknown to me since the people that has these equips right now are very snobby.

You know when you’re too into school when you look forward to the weekend in order to get your homework and get a lot of studying done. While many families are together giving thanks to something or people leaving town to visit loved ones. I’m living my life like it is just like any other weekend. With two deadlines coming up in the middle of the week and a midterm next week. Here I am.. trying to divert from doing work and just thinking about the winter break. Although I’m in a seminar room trying to get some studying done. I can say that I get a lot more done here than at home where I would probably just lie on my bed and try to sleep wrapped in several layers of blankets.

Schedule for my weekend.

End of Summer 2007

It is over. Not officially but close enough with school beginning once again. Those four months seemed to have went by quite fast. It’s been a half a month since the last post. That motivation to blog some what disappeared but I must not give up.

Getting two games near the end of the break probably wasn’t the greatest of ideas for me. Although releasing them near the end was also a genius plan on their part. Very close to finishing Persona 3. And going to do a few New Game+ in it and then do a fresh start from the beginning come winter break. I’ve also gotten Guild Wars: Eye of the North but no where close to finishing it. In fact, I’ve only played it for, at most, an hour. Great way to spend $45 isn’t it. It looks very nice too. If only I had someone to play the game with. Ragnarok Online is out of my blood for the forth time now. Hopefully for real this time.

The Heist

An interesting thing happened Sunday night.  I was out with a 2 other friends and since we needed cash, we went to the ATM to get some…

So we pull up and there was a money truck parked in the empty parking lot.  We just glanced at it and went into the bank just to keep the one withdrawing the money company.  The 2 guys in the money truck came out and it looks as if they were refilling the machine with money…

My friend turns to me and says.. “You know how I’d rob a bank?”

“How?”

Haruhiism

Scary.. Here is a collection of probably the most famous anime dance ever from around the world. Enjoy!

Lots of hype for second season.. I loved the first and probably will not download it until a batch torrent comes out. Once I start watching.. I won’t be able to stop and it would be torture just to wait until the next… wow I’m a loser like that. Maybe I should show my enthusiasm by reading the books or buy some little figurines.. maybe not. I’m too poor for that.
