A look back at 2016

[This is a Facebook post, 1 month prior]

Hey there everyone, how is it going?

As some might have expected, this year went pretty poorly, perhaps even worse than last year. However, each time there was a different cause, and each time I learn more about myself. Perfection comes with its perks but also its downsides, especially with laziness. I am pretty able of focusing on a single thing for hours without taking a break, but that can also break my rhythm in the long run. Due to this, I usually procrastinate since I usually want to do something in one go, from start to finish… And I also cannot focus on anything else at the same time.

A new year, with hopes of progress.

Good morning to some, evening to others. For me, it’s 2 AM (4 AM when I was done writing) which is more and more of a common theme in my daily life, though today it’s more or less due to a bug entering my room keeping me awake. And a bit of food poisoning. But for the most part, it’s the pent up feelings that are keeping me up right now. It seems to be habit of mine to reflect upon the year and write them down on this blog. Sadly, there’s not much of a change compared to last year, so be warned for lots of negativity emitting from this post. This will be a very personal post.

[Convention] GamepitCon 2015

DSCN9570This week, there are three posts awaiting to be published. And all of them are anime conventions too! The first one we’re going to take a look at is GamepitCon 2015. This event was held on the 3rd of January, hosted by none other than Gamepit. From what I’ve heard, it’s the first edition, and it comes with something Japan can’t pull of that easily; it’s an anime convention held inside a church! It does come with its drawbacks though… Because it’s a church. Read more to see why.

Hey there, here’s a quick update on what’s going on right now. I’m slightly busy right now due to most of my university courses being FAT courses. You can take that abbreviation quite literally; FAT means that instead of having 14 classes in the course of 14 weeks, the amount of weeks will be halved, meaning I will have 2 classes every week for 7 weeks. So consider me being quite focussed on university at the moment. I will still try to post at least one thing per week to keep you guys up-to-date, nevertheless. So here’s what’s going on over the course of February.

Mandoran is back!?

5 Centimeters Per Second [Dual-Audio 1080p v2].mkv_snapshot_00.28.29_[2014.11.18_03.46.56]So, I think it’s been a whole year since I last posted something worth of notice. It’s been a heck of an emotional ride before I finally got to writing this post. In short, I decided to take a mental break after some personal circumstances. I stalled blogging my diary entries about my life in Japan since it became too much time consuming, a common problem of procrastination. Alas, I couldn’t find the time during my summer break since I had to write my final report and participated in two exchange programs. If people are interested, I could write about those in detail to wrap up the good things that happened during the latter part of the exchange.
