What a year it has been. I was fairly depressed in the first half of the year. I discovered that the friends that I have were mostly superficial thus automatically made them assholes. I lived as a hikki during those time refusing any social real life interactions and basked myself with anime and manga and making friends on the interwebz that are far more awesome because we share the same passion and interest.
My relationship of course did not last. LOL I wonder if it will ever. But meh, after a day I did not care anymore so that itself speaks volume at how I cherished them. I am sorry but not really >3
The second half of the year was fucking awesome. I made new real life friends, get myself involved in a community which consequently got me a new more satisfying job.
I also started blogging again in July after almost a year abandoning this blog. I decided to make it an anime/manga related blog because obviously spazming about them is an everyday occurrence in my life. I met some awesome bloggers and it kinda opens my eyes at how big of a community I am part of. Stupid as it may be, it kinda fulfilling. I love reading them blogs especially of Glo's and Snark's. It is not like I don't like the others, but these two never ceased to amaze me with their wit and (questionable) intelligence. I also missed blur's Anime3r and is trying to accustom myself with NaNeee?! OEG has become the rage since they started at the end of October. I have had such a great laugh reading the entries and always wonder how I will fair if I'm included in the list (so far I am not; showed how insignificant this blog is LOL). I probably will get eliminated straight away but is still interested to find out why. It could be humiliating but meh zis is ze internet! If I care for such things I won't be writing this shit.
I also started to collect figures seriously. It left me broke for several months but it was worth it. They are still puny compared to the others I am sure but all in due time. I find myself more into nendoroids as compared to PVC. I have become the victim of consumerism but damn those GSC's nendo are fucking adorable! I will only be interested in PVC if it is of Bleach characters otherwise I won't even spare them a glance. Goes to show that I am not an otaku despite people saying that I am.
I find myself reading more manga than watching anime this year too. It was such a big difference compared to previous years. I never was a manga fan. I only read Bleach for several years because I love it. Then somewhere or something that I am not sure what triggered my obsession of reading manga and the list just keeps getting longer as the year 2009 comes to a close. Maybe it has something to do with the release of shitty anime but really who am I kidding. I have tons of anime in queue and bloody hell works really made me less of an anime tard nowadays :(
So my New Year resolution would be this: I wanted to complete at least 15 anime series in 2010 plus at least 5 series that I have put on hold since forever. I only managed to complete 16 anime (excluding 5 fall anime that I am currently watching) and 11 of it were OVAs and movies. 5 series was so little compared to last year where I finished a whopping 29 series! That did not include OVAs and movies.
Jeebus what have I been doing this year? Why the fuck did I let work get in the way?! Being an adult is such a chore -__-
Before anyone started bitching about me lying about being a hikki, here is the fact: I work from home. I write for a living. Except for the occasional meetings, it does not required me to step out of the house for me to earn my money. Fucking convenience eh? Righto, it is =3
And thus, goodbye 2009 and Happy New Year everyone.
