Mainly a ‘I-felt-like-writing-so-I-wrote-something’ type of blog post. It’s a random mess of thoughts, so be warned.
I’m not entirely sure what drove me to log in and attempt to make a post in the first place.
I suppose it has to do with it being New Year’s Eve and now is the time for reflection and trips down the memory lane for all that has happened this year. And that has led me to realize that… well, I didn’t really accomplish much this year and have pretty much abandoned this blog (and my online life) despite that.
That’s actually a result of a major lack of interest towards anything or anyone (which is terrifying in a way — seeing as how I used to pay attention to every scrap of information about Mizuki Nana before). I could blame this on RL and say it’s all due to busy schedules, but really, I’m clutching a smartphone in my hand most of the time just like every other person in a developed country — it’s not hard for me to try to keep up with anime/gaming/singers like I used to. So… I don’t know what happened, but I just couldn’t find myself in the same obsessed state for any one thing the same way as before.
Although if I were to be completely honest, the last 2 months did have something that pulled me into a slight craze (to the point where I FINALLY signed up for twitter just so I could
stalk follow the actresses). And that something was SeraMyu -Un Nouveau Voyage-. Fujioka Sayaka was such a perfect Michiru that she left me in awe for days. Still impatiently waiting for them to release the musical onto DVD.
Beyond that, everything else feels like a blur. I don’t remember very much about this year (I guess if there was a trigger, I’d remember it but that also means there was nothing major that I felt defined 2015 for me).
Well, I suppose I did get a new phone in November and a PS4 on Boxing Day… Both of which are recent events so it doesn’t really count.
I’m not sure what my plans are for 2016 in terms of restarting my online life. I want to, but it’s hard to keep myself motivated on my own (I’m a very typical “I work hard to satisfy other’s expectations but become very lazy when it is my own expectations” type of person”… I believe the term to describe this type of personality was “obliger”?). However, I do miss the feeling of accomplishing something when I post a translation or something like that. Ultimately, I’m aware it’s all just self-satisfaction (because nobody else really cares!), but I guess when I look back on all the posts that date back of 2008 — I kinda miss those days…
Now, as I personally do not know where I am going with these ramblings, I’m going to end it here and go re-watch SeraMyu or find some good music to listen to… ^^;;
HAPPY NEW YEAR to anyone who stumbled across this and decided to read through this mess of ramblings!
