I might be a little masochistic when I admit that since I haven’t written anything in a good rhythm for the entirety of the past school year, I found it funny to watch my numbers drop harder than the Kanbaneri hype did. Looking at it that way, it actually felt a hell of a lot shorter.
With that said, I graduated. With that said, I didn’t fall on my heels during the ceremony, and the party was spent eating chicken and drinking beer while talking about porn, and also watching my childhood Chinese friend swear she has never gotten high before, to consequently get high and and ask me to please take me home, Selena, because my heels hurt, Selena.
I wasn’t raised in the jungle, so I was the one smart enough to take sneakers with me knowing I’d probably snap my neck if I so much dared to think about walking on them for the entire night.
Anyway, either way, I graduated. Sort of. I still have a small (read: big) make-up exam to do in September, but that’s nothing compared to the workload of Nietzsche and Civil Wars of my senior year. This means I have more time than I know what do to do with it, because this year was full of set-backs, figurative hills to cross, a few close calls of mental breakdowns and sudden uncertainty over things I had never been uncertain about – but I kind of survived and I didn’t need grams of a cocaine to do it. That was a joke. I really draw the line (hah) there.
However, my graduation has been less than a week ago and I’m slowly but steadily finding my work rhythm again, because I want to do so many things that require some planning. Naturally, this blog is one part of it.
You see, I didn’t expect Anime Nichijou to turn out like this. And yeah, 5k subs might not sound like a lot, but I’ve met many wonderful people and had some wonderful opportunities presented to me that I couldn’t have gotten otherwise if it weren’t for this blog. And I plan on taking it higher, or at least try to, first of all I should probably write a lot more, then I should probably form my own identity a little better. I’m older now, I’m seventeen, I think I can handle that.
One of the first things on my list is changing the design to symbolize a new era for the blog, the design is kind of crummy right now, I know. Next I want to engage with people a lot more, and over the course of the summer, I want to start up a Youtube channel and see where it goes, amongst other things.
So, my unofficial hiatus has come to an end. Not gonna lie, I’m excited for what’s to come, and I hope you can all stick with me for this adventure, too.
(P.s: I’m absolutely lost on the anime scene right now, and literally only kept up with Mayoiga because, going back to my first point, I’m a masochist and Marx’s directorial debut Communism, the Anime is lit if you want to laugh)
