Holidays: quick update…

Hello world! It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done anything on this site. Haven’t kept up to date with all that anime, and the Fall 2010 season is already over (for the 13 ep series such as Arakawa and Oreimo). Bakuman is still going after passing its halfway mark, and steadily improving on its [frankly] tedious start. It even has a second season announced which is great news for fans of the manga! The World God Only Knows also announced a much needed second season, after finishing disappointingly with a filler episode (a good one, but bad placement. Would’ve preferred some more plot to finish the season).

Christmas and the school holidays have really killed the blogging spirit. After several weeks of intense yearly tests, all a student really wants to do is lie on a couch, watch anime (without thinking about what to blog about it!), go out with friends and party. For these few weeks, between sleep and part time work, I can easily say this is so far one of the most packed holidays I’ve had…as long as I can remember. Partly thanks to my parents loosening the leash, and improved organization skills :D So far there’s been fireworks watching, family gatherings, movie marathons, anime marathons, city trips, restaurants, fishing, poker, and a bit of collab work with Roger. Not bad so far, but more parties are definitely needed XD and homework too.

Just recently discovered DJ Max Technika! Such a newbie at these fun rhythm arcade games!

Plans for the rest of the holiday include The Kings Speech, Tangled, Green Hornet, city trips (need moar DDR and DJ Max arcade! ^_^), several more marathons, getting a grip on my solo electronic music project, maybe changing my bedroom to a different room of the house (smaller, but narrow shape allows for something new?) and hopefully kicking off more collab projects I’ve talked about with some friends! Got some exciting ideas that I really hope come to fruition. Might start writing film reviews again if I get bored of all the games I bought from the massive Steam sale! One 700 word film review will be much easier to write than weekly anime coverage!

Will need to work more shifts/get a second job if I want to have a even better holiday next year overseas though T__T Going job hunting at restaurants with a mate next week.

Rented FFXIII recently, didn’t play much due to my nit-picking on the English VOs (which are actually mostly good). Will have to import the Chinese copy with English subtitles and Japanese voices!

Apparently they are coming to Sydney soon. Haven’t really listened to them much :S

I wish SNSD would come instead :P Might have something to do with them being female

Need to sleep, shower and get up again within the next few hours…getting a haircut and seeing the hyped The Kings Speech tomorrow with family, so I’ll update this with a YouTube embed of my remixed song soon! おやすみ!
