As you all know, I have been slowly fading out in the anime blogosphere and finally had my longest hiatus that lasted for six months. Well, mostly the reason for that is my pursuit of undergraduate degree of education. Reality is slowly catching up to me so I had to increase my pace and be serious about some matters concerning my future. Also, the lack of regular access over the internet is also the major cause.
Well enough of my excuses. You may have noticed that I have been posting again some contents on this blog. Does that mean that I am back for good? Unfortunately, I have to disappear once again sometime soon. I am already in my last year so I gotta go all out and enjoy it. I will also attend a review school right after as a preparation for the CPA licensure examination. Needless to say, I don’t need any distractions during that time so maybe I’ll cut off even my anime and manga time. I am aiming for the top, afterall.
Aside for posting my “excuses” and announcing another hiatus soon, the reason for this post is well… to reminisce the old me – the old shiizumi – and my plans for the future.
A lot of things have changed over the past (almost) three years of blogging. I haven’t checked out my blog for a while so I re-read some of my entry posts. And man, I couldn’t believe that I was capable of writing those. I am by no means that good when it comes to writing, I can’t really compare myself to other bloggers out there. But when I checked those past blog posts, I was amazed with myself that I was able to pour out those thoughts and feelings before. Like I was reading some other people’s writings. I don’t know if other bloggers had felt that way before but it amazed me somehow.
To be honest, I wanted to get that back. I realized that I had so much passion before when it comes to blogging although I knew that I was also holding back “something” somehow. But right now, I think those are impossible. As I have said, I need to focus on reality soon. This second home of mine needs to be vacant again.
Also, I’ve noticed that I don’t reply (most of the times) to some comments. Man, that was so bad of me, right? If you’re reading this and you’re one of them, I sincerely apologize. I wanted to get those familiar faces back in this blog. But hey, I need to visit their blogs as well! I’ll do that soon.
I am really thankful to those new faces that followed me. Whenever a notification comes up on my phone regarding some new follows, I get somewhat guilty – “Man, I need to post something…” Yeah, I get that feeling. I am also grateful, of course, to the old followers and lurkers (if there are any) out there.
Once I get my license as a CPA, I will surely get back to blogging. Not as much as I have been before but surely I could post new contents every now and then. I will pick up these projects that I stopped doing:
- ANIME MOMENTS
- NATSUME YUUJINCHOU DIARY
- BL CORNER
… and other stuffs. But that will be, like, after a year or so. I am also planning on visiting Japan after the exam or probably early 2017. I am starting to save up money for that. I will use it as a reward to all of my hardwork. And besides, working for a goal isn’t that bad. Damn, I am so excited.
Anyway, this post has gone too personal, serious and non-anime related. Kudos to those who had read this up to this point! Thanks for visiting. If ever you need something, strike up a conversation on my twitter account.
Meanwhile, you can expect more posts coming from me in the next few days! Ja ne!
