I have come down to the conclusion that I can’t live without this blog. Okay, so maybe that’s an overstatement but still … Two months of trying to stay away was difficult. Every day, I found myself coming back here starting a post then running away thinking “I can’t do this! I have to study!” Then there’s the fact that whenever I try to write a post, I’m never quite satisfied with it.
Conclusion? I give up blogosphere. My soul is yours for the taking.So where was I these past two months? Well, everywhere and nowhere at once. I’ve been trying to keep up with the latest, but I’ve often found myself watching anime and doing things at my own pace. I think the only good thing that came from my “pause” was remembering that I don’t have to force myself to know everything. I think I like my sort of isolated bubble in which I watch and read only whatever I want.
That said. I’m out of the loop. Hetalia and K-ON! are the two only two anime I’m keeping up with consistently. I’ve been putting off FMA: Brotherhood and Eden of the East despite enjoying both of them equally. I’ve also been keeping up with Saki, which I’m surprisingly enjoying. Congratulations Gonzo! (The anime is good enough for me to ignore Nodoka’s “big blobs of fat where her boobs should be.”)
As for manga, I’m only following Tsubasa Chronicle and Bakuman at the moment, but I’ve never really been a manga type in the first place. (I did consume a lot of yaoi though, but that doesn’t really count.) I’ve also been following a couple of others but I’ll write about those some other time.
Now, before I start ranting endlessly, I’ll get to the point.
I can’t do hiatuses. I fail at them. So much, it’s actually sad. Thus, I vow never to say I’m on hiatus ever again. I’m not promising to be more active or more interesting though. I can’t do that. I’m a slow and inconsistent blogger who does posts whenever it suits her fancy. I think I’ll keep it that way. Hopefully that won’t chase away the few regulars I even have …
Speaking of which, I’m glad I’ve been managing to keep a consistent number of views per day. I mean, wow. In April, when I announced my hiatus, I was actually planning on giving up blogging, but I wanted time to think about it. Well, as you can see, I don’t plan on giving up anymore. Even if I just have one reader, I think I’d still continue. Is that stupid of me?
(One thing I’ll never stop laughing about is how a good 10% of my views come from people who search “tencacle yaoi“. Hell, I’ve got people coming here searching for “Shugo Chara yaoi” of all things. Well, it’s now obvious to me what people are hoping to find in Death by Moe … )
Alright, I’m ranting now so it’s time to end this. I’m back; not in style, but back nonetheless. Not that I think I even left.
