Here’s to 2014

2013 has come and gone. It’s been an amazing year. I finally have a driving license which is incredible, especially on my first try. I put on braces, which has been difficult but I’m looking towards the end goal and not the process. I  was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding which was both a … Continue reading

Something Old and Something New

I know this is supposed to be an anime and book blog. But let’s be honest, I have a lot of other hobbies and sometimes they get in the way of my anime watching and book reading. This explains why I don’t have an anime review today. Please excuse any tardiness in the month of June. … Continue reading

It’s been a Long year

and it’s going to be a Long post, so bear with me. I have a lot to say as this year comes to an end, and the next year begins. It really has been an amazing year for me. So many things have happened, that makes it feel as if the year has been longer … Continue reading

Books are awesome

Because there are 31 days in July and only 30 days in the meme, I thought I would share this comic that really conveys my love for books and what books mean to me on this last day of July. 63. CARL SAGAN: Books are awesome. The rest of the comics on this site are … Continue reading

Looking for Anime

I’m not very inspired with the anime I’ve been watching recently with the exception of Sakamichi no Apollon which is not coming out fast enough. So I was wondering if anyone had any pre-2000 anime series to recommend. I’ve watched the famous stuff like Cardcaptor Sakura, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop and Kindaichi. But there has to be more than … Continue reading

Fear

I recently finished my exams for the moore theological college correspondence course. I was doing OT 1 and Doctrine 1. It was tougher than I expected, but I’m glad it’s over and looking forward to the last 2 units for the preliminary theological certificate. Although I was quite apprehensive when I first started on this course, looking back I … Continue reading

Sometimes

I wonder if it is possible to be the best at just one thing. I don’t need to be good at everything, but to be recognized for one thing, regardless of how simple would be nice. And no, best daughter or best sister doesn’t count, simply because I am the only one. There’s so many … Continue reading

Playing favourites

I was bored and ended up looking through my anime list at the scores I’ve been giving the anime I’ve watched. I realized something, a lot of my favourites don’t score very highly and I was wondering why. Logically and objectively I can determine if an anime is good or not, but in the end … Continue reading

London Burned

Sounds like something out of an apocalyptic movie or anime. But it’s not, it’s reality. I’ve never been to London, I don’t know anyone in London, but it still made me cry. Why? Because the rioters and the looters are people from my generation. Shocked, horrified, disgusted. I don’t feel any of those, I just … Continue reading

Writing reviews

It seems a little late to be saying this, but I’ve never ever written reviews before. Sure i know for myself what i like about an anime or a book, but to articulate that and to be critical (not biased?) is foreign to me. I know for a fact that I can’t be objective, there will … Continue reading
