New Year, New Comeback
Hello everyone, and welcome to our shelter!
It has been a minute, hasn’t it? It seems that the last few months flew by, and I didn’t write anything on our little Anime shelter again. Well, hopefully, this time, I’m coming back to stay. Things will be a bit different for sure, but before that, let me explain why I’ve been away for so long. There are three main reasons:
It’s not like my work has been completely nuts lately. In fact, contrary to any other job I had, this is the only one that I’m obliged to do the 40-hour weekly schedule and not a minute more. However, as you may remember, I’m working as a content writer at the moment. In other words, I write new content every single day. My days are spent on researching, drafting, and writing posts. I love it, of course, but, at the end of the day, writing is something that I don’t feel the need to do. Instead, I’ve been catching up on my PS4 games and getting those platinums! You all know your boy loves his platinums…
Sickness (Kind of) and Other Affairs
Don’t worry! I’m completely fine! However, this Winter season was one of the worst I’ve ever had. I got sick twice (losing two precious weeks in the process) and one small surgery. Thought things could be way worse, I lost precious time every time and had to compensate for the lost working hours later. It’s easy to understand how hectic my schedule ended up to be. Furthermore, I was even more tired than usual and with less energy to think about anything.
Adding to the time spent being sick, I also had to jump on some family affairs. I don’t want to explain too much about it since it’s kind of private – not only to myself but to my family as well. However, I had to take days off to go to various places to solve the issues. Again, putting my schedule to complete nonsense.
Everything is well at the moment, though… Hopefully, I didn’t jinx it by writing that phrase.
Not Interest In the Anime Coming Out
So, Summer and Fall passed, and I didn’t feel that I loved any of the Animes coming out. I believe they were excellent seasons for people waiting for new seasons to come out from very popular Anime. However, for folks like me who are looking for the latest debuts, it was not really that great. Or, at least, not for my taste. This way, I watched less and less Anime, where the ones I watched, I didn’t know what to write about them. In the end, I just felt I didn’t have much to add to the discussion, and no exciting ideas flew to my mind.
It’s 2020! Can you believe it? Maybe I’m older than most of you but damn… I never thought of what I would be doing in 2020 when I was a kid! It felt so far away and, yet, here we are, and it seems that only a second passed.
I decided that it was time to revamp this little place and start writing my comments about Anime again. Though I don’t really miss the writing, I do miss the Anime and, most importantly, the community. Therefore, I’m going to try, yet again, to start writing.
However, things are going to change. I’m no longer going to thrive for writing first impressions of all Animes coming out. I’m also not going to stick with a schedule. Furthermore, I no longer care about the numbers coming out or if the blog is going “well” or not. My objective when I started this blog two years ago was to get a job in writing. Well, I’ve done that. So, at this point, the blog is going to be 100% for fun. Do I still think of turning this into a business one day? Yeah, but it’s no longer an objective. If it happens, it happens. If not, I’m writing about what I love, and that’s it.
Essentially, what I’m trying to say is: don’t expect one post every single day. If I feel like it, I’ll write, if not, I won’t. I’m also not going to cover every single Anime of the season, just the ones I like. Maybe I’ll throw a few that I hate here in there, but only if the shows are so bad that I end up having fun with how ridiculous they are. Of course, this means that some seasons I may not write at all, but I’m finally okay with that. It’s better than trying to write about everything, not being able to and end up giving up altogether.
And, yeah, I think that’s it! 🙂 Hopefully, posts will start to come out next week. What about you? What have you been up to in the past few months? Also, what are your thoughts for 2020? Leave it all in the comments down below 🙂
