Hello everyone! I just want to wish all of my readers and friends a Happy New Year and take this chance to share with you a few things including my new year resolution (yes, my life has finally become so chaotic that I need to make list of things to do).
A year has really gone by in a blink of an eye and yet many things happened. I know that many of us anime bloggers faced several obstacles and challenges this year (like Yi and FaS). And I believe there were others who must have gotten through lots of hardships as well but were less vocal about it (I noticed a number of people has gotten quiet lately). Whichever the case, I wish you all a Happy New Year. Of course it won’t be a smooth and flawless year but I know we will get through it together!
Moving to other (less important) things. I just noticed that my blog hits has stealthily slipped passed 200k mark, an achievement which could be easily eclipsed by Glo’s recent massive 500k hits. Still, an achievement is an achievement, however small it may be.
Now, for my new year resolution, I’ll make it short and precise and practical.
1. On anime blogging, I’ll at least post twice a month. Obviously, that’s lower than I usually did but I’m trying to be realistic. Similar to my past pattern, expect more anime series reviews and occasional editorials.
2. On anime watching, I intend to take chance more often. In 2011, I almost entirely watched older or completed series as you might noticed from the reviews I posted this year. The shows I watched were usually praised and I was sure I was watching something decent at the least. This year I’ll try to pick newer (or more controversial) shows and I may catch the currently on-air show if I am available.
3. On life, I’m planning to study more and do better job at managing my time. I never really had working schedule and it cost me a lot of time figuring out what I have to do and cleaning after the tasks I missed.
Lastly, I hope that ‘the end of the world’ stuff is not true despite the apparent universal agreement among prophets (dead or alive). I am ending this post with my best wishes for you and my deepest appreciation for following this blog. Oh, and I’m leaving this video for you as well. It’s quite popular so you might have already seen it. But if you haven’t, then you should :)
