Hey guys, just a few house cleaning matters. As discussed, I want to make more Digimon The Card Game posts. I have a lot of content planned. It is really just a matter of how the next two months go. As college, Christmas, bills from electric to dentist bills are going to make the rest of the year a little tight. Obviously, Digimon has 3 sets coming out from January to March. So, we will just see how these next 4 or so months pan out.
I want to do some 2020 reflections, both in regards to the blog and my life and just 2020 in general. Topics could range from “Weird things that have happened this year” to “Favorite 2020 Memes and Jokes”. Again, hopefully I’ll get around to making these post.
3rd, I’ll be advertising a few things in the coming days. The first one I am announcing now. There’s supposedly a lengthy mod for A Hat in Time called Breathing Sea. I’ve heard there’s 19 Time Pieces. The first episode aired just moments ago. Be sure to check it out!
Enjoy. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
I’m sure as most of the frequent readers can tell, my posting has slowed way down. Again this comes down to having not read or watched anything lately (though I am watching Mandalorian!). Work has a large part to do with that. Even today, I’m working 12-9. Though now that school is over, Jessica and I are rearranging the house and cleaning up in preparations for the holiday. We know were getting a new mattress and dresser so it is time to readjust. When we get home and clean a little, we are typically tired and ready for bed. God willing, we will be done in a week or so and back on the Youtube and Blog grind. I have done a few things with my free time I will post about in the coming days. They just are not Manga or Anime related. We are also bracing for maybe an even crazier 2021 and trying to make sure all preparations on that front are made. Who knows what the future holds after all!
Alright everyone. Again, I just wanted to make an update post and try to get back in the swing of posting regularly again. It is always good to do a recharge post! I’ll see you guys in the coming day!
As always thanks for reading and have a great day!
I love this blog. And this year in particular, I have made what feels like several post marked as life updates. This is just the next one in that long running tradition.
This break was completely unplanned and one of those things where I had to sit down and make sure I prioritized ending the long draught of post. Which is a shame. I wrote what I consider to be some of my favorite reviews this years. I had watched a handful of animes that I planned to review (including Tower of God Season 1 which I actually did write up.)
So, if I love the blog and had all these plans, why has it been over a month? Let’s break it all down.
School- School also ruins my motivation towards hobbies. It’s a shame. It’s not always a bad thing though. Sometimes it is because I enjoy my classes so much, I actively prioritize school (weird, right?). Other times, school provides that good ol existential crisis of what am I doing with my life? This semester has been a mix of both. For starters I’m taking 6 classes which is near, if not, the maximum amount of classes you can take in a college semester. Only one is actual hard, but it is plenty hard. 2 or 3 require a lot of reading and video watching. and about 2 of them are actually pretty easy, thankfully. Well, 2 of these classes encourage me and are helping me decide what I want to do for work. Others, are making me reconsider everything. However, I am way too deep into the college tank to jump ship. Regardless, I was on a tear over the summer and during the covid break. School being back in session has hurt motivation which, in return, has hurt production.
Hobbies- I am a collector. I collect a lot of stuff. Mangas, comic books, and video games are some of the bigger hobbies I have. That’s without counting how much anime, movies, and Youtube/Streaming I watch. As a result, I rarely stay on the same hobby too long. These last two months my interest shifted from animes to video games. Now, I’m mostly reading comic books and I’ll occasionally fire up a game when I’m in the mood. This blog mostly centers around anime. When you’re not watching anime, it makes it hard to constantly write about anime. I’m trying to reprogram my brain into anime but is tough with all other good forms of media that exist right now.
Youtube Channel- On top of running this blog, I run the companion Youtube site, Dahubbz, I run a completely separate Youtube channel with some friends. That channel uploads almost daily this entire year. I am in almost every video as well as edit every video and I come up with most of the ideas. I would not call it a full time workload but it keeps me busy. (In fact, I have put off editing the video for today to focus on the blog.). I’ve tried to teach the other members how to create their own concepts and edit the videos, but they are not ready for that yet. Which is fine. The 2nd channel was my idea and I’m super proud of it. Nevertheless, there are definitely days, weeks, and sometimes months, where I am focusing on that channel more than this one. Back in August I came up with several high profile video ideas. However, I was really struggling with which channel I would put them on and as a result, I just have not done those videos yet.
As it stands, I have big plans for this blog and the channel. However, I might have to consider one day I’ll shift all my attention on to one channel. That time is not here yet. So, let us continue to enjoy the ride together. If you watch any of our videos or read any of our post, thank you.
I don’t want to make any promises, but tomorrow I plan to review One Punch Man Episode 1. Fingers crossed.
Good news: I don’t have any crazy updates like in the past. Simply put, I feel like it is good to pump out content on a regular basis. When I have nothing to really blog about or I am super busy, I like to do these updates. We’ve gained a handful of new followers, so I don’t know how much you guys know about me, actually. So, I figured I would just do a life update today instead of trying to come up with something to review or report on.
Today was my first day back to my college. Technically, my semester started yesterday with 4 online classes. Today, my two in person classes began. It’s a weird time world wide, but definitely here in the States. I have no illusions of colleges staying in person all year. Especially, mine and my state here in the south. Plenty of elementary schools have started and then contracted cases of Covid within 3 days. Wild. With some elementary schools, a student gets it and the class moves online for 2 weeks. Sometimes 10 plus cases in a single school occur and they move online for 2 weeks. My belief is that pressure will mount through August, and if by some miracle we are still going in September, we wont make it through September.
I still love doing anime, video games and manga reviews, so expect more as the semester goes on. However, there are a couple of me projects, as in real life projects not associated with the blog, I want to prioritize along with school that could cut into regularly scheduled content. When I was majoring in education and student teaching/job shadowing/subbing, I tried to blog more about that. Since switching over to accounting, I have not had the same drive to integrate that aspect of my life to the blog. However, with Covid messing up aspects of my life such as attending college and watching sports just to name a few, I could see myself blogging more about my personal life. I have a Twitter. I never use it for its intended use. I put most of my thoughts here.
So there you have it. A very short update. Hopefully you guys read this and compare it to your situation. I’d love to hear down below how your school/work life is holding up now that Fall is in full swing.
Have a great day and thanks for reading! I am off to do homework…
