Life Update (May 6th 2020)

I really like doing these life updates. I like going back and reading them and seeing where I was at in one point of my life. So today, I’m sitting in a tire shops waiting room getting 3 tires replaced. Jessica and I have began full time babysitting her cousins since their school is closed. (We get them Sunday afternoon and they go Friday night. And this has been going on for a month now). I just finished one of the weirdest semesters I’ve ever had. Not the hardest by any means, but certainly weird.

All my classes moved to online due to the Coronavirus. That really threw off the whole groove of the semester being entirely online.

Earlier in the year, my passion for blogging was on fire. I had what I consider to be some of my greatest post to date. However, I tried to channel all that energy into both the Dahubbz YouTube channel and the Dahubbz blog post (the site you’re reading on right now.). Well, the candle burned on both ends burns out twice as fast or something like that.

So I decided to focus on the channel. I started streaming twice a week and they were successful for a channel my size. We streamed custom mods for A Hat in Time. All our viewers really enjoy them. Right now, due to us watching the kids nearly everyday, we havent been able to stream much. We have plans to restart soon.

Of course, most of my readers on here are here for the manga/anime reviews and the Pokemon content. Well, I fully plan to bring those back in strides now that school is over and I can’t really stream and record as much as years past.

Tomorrow or so, I’ll post a blog about some of the options we have available. Jessica and I each picked up about 3 mangas last week.

I dont have a detailed list of blog post I’m planning. I’m just going to kind of post what comes to my mind. In the mean time, if you enjoy our content and want more regular updates, go check out the Dahubbz youtube page (if I remember, I’ll add links later because I’m on mobile at the moment.)

I’m just happy to make post again. I’m always looking for more creative outlets. Here’s to finishing 2020 strong.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Manga Car Ride! Make a recommendation!

This Saturday will mark my epic two week quest down to Panama City! That nets me close to ten hours of car trip reading time. I’m bringing Dragon Ball Vol. 7-8-9, Seven Deadly Sins Vol 2, Tokyo Ghoul Vol 1, and Food Wars Vol 1. to keep me entertained.

While I am down there, I will try to stop by book stores and comic stores and pick up some new ones.

So if you stumble across this post, you should totally leave the name of a manga or comic book I should be on the look out for.

You can also recommend an anime I’ll try to get around to watching it. Ideally, something found on Crunchyroll, Netflix, or Hulu.

You can follow me on twitter @Dahubbz to see if I find anything cool!

Thanks for reading!

Life Update: BatmanVsSuperman, moving

The drought is almost over.

My moving situation is basically solved and figured out as long nothing changes between now and the first week of April. I am so excited as this change of scenery is what the doctor ordered! I plan to finally have office space(If youll allow me to call it that) I plan to renew my subscriptions and buy some mangas. It’s going to be a fresh spark that I think will add energy back to the blog and create some momentum for the youtube channel.

That wont be until roughly April 5th. In the meantime I have a “Let’s Talk” session lined up for BatmanVsSuperman, as well as trying to read a manga Ive owned for like 4 months. God willing, I will start Random Wednesday next Wednesday, But I make no promises as it seems my time flies by here currently.

Thanks for reading this and sticking by. The ambiguous uncertainty has really taken a toll on me but I can see a light. Here’s to a bright future!

Life Update: New category, Youtube, and time away.

I fell in love with blogging almost a year ago. It was place to talk about anything: Mangas, School, games, you name it.

So why is it I havent made a post in nearly a month?

Multiple reasons.

  1. I’ve been sick and and unmotivated.

I had this cold back in February and it was not that bad. It keep me bed for long periods of time, because more than I was sick, I was just always tired. I don’t sleep right to begin with but I was always woke up before 11am. I can’t really say I have since I got this cold. Which makes being productive hard when I sleep for half the day.

2. School work out of nowhere.

If you follow my blog any you know in January I was doing a daily blog(If you didnt check it out than I highly recommend it) and was taking five classes and trying to start working. I was completely fine than. However, somewhere along the line my classes up’d the work out of nowhere and so many test, and written assignments, and discussions were due. I had to drop 2 classes just to even be able to balance all the things I was doing. It sucked.

3. Started a Youtube Channel

I’ve stated before Youtube was my first love. I started my first channel back in ’09 and slowly fell out of it. I went out and bought my first mic and editing software and fired up the dream once more. I started blogging back last summer. This Youtube channel has been in the works since the summer of 13. While the blog was a spur-of-the-moment thing and the youtube channel has been very calculated, I wanted to give equal attention. Sadly, I have not. The blog actually takes a lot of time and money(in some instances). Somewhere along the lines my time shrunk. This also goes hand in hand with motivation. Sometimes recording a youtube video is as easy as hitting record, playing the game, and just talking along with it. The blog, however, I either have to watch an entire anime, read a volume, or what have you, and than plan it out.

4. Decreasing Quality

Maybe the biggest reason. Watching anime, reading manga, playing the games, is not the the hard part. It’s the planning the post. I like to be insightful, unbiased, and salt in my own brand of off beat humor. I begun waiting to the last moment and just throwing together material and it got to the point of asking myself “Would I actually read this myself”. This has slowed me down greatly. Everything stems from being unmotivated. I get basically no hours at my job, my apartment is up for inspection later this month, I’m in this weird transition period between possibly transferring colleges and moving nearly 6 hours away, and everything kind of has me in a funk. One of the few things making me happy is making videos and my voice has been gone for the better half of a month so I cant even do that.

*Next topic*

As the title suggest, I am going to talk about youtube.

I am currently doing a Pokmeon Golden Age Let’s Play. I think it is going to finish up with 8 or 9 videos. I also do unboxings every Saturday. I’ve already opened two mew collection boxes and will be opening the Celebi box sometime this week! I also will be opening the dual box for Magic the Gathering and the latest structure deck of Yugioh. My top fives will eventually migrate over to the channel as well. I’m working on putting together a let’s play of Pokemon Gray Topaz and Zelda: Minish Cap. I’m debating on doing Dragon Ball Z Legacy of Goku 2 and Super Mario 64. Anime and Manga reviews may or may not move over to the channel(They may stay a blog exclusive)

Go Subscribe to Dahubbz on Youtube.

*Last Topic*

A new category. Crunchyroll has a random feature that will assign you a random episode to watch. I want to integrate this into the blog. I will watch episode one of a random anime that crunchyroll spits out at me and give my opinions on it and call this “Random Wednesday”. It’s just a test run but I’ll try it out either this Wednesday or the next so be on the look out!

Daily Post: February 15th

Hey guys! Leave it to me to get sick on the day my three page paper is due. Ugh!

I’ll be back tomorrow, given it does not get worse.

Oh, well.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back tomorrow where I might be better and back to writing! haha

Daily Post: February 13th

Sooo, Wednesday I babysat until Midnight, Thursday was out til past midnight, Friday I babysat until Midnight, and probably will be babysitting until midnight again tonight.  I’m putting Daily Blog on a little break, because I have had no planning time. I have a huge exam and project due tomorrow.

Basically, all this week I have had no planning time for the daily post and like 3-5 of my last post have be me making something up really quick for the sake of posting daily.

I love the Legend of Zelda series and want to do it justice, which I haven’t this week.

I’m already working on some topics for next week.

I hope to return Monday with a Manga Monday review and new daily post. Also, I’m hoping to be announcing two big things next week. So bare with me. I’ll return Monday.

Until then, thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back Monday for more content!

Enjoy your weekend.

100th Post

Today were not doing  Daily Post Challenge. Instead, I’m making a simple post. This will be my 100th post on DaHubbz.

This channel is not huge in any sense of the word, however, the regulars that have flocked to my post have been truly great.

Some people comment.
Some people give likes.
Some people simply read.

But regardless that means a lot to me.

I started back in June(July?) with the sole intent of meeting people to chat about Pokemon and Anime. And that’s what I’ve done. I look forward to logging in every day to chat with cool people.

January was our biggest month. Post everyday was challenging with school, but I’m glad I stuck with it.

I thought that would be the biggest thing I did on this account, but I have a project coming up that I hope you guys will enjoy.

I’m still learning to be a good blogger. I’m still developing my own personality and style. I’m still working on networking and meeting new people.(I rarely comment on stuff. I gotta change that this year).

Anyway, I hope you guys have enjoyed the content so far. I’m open to reviewing any anime or manga. Follow me on here and get involved with the content. Follow me on twitter and let’s chat.

Here’s to a good year and 100 more post. Thanks to everyone who motivated me to keep blogging

As always, thanks for reading!

Check back tomorrow for more daily post!

My Life as a Teacher Update

So if you’ve read any of my other post from this topic, you know I’ve been trying and waiting patiently to become a substitute teacher. I did not check what day I put the other post up but I think it was near August. I finally got a call back from my county in December. I missed getting to start by a few days(Winter Break started). So, I got everything turned in first thing in January. This Tuesday, I finally got a call back for an interview. That interview was today, and I am very proud to announce that I should start subbing very soon. She said as early as tomorrow, but we will see about that.

I will more than likely make a post about my first day subbing, whenever that may be. If you are interested in becoming a teacher or a sub, I’d love to hear your story and offer any advice I can(I’m studying education in college).

Anyway, this will probably be the inspiration to today’s daily post, so make you check back later today for that!

January 1st! A New Year Update

Here we are! The first day of the year. The first blog of the year. The first update of the year. Honestly, I am super excited for this year. Why? Were trying something new here. I don’t want to call it a daily blog. No, it’s more of a challenge. Were going to do a 30 day challenges(Some months 28, some months 31). Each month will have it’s own theme. This month will be Pokemon. It’s one of my favorite topics and generally gets some response in the comment section when I do a pokemon post. So January 2nd through the 31st will be a daily post about pokemon. February will be the same style just a new theme.

I’ll try to keep Manga Mondays, Anime Reviews, Top Fives and Miscellaneous Reviews coming on a normal basis.

My school is starting back up and it should not interfere with the daily blog, but it might slow some of the other stuff down. I should also be starting my first semester as substitute this month.

Anyway, I know this is coming out on the 2nd EST. A late Christmas party had me out all day. Anyway, expect a new post later this day!

Manga Monday will be back next week!

This is first in a small little series of updates with some pretty big news coming the closer we get to my birthday(November 23rd) and the new years! I picked up Neon Genesis Evangelion and will read it throughout this week and be ready to talk about it Monday. Yes, MANGA MONDAY(This link and the rest just lead you to their respective catergories on my blog) IS BACK

I got another test tomorrow(They just keep coming). I’ll also try to work on some more Magic Monday so we can get that going again. Still no word on when I might testify, but I might have news regarding a new job, which hopefully means we can get reviews up more often! I am still trying to get caught up on fall animes(Though I have no idea on what I want to even watch this season so suggestions would be great!). I will also try to get some more top 5’s going.

Tomorrow I will give a shout out to all the awarenesses for the month of November

I am slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things. Things keep coming up that keep derailing my momentum.

I am going to try to use twitter more so go follow me Here for more updates! I got a lot of fun stuff I want to do on there, but I need more followers to make it really fun. Help make it happen!

Check Back Tomorrow for a new post!
