    Those bookish playlists.

    I told you guys before that I finally acquired the skill of listening to music while reading. If I’m reading a book I want my ears plugged with the volume somewhat high (particularly if I’m reading in public places, though that’s very rare thing for me to do). I want to mask the noise through music. I also listen to music while I’m designing/coding. I think I heard before that listening to music stimulates brain function. And oh boy, do—

    Tokyo Ghoul:re Volume 3 Thoughts

    I’ve been contemplating whether to push this idea or just let it remain inside my head. But I decided I might as well do it; after all is this what I now wanted to do thus the changes, right? I’ll try (the key word is try) to give my thoughts on Tokyo Ghoul:re per volume. The little detail that still holds me back is that I don’t get my copy as promptly as I wish (since I need to import—

    What’s On My Reading List!

    I’m bringing back my old feature which I called “What’s On My Reading List!” Basically, I’m just going to tell you which ones have added to my never ending pile.

    Evil Stepsisters: a book with characters you just hate I would have said Uchiha Sasuke (from Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto) because for many years he was the bane of my existence. I totally loathed this character’s gut. But he redeemed himself at the last minute that sort vanquished my deep hatred towards him. So I guess my pick would be Goodwin from Gabrielle Zevin’s All These Things I’ve Done. He was the boring guy who won Anya’s heart (much to—

    My First Impression: Summer Anime 2015

    I was supposed to post this on my other blog but because at the last minute I decided to merge it with Aeropapers, so as a heads up I’ll be posting this feature here from now on. I write first impression on anime I’m watching by season. I think I lamented the fact that I was teeny bit disappointed with the summer anime list because I have the last year’s line-up to compare it to. But no worries, even though—

    Hey, Rain girl is back with little Ms. Sunshine~

    Two weeks ago, I wrote this post confessing to y’all that I was ready for some changes. An opportunity presented itself when I was prompted to renew my domain. I was “is skycircus still the name that will embody the change I wanted around here?” The answer came easily to me, it wasn’t. So I decided to get a new name. I was in sort of dilemma picking which one; choosing from 20+ names I came up with. And thanks—
