    August in a nutshell!

    How should I describe August? Pretty meh!  It was one pile of mehs after mehs after mehs! (Here I go again not making any sense again and being vague!)  But ugh, there’s nothing potato worth highlighting this month RL-wise! All I ever hope and pray that September will be a vast improvement to this outgoing month. As they say it’s no use crying over spilled milk. So I’m not gonna—anymore! I’ll just stay positive and look forward to September for—

    Boring Lives, Interesting Stories?

    Not sure where I read this (I ninja mode on several forums to pass time, too) but it’s very profound idea of literary consumption that it lingered on me for a while! The gist of the person point was people are gravitating to complex stories because of their mundane lives! I think what it mean is to compensate the lack of big events happening on their everyday lives that they resort on literature as catharsis (which admittedly is my reason—

    Deathberries and Long Running Series Endings!

    This is kinda an impromptu post not exactly part of what I had scheduled this month. But I promised myself that if Bleach finally ends, I’ll read the final chapter. I had no longer any interest to catch up with the manga (maybe just about my ship but this manifesto solved that for me) but I am curious on how Kubo will wrap-up his manga. I remember the glory days of this series, being hailed as the “big 3,” many—

    When your OTP becomes canon!

    You know me, I never hid my persona as a hard-core shipper! And being one makes me all too protective of my ships, but that said I still set boundaries. But I still can’t help being a passionate shipper. I confessed how sometimes shipping & my OTPs clouded my judgment and take a huge part of my enjoyment over the stories I read and watch. And while I don’t participate on shipping war aggressively, in my little own secluded fangirl—

    Regular: What’s On My Reading List? #12

    So how was July, reading wise? A little bit of this and little bit of that! (or whatever that means! ) I tried few series but some didn’t leave enough impression to progress significantly! I’m trying to rectify that this August (and I think I did improve by picking up a great series to start of the month!) But let’s pedal-backed to last month and check out what did I read! Statistics wise, it was kinda balanced compare to previous months—

    Anime First Impressions: Summer 2016!

    Mob Psycho 100 probably has the most creative opening visuals!!! Loud, crazy and fun!!! Bones is slaying this season yet again! I was salivating for most of these shows ever since they were announced! And here they are, ready for consumption! And feasting did I do! The crazy thing about it (apart from their schedules—they are all airing on same days WHY??!!) I fell in love with shows I didn’t expect to really, really like. I mean, this is me,—

    July in a Nutshell!

    Almost recovering from a bad case of cold! I hate being sick. I hate it more how I easily get it from other people! But I’m OK now but last weekend left me confined to my bed with manga to accompany me. I used that time to re-read manga like Gakuen Ouji, Last Game, Koi Dano Ai Dano & few of my favorite arcs in Skip Beat! (amidst my terrible sneezing & pile of tissues on my bed, yes I—
