    July: ‘Cos I can’t come up with a witty line, so here’s a wrap-up!!

    So July be like some rain, more than normal rain, then there’s so much rain it’s flooding everywhere. It feels like it was just raining the entire month (I think it did) and while I do like the cold weather, it feels so icky wet… I miss the sunshine! (OK, my fave weather is cloudy…not too hot but it’s not raining) But enough of me talking about the weather and go to main point of my monthly wrap-up…so July?! Better—

    Why I rarely post about blogging tips & tricks!

    One topic that I’m very uncomfortable of writing is about tips and tricks.  If you’re just gonna ask me personally like in twitter or email, I’ll answer you because it’s very specific. But to give some sort of guideline and act like an expert is an overwhelming task that I’s rather not do. Even though I’m a long time blogger already (8 years here + some years in livejournal, then some more other years in some places) I feel like—

    Learning new languages! The fun, the hard & the awesomeness!

    When I was wee bit younger I tried learning Japanese but I quit I said why do I need to learn it if there are people who will translate it for me?! It was a very bad decision!  Fast forward to recent years I’m now self-studying Japanese for the simple reason of wanting to read manga on my own. Yes, because I became passionately in love with reading! And I realized that there’s so many manga that never got translated—

    Mediocre? Underrated? Like I care, I enjoy it anyways!

    I do go mainstream. No scratch that, I tend to like very mainstream stuff… There’s a reason why they’re highly popular, there’s something that connects it easily to its audience. But once in a while, I find some awesome entertainment in the form of average kind of narrative. Nothing mind-blowing. Not really deep. It’s not even unconventional. It’s just a plain, plain story, and you know what, sometimes the simplicity of it makes it an ideal read for me. I’m—

    Blogging in between RL stuff (#adulting) + other hobbies!!

    Let start this post with bold (overuse) statement: I love blogging, so I always make time. I need to make time. It’s one of the things I’m so passionate about that’s why I never viewed it as chore despite my busyness.  I make time for it ‘cos I enjoy it. From brainstorming for post ideas, writing the content, maybe in the future taking photos for my blog & redesigning my blog (not soon, still love this one to bits!!) Everything—

    The bane of my reader’s existence! (hating a character!?)

    Tread this post with caution cos I will mention characters that I dislike with passion. Now that is out of the way, let say this first: reading for me is relaxing way to put my ginormous amount of stress looming its head every now and then at bay. So I always, always expect my read to comfort me. Of course, the inevitable negative reaction is to be expected but nothing like hating a character to ruin my reading mood! For—

    The forgotten blogiversary…and why?

    Hey you, yes you! I’ve got a secret to tell: my book blog (which has morphed into what it is now) was created in October, but this blog started way before that! I installed WordPress in July of 2010…I started Skye Station in July! I talked about the drama (both TV and life LOL) anime, manga and sometimes books…But when books begun to dominate the content of what supposed to be my personal blog, I’ve decided to trash everything and—
