If you're here for fic, they've all been moved topullitharder There's no need to join the comm. The only things locked are the WIPs, and you don't really need to see those. :D

CLICK!Collapse )

It's refreshing. With a dash of pressure, because I am still unemployed 7 months after graduating. My parents tell me that there's no point in hurrying, but I can see the urgency in their eyes (no, not really, but nagging daily about this and that job opening isn't exactly subtle). Therefore, I've now decided to put in decent effort into applying for work instead of laying around watching anime and kpop videos on my phone.

That aside, I passed the Civil Service Examination in April. What a relief. And Napoleon (my fish) is still alive! Happy 7 months to you, emperor. Long live.

I GRADUATED! AFTER 6 YEARS IN UNIVERSITY (just barely scraping by the maximum residency rule) I AM NOW FREE. Until, of course, I find a company that accepts me for who I am, introverted tendencies and all. Then it'd be a different kind of shackle that may or may not force me to wake up absurdly early once again, except earlier this time since I'd have to worry about a professional appearance (unlike in university, where attending class in sleepwear isn't entirely uncommon.)

We'll see if I'll have any luck in the next two months.

Well, well. Look who's returned after disappearing and virtually forgetting about this blog for more than a year. (It's me.)

So many things have happened since then, me graduating from university being one of them-- though technically, with the graduation ceremony yet to happen... That aside, I am also the owner of a new Siamese fighting fish named Napoleon. I got him last October to celebrate the end of academic endeavours.

Lastly, art blog, banzai!

-

I've been reading a lot of manga and webcomics (mostly manga) and watching a lot of anime since my studies ended forever. Sports, school romance, fighting, sports, magical girls, sports... ah, maybe specifying the titles is a better idea. (These are ones I started reading/watching from November to present.)

i did my best to make it vague but possible spoilersCollapse )

The anime and manga that I've been following before this period haven't been mentioned because then the list would go on and I don't have the emotional stability for that. So that's about it!

Until next time. OTL

When I'm not distracted by other things (school, anime, org activities), I very loyally wait for shounen manga updates. But then every so often, other genres catch my attention, like when the art style is too cute to pass up, or there's something about the summary that just makes you want to see what it's all about.

Hence, one fine day, after reading updates of One Piece, KHR, and Kurobasu, I found myself looking through summaries for something fresh and interesting. This is how I came upon Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) by Sakisaka Io.

From mangaupdates:

Yoshioka Futaba has a few reasons why she wants to "reset" her image and life as a new high-school student. Because she's cute, she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a misunderstanding, she couldn't get her feeling across to the one boy she has always liked, Tanaka-kun.

Now in high school, she is determined to be as unladylike as possible so that her friends won't be jealous of her. While living her life this way contentedly, she meets Tanaka-kun again, but he now goes under the name of Mabuchi Kou. He tells her that he felt the same way as she did when they were younger, but now things can never be the same again. Will Futaba be able to continue her love that never even started from three years ago?


I started reading it: first, because the cover is really cute; and second, I've come across shoujo manga with tomboyish main characters, and I kind of wondered how this one would be different. Also, I wanted to see how, "Will Futaba be able to continue her love that hadn't even started from three years ago?" will turn out.

Honestly, I did think it would be interesting, but never expected to actually love the story, you know? But I do, and right now, updates cannot possibly come quickly enough to satisfy me.

panels, spoilers, and a little kurobasuCollapse )

It's been a really, really long while, hasn't it?

Most of this summer was spent in university as well, same as the last one. =_= It's sad, but as a student, I suppose I must endeavor to act like one. Even though the ability to graduate on time wasn't granted to me by the gods of education, the next best thing is to graduate as soon as possible, hence the summer courses. Which I passed! Calculus (my second stab at it, and I passed this time with a rather high grade if I may say so myself) and Social Dance (I wasn't the best, but I was decent).

Anyway, here's what happened during my summer vacation!

probably some spoilers for khr and... yeahCollapse )

I'm not actually back. It's just that I found myself writing another kpop fic instead of finishing the WIPs in my comm, so I thought... maybe I'll just post the first two paragraphs here... to show you guys that I'm not dead or anything.

Recently, I've gotten into 2PM, somehow couldn't quite get out of it, and now I don't even want to. I even bought their Hands Up album, no regrets whatsoever. It's Wooyoung's fault for being so adorable. Which is why I wrote a fic about him and my second favorite 2PM member, Junho.

It's a Junho/Wooyoung fic (gosh, didn't I just say that?), temporarily titled: "..."

...Okay, so I haven't thought of a temporary title even.

His name is Jang Wooyoung. He's blond with chubby cheeks and a smile that makes the world happy. He lives in Room 405, and sprinkles water down to the first floor when he waters the plants on his balcony.

In 207 of the same building lives Lee Junho. He thinks about Wooyoung every day.


Now I'm 760 words into the fic. I have a feeling it's going to be more than 2k words, but no hard feelings (from me) if it's not, haha. Trying to get back to writing. Slowly. But it's working so far. :D

It's been a while! I think if my batchmates and orgmates and some classes weren't so fun, I would have regretted shifting into Business, but as it is, I'm just tired from all the cases and... coordinating with people... and people in general.

Anyway, I've been trying to open livejournal for ages, and some pages open, some don't, mostly the ones I want to see, which was frustrating and made me turn to twitter and facebook for consolation. (Tumblr looks like shit on my phone so no help there.) But before the internet decided to forsake me for a week, I fell in love with Block B.

Okay, that's an exaggeration.

I only fell in love with one songCollapse )

I feel kind of sad today. And a bit tired. It's probably just the rain, only I normally like it because it makes me sleepy, and that's the best state to be in when I'm in my bedroom.

To counter this heavy feeling, here is what happened in my Stat class this morning! The professor used this as an example to explain systematic sampling. (Not verbatim.)

a supermarket survey... or a serial killer picking his prey?Collapse )
