It has been such a long time, over two years, since I last wrote a post here. During that time, I’d occasionally queue up a post, scribble a few drafts here and there, but I just never could actually publish anything. A combination of busyness, laziness, and expectations have led to my feeling slightly burned out.
This has been an incredible run, and Listless Ink was a project that I had put so much emotions and efforts into. I’m extremely proud of what I’ve built, and I loved it all.
But it is time that I moved on.
I will now be over at lystlesse (http://lystlesse.wordpress.com/). I need something a little smaller and more intimate. Most of all, I want a change.
I’ll still be writing in a similar vein on anime and such. So if you are looking for my words, head over there! Update your bookmarks, email subscriptions, or links. I’d love to continue our conversations.
Some time ago, I took a course in the English department—Literature, Animals, and Society—that had us read the works of Alice Walker, Roald Dahl, Alice Munro, and others. While literature was emphasized, the main focus actually laid more on animals and humanity. The readings explored large ideas: animal rights, gender identity, feminism, Freud, sexualization of animals, and such. The course also dealt with more immediate issues, such as stray animals, pounds, and conservation of wildlife in Taiwan. The overarching theme was a simple question: how do we interact with animals? The answer, however, is a convoluted clutter of contradictions and emotions.

The last semester has been a busy, stressful blur. Now that I am finally on winter break, I can take the time to think back fondly to that satisfying, warm summer. This is part one of two photo posts about my summer, 2013.
