I have been blogging for about three years. In the earlier days, I was much more inconsistent both in content and in updates. I blogged alone with little readers and feedbacks, so I just wrote whatever came to my mind. I posted a lot of personal thoughts on my life, school, random interesting things, and even politics once.
Through the support of many and a lot of luck, the blog now has some more readers. As such, I often feel an obligation to update frequently, to write better, and to have more relevant posts. The blog is not as listless as it used to be, nor did it have the ink that I originally intended it to have.
This is not a bad thing and I love my blog as it is now.
Still, I thought it might be nice to post something reminiscent of my earlier blogging days (at least in content as my writing has changed somewhat). This post is in some ways a nostalgia trip.
Personal thought 1:
In the comments of an earlier post, 2DT recommended Advantage Lucy to me. I really really loved the group. A few weeks ago, I got another recommendation for an indie group in an email – Spangle call Lilli line. (Thanks so much!) It is exactly the type of music I love.
eye by Spangle call Lilli line
Let us all laze around with a relaxed melody and the warm summer breeze.
Personal thought 2:
I am currently applying to medical school. After two weeks of working on a paper, I have only two words saved in my word document, “Personal Statement.” I really need to stop getting distracted sitting at my desk and get on with the application.
Personal thought 3:
This season of anime has re-sparked my dying interest. I am consuming episodes at the rate I once was back in 2006. I am keeping up to date with K-On!!, Angel Beats, and other airing anime while getting through my massive backlog.

While my time in Taiwan has been wonderful, the primary reason for my stay here has been to take care of some serious family stuff. It can get a bit difficult and somewhat overwhelming… I am more than ecstatic to see my family though. But enough with the unhappy things.
Taiwan, as the birthplace of boba (bubble tea), has the best drinks. Very fortunately, I live merely five minutes away from some really cheap and large drinks at CoCo, which is now officially my favorite place in the world. Milk, green, black, wheat, oolong, earl, coffee, lemon, juice, and yakult. Tapioca, aloe, grass jelly, rainbow jelly, pudding, passion fruit, and 米苔目. The combinations are endless. They induce orgasms in my mouth. And I know about having orgasms in my mouth. (j/k)
Anyways, I am having oolong green tea with tapioca, pudding, and grass jelly as I type this.

I mentioned The Aniblog Tourney sometime ago. I have gone through yet another round and am now facing Random Curiosity, who needs no further introduction. As one of the earliest and biggest anime blogs, they have done wonderful things for many anime fans, and they are well respected for that. It would mean a lot to me if I could have a nice showing in the poll against such a giant in the anime community. The poll ends in two days, so head over and give it a look. Poll is now closed. Thank you for the support.
Here are some recent posts that I think are representative of my blog for those undecided:
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
The Homeless in Arakawa Under the Bridge
Sono Hanabira Anime Spoilers in Yuri Hime and Hanabira 9 Couple
As a side note, I have received quite some pointed criticisms and they have been great. Further, the heartwarming support from people has also been just incredible and truly touching. Thank you so much!
