What I’ve been doing while MIA

June 19, 2015 About Me, Discussion 27

It’s been a really odd past few weeks because I haven’t felt like reading at all.

Wait, that’s not completely true tho because I did try reading but it was like all the words were jumbling together. So I binge watched TV instead.

I have a few things to share:
– While not reading I was a complete TV couch potato
– I really needed a few weeks off from blogging and the internet
– I got really really sick again (this has been a crap year for me health wise hasn’t it?)
– my lovely friend Anya from On Starships and Dragonwings will be here on the 24th and visiting for a week
– We are going to ALA in San Francisco together!

Suffice to say lacking my normal desire to read was pretty odd. And before I knew it I had let day after day pass without posting anything on the blog. It was rather freeing.

What have I been doing the past few weeks? Binge watching anime and movies. It’s been crazy since I don’t normally watch much TV. I have to admit I’ve really enjoyed it..I got pretty addicted.

Got any movies you think I should watch?

If any of you are anime fans let me know if there is a anime show you really think I should watch.

A few anime I’ve watched this month:
– Amatsuki (eh it was ok)
– Last Exile (rewatch of one of my favorite anime, science fiction/fantasy with airships!)
– Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet(futuristic postapocalyptic science fiction dystopia, loved it)
– The Devil is a part timer (funny but not much substance)
– My Little Monster (an odd but cute high school romance)
– Yamada’s First Time (silly high school romance)
– Kotoura-san (cute high school drama)
– Nagi no Asukara, a lull in the sea (high school drama fantasy)
– also a bunch of miscellaneous single episodes of a bunch of different anime whenever I try to decide what to watch next

Currently watching:
– Code Breaker
– Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing

I’ll try to post next week, I have two reviews I need to write. And I’m sure I’ll post about ALA. But I won’t be posting while I’m there. Things should be back to normal next month I hope. 🙂

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!
Stalk me!

    I can relate because I’ve been a TV couch potato too. So far, I’ve already watched all 3 seasons of Orange Is The New Black and read only half of a book. It feels so weird 0_0 Nagi no Asukara was a cute anime that suddenly took an unexpected turn full of feels.

    Hey, nice to read your post.
    You should enjoy some chilling time. We readers – we’re always off travelling and taking adventures – sometimes it’s just nice to stay home and watch tv.

    Anime Suggestions (a few of my favorites):

    Fushigi Yuugi (magical girl trope, but one of the best)
    Ouran High School Host Club (funny)
    Fruits Basket (funny)
    Sailor Moon (because it was the first series I ever saw)
    Utena (hard to describe, but I own all of it because it’s good)

    I have other suggestions, but I haven’t finished the series’ so I only suggested the ones I’ve finished and own. *grins* Sorry to hear you were sick! But I hope you and Anya have lots of fun!

      I’ll try the first episode of both and see if they are for me! I don’t normally watch the sports oNes because I’m not into sports. I did watch that FREE swim team one awhile back.

      I’m currently watching
      A CERTAIN MAGICAL INDEX and liking it.

    I’m sad because I haven’t been able to get back into anime, and I used to watch so much of it back in the day. I really just need to find the one that brings me back in. BUT GLAD YOU’RE WATCHING SO MUCH STUFF. I’ve heard about the Devil Part-Timer one, and like you said it doesn’t have much substance. I’ve heard of the other ones too, but just haven’t had the chance to check them out.

    I’ve heard really good things about Death Parade. Hmm maybe I’ll watch an episode of that RIGHT NOW

      I haven’t seen DEATH PARADE. I’ll look for it tomorrow. I just watched the first two episodes of A CERTAIN MAGICAL INDEX (looks really good so far), and the first episode of UNBREAKABLE MACHINE DOLL (cute puppeteer/ automaton battles with magic…kind of reminds me of an adult or college level pokemon lol) tonight. I think I’ll watch those two within the next few days.

      What types of anime did you used to watch?

        Well before my slump I watched all the Sports anime, and I think that’s what got me into the slump because I HATE SPORTS ANIME. I was just watching it because my best friend loves them.

        My last finished anime was Gugure! Kokkuri-san, which has no English title sadly. But it’s a weird, yet hilarious little comedy. I HAVE AN ANIME LIST. If you wanted to look through all of it??? It’s a lot http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Mellows

    As I said to Anya: I hope you two lovely ladies have a BLAST at ALA together and I also hope that you’ll take lots of pictures of your fun times together so I can live vicariously through them XD I’ve been in an odd reading mood lately too – even since the week before BEA to be precise. Since then, the blog’s been low on reviews D: I tried to get into too many books at the same time when the urge to read (finally) came back and well, progress has been slow going for obvious reasons. I hope you can shake your less-bookish mood soon though 🙂

    I’m glad you’re feeling better and will get to hang out with Anya! But I think I may have caught your non-reading bug. Just finished one I wasn’t thrilled with, and now I just want to Netflix-binge (with a little crocheting on the side). Maybe it’s the seasonal change? Your sickness excuse sounds much better. 😉 Have fun at ALA!

    Oh my gawd girl, that’s basically what I’ve been doing in a nutshell. Binge-watching lots of anime! You got a great list. I’m glad that everything sounds well and dandy. I’m pretty much on the same boat as far as not wanting to read goes.
