It's absolutely crazy to me that it's already December 31st. 2021 has been such a weird year, no? I say this every year, but time has truly flown by this year. It feels like we were all optimistic about going into 2021 after the somewhat questionable year of 2020 just two weeks ago. But here we are, entering 2022 after a somewhat questionable 2021.
Despite the rollercoaster of a year we all had, I'm focusing on the future. Everyone has probably published their own review posts of a similar vein, but I've certainly had to sit down and think about what I want to do with 2021. I don't necessarily wish to make concrete goals. After all, who knows what 2021 has in store?
Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I was planning to publish a review yesterday. Instead, you get this post - a little update. I hope that's okay for now. Oh, and when I say "small", I mean the length of this post. Personally, it's quite a big update.
Being honest is something that I've been wanting to do for as long as I can remember and yet, for some reason, I don't do it that often when it comes to blogging. I do think it's good to get things off your chest every now and then. I also think it's a good thing to be honest with your audience. So, that being said, I'm going to confess three things today about my experience as a rather small anime blogger.
Wow, guys. Life has been somewhat hectic lately. I know I say that every so often, but, really, a lot has changed over the past two weeks, meaning I haven't been able to deliver on content as planned. Impromptu two-week hiatus, woo! Let me explain...
There's no point denying the fact that anime is a large part of my life now. I consume it nearly every day, whether that's by watching an episode or two, or reading manga, or just looking at photographs of cosplayers on Instagram. Quite frankly, it's everywhere. Why? Because anime, as a medium, has helped me.
Today's post is just a little post and, as you've probably guessed, it's a bit of a personal one. As this post is going live, I'll already be on the plane to go back home to the UK. Returning to the land of tea, scones and queues is so exciting for me. Although it has been an incredible opportunity, I can't lie - living in the Middle Kingdom certainly wasn't easy for me.
Wow, so the day has come! I really can't believe it. If you didn't watch my announcement video, this may be quite the sudden news to read. But, yeah, I'm moving to China today. Don't be missing me too much, okay?~
Personally, I'm going to be making a lot of resolutions this year, because I want a challenge and because I need them to motivate me somewhat. I'm going to take a step to the side for a moment and think about my anime goals for the next year. What am I wanting to watch? What am I wanting to do? Well...
It's been awhile since I've checked in with you guys officially and that is to my own disappointment. This is honestly just a post to say, "Hi, I'm still alive" and that posts will be resuming soon now that things at uni have settled down again.
