Child Of Nuin

Wow, it has been so friggin long since I actually updated this thing. Not that I haven’t been writing or anything, it’s just that between photos going missing and my devices messing up and losing some of the entries that I was working on, I really haven’t got a really well documented months worth of posts to upload. And since I have at least a months worth of my life missing I don’t think it’s a good idea to keep going with my 365 blog posts. Really, instead of making me more organized with my life, it was stressing me out that I had to remember to take a photo and think of something to write about every single day without fail. I think it would just have been easier to do a photo album. I don’t know if I will be able to do the 5 year diary that my mother is planning on doing, but at least I could try that without feeling that I have to entertain as well as document.

So what is news in the world of me? Since New Year I have met some of the most amazing people, and made so many new friends that I am going to be really happy to keep in my life from now on. I miss some of them already, if I’m being honest. Annabelle and Manami are both off doing more work, and I miss meeting up at Hudson’s and talking over coffee, or having a drink after dinner and watching YouTube videos together. I’m looking forward to seeing Annabelle in August when we both go to Manifest together.

Yes! I am definitely going to Manifest in Melbourne in August (16th – 18th). I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to be cosplaying over the three days, but I might be able to convince the people I’m going with to be Marauders with me, like I was at AI-Con this year. But that… that’s a story for a whole other blog post. So many things need to be said about AI-Con.

On a slightly related note, the university Anime and Manga Society has started hosting screenings, and I have made some really neat friends from it. It’s been a really fantastic experience. Especially since the woman who helps organize and run the screenings is part of a pagan gathering that meets every Tuesday at lunch time, which is one of my one-class days. I’m really looking forward to being a part of a pagan community again, as well as a Japan-loving community. Cosplaying is so much more fun when you do it with friends.

In any case, I guess what I really wanted to get at was that life has been pretty good, and that I will be updating a bit more frequently, but I will not be continuing the 365 blog posts that I started at the beginning of this year. Life is way too short, and way too full of assignments, to worry about writing something that might not even entertain anyone every day.

I’ll have a post up in a few days about AI-Con, the highlights and the lowlights. I will also have a post up summarizing everything that is in the surviving daily posts I managed to save over the last month. It will have lots of photos, so look out for it.
