Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 14th to Aug. 20th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So I’m back on my job application grind and to be honest, I find the whole process dull! I have filled in the same sections over and over and over again, and I am so over it…

over it

Thank goodness for the weekend! I met up with one of my friends from school and we went to Momofuku… and my gosh was the food tasty! Their Brisket Buns were to die for and don’t get me started on their Beef Noodle Soup… After chowing down, I actually went to see Sausage Party… for FREE! Apparently I go to the movies so much that I earned enough points for a free movie ticket! The movie was most definitely not for children and I’ll just leave it at that!

Here we are again at the end of another Recap Post, where I highlight four interesting posts from other bloggers that showed up on my Reader this past week…

I don’t understand Shipping– This post comes in the wake of infamous Steven Universe Twitter harassment that led a SU storyboard artist to delete their Twitter account. Shipping is a common occurrence in just about every fandom under the sun, but some fans take it a bit too far leading to fierce ship wars on social media. But what’s up with all the animosity? In this short opinion piece, this blogger looks at the world of shipping.

Unlicensed Spotlight – Iryuu – Team Medical Dragon– A friend of mine recommended this manga series to me back in high school and while I enjoyed it, the manga was a bit too mature for my 16 year old brain. So when I saw this post I decided to give this manga series another chance! This blogger gives an in depth review of the series and I highly recommend giving it a read if you are a fan of medical dramas like House MD or Black Jack!

How the Biggest Bacon Eater Became… A Vegetarian– When I first saw this post on my Reader I remember rolling my eyes a bit. If you’ve read one “How I became a Vegetarian” story you’ve read them all… WRONG! This blogger opens up about her transition from meat eater to vegetarian, in this deeply personal and candid post! I learned about this blogger by reading this post and I have a new appreciation for my vegetarian and vegan brothers and sisters! This is a great post and I definitely recommend giving it a read regardless of what’s on your plate!

Gaming Crafts: Bulbasaur Succulent Pot– I love it when anime makes the jump from the screen to the real world. This crafty blogger did just that with her amazing Bulbasaur Succulent Pot! But that’s not all, this blogger even includes a step by step guide so that everyone can make their own adorable pots at home!! This is a must read for all of my crafty otaku out there!!
