I’m Still Alive, Tired, But Still Kickin’!

Hey Hey All You Wonderful Heroes and Travelers (gosh, it’s been awhile since I said that), I hope you guys didn’t miss me too much! This post signifies my official return to blogging, I meant to come back sooner, but, I quite liked the break so I wound up staying away much longer than I planned. Though, granted, I was still pretty active on Twitter and Instagram. I’ve also been crocheting up a storm for my Etsy store, Poke’s Amigumuri Pals, and on top of that I’ve been out and about, exploring and growing, which left very little time for blogging…. but, I am back and I hope to resume blogging as usual next week. In the meantime, I’ll be posting a few Kickstarter campaign posts and some demo reviews (hopefully I can get them done before Otakon).


What’s New

  • My Blogiverary is on the horizon (August 11th), apparently, I’ve been blogging for two years, though, I could have sworn it was much longer than that… I plan on doing something special for that. What that special something will be, I have no clue, but whatever it is, it will be epic!!
  • I opened up my very own Etsy store, Poke’s Amigumuri Pals for all my amigurumi (crochet) dolls. The store specializes in faceless dolls (but, I can give them faces if someone is dead set on it). I am open to commissions and custom orders, so if you have a game character, anime character, or whatever that you want to own in doll form, just shoot me a message and I can work with you!
  • Most of you guys should know that I am a writer for the anime news site, MANGA.TOKYO, which also contributed to the blogging hiatus (just a bit though). I’ve written a few articles for them so far, and there are more on the way (just gotta find the time to crank em out), but the real news is that I’ll be covering the anime convention, Otakon as press for the site this weekend! This is my first time doing something like this, and while I’m nervous as hell, it should be a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to it!
  • Added a Ko-fi button to the sidebar, because this blog is a labor of love, I don’t receive any money for anything that I write here (though occasionally a dev will throw me a review copy of a game) I come out of pocket for everything, so if you like what you see consider donating. But, it’s optional, so don’t feel obligated in any way!

Slowly Chuggin’ Along

I’m one of those, 9-5 office workers now, so the bulk of my blogging and crocheting gets done either during the commute to and from work or when I get home (right before I conk out for the day). That being said, I’m still going to be a bit slow with updates, but I’ll do my best! Just bear with me for a bit longer.

hug

I’d like to thank all of you for your love and support over these past few months, shit really hit the fan for me at one point, and while everything isn’t smooth sailing, I can honestly say that I am happy and a lot of that has to do with you guys! Every comment, tweet, message, and email means a lot to me (yes, I do read them, even if I don’t respond), so thank you guys for being so super special awesome!!

[Announcement] I am Currently in KuroTsuki Hell!

So, if you haven’t noticed, there really hasn’t been that much action this week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero and there are two reasons for that:

  1. Period Cube was released last week and I am working my way through the game.
  2. I thought it was a good idea to read fanfics on AO3…

I seriously considered keeping up with my usual blogging schedule, but the pull of my fave Haikyuu ship was a bit too strong, so I wound up not writing anything. But, don’t despair, I’ll kick myself into gear starting on Sunday… I just needed a bit of a break.

I’m working on something special for the month of May and I’ll announce it during this week’s Last Week Today post. But, if you guys need me, you can just shoot me a message on any of my social media accounts, I’m usually pretty quick to respond.

So, yeah, I don’t plan on posting anything until Sunday… everything I had planned for this week is now scheduled for next week. I will now retreat back to the warm embrace of Haikyuu fanfics…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Mar. 19th to Mar. 25th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I am so ready for March to be over, because this month sucked, I guess what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger… but, is it too much to ask for a week where everything just runs smoothly?

There were some positive things that happened this week… Like I finally figured out how to crochet granny squares (joining them is the hard part) and I got to hang out with a friend from school (she helped me fix up my resume and cover letter). So all in all, this wasn’t such a terrible week…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Feb. 26th to Mar. 4th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This has been an all around crappy week… real life just has a way of kicking you while you’re down! So I haven’t been able to do all the things that I wanted to do this week, because honestly I haven’t really been in the mood for it.

bad-day

So, sorry, if I’ve been kind of quiet lately… However, there was one bright spot this week, the Tsukishima Kei nendo I ordered was delivered! Yay! But, he’s currently being held hostage, so I have no idea when I’ll get to actually get my hands on the little guy…

Also, I promise I’m not ignoring you all’s comments and messages, I’ve just been kind of down lately, so bear with me, I promise I’ll answer them soon! Thank you guys for being so awesome and supportive!! 🙂

Earlier this week I hit 300 followers/subscribers here at Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!! I am still blown away by how much love and support you guys have given me over these past two year! You guys make all of this possible and I want to just THANK YOU ALL for being so awesome!! Oh, I also saw the comedy/horror film, Get Out the other day and I’m not gonna lie, that movie scared the crap out of me. That hypnotism business was a little too real for my taste!!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jan. 15th to Jan. 21st

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I’ve had not one, but two 3-Day weekends within the span of two weeks and you’d think I’d use the extra free time to get some actual work done, but you’d be mistaken! I actually spent the extra days off from work reading Haikyuu DJs and slacking off like a pro! 😛

Plus the Inauguration had me about ready to pull my hair out, so this wasn’t the most productive week for me…  In fact, I literally waited until the end of the week to start getting things done. Also, sorry in advance, I’ll be catching up on my comments this week, so some of you all might be getting a ton of WP notifications… just a heads up! 😀
