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).
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.
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!!
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Week one of being a working adult has left me exhausted, but I’m enjoying the work so far and I’m getting the hang of things…finally. Though I’m still not sold on this 6AM wake up time every day, I’ve been conking out the minute I get home everyday…
But, plus side is that I get weekends off, so there must be something to this adulting thing after all. Saw that movie, 47 Meters Down, and it was hilarious, one of those films that are so bad, they’re actually kind of good… maybe if you squint. Oh, and I read one of the most beautiful fanfics the other day, it was just so perfect!!
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! After months of job hunting and short term temp jobs, I finally, FINALLY got a long term assignment! I also have two interviews next week for full time positions in my field of study, but I am just relieved to be working again… though getting up early in the morning is going to take some getting used to, but I’m excited nonetheless!
The winner of the Super Special Awesome Giveaway was selected, so congratulations to Weekend Otaku!! Don’t worry if you didn’t win a doll this time, there will be opportunities to get a doll soon… I’m working on setting some things up, so be on the look out for that in the coming weeks.
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! My hiatus is finally over and I am back with all the fun content you love and a few new things too!! So, I am super excited!!
So, in honor of my return, I’m going to be making a few announcements, the first of which is a special giveaway!! I’ll put the details in the Housekeeping section of this post, as for the other announcements look forward to those throughout the week.
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Some of you may have noticed that I’ve stopped writing all of my weekly post series (save this one). Don’t worry, they aren’t cancelled, just on hold until June like everything else. I’m currently working on bringing everything up to snuff and for that I need a bit of time and with all the real life stuff I have going on right now, I need to prep a bit.
I will still upload game reviews during this time, but, that will be about it. If everything goes as planned, I should have everything back and running starting June 1st. In the meantime, I am always open to chatting with more bloggers and writers, so definitely hit me up and say hi, a list of where to find me online is, HERE! Also, if you want to exchange Blogroll links, just let me know and I’d be more than happy to add you, however, you kind of sorta have to write about Japanese culture and media (anime, manga, otome games, etc), but I will make an exception for K-dramas a K-pop stuff!
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but being an adult sucks… I can’t imagine why I ever wanted to hurry up and grow up, because I had it easy as a kid….
*claps hands* I’m still dealing with a lot of real life…stuff, so aside from a few otome game updates, this blog has been kind of dead. I want to say that next week won’t be the same, but… I’m not one to make promises I know I can’t keep, so I’ll try to post a bit, but I’ll plan to be back full steam ahead starting in June.
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Life has been throwing a lot of punches my way, but I’m hanging in there. It’s like the moment I handle one problem another one pops up to take it’s place… sigh, adulthood sucks!
Ah, remember when I mentioned that I was a writer for a new Japanese entertainment site, MANGA.TOKYO, well one of my articles finally went live this weekend! It’s a review of the BL manga Ten Count, I worked really hard on it so definitely check it out when you have the chance, by clicking, HERE. I also have a phone interview for a job on Monday, so I hope that goes well…
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Sorry I’m a bit late with this week’s recap, the OWLS Monthly Livestream was last night and when Kat, Lita, and I get together we always end up talking for hours (four hours this time, a new record). So, I opted to sleep in, on top of that Period Cube was released a few days ago and I have been swooning over a certain adorkable megane… *ahem* I’ve been otherwise engaged LOL
This has been a good year for otome games and I expect that there will be more releases in the coming weeks and months, so be warned I may go ghost during major game releases. I’m also working on a fun theme for May, so be on the look out throughout the month!
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! After a week off from these posts, the week end recaps are back!! WOOT!! I’ve been procrastinating all week, but since it’s been rainy since Tuesday, I can be forgiven for being a bit sluggish…
So, I’m working on cramming a weeks worth of work into one day… today in fact! But, it has been a slow go, because I keep getting distracted by shows and movies, Netflix is both a gift and a curse!
Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I apologize for being so late with this post, but a friend invited me to his Spring Choir concert yesterday and I’ve been either applying to jobs or playing Cinderella Phenomenon for the past week…. so yeah.
Also, there will be no Last Week Today Post next week… Let me repeat that for those of you playing with your phones in the back, THERE WILL BE NO ‘LAST WEEK TODAY’ POST NEXT WEEK… I just need a week off, these posts take me hours to write since there are so many different parts to it and I usually wind up spreading it out over the entire weekend… But, not this time, I’m going to sleep in on Saturday for once!
