I’m pretty sure that most of you don’t notice, but my enthusiasm towards anime blogging has hit an all time low. I’ve actually thought about putting Anime3R to a halt for the past 2 days. Initial thought says that I’ve reached the PHASE.
What PHASE you say?
You know… the PHASE. The phase that every blogger “supposedly” encounters at least once. Where they start to wonder if all the effort, attention and time poured into their blog is worth it.
Hmm… Neh. It’s not the PHASE affecting my enthusiasm. I’ve been through the PHASE so many times, I’m practically numb to it. I welcome the PHASE. In fact, the PHASE is something I’d freaking embrace with my soft and loving bosom. Cause every time I get pass the PHASE, I realize why I’m blogging. For myself, my interest, my hobby, my entertainment, my pleasure. But remember! Play safe, Use Rubber.
Instead, it’s more like the shitload and shitload and shitloads of work that’s affecting me. It’s already bad enough that I hate my job, but to have shitloads of it just makes is suck much more. The only saving grace about work is the satisfaction I get from the one day of “rest” employees usually get after completing a large order. The salary comes second.
Well… screw grace. Currently in mid process of the current order involving shitloads of work. The boss already tells us to pick up the pace so we can rush on to the next 5 huge orders a.k.a more shitloads of work. Oh well, blame it on my lack of skills and abilities to get stuck in a job I hate. Still awaiting the day when I will be able to make a living out of animes.
I’ve always boasts about I have no life. It keeps my post counts coming strong. Well, life decided to catch up. Shitloads of work is one aspect. The other aspect, I’ve found a new love. No… I’m not talking about the type you get from the opposite sex. I’m talking about the passion of my new hobby, photography. I’ve always been interested in photography since the first figure photoshoot in Anime3R. No wait, since I bought my first camera.
It was an Olympus C150. Paid RM$700 for that piece of shit. 1.3 megapixel. No optical zoom. 64MB storage. Second camera, Panasonic Lumix Fs-7. Rm$590. 10megapixel of smooth compact goodness. Leica lens. 4gigs of storage. Morgan’s Law farking ownz you.
Fast forward a few months, and I now have my first D-SLR, a Sony a300. I just could not resist the temptation after seeing the infinite possibilities which a RAW photo file allows. But it was the photo-shoot from last week which shot my interest sky high.
Now, every time I sit in front of the computer, getting ready to draft an anime review and nothing comes out. Even after watching good animes like Spice and Wolf Season 1 and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (In progress). Instead, what goes through my mind is how I’m going to do a Haruhi Gekisou shoot. And also for my upcoming figures.
I don’t know if this is just a phase? Or if it will pass by anytime soon. But I do know what I want, and for now, I want (and will)
1) Revamp Anime3R yet again, as per previous mood swing.
2) Cut down on anime reviews and try to increase topic on other categories. Hopefully cos-play photography. Xp
3) Try to achieve a more friendly and welcoming blog. Rather than the slightly professional (“wannabe”) atmosphere I now have in my blog.
4) Also expect a name change. -.-“
