Holidays | Toradora Complete | Time for personal works!


It's been a little while since the last entry, I have missed you all m(_ _)m

If you are celebrating your holiday right now, how are you enjoying it?

This holiday has been a hasty though not stressful race of catch-up. Catch-up as in personal projects that can't be done while at college.

Not that college is a bad thing but, it certainly cuts the time down or is that just bad time management? (^_^);;;

Some shows that I've finally caught up on over the course of this new year:

- Air

- Angelic Layer

- Doujin Work

- K-On!

- Kannagi

- Kasimasi ~ Girl meets Girl ~

- Minami Ke

- Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

- Toradora

Some of these are pretty old but, as they're downloaded over time it is not the quickest way of watching them. Having just completed Toradora last night it is still fresh in my mind. It's also a show that holds personal relevance to me so... that may have helped me to enjoy it even more (*>.<*)

Apart from anime, there are a few doujinshi titles but, sadly no manga at the moment. Manga happens to be one of my favourite Otaku indulgences. No Visual novels either but, there's a few games I'm playing now too.

Please try Osu! If you're into rhythm games~

Part of the personal projects is the site update, of course. It has been a long wait and hopefully things will go better this time round.

I've found that having a blog can be a good motivator; do you feel that way too?

Well, this ends a rather short post

Finding old merch | Spending money | VN, Eroge, Real Life | Holidays


So, this entry is being posted a bit before my mid-year moderation and about 9 hours away from the 3 day LAN. You can almost smell the air of the holiday approaching!

Starting with the rather good news! This may not have been mentioned on the blog before but, I'm pretty certain to have said it on Danny Choo's site somewhere. Almost two years ago, I lost a brand new copy of Robot volume 3. It was still sealed and bought just after leaving high school, a treat to myself... in a way ^^; Strangely, I had searched in a part of the cupboard which was unnoticed before.. and there it was.
After all the trouble, it is pleasing to have it sitting comfortably next to its fellow volumes ^-^~

Have you ever found old/lost merch and how did you find your experience?

With the Ritsu-mode cancelled and the sale of the Roland keyboard over. My wallet has gained a lovely R1000 (about $100, more ike $120) of *pure* money.
Pure as in money that is suitable for spending on non-college related stuffs. There is still much thought on what to buy... =__=;;;

Have you ever been in a situation where you simply could not decide what to buy?

How did you overcome it?

Real life is so different to VN's and eroge. We know this already, just found it interesting that the latter is much easier *>.>* :cough:

Aaand holidays are finally here! It has been a whirlwind of a year, filled with many acquaintances, memories, lessons, nuances, fan-girling and much more. I look forward to a lovely second half of the year with you. Keep your eyes open for posts on suki desho as it'll be active again~
I also look forward to catching up on all my readers, fellow bloggers and bookmarks posts.
Please have a wonderful and safe holiday! m(_ _)m

That ends this post.

Art Exhibition | LAN approaching | Merchandise WANT Galore


With exams over, we are now preparing for the mid-year art exhibition at college. Since the theory part of the exam is over, part of the exhibition is the display of our practical works that we've created over the last few months, which will be marked or remarked... depending on which you prefer.
Since I've chosen to redo certain works, your mark will be set to a new average, I'm currently completing old and new works.

There is also the opportunity to create an artwork on a wooden block (mini canvas of sorts) and sell it! Well... the money goes towards the college but, it's good publicity.. which every starting artist values greatly!
Not a bad compensation before a long, 3 week-or-so break, isn't it?
As said on twitter... NEET mode on!

Anyone else planning on going into NEET mode this holiday, at least partially....?

The LAN is near...
Bring on the three days worth of gaming, leeching and all round madness!!!

Any madness planned in your side?

There's been many delicious figure, manga, anime, plamo, doujin, music etc. releases over the last few months, any of them on your want list?

Well, this ends a short little post [trying to post more]

Suki Desho Back| Upcoming LAN | Money & Figures | Dream - Ritsu Mode ON! | College Life | Everyday moe is killing - Himitsu


It has been an extremely long time since my previous post and generally a long time since being online in a 'regular' fashion.
That said, I have missed you all terribly TwT Whether I read your blog or you mine, whether we communicate on Dannychoo or not, whether we chat via msn or not... I miss it all! TT____TT A solution approaches and that is holiday!

When are you celebrating your holiday and what are your plans, if any?

Next weekend, the 19th to 21 June, I hope to attend a LAN. If you've been following my blog since last year... this is the 3 day LAN that happens monthly in my country. This year onii-chan and I are attending together, of course many of our friends will be there too. After the long months of college, intense gaming is in order! (b^o^)7

For my readers, do you attend any LANs? If so, what type of games or games do you enjoy most?

Personally, I'm into my strategy/FPS>RTS stuff mainly though I play anything that appeals to me.

Not really a rant but, something that I'd like to share with you.
Entering college can be good and bad, especially if you're stuck buying art supplies every day, week or month... and still have college fees to attend to as well. Sadly, Suki has not bought any figurines, manga or anything of the sort due to this. I imagine that I'm not the only one going through this so...

How do you cope with this situation or do you rebel? [rebel rebel (b^_~)]

For those of you who may be wondering, college life is really exciting. Although my course is Graphic Design, the college is Fine Arts based and as a result our course gives us firm foundations in both computer and fine arts.
An idea of the subjects we take: Photography, Illustration, Figure Drawing, History of Art (Theory),Research (AKA Free period), Printmaking, Communication, Design, DTP, Object Drawing, Alternative Media and Jewellery Design (also 3D-based design).

It's a full schedule and certain classes would appear more frequently than others but, that's okay.
The exam is an essay, which has to be written in 5 days....
That's better than regular testing, I suppose. The exam will be given to us on Monday... gambarimasu! >___<

Finally, if I haven't missed anything, there's good news on the other spectrum of my hobbies!
suki has always wanted to play drums and so, after confirming with the parents... it wouldn't work TwT [That was back then when] [Present] suki now has both the opportunity to get her DRUMS!!!! I'll still be writing music and possibly playing other instruments as well but now is the time for DRUMS~ (>/^o^)>/ [It's supposed to be playing drums...lolols, just made that smiley now ^^;]

Do you play any instruments or would like to, if so, which one(s)?

Holidays will start after the theory and practical exams.. so lets hope we can all meet (properly) once its all over >__<
Pic is from K-on! Which I've been following between college projects~

"moe moe today, moe moe tomorrow... everyday is moe day" suki

Well, that ends this post
