Late Summer 2013 Anime Impressions

Last season I had a bit of an anime crash. You know those times where your interests basically fall elsewhere, and so it becomes pretty hard to keep up with a new anime season…Ya, well luckily I’m slowly recuperating with this season, which is why I decided to only pick up a small handful of shows to watch. There is still a lot I’d like to see so any recommendations or demands for me to watch certain things are quite welcomed! Continue reading

Otakuthon 2013 – The Friday Experience

Welcome to my adventures from Friday night at Otakuthon 2013! Sadly, on account of my boss, it was the only day I could take off. I still tried to visit some things and enjoy the six or so hours I spent at the con. It was a good enough time, but now that I’ve visited Anime North, it felt a bit underwhelming. Anywho, here’s the coverage of what I did manage to see and my haul of three days worth of loot that I got within three hours… (I seriously have a shopping addiction. HElllppp)  Continue reading

My Weekend at Anime North 2013!

Well…it seems my blogging absence is turning more and more into a semi-hiatus, but it’s nothing official or anything and I’m just taking it all one day at a time. On account of that, I guess a lot of really late posts will be popping up here and there, so thank you for still wanting to read them.

Anyway, back to my late Anime North coverage…I have been going to the same anime convention for the past five years, so I fiured it was about time to expand my horizons. I decided to go with the biggest anime convention in Canada because although I’d love to go to Anime Expo, I would need to save a lot more money! Either way, Anime North turned out to be a definite treat that I would no doubt return to! Continue reading

A Note on My Absence in Blogging

scene

EDIT: thank you for all the advice and kind comments!

Dear Readers,

Don’t worry, this isn’t a post to say I’ve decided to quite blogging, in fact this post is here to say the exact opposite. I want to revive Anime Princess. So why has my blog dramatically slowed down in the past few months? Well, I was writing elsewhere because the opportunity came, but it has now fallen through. There is more than one reason as to why, but mostly it’s because I came to a point where I just wasn’t enjoying my writing.

Lately, I feel lost about life. Nothing feels right and I’m not really sure how to fix things. I’m in a rut you could say, and my writing was reflecting that. Not to mention, I’m not one to follow schedules, and due to not being able to find much time in my life for anything, I had to dedicate all my time writing for another site over this one. I’m still happy for the time I dedicated over there, but I feel for this summer I need a break from at least a few stressful things in my life. I need to figure out how to manage my life and find joy in the things I once did. Blogging was never supposed to feel like a chore. I want to write things when the inspiration strikes and be able to create content that really reflects the emotions I need to have written out on a page. My writing is something very personal, and I know it’s nothing fancy, but it’s the only way I know how to express myself and I wouldn’t want to change that.

I just needed to get this out there, and I apologize for the rather cryptic rant. All this is to say that I want to try to go back to the days where my life wasn’t one giant stress. Where I could watch something without trying to think of what I need to say about it or dreading each week where I had to come up with new content. I want to go back to the aniblogosphere, read more blogs, and socialize more on twitter. If a new opportunity knocks on my door, I won’t hesitate, but in the meantime I just want to sit back and try to return to those good old days.

Thank you for listening, I hope to talk to you all much more in the coming weeks!
