Well, today’s my last day in the States. I couldn’t manage to get out anywhere near all the things I had in mind for this humble little blog of my mine—which makes me pretty disappointed in myself. If I’m being honest, I feel like the blame falls upon 10% actual busyness, 90% procrastination. It’s been hard to keep my mind straight, especially in this last week as I’ve been spending time with and saying goodbye to so many people. One of my problems is that I treat social gatherings like another job to be scheduled, and I never turn down work. I suppose I need to get better at my time management and only work on the social links that really matter (Persona reference, for those confused).
Now that I’m going to be in Japan, supplied with brand new equipment, I’m excited by the things I’ll be able to create, and all the potential Japan has for the ideas I have in store. Your Name on TV will exist, and it will be my first priority once I settle in. After that, we’ll see where my crazy mind takes me. All I can say for now is that I definitely want to put my film school experience to use, and hopefully find people that will help me with that. I also want to eat a shit ton of ramen.
Sorry I couldn’t be quite so prolific in my brief return to blogging, but I’m going to continue writing about anime for a long time to come…there just might be some long times to wait between my posts. Writing has been a very important hobby for me, something that I wholeheartedly feel good about doing—unlike a bunch of useless acts of instant self-gratification that I’ve been indulging in lately (mainly worthless video games). Games are fun, but I certainly have a hard time limiting myself, which is why I won’t be bring my PlayStation 4 along with me (although I do have my Vita and Switch for the plane ride).
This next 5 months I’m going to be taking a break from a lot of things, and I’ll see how things go. I will most likely be updating this blog with my adventures, so I hope you stay tuned for that, as well as the usual randomly timed posts about anime (one day I’ll learn to stick to a schedule). Truth be told, I still can’t believe this is happening. I’m going to be IN JAPAN. TOMMORROW. Well, technically Tuesday because of the time zone leap and flight length. Still. Holy shit.
As a writer, I hate to say that I’m at a loss for words because it is literally my life’s goal to never let that happen—to always be able to describe to the best of my ability what’s in my head and in my heart. All I have right now are silly dreams and naïve wishes for what the next 5 months will be. But fuck it! I’m gonna work hard. I am going to turn all my dumb anime dreams into reality, or at the very least keep trying until it kills me.
Anyway, to close this I just wanted to do what I always do and thank you for reading. It’s still astonishing to me that people managed to find what I write, and even crazier that they continue to read. I hope you enjoy what comes next. I have a feeling I will as well.
