Currently: On My Day-Off


anime, anime girl, and art image

Currently listening: a lot of new pop songs, just for the taste of them! 

Currently sitting: in the loveseat in the living room, laptop on my lap. XD

Currently liking: my one day off for the week tonight. I got some shopping done, cashed in a lottery ticket, skyped with my boyfriend to play Path of Exile, and grilled burgers for dinner.A nice day!

Currently drinking: Powerade is my latest drink of choice, strawberry lemonade or citrus passionfruit.

Currently reading: I’m in the middle of several stories rn, and it’s hard to find time to get to them. But, I’m about 87 chapters into I Am A Hero, a zombie manga, and about two pages into the first Game of Thrones book. I’m also reading Bone Gap.

Currently writing: alternate endings to one of my old novels. I don’t know why, it just keeps happening. XD

Currently watching: at this exact moment, The Great British Baking Show. Other things I’m currently watching include final episodes of the current season’s anime shows. And I literally just finished watching Breaking Bad.

Currently obsessed with: “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay. I’ve not heard much by either of these groups, but I do adore this song!!

Currently tired: from my last six full days of work. I’ve been resting today on my one day off today; but I’m tired quite a lot lately. Besides that, my body clock is off since I work mostly night shifts; I’m not out of bed till about ten in the morning, but I don’t head to bed till about two or three in the morning too.

Currently excited: that I get to work with my favorite people tomorrow night! Eileen has basically adopted me as her second daughter and I love working with her. And even on busy hectic nights like Saturday, when I work with Trent and Matt, I know I’ll be laughing and talking about the silliest funnest things!

Currently failing: at getting my bedroom floor picked up. I keep saying I will…but it still hasn’t happened yet. >__>

Currently scaring myself with: the thought of using most of my money I’ve saved and sinking it into a car…and then having the new expenses of insurance, ect. I need to get a vehicle soon though.

Currently stuck in my head: well, see that song up there? It’s really stuck. XD

Currently wishing: that I get a better work schedule next week, with all my friends and homies. XD I love my work family so much!

Currently praying: for family and friends alike, for varying reasons too private to share. But, you know. ❤

Currently: Baking in the Kitchen


Libelle illustration:

Currently listening: to the One Outs original soundtrack. Stupidly fun to listen, so funky and cheeky. ❤

Currently sitting: at the kitchen table facing into the living room, and moving back and forth with the oven baking chocolate chip banana muffins.

Currently liking: the Grammarly extension for Google Chrome! It’s so much better than the WordPress proofreader–ugh.

Currently drinking: lots of water, still. It’s freaking hot out there and it’s refusing to rain in my neighborhood, so I’m continuing to suffer. Gotta stay hydrated! XD

Currently writing: more often my second blog, Jamie Talks Anime. It feels good to be back! I gave it a new layout too, and for some reason, that’s really brought back my motivation to write again! Feels awesome!

Currently watching: Frasier, on the living room TV:”Ham Radio”, one of my favorite episodes!

Currently obsessed: with my newest third blog, My Soulmate: Music. If you remember in an earlier post I mentioned I wanted to find more ways to better express myself this year? This spontaneously became one of them! I’m posting a favorite song almost every day AND I LOVE IT.

Currently tired: of politics. Enough. Said.

Currently excited: for my birthday this Sunday! I actually hadn’t thought about it very much this year, but my family and loved ones have been getting excited about it and now I’m excited too!

Currently scaring myself: with finding a job and practicing driving. I’m doing both at the moment. I really hope I have a job by the end of August, I’ll really need it by then. Thankfully, the driving part has been easier than expected. Left turns aren’t that bad, I just learned a trick for parking, and I successfully drove on 7 lane roads for the first time the other day! It will be very interesting when I’m comfortable enough to buy a car and can go where I like. @_@ XD

Currently stuck in my head: so many songs.

Currently wishing: for rain, rain, lots of rain! I WANT IT SO BADLY.

Currently praying: that I continue to be safe while driving, that I find myself the right job, and that the right vehicle will be made available at the right time and place and price.

Currently: On the Verge of Summer Vacation


8320e2ea45cb42f77af171287f019fe3

Currently listening: If There’s Time by Odesza. Slightly obsessed with this song because it starts so chill… and then suddenly it just grows into more. ❤

Currently sitting: on my computer chair at my desk, with an open suitcase behind me on my bed and lists of things to do in front of me on the desk. XD

Currently liking: that I’m about to go on the first real vacation, tomorrow, since maybe early 2013???? I don’t know, but it’s long overdue, and I’ve really wanted one after the parents divorcing/lots of stress stuff LOL. But the best part is that I get to go spend this one meeting and staying with my best friend! THE HYPE IS REAL. So yeah. Really liking that!

Currently drinking: I’m at the tail end of a cold, so, water. So much water. Gallons of water. An ocean’s worth. ok that’s exaggerating; but yeah, water. XD

Currently reading: I’m still reading A Gathering of Shadows. Been reading it on and off while waiting for my bus rides to and from school. Loving it though, and about to really chomp into it tomorrow during the long plane ride!

Currently writing: I’m actually about to start a new story! A mystery adventure novella set on an island, following a down-on-her-luck writer and a documentary team secretly investigating… something. I don’t know what. I will find out with my characters though. But horses on the beach and camera crews and lonely highways in forgotten forests and crime families and espionage should all be included.XD

Currently watching: Breaking Bad still; at the beginning of season four. NO SPOILERS PLEASE. XD Am slowly making my way through this classic. I was madly watching it for the first two seasons; but then season three went an odd direction so I slowed down (and then there was an episode that triggered me and I couldn’t watch it for like a month.) But it’s still a great show and I’m trying to savor it so it’s not over too fast.

Currently obsessed with: Odesza, actually! I discovered them from a long youtube mix and I just fell in love with the electronica vibe. JUST, THANK YOU GOD FOR SO MUCH DIVERSE AMAZING MUSIC TO LISTEN TO. #Music:ForeverMySoulMate

Currently tired: of coughing. XD it’s clinging to the back of my throat with an annoying tickle and then every time I go to giggle, I cough instead. >__> Like, could you not, I’m trying to feel joy. 😉

Currently excited: THAT I’M TAKING A PLANE BY MYSELF TO GO SEE MY VERY BEST FRIEND FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER. I’M SO HYPED. AJSKDLFJAKSLJFKALSJDFKASLDJKFALSJKFDJALSDFJLASJFLASJD.

Currently failing: actually, can I please take a moment to say that this semester I DID NOT FAIL BUT ACTUALLY GOT AN “A” IN MATH!?!?!?!?! LIKE WHOOP WHOOP FOR ME.

Currently scaring myself with: flying… ok, I am a teeny bit nervous about getting through airport security and stepping on a plane, but I think that’s pretty normal. Last time I flew, I actually quite enjoyed the adrenaline rush it carried, so I’m looking forward to that again! Flying, when you don’t think of crashing, is really the best fun. XD

Currently stuck in my head: I actually had a Kpop song stuck in my head earlier but I don’t remember the name at the moment. Oh well.

Currently wishing: to have the best next week and half ever in Georgia! ❤

Currently praying: that I have two safe flights leaving and coming home and that my vacation will be smooth for everyone involved. ❤ I’m so so hyped, you guys! Pray for me tomorrow morning, I’ll be in the air!

Currently: (while watching a ocean adventure)


这睡相,萌屎咯。【阿团丸子】:
Happy Easter, everybody, btw. 🙂

Currently listening: to the film “Ponyo” run in the background with the family watching. Oh, and pirate music all last week. XD I’m building myself a pirate instrumental YouTube playlist! I’ll be fully prepared the day I start a pirate novel. XD

Currently sitting: in the living room at a card table. Just chillin’, stuffed from Easter lunch. XD

Currently liking: THE COOL WEATHER. It’s lasted all week but it will probably become unbearably hot soon. But that sounds about right; a week of spring in AZ. XD

Currently drinking: homemade lemonade with crushed fresh strawberries and blueberries! I HAVE BEEN DRINKING LEMONADE WRONG MY WHOLE LIFE. XD

Currently reading: my Arizona Driver License Manual. Gotta do this sometime.

Currently writing: *cricket noises*

Currently watching: BREAKING BAD. I’m at the beginning of season 2. It’s some good TV, you guys. Jesse is my fave, he’s an adorable punk who shouldn’t be allowed to be so lovable. ❤ ❤ I’m also watching a lot of Cutthroat Kitchen with the family lately, too. But all my winter anime shows are ENDING. The spring selection looks great though, so I can’t wait for them to begin. Especially the newest season of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: I caught up with the last three seasons in about two months flat to watch it simulcast. XD

Currently obsessed with: anime soundtracks; OSTs from the previous Fall season like ONE PUNCH MAN, which is full of rad guitar riffs and hype, and Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon which I’VE BEEN WAITING DESPERATELY FOR, ARE OUT. So, yep, totally obsessed with the new wave of anime soundtracks out on Youtube!

Currently excited: about my school semester being close to over. Need I say more. XD

Currently failing: ^^ did you hear the crickets up there. That’s where I’m failing. @_@ = face of exasperation with myself.

Currently tired: of getting bruised up. I was in a minor car collision on my bike a few weeks ago, which left my knees decently bruised up and just now starting to more normal again. So that sucked. Then I managed to badly bruise the outside of my left thigh this past week too. How I did that remains a mystery.

Currently scaring myself with: crossing big intersections on my bike again. I’m mean, I’m not too terrified, I’ve done it a few times since the accident already, but that was scary as f***, you guys. 😯 I had the light and everything when the car suddenly creeped forward, knocking me off-balance to the street. I for real thought it was going to keep creeping right over me and my bike for the four seconds that it lasted. It shook me up bad but I got myself home and everything afterwards without freaking out in public. Thankfully my injuries were minor, being only my bruised knees, and the bike’s damage was an easily fixed gear problem. But still: WAKE UP, DRIVERS. PEOPLE USE THE CROSSWALKS YOU KNOW.

Currently stuck in my head: the chorus from Sia’s song Broken Glass. 😀

Currently wishing: that the library would hurry up in finding A Gathering Of Shadows for me so I can start reading it ASAP! I’VE BEEN WAITING.

Currently praying: that my upcoming math test goes smoothly and I remember everything I’ve studied. *fingers crossed*

And Happy Easter everybody! How was your holiday? What are you currently up to?

My Online Highlights || Round 3

What I’ve Been Watching:

  • Frasier Season 10 (nearly done with the entire show! My heart!)
  • Interstellar (um. I shall reserve my thoughts for a short review)
  • Princess Jellyfish (BECAUSE I HAVE THE DVDS!)
  • My Love Story!! (hands down best rom-com I’ve ever seen in my liiife)
  • The Office on Netflix (forever and always)
  • Blood Blockade Battlefront (stunning quirky sci-fi urban fantasy is stunning–see gallery below!)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Out of all the seasonal anime airing right now, the best is definitely My Love Story!! and Blood Blockade Battlefront. I can easily recommend those to you guys because My Love Story!! is hysterical and terribly adorable and Blockade is quirky and way too much fun. XD

YouTube

I’ve followed The Fine Brothers react videos for several years now; they’re the YouTubers I keep up with most. At the beginning of the month I caught up with one of their gaming series while I wasn’t feeling well. I was missing The Walking Dead. 😦 and was needing some sort of zombie filler. XD This is Part 1 of the series, which is still ongoing.

I’ve also been running my playlist of anime openings and endings A LOT this month. I’m still stuck on the Free! ending but there are a ton of others that bring me good memories of some wonderful shows. Peruse at your own geek risk (and it was this or Kpop, so I will take no complaints. XD )

Writing Updates

Writing of “100 Levels” has come to a full halt the past two weeks as I studied for my GED science test–which I just learned today that I passed! I kept my writing habits alive by writing anime reviews and two large articles here about the internet and emotional health. I hope to put fictional writing as a higher priority in the upcoming month! Hopefully in next post I’ll have a new word count to tell you guys!


Right now, I’m looking forward to May for several reasons:

Age of Ultron for one… although my excitement for it has simmered down to a near “indifferent”… I think I’m trying to protect my feelings since I won’t get to see the film till mid-May after everyone else. I will have to spend that entire time avoiding my normal Tumblr and certain blog posts ’cause of spoilers. Gr.

The big thing for May is my state’s big summer Comic-Con will be happening at the end of this month. I bought my ticket back in February and I’m excited that it’s oh-so-close to arriving! I hope that I’ll maybe see some friends and I’ll probably do all my birthday spending prematurely while I’m there. XD

I hope you all had a nice April!
