Inspiration Dwelleth Not Much Here

Holy freakin' poop! If the final cafe scene of "Endless Eight" wasn't sweet enough, the latest episode (The Sighs of Haruhi Suzumiya Part IV) of Haruhi Suzumiya had a scene that was pretty dark, dramatic, and EPIC! I won't go into details just yet, but let's just say that Kyon's reaction was fairly close to my reaction at work today. If you have seen the episode, then you know which scene I'm talking about. Yes, THAT scene. Talk about going from a calm, cool, layed back personality to a fiery, violent one. Too many parallels there.

Nothing would have properly prepped me for work this week. If I were a drinking man, I would be drunk right now. Passed out drunk even. I am not, so I am using other outlets to let off some angsty steam.


I saw a few episodes of the dub of Sgt. Frog. Some of it was genius, the other were fairly uninspired meta-humor, but the feel of the series is pure comedy/parody. I had a blast watchign it, and was nearly out of breath from laughing (yes, I still laugh from time to time) so much. I can't wait to get my DVDs from the mail, and they will be arriving soon, even before the preorder date! Thanks Rightstuf!

In other anime news, I got both Chobits and World of Narue bought since they were both being cleared out since the companies went under. This means I am just a set or two away from packing my shelf full. I need more space.

I also have noticed, outside of Mega Media Monday, that all I talk about on here anymore is either how annoyed/depressed I am, or about anime/manga. Take this as a sign of how sad my life is, because seriously, if I'm not fuming or sad, I'm either at school or watching some anime. This is what has come of my existance. Maybe a girlfriend would change things up. Any takers?

I don't know what it is about school, but I feel a ton more relaxed and I actually enjoy myself there. Perhaps I treat it more as a creative outlet, with programming and data manipulation. Maybe my classmates encourage me to be more carefree and I don't have to worry about work or life. Are my classes more or less a congregation of like-minded people, who want not only to improve their knowledge of programming, but also their work lives as well? After hopefully being done with classes this spring, I am certain I will feel two to three things: happiness, that I am well on my way to leaving work, sad: because I have to leave the comfort of the classroom, and scared, because the real world cometh. I will get a better job and with it, I will have to move away from home and start my new life.

Ok, that's a bit much for now. More on that in the months to come, I'm sure. I know it won't be smooth, but it will most definately be different. Perhaps I can reclaim that euphoric feeling I had a while back, or maybe I will just have to accept myself as I am. I am not ready for that just yet. I want to be happier and more carefree, but that won't be for a long while yet. I just need to persevere longer. "Endure patiently, and you will not wilt."

Anyways, this thinking about not talking about anime/angst is stemming from my lack of audioblogs, since that is all they encompass anymore. I would love to either A) Produce a podcast about geek/nerd related media or B) Find something new worth talking about. I am trying to do letter B, but its not going too smoothly. Maybe I could do a sermon on here! *watches last few readers run away quickly*

Until then, you could consider this blog dead-ish, unless you like anime reviews, in which case WELCOME TO THE ALLENGATOR'S AMAZING ANIME ALCOVE!!!!!!

Sorry, I was playing devil's advocate there. I'm sure I can find something to talk about. Just give me time, please! I'm sure I will come up with something awesome-esque. I think...

Working on Leaving Myspace

This is something I just posted on my Myspace blog. If you aren't on Myspace, you can pretty much ignore it.

"Hey, long time no blog, or much of anything on here.

That is kind of what's prompting this thought. I rarely use my myspace for anything, and most everyone on my list is on another site...fine, Facebook. I can almost import my lj blog on there, as well as my blog features like Mega Media Monday and stuff. You're missing out if this is the only place you look at my stuff.

Anyways, a lot of my friends have shut down on here and I am following suit. If you have a perfectly legit reason I should stay on here, then by all means let me know in the comments. I've found almost everyone currently on my friends list on facebook, and keeping my online profiles to a minimum is something I prefer, not only for security reasons, but for simplicity sake.

So if youre on here, look for a Facebook add soon if I don't have you on there already. I would love to keep in touch with everyone, and I count all of you as good friends.

Thanks, and talk to you soon!
