On this day of Barack Obama’s inauguration (I had to stop myself from titling this post “State of the Union”), here are some notes on myself and the series I’m blogging:

  • I said last month that things should be better for me schedule-wise in this new year, but it hasn’t quite turned out that way. As some of you may know, I’m a grad student right now, and a big project recently came up for review, so I’ve been scrambling for that. That’s the reason Rideback and Soul Eater haven’t been blogged yet, though I did get some time to watch them. I’m probably going to try to continue on normally with writing up Bleach today and Toradora tomorrow and catch up on blogging those two series when I get a chance later this week.
  • Speaking of which, I’ve created a Winter 2009 Schedule page listing all the series I and Trillian will be blogging. You might notice that Tales of the Abyss, Kuroshitsuji, and Michiko to Hachin are not on the list – these series have been dropped. The latter two because Trillian is in the middle of job hunting and doesn’t have the time to cover four series, and Abyss because I had to let go of the show that I was least interested in if I wanted to pick up three new Winter 2009 shows and not kill myself.
  • Concerning Daily Doses, I do hope to restart them at some point and have been contacted by some prospective writers.
  • On a more positive note, I’ve been trying out Twitter as part of a social networking research class I’m taking, and I was surprised at how quickly I was able to create a list of friends just by importing my Gmail contacts. I also found some people I haven’t talked to or seen in a while who are apparently quite active on Twitter. Now I don’t know how much I’ll end up using this or if I’ll integrate it with the blog, but it’s been interesting to play with.

    1. Here’s to hoping life works out for you.

      I’d love to help out, but I’m never commited to what I do and I’ll end up doing like 3 blog posts then later beat myself up with guilt.

      Good luck to the two of you.

    2. school suck’s ass! soo effing boring,cept for da shortys. YET, its mandatory most da time, that is if u have any ambitions to put some real GWOP in ur palms. i’m not worried for u in the slightest. cuz since u can juggle a blog of this magnitude,work.and social life Grad school ain’t shit. do what u need. btw- if u gotta cut back on da blogs..cool. but the daily dose should be kept strong. for a dude like me that only peeps one anime blog site,i find it super informative

    3. Yah man school comes first. You can always go back and catch up to the series later, and blog about how you marathoned it.
      Good luck with the season and glad you’ll continue blogging To Aru Majustsu no Index and Toradora!.
      Keep up the good work.

    4. Hmm… that’s bring me back to the time you announce to drop this site couple years ago.
      Man… I still surprise till these days that you can keep this site up through.
      Life come first man, and take it with fun just like what you did for all of us here!

      PS. Sorry for a really crap ‘english’ here.

    5. Have you ever thought of just like “taking a break”
      We all have lives and you shouldn’t feel like you HAVE to blog anything (i’m surprised you aren’t sick of doing constant summaries yet :P)

      Added you on twitter as well

    6. Well I’ve been with this website for a long time but this is my first comment. It sucks that Michiko to Hatchin had to be dropped. Toradora and Michiko to Hatchin are two of the best animes airing right now.
