Eight and a half years. It’s been eight and a half years since I first joined as a writer at Random Curiosity. It’s odd to think of it in retrospect, how an email rattled off to Divine at just the right time led to nearly a decade of writing about anime for people all around the world. In that time I’ve watched hundreds of anime and taken thousands of screenshots. I’ve managed RandomC’s day-to-day operations, making sure schedules were decided upon and previews went out on time, more or less. I’ve written editorials, taken part in podcasts, and published over a thousand blog posts, good for Top 5 among authors on this site to date … and when you factor in my legendary wordiness, particularly in those early days, I’ve probably published more words than most.
It’s odd to bring something like that to an end. It’s even more odd to wax nostalgic about what amounts to a decades-long unpaid part-time job. Yet here we are, as I indulge in some hard-earned nostalgia in this, my 1,056th, and final, RandomC post.
