A simple notice board on the little life of Impz~

be6267a0b445dc72b2bb7415050.jpg

I generally do not talk about my personal life in this anime blog but this has some repercussions for the blog, which is why I am mentioning it here. This is just a update for all who are somewhat concerned for the future of the blog. I did mention before about my Master’s application to my university, which is something that I have been quietly looking forward to, as I really hope to get a research scholarship from the school. Just today, I have finally received confirmation that I will be accepted and be teaching soon in my university. I am definitely happy that I have found a job, and one that I really enjoy even if it will eat up quite a bit of my time. The pay is nothing great, and the workload might be a lot. However, it’s always good to work for something you enjoy, no? If anything, having a secured future for at least two years really makes me happy, and I am very glad that I can find a job two months before I officially graduated.

What does this mean for T.H.A.T Anime Blog?

For the immediate period, I am doing some part time research-based work and working on some other personal stuff during this summer holiday. This part-time work has been killing most of my time that I have to spend with my recreational time. As the recreational time is mostly spent on communicating with my buddies and my girlfriend, there is a high likelihood that the constant updates from me might not be that frequent anymore.

When my teaching in the university starts in August, I can only say for sure that T.H.A.T Anime Blog is here to stay at least for quite a while. It will not be shut down, since we do have a decent staple of writers other than me (you do know that, right?). We will be still here, giving you some quality posts, and some lesser-quality posts (that occurs quite often when I have some warped thoughts). So, that is about all for Impz’s life updates!

    There should be no problem, as your fellow writers can pick up the slack. :3

    Hey, good luck with your Masters and teaching… and don’t seduce too many boys with your trap looks :p

    What percentage of the posts are yours? I figure you guys have lots of writers that could pick up the slack…

    Erm, considering much of the “work” here is outsourced… I think you’ll have no problems.

    I’d give a lengthy dispensation congratulating you. However it seems that I have much work to do. I surmise that this blog will be a ship without a captain, this is most unsettling.

    Have fun at your job, and good hunting. Lastly congratulations master, Angband is in good hands…

    A job to go with getting an M.A., I’m envious! Good luck!

  18. Posted May 12, 2007 at 8:36 am | Permalink

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! ^-^

    Omedetou! It’s great that you were able to grab that oppotunity not to only do the job that you enjoy, but have your M.A. as well! God bless!

    you certainly have an army of writers, so I’m sure this great blog will remain strong ;)

    Congratulations Impz! I always knew you could do it =D

    Looks like I’ll have to pick up the pace a bit… if only I’m not collapsing under the weight of my own uni work.

    Thanks all! I have been on happy adrenalin for the past few days and being totally unable to do any work due to this. Sigh. Well, to answer a few questions posed by people.

    1. Close to 70% of the posts are written by me in this blog.

    2. I do have an army of writers, but they are a very lazy bunch of writers other than Crusader-san.

    3. Getting to teach a class in my university is really an amazing thing, even though it will be likely to be restricted to tutorials. Nevertheless, I will not be revealing what university I am in, not on the blog at least. It will be funny if one of my viewers turn out to be my future students in Singapore. Ho ho ho. ^_^ and I hear a comment like “Hey Impz, got this stupid lecturer in my school that sucks. He’s a master’s student”

    O_O

    Congrats and good luck! So lucky ^.^

    Btw, how is Singapore in terms of internship/job opportunities for foreigners?

  24. Posted May 14, 2007 at 5:58 am | Permalink

    Frankly speaking, Impz, I just envy you so much. Being a blog writer as well, I just cannot keep a balance between my study in college and my interest toward anime…..I am working hard for my further education going to America or Canada, so I just could not share some time to writting Anime review or commentary in English…..(So hard for a chinese)

    Anyhow, just congratulation for your hard work, and hope you could still doing your terrific job on the THAT anime! You bet!

  25. Posted May 14, 2007 at 6:41 am | Permalink

    @Mars: Oh, there is perhaps quite good, if you ask me. I know that some companies here are often keen to get foreigners, as long as they have a talent to contribute. Of course, there is a huge debate on the foreign talent and whether they should be taking a decent amount of job opportunities. Yes, the nationalistic vs overseas talent question that pops out for many nations. Hence, I believe it is very good, if you are keen. It’s safe here too.

    Wait, this is not Singapore Tourism Board right? :P

    @Pony Mark: Hah, I think I am one of the very few people who can keep a balance, but I am much of a slacker compared to most people. It’s sad but I find it extremely hard to motivate myself compared to most people, and like you, I am working hard for my further education going to America.

    Being Chinese is not that bad. In fact, I know a lot of China scholars and China students who are way better than me in almost everything. It kinda makes me think how good they are …too good in fact.

    Thank you too, and I hope to improve the blog as much as I can. :)

    Naniiiiiiiii??? Oh dear! This my number one anime blog! Never close it! Onegaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiii … :’(…….

  27. Posted May 14, 2007 at 11:15 am | Permalink

    Oh, And Congrats on your job!!! Nice going.

  28. Posted May 14, 2007 at 11:57 pm | Permalink

    It’s not going to be closed. There are still the others. Of course, in the end, we worry about Trappy-sensei. Ha ha ha!

    Oh! Omedetou ne. Didn’t want to forget that.
