So yeah this post comes months late but I just wanted to thank every one who has stuck around ever since Impz decided to become the cloistered trap. It has been a year of change for me and my lack of activity has largely been due to starting a new job while foolishly taking on night school. At some point everyone stops being a student and enters the nether realms of working full time for pay. My transition differs from most in that I went from school to military duty then to civilian employment. I went from starving to well paid and fed to half net pay and no more discounted meals.
In the mean time working in sewage means I have the shittiest job out of everyone in the anime blogosphere. If you only knew about the shit that I have to deal with on a daily basis… If nothing else it means that I have some structure in life and now that I am not living on the road and out of hotels I can now attend anime conventions with my college buddies hopefully those hotel and airline points I racked up over the last year will be useful for the convention circuit. Hopefully that means I can contribute more convention posts or just clog up posts with cosplay photos. I just hope by the time I get into the swing of things my lackluster photography skills will be up to par.
I understand now why Impz eventually decided to semi-retire and one day I too will have to make sacrifices for the sake of work. Now that my situation is settled and stable I probably should do all the posts I have wanted to do that I never had the time to. Hopefully talking about obscure things like the real Sengoku Jidai isn’t going to bore people. I’ve been at this for over five years now and I have not even put a dent into the list of things I have meant to do.
Lastly I wanted to thank my dear comrades who are still here, you guys probably do more around here these days than I do. I hope that from now on I will be able to do more than just pay the hosting bill. There is a is a lot for me to learn about the technical side but now that I have the time I will do my best to try and master it. I felt like tossing this out because well I want to put into words what I hope to accomplish and re-affirm my commitment (I also re-enlisted so it just felt right) to this project that was handed to me. I have been a very poor care taker to the legacy but hopefully I can remedy that a bit or at least hand it off to someone else who has the time and the talent.
Not having night school and not having to be antsy about life after the military has been uplifting for the most part. Now comes the challenge of balancing work-life and doing all things I have meant to do before I am overrun by adult responsibilities and massacred by finances.
