Considering the silent usurping by my other bloggers in my absence for 3 weeks, it feels THAT is still alive and kicking (49 comments on Macross: are you guys smoking weed on Sheryl and Ranka?). On the other hand of being alive and kicking, I have realized that I totally lost confidence in my ability to write academically for the past year. Well, some good news happened, including the confirmed publication for one of my papers in a SCSI-indexed academic journal, and the renewed enthusiasm that I have lost for academic writing and research.
Perhaps, it is my weak determination or the continued knowledge and remainders that I am not good enough. Whatever it is, biting my own pride is never an easy thing to do. That is why I am pretty sure that it is the exact reason why Zero is constantly in an emo state: he just cannot do anything to help himself other than wanting to bite. Sadomaschobiting, the act of biting to inflict emotional pain, is strangely not erotic in this case. Hickeys, anyone?
You can tell that I am still in a jet lag state of stupidity (28 hours of flight never helped). If there are three things that can make a normal, rational man turn into a total pack of goo, they must be jet lag, love and revenge. Hence, it is apparent that the above image of Zero must be due to one of the factors, or a combination of love and revenge. I wonder why.
I need some time to get back into the groove, so bear with me. No backlog entries on Vampire Knight or Toshokan Sensou because I am just so god damn lazy. Nonetheless, I will blog on Episode 9 when it appears to our online shores. Look forward to it, with increased amounts of insanity. Cheers and it feels good to be back. Oh, we are also back in 9rules too, as noted by Kabitzin.
