2010 was probably the worst year of my life. My first year of college had gone so poorly that I transferred schools, I was dealing with the full brunt of not being straight, and found my anxiety disorder so difficult to manage that I would go days without leaving my bed. It was also the year I discovered a lot of media that was and continues to be extremely important to me. One of them was a summer show that sounded interesting enough that I was willing to buffer a full episode of it on Hulu using phone data.

Because today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic... )

A couple of weeks ago I was listening to a Star Wars podcast I enjoy called "Greedo Shot First" - "A Star Wars podcast for people who hate Star Wars fans" as they often say in the opening. They're fans themselves, but often express frustration at stuff Star Wars fandom as a whole does and says. While I haven't been into Star Wars for very long, I can understand the sentiment. I have been in some really frustrating, wanky fandoms in my time. But on one of the last episodes I listened to, one of the hosts expressed confusion over why people enjoy the animated TV series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" so much.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... )

fh14: (Seiji [Chibisan Date])
I think, especially lately, I can't help but feel let down by holidays because I've built them up so much in my head. Like, there's this idealized image of what "Halloween" should look like and its the thing found in movies like "Hocus Pocus" and "Halloweentown" - only the latter of which I remembered to watch this year.

In this town called Halloween... )
Happy Halloween!

fh14: (Australia [Hetalia])

I meant to update this last night but I fell asleep almost immediately. It's a good thing my LSAT class was a diagnostic I'd already done, because there was no way I was staying awake.

Still haven't watched last week's episode of HTGAWM. I watched the very beginning of it, but I could sense that something bad/embarrassing/cringe-inducing was about to happen so I paused it and I haven't gone back to it. Tonight I'm gonna try to stream it on my Apple TV to see if I can get through it. Same with last week's episode of Bob's Burgers. I finally got caught up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine though, so at least I can hang my hat on that.

As far as blog maintanence goes, I'm pretty happy with the new setup, but I'm not really happy with the old icons I have on here. I like some of them, but others not so much. I'm torn about deleting them though, because it feels like a part of my history I shouldn't erase, but at the same time I've hit my icon storage limit and idk if getting a paid account so I can upload more icons is worth it at this point. I may just sit on what I have currently and wait and see how I feel in a month, and if I continue to use this account like I'm hoping. I do like my blog layout more than the one on my dreamwidth writing account though, which is weird considering I think dreamwidth has a better theme selection overall.

Due to the inactivity in the [livejournal.com profile] hetalia community, I'm contemplating doing some kind of "Weekly News Roundup" post on there. It would also be good way to motivate me to stay on top of the news post on the hetaliaarchives tumblr as well, since I haven't been great about that the past few weeks. That community is still wayyyyy more active than the dreamwidth one though, which makes me feel good about pushing back on that move a couple of years back. Since Friday is Hetalia Day I might take that opportunity to start that.

I have some ideas for future entries that won't be as scattered as this one, including reflections on my time in certain fandoms. But for now I'm just happy I remembered to update this.
