Hello, fellow readers!
Can you believe it is July already? I feel like June flew by so fast. Probably because a lot of life changes have been happening. Unfortunately, there will probably be no anime content for at least a week, so you have to slum it with me and my personal life updates.
I am excited about the Summer 2021 releases. There are a handful of shows that I am looking forward to posting opinions about. I am kind of looking for to this season’s sports anime. So, look forward to those snippets of opinions coming in the next week or so. The season goes into full swing on Saturday with a lot of potentially good shows debuting.
THE LIVING ROOM
I am sad to report that we STILL do not have our flooring. I am beginning to really lose my patience with these people. On one hand, I know materials are out of their control. On the other hand, we should have been properly warned that materials are taking a long time to gather. I wouldn’t have gotten rid of our couch so soon. We’re going on a month of walking into a disaster zone every time we come home. And, again. First world problems. At least we have a roof over our heads. I need to get a little perspective here. I recognize that. Until we get the flooring done, the new furniture is going to sit in a warehouse until we can get it delivered and installed since the set is powered.
FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND
As you may know, this weekend, the United States will be celebrating our nation’s declaration of independence from the British. It’s typically a day celebrated with BBQs and fireworks. This year, I suggested we go to a Round Rock Express baseball game and watch their fireworks show. Now, this is important because I very rarely suggest anything where I have to deal with crowds. People irritate me in even the smallest groups, so this is a great step forward for me. I might even cook steaks for lunch. In addition, my husband has agreed to take me to a parade. I have always loved parades. I don’t know why since large groups make me anxious and irritated. We’ll get to see two fireworks shows this weekend because of the timing of the holiday.
BACK TO SCHOOL
In a month and a half, I will be returning to university to complete a bachelor’s degree. This will be my third degree. I’ve been slowly preparing myself for the reality of working full-time and going to school full-time. I’ll be taking all of my classes online, so it shouldn’t be too much of a burden. I’m not sure how I will fit in all of my studying, but my co-worker manages, so I think I will be able to manage, too.
This semester, I am taking an introductory class to liberal studies, arts in contemporary society, protest song in America, and computer impact and technology. I’m majoring in liberal studies with minors in English, fine arts, and business management.
In anticipation of the course load, I procured a Samsung S7+ tablet. I like handwriting notes, but I hate keeping up with paper notebooks. This will solve the problem as I can take notes in the tablet and save them to PDF for use later. I’ve been on the fence about tablets, but I think with this very mobile world, it was a must buy. I also despise laptops. Sorry laptop users. I just don’t like them. The tablet was a small compromise for me.
I am excited, and scared, for this newest chapter in my life. I’ve always wanted to complete my bachelor’s degree. I think for a lot of selfish reasons, but I’m not worried about that. I know having one will make me more marketable than I am now, but at the same time, I just want to be able to say that age doesn’t matter. I got my third, and hopefully, final degree at 44.
Anyhow, that is what’s happening in my world. Anime content should be resuming shortly!
