anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

Heeey guys, its been ages. Have been sucked away by RL and Tumblr. And in regards to the latter, thanks to xkit's wonderful extensions that make queuing up reblogs a thousand times easier, I now have a semi-active tumblr, so there's less lurking and some actual posting :D Please add or drop an ask if you've started using it too :D

On the RL front, my parents moved to Vancouver last summer and my dad relocated to Edmonton for his new job in Jan. My mom is joining him next month and I'm moving to a new place (still in BC!)then too. My sister got engaged within 10 weeks of meeting her fiance and the wedding is at the end of April.

Initially I had been stressing about losing some weight for the wedding but finally decided to invest in a corset - gave it a trial run for the annual company party and it was a definite success.

Lately it feels like I didn't actually do much this past year but then I think about the adjustment period stuff with my parents migrating to Canada and oh lord, yeah, no, it was busy.

On the TV front, been following very few titles: Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Sherlock and Community.

Got my parents hooked onto The Good Wife and spent a lot of time last year marathoning episodes with them (bought the whole series off ebay after I realized I'd marathoned the show half a dozen times already). Have yet to watch the latest season though since it's so very crazy and I want to wait for the season to end before binge watching it.

I got a free Galaxy Tab last year and it helped feed into my manga reading (the app Manga Rock is to blame). Manga+ and MangaCloud work better on my smartphone though.

Favorite manga of the year is Haikyuu, a volleyball title with lovely art - there's an anime coming out soon too! I also love the korean webtoon manwha The Gamer :) Oh and Tetsugaku Letra which isn't updated nearly as fast as I would like. Have caught up with Natsume Yuujinchou and am trying to get into Until Death Do Us Part but keep getting distracted.

For shounan ai/yaoi, there is Koi Nante Shinai, Mayonaka No Oyatsu, Koibitogokoro (the full series), Katekyo!, Love Stage and Kureko Kareshi no series. Free! is the swimming anime that was super fun too :D

My reading habits have switched to Sterek mainly, which I use Ao3 to keep up with. Blacktofade wrote me Knot the Average Alpha which I read half a dozen times and is LOVE. My favorite fics of last year can be found listed here on good reads.

Have achieved my goal hair length which is boob level \o/ However the next pics I take will probably be for the wedding lol.

Am trying to get into Welcome to Night Vale but I keep getting distracted while listening to it - have reached episode nine or ten I think?

What's happening with y'all? Any new fandoms or RL stuff or HP stuff of note? As additive as the commentary on tumblr is, it doesn't have the communication of lj - which just feeds into my lurker tendencies, argh.
I am listening to Night Vale, I am on episode 9 or 10 myself. I find it is so short that it is good for listening to in the car for short trips.
It does seem to work better while long as I'm not also reading fic or checking news on my phone >_> In some ways it feels like where before you'd spend time everyday on your PC at home, now the phone has become the PC and you can spend EVERY WAKING MOMENT on it, during commutes or even waiting in line for a soda XD I love It
*huuuug* Rachel! PLEASE TELL ME YOU HAVE A TUMBLR <3 <3 It's srsly not the same as LJ but wanna see my peeps there too :3
SUPER LATE REPLY to say noooo, I do have a tumblr but I don't really use it except to occasionally binge on Hiddles gifs :D I know that there are communities on there, but it doesn't seem the same as LJ, you know? Tell me your tumblr address though and I will see if I can remember how to add people, haha.
I have a tumblr! I'm on a semi-active phase too. Basically I post non stop and then have months where... I don't. This one has been going pretty strong though ^^ communicating and tumblr is for the young. Friendships formed there make me go how?? lol ^^;

I'm liking Sleepy Hollow atm.
It's been ages and ages! Got so many things to say to you but only this:

HI BB! ♥
Hey there, maybe this has already been asked and answered, but what happened to the h/d directory? I was looking for it quite desperately :(
