“I am rapidly racing toward old age and death.” — Nominated for the “One Lovely Blogger” Award

One Lovely Blogger Award

I’m finally completing this nomination without it dissolving into a diary-esque ramble! This “One Lovely Blog Award” has come to me from Keiko! I have been instructed to list seven things about myself, but need they be things you don’t already know? I suppose that would be the most interesting for all of you. I mean, I can only mention so much about how I love Hakuouki.

1. I once made a PowerPoint on Hakuouki because I love it and Scott jokingly said that I should.

Sorry.

I had to start with Hakouki (which my spell check keeps wanting me to type as Habakkuk—you know, like the book of the Bible—), but this will be my only mention, promise!

Anyway, I love it too much, and Scott has far too much persuasive power. No, I’m kidding. I just had too much time on my hands.

Realistically speaking, I need to rewrite my previous Hakuouki review from a more distanced perspective so I can adequately analyze its flaws. I’ve re-seen it enough (and over a long enough period) that I’ve cast aside the rose tinted glasses and stayed a fangirl because it is truly exceptional while being able to accept that it isn’t perfect. I should get on that review redux.

2. The thought of having children in the next few years is simultaneously appealing but also terrifying.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO NAP IF I HAVE A CHILDREN!? I CANNOT DO SO MANY THINGS WITH A CHILDREN! I AM TOO YOUNG FOR A CHILDREN! BUT I AM ALSO RAPIDLY SPRINTING TOWARD OLD AGE AND DEATHHHH~~~~!! *theatrically dies*

3. I write a lot of poetry.

I’m planning to publish a book of it at some point within the next year or so. So, you know, be looking for that? Or probably not because I’ll be using my real name? Or maybe I won’t because DeCiSiOnS?

4. I dislike and avoid anime with excessive gore/violence, excessive or inappropriate fan service, incest, sexually explicit content, and mecha. ;P

Different strokes for different folks.

(And yes, I did start watching Tokyo Ghoul, but that’s the exception rather than the rule for me.)

But I do really like Paint and Peter Hollens. 🙂

5. I’m trying to get a blog avatar made.

So, you know, send the artists my way, readers?

6. Ferris wheels are terrifying, okay?

When I was but a young, impressionable lass, my dear father (who is truly a wonderful man, I feel the need to clarify) took me on my first Ferris wheel. T’was but a small thing, a one-day-set-up-tear-down type of carnival ride at a local homecoming event, but it was my first none the less, and I remember it… fondly?

This man thought it would be fun to rock the car, you see, until his…5?…-year-old daughter screamed and cried, and then continue to rock it and laugh (I have no idea what was going on in this man’s mind, tbh) as I wailed in true and blatant fear that we were going to fall out and die.

And this was years ago, mind you, but to this day the rocking of a Ferris wheel car is enough to set me on edge.

Let me be clear that this show of disregard for my feelings was and is entirely out of character for my dad, so I can only assume that he thought I was not as upset as I was, perhaps that I was playing around, too. But no, I was serious.

I hardly remember the details of this event, but it impacted me, so there we are.

7.  I sing things sometimes.

This seems pretty self-explanatory.

I do this in church. I do it in the shower. I do it at work. One time I did it as Belle in a musical. And I do it on YouTube if I’m feeling brave.

Once I posted a YouTube video of a song that I recorded in Audacity when I was practicing for an an Easter service. (It’s great for hearing yourself in playback, you know?) It wasn’t perfect (and it was my first time singing all the way through), but hey, I was brave and put it out there and there we go. I also put out a creepy teaser for a Mystic Messenger cover song that I planned to record for Halloween, but then I got more sick and I haven’t been able to sing in forever so…

…hopefully the doctor fixes me! But he wants to take a chest x-ray, so oh nose!!! :/
