Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail: 2016 Blog Plans and Schemes

typing

So I always have trouble writing outlines, now this a problem I’ve had since elementary school. Usually I just free write, without any prior planning, in a lot of ways that’s kind of how this blog is, I just write. So I decided to change things up a bit. First I want to explain a little about the types of posts I currently have on the blog.

Housekeeping…In the Here and Now

Reviews-There are three types of reviews that I write, for now all reviews will be located under the “Games” section on the top menu…

Even Laptops Need Vacations

So as you can probably tell from the title, my laptop is out of commission for awhile….The poor dear has a bit of a fever, so it will be in the shop for an as of yet undetermined amount of time.


…which sucks because I was in the middle of writing two reviews, but it’s okay I’ll survive. I still have my IPad, but writing on that takes twice as long, so I only use it for emergencies and games….so, with that being said, I’ll use this opportuninity and the fact that I recently quit my job to catch up on my backlog of games!


So if I seem a little quiet, it’s because my laptop is taking a little R&R.

Year End Wrap-Up: Starting 2016 in New Bark Town

I smell adventure on the horizon…

So with 2016 less than a day away and the start of my final semester looming on the horizon, I thought it was the right time for a year end wrap-up….

First, I wanna say thank you! This is my first year blogging and I am super grateful to everyone for embracing me with open arms. I’m not so great with this sort of thing, my writing tends to be rather direct and to the point, but I want to say THANK YOU for reading my awkwardly random ramblings about otome and Pokemon, and whatever else popped into my noodle this year… I’ve said this before, but none of my friends care about otome/otoge, so it’s super special awesome to have found a community of otoge fans through my blog. You guys have really made me feel welcome! I have had a lot of fun learning, talking, blogging and reading this year.

thank you

THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!

So enough of that mushy stuff, lol…This is the final step of my masters program, so next year is going to be full of new beginnings! So for me 2016 will be my New Bark Town stage. For those of you who don’t follow Pokemon or just don’t remember Johto, here’s a refresher:

New Bark Town is the hometown of the protagonist in the second and fourth generation Pokemon games (that’s Gold, Silver, Crystal, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver). It’s where I started my Pokemon Journey so many years ago and it remains a place of anticipation and excitement for me even as an adult.

The Town Where Winds of a New Beginning Blow

I am ready for whatever is coming in 2016, to be honest I don’t anticipate the New Year to be perfect, that’s why I keep a my Potions and Revives handy. But, I am ready to give it my best shot, even if I sometimes make things worse, I’ll keep pushing ahead, ‘cus, that’s what heroes do…So here’s to breaking it in 2016, and every year to come…Sometimes you have to break it to make it…

So About Blogging…

I still have a lot of games and things in my backlog, so expect more Rants, Reviews, and, Ramblings in the future! (Maybe I’ll buy a PSP Vita when I get home, so I can finally play Code: Realize!?) Blogging has been so much fun and I can’t wait to keep it up in 2016!

See ya’ll in 2016!!!

Happy Holidays!!

Like the big kid that I am, I am at home in Georgia for the holidays…I love coming home! I have three younger brothers and I miss the noise and craziness of home when I’m away. So every year I come home around this time of year to recapture some of that craziness….and for the delicious food my Mom makes!

So far I have played Super Smash Bros. and Pokemon with my brothers (I hate to admit that they are way better than me). We took a trip to McDonald’s the other day to get the Hoopa event pokemon too… I love seeing them and I will miss them dearly when I have to go back to school….

So what do the holidays mean to me?

Family! No matter how big I get, I will always find time to come home and see my family. It’s important now more than ever, since two out of my three bros are going to be attending college in the Fall, and the youngest is on his way out too…might as well pin them down while I can!

So to everyone out there I hope your holiday season is full of family, food, and GAMES!
