Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jun. 11th to Jun. 17th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Week one of being a working adult has left me exhausted, but I’m enjoying the work so far and I’m getting the hang of things…finally.  Though I’m still not sold on this 6AM wake up time every day, I’ve been conking out the minute I get home everyday…

sleep haikyuu.gif

But, plus side is that I get weekends off, so there must be something to this adulting thing after all. Saw that movie, 47 Meters Down, and it was hilarious, one of those films that are so bad, they’re actually kind of good… maybe if you squint. Oh, and I read one of the most beautiful fanfics the other day, it was just so perfect!!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jun. 4th to Jun. 10th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! After months of job hunting and short term temp jobs, I finally, FINALLY got a long term assignment! I also have two interviews next week for full time positions in my field of study, but I am just relieved to be working again… though getting up early in the morning is going to take some getting used to, but I’m excited nonetheless!

yay haikyuu.gif

The winner of the Super Special Awesome Giveaway was selected, so congratulations to Weekend Otaku!! Don’t worry if you didn’t win a doll this time, there will be opportunities to get a doll soon… I’m working on setting some things up, so be on the look out for that in the coming weeks.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- May 14th to May 20th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Some of you may have noticed that I’ve stopped writing all of my weekly post series (save this one). Don’t worry, they aren’t cancelled, just on hold until June like everything else. I’m currently working on bringing everything up to snuff and for that I need a bit of time and with all the real life stuff I have going on right now, I need to prep a bit.

cooking.gif

I will still upload game reviews during this time, but, that will be about it. If everything goes as planned, I should have everything back and running starting June 1st. In the meantime, I am always open to chatting with more bloggers and writers, so definitely hit me up and say hi, a list of where to find me online is, HERE! Also, if you want to exchange Blogroll links, just let me know and I’d be more than happy to add you, however, you kind of sorta have to write about Japanese culture and media (anime, manga, otome games, etc), but I will make an exception for K-dramas a K-pop stuff!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- May. 7th to May 13th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but being an adult sucks… I can’t imagine why I ever wanted to hurry up and grow up, because I had it easy as a kid….

grow up

*claps hands* I’m still dealing with a lot of real life…stuff, so aside from a few otome game updates, this blog has been kind of dead. I want to say that next week won’t be the same, but… I’m not one to make promises I know I can’t keep, so I’ll try to post a bit, but I’ll plan to be back full steam ahead starting in June.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr. 30th to May. 6th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Life has been throwing a lot of punches my way, but I’m hanging in there. It’s like the moment I handle one problem another one pops up to take it’s place… sigh, adulthood sucks!

hang on.gif

Ah, remember when I mentioned that I was a writer for a new Japanese entertainment site, MANGA.TOKYO, well one of my articles finally went live this weekend! It’s a review of the BL manga Ten Count, I worked really hard on it so definitely check it out when you have the chance, by clicking, HEREI also have a phone interview for a job on Monday, so I hope that goes well…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr. 23rd to Apr. 29th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Sorry I’m a bit late with this week’s recap, the OWLS Monthly Livestream was last night and when Kat, Lita, and I get together we always end up talking for hours (four hours this time, a new record). So, I opted to sleep in, on top of that Period Cube was released a few days ago and I have been swooning over a certain adorkable megane… *ahem* I’ve been otherwise engaged LOL

This has been a good year for otome games and I expect that there will be more releases in the coming weeks and months, so be warned I may go ghost during major game releases. I’m also working on a fun theme for May, so be on the look out throughout the month!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Mar. 19th to Mar. 25th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I am so ready for March to be over, because this month sucked, I guess what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger… but, is it too much to ask for a week where everything just runs smoothly?
chaos.gif
There were some positive things that happened this week… Like I finally figured out how to crochet granny squares (joining them is the hard part) and I got to hang out with a friend from school (she helped me fix up my resume and cover letter). So all in all, this wasn’t such a terrible week…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Feb. 12th to Feb. 18th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Sorry this post is so late, but I’m still at Katsucon, an annual anime convention here in the DMV area… I’ve been having so much fun going to panels and snapping photos of cosplayers!!

20170216_185438

Well, today is the last day of the con and while I may have spent more money than I originally intended, I had a blast!! I met some cool people, saw some amazing cosplays, and sat in on some great panels! Oh, yeah side note… I created an Instagram account, I’m a complete noob when it comes to social media sites, so I have no idea what to do with it really. I’ve been posting con pics on it all weekend, so if you’re curious definitely follow me, I’m poke_ninja90!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Feb. 5th to Feb. 11th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I apologize for being late with this post, but I was reading this amazing Kuroo x Tsukki fanfic, and I was riding the emotional highs and lows… Just wow! I watched my ship crash and burn and then… miraculously rise from the ashes, like a phoenix!! Ya’ll there are literally tears of joy in my eyes right now…

emotions

I’m still trying to recover from emotional roller coaster and there’s still one chapter left until it’s finished, but at least for the time being, my ship is safe! After I finish this post, I’m going to sink right back into KuroTsuki Hell… so, please… don’t try to rescue me…

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, next weekend I will be going to Katsucon (2/17-2/19), so aside from a crap ton of tweets, I’ll be rather hard to pin down until next Monday (2/20). The Con shouldn’t effect the blog too much since I’ll be writing most of my posts before I go, just expect replies to comments to be even slower than usual!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap-Jan. 29th to Feb. 4th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! It’s February, and things have finally settled down… for the most part. The project I’m working on at my job is pretty low maintenance and I’ve finally started making some headway on my game playthroughs!!

mission-accomplished

Instead of doing actual work during my free time, I’ve been watching Bronies React videos on YouTube…and they are frickin’ awesome!! Oh, I went to see Sailor Moon R: The Movie last weekend and it was so much fun! They gave us these really cool cards with the Sailor Scouts on them. I dunno, there’s just something cool about seeing anime films on the big screen that makes the whole experience 10x more enjoyable!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jan. 22nd to Jan. 28th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I cant for the life of me remember everything that happened this week, which I guess is a good thing… Oh, yeah, I was put onto a new project at work so I’m still getting used to that, but other than that its been pretty chill.

no-clue-but-right

Huh, this is so weird, I’m seriously drawing a blank… this week just kind of breezed by… Ah, well, onward and upward!! 😛

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jan. 15th to Jan. 21st

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I’ve had not one, but two 3-Day weekends within the span of two weeks and you’d think I’d use the extra free time to get some actual work done, but you’d be mistaken! I actually spent the extra days off from work reading Haikyuu DJs and slacking off like a pro! 😛

snorelax

Plus the Inauguration had me about ready to pull my hair out, so this wasn’t the most productive week for me…  In fact, I literally waited until the end of the week to start getting things done. Also, sorry in advance, I’ll be catching up on my comments this week, so some of you all might be getting a ton of WP notifications… just a heads up! 😀

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Dec. 4th to Dec. 10th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! After two weeks off of work, I finally went back to the office… only to catch a cold. So, I wound up back home in bed. I’m feeling much better now, just a few achy muscles and the ghost of a cough, so I should be good as new by Monday. But, being sick kind of put me behind with my blogging stuff…

sick

But on a more positive note, I had the pleasure of participating in a super special awesome, livestream with fellow Bloggers Lita Kino and Katrina Sade!! It was my first ever livestream and I had a blast ya’ll!! It was so much fun chatting with these amazing ladies and I would absolutely love to do it again *wink wink* In case you missed all of the fun here is a link to the video!!

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I am well aware of how late this week’s post is, Pokemon has kind of taken over my life… I have been playing nonstop since the release on Friday….

steven-games

I managed to get the whole week off, which means even more time to play my copy of Pokemon Moon!! I’m also suposed to be cooking Turkey Day dinner this year, for the first time in my life and I am just a little overwhelmed… Does anyone know how long I should cook a 10 lb turkey?

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Nov. 6th to Nov. 12th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So this has been an interesting week to say the least. For the most part I have been slacking off as much as humanly possible (work assignments aside)…

hard-work-sucks

I wish I could say that I at least got some gaming done this week, but I didn’t really do much of that… On the plus side, I did get a lot of Netflix binging done… silver linings. Oh and I might be working on a new project at work in the near future!!

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I am exhausted! I’m still trying to get used to waking up every morning for work, but other than that, I’m enjoying my new job. As a whole, the position is pretty lax and way less stressful than my previous customer service jobs…

workingHowever, now that I work during the day Monday through Friday, I don’t really have that much time to blog as much as I once did. I pretty much conk out when I get off, but I’ve been trying my best to write when I can. Continue reading “Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Oct. 30th to Nov. 5th”

This week was my first week, woot! So, the school I got my bachelors degree at is working on a project with the Dept of Health and I’m working on that! Woot! The work is pretty easy and the hours are flexible, so there shouldn’t be any long-term effects on my blogging schedule… However, things might be kind of wonky this week since I’m still getting used to the schedule.

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This week has been kind of hectic… I have been running around all week so I wasn’t able to handle all of the blog business I wanted to this week… But, I did have fun hanging out with friends so that was definitely a plus!!

run-shoyo

I also got some super awesome news, but mums the word… at least until the details are set in stone! The other day I attended an event a friend of mine from GMU put on called Let’s Get Uncomfortable: Mental Health Makeover, about de-stigmatizing mental health in the Black community! Ya’ll it was an amazing program, there was a panel discussion, meditation, and various other self love activities! It was a ton of fun and I really feel like I learned a lot! Also, she runs a mental health blog, Don’t Die Afraid, and I highly recommend giving it a read, she has some amazing resources!!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 28th to Sept. 3rd

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So, I know I’m super late with this, but it’s Labor Day Weekend here in the States and I have been busy! I have been working in the revisions for the manuscript I mentioned last week. Let me tell you, editing a paper like this is extremely time consuming, and I’ve barely made much headway. In order to get away from the paper for a bit, I went to a thrift store and found a few books that I just had to add to my collection.

A special shout out to The Well-Red Mage and Pink-chan for also nominating me for the Entertainer Blogger Award! Even though I already wrote a post for the award, I still wanted to give a shout out to both of these amazing blogger! Thanks for thinking of me!! 😀

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 21st to Aug. 27th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!As some of you may know I was experiencing some technical difficulties with WordPress. Earlier this week I found myself unable to comment on other bloggers’s posts… So imagine my surprise when I discovered that all of my comments were being sent to you guy’s spam folders! I have since had the problem fixed, but I suggest you all check your spam folders regularly in case others are experiencing the same problem.

hit it

Okay now that I’m done with that, I actually have some good news! We finally heard back from the journal we sent our manuscript to… *drumroll* They want us to fix some things and resubmit… I know it sounds bad, but this is actually really good news and the comments they had were mostly positive. But, since I’m the first author on the paper, I’m responsible for bringing the paper up to snuff. So, what does that mean for you guys and the blog? Well, the paper takes priority, so if I go ghost you know why…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr.24th to Apr. 30th

I’m done…I’m finally done with graduate school… My last day of class was Wednesday, and there is just one open book, online final standing between me and my diploma! I don’t know whether I should celebrate, collapse in a heap and hibernate for a few weeks, or stare numbly at the wall in disbelief… But, I am done! This has been one of the most rewarding and frustrating experiences of my life and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I really can’t wait to get my diploma and start the next phase of my life!!! So how are you guys dealing with finals? Anyone else graduating? Or do you have a long way to go?

free

Get it, I’m free and this is a Free gif…

Okay, so do you guys remember my Big Graduation Project? Well if you don’t here’s a refresher… Since January, I have been working on a huge research paper looking at injury rates among adolescents…This paper has been a pain in the ass, but we are finally done with it! So why is this important? Well we (my group and I) just submitted our paper for publication in a scientific journal… and guess who’s the first author… it’s Me! So this is both a gift and a curse. Being first author comes with some nifty perks (bragging rights mostly), but I’m also the one responsible for fixing all the problems that the journal might find with the paper during review…So more work! Yay!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr. 17th-23rd

I am so glad that this week is over! So much for having free time to play games this week… Life saw that I had free time and did its damnedest to eliminate any hope of enjoying it! It seems like all of my school assignments were all due on Wednesday! EVERY SINGLE ONE! I had a presentation on Wednesday for a Worksite Wellness program I created and then I had an interview, which I’m pretty sure I bombed…But, the worst assignment by far has been my Big Graduation Research project! My professor ripped our paper a new one, so as a collective my team and I had over 100 revisions to make! I wanted to cry when I saw all the stuff she wanted us to change…

head to computer

I managed to muddle through it all, only to realize that I have finals coming up soon that I have to study for…So what little free time I had left was devoted to playing Starry Sky in Spring…and like a fool buying more new games…
