Three Years, Baby

And hopefully another three hundred more!

My dear, darling blog is three years old today. Three years old! I’ll have to be taking it off to pre-school soon…

Amusingly enough, I graduated from college a year ago, which means that, two years before I graduated, I somehow managed to pick the same exact date upon which to found my blog. Funny coincidence!

I unfortunately do not have much to say; I’ve been very busy lately, and continue to be so now, as in a few hours I’ll be jumping on a train to go elsewhere again. It’s wedding and commissioning season, what can I say? I’m busy officiating vows of various sorts! In fact, to give you an idea of how busy I’ve been, my hair is too long but I’ve just had to let it grow since I can’t manage to get to the hairdressers. Alas, poor Day.

So! GAR GAR Stegosaurus is in no danger whatsoever of going extinct (teehee~!), but the slowdown you may’ve witnessed over the past few months is going to continue for at least a bit longer. I’m also behind on every anime I was following, as work has eaten up my time, weddings have, commissionings have, and… Pokemon has. No, really. HeartGold is a fantastic game. And I’m happy I finally caved and bought a DS.

Expect more manga reviews over the next few months, as I can read those during my commute and have run across quite a few truly delightful reads (I really do need to do a Twin Spica post; best thing I’ve read for manga in a long while… well, new manga – Aoi Hana and Hourou Musuko continue to be absolutely wonderful)… as well as some incredibly heinous crap, not all of which was even a fun read.

In other news, if you find the video from Funimation’s Anime Boston panel, you can see me from behind. I’m the first one to ask a question, and, yes, my hair is very pink =)

So, bitches, I shall continue to grace you with my blogging presence, and thank you for your patience with my ass-hattery and need to talk about things no one really cares about (hello Jigoku Shoujo!). It just warms my heart.

    Wow, weird to think that I’ve been around for only a third of it’s history.

    You’re the second person I’ve seen mention Twin Spica in as many days, Emily has been on my case to read it as well. I think I’ll be picking it up soon, given that you have this amazing ability to influence my manga purchasing habits.

    Well, good luck and all that. And here’s to many more years.

      Well, given that I may or may not be about to become a shiki due to that adorable shiki owl…. I may still be blogging in three hundred years!

    Congrats for the three long years and many, many MOAR!

    Team Shiki ftw~ :3

    • adaywithoutme says:

      Team Shiki is totally gonna take over the aniblogosphere.

      Congrats on your own three years!

  18. Ryan A says:

    Yesss, congrats on three years Day! Could always use more manga posts so I look forward to that, and the ass-hattery is quite welcome. Cheers!

    • adaywithoutme says:

      Don’t worry, there will be lots of manga posts. Its all I have time for these days ^^;

  19. Nazarielle says:

    oh my god that is an amazing gif. You are awesome Day.

    Also, I watched Jigoku Shoujo because of you (well, and my friend constantly badgering me about it). And now I can see why you could still want more after 3 full 26 ep seasons.

    • adaywithoutme says:

      I am not responsible for the gif, though.

      Yeah, I’m still holding out for that fourth season. A GIRL CAN DREAM.

  20. Elineas says:

    Congratulations! Now if you only stopped betraying my love of your blog with unfinished series posts… *cough*houroumusuko&thenowbehindanohana*cough*

    • adaywithoutme says:


      Ano Hana is just kind of hard for me to watch. I’m going to (probably) catch up on it today, though.

  21. Martin says:

    I’ve enjoyed reading your posts so here’s to three more years of ’em. Considering how jadedness and Real Life often get in the way of allowing us to do things we find fun, it really is something to be congratulated when you can keep going…and I hope you can continue to.

    For the record, I always thought Megumi was kinda cool. Certainly not a hater here. ^_^

    • adaywithoutme says:

      And life seriously has been getting in the way of my blogging as of late. May clear up slightly by mid-summer, but we’ll see. I would like to at least attempt to get a post per week done.

      Megumis my second favorite Shiki character, which is pretty interesting considering my favorite is the self-loathing and ineffectual Muroi!
