Time management is not happening... :)

I was so hoping that I would have more time to post in my LJ, but it's not happening somehow. By the time I get home, do dinner, take care of stuff around the house and so on, it's almost time for bed.

*sigh*

I've also decided to reduce the communities that I've been a part of on LJ. I just don't have time to read through their posts, and most stuff just isn't interesting anymore. I've noted a strong shift away from manga and anime - mostly because it's starting to bore me. I've been a fan for over 35 years now, and there's not really much new coming out that I want to watch or read. I guess I'm getting old(er). ^^

Most of my time is spent in the office, as it should be. Since I commute, the evening hours have become very reduced. They only leave time for quick peeks at Facebook and a few fun pages like the Dragon Cave, but that's it. A bit of gaming, a bit of watching movies, and the day's done.

Do I mind?

Not really. I am sad that I'm no longer able to be as free with my time as I used to. But investing it into my future, instead, is where I want to be.



Took a few pics of flowers in my garden yesterday. We haven't had much of a summer (or spring, for that matter), so there isn't much blooming yet. Instead, we had floods the like of which haven't been seen in this country in a hundred years. Since I don't live near a river, I didn't have a problem, but lots of people that I know, did.

It's still cold and rainy. Temperatures in the fifties. Doesn't sound like summer, does it?

Makes me look forward to my Italy vacation even more this year.

But... here we go, a few flowers for you. :) Enjoy. :)

You know, I know how it feels. Manga and anime have been so boring for me in the past years, and I've just been a fan for about ten years.
But every now and then, once a year or so, I see that there's something new from Sanami Matoh and POOF, I'm fourteen again. I cherish these moments, they are incredibly dear to me.

It just seems that it's the same stories over and over again. So I kind of lost interest...

I confess, I haven't even checked Matoh's page in the last few months. I think I'll have to do that again... ^^

I just recently found out she's made another FAKE doujinshi. Idk, the manga just means so much to me, it always takes me back to the good times when I skipped school for the very first time just so I could go to the store and get my copy of the newest volume... Haah, memories. :3

Anime and manga have gotten repetitive and derivative and I've gotten over them.

I read fast and, after months of not finding anything new, I tend to change fandoms. Oh, well.

As to the flowers, I recognize most of them. But what is the dark pink and white, trumpet shaped one and the yellow one? Please?

Yes, the've gotten boring for me. Usually they tell the story from a perspective (that of a young person) that's no longer relevant to me. I prefer things with a bit more depth to them.

Currently I'm wallowing happily in The Hobbit Part 1. ^^

The flowers from top to bottom:

Lily
Nemesia
Rose
Mullein
Snapdragon

Beautiful flowers!!

Hmm, still not bored of anime, but I'm a huge One Piece fan and that is still going strong. Plus I'm still finding series I really like (Soul Eater, Fullmetal Alchemist). I've been a fan almost 20 years, so I'm happy I still find new things to like.

Can you send some of the cool weather to south Texas? It was 106 today...

Thank you. :)

I do re-watch some of the older stuff, but the newer ones just don't speak to me... Maybe I'm getting old. ;)

Oh, I'd love to swap! We have weather in the 50s and 60s at the moment! Much to cold for me... *brrrrr*

*pushes clouds in the direction of Texas* ^^
