Hello, folks! I am still alive and well, thanks for asking! As you’ve all probably noticed by now, I haven’t been active on the blogosphere for quite some time now (the last post I wrote was for OWLS) so I wanted to address what has been going on from my side.
If I had to use one word to describe why I haven’t been blogging it would be “life”. This year, I’ve been working for my parents as well as writing my Masters thesis on J-Horror so that has been taking up most of my time. When do have time for some R ‘N R, I mostly use it to play video games.
But then again, saying that life is the reason why I haven’t been blogging feels like a cop-out answer and not necessarily a specific one. Apart from just being very busy with work, I haven’t had any inspiration as of late to write on my blog. While it’s not to say that I don’t enjoy writing on my blog, it’s just become a struggle trying to come up with interesting content to write on. In relation to that, my anime viewing has dwindled as of late. In the past, I always used to be up to date with most of the current season anime. These days, however, I haven’t been watching or following anime as much as before; which is a pity because there have been some good shows that have come out as of late that I haven’t had a chance to watch yet (then again, I’ve also been bad keeping up with my series so there’s that too). I will always love watching anime, it’s just trying to find the motivation to start a new show that’s been stopping me from watching.
With that being said, what’s next for That Baka Blog? Honestly, I can’t promise anything at this stage, but I am planning something exciting that I hope will come to fruition next year so keep your eyes peeled for that. Other than that, to my readers and fellow anibloggers, I’m sorry that I’ve been quiet as of late. Hopefully some spark of inspiration will come my way at some stage, but for now, I will see you guys on the flip side.
