Back in Action

0randombabbleOkay, so, I have made several posts by now about how I am going to be more active this time. Let’s be real – this blog is literally called Adventures in Procrastination, and what says procrastination more than constantly putting off activity? All the same, I don’t think that is much of an excuse. I made this blog to ensure that I continue to motivate myself. I want to be able to have progress and be able to show off my work, and yet I find myself constantly distracted by inane subject matter.

I want that to change. In real life, I had a few upsetting months and I now find myself living alone for the first time. Now that it is just me and my dogs, I find that I have a lot more ability to focus than ever before. As such, I want that productivity. I want that creativity back. I’m back to exactly where I started when I was first making this blog.

Thinking to my past self and the numerous messages littered across this site, it is time to get back in the game and force myself to produce that desired change. ( •̀ᄇ• ́)ﻭ✧

1webdesignSo, first and foremost, I have finally created something in the world of web design that I have been wanting to make for years. A full and complete writing archive. Writing has always been my biggest passion in the world and I have been doing it on the internet since I was 13 years old. I started with fanfiction and, when I got more confident, I started posting original stuff. Although fanfiction still outweighs my original work by a massive margin, I enjoyed the entire journey. I am not releasing it to the public just yet because I want to buy a proper domain name for it because it is going to be a permanent site that I will be posting all of my future work. It’s my baby that has been coming for years and it deserves its own special place on the internet and in my network. Either way, it took me quite a while to collect all my writing from several different sites and I am happy to now finally have it all in one place. Such a relief; you have no idea! I will be super excited to release it to the public when the time comes and I hope that other people will enjoy my work as well (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑

1readingI have this desire to start buying one book with every paycheck I get and so far, I haven’t been able to do that. Being an adult on my own, I’m still busy playing catch up with my bills before I can start that but in the mean time, I still have the books that I own that I still haven’t ever read or finished. So I want to start working on those. I have several novels and manga to read through that I simply haven’t caught up on because my book buying desire sometimes outweighs my ability to get around to actually reading them. I’m sure every single reader has had this happen at least once.

Right now, I am busy playing catch up with the manga that I have been following for quite some time. Namely:

  • Shokugeki no Souma
  • Haikyuu!!
  • Ao no Exorcist

Once I have caught up with those, I have a bunch of new manga that I have been recommended and need to read on my tablet. On the physical copy side, I have several novels that I want to officially read through that I have owned for years but have never actually gotten around to. Seems like these days, I now have some extra focus but none of the motivation.

1videogamesIn the world of video games, I have been wanting to play through more and more video games. I’m still bad at finishing games but I want to actually get through more and prove that I can wrap a damn game for once. Right now, I am currently working on Fire Emblem: Birthright. I am almost done – I have three more chapters to go! After I finish it, I want to replay it just so I can grind all the supports and get a better feel for all the characters (♥ω♥ ) ~♪ With my current rush play-through, I have not been giving the characters as much attention as I could be! Plus, with my lack of patience over weak characters, half of my team gets left by the roadside so I definitely want to follow up with them and finally see about getting all of the damn kids!

I’m pretty sure that’s all I have to cover for the moment because I have been an unproductive blob over the past few months. So let’s get this ball rolling and actually finally get this blog back to the active status that I always dreamed it to be!
