Well, hi there. It's been a week. Unfortunately I seem to be doing this more often these days. Social media and I are not seeing eye to eye these days. But mainly I think it's just that I've been fighting a wicked cold since last Thursday. Much physical fragility and sore throatedness was experienced, all coming to a bursting point on Sunday, leading me to spend the whole day (and most of Monday) in the house taking it easy.

This means for most of the time since I last posted, other than a little coursera, I've been in MEDIA! CONSUMPTION! MODE! and that is what I have to share with you. SO LET US DO IT.

manga, anime, games, tv, etc )

...and with that I've got about 1 minute before I have to leave for work. Not even finished (wanted to talk about Sakanactionnnnn, also wanted to check/edit), but oh well. Talk to you later!

Hah so yesterday's entry was written while on a very happy beer buzz, though perhaps it was obvious idk. Anyway, I was mainly just happy about music and PS4. BTW, if you haven't read up on what was announced at the Playstation conference there is a nice collection post here. Makes me excited for TGS this weekend, though all I really want is a P5 release date. Anything else would be a bonus?

I've been getting emails from Coursera the past couple weeks advertising all these new courses and/or specialties starting this week, and since my Japanese teacher and I are taking a break these next two weeks, decided to use the extra time to look into stuff. I joined an HTML5 class, the first course in a specialization in Web Design (I'm not doing the pay-for specialization certificate, just planning on following the classes for free). I've liked web design since I was a teen, but my knowledge is rusty and outdated. The last time I took a web design class was 2007 and the landscape has changed some, you know? And I do still want to set up that website, so the refresher is necessary.

Also interesting to note that the class in Python programming I took last year has been expanded into a four course series. Don't think now is the right time, but it's something to keep in mind.

Last night Katsushi and I watched the first episode of Orange is the New Black. We aren't sure how much we liked it. It gets better, right? Everyone talks so highly of it and I really want to enjoy it.

Update.

So my last two entries were not about current going-ons at all. There isn't a whole lot to cover, though. It was an easy work week, but goddammit everyone around me was sick. I've been fighting falling into legit cold space for the past few weeks, but they pushed me! Started feeling crappy Friday and Saturday I just kinda physically collapsed after work. Stayed in all evening and all of Sunday, don't have a lot of hope for today either.

...BUT ONTO SOME SILLY/FUN STUFF:

Disneyland! Netflix! Gremlins! Fire Emblem! )

The week progresses! I've been having fun, mainly with silly things. First off, WE NOW HAVE NETFLIX IN JAPAN. Service was supposed to start Wednesday, but they let people start signing up and watching Tuesday night. Best part is they are offering a free month! Sweeet! Katsushi and I have been watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and it has been awesome! The selection is still on the small size, naturally, but they have a pretty good lineup considering, so I am hopeful it's gonna turn into something great.

Other than that, I've been starting to plan my upcoming vacations!. I started collecting Okinawa tips from students the past few days, as it seems like most adults have been there at least once. Think that's how I'm mainly going to be deciding what I want to do. But also I'm pretty sure we're going to pick a very basic, vanilla tour plan for my first time. There are so many islands in Okinawa, but I think I just need to start on the main island and do the typical touristy things so that next time I'll be able to explore other islands.

And then there are my Tokyo Disneyland plans. Disney trip planning rambles )
