Do you remember me? It’s that perpetually procrastinating writer with a penchant for old-fashioned language.
Looking back I realize I published my last post on the 15th of June. That’s exactly four months ago. What have I been doing all this time? If you’re interested in my day-to-day real life, or the evident lack of, you can follow me on Twitter or read this short recapitulation of the past months. Those impartial to my daily adventures can skip ahead to the emphasized “As for this blog:” subheading.
Officially I have 13 weeks of summer vacation. In reality I spent 11 weeks working, 1 at school and in the last one I'll be doing housework.—

To put it simply, in June I had school, from July to mid-September I had a more-than-fulltime job and then went back to school. Oh, don’t forget that in-between all that we have been trying to furnish the apartment we moved into in April.
Have you ever read/heard those great speeches on how university students are the bane of society, lazy and worthless bums living off the proper hard-working citizens? Let me tell you, I’m one of the few of my peers who works only in the summer. Others work fulltime alongside school and I feel like a good-for-nothing compared to them, not that speaker. *fumes* /rant
Bottom line, I’m currently still in university and doing a bit of English tutoring on the side. My free time is basically made up of ‘time when I should be sleeping’ and ‘time when I should be studying.’
As for this blog:
Perhaps you have noticed the new headers. Both depict a Genshiken character, Sue Hopkins, in cosplay. In the one with a question mark she is wearing Meruru’s Alchemist outfit (from the JRPG Atelier Meruru); in the other she is dressed as princess Gruier Serenity of Bodacious Pirates. Any feedback of the blog design is welcome!
I hope to steal some time to write more often. Meanwhile I have one real post written and set to publish on Thursday, so look forward to that.
