Where the hell have I been?

When a (slightly weird) post appeared up here yesterday, you probably began wondering what I’ve been doing for the past few months that’s so much more important than updating my blog.

tl;dr I have no excuse whatsoever.

To cut a long story short, I just haven’t really been doing anything. Well, actually, I haven’t really been in the mood to do anything other than attempt to write fiction (think space mechs, dieselpunk and fancy department stores) and occasionally play a game or watch a supposedly trashy Asian drama (all of them were actually pretty good).

So is everything back to normal now? Am I eagerly trying to catch up with what I’ve missed? No, not really, unless you can count a few anime from this season I’ve been watching. I just feel like writing here again.

For now you’ll probably be seeing posts more akin to yesterday’s and maybe some random thoughts about storytelling-related topics (for those of you who like TV Tropes. Yes, that means that my schedule will probably become extremely irregular and possibly infrequent compared to my previous weekly schedule, but some is better than none, right?

Speaking of the future, I may or may not begin streaming in the near future for some reasons that cannot yet be divulged. I can only leave a quick hint in the form of a slightly old tweet.

But for now, I suggest you sit back, relax and watch me review my lunches when I’m too lazy to cook for myself.

Hey, I have that tea set!

By the way, if there are any shows that I simply must watch this season (or even from the last year) please let me know. I’ve been out of the game far too long.

I started watching Violet Evergarden and it’s just beautiful. Pure beauty.

I’m still alive, but…

As the title reads, I’m still alive and so is this blog. However, I probably won’t be posting for a while since my exams are starting in less than a week.

I did have a Ghost in the Shell review scheduled for a couple weeks ago, but, after 45 minutes in an empty screen and an angry chat with the cinema’s manager, I still haven’t  had the chance to see it. I was also going to talk about Persona 5 at some point, but only 2 hours into my play-through, I don’t think I’ve experienced enough of the game to say something worth anything.

I might get some time to post something short towards the end of exam season, but for now, don’t expect a post from this blog in the next six weeks or so…


I’ll still be on Twitter occasionally, though (when I’m not cramming equations and vocab).

3 things about me:

  1.  Despite being a total sucker for shoujo/jousei manga and rom-coms, my friends seem to think that I only ever watch action movies.
  2.  Even though I’m technically grade 4 in piano and violin, I can’t read music score for the life of me.
  3. Even though I’m always seen in the morning with a cup of Costa in my hand, I actually don’t like hot drinks that much.

 Matthew’s 5 questions

1. If you were in a story, would you like to be a good guy or bad guy (or good girl or bad)

Probably the bad guy, since it’s much more fun to mess with someone that be the one being messed with.

2. Are you night owl or early bird?

Well I like to go to bed in the afternoon and wake up at around midnight. Does that count as both?

3. What is one movie you feel is a guilty pleasure?

Well, apparently, I’m not allowed to like High School Musical anymore…

4. What’s your favorite superhero?

I’m really tempted to say Aquaman purely because of this web series I saw a while back, but then again I’m not really a big enough fan of superheroes to have a favourite.

5. What would you rather have, wings and fly anywhere or the power to rewind time?

I feel like the power to rewind time would actually be much more useful. I mean, think of all that lottery money I could win and the number of time I could get full marks in exams…

My 5 Questions

  1. What’s the one trope/clichĂ© you can’t stand?
  2.  Would you rather live the rest of your life without sweet food or meat products?
  3. What genre would your life be?
  4.  Do you prefer tea or coffee?
  5. What’s your favourite food that isn’t native to your country?

My Nominations (in no particular order)

 

Shoujo Ramen

This is an introductory post and also my first blog post (as far as you’re concerned).

This blog will be dedicated to the things I like, which mainly consists of anime, manga, video games and maybe even food and other things I happen to enjoy or find interesting.

You should probably be able to tell by now that the name of this blog, Shoujo Ramen, originates from two thing I enjoy dearly; shoujo manga and ramen (the real stuff, not the instant one).

I hope this blog can actually be interesting…
