Whoa, I haven't written a blog post for ages. Well, now it's about time to.
When the sun is shining like Gollum's treasure, you see more and more people walking in short shorts and tiny tops, and it's too hot at night to sleep, you just gotta lay down the facts. It's summer!
I'm not really a summer person, because I get dizzy easily and don't have energy to do anything, but so far this couple of weeks that have been the warmest here in Finland I've enjoyed myself, always keeping a water bottle with me though ^^
Though I still have school for two more weeks or so (in which, by the way, the air conditioning is heavenly :3), I'm already preparing for summertime and vacation. This year, as before, I couldn't find a job, and since our vacation is a little shorter this time around, I think I'll just relax and spend the time well on stuff I've been forced to put aside for a while (like anime, manga, games, movies, friends, sleep, my hamsters, exercise.... to name a few),
With that, I realized I have so many interesting anime series yet to watch. They're coming out at such a pace that by the time I've watched one or two series from this spring, ten more intriquing summer season-titles are aired at the same time. And since I have such classics in my want to watch list as Desert Punk (2004), it's..... it's like an endless loop :P
So, to speed things up before my vacation starts and to clear some space for the titles I want to watch in summer, I've thought up "Operation Anime-list Sweeping" (or, Operation Clearing Hard Drives). The idea is that during the next..... exactly 2 weeks, before my vacation starts and before the next A-P hosted marathon (and also, before my friends' welcoming party and Midsummer's Day, all in the same date), I will watch as many anime from my lists as I can without adding any more titles there, therefore clearing some space in my hard drives and the lists as well. I will set myself goals on the number of titles needed to be completed before the vacation. This is so that when my vacation starts, I'll be done with some of the old titles that have been hanging in my lists and reserving space in my computer, depressing me with the same old, same old stuff I just couldn't get around to finish.
Right now (Thursday, June 9th) my anime stats are as follow (after moving all from watching to stalled):
64 want to watch
To some that might seem a low number, but I'm just a slow watcher that those have been about the same stats for like a year. And I want a change!
I'll try to get it to
55 want to watch
That sounds like a good combo. And I have some movies in the lists as well, so I don't think it will be too hard for 2 weeks.
I'll see how this will work in reality, school is pretty easy now so I'll hopefully have more time to watch. I'll post some updates along the way, if someone is actually still reading this :D
