I rate shows based on how much I enjoyed watching them. In my reviews, I try to assign points a little more objectively.

Below 3 stars: Factor of how annoyed I was by the end of it.

3: Average story/characters, somewhat enjoyable.

3.5: Average story/characters, enjoyable-very enjoyable.

4: Above average, enjoyable.

4.5: Above average, hugely enjoyable.

5: Above and beyond average, hugely enjoyable, unusual/memorable, and well-done.

Wow! 2-3 jobs? That's a lot! One is the ESL (Is that in the US?), but would you mind sharing a bit about what the other one(s) is/are? I've got a pretty decent job as an engineer, myself, atm.  Discord is definitely the move to make for convenience and privacy, but I"m also fine talking on here, as well. :) I haven't seen Chihayafuru yet, although I've definitely heard of it. Is it worth checking out? Have you checked out Carole and Tuesday? The beginning was a bit rocky, as it's hard to get attached to the characters, but it was a surprisingly powerful show, by its end. What did you think about Weathering With You? I still think Garden of Words is my favorite Shinkai by a mile, but I saw Weathering with You In theaters two times, and enjoyed it both times. He keeps pushing the limits of anime, that's for sure. Anyway, glad to hear back from you. I know it may be infrequent, but I hope we can stay in contact to some extent. :) Let me know if you ever have time to watch a show; I'd be down to try watching something on a 1-2 eps a week basis simultaneously or real time with you.

Hey Snivets, at this point I don't remember how we lost touch, and even my memory of our undoubtedly many conversations has begun to fade, but I'm in a new phase of anime fandom, so I wanted to at least reach out and say hi. Do you hang out on Discord at all, by chance? I'm a  regular on there, including in the AP chat.

Any objections to Sakura Con 2017? I'm telling you far enough in advance so you can plan for it. Just like old times.

So, I jumped back on this site just cuz. Then I saw 'Snivets' in my profile comments. I thought: "Wait, what?". Look at the date posted. "Yup, that's from the dorms." Check profile page. Think: "Wait, there's no way Nate has watched that much anime". Read through profile blerb: "Oh, right. This isn't Nate."

I'm glad I recommended this site to you. Remind me the story of why you're using his screen name?

I enjoyed your taste and your lists so I decided to follow you. ^_^ 

Also, you can add Golden Time to your list of anime that involve college students.
