And so it’s Wednesday again. I’m actually excited about it this time because tonight is my last work night of the week. I put in for a nice, long four day weekend because ‘Beauty and the Beast’ comes out tomorrow night and I will be there to see it the first showing available. I’ve had my tickets for well over a month now. There may be an extra post this week specifically fangirling over that movie (or sobbing over how they destroyed it, depending on how it goes, I guess) so keep an eye out. If not before, that will likely be the topic of ‘Random Sunday’ this week.
Anyway, on to the updates! (The part probably no one reads, but hey, it’s fun to keep track of.)
Watching: ‘Fairy Tail’ currently episode 108. Look, I made some progress! I’m almost halfway there! This weekend, I plan to push past that halfway mark. It’s my birthday Sunday and since I’m saving my funds for MomoCon, why not spend it relaxing and watching anime?
I’m currently in quite a state of distress because it seems as though some characters I love dearly are dead. However, if there’s one thing I learned about this show, it’s that it is incredibly difficult to kill a member of Fairy Tail. Even when you think one of them is dead, even if you see the body, it’s no guarantee they’re gone.
Reading: ‘The Choosing’ by Rachelle Dekker. I was really excited about this series. Ted Dekker is one of my favorite authors and since Rachelle is his daughter, I figured the apple couldn’t fall very far from the tree. It is a good book, don’t get me wrong. However, it touches on one of my personal biggest pet peeves and that’s making it incredibly difficult to get through. I started it last Friday and I just reached the halfway mark yesterday. That’s painfully slow progress in my case. Considering the fact that they’re due back to the library Monday and I’m only on book one out of three, I doubt I’ll make it through the entire series even with four days off. At this point, I’d much rather focus on my anime list.
Important note: The fact that this book isn’t my cup of tea DOES NOT mean I do not recommend it. In fact, I would highly recommend it, because she’s a new author and very talented. It simply touches on my pet peeve of a girl believing she’s nothing without a man, or being a wife and feeling she has no other place in the world. I know a change of heart is coming (at least I hope it is), it’s just a long road getting there, apparently. And I also know the main character’s reaction is completely realistic with how she was raised, it just grates on my nerves. THE BOOK IS STILL GOOD, OKAY? Read it and let us discuss.
Cosplaying: Might as well throw this in here, right? I’m super excited because I have all of the pieces I need for my Winry cosplay, minus the wig. That was shipped yesterday and should be here within two weeks, so the email says. I cannot wait to put it all together! I’m honestly more excited for this than I was for the ‘Attack on Titan’ cosplay I did. Wish me luck!
That’s all for this week. Time to get back to work and adulting and all that ‘fun’ stuff us nerds try to avoid. Until next time, nerd dudes and nerdettes!
