Last night’s anime party was boffo. It worked out better than I had hoped; the slightly weak anime picks Amazon.com offered me (Boogiepop, Black Heaven, Bastard, Utena, Princess Nine… all good stuff but not all appropriate for a rowdy anime party) were nicely supplemented by Julio’s fansub collection (Slam Dunk, Initial D, Spriggan). That plus the newly assembled foosball table and my bitchin’ new couch equalled, oh, 16 hours of party fun. Wooo!
And now I can sit down and watch some of the DVDs we passed on, enjoy a lazy sunday, and so on.
The question now becomes… I’ve moved into the new place, settled down, had a few key events go by, and now have a routine. Does this mean I’m back on track and can get to my creative projects again? Or… will the week long course in rockville I’m taking next week rearrange things around again?
As you all know, I have too many fun things to do. Various games, activities, projects, and social situations call out for me to pay attention to them whenever I get spare time. And the worst of it is when I neglect something that others rely on me for (RPing or writing, for instance) in favor of something else. Isn’t it a wee bit bizarre to feel guilty for having one type of fun instead of another? But, I do want to make my friends/fans happy, so it’s not an easy question.
So, depending on how the course goes next week, I could resume working on those hobbies or I could wait up until things REALLY settle down.
Despite this situation, I’m actually quite upbeat. I’ve adjusted to the apartment easier than I ever expected and I’m damn happy to be here.
