I've pretty much got my plate full for the next few months, so I'm not sure when I'll start reviewing again. I'm applying to Graduate School in the first week of March, so I have a lot of information to gather in the mean time. Plus, I start my final semester for my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in a week. Lots and lots of reading will inevitably take over my anime viewing time. :-( However, I will return.
On an unrelated note, I'm terribly depressed about a recent laptop mishap. Especially since I consider my laptop an extension to my right arm. Although I have McAfee Antivirus installed, a virus totally attacked my system yesterday. I assume it was an application that I recently downloaded to convert media files. I also assume it was a virus because when I turned on my computer, the screen started flashing so much it was like mid-day Mardi Gras. It wouldn't even go to my start-up window. It did give me the option to reset ALL of my settings and files back to the manufacture settings. (Aka: Delete everything I care about and have accumulated.) I had all of my media files and written documents backed-up, thankfully. That be a lesson. ALWAYS back-up everything. Always. Of course, there was ONE thing that I forgot to back-up, my Favorite Websites bar on Internet Explorer. Over fifty different websites assorted into different catagories gone. There's no way that I'll be able to remember where they all are. That coupled with the fact, that I'll have to reinstall all of my Sims 2 games and the two different printers that I use has just made me sad. Over the past six months, I had a family of Sims that hit perfect. Then they had kids, and I made them accomplish Platinum mode. Then I made them have children and was playing with a third generation. Perhaps I should have figured out how to back-up the Sims 2 games. Lameness.
I am thankful that I made this journal though. With all of my Favorites gone, at least I have my Ultimate Anime List entry to remind me what anime I've already seen, plan to watch, and what anime I'm currently keeping an eye on for further seasons. I'm also glad that my six month old laptop didn't explode all together. So I'll try to look on the bright side of this situation because it could have been a lot worse. With that being said, I just wanted to do a quick update to inform anyone who happens to stumble here and likes to read my reviews.
Since 2011 is the year of the Rabbit, I'm going to put a quote from my favorite character from "Fruits Basket", Momiji. I was also born under the year of the Rabbit, so this year is suppose be very lucky! Maybe my luck will start next month...
"I believe... I want to live my life, carrying my memories with me. Even if those memories are painful, even if those memories do nothing but hurt me... Even those memories I wish I could forget. As long as I keep carrying them with me and don't run away from them. Someday... Someday, I believe I will get to the point where I'm not oppressed by those memories. That's what I believe. I'd like to think that there's not a single memory that I have which would be okay to forget."
