Happy New Year! 2019

January 1, 2019

Nope, this isn’t my end of (last) year anime rankings post either. 😛 Though I still have unfinished business from 2018 to deal with, time marches on regardless. Next post, I promise!

Still alive!

March 17, 2018

It’s been a few weeks since I posted here, my apologies! I was at an anime convention (Minamicon) last weekend, and was busy preparing for said convention the week before. I’ve fallen behind significantly on my weekly anime, so have spent all my evenings catching up on that. And I’ve been really busy at work on top it all off.

Happy New Year! 2018

January 7, 2018

A very belated Happy New Year to all my readers! My apologies, I was feeling a bit burned out after putting together all those end of year lists, marathoning manga to reach my ridiculously high Goodreads Challenge, and all the various other things I wanted to get out of the way by the end of 2017.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award – 7 Facts about AngryJellyfish

July 4, 2015

I can’t remember the last time I made a post on here that wasn’t a weekly rankings post or end of year Top 12 list… Hopefully this won’t be the last, but as ever I make no promises, since I’ll only end up breaking them!

So I was given the Dragon’s Loyalty Award by Medieval Otaku over a month ago, and while I won’t be nominating anyone else for it since I’m not a big fan of chain letters and the like, I still greatly appreciate the gesture, so will be fulfilling the ‘share 7 things other bloggers may not know about you’ part of the award. 🙂

This Summer season may end up being a good one for dragons in anime, what with all the fantasy shows!

Return of the Jellyfish!

November 18, 2012

AngryJellyfish is back! And by that I mean my internet speeds have returned to usable levels, faster than ever now that we’ve changed providers! Finally I can actually enjoy my days off from work, catch up with the current anime season, and write all those blog posts I’ve been promising since the summer, as well as all the end of year posts I always do in December. 😀 But for now, just an update.

GradStart Training Course

January 15, 2012

I’ll be away on a training course at Bangor University from later this afternoon until Thursday. It’ll be covering things that will supposedly increase my chances of finding employment – stuff like interview skills, CV pimping and finding my ‘unique selling point’ (apparently my awesome hair doesn’t count). This is the second time I’ve attended a graduate course there; the first was in 2010, a couple of weeks before I decided to start this blog actually. I found it informative, but decided to do an MSc instead of continuing to look for work, so most of what I learned last time has been replaced with info about wind farms. Hopefully this’ll refresh my memory, teach me new things, and finally lead to a job. If nothing else, it comes with 4* accommodation and free meals, which will be heavenly after two weeks without central heating!

However, I don’t know what the internet situation will be like there. Read the rest of this entry »


AngryJellyfish

December 15, 2011

I’ve been reading a lot more of other people’s blogs recently, mostly to seek out other ACAA lists and compare them to my own, but I plan to keep following those that strike me as well written, interesting, or just different. And I have to say there are a lot of differences between all the blogs I’ve seen. But one thing that almost all of them have in common is the presence of a separate page with a little background info on the blogger themselves.
