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!
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.
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.
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 »
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.
