It’s been a while.
I’m a doctor in name now, and I’m currently plunging into the strenuous world of residency. So much so that it’s a little hard to do things like watch anime (which I do in spurts), or write about it. But I’m starting to get into the pace of hospital work better, so hopefully there shouldn’t be a three-month writing layoff again as there has been here. After getting a long white coat, you sort of get an idea of what it takes to keep one, which I hope Hakase and
Hououin Okabe Rintarou learn throughout their goals as scientists.
In other news, I made a brief drop in at Otakon this year on Friday and Sunday. Not knowing how my call schedule would work for this weekend was a little nerve-wracking, as the risk of me not being able to go at all while wasting the registration fee was a strong possibility. I managed to sort of luck out, as I had the night shift on Friday and Saturday. Taking time to enjoy things to the fullest, I arrived on Friday, spent some hours waiting for a Shinkai autograph (he’s a cool, down to earth dude), watched parts of panels, and managed to hook up and say hey to most of the people who I wanted to see again. After that, it was a quick run back to work where I had an eventful Friday night, leaving me dead tired and prioritizing getting rest over probably sleeping in panels on Saturday. Saturday night was still tiring, but I was able to make it back on Sunday for the last hours of the convention. Alas, I had no time for karaoke, but I did manage to meet up with more long-time seen friends, and catch some more half-panels or so.
And I did take some amount of pictures throughout as well.
And with work, it’s been a time trying to play catch up regarding anime this season as well. I’m still trying to finish up series that I started last season, and I’ve only really stepped my toe into Yuru Yuri for the moment (as if you expected any different from me, show-choice-wise. :P). But life is good. And there’ll definitely be more talk about actual shows for me next time.
