Insanity

Holy guacamole! So much has changed since the last time I posted, I felt like my previous post actually jinxed the turn of events. I mentioned previously that we had a COVID-19 scare, but after that, we had — not just a scare, but an actual case in the boarding house. My roommate tested positive …

This Is What’s New

Not much. Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! is my new addiction! I have binged their No Laughing Batsu Game series, Kiki series, and Absolutely Tasty series over and over again and am about to watch more of their other episodes. I love their comedy. They rock! I haven’t been playing against real people …

Hobbies Update

Here comes once again My Year in Books! I read 55 books last year out of my original goal of 30. Pretty good! A lot of my reads were classics I got from Feedbooks. My lengthiest title thus far I have read last year, Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. With Game of Thrones (TV) ending …

Although I have listened to an orchestra live before (earlier this year, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra …

Я не умер.

It feels like it’s been ages since I posted anything here. First of all, I forgot to renew my domain on time, so this blog was inaccessible for weeks. I managed to retrieve it before the grace period ended. I actually planned to just replace lysianth.us with meowandsparkle.party, a domain that I already pre-registered for …

The Insincere Fan

Point blank, let me say: I am a fan. I am a fan of many things. Recently, I saw an interesting tweet storm by a fan of a person I am also a fan of, and hoo boy, do I have a lot of opinions about that thread of tweets. Basically, she, Poster, was saying …
