Animated Observations Update #7: New Opportunities and a Much Needed Break

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

It says a lot about the stress college induces when it feels like I have already been there for a year and yet I literally have only been there for like a few months. Aside from that though, everything has been going pretty well overall. By the time this comes out I will probably be in full study/work mode. While that is going on, though, I want to make sure all of you wonderful people are informed as to what is going on, so here is another update.

Getting a New Job (Kind of)

So, I mentioned it on Twitter roughly a week ago, but starting next school semester I will officially be a columnist for The Daily Beacon, the University of Tennessee’s own Newspaper. I kind of applied for the job out of curiosity, not really knowing what to expect. The same day I sent in my application the opinion editor for the paper emailed me back saying that I got an interview. The interview happened just one week later, and by Friday of that same week they told me I had the job. Now, its not a paid job, which of course sucks, but it is also an opportunity to write about anime to a whole new group of readers, so overall I am excited.

As of right now, it is kind of up in the air as to what exactly the column will be about. The main focus will for sure be anime, but otherwise I have a wide variety of ideas as to what specifically I am going to focus on.

After everything gets going and I start publishing on a regular basis I will link all of the stuff I write on here as well. That way, you guys can read them too.


Winter Break

After what feels like a long semester, I am finally getting the chance to relax in just a few weeks. Hopefully this means I can work on more blog related content and my own personal writing too. Speaking of getting to work on things…

The 300 Follower Thank You!

As I mentioned in my last update, I promised on Twitter that if I get to 300 WordPress followers I would shout all of them out in a video. School and a lot of others things have prevented me from being able to get that done, but since I will have more time coming up soon, I should be able to get working on that. Expect it out sometime in December, hopefully in the first half of the month.
