Aniwriter Update #12: Back to School Again

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

It is that time again to give you all an update on what’s going on with the blog. So, in order to keep this quick, let’s just get started.

Going Back to School

For me, the new semester has started and that means new classes. Right now I’m taking Intro to Philosophy and Intro to Poly Sci, which, so far, have been fairly interesting. However, me being back in school now part time and also working the same hours at my job as before means that I will have a lot less time to write, and that means less posts, so don’t expect as frequent updates.

Future Content

As someone who has been writing on this blog for approaching two years now, I have realized how easy it can be to fall back on doing the same thing over an over again. This is why that am really going to try and experiment when it comes to the content I make in the future. That includes new kinds of posts, as well as some potential collaborations, so stay tuned for those.

Posts from the Last Two Weeks

Normally, I would just list everything from the last two weeks that I have written, but since most of what I have done is just Poetry from the 30 Day Poetry Challenge, and Episode Reactions from the new season, I’ll just link those categories here.

And that’s it for this update. Yeah, not to much going on for this one.

Untitled, or not, I’m not sure

Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to The Aniwriter.

A poem about titles, because why not. Here ya go:

When I thought about what to write for this poem,
I didn’t start with a title.
Despite this being my usual working style, something told me to forgo it.
Titles are often just short summaries, a fraction of a fraction.
They can tell you everything, and nothing.
In that regard, they’re quite useless, aren’t they?
Titles also make us think about what it is we’re about to read, watch, etc.
For example, the title “Death of a salesman” might get us thinking, both in a literal
and figurative way.
People make judgments based off of titles, and no matter how often you tell somebody
“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” it won’t change the fact that its a lot easier to read the
cliff notes version than a whole book.
Most often when I think of titles, I think of what the author thinks of that thing.
It is easy to engage with a piece of art and come away with a completely different
idea of the work than even the author, similar to how everyone jumping into a pool
will always have a slightly different splash, or maybe a very different splash.
Titles are often the rival of expectations, and much like a pool, expectations can often be
surface level, until you splash further down.

How did this turn out? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you want to support the Aniwriter through donations or are just feeling generous, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-Fi. Otherwise, thanks for reading and bye for now, Friendos!
