As summer comes to an end (a fact I am totally not okay accepting) I was wondering how all of your summers went? I talk to quite a few of you here often but it would be fun to talk about our summers here and get to know each other even more. :)
To start off...let me tell you how mine went...a few highlights from my summer.
After years of being a let's play watcher, I finally got Steam this summer (thank you Steam Summer Sale). And of all the games I could have gotten, I chose Outlast and Don't Starve Together. Who needs sleep when you can play horror games, right? T_T
>>> Fan Merch
I bought my very first fan merch stuff ever! I got a couple Kpop albums, posters and...I got a Totoro plush and the 25th anniversary Totoro picture book. I AM BASICALLY A CHILD. A broke child but a fangirl child nonetheless.
Summers are not entirely perfect, right? I was away from home for most of the summer and didn't see my family for a really long time because of college as well. But I had friends who made me feel at home, so I am really grateful for that. :)
>>> Kitten Adventures
My roommate got a new kitten the last week that I was staying with her and he was the most ADORABLE little thing EVER! His name is Bambi and he always used to wait outside my door and follow me around as I walked through the house. I know what pet I'm getting if I ever get one.
>>> Watching Shows
I watched a LOT of things this summer. From movies to animes to TV shows...K-dramas. You name it. It is my greatest stress-relief and I am always looking to take my mind off of things through these entertaining distractions.
I had a really rewarding internship this summer and I met a whole bunch of creative people so that was really exciting. My office was not anything like the one in this gif. It was actually quite a fun environment and I learned SO MANY THINGS. It was the best! ^_^
>>> Reading Stuff
I read quite a bit this summer as well. Not as much as I would have liked to. And webcomics count right? Because that's mostly what I have been reading! XD
>>> Exploring The City
I explored a lot of places in NYC this summer since that's where I was working. It was a lot of fun. I never thought I would say this but I LOVED the city. And it will always have a special place in my heart! <3
I fangirl-ed a lot this summer. Like A LOT. When new and exciting things happen in all your fandoms all at once, you basically lose your mind. I pretty much looked like a caffeinated minion most of this summer. I'm not joking.
>>> New Beginnings
I had to say goodbye to quite a few things and people this summer but it's all part of growing up, right? With endings come new beginnings. This summer definitely had it's ups and downs but I will never forget all the memories I made.
So tell me Anime Community friends, how was your summer?
