Recommendations to Follow

5 days until Camp NaNoWriMo opens for the July test month. I’m very excited and can’t wait to participate. Yay!

But, since I’m trying not to write until it starts, so that I can try to meet my goal of 50,000 words in July, I am starting a comic tonight. Actually, it will be a fanfic comic. I’ve had this story in mind for a while now and I can’t wait to finally start. I may just do story boards tonight and start actual pages tomorrow. I’m not sure, yet. I’ll see what happens when I start.

I finally finished “Playful Kiss” today. Quite a cute series. Again, if you’re into Korean dramadies, I definitely want to suggest that you enjoy this one, too! You can find it on Netflix!

I have so many things on my Netflix list that I want to watch. Lately, I’ve been trying to watch all of the documentaries I have saved. I really like history and enjoy learning about it. So far, I’ve watched segments on King Arthur, Abraham Lincoln, Viking Swords (mostly the Ulfberht), Alexander the Great, Chatsworth, and Marco Polo. I hope to watch many more. I think learning about the past is a good way of looking at things from different points of view, especially when you read the same topic recorded from different countries. It’s always interesting!

…this being said, I must admit that I am a big fan of the anime and manga: “Hetalia”. It combines two of my favorite things: anime and history. Yay!

For the record, each episode is about 5 minutes long and it’s an anime/manga that has personified the countries of the world. The above character who is overly excited is America. He’s goofy and one of the younger countries, supposedly portrayed in his mid-twenties. Overall, for history/anime nerds, I suggest this show, also.

Look for my words again soon!

A Variety of Shows

Currently, Naruto is playing on Netflix while I type. I’m only on the first season at the moment, though I have watched this season before, years back. I’m re-watching to refresh my memory a bit before skipping back to where I had been. My younger brother watches with me, but he’s gotten ahead of me to Season 2, watching Naruto episodes while I was watching my Korean shows. Hah, speaking of which, I just finished “Coffee Prince” last night. I will take a small break from these shows to catch up on the movies that I have been collecting onto my List. My tastes range from French movies and shows like “Populaire” (as I’m a French minor, it’s good for audio comprehension, and I highly recommend this particular movie), to “Daddy Long Legs” with Frank Sinatra (I love Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby! -insert heartfelt sigh here-), to anime shows like “Ouran High School Host Club” and “My Bride is a Mermaid”, to documentaries like “Myths in the Museum”, “Egypt”, and “Spy in the Den” animal shows. Plus, I enjoy historical fictions, like “Downton Abbey”, “TURN: Washington’s Spies”, and so on. All in all, I enjoy a variety of show themes and genres, except Horror and Suspense. Oh, and I absolutely am in love with the reboot of BBC’s “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock”!

I want to say more, but I’m not sure what else to type at the moment. Please give me some time. I’ll post again. Look for my words soon!
