Hello, and welcome to Yamcha's Anime universe! Some of you may know me from visiting my Myotaku page (username: Yamchaa), but if you havent visited or dont know me, then thats cool too lol. Im a big anime fan and ive been one for as long as i can remember. I collect anime movies, magazines, figures, all things related to anime, and im proud to say that i have a pretty hefty and diverse anime collecion which is usually constantly growing, and with this new world i hope to make new friends and spread my knowledge of anime to whoever may need it ^_^
It looks like im finally able to fill you all in on what's been happening with me lately.
for starters, I must say that 2010 has been a pretty rough year for me. In January my car broke down and it wasnt totally repaired until the end of march. Between June & August there were some pretty heavy management changes at work, and with each new manager came different ways of doing things, and rivalries ensued. I managed to outlast their terms of employment and they currently work the day shift, while i am still on nights. In august i began putting my mind fulltime on getting an apartment by Christmas, so i put in an application at the apartments best suited for my finances and went on a wild goose chase all over town getting copies of my birth certificate, social Security card, paystubs from work, background checks, having papers notarized.
In August i also finally got the car switched over to my name, which meant getting my own insurance, license plates, stickers , etc. Two days before i got paid in the 2nd week of august, i got a speeding ticket, along with 4 other tickets since i didnt have insurance, stickers, etc. which resulted in a 728$ fine total. When i got paid, i got my insurance and stickers, etc. and the went to court, where i opted to take defensive driving so i wouldnt have to pay the speeding ticket. I still ended up with the 339$ insurance fine though, which i paid a few weeks later. On November 20th i took the Defensive Driving class and passed and mailed off to get a copy of my drivers record to show the judge as proof that i took the class and passed, so they wouldnt throw me in jail lol.
In between all of these random occurances, i managed to get approved for the apartment i applied for, paid my deposit and moved in on Halloween.
Since then, ive basically just been getting use to living here by myself and doing things differently. Ive also been trying to get things situated - like getting internet, etc.
Things have really calmed down the past couple of weeks though, which is good, and now i finally have internet again, so i wont be so bored all the time lol. Ive also been buying more anime at the Game Exchange store here in town, so my collection has been growing little by little again.
Well that pretty much sums up the past few months for me and what ive been doing, i plan on being online quite a bit whenever im home, so i thought id post and let you all know that im back online and still as strong as ever :)
I just got my High speed internet installed, so now im finally back online, after a couple of months of floundering in boredom lol. It's been a long 2 months, but im glad to be back, thats for sure.
On Halloween i moved into my new apartment, and since then ive only been able to get online with my cell phone, which was pretty limited, but i was able to manage until i was able to get everything situated so i could get high speed internet :)
I'll have to update more tommorrow, because its pretty late and i have to work tonight, so ill be sure to tell you all what ive been up to tommorrow :)
I was watching ESPN earlier today and a NIKE commercial came on for Lebron James, and near the end of it, one of my favorite actors Don Johnson popped up in it and gave him some advice. Im not all that much of a big fan of Lebron James or basketball in general, but the commercial was really cool to see, especially because Don Johnson was in it. he gave the best possible advice anyone could give thats for sure.
Here is a video of the commercial, Don Johnson pops in at 1:05 :)
Miami Vice is the best! lol
Well i hope you enjoy the plug for miami vice, hope to chat with you all soon :)
It's been forever since ive last posted, thats for sure, but rest assured, im still alive lol.
I noticed that even though i havent posted in a while, that my portfolio and worlds were still getting a great amount of visitors, and i started feeling guilty that i hadnt updated as much as i use to.
So here i am today, with a post to update everyone and let them know what ive been up to lately :)
I'll start with anime - The past few months ive bought quite a bit of anime, and the snowball started rolling about a month ago when i ordered the Mobile Suit Gundam 0083:Stardust Memory series box set online. Being able to watch the entire series for the first time in it's entirety was awe inspiring and a week later i ended up ordering the box sets for Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam online as well. since then ive also bought random anime dvds at the local Game Exchange store, such as dvd volumes of -
Gundam Wing (box set)
Gundam Wing Endless Waltz (movie)
Witch Hunter Robin (box set)
Heat Guy J
and a few others.
Ive mostly been watching the many Gundam related series i own, but this morning around 4am i started watching the School Rumble box set i bought last friday, and i must say that it has become one of my favorite series. Im on disc 2 right now and it is just getting better and better as it moves along. I'll certainly be making wallpapers for this series really soon.
here are thumbnails of some recent wallpapers ive made :)
Just when i think im washed up and out of ideas for wallpapers, i get lucky and make some pretty good ones that im proud of lol.
Both Articles turned out better than i originally hoped, so feel free to check them out if you are interested in learning more about each of those anime series :)
As for videogames, ive basically been playing random games. Ive mostly been buying older games for SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, and PS1 games for the most part. Ill have to dig them out and list them for you guys in another post sometime lol.
As for personal life stuff, I'm currently at the top of the waiting list for my own apartment (finally). so ive just been waiting for the call to let me know when i can move in lol. All of my anime and live action dvds have been boxed up for the past month or so, so all of the sheles in my room are bare at the moment, but dont worry - once i move, ill have my anime collection organized and back on my shelves in full force lol.
Besides Work and sleep, thats pretty much what ive been up to recently. Ive just been at a standstill since ive been waiting for the apartment to become available, but once i move in i'll be a bit more settled and organized thats for sure lol.
Well i better wrap this up before i end up typing up a novel lol. i just wanted to let you all know what ive been up to :) im going to get back to watching School Rumble lol, hope to chat with you all soon :)
