Yesterday, I finished yet another anime series. BUT
I have to say that it was one of the most touching and heartwarming animes I’ve ever watched.
So touching that I don’t feel like reviewing it.
Yeah, I will just keep it safe in my memory as one of the absolute best animes I’ve watched, although I haven’t watched so much as to warrant a highlight reel.
It reminded of the movie What Maisie Knew. NOW IMAGINE HOW AWESOMELY AMAZING THAT ANIME WAS.
But in today’s news….
I went back to school as I’ve been asked to judge the finals of our Inter-house debate competition as well as help organize a debate tournament itself. And I said yes because these days, I’m pretty much stuck at home doing nothing except reading, watching a few movies, and watching heart-wrenching anime.
And then I met up some school friends for PIZZA (yes I capitalized pizza because no matter how decidedly non-italian it is in PizzaHut, I still love the pizza food section. Just not the pizzas sold at PizzaHut.) and the lunch/meet-up ended being quite fun even though it was just four guys and one girl.
And after that I came back home.
So things I got done today:
1. Agreed to judge people. (YASS!)
2. Agreed to help organize a massive debate competition almost entirely alone.
3. Read a very politically incendiary letter addressed to the former president of my country that basically called out his ‘crimes’.
4. Analysed the cultural differences between Australia and Sri Lanka for kicks.
5. Made and laughed at quite a few really disgusting jokes.
6. Ingested large and copious amounts of mass-produced, un-italian and unoriginal knock-off pizza along with lots and lots of unhealthy fizzy drinks. What can I say? I have a love/hate relationship with my body.
1. Apparently, I make very insightful comments about debaters.
2. Apparently, I can be trusted with organizing events.
3. When a new government bashes the old and brings up proofless charges against the former government so that they can feel secure in their seat, it works. Not saying that the former government of Sri Lanka was perfect. It had its flaws, major ones included but when former thugs and gangsters attach themselves to a new one so they escape punishment and foist all the blame on maybe innocent former ministers, it’s basically the same mistake the former government did. If you are confused at that, let me just say, Leopard and corrupt politicians don’t change their spots.
4. Sometimes, a food that you denounced as totally anti-humanity can end up being so tasty and so amazingly amazing, you kind of hate. But then again, you hated it in the first place. Which means I’m a hypocrite.
