{Personal Life Update: Jan 2014}

*Mademoiselle Butterfly

Hey guys, I realize that once more I’ve ghosted, and I apologize.

This post may come off as maybe too personal for some but I’ve always seen this site as a great way to communicate with some friends I don’t see often. I also often have had little journal entries like this and they are interesting to look back on.

I’ve been gone since September but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading manga. Manga is still such an important part of my life. I’m almost up to 1000 books and I’m totally running out of space in my room!

One of the reasons I haven’t updated with new series is that I found a lot of the new series coming out were all yaoi. Yaoi is the opposite of my “thing” and it is extremely important to me to have a website dedicated to just shoujo and josei since it’s something that I always wanted. Trying to look for josei or shoujo I would always find yaoi and I just… don’t like it? So I’ve spent a lot of time re reading what I have and catching up on those on going series I reviewed three years ago. (It’s so much!)

Secondly my personal life has kinda of been from one extreme to the next since September. September 19th while I was at work my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack. All year he had been in and out of the hospital due to arthritis but never anything life threatening. He had just been to the hospital in the morning for some tests and passed away when he got home.

I’ve found it incredibly difficult to deal with since it was so sudden. It’s crazy to go from seeing someone every day and sharing your life with someone and just suddenly without warning they aren’t there anymore. It’s been four months but it’s crazy how there are still days I just want to stay home cry and sleep.

Once my dad passed away my life has been up and down with dealing with everything that comes after. Dealing with our house and family drama it’s crazy. The structure of my own life was shaken.

It’s difficult but I feel like I’m finally getting back to my “routine”.

I hope you all have had a better time since September! I’m hoping you enjoyed your holidays and I hope your New Years was amazing!
I want this year to be the best, I want to be more structured and organized.

I’m looking forward to a new year with you guys!
