Looking back on how many seconds, hours, days, and months I spent on this site, it’s kind of overwhelming to think that I already reached my first year of blogging. It feels like it was only yesterday when I decided to put up Snippettee’s Blog, and just hours ago that I re-named it to Lemmas and Submodalities.
For some special reason, it’s fulfilling and gratifying to re-visit my old posts and comments of my readers. Every single article pops so many unforgettable anime screen shots and relives the young SnippetTee as she tries to verbalize her ideas. Now, as I write this post, lots of great memories are overflowing in my head that my fingers can’t even keep up with this sudden rush of thoughts.
Speaking of memories, how could I ever forget the friendship that was formed through writing? Up to now, I still find it fascinating how the 2D-world defied time and space to linked the people of the 3D world. Think about how Kyubey contracted us, how the Penguindrum and its apples made its viewers delved into the emblematic realm, how Yune and Alice’s cuteness brought its audience to Paris, and how Chihaya introduced us to Karuta… these are so mesmerizing and it’s so lovely how all of those feelings and ideas are now scribed in history. All the short conversations and debates that this humble blog hosted will be surely forever cherished.
I don’t know for how long I’m going to blog… Certainly, breaking the old habits is going to be difficult that’s why I try not to think about it. But I guess as long as time permits, I will certainly continue to watch and write something about anime. I really am hoping optimistically to reach my second year because I’m not willing to give up the word “fun” yet.
So before I end this post, I would like to express my gratitude to all the readers, visitors and commenters of this blog. Sometimes I worry that I may sound too formal and might be pushing my ideas too hard, because most of the time the discussions always go beyond the anime—whether it’s philosophical or personal. But that being said, I really am grateful to be known and be inspired by you guys. Words can never express how thankful I am.
