There’s something about anime in the middle of the night

It’s twenty past midnight and I can’t sleep. I haven’t been feeling too well lately, to be perfectly honest. So to make myself feel better, I went to the kitchen and ate some carbohydrates (lovely white bread!!). Then I came back upstairs and watched a few minutes of anime on my iPad.

My understanding of Japanese is still minimal at best, and I didn’t have subtitles. But now the sound of the language is a bit like an old blanket or a teddy bear – comforting, almost in an ineffable way. Anyway, it has made me feel good enough to write this short post on my sadly-neglected blog. Life; I tell ya. Never easy, is it. (I actually wrote something last week and only just found out it never got published, something I still haven’t figured out how to achieve.)

Well, I guess I’m off to attempt to sleep again. おやすみなさい。
