2021 has been a year of slow progress for me. I’m finally pursuing a B.A. in earnest, and in turn beginning to make the transition from writing for fun to maybe making a career of it.

It might not be terribly interesting unless as a small window into my psyche (these are, after all, merely personal favorites and not necessarily ‘the best’), especially if you haven’t seen the anime, but oh well.
