Vampire Knight

Well well. I went on an anime binge.  Well, it’s still in progress actually.  The latest anime I was able to watch is Vampire Knight.  It was super cliche, but man I couldn’t stop watching.  Since the story revolves around vampires, of course there is tons of melodrama. I couldn’t have it any other way.

The story revolves around a love triangle.  Hehe, who didn’t see this coming? The main characters all attend a school solely created for the purposes of bringing together human and vampire students to live and go to school peacefully.

Yuki Cross is the main female protagonist who is the adopted daughter of the headmaster and guardian of the school.  Yuki and Zero Kiryu keep the peace between the vampires students and the regular human students. Unfortunaly, Zero has been suffering with a dark secret.  Kaname Kuran on the other hand is the pure blood dorm leader of the vampires.  He is sophisticated, regal and secretive as well, and of courseYuki is in love with…or is she in love with Zero?

This anime was fun to watch.  Mostly because it keeps with the dark melodrama associated with vampires that I have grown to love.  It has all the self loathing, unhappy, angry and revenge filled characters that you expect.  Along with the prideful aristocratic vampires you also expect.

However, I have to admit I did not like the animation.  I am not a fan of anime with such huge eyes as this show.  I also did not like Yuki as the main character.  She always needed to be rescued and was crying 80% of the time.  I would prefer a stronger female lead.  The good news is that it has plenty of other cool characters with different powers and personalities.  If only the series was longer so they could have developed them more.

The character’s backgrounds are slowly revealed when necessary, and Kaname’s plan is not fully unraveled until season 2.  So the story stays interesting to till the end.  Depending on which camp you are rooting for, you may or may not be happy with the ending if at all.  Either way, I was sorta satisfied with it.  BUT!

*****SPOILER ALERT! ********

I did not like the whole incestuous vampire lineage thing that happens.  I understand it was common for royalty and to do this through out history in real life.  But it still is kinda gross.  Anyways, that’s my main gripe.

However, if your into vampires or romance you will enjoy the show.  Watch it!  It’s available on Netflix.

Running Away

I got an email the other day telling me that I need to renew my domain name.  That means this blog has been up for yet another year.  What have I learned? NOTHING!

Anyways, I am writing because I get gloomy sometimes.  It sorta helps me write down my thoughts.  Lately, whenever I get this way…I feel like running away.  Do you remember thinking about running away when you were little? I mostly remember having those thoughts when my family moved from Maryland to Florida.  What a change that was.  At first I was excited that we were moving.  Moving was always kind of an adventure when I was little.  My dad would get a new job, and we would pack up our things.  There would be a new house, a new room, a new neighborhood to explore.  But overall moving is not something you want to do that often when you are young. It has been something I have learned the hard way.

It was going to be the 4th elementary school where I was the new girl. I had no friends again.  My new school was Sweetwater Elementary.  It was definitely a downgrade from my old school.  The kids just didn’t seem too bright and they just weren’t as nice as my old classmates.  Even the teachers were unlikable. I remember thinking almost everyday that one day we would move back to Maryland.  Eventually, I realized that wouldn’t happen.  I was depressed to the point I actually thought middle school would be my savior. Middle school?  What a joke, but that’s a story for another day.

Apparently, there is no such thing as recess in these crappy Dade schools.  Ladies and gentleman your kids are missing out!  Also, P.E, what the heck is that?  You mean gym?  You know, that class we had in an actual gym… yeah that was not 100% pure torture like PE is here.  Also, PE is not a substitute for recess.  Recess was fun, we played on the jungle gym, kick ball and other fun games after lunch.  Maybe your kids might like that sorta thing?  In conclusion, Sweetwater Elementary sucked, College Gardens Elementary ruled 😛

Now I’m an adult and have yet to plant my feet down somewhere stable.  Living in Miami requires a ridiculously good job, a roommate or a significant other to share your expenses with.  Cut a girl some slack.  I don’t think I will live here past March so that has me thinking what I will do with myself.  I would like to ditch this city.  But I’m a big chicken.  A change is definitely needed.  What’s stopping me anyways?  Other people seem to do it. But I notice they have some sort of support or friends in other places.Well it is in my experience that if you don’t make changes, it will be forced upon you by something or someone.  And it may not be what you have been wanting.  Soooo…let’s see what happens.  There are already forces upon me.  Maybe I will talk about them some other day.  Anyways, thanks for reading.  🙂  Leave comments.  Leave experiences.  Say hello.  Thanks!
