Love out on the Ice

So, I finally got around to finishing this anime. It honestly took me longer than I would genuinely like to say, but I finished it. That show would be Yuri!!! on Ice. I think I should start by saying that I am not the biggest fan of figure skating. I recognize that a lot of skill goes into the sport, but it’s not that interesting to me. I suppose that would explain why the show really lagged for me. I really like the premise of the show, but it was just soooooo slow. It probably had a lot to do with having the exact same routine every single episode. There was nothing really different. Some of the thoughts during the skating routines were different, but not really. If you really like figure skating and really enjoy the competition scene, you might enjoy this a lot more than I did. I really enjoyed everything else about the anime, I just couldn’t get behind all the dancing. I’m sorry Panda.

Gaming for the Planet

To be clear, I am considering JouleBug a game because that is what it is called in the GooglePlay store. It’s more of a competition so close enough. What I love about this “game” is that you work with other people to save the planet. There are a variety of tasks you can “Buzz” to tell the world that you did an action to help the environment. There are also competitions every once in a while to show off you world-saving actions to everyone involved. My one problem is that it’s so hard to remember to buzz in, and that is of no fault of the app. At this point, I just do things and realize that hours later I could have buzzed something. Also, I’m a vegetarian, and there is an action that says go a day without meat, so I literally could get that one every day if I were to remember. But I do think this is a fun app to use if you wanted to compete with your friends over something.

You can get the app for Android and iOS. If you would like more information about the company, the website is here. There are also similar apps with slightly different functions from this company if you want to check them out.
