Of Birthdays, Mother’s Day, and OWLS May Blog Tour Schedule

Hey guys! So we are now in May eherm the BEST month of the whole year. I take no arguments over this fact


Why is it the best month ever? Because I get to eat cake three times

I know, it’s amazing isn’t it. It’s the only month I can eat so many cakes and not get the whole ‘you’re eating too much junk’ talk. You see in May my family has 2 birthdays and then Mother’s Day! I’ll be making cheesecake and ordering some other kind of ‘real’ cake for the celebrations (oh snap, that mean’s it’s 6 cakes!!)

Trying to fit that into the next OWLS Blog Tour, I made certain to take May 10th as my post day. I know that in America the day for Mother’s Day changes (is it like the second Sunday or something?) but in my family, we always celebrate on May 10th, regardless of it being a weekend or weekday. Not only do I prefer it because it’s so easy to remember, but because that’s what my mom grew up knowing (and therefore me too)


And for this month’s OWLS Blog Tour, our topic will be Strength:

“Your greatest weakness can become your greatest strength.”

For this tour, we will be exploring anime characters that have overcome adversity due to a personal insecurity or physical weakness. It is these type of characters that many anime fans may identify as role models because fans are able to feel empathetic towards these characters’ struggles and insecurities.

There’s one type of strength that wasn’t included into this prompt and that’s one I wanted to incorporate into my post, but maybe I’ll do a separate post about that later. Either way, I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with this month’s topic than I did the previous, but now my dilemma is figuring out what series to talk about! (Lol)

Not a lot of members signed up for this month (compared to others) but we’ll still have a lot of great posts to read from! Since these will be in-depth posts, they will have spoilers. And yup I am late with this post because we’ve already got our first May post up from Matt ^^

    • yup, i’ve got like 10 kids at home. i feel like i haven’t eaten cheesecake since last year around this time but i made one in march for my mom’s birthday 😛

      well they’re vague so that we can all have something different to contribute. i think it would be a bit boring if we all had stricter guidelines and our posts sounded almost the same xD have you read our previous posts?
