About pumpkincrash

Welcome to my site and I hope you’re gonna stay for a while. Here a few things about this site you might be interested in…or not.

Why pumpkincrash?

Because I like the English word pumpkinpumpkin pumpkin pumpkin. I don’t actually like the color orange but hey, why not?

Who am I?

(this paragraph is the same as written on the front page of this website)

I am a 20-something student and IT-employee who likes her job and just tries to get a degree for the degree, not because she’s actually gonna do anything with it (it’s not an IT related subject).

I collect everything with owls and have a big fluffy elephant plushie in my bed. My favourite movies are Aladdin (2019) and Ready Player One and my guilty pleasure song I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys. I’m a K-Pop fan and my future traveling goals include Australia, New York, Canada, Thailand and South Korea. As you can probably figure from that, I’m not from any of these places. I’m from Europe.
I speak English and German pretty fluently, I can understand some French and Spanish and I’m currently learning Korean.

What is this site about?

I mostly write about K-Pop, Boys Love TV shows, some Manga and Anime stuff and my movie and TV fascinations. Sometimes I post Best-Off Lists, sometimes just reviews and a lot of times recommendations.

How long does it take for me to answer comments?

Until now it took me quite some time, mainly because I wasn’t on this site much and I didn’t really know what to write about but I’m trying my best to better myself to a reply time of 2-3 days.

Is it possible to contact me any other way?

Of course, I have a phone, a mobile phone, a Whatsapp, a Youtube account, an Instagram, an email. I just won’t tell you what they are.

You have an idea for a post or want to give me a suggestion for future post topics?

Just write it into the comments and tell me and I’ll see what I can do.

 

Welcome to my new Website

Welcome, welcome! I just recently returned to my page, after being away for…some months. I haven’t written anything in that time, honestly I was just lazy and had writer’s block I guess. I was busy.

But now I revamped the website and put everything in a new order and re-designed a lot. I kind of like it like this even though I did not in the beginning. Well, I hope you like it too.

What is new?

  • There is a featured area! The newest posts and some updated versions of old posts will be posted there

  • I removed the overall “All posts” section. I will now update the posts per menu items and with the featured area. You can also find posts by clicking onto the Corner sections in general

  • I put everything in order. There is a corner for everything: a general “My favourites” section, a BL corner, an area about Manga and Anime, a K-Pop corner, a corner for movie and film stuff and a section for everything regarding TV shows.
  • I also created a menu for personal stuff which is on top of the page below the header image

 

In general it’s just a little bit more in order and not just an unending series of posts. If you want something specific but cannot find it, please tell me, so I can help – just post it under any post 😀

 

I hope you enjoy the new look. Of course, you can still find all the posts with the search button of the site ^.^

I’m totally unreliable #lifeinanutshell

I’m not sure whether to say sorry or whether to just say “I have a life. Suck it” because I did kinda promise in a previous post I’d continue writing and publishing… Well I’m an ass I guess since I did neither since then.

I mean I did a lot of things since then:

  • Lose 5 kilos with a lot of work
  • Visit a fitness studio for the first time
  • Get the special bonus card at my local cinema
  • Buy myself stuff I don’t need
  • Buy myself some stuff I do need
  • Gain 6 kilos with a lot less work than I would’ve liked
  • Celebrate Christmas joyfully
  • Celebrate my birthday happily
  • Take a 4 week vacation from work
  • Start writing my university paper
  • Clean out my room
  • Get new work colleagues
  • Celebrate my one year anniversary at my work place
  • Go to a dance/night club for the first time and only return at 4:30 in the morning
  • Start ice-skating again
  • Buy myself a Korean book and not read it

You see I did a lot of stuff and these are just the things I can remember. Okay, but let’s just get to the point here:

I’m back and hopefully this time for real. I’m currently revamping the site – although it should be finished when I release this post but who knows with my scheduling skills. So, I’m not trying to better myself, I’m just tying to be honest here. You won’t get regular from me. Not until I’m paid to do this. Which I am not. YES, I’m a very materialistic person, I need to pay bills too you know.

So stay with me and please be patient. I can only tell you what I am working on, which currently is:

  • a new edition of the CineMania series for 2019, so you know what to expect, what to watch and what to blatantly ignore
  • part III of the BL manga recommendations which I promised months ago – I DO already have the recommendations, I just haven’t added much else
  • a recommendations post for BL shows (Thai etc) for 2019, since so many of you liked the last one
  • a review for 2018 Cinema

I’m working on all of that but no real idea when it’s finished. Currently my plan would be to release one post per week at least and the 2019 recommendation should be out by the end or middle of January, so let’s see.

Wish me luck, I will do my best, but everyone who has been reading my posts so far, knows, I’m highly unreliable regarding everything schedule-y – I know that’s not a word

 

Sorry, but I have a life, so do you.
