hi hi!

I'm Amanda.  I've been blogging since 2015.

I like coffee, good stories, veggies, the uncanny, cute stuff, pondering things entirely too much, and internet culture.

I started ORIONMISSING in November 2020 to create a space to post authentically, beyond just reviewing. If you're coming here from my old site, nerdificationreviews, thanks for sticking with me!!

I hope you like it here ^.^

On Stories...

Books, Manga, Comics, Anime, KDrama, Film..


I look for character driven, quirky, slice of life, fiction.  


Satirical social commentary.


An appreciation for the natural world, or a strong sense of place.  


& tales about feeling alienated from society, while participating in it.


I hope you'll find some new favorites here!


Photo Diary

Inspired by ordinary, slowed down, whatsoever happens, daily life. I enjoy curating this photo diary. Unlike on social media, these images don't need to be resized, or justified, or captioned. They're just the pictures I like best.  Would recommend you create a photo diary, whether private, or public.


May include:

  • cafe culture

  • vegetarian food

  • cute things 

  • reads/watching

  • sky

  • cityscapes

  • an unforgivable overuse of the peace sign
