I’m not dead yet, minna-san!!
My first semester has come and gone since my last update, and all I can say is that I survived… with amazing results! I was hoping to get to posting more often during the winter break, but unfortunately, I had some stuff to take care of. Apart from having some things to get done that I had to put on hold during the semester, I’ve also gotten fed up with my current part-time job and I have been looking for another. It’s a long story, but I had to remove a class I was going to take this Spring semester, altering my school schedule to fit their needs, among other things. I’m also two years overdue for a raise.
Needless to say, I’ve been a little busy with looking for a new job for me while I’m in school, one that cares about me and my education. I truly envy these kids that can go to college full-time without having to also work. You lucky little shi- dumplings! It’s about time for a change of pace anyway, as if you are working somewhere, be it part-time or full-time, and you have yet to get even a small raise… it’s time to move on.
Aside from the job hunting, my new semester begins as of next Monday. Not sure if I will have more or less time this semester. Thanks to my current job, I’m only taking a single class with writing, and I’m pretty sure my other two classes are going to be centered on drawing.
Given my love for the Houshin Engi series and the fact that we have 10 days left until the new Houshin Engi anime airs, you all know what this calls for, right? A daily countdown! As of today, I will be translating a character song from the original anime each day for the countdown. Honestly, I’ve translated most already… but still, I’ll be posting one a day.
I’m a little saddened though by the fact that the anime will only be 23 episodes and is supposed to cover up to the Sennin War arc. That’s just not enough to properly adapt the manga, meaning a lot may end up changed and/or left out. We shall see, but more Houshin Engi in general is always welcome to me.
That rounds up this week’s update. As always minna-san, stay frosty. ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪♬
