Musings — All The Things

I’ve been absent–both in presence and in mind–lately. This post will hopefully shed some light on where I’ve been lately and what I’ll be doing. As usual, bullets incoming to allow for a measure of brevity.

  • No time…!
    • Dad got job recently
      • First time since I was born
      • He has no vehicle
        • I have vehicle, I need vehicle
          • I drive him, ~2 hrs each day total (30 min x4: there, back, there, back)
      • He’s getting vehicle very, very soon
        • Getting my 2 hrs/day back
        • Still have to drive his girlfriend’s kids to/from school (1.5 hrs/day)
          • Reasons I can’t divulge
          • Will be ‘fixed’ in about 2 months
    • Issues with college classes (16 units, required by the EOP program I transferred in through)
      • Worst I’ve done in a semester, ever
      • #feelsbadman
      • No time to do homework even
  • “Figured out” (read as: always knew) I need to continue translating to actually pay rent
    • Making time for it has been… well, it’s been something (read as: nonexistent)
    • Going to translate despite not having time
      • Important: No ICO/GCR until end of semester.
        • Yes, I know I should feel like shit about this. Yes, I feel like shit about this. Just writing this part is making my stomach churn.
          • MG/LDM are simply easier to translate. By far, even. 2-3 times faster on a per-word basis…
        • When winter break hits, so shall a dam of chapters overflow
          • Going to try to get 7 chapters out this week though!
  • Important: (For non-NovelUpdate readers) Got e-mail from the ad plugin devs
    • They said it’s fixed
    • It’s not fixed (WordPress not updating to the newest release grah)
    • Disabling plugin, will figure out wtf later
  • Been sick af the past week
    • No barfing, thankfully
    • Going through 2nd week of midterms with a fever… f*ck
      • 68% on one of my midterms, 49% in another class (on a presentation worth as much as a midterm)
        • Neither teacher cared about my fever, pointing to how the syllabus explicitly stated injury (stuck in hospital) or death in the family as the only reasons for postponing them

… Yeah.

Thanks for the patience, sorry for my everything, and hope you’ve all had a good past few weeks.

    WTF Teachers… (Hopefully they do the rest of their job well)

  2. i see, so it was because of the plug in… oh well its ok ^_^ we can just manually look for it.. (kinda got lost on which chap i was on but i’ll look for it ahaha)
    do what you have to do ziru, we’ll just be here waiting for you to summon your chapters patiently..

  3. Damn, life is getting pretty rough for you. Hang in there! Grades > Chapters. Don’t sweat it, cause we’ll all still be here probably binge reading your mass releases during winter break : D

  4. “49% in another class (on a presentation worth as much as a midterm)”
    I know that feel.
    Except for me it was a 45% on a exam
    So uh… You’re doing better than me? 🙂

    Don’t worry so much about getting us chapters if you need to fix your grades/study. I find that I end up working on other stuff much slower and getting more distracted if I’m worried about too many things

  5. I’m guessing Forsaken Hero is also in the pool with the ‘not gonna be translated anytime soon’ category? Regardless, hope you manage to find time to actually rest and do your homework once your dad gets his car.

    1. Mentioned a while back that I’m waiting for its incoming LN release to translate it. More info when the time comes
