Plans for 2018

Plans for 2018

Just a few thoughts that I want to put out there. In any case, I might have jinxed it already. The idea to keep these to myself didn’t sit well with me – since I did the opposite once and it ended poorly.

First, I’d like to keep up with the blog like I did the previous year. Just the simple desire to keep up the writing.

After that is to dedicate some time for my pet projects like the Dormitory Love series and some fan translation stuff that I have left on hold as I learned the ropes of being a freelance translator. I’d like to see more progress on this front in 2018.

Next, read more romance novels and write about them (this will be on my Tumblr) – who knows, I might just move it all here (if I can sound intelligible). And to find more lovely authors.

Better time management and also help myself to a better frame of mind. I’m having trouble with these since New Year’s Eve (ouch) and it’s just bringing me to my knees (awkward laughs)

I have a lot of stuff waiting for me to read, listen and play too… and will get to that. (How could I face my backlog and new releases otherwise?)

A group play(?) of Bocchi x Musume (Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome) with my friends is also in the cards and I’m really looking forward to that.

Also, I want to work on some self-improvement like learning a new language (I’m looking at you, Italian course on edX), for starters.

The Lunar New Year is coming soon and I’m pretty excited xD

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

It’s been quite a year and I want to thank everyone who has visited and/or commented on my posts.

I came up with a tactic this year by trying to lower the number of drafts by revisiting them and deciding whether I want to go ahead with it or not.

It has always been a problem for me to, in a sense, keep updating this blog. The part where I come up with ideas and then decide whether I made enough sense or simply ranting. Feels, I have aplenty but verbalising them is where I don’t do really well.

This year saw me getting acquainted with a few new things like Spotify, the amazing romance novel community on Tumblr and iflix, an old fave that I revisited thanks to the increased speed (but dangling wires) by my ISP.

Been watching The Mentalist and I LOVE SIMON BAKER AND ROBIN TUNNEY. Totally unrelated to my blog, yes but really enjoy watching it☆

Gaming has been a bit quiet since my last fully-completed game, 7’scarlet and Cinderella Phenomenon (need to replay it to jog my memories for my post). With the new Corda 2ff release on Vita, I’m gonna look forward to getting it sometime later.

Manga-wise, I’ve just finished reading Tendou-ke Monogatari vol.4 and WHAT A RIDE. The fifth volume is scheduled to release in Autumn 2018. Talk about a long time away. Gotta send the author my love 💕

And finally, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!🎄🎇

And thank you for the high volume of hits yesterday! You guys made it the day with the highest views on my blog! ✨✨🎉

Finally got around buying the 3rd volume of Tendou-ke and I’m so glad that it came with the obi (the wrap around the book jacket). I like how the black and muted gold colour goes together. The lines used on them are also dialogues from respective volumes.
