Goodbye, weekend.

16 Oct

Just finishing up with stuff before bed, Billie Holliday singing in the backrgound. The problem with me is I should have done the work earlier today instead of after dinner. The same for listening to music. It gives me such a pleasant feeling, no matter how bittersweet the song is, that I just want to keep the music playing. But of course I can’t do that: tomorrow is the start of another week, and tomorrow is particularly busy. Tomorrow! I’ll give it my all… tomorrow!  

I haven’t been keeping up with bullet journalling lately. Yes, I did attempt it last term, and it at least helped me be mindful of tasks and goals, but I often fall behind when there is a disruption (such as a holiday) or when I got so much work (such as the start of last week). So yeah, gotta make time for it again tomorrow. It would be a shame to not put all those Muji stationeries and supplies I splurged on while in Singapore. Lol. 

Also, I ordered a couple of books from bookdepository.co.uk. I’m a sucker for email promotions: 5% off. I’m expecting The Trick is to Keep Breathing by Janice Galloway and Asano Inio’s A Girl on the Shore (Girl by the Sea when it first came out as a scanlation) in a few weeks. Early birthday treat, I guess.

Love is always like an illusion

I finished typesetting¬†Moteki chapter 4 today. Finally! It took me a week to get it done. Or more like, two or three days, since I was always procrastinating. Anyway, what I like about typesetting mango I actually follow is that I get to read it ahead of the releases (duh!) and that makes me work faster. Lol. Well, I haven’t been as productive as that time before I started working (IRL) again, but I hope to manage my time and tame that relentless beast called laziness (hah!) and be efficient irl and scanlation-wise.

Right.

>_<

Anyway, I like where this story is going. I’m also pretty excited since chapter 13 has a GOING STEADY song and chapter 29 has NUMBER GIRL. I hope I’m still on board when that rolls around. Number Girl; Trampoline Girl, at that! One of my favorite songs from my favorite band! <Insert crazy fangirl monologue here.>Music x manga = death by nosebleed.

Sigh.

Monday’s almost here. Give it a big hug.

Lazy Sunday

Went to Kino in Plaza Senayan yesterday. Here’s the loot:

Shame that the other mango volumes on my wish list weren’t available. Maybe on another day. ;)

Been doing nothing all weekend, which is, surprisingly, something unusual. I often squeeze in some work, but today, I’ve just been reading and sleeping. I’m already on holiday mode, that’s why. I still have three more work days before that two-week holiday break, but yeah, let it breeze through without incident. I’ll give it my all… Tomorrow.

Still working on the typeset for Umimachi Diary chapter 2. I don’t have a study table yet so I’m working in the living room. The table is a bit low so it’s bad on this old lady’s back. Lol. Looks like this is gonna have to wait some more…
