@Moya - Are you translating for fun, practice, dollars? Either way, good luck with all those pages.

@Sathael - Yikes! Burns are painful! Best of luck with your goals this much, looks like you've got a fair bit on your plate!

179 text bubbles to translate for the longest comic (31 pages), so that's my goal for today! Also planning to set up the text files for the remaining translation pages.

Sathael: Ooh, burns are nasty. Hope it heals quick! You've got some solid goals for the month, though. 3nodding Best wishes for a speedy recovery and all!

Whimsi: Stellar goals! Looking forward to the links throughout the month, too!

PMS: That's how it is. Hope you catch up on sleep soon!

Mors: Fun and practice--I dearly miss using my Japanese abilities. I'm pretty much fluent, but I sure won't be if I keep not using it! If I could translate for money, though, that'd be amazing.

I'll be using this as a kick in the a** to start writing again. (: Now that my son is a bit bigger, (8 months) I feel like I can get some writing in when he's on the floor playing and when he's sleeping.
@ Morsuaile and Moya of the Mist: Thank you, it doesn't hurt much today since I spent six hours last night with my hand in cold water. Either way, I can type better now.

And good luck with your goals!

Sunsets: All the best of luck! We'll be cheering for you the whole way.

Sathael: You can call me Moya or Morgan, haha. Less of a mouthful (handful?), especially with burnt fingers. And I'm very glad to hear that your hand is doing better!

Sunsets: Good luck! =D

Moya: I hope so, too. I have a 3,500 word research essay due Thursday and I just can't focus on it. The words are all fuzzy. emotion_facepalm And I won't get to work on it tomorrow because a friend of mine (who graduated last year and who I used to live with) is coming to stay and we're having a Christmas party. <3 But obviously that's bad for productivity, haha.

Also, Sathael, burns suck! I burned my arm last week, though luckily it's not tender any more. It just snags on my clothing now and then. >_>

PMS: Hmm. I hope that the words stop being so fuzzy! emotion_hug Maybe some orange juice would help? (I don't drink caffeine, but citrus usually wakes me up.)

Moya- Then I better stay current with my goals.

Sunsets- Hello and good luck.

Progress: I have gotten today's 365 challenge done. I will try to get a few prompts on the BAFC done before the TGIO party.

@Moya - Well I hear translation for for 20 cents per words, so if you ever get the chance!

Good luck Sunsets, welcome to the thread!

@PMS - Ugh, I also have a research paper I should be doing. It's another lame subject though so it's painfully dull. emo But we will be triumphant!

I'm leaving the apartment now for the good of all man kind emotion_donotwant By which I mean my stomach. Groceries are needed for continued survival.

Moya: I don't have any, and I don't really feel up to going out. Ugh. X3 I'm just going to try and power through. I have about 2 hours before my friend arrives.

Edit: Good luck with your paper, Morse! Papers suck. emo

Okay, 87 bubbles to translate for the second project. The third one is four pages of text, which is, uh, not quite what I expected them to send me when they said a few bits and pieces from an art book. I'll decide what to do about that one a bit later. For now, though, 179+87=266 bubbles to translate. Hoo, boy. The setup is the worst part of all that, though, and at least I'm through with that! (I have 12 pages of "Page X, Panel Y, Bubble Z" stuff set up so that I can fill it in.)

Whimsi: Great job getting through the challenge! whee I'll be looking forward to your updates!

Enchantress: Awww, it's so sweet of you to include me in your goals! emotion_kirakira Don't worry about little ol' me, though, okay? Good luck with everything you have to do!

Mors: I'm just such a pushover. I love translating too much.
"Is this a paying gig?"
"No, we're a fan volunteer project."
"What are you scanlating?"
"A doujin of [one of my favorite but seldom drawn OTPs]."
"...Okay, I'll do it for free."

Oh well! Maybe I'll find paying work someday. It's the same thing with my covers--no one can pay me for them, so I keep making them for free. Ah well.

PMS: Salty stuff is my usual backup... Got any crackers/cheese? Tortilla chips that could be made into nachos?

Moya: I don't even think I do. Holy cow. XD I have nothing! I should buy food...
Moya of the Mist's avatar

Obsessive Loiterer

PMS: gonk I wish I could email you food. I could dump some brownies and nachos through the internet tubes in such a case. Oh, oh, or is it possible for me to order you pizza if I'm in another country? rofl You could freeze the leftovers, hahaha.

Ignoring the fact that I don't even have the money to order myself pizza...
