Finally got a way to plug headphones into my new phone today, so spent a bit more time playing project sekai + did some story chapters there. I don’t have to feel bad about reading these in bed with the volume super low at night anymore :laughing:

New grandmaster quest came out in old school runescape, which meant that most of my mental energy and time was elsewhere today. I’ve done really good so far this challenge though, so I don’t mind a slower day.

finally got back to tokyo toy box and yeah not sure i wanna keep going. i think part of the reason i’m struggling is that it’ll occasionally throw a bunch of akita-ben in there and it’s scrambling my brain a bit. just gotta get back in the rhythm with bravely default now and then i’m back on track for goals!

A slightly more substantial amount yesterday, although I’ve still been working flat out on stuff. I tried to get to 50% but fell asleep before that.

On the bright side, I have been getting more listening than is typical this week due to driving more than usual (and I’ve begun to be more comfortable with the fact that my comprehension is not very good when listening compared to reading).

Not much time to read on vacation! But I did read a chapter of Pokemon manga before bed. On vacation, some reading is better than no reading!

  • Chapter of ダン飯9. Feeling a bit better again. I think I’ve overloaded on difficult stuff this ‘session’ (feels weird not ‘completing’ anything for over two weeks) so will probably drop down a few levels of difficulty for my next casual read.

:bento: はなひらっ! +18k 46k VN

Today I was messing around with a bunch of textractor stuff, and then wanted to test the setup out for real on something that I’d already had working on my old workflow. This VN is just so nothing :laughing: It’s a 1/10 difficulty on jpdb and it’s been sitting on my taskbar for like a year. Don’t remember how far I was in it before either, so no idea how close to the end I am.

But, I want to finish it so I can remove it from the in-progress bar and make room for some new projects :laughing: It’s not bad enough or long enough to justify a DNF, and a few characters talk with enough spice to make it not completely trivial reading, but it’s just overbearingly moe, even for your resident 日常系 and 癒し系 enjoyer.

yeah i don’t see myself continuing tokyo toy box after this volume but i’ve started so i’ll finish. finally went back to bravely default too! still full of new words but i’m coping.

i love seeing renditions of internet forums

it’s people in an office using it complain about suda, a guy who’s just showed up

also i ordered the parasyte manga and got it in individual volumes (rather than a set) and forgot vol 4 :sob: this is what i get for doing it from two separate sites and not paying enough attention
