Hello stalkers and beloved readers, I didn't want people thinking I disappeared again. I have many things to deal with in irl. I might not be churning translations as regularly as I wanted due to immense changes to my work life.

You can read my rant or skip it entirely:
A new school year started in Japan. My school's had teachers come and go. For some inane reason teachers in Japan are rotated every few years within their state/prefecture. This is very disruptive to students and teachers. Anyhow, the new teachers I have to work with are a completely mixed bag. Out of the six teachers I work with, three are new. None has experience teaching at high school level. One has worked in a cram school for 18 years and is completely out of touch with more modern teaching strategies, another only taught young children prior and lastly a fresh graduate with bad grammar and heavily accented English (the students are struggling to understand). I am walking these teachers through everything and there are many screws loose! One completely forgot we had class today...luckily I managed to save him from getting his ass whooped.

In Japan, schools make teachers take up management or coaching of clubs/teams up to three hours a day. Teachers are also expected to attend all tournaments even if they are on weekends or national holidays. I really don't like this system because teachers arrive to work at 7:30 AM and leave at 7 or 8 PM. Teachers already have so  many things to deal with at senior high school level!  Teachers that don't even know how to play a certain sport is often assigned to it. Worst was when three teachers were assigned to music club but none could even play an instrument.  My former workmate was the coach for our female soft tennis team. They are pretty highly ranked in Japan. Now that she is gone the team didn't get a replacement coach. The male team coach has cut down their training hours because he is lazy. He wanted to lock up earlier so he can head home quicker. As a favor to my former co-worker I volunteered to stay behind each day to supervise.

My parents are also coming to Japan in ten days time, they will be staying for three weeks. I have been busy cleaning my place so they won't think I live like a savage. Then there is organizing their schedule...busy, busy, busy! Additionally, I am heading home for good come August so I'm starting my packing process...

Thanks for reading, I hope you are well and safe.

Hi guys! Hope you are all well. This time I shall grace you with an amusing childhood memory.

You lost your what!?
When I was a young kid circa 7 year old, my father would wake up in the middle of the night to escort me to the toilet. This was to stop me from wetting my bed. One night, I remember crying when my dad took me out to the hallway. So he asked me what was wrong. I told him ‘Daddy I lost my nipple!’ and I can’t recall my dad’s face but I’m pretty sure he had to force himself not to laugh. I told him I was touching it and it ‘disappeared’ – or more precise I couldn’t feel it anymore. So he guaranteed it was still there, lifted my top and showed me. I was adamant it wasn’t there so he pointed to it. Much later in my life I learned about heat expansion…

Hello again!
If you haven't seen my previous post [HERE]. It is a kickstarter program to fund a manga to teach vulnerable youth about human trafficking! Even if you aren't able to donate please help promote it! They have nearly reached their goal!

Hi guys, not a translation post.

I believed it was important to get the word out to you guys.

My friend Emoto Yusaku is the artist of this wonderful cause. I met him when we both went to the same orphanage to volunteer. This guys has a big heart and dedicates a lot of time to the project even though he isn't a professional artist.

He works on creating manga that focus on educating youth about human trafficking. These mini booklets are then distributed for free to youth which are the most vulnerable.

Please spare a bit of time, even if you aren't able to donate, they'd appreciate any promotion!

I’m back…again? So soon…*receives suspicious looks*

So, I was thinking…that this chapter was the end of volume 2…so I thought…might as well! I am a bit mentally exhausted but I hope this makes your week!

Like volume one, I will be collating volume 2 and making a pdf…sometime down the road. It will take a while with proofing my stuff etc.

Happy end of volume 2! See you in volume 3! Volume 3 is really good...it's probably Sooky's favorite volume...

Hello everyone,

I was away for a long time. Thank you for everyone’s concern. My absence was a conglomerate of many factors. Rest assured I am in good health. I had also been extremely bad at replying to messages. I apologise for causing concern. I’m going through a backlog of comments and messages. I really appreciate the care my readers give me and the consistent supportive comments.

I decided to pull myself out of this long hiatus because I am ready to translate on a regular basis again. *slow clap*

Yesterday, I did make a post which I promptly removed. I was really worried about how people would react. I believed everyone deserved more than just a memo – Sooky did her best to churn out a chapter!

Thank you for standing by me.
