I’m not done. Not yet.

She needs something better to brush her teeth. I’ve got just the right thing.

I’ve disappeared once again, but there’s a good reason. No, there isn’t, but still… The thing is, this past season I had 5 translation projects to work on, so I was basically dealing with few animes for a long time + going back and forth on three different languages. By the end of a script, I was already tired of anime and just wanted to do anything else. This explains my DotA2 profile and its hundreds of hours played in so little time.

But now that summer season is finally sadly over, I’ll probably go back to dealing with two or three projects a week and maybe, just maybe there will be days when writing won’t be a burden. Fuck, I didn’t even watch everything I wanted. Seriously, my intention was something around 15 shows, but I’ve been following only 4. At least you can expect a few reviews coming soon™.

I’m improving… I think.

There is no way I’m missing the second season of Yuru Yuri.

There are a lot of games waiting on my Steam’s library to be played, lots of assignments to be done, and the only decent musical event in 365 days going on right now… Yet, today I spent most part of my time doing things to make this blog better: reorganizing widgets on the sidebar, creating a Facebook page, and designing a banner.

“Did you do that banner? It looks like shit!” Yeah, I know, this was the first time I have ever tried doing “advanced” picture editing. A few hours ago, I didn’t even know how to work with layers and vectors, and selections still confused me a little bit. But hey, creating the banner wasn’t the only thing I did today, the gif image on my previous post about Hyouka was also created using the same tools. By the way, it was GIMP 2.

I don’t want to bother with licenses right now, and since I am no pro, a free tool like GIMP is good enough for me. I’ll keep the improvements coming, next on the line is tagging and categorizing properly my posts, creating a page with a full index of animes I’ve ever mentioned here and, of course, a shiny background.

Not about anime

GIF not related.

I’m thinking about how I can make this blog look better without spending a single penny on it. First because I’m poor, second because I don’t know anything about CSS styling and shit, although I am a computer guy and I believe I can learn it quite fast. But I don’t want to, at least not now.

Anyway, there are four things I need to work on improvements here. Categorization, background, header and sidebar. Here is what I am doing for the next few days… Continue reading
