IRC Literacy At Last [24 Mar 2005|09:34pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

I've just become a (barely) IRC literate along my path of hunting for doujinshi scans/scanlations, hehehe. Once I begin to get a little familiar to it, I find it's not that difficult to get enough knowledge about IRC to download the files I'm looking for. I won't be able to download too many things, though, with my 56k modem. Priority will be given to Death Note doujinshi, of course, and then those doujinshi from other favorite series.

*is addicted to doujinshi*

Translation Marathon [15 Feb 2005|07:24am]
[ mood | exhausted ]

*glances at a clock* I've just finished the latest translation job two hours before the deadline. This time around, I had to translate the 50-page ICT-related document within 5 days. As my brain went blank during the first 3 days, the remaining 30 pages needed to be taken care of in the past two days, meaning I was very very screwed and my hands and arms ached all over from dancing over the keyboard too much.

*sighs* I hate it when having to be in a rush because that means I don't have time for reviewing and correcting the points that are left unpolished. They want it fast, and that was the best I could do under the time constraint. I hope I'm not embarassing myself too bad.

I don't know why I've kept accepting the jobs of such nature...oh wait, yeah, that's because I need to make a living. -_-;; Actually my friends disapproved me for not asking for the pay raise in case of urgent works, but you know, I never consider myself deserving to ask for more when some translators out there who are much much more competent than I still work for the pay rate close to mine. I'd feel ashamed of myself if I asked for more. ^_^;;; But then again, my friends' reasoning is also valid as they point out that the translation company I occasionally work for may negotiate with the customer for the fee higher than usual and it should spill over to me as well. Hmm...let's see what can be managed next time.

Anyway, gotta forget all that now that I can sleep after it's all done. *flops onto the bed*

Thesis Hell [25 Mar 2004|06:59pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Am still fumbling with writing a concrete thesis proposal, but this scattered brain won't cooperate. Must have the professor hit some sense into me.

Should prepare myself for the EJU already, but too many things to do, too little time I have. Worst of all, I've always disliked Math but need to term with it now (until the exam at least).

Got Play Station 2 for almost 2 weeks, thanks to my brother. A break from serious stuff is nice. What a fabulous game Final Fantasy X is.
