I decided to take a day off from exercising yesterday and try to get some relaxing times in. I mostly wound up doing some work research (read: playing a game) and housecleaning though. I also remembered I have a huge backlog of e-mails to reply to but haven’t started on those yet. Man, I’m terrible at keeping up with my mail.
I haven’t really had those chocolate coin things since I was a kid, so when I found a big pile of them the other day at the store I was all over that:
I like them because although they’re milk chocolate, they don’t use that additive that gives it the sour taste that Hershey’s uses. I can’t stand the taste or smell of that American-style milk chocolate, it tastes and smells like rotting garbage :X
For a good couple years I sort of shied away from my Mother 3 stuff because I don’t really like it defining my life, but in the past few weeks it’s been nice to finally really look back at it and remember all that went into it. I definitely couldn’t pull off another project like that now – not enough time in the day and I have too many grownup responsibilities now. It’s going to be interesting playing through the game again for my translation notes – I haven’t really played it since 2008.
Oh yeah, I changed my Twitter account name too, I’m here now. It was mostly because I always felt that MatoTree was too vague and impersonal, this way it has a little more professionalism and personal feel.
When I told people about this, I got this exchange:
That was kind of depressing and is kind of why I’ve been reluctant to focus on Mother 3 stuff again – I don’t want it to be the only thing that people know me for. I guess that’s why I’ve been branching into other new things that I’ve always wanted to try instead.
Oh yeah, I’ve found that my iPhone is very useful when I’m reading through Japanese text in a game or whatever and stumble upon a word I don’t know – I guess that’s what electronic dictionaries were helpful for in the older days but since I never had one I never got to experience that helpfulness. The only thing now is that I hope I can find a way to take these words I have to look up and convert them into Anki entries or other flashcards of some sort so I can master them. Until recently I’ve literally been writing new words on actual note cards – I probably have well over 1000 or 2000 I gotta convert into electronic flashcards someday…
