Ever closer...

Whew. I feel like today has been the climax of our Deadline Death Gauntlet, and the rest will be the denouement. Like it's all downhill from here. At least we hope it is. We still have three things to turn in, though, so we'll see. I don't know what it is, though, that all these "plans" (as in "plans for Monday night") keep popping up when we're busiest. Like seeing Batman and home teachers coming over.

It was really crazy today, too, because it was our Gakuen Alice Check Day. That means we finished translating it yesterday, and today we went over the entire script to fix all the stuff that sounded funny, as well as translate all the stuff that was too hard for us the first time because we were in such a hurry to move on with the story (which really just means we had to do a Google search and sometimes a little detective work to find out what it really meant instead of just using our handy dictionaries). With the easier titles, that usually only takes about a couple of hours, but it was taking longer so we were kind of stressed out. Why? Because we knew our home teachers would be coming over, and earlier than usual, thus cutting into our work time more. I didn't know it would take so long to check Gakuen Alice when we made the plans (though I suspected). Also, we kept getting phone calls from people wanting us to pay them to make a website for us and visits from Jehovah's Witnesses. And I don't mind listening to people, but when I say I'm busy I do hope they'll make things quicker. Ah well. It really felt like it was taking more time than it actually did.

Fortunately, we managed to get everything done, and still have a very nice visit with our home teachers. But it's very likely that we won't be working on Big Project today.

But! We did finally get Ashvin's ending last night! I haven't decided if I want to talk about it or not, because normally I figure why not, but we've been feeling very pressed for time lately, so I don't want to take the time to remember everything. So maybe another day.

Today I'm thankful for finishing Gakuen Alice, a nice visit with our home teachers, getting to have chocolate dunkers last night (so sad that they're gone...), having finally gotten Ashvin's ending, and the X button.
