Phase one

Well, phase one is complete. I'm not sure what it's phase one of exactly, but it's complete. We worked on Sailor Moon today, is what I'm saying. Progress was slow as expected. I don't understand what it is about this series that makes it so hard to form good sentences. There's probably some overthinking, and certainly a lot of long sentences. I mean, do the Death Busters have to point out that their crystal is their source of life every single time they say its name? Come on. (Naturally, we have decided that no, they do not, and in some lines of dialogue we removed that information as the readers would assuredly have remembered it from the previous page.)

Tomorrow is phase two. The plan is to go to the temple, translate a chapter of Edens Zero, and maybe if we're lucky, a whole episode of Gakuen Basara. Or maybe we'll choose to work on the manga that's due in a couple of weeks instead. Phase two is not set in stone.

Wednesday is phase three. I don't know what phase three is. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Today I'm thankful for making not terrible progress on Sailor Moon, the chocolate croissants we got at Bread Day yesterday, having a lovely chat with our mother on the phone, finding out about some Harry Potter books that could be interesting to look into once we're done reading the main series, and it being time to sleep soon.
