Surreal

Oh man, today has felt so surreal. I look back on it, and I'm like, "It wasn't even all that weird," but that doesn't mean it didn't feel weird at the time. The plan was to start by working on UQ Holder!, but then we had an email with a quick file for us to translate, so we did that first. And then we tried to work on UQ Holder!, but there were technical difficulties and we couldn't. In the meantime, we got an email letting us know that things are hectic at Kodansha, which is kind of good for us because with all the schedule shuffling they might as well extend our My Little Monster deadline, but it's all because of unhappy things going on with other people, so that's unhappy.

And so I don't even know what all we did today, but I know we worked. Thinking back, we did finish our first draft of My Little Monster, and this was not the volume to be struggling with deadlines on, because boy is it talky. And we translated two little bonus files, and we worked on our big time-consuming project, and now, at almost ten o'clock, we're getting ready to take a quick sugar break and finally finish the chapter of UQ Holder! that was supposed to be the first thing we did today.

Things look hopeful and bleak at the same time. But we're going to focus on hopeful.

Today I'm thankful for finally getting that UQ Holder! file, having a little extra time for My Little Monster (all our other deadlines currently remain the same, but come to think of it, we might be able to shuffle those around too if necessary, but since we hate that idea...), having cookies waiting for us to snack on them, Page being super cute right now, and being almost done with work for the day.
