No… not exactly summer break, just an ordinary semester break. Since I live near the equator, I don’t see such romantic things as graduation in spring, or White Christmas.
And so the semester break came, and now it will end soon. Two days from now I’ll go back to my rented room, and get ready for the new semester.
Again I tell you, not much happened during this one month break. Yeah, only a few,.such as the problem with my credit transfer from my former university, that caused several troubles for me and made me so upset that I smashed my camera cellphone right in front of faculty staffs (and now I’m back with my monochrome cellphone, no music player and no camera).
On the first days of the semester break, I went to HelloFest 8, that was the first major convention I attended. I brought along my dad’s old SLR with two rolls of black and white film. Hell yeah, first time I took photos in an indoor venue, without flash. From those two rolls, only one fourth are worthy enough to be displayed, the remaining shots are total fail.
To sum it up, this semester break just went away, almost without any gain. Maybe this is normal, one doesn’t simply become riajuu. Riajuu is a result of long term effort to gain the best from anything we’re working on, and I wasn’t even in half-throttle mode the last six months.
Talking about ‘throttle’, I’ve got a job to translate a song for a fansub project. Somehow, the project didn’t flip my motivation switch and I’m taking it halfheartedly. *sigh*
A flag, and the start of a route?
On HelloFest 8, I met a Facebook friend for the first time. A girl. We seem to get along well, but I don’t know if this would be the beginning of a route. I don’t even know whether I’ve triggered a flag from her point of view.
Kouryaku, or just let possible chance fly away…?
