Yeah, everything is good here! It's good to hear that you and your family are safe and well. Thinking about the future, I've been trying to decide if and when I should open a savings account. I know it would be helpful, but, well, I guess I'll just keep thinking about it for now, lol. If I do open one, I'd want it to be joint with my sister, but then there's the thing with tax and stuff, and probably a bunch of things. So I'll mostly live life at the moment, but I'll make sure to not make any dumb mistakes I might regret, lol.

Yeah, my bro' and sis'-in-law went on hiatus for quite some time but then got back into it again fairly recently. Seems they're still enjoying it, so that's good. They even considered playing it together during Christmas this year, when they'll come over and visit.

As for what's been going on lately, I've been rediscovering past interests and got into buying a lot of merchandise. It's actually nice because way back when, I didn't have my own income or anything to be able to do anything like this, so now all of a sudden, I'm buying in bulk, lol. And also, this stuff can only be gotten in Japan, so of course it will be more expensive than usual. But I'm not gonna regret anything, even if it's a lot, because money doesn't make me happy unless I put it to use. It's why I value time over money; I don't normally spend a lot of money, but I definitely value all the time I can get to do the things I love.

Anyway, work has been a bit stressful lately, but I think other than that, things seem to be going pretty well for me.

Bruh a year late means you're right on time haha
Can't remember the last time a lot of my "friends" even messaged me but whatever. That's just life

I actually put that novel on pause and started writing a weeby web novel called "My Government-Issued Girlfriend Can't Be This Cute!". Still writing both novels though, but this new one is publishing bi-weekly online already so I'm prioritizing it over the other one since this one has a tiny fanbase I kinda don't wanna disappoint lol

Fam, in that one year you didn't reply I literally watched and caught up to One Piece haha, meanwhile you didn't watch any anime at all :( Maybe just try out the first episodes of some stuff and see if any catch your fancy. There's some pretty hype stuff airing this season :7

Oh boy, it's been a while. How have you been? I'm still working from home, which is honestly great, and my family is still healthy as can be. I see you haven't been active on MAL, either, since we last talked, but, well, here I am again, albeit briefly.

I'm still just playing FFXIV, still going on strong, lol. My brother and sister-in-law recently picked up the game and have been playing on and off. They seem to be enjoying it, at least, but are still very new considering they haven't played much. This is also my sis'-in-law's first MMO, so she's pretty clumsy. I'm just excitedly waiting for them to get to the really epic parts of the story.

Other than that, I've been into requesting commissions from various artists. From doing so, I noticed that the color display on my gaming laptop is horrible. It's not accurate at all, and I've made the mistake of using it to determine colors when commissioning a few people. I also happen to use that laptop for my art, so now I'm super bothered about it, haha. I want to buy a new laptop, but it's kind'a pointless if I don't really use it for any reason other than art, and at least my drawing tablet is the type with its own display, and the colors display accurately on there, so it's not like I need to get a new laptop, but still... If there's one thing I learned, it's to never, ever buy a budget gaming laptop, no matter what. Better to just invest in a much more expensive one... The thing is, this laptop had pretty good reviews for a budget laptop, but had I known that it doesn't display colors accurately, I would've avoided it. But at that time, I didn't have as much disposable income as I do now...

Anyway, I hope you're doing all right! Hope you and your family are safe.

Dang, only 3 months late? That's pretty fast compared to other people haha. You're fine. At least you have a good excuse.
I'm 27 1/2 atm. I see middle age coming and it's not pretty. I have nothing going for me besides a bit of creativity and the ability to put some of it into words.
Currently I'm in the process of scouting people interested in trying out my first chapters to gleam what works and what doesn't. Found some people here on MAL and Facebook which was nice. For the most part, I think my first few chapters are polished enough that the only complaints I'm getting are nit picks so I want to get back in the groove already. Stopped writing on chapter 8 to see if I needed any major edits. But everyone seems to like I what I have so far so I'm content; will probably need more beta readers soon though.
The novel is titled Dominion's Paradise and it's a dark, epic Fantasy kind of like Grimgar or Goblin Slayer if you know those anime, just with an Isekai element. If you're curious, here's the synopsis:

Yeah I'm kind of falling out of anime these days too, mostly because I want to focus all my free time on writing this dang novel haha. Only really watching the new Demon Slayer and Attack on Titan this season, though I did just finish another new anime called Odd Taxi which was kind of amazing.

Yeah, I got fully vaccinated, but I'm gonna get the booster shot next week for the delta variant. To be honest, I'm fine with the way things are right now so as long as no one in my family gets sick. I'm a homebody, after all. xD

I ended up swapping out my mechanical keyboard for a different one, since the flat keyboard made me fat-finger a bunch of times, so now I have one with raised keys, so it's working much nicer, and it's easier to hit the G keys. Distance is about the same, but since the keys are raised, I won't accidentally hit two buttons at the same time or something.

Yeah, my new computer has been set up since a few months ago, and for a time, I used a high-end graphics card that I bought at $200 discount, leaving its final price at $2000. x_x In the end, though, I managed to buy another one from a preferred brand for MSRP (basically the price that the card was at when it was released, not inflated) and then officially swapped them out a little while after. I ended up selling my used one on eBay for a little bit of money back, I guess (around $1400, but at least I used it for a few months)...

When comes to tatsumaki, there are a couple of things: for example, we have a voting system now. When we vote, we can get items that doesn't have in the shop every month. There are new badges, there are new pets and we can get items like pet food for free. I don't know if existed before you left, but we have daycare and fieldtrip for pets. And seems possible to visit people's pets. These things are what I remember. Not sure if is there anything else.

I miss being 26 already xD Give me your youth lol. I think I’m closer to middle age than I am my childhood now. F.
Oh yeah, I finished that synopsis a long time ago now. I had fun writing it. But I don’t like writing for that program much these days. It’s basically just free labor. Not only am I not paid, I’m also not given public credit even though I do 90% of the total work. Editors put a few commas in and coordinators copy and paste my work to the website, yet it’s a “team” effort so I’m not allowed distinction lmao. Guess there’s a metaphor for life somewhere in all of that.
I’m mostly on this website these days to talk with close friends or inquire advice about the web novel I’m writing. Other than that yeah, I’m just like you where I’m only on and off these days. Though I still watch a good amount of anime lol.
ViolinistGirl Aug 20, 2021 8:07 PM
Sorry for late reply, I wanted to reply before but I forgot to write.
About the discord: fair enough hahaha
Believe it or not I joined the tatsu server yesterday (20) because of some items and stuff.
Protaku Aug 7, 2021 11:02 PM
Ughhhh I wanna imagine it was a small hiatus at least, I hate the idea of getting older xD 3 years past by in like a flash smh. And dang, didn't know I hated the job even all the way back then lol. But yeah I'm out of it, living off money I saved from it for now until I can get a new job.
But yeah I'm back here on MAL for now, been logging in almost every day but not really doing much. I mostly came back because I wanted to give this funny manga a synopsis since it didn't have one. Other than that yeah, seems a bunch of my friends have been AFK for years now too. f. good to hear you're doing fine though. Stay strong in these tough times ~
ViolinistGirl Jul 10, 2021 9:59 AM
My health issues are getting better, little by little. Any chance of you visiting MAL discord one day?
Protaku Jun 26, 2021 1:03 AM
"What hours do you usually work?"

Shit I left there now fam xD That's why I'm back after a small hiatus. Now Im looking for new work but I felt bad about leaving a lot people hanging so came back. Hope you been doing alright tho
AcidRainForever May 21, 2021 7:32 PM
Yeah, and my sister has to go to the office every day. At least she's gotten both vaccine doses. I'm just waiting to get my second one still, since I had to postpone my first one due to other medical issues. We both got Moderna, since we've heard that it's 100% effective for Asians. The side effects weren't too bad for us.

I got myself a new mechanical keyboard pretty recently; I don't remember if I told you yet. But it has G keys all the way on the leftmost side, and most of them I'd have to strain so hard to hit them. So I really only use the bottom-most G key because that's practically the only one I can hit smoothly.

Yeah, I know how to build one from scratch. The gaming hardware economy is so shit right now, though. Lots of scalpers and cryptominers using bots to snag all the good GPUs and CPUs so that the actual gamers can't get them at normal price. My sister has been participating in Newegg shuffles (kind'a like daily sweepstakes by Newegg, where they offer gaming hardware bundles that include the good GPUs/CPUs/mobos with budget hardware that they're trying to clear), and we've even been using multiple sources to tell us when stock drops and hope that we can beat the bots to the checkout (very hard, stock is out within seconds). My sister has been doing this for months and finally miraculously managed to buy a good CPU at MSRP from Amazon before the bots got to it. There are still plenty of them in stock, but they're being sold by scalpers for more than double or triple their MSRP, so we don't buy them (and neither do the bots). We did, however, reluctantly buy one for myself from an official business, even though they were selling it higher than MSRP as well. But as long as it's not from the individual asshole scalpers, I guess it's OK... Anyway, we've also ordered new limited edition Corsair tower cases and all-in-one liquid coolers. All we need now are GPUs and motherboards. Sorry, this stuff might be going over your head. x) It's just now is a really bad time to be upgrading PCs... We're going for high-end PCs so that we can futureproof ourselves; not sure what kind of setup you're going for.

Well, technically my co-workers and I are forced to buy presents for each other for the Secret Santa they have every year. xD

No problem. It wasn't a lot of issues but I think it was related to my health. Good to know you are doing well. :)
