  • Went to a job interview today, it went well in my opinion. They said they'll let me know next week if I got the job. It's a landscaping job, but turned out they'd have use for someone with a truck license too, so my chances might be good.

    The fact that tomorrow is April 1st has a lot to do with this ;)

    Yes, April Fools, hence the remark I put in spoiler
    It just occurred to me that this year marks the 10th anniversary of my first trip to Japan... how time flies. It was a big thing for me to go to a far away country without my family back then. I wasn't really that much into Vocaloid at that time, but rather Japanese culture (both traditional and modern). While it kind of feels it was yesterday (figuratively), at the same time it feels like it was ages ago
    Now they have checkpoints on the province borders to restrict movement in and out of Uusimaa. It's not impossible to slip through via smaller roads tho
    Welp, bye bye 2020 Olympics I guess
    (Note this is not an official IOC decision, but it seems more and more likely the Tokyo Olympics will not take place when they originally were supposed to)

    It's sad, but better to be safe than sorry. Besides, that gives Olympians another year to train, which means the Summer Olympics will be even better!

    If the Olympics move to 2021, I guess it means next year's Magical Mirai will be organized the same way as this year (Osaka in August and Tokyo towards the end of the year). I won't be happy if that's what happens. To me the turn of August/September is the best time for Mirai, and Tokyo is the better location.

    @peaches2217 I don't care that much about the Olympics really, but agreed, better not take risks with the virus.
    I was going to preorder Taito's summer Miku figure, thankfully I double checked my order history as I had already preordered her some time ago. I should start keeping a list of my preorders across different sites. I had completely forgotten I ordered her :P
    I've been watching Magical Mirai 2016-2019 Blurays over the weekend. I wish it was December already, can't wait for Tokyo Mirai this year.
    It's been really quiet on the vocaloid front recently. No interesting news, song uploads and not very much good artwork to enjoy on my twitter feed. At least the weather was nice for a change and I did some hiking in the nearby forests

    Assuming I'm not legally forced into quarantine, I want to get out and about hiking too. (Since my government has only just closed all pubs, restaurants, cafes, etc., there's nowhere else to go for a bit.)
    I said some time ago that I wanted to try out a dakimakura type of art. I've finally got around to work on it, and I like the way it's turning out so far (still in lineart phase tho). It 's going to be a lot of work, not to mention I want to make a sfw version too.
    I don't tend to buy nendoroids (Snow Princess Miku is my only nendo), but V4X Miku is tempting, very tempting...

    yeah I was eyeballing her too lol!!!! those glasses alone almost have me sold. I only have about 5 nendoroids in my collection either, the only vocaloid-related ones being sakura miku. SHE'S SO PRETTY :<< and Teto because I couldn't physically live without her.

    I guess it's Geralt VS Miku V4X now

    Yeah, the glasses and her cute expressions are what make me want to buy her!
    Piapro photo session at Volks' Doll Point Akihabara. Essentially a meeting +photo session for Cryptonloid Dollfie owners. So many nice looking Dollfies! I wish there was one when I visit Japan next time
    And now my country is closing schools and several public facilities, banning gatherings of more than 10 people and closing borders starting on the 18th. No curfews or anything though. Only 272 confirmed cases in the whole country, so this feels a bit excess. It's not affecting my life for now, but still.

    It looks like the UK is gonna impose a mass gathering ban too. No curfews or formal lockdowns yet either, though pubs, restaurants and cafes might be forced to close.

    To be honest, the British public seem to be more up to speed with Covid than the government is. A lot of town and city centers have gone really quiet over the last couple of weeks, and the pubs which usually do great on the weekends were half empty this weekend. I also spotted less traffic on the roads this morning as well. Sport and entertainment events have either already cancelled or postponed stuff as precautions.
