I've spent all night laying out the s5p for The Past is Like a Dream, so all I'll have to do once Haiyi gets here is plug her in, enter the lyrics, then get to tuning! Fun fact: Renri actually sounds gorgeous singing it, even though she's just saying "la" over and over again.
So since transferring for my bachelor's program, I've been living with my mom, sleeping either on the couch or in the spare room (which doubles as the cats' litter box room, and since one of my cats likes to LOUDLY announce his presence before using the bathroom, no matter what time of night it is, I usually sleep on the couch). But my baby sister's trying to gradually start sleeping in her own room (she usually just hangs out in it and then sleeps in my mom's room), so I've been given permission to start moving my stuff in!
I hung up my clothes in the closet and then ran to Lowe's to grab a bookshelf. I put my DIY skincare products on the bottom shelf, since they weigh like 50lbs all together, then I put my books on the next two shelves and my Vocaloid collection on the top shelf. Then to tie my new corner of the room together, I hung up a canvas painting of Bold and Brash.
I'm really happy. I'd like to be able to get my own bedding soon too!
I did the fine-tuning using the VB the person wanted, and they mentioned wanting to release it for her anniversary, so I won't post the end result (though dang it I want to, I'm pretty proud of it!). But I'm happy I was able to help someone out!
...why can't I get VSQs done that fast when I'm just doing them for fun?
I wanna thank @patuk and @RoboCheatsyTM and literally everyone else who encouraged and educated me regarding my UTAU ignorance. I think I'm getting the hang of it, and I'm really starting to have fun with it!
Y'know? Considering this is my first shot at a UST, and considering I haven't even tuned it yet... it doesn't sound awful. (Except for that one section where I completely forgot to put in the lyrics, but I fixed that pretty quickly. )
Since I'm done with my surgeries, I think I can risk taking a driving-heavy job. So... I signed up as an Instacart shopper. I read and signed all the contracts and sent in my info, and now I just need to pass a background inspection. Wish me luck! I desperately need this.
@Leon@xuu how long did it take between your packages being shipped out and you being notified that they'd arrived? It's been well over three days since the last update I got on Haiyi and I'm getting seriously scared.
Chapter 23 of TBBC was on indefinite hiatus because the plot kicked off with with a trip to the mall to buy New Year's presents and led up to a discussion about Christmas Eve, and I missed that deadline. I can change that to "They're buying presents for Kaito's birthday" (which is February 17th), and it'll have the same general hilarity without so much filler before getting to the core of the chapter. (Basically, Oliver, Rin, and Len are discussing scarves, trying to narrow them down... and get ten of them, because it's traditional to get Kaito a shit-ton of scarves for his birthday.) Then, rather than Christmas Eve, it'll play into Valentine's Day.
It's more cliche that way, but I'll figure out how to make it work.
Over on the VocaLounge I've acquired like three followers. Logically, I know it's because it's new, as am I (I just started posting today), and I haven't posted a whole lot, and nothing I have to post is quality anyway. But my brain won't stop telling me it's because everyone already hates me. I just... can't be convinced people don't hate me, even if I know it's illogical. I always assume people hate me right from the start, and I have to earn the right to be not hated.
