  • This week's Cisco networking homework is painful. First lab took 6 hrs, 2nd took 3 hrs, 3rd took 2 hrs, 4th took 3 hrs, 5th took 30 min. Got started with the 6th one while following a 30 min tutorial, but I know it's gonna take 3x longer than the tutorial and I can literally feel my soul shriveling up. I wish the directions weren't so confusing and vague, this is way harder than it needs to be.

    (We're converting binary 0s and 1s for IPv4 and IPv6 networks so they can be divided up in an office setting based on the number of PCs per department.)
    I honest to goodness feel like I messed up like half of my life in the span of a week. And I can't undo it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The sad part of me wants to put a bag on my head and move to a cave. The tired part of me doesn't care. Since I literally can't undo it, I guess I just have to accept that this is how life is now and focus on the half that hasn't changed.

    On a positive note, I got a 95% for my Computer Fundamentals 1 class. (But Computer Fundamentals 2 starts in a few days...)
    One of my classes is over on the 18th. But I have to do 3 modules instead of 2 for it this week (because the last one is finals). But as soon as I'm done, part 2 of the class starts. Been super busy lately and hardly posting at all, sorry.
    I got almost done with my guitar tutorial post, but then I got distracted by trying to draw alternate Vocaloid character designs with my sister and didn't end up finishing... And homework took too long. Oh well.
    *internal and external screaming* Today is too much for me... I'm already really nervous about my doctor appointment, I wish it could have been in the morning and not 4 PM! I'm going to die from nerves.

    (Sorry, that's about as clever/useful an answer as I've got. If I've got stuff like this, I just typically gut it out and figure I'll sleep or something afterwards.... Maybe if we all got medium-sized clubs, they'd more or less equal one big one?)

    It ended up going less traumatizing than I imagined, but now I have to schedule a 2nd appointment. Thanks for the encouragement, everyone.

    Just pretend you're a black metal band and draw a bunch of squiggles on a sheet of paper. Easy peasy.

    Or throw a bunch of twigs onto a piece of paper and call that the logo. 😂

    Honestly, I would try to make a logo, but I hate everything about typography, don't want to touch Adobe Illustrator with a 9 1/2 foot pole, and tried several times/failed.
    Does anyone have a Mastodon account and want to tell me their username? 👀 Mine is "[email protected]" and I don't want to make a new account in order to join Vocalounge. (I just followed the ambassador account.) This site is confusing to me so far and I hate "toots".
    I got so busy with work/school that I completely forgot to finish translating the Miku amigurumi thread and my Vocaloid metal resource. : { NOOO. I wrote it on my to do list, but forgot despite this. Maybe when I get some time after these commissions. Sorry, everyone...
    I haven't been very active on here lately due to the simple fact that I'm really busy! 😱 I check the homepage when I have time, but I don't have time to write out proper replies, so I can only lurk. Been working full time (thankfully only have about 10 days left before I quit working my produce job), trying to get everything in order for IT courses at college (I'm still not done with all my paperwork), and have some translation commissions. But it's good busy.
    I had a cruel dream that I was singing with a male voice in Voidol and it sounded extremely realistic/good. Arg, hopefully they update the software this year.
    Work has become so cruddy. My manager gave his 2 week notice, last day was the 24th, now there are only 3 of us left in the department. So only 2 people can be scheduled per day doing the work of 3 people.

    I'm suddenly the assistant manager again working full time, have to do like 2 pages of the order guide, then fill a cartload, then 2 pages, then cartload, etc. while the other coworker cuts fruit and crud. (The order guide is 50 pages. I complained to the store manager that I don't appreciate having to be the boss and my own minion at the same time.)

    It stinks, I'm killing myself already and it's not even January yet. We have no help lined up at all and are frantically working all day with no breaks. They said we'd get help "soon" but the schedule next week still has just us 3, I know they are really waiting for two semi-retired guys to maybe come back mid January (one can't even lift and the other needs doctor approval). I want to quit this stupid job, I realized I complain about it every single day on Discord (sorry, guys), so why am I even staying? Been there for 5 years and it gets worse all the time (like the roof being broken for over a year now).

    But I don't know what to do. Go to school for IT or something? I don't feel confident in myself, I looked at my resume and it makes me feel stupid. Even though I have been at the same job for 5 years, speak Japanese, was a manager for a year, can do computer stuff. How do I move on as part of my "make 2020 awesome" plan? :{

    Goddamn that sounds terrible. Sounds a lot like my old job actually. I'd say having loyalty (5 yrs), being multilingual, having manager experience, and knowing computer stuff are some really great qualities, if you put yourself out there, though! My dad landed a great job this past year with only about half that. Good luck uncreepy!!

    I'm in a dead end part-time job I'm only doing for the work experience and pocket money. I can't complain too much since I only work one day a week (and my supervisor is also my stepdad, so the other employees can't give me shit lol), but my shift is 8AM to 6PM, and all I do is scan stuff. It's boring as hell.

    I'm currently doing a part-time Master's, and I'm hoping to do a full-time PhD with a grant so I don't get stuck in any other crummy jobs for a few more years at least. Careers after a PhD is another minefield to navigate, however. (Working in academia? And considering the state of politics in my country, a politician/activist?)

    Update: I have a plan now after researching a bit and talking to my family (who have been trying to get me to quit for the last few years). I decided to quit my produce job and go back to college for an IT course, the spring semester starts January 27th. I already wrote up my resignation letter and realized I had a big smile the entire time writing it. There are a couple IT internships literally within walking distance from my house, so I think after I sign up for classes, I will try to apply for them. I kept waiting for the situation at work to get better, but it's literally getting worse every year and there is no benefit other than heartbreak by sticking around. Thanks for listening to and encouraging me, everyone, I don't think I could have been strong enough to come up with a plan without everyone cheering me on.
    I still have to finish the Vocaloid metal Resource organization, but "life" ended up happening and it was a lot harder to transfer the info than I thought it would be (took several hours). So I couldn't finish it in one day.

    @mobius017 The reason I transferred it to be a real Resource was the fact that I was sick of it being in my signature (I deleted from my sig the day I turned it into a Resource). I wanna put something more colorful in my sig, the URLs I had in there took up too much room for anything else! :cool:

    I personally think the last link about usage fees/company contact info would be a resource people would get use out of also, if you wanted to move that. That would give you your whole signature area back.

    I agree. I just don't know when I'll get around to it. orz Too many projects going on lately.
    I need a vacation! 😱

    Can you ask for like 3 days off? :nemu_lili: Could be cool if you could get a vacation instead!

    I doubt it. My boss is still using up his PTO this week and we're down a staff member. November was the worst month ever for me because I work in the produce department at a grocery store and we had the dreaded candy/nut sale on top of Thanksgiving. It's been snowing like crazy this week and I hurt my arms/hands while shoveling + stocking 50 lb boxes of produce crud and therefore couldn't play guitar, and now I only have today and tomorrow to practice (but I work 9-5 today and it's snowing AGAIN and my arms are weak like wet noodles). Ugggg.

    I feel like the reason Voidol add-on voices are surprisingly expensive is because they don't expect people will buy more than 1 for their VTuber "persona"?

    I could see that but still there's so much poping

    I agree. I kept wracking my brain and that's the only "logical" reason for the price tag that I could think of. I feel like it would have been smarter for them to sell it cheaper or no one will buy any at all. I'm just gonna wait and see if there is a sale when the last batch of voices comes out, then I'll decide if I'll buy any of the add-on voices at all. S:

    I'm waiting for a sale when they see it's not selling well
    I've been kind of inactive lately (other than casual chitchat). Been focusing a ton on trying to make music, so between learning guitar, bass, and theory, it's very time-consuming. We're getting closer to finding out when the new Piapro comes out (near the end of the year), so I guess I'm forcing myself to transition away from being the Wat translator and focus on a new identity. Trying to go back to my visual kei/metal loving roots that got me translating in the first place. I really want to be known as a Vocaloid metal producer instead of a Crypton_Watologist in the future.

    Hey, good for you, Uncreepy! I'll be looking forward to seeing what you do with your musical skills (if you choose to share it, of course).

    Now seems like the appropriate time to say thank you for all your hard work in translating Wat's tweets about Piapro and keeping everyone updated on it! :D

    Sounds great! You've done an awesome job covering Wat's stuff, but I'm excited to see you get to take that step!
    Voidol:
    Find out about plans to release Voidol for Windows on April 3rd.
    They also announce plans to release the Windows version on May 6th.
    Windows version delayed twice, actually comes out on September 29th.
    Add-on voices planned to release August or September.
    September long gone, still waiting for add-on voices.
    Total wait time since I created the Voidol thread: 206 days (6 months and 23 days).
