Well, I spoke too soon.

On Thursday my car broke down. Specifically, the brake light went out, the battery died (permanently) and my wonderful dad who came and replaced the two told me my emergency brake is shot & not to park on any hills....So, that took an entire day and some money to fix. The emergency brake is still shot though. I should mention, the full gage and air condition also do not work. *sigh* I need a new car.

On Friday a job I spoke to months ago emailed and asked for a resume and application turned in ASAP if I was still interested. Good news, but that took time.

And today, when I was planning on finishing and uploading episode 4....I discovered that somehow I had DELETED all the timings. Yup, you read that right. My 90% complete episode 4 somehow lost ALL TIMINGS - they're a bunch of zeros. I mean, I did update my version of the program I'm using but what - how -


The epsiode is done but no timings. So, I am currently moving each line, one by one, into a new Japanese sub file with timings. And, of course, recreating all the timing adjusts I did while translating.

So....that's it, right universe? I'm begging. I just want an un-eventful week and a safely completed episode 4. Please????

NOTE  - Epsiode 4 has around 610 lines. I need to move and double check/fix the timing on each line. Usually I check timing as I go, so I don't have an estimate for how long it will take. I've got the first 15 minutes done (roughly 1/3 of the episode), which took over an hour. This is still MUCH faster than re-timing from scratch.

 So, almost there, but I wasn't able to finish tonight :'(

Weird month

Okay, so I was sick, lost my room mate, tried to find a new place I could afford alone,  convinced my roommate to stay on, interviewed for jobs (never heard back), had a plumbing emergency, thought I'd found a job but it fell through, renewed my lease, found a new temp/as needed position (maybe), and had another sister separate from her husband - she's moving in tomorrow. So... that all happened.


I never stopped subbing, I just got REALLY REALLY slow. lol. It was like an hour ever 3-4 days instead of about 1-2 hours a day. So... #4 is about 90% done and I THINK (crosses fingers) the worst of the crazy is over. I mean, nothing else could happen...right??? The show ended at episode 9, so when 4 is released we'll be almost halfway through.

In good news, the weather has been awesome and I was able to cancel my gym membership and go back to running outside (I only use the gym in the cold dark winter months). Did an easy 5K yesterday. I'm cracking back down down on my diet and exercise - I've decided to finally lose that last 20 lbs that I gained in Japan when I was sick all those years ago. (through healthy eating/exercise I lost 25lbs of it over 2 years, but have plateaued the last year - school, work etc took my focus for a while, so while I didn't gain anything back, I didn't lose either). I have a wedding to attend in May - maybe I'll be the perfectly fit hot chick ;) tee hee.
