WARNING! This update will be extremely lengthy. Skip if not interested.
This is just an update in case any of you were interested on what I’ve been doing, and a bit of venting of some sorts. It might contain me unhappily expressing my feelings at some quite personal level. You’ve been warned.
So, it’s been 3 months since a proper update.
I always tend to forget that reality is often disappointing, and a few months back I was reminded again.
As you all may have (or not) known, I’m an aspiring university student. Back in September 2018, I started what you can say a pre-university program. Things were going smooth for the most part, I had exams and such but I do enjoy subtitling J-Drama whenever I can.
And then, early 2019 on May, bad news came.
In short, you could say I was a scholarship receiver. Meaning, I wouldn’t have to pay for my tuition fees and that it was fully sponsored. Well, the way of the adults world works might be too advanced for me as I suddenly received news that my scholarship would be ‘reworked’. In one way or another, you could say I was scammed. I lost a lot of my potential in furthering my studies as they suddenly enforced drastic changes. It was more to benefit the university rather than the students.
In the end, I persevered and decided to finish up my pre-uni, and that was only until the very end of August. I didn’t receive my allowance and as such had to live off money that was the remainder of the previous months that they gave. For around 5 months or so, the supposed monthly allowance was gone like that.
As a result, I had to quickly drop out for the time being and from early September until recently, I’ve been doing odd jobs to sustain my livelihood, hence I was unable to be more active here.
It sucks. It really does. I’m still unsure whether I’ll continue my studies after this or the whole subtitling thing, but I thought at least I’d want to finish the current projects that I do have, which is Tokyo Dokushin Danshi (TDD).
That’s the overall gist of it. I’m typing this at 1.33 a.m. in the morning, but I thought everyone that visits this site deserves to know why I was M.I.A.
Also, thank you very much for those who’ve visited this site. Although I didn’t post that often, the viewership on this site never really declined, so that was kind of a push for me to not drop subbing TDD. I’ll finish the rest of the episodes. The main reason I didn’t want to put adlinks on this blog was because I think it was unfair. You guys came here for free subtitles, so I won’t change that~ 🙂
I hope everyone can continue show me their support! Thank you very much for reading till the very end.
Wishing you a good night (day)
