Title: My goal for School Rumble...
Post by: Roots on June 26, 2005, 05:48:09 AM
I know it's been a while since we've seen a SR release and here's the main reason why. Life has been brutally murdering me starting since about March and it's put me under a tremendous amount of constant stress and fatigue. I haven't been translating hardly anything for...damn I don't even know how many weeks now. I thought things would get better once school got out, but it's only gotten worse (school didn't really end for me....long story). And I still work full-time ya know. So for that, I apologize but I literally have had no control over my life.  :'(


So that's what's been up. Now, god willing, I might be finally getting out of this rut and find some precious precious time again to translate. I will regain my so-called life starting around July 1st and as long as my boss doesn't throw some huge ass assignment to me that needs to be done next week, or my professor doesn't make me write another paper or do other crap, I should be homefree until September. So here is my goal. I (and others who help t/l) will be caught up with SR tank translations (volume 9) by the end of the summer. I can make no promises though because my life is so unpredicable these days, but that is a goal I really want to achieve (and I know you want me to achieve it to). Ok, I need to go pass out in a corner somewhere for a while now.  :P

It's good to have a goal set. Keeps you on track and focused ;D

edit: Just make sure you don't make promises, or else everyone will start posting about how the release isn't "on schedule"

Well good luck with that one.  I'm getting too busy to even edit right now.  So yeah, just pass the work to the others...like we always do :P

That's why I specifically said in my post "This is my goal, I can't make any promises."  :P

Well we're even closer now. I don't know why, but all of the sudden translating SR has become like 10x easier/faster for me than I remember. :) As a sneak preview, here's an excerpt from the translation script I wrote last night:


Hah, oh the men of the sea
(Yarr. Yarr.)
Relying on the seagulls of the open waters 
Crying out kah kah in the port
Someone has taken it, the big harpoon
Hah, what heartbreak. What heartbreak.

Oh the men of the ship
(Yarr. Yarr.)
Cradled through choppy weather and storms
Get some rum in ya, feeling the waves splashin'
Hah, what heartbreak. What heartbreak.

Oh the men of the sea
(Yarr. Yarr.)
I am the tuna and the tuna is me
Swallowin' the waves, I feed the fish bait
Hah, what heart break. What heartbreak.
Hah, it's a big catch. A big catch.



Seriously ;)
