Sooo, it has been quite a bit since I’ve done such a post. Right now, I’m in one of those period in which I can enjoy some rest from all the things I have had to do before. During the past month, I got once again the confirm of how much this blog revolves around the translation of Dadaroma’s and Polkadot Stingray’s works: don’t worry, I’m actually really enjoying the direction of their newest releases and I’m looking forward to translate much more from them.
About that, on November the stars lined up with my blog blessing it with the close release of those two band newest songs, giving it a ridiculous views-boost which broke a new monthly record: almost 3300 views. That means that everyday, almost 110 people wasted some time reading my stuff! Thank you!
Seeing so much enthusiasm actually helped me a lot building my confidence to face the Japanese Language Proficiency Test I had two days ago. Now, I still don’t know the results, but sitting in front of the pc every night to write an article really set a rhythm to my study which, starting from this year, has turned into kinda “self-taught” . That made me think that I could do a similar thing in December too, something like an advent calendar of wintery-songs, but turned out that not enough song of that kind came to my mind. Also, it would have been difficult due to the exam.
BUT, I guess I could still avoid slacking out, grab my dictionary and get something similar to that going: a mixture of new releases (the new Diaura album came out), old requests (Arimura Ryutaro and maybe some Polkadot Stingray’s old song) and my favourite wintery songs (which may be old, but still have a very big place in my heart).
I would love to cover the whole month of December with that, but since the 18th I will be completely busy for reasons. Because yes, in Italy Christmas is that festivity in which you are always eating: there’s no “pause”, you just have to eat. So yeah, I’ll try to plan some articles in advance for that period and until January you’ll hear from me only on Instagram (maybe).
Also, once again, the graphics will change according to the season. Better get used to it. And be thankful that I won’t apply the horrible setting that makes snowflakes fall from above. You’re welcome.
Happy freezing days!
