but i omitted them

Last Chapter Update

Whoo. My week has been packed and I am very tired and ouchy. I also just spent the last hour and a half doing some major Home organizing and crunched  some numbers according to my plot outline:

There are 57 drawings remaining; 27 of those are absolutely essential and must be included in the last chapter. I just counted my drawings and I have 30 (almost 31!) finished.

Which brings us back to my original claim back in August that the last chapter would have 60 drawings (31+27 = close enough). The drawings that aren’t essential would be adorable and funny, but I think I will have to omit them since… Since I don’t want to post the last chapter in 2021.

Soooooo according to my calculations, since it takes me about 4 days (14-24 solid hours) to complete one drawing, it will take me 108 days to finish the last essential 27…. AKA, 3.5 months. Factoring in family dinners and other distractions, I’ll round up to four months. So…

New estimate: Chapter 18 will be posted in late June.

A few have already started proclaiming their disapproval/lost interest due to the time I’ve spent already. I really want you, my beautiful and kind readers, to know that it pains me dearly to delay the last chapter as long as I am, but I’m adamant about ending Home right. These drawings are very warm, colorful and detailed, and it will wrap up everything in the best, fuzziest, happiest way.

Thank you for your endless patience ♥

The first few pages of my  ShuAke book titled “A tribute to a liar”. I omitted some pages containing spoilers but you can see them on Pixiv.

The story is about the protagonist (named Hayato) on his “second loop” of the year trying to understand more about Akechi. However, the more he finds out……

Mexican Rice.  Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker.

Mexican Rice

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 teaspoon garlic salt
¼ cup chopped onion
½ cup tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth

(A lot of the recipes I saw called for cumin or other spices, but I chose to omit them.)

1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat and add rice. Cook, stirring constantly, until puffed and golden. While rice is cooking, sprinkle with garlic salt.

2. Stir in onions and cook until tender. Stir in tomato sauce and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

I think my goal for Friday’s therapy session, if it isn’t cancelled, will be to be honest about my disordered thoughts and the full scale of them right now and just where my head is at. I may not ever lie directly to them, but I definitely omit things at times. This is probably the best thing I can to help myself, is to just be honest about the thoughts that are along the lines of push them to their edge, your dietitian is so gentle you can easily manipulate her if and when you have to see her again, your shrink you have some sway with, you can play victim and get away with things… Plus he’s not as specific about nutritional details.

Like ah! How are these thoughts in my head?

I’m too aware of these thoughts and where they are coming from to not voice them at this point. In the past I might have not known what I was doing, but I am aware of those disordered thoughts now and I have my own voice to use. So that seems to be the best “action” I can make right now, lacking any motivation, is just to be honest. You wanna know what goes on in my head? Behind the curtain? Here you go…

I think I’m done with Hemiola’s Room…..

Skipped the rug because it doesn’t match the decor and the room is busy enough as it is.

The battery compartment doesn’t work. TnT That’s ok, I don’t keep batteries in the other one, either. The wires are taped to the back for now.

Obviously, tons of changes and some omissions. Though I did try to make myself assemble the small, fiddly things I had skipped last time.

I got lazy on the wall art, changed almost every paper and fabric, made the pillows much too large (oops), and accidentally ruined a couple pieces of wire with my clumsy hands so I had to change how those would have been used, or omited them all together. I also drilled a hole behind the wall lamp to run the wires out instead of running them down the wall and behind the cabinet.

I added the bead from my mimikaki as an extra flower vase instead of using the large, framed photo that was supposed to be on top of the cabinet, and made some toothpick pencils in place of the wire and paper utensils the kit wanted me to make. I made a mess trying to make the scissors and gave up on that. XD

This kit comes with a small bottle of white glue, so I used what was left of the Siliglue from the last kit I did for the major assembly, in addition to Tombow Mono Multi glue to put on the wall paper and flooring, and Scor-tape for smaller details.

Just like last time, I did not glue everything down. I worked hard to put these little things together and want to be able to pick them up and look at them from time to time.

I’ve translated the article and photo captions from these two scans (which I originally saw at fruitridernews‘s post here).  The first and last paragraph of the article are just information about the release dates and new lockseeds which have already been made known elsewhere, so I’ve omitted them from the translation and focused on the story information.  The captions are numbered to match the screenshots above.  Enjoy!

Main Article:

    The main character of Kamen Rider Duke will be, of course, Sengoku Ryoma, and the story will center around an internal incident that takes place during the development of the next-generation Genesis Driver belts.  A suicide bombing is committed by an Yggdrasill employee using a mysterious lockseed.  And at the root of this incident is a cult known as “Black Linden”…  The episode will also tell the stories of Ryoma’s first encounters with the members of the Genesis Team - a must-watch for fans of the series.  It’s going to be loaded with highlights, such as the interactions between Ryoma, with his shadowy existence at Yggdrasill, and Takatora, who displays an understanding of Ryoma’s research.

    Kamen Rider Knuckle, with Zack as its central character, will be a “what happens next” story for Team Baron.  Two years have passed since the great battle at the end of the series, and the former Armored Riders have all started moving down their own paths.  Zack goes to New York in pursuit of his dreams as a dancer, but back in Japan, a group calling themselves “Neo Baron” is already at work in the shadows.  They’re a gang running an underground fighting ring with gambling on the matches, and using the money they collect from the bets to expand their influence as a gang.  And the one at the head of the gang is a man named Shura, who has a history with Team Baron…  With “strength” and “weakness” as its central themes, this episode will bring out the heart-piercing drama of the struggles and anguish Team Baron faces in a world without Kaito.

Captions:

Kamen Rider Duke

1.  Ryoma’s first meeting with Sid, during Sid’s days as a gangster, will be shown in the film.  Sid is working in the shadows as a contraband dealer when he encounters an Inves…

2.  Ryoma shows himself before Minato Yoko, who at the time is working as an industrial spy.  Yoko becomes interested in Ryoma when he correctly guesses the ambition lurking in the depths of her heart…

3.  Kudou Kugai was once the man in charge of Yggdrasill’s research division - Ryoma’s predecessor, as it were.  He’s supposed to be dead, after an accident that occurred during an activation test for one of Ryoma’s lockseeds…

Kamen Rider Knuckle

4.  "Kaito, watch over me…“  Zack’s anger explodes against the cruel Neo Baron!  Zack will keep fighting, both for the sake of Kaito’s pride and to confront the weakness in his own heart.

5.  Shura was once a Beat Rider who danced together with Zack and Peco.  But when Kaito took over the team, Shura was kicked out.  What happened between them?  Shura creates Neo Baron, claiming he’ll carry on Kaito’s will and create a world where only the strong survive…

6.  Many of the former Armored Riders will make appearances in the film.  Oren shows up at the underground fighting ring run by Neo Baron, and his skills are reliable as ever.  Meanwhile, it seems his apprentice (of sorts) Jounouchi has improved his skills enough to win a dessert competition.  One of the highlights of the episode will be the portrayals of how the supporting characters have grown.

7.  In response to Team Baron’s crisis, Mitsuzane throws a lifeline to Zack.  The trunk he’s holding has a Sengoku Driver and a Walnut Lockseed, as well as the Maron Energy Lockseed!

8.  While the main story takes place two years after the series, there will also be scenes of past events at every turn.  Kaito, whose personality is the same as ever, will appear in the memories about the founding of Team Baron.

Finished my other bullet journal last month and I’ve started working with a new system. I’m loving it so far! It’s attractive yet simple, and it allows me to plan for the day in more ways than just making a to-do list. I can also fit quite a bit of info in a small space, so I’m not filling an entire page with just one day. I realized with the last bullet journal that using symbols for different things wasn’t helping me be more organized and I was really just keeping them in for fun, so I decided to omit them completely with this one and focus more on color (green highlighter for work-related things, blue to show when I get a break, days divided by different colors and a simple dotted border, etc.).
