Despite being MIA for 2 weeks, I only have Marriage and Bridegroom updates to offer you guys this week. 💦💦💦
SO sorry for my absence — lab and course work suddenly ramped up, got a new thesis project, wrote a 8k word+ paper (that is on draft #5 and I really never want to see it again 😂), and have a new paper due this Friday that I’ve been trying to get a head start on since December but couldn’t because I’m an idiot and despite 4 meetings with the professor I couldn’t find a suitable topic, lol. Is this what being a grad student feels like?
Anyway, all my thanks to c69bby and Somebody for the (much-needed) coffee! I really really appreciate it!!
Also thanks to everyone who was concerned about the jjwxc fiasco and poked me. I thought about it for a long time, talked to some other translator friends, and I think I’m gonna just take things one step at a time. For now, everything will remain the same — I’ll be posting my translations publicly here on my site. We’ll see if I end up regretting this decision in the future ^^;;
Cross your fingers for me in hopes I’ll finish this paper soon — and that I’ll be back with new updates after the bane of my existence in the last 3 months is gone, haha.
Ah ah ah ah ah sorry for the late updates!! Prostrates myself and offers the full chapter for Former Sweetheart QAQ!
Would have had these up sooner, but we had literally the biggest snow storm ever yesterday?! I swear I have never seen so much snow in my entire life! It was like 40cm of snow in a single day, I was so shook! ❄️❄️❄️
Anyway, it’s getting late here so I’ll keep things brief. Cheryl is still working on their new project so I’ll be recombining Former Sweetheart chapters on Monday until we add another project! Don’t be surprised if you see nothing on Thursday for the next month or so, haha!
Also, thank you to everyone leaving reviews, ratings and comments on Campus Prince! We really appreciate it! 💖
OMG it’s already 2AM, I hope nobody was staying up to wait for these chapters 😂 Every time I seem to be posting later and later……I blame the 10000x meetings I now have in a day thanks to school lol. If anyone here just started their second semester like me, hope you guys are having a good time! 💖
But waaah we finally reached Chapter 20 of Marriage!! Officially a third done this novel, woohoo! 🎉
This week’s chapters reveals many revelations, so I hope everyone enjoys it! Please leave me a comment too if you have the time 🥺️
I was reading scientific papers and collecting references for my own paper when I casually checked my calendar……and suddenly realized it was already Monday?!
Me: #%*@$#! I didn’t translate any chapters yet ah ah ah ah ah!!!
Since it had already been 8PM, I ended up translating both of today’s updates awkwardly while eating my hot pot dinner 😂😂😂 Almost dropped my mouse in the soup once……you guys can’t claim I don’t love you!
Anyway, without further ado because its nearly 3AM here:
And we’re back!! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Did anyone receive something cool from Santa they wanna brag about? 🎄🎄
I only have two updates for you today, but chapter updates for Sweetheart and Campus Prince will be up on Thursday or Friday!
The change is because I’ve come to realize that it takes me an ungodly amount of time to post 4 chapters in one-go (since I do the final edits on the website pages itself), so you guys will probably hear from me two times a week from now on. Hope nobody minds too much!
Also, I am still desperately seeking comments 😂 Please, let me know what you’re thinking of the novels!!
And we’re back! Thank you so much to Ko-fi Supporter for the coffees, both me and Cheryl really appreciate it! Cheryl also wanted to thank you guys for all the warm welcomes!
It’s almost Christmas, so I can finally reveal my cute winter banner on the front page! I’ve had this in my folders for 2 years but kept missing Christmas on Sakhyulations, oops. Anyway, does anyone have anything fun planned? My plans are to start writing my papers for school (lol), especially because everything went remote again. Hope you guys will have a better holiday than me 😂. Remember to stay safe while having fun, everybody!
Also, kind of my fault for disappearing so long, but the comment section has been quite lonely lately. Will really appreciate some comments if anyone has the time to leave one!! 💖🙏
I am absolutely so sorry for making everyone wait for this long. I thought graduate school would be a breeze since its more research and less assessments, but boy was I wrong 💦💦💦 My supervisor is apparently working through the holidays so I will be too, but hopefully I can pump out more updates this month as a treat!
Also, I’ll like to give a warm welcome to Cheryl, a new, junior translator who I’ll be training in the coming months! They’re actually my family member who is really strong in Chinese but weaker in English. The hope is that we’ll learn from each other, and that Cheryl’s English will improve enough so they can help me out for my current projects 😂
But for now, Cheryl’s debut project is a short and sweet story called The Embarrassing Days of Accidentally Wearing the Same Clothes as the Campus Prince. It’s an oneshot and entirely translated already, but because it’s pretty long, I’ve split it into a few parts. Please look forward to it! (If any of you have some short Chinese story recommendations, feel free to throw them here and Cheryl will definitely consider them for their next project!)
Anyway, I hope everyone has been doing well and keeping safe these past months! Without further ado:
Oh my gosh sorry for the late updates!! I got bitten by a bug on the wrist, which caused a major allergic reaction that made my entire wrist swollen. It has been a pain (pun intended) to deal with during the first two weeks of class.
Anyway, here’s this week’s chapters! Hope everyone’s summers went well now that most people are returning to school/work, and that you guys had a better start than me 😂
I’m still here! This week’s chapters for all 3 novels are on the longer slide, so the plan is to split them up. Hopefully, I can get out the other two first parts within the next few days or so. From now on I’ll probably split up all of the longer chapters, at least until my next break 😂
Really sorry about the recently messy update schedule, APPARENTLY graduate school starts a week earlier than undergrad. Also, I just had my first lab meeting yesterday and I don’t know if all new graduate students feel like me but I am so lost 😂😂😂 It went by so fast and all I was thinking was “what is happening???”. I already sent my supervisor an email asking for clarification, but hopefully I’ll start feeling like I know what I’m doing soon ORZ. If anyone has tips for new graduate students, please share 😂😂
Terribly sorry but I only have the Marriage chapter for everyone today QAQ. Going through the most terrible time of the month experience I’ve ever had (seriously, I couldn’t even stand up on the first day rip) + my research supervisor suddenly contacted me out of the blue so I’ve been scrambling to self-teach the material she wants me to know before our meeting this Friday ORZ.
Anyway, many thanks to Somebody for the all the coffee! Also, thank you to all those who commented last week!! You guys are really the best!
