10069X - Ambition, Revenge, and Wrath

emerging from the darkness...

Green is a good status.

Three weeks ago, my first full-time job finally began.
It's a little far from the job I imagined, but I'm alright with it.

Originally, I was planning to send my application to some banks since it's the pretty common thing Economics graduates do. But my sister was pushing me to apply for an IT position because a friend of hers chose this line of work and became quite successful in her career. I didn't particularly mind -- I mean, career growth is fast in the IT industry and it's something I might be able to enjoy (since I'm pretty much in front of the PC everyday anyway) so I thought, "Why not?"

At first, I thought I wasn't going to pass the application process because I had no IT background at all (all I know is HTML & CSS), but apparently, background in IT is not necessary. So I passed and the company offered me a pretty decent salary too. (Well, it's IT after all)

So now I'm part of a bootcamp with 24 others and things are going well. I already received my first payslip as well.
Sometimes I wonder why I ended up in the IT industry, but I guess a lot of people share my sentiments. I've heard several stories of people coming from non-IT backgrounds getting employed and gradually becoming great programmers or testers. 

I'm not so sure if I'm going to continue with this type of job, but for now I'll need the experience.
It's also a little sad because I am very busy and don't have as much time for fandom as I did before. (That doesn't mean I'll stop contributing, though.) Waking up early is a pain too. But I guess the payslip is worth it. HAHA

A week ago, I managed to make my 100th translation post in tumblr! 
Check out all my translations HERE.

Despite the busy schedule, I'm still doing KuroBasu pixiv translations. LOL
That's because I'm stubborn. I don't want to give it up.
Then again, there are so many translators suddenly popping out so it's the perfect chance to retire.
There are also some KuroBasu commercial doujinshi I want to translate but other groups are already doing them so I thought that maybe I should just leave everything to them?

Then I can focus on doing my job or... doing translations for other fandoms that need it or sth.
I've been thinking about it for a while now, but I'm still unsure what to do.

I released Fura Fura in yefione a week ago, in case you missed it.
I'm doing Kira Kira (the artist's second TakaMido book) but I need a cleaner for it.
I can do it myself but... it takes time and I just want to focus on translating and typesetting for the most part.
So if anyone's interested, please leave a comment or send me a private message!
