Why Haven’t I Done Anything in a Long Time?

Because I got a job writing and translating for RocketNews24!!

This has been a really exciting and thrilling time for me.  I never thought I’d get to do something like this.  As such, every month, I’d like to share a link to my articles with RocketNews24 – the topics are often silly and fun, but I guess that’s the kinds of things I want people to engage with anyway (including anime lyrics).

I will get back to translating lyrics soon, but in the interim, please check out my writing with RocketNews24 and share the articles if you like them!

Thanks *^_^*
