who did it better?

So one of my first grade classes has decided they Must Always Hug me, which is so cute. One day as they were coming into class, a kid hugged me, and then the next did, and then the next and the next and the next… I said to the teacher, “I guess today’s a hug procession” and she just looked exasperated

I remember the first time, it was my very first day and I’d only met the first graders once, and as I was leaving one of the girls ran up to me, stared uncertainly for a second, and then threw her arms around me XD she’s my biggest hugger still

they now hug me when they see me, which is pretty typical for first graders, I’m sure my kindergarteners and pre-k will be similar once they get to know me

but I’m really surprised by this one second grade boy! I get occasional second grader hugs, but not nearly as many as first graders. however ther’s this one boy in particular who sometimes gets out of his seat just to hug me, and then runs up behind me for a hug at the end of class. it’s super cute, I just wonder why? hopefully I did something that made him feel special and that’s why. it couldn’t have been anything more than congratulating him on a right answer or something in class. but it made him happy. or maybe he’s just a hugger!

I once read that elementary school teachers “get paid in hugs.” it’s pretty true!

So I am thinking it would be fun to finally translate/scanlate some Twin Signal, and right now my plan is

  • Moira (Karma and Masanobu story - A-G Gear story)
  • Snow Queen (Oratorio and Oracle story)
  • bit from Code’s history
  • bit from Pulse’s history

for comics, I’ve picked those just because they’re outside the main TS storyline so I’m not like committing to translate the whole thing (which would be fun, but I have no idea how to set up a scanlating site)

and then I have a bunch of the novels which are way more interesting (they actually deal with the existential issues TS brings up but doesn’t do much with because shonen manga). And for those I have similar results to the manga:

  • Oratorio and Oracle’s first meeting
  • Masanobu and Karma’s and The Cat
  • Code’s history but like 100x more in depth
  • Signal And Pulse Get Kidnapped story (which is pretty similar in theme to Snow Queen)
  • Yet another epilogue, but more fulfilling than the crappy ending the manga got
  • Otoi and Shiori
  • and another that’s a pretty great story mainly about Oratorio being his workaholic self and freaking out over Oracle, and Karma being Exasperated. I’d probably save this for last because it’s actually the second of a two-novel arc and I don’t have the first volume sadly. They cost like one yen in Japan, unfortunately those sellers won’t ship overseas…

anyway. Since Code is my fav I will probably translate his stuff first, and the manga stuff will be quick except for the scanning process. This is my plan, but idk if it’ll pan out, I do a lot of sleeping when I’m not working lately haha


In case you weren’t sad enough today :,D

a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…




My principal decided to join him in a photo.

The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.

This Man With Severe Cerebral Palsy Created Mind-Blowing Art Using Just A Typewriter

These lovable cat-themed sweets were made by Caroline, a Japanese housewife. She creates them annually on Cat’s Day — February 22. The cat-shaped sweets are nerikiri: a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing sweet white bean paste and glutinous rice. Caroline tints and sculpts them into various shapes and styles; then puts them on pancakes and doughnuts as edible decorations. They’re just too cute to eat!
