Yuya Kamigasaki is living the life any high-school boy would dream of: he’s got a house to himself, classes he can sleep through, and a childhood friend next door who grew into a total babe.

The sweltering summer heat and pursuit to stay cool always get me in a certain mood. The mood to do absolutely nothing! Often spending most of my time gaming or goofing often, I made it a ritual to read come August to prepare me for the school year. With those days long gone and finding manga, light novels, and the occasional book non-related to the aforementioned cross into my hands nowadays when free time permits, I decided to start the tradition anew with a different purpose and goal in mind. Finally getting ready to start my new job position in earnest this month and my time going back to what it was, I decided to do something I a little different for the rest of the year.

Attempting to at least have these updates done near the beginning of week (or 2nd day of the month), the opportunity still gives me chance to greet the month of May. Hard to believe we are almost at the halfway point of the year and with my birthday being on the 8th, it is a harsh, but clear reminder that time waits for no man. So what is on the docket for this month? Well, a lot actually….so might as well make this for June and July as well.

The month of March seems like it lasted forever, but we are finally entering April! It is a time for unexpected rain showers, allergies, and for many, Spring Break! Well, all except for me. After getting my two day job schedules shifted yet again, most of my plans have slightly changed, but largely remains the same. What is in store for this month? Find out after the jump!

Can’t say that March has come in like a lion yet, but guess the same can be applied to my own progress. After dealing with the month of February, the month where everyone decides to get sick and pass germs like the plague, I am finding myself slowly recovering from my own bout with a less than forgiving cold. Nonetheless, feeling back up to speed and ready to get down to business, it seems like this will be a pretty busy month in more ways than one.

As difficult as it is to admit, we are now entering the 2nd month of the year: February! After weeks of battling cold early mornings and late sleepless nights, I finally gotten a better command of my schedule and what to expect going forward. Having made a few prospective projects for January that I couldn’t keep (or at least tried to), coming into this month with a clear mind and better time management under my belt, I think this round should be more doable. Time to show a glimpse of what I have on the docket this month after the jump.

Seems like only a few days, but the first week of 2019 is already to coming to a close. Having some time off before returning to the same old grindstone the holidays granted a respite from, I do want to announce some of my future plans for the site going forward. Oh, and if I forgot to say it,

Happy New Year!
