This is Gisselle, a.k.a kodochalover.
I've been away for so so long. Too long, honestly. I've fallen behind in regards to the life and progress of JUMP. Although I thank chocokuu
for keeping me up to date on a daily basis with the fandom xD Also i'm grateful for ithachan
for finishing up a project I could no longer work on. sarachii
Now, for my main content; I am returning as a translator.
I really do apologize for being away for so long. There was a lot of drama in my life. People who were close and dear to me didn't appreciate that I spent so much time within the fandom so my heart grew apart from it. I regret ever distancing myself from translating and following the fandom because it was something that filled my heart with joy on a daily basis. Also, I was working hard through classes and my job that my free time allotted to translating simply vanished.I grew older and lost some people and found myself wondering; "What happened to that old me who spent so much time, enamoured by her fellow fan girls and JUMP members?" and while i thought about it more and more I found myself missing it all.
In vulgar terms, in the end I decided to say "F**k it" to it all and just went with doing what I want to do. Hence why I am here today, typing up this long, overdue post as to why I've been away for so long.
Returning as a translator won't be easy. I realize that there's new translators out there who I'd love to work with and become friends with. Also, I noticed that the sharing of scans has become rare, meaning that finding magazines to translate won't be very easy for me. I have stores near me that sell the magazines but then that becomes a separate issue involving money lol
I'm hoping to re-learn my ways around the fandom because honestly I'm kind of lost right now haha It's been 2 years now I believe since I stopped translating. For all I know, this post will most likely go unnoticed T^T lol
Anyways, I really did miss everyone and I'm so sorry I was away for so long. I want to know how everyone has been. What kind of new things have you accomplished? Did you finish school? Are you leading a lovey dovey life? xD I hope everyone has been well and hopefully, as soon as I figure out my source of translation material I can come back.
