Yuri!!! on Ice is airing this season on Crunchyroll.
I’m still working on the projects on Free Code Camp, though very slowly, and often I get stuck going in the wrong direction. Most recently, I have created a cat-shaped calculator, and I’m still working on the Pomodoro clock project. MLS commented that half the time spent on the zipline projects are actually research, which is surprisingly true.

I’m currently learning PHP (and SQL, but it’s not a language) at work — and absorbing a lot from the more senior designers. I tend to not think about scale, since I’ve mostly worked on small projects, so this is something I’ve been trying to put into practice.
I’m not entirely sure where this will go. When I was asked by my mentor why I was interested in the Learn IT, Girl program, I was a little hesitant in my answering. I am interested in programming for fun, and hopefully to use towards an interactive art practice in the future, and learning web development seems like a detour in itself. But I really am enjoying myself, there are challenges I can’t solve alone (in a timely fashion).
It exists. *I don’t own a Macbook, despite the drawing.
I’m a little interested in motion graphic design (and maybe VR) in the future, but as usual, one step at a time.
Gif that didn’t turn out so well.
Happy Lunar New Year!

Bonus: 心想事成 x Immenseness Ticket S for Robostrike! Hopefully we’ll hunt together again when Monster Hunter X comes out in English.
金猴年到 – “Golden monkey year is here.” Furious Rajang is written as “金獅子”(golden lion), but I chose the monkey interpretation.
出入平安 – “May your travels be safe.”
年年有余 – “May you have surplus and remainders year after year.” 余 sounds like 魚(fish).
心想事成 – “May your wishes come true.” I am reading 心想 as “heart’s desire.”
I went to the international premiere of the Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy and the Beast at the Toronto International Film Festival! This one was probably my favourite so far out of all his films, though I really enjoy Summer Wars as well.
He mentioned that between his last film, Wolf Children, and this one, his wife and his wish for a child came true, and that was one of the reasons that The Boy and Beast was made. While Wolf Children concentrated on the bond between mother and children, this one was very much fathers and sons. The film has a lot of heart, heavy in some places, but light throughout.
I also recently went to the Art Gallery of Hamilton, but I didn’t have a lot of time to see the art, as we were there for a wedding. We stopped for foot-long hot dogs and didn’t have enough time to explore the gallery before it closed. XD
A CTRL-A kind of wedding~ The centrepieces and place cards were made by Maplerose.
Monster Hunter Club (モンハン部) creed, as translated by gaijinhunter. Just wanted to make it into a poster.
I went to a “Introduction to User Experience” workshop run by the lead designer at Wattpad(!), and tried out empathy mapping for the first time. He mentioned that designers at Wattpad often have to “wear many hats”…and I felt a bit relieved, hearing that from a more experienced designer.
