My animation is here! I added the short version because I had ideas for a couple more shots that I wanted to add in later. I wasn’t able to complete the final PV because life was frankly on super hard-mode this week. I managed to read five books and get the “With You” segment released, but the trauma from everything going on set me back a little bit. I will release a new schedule soon – there is another secret animation project that I started drafting, too, so I look forward to doing storyboards after the final PV for Juniper’s Tree is published…then I will post a book review blog either later tonight or tomorrow – and despite the many hardships, I did read a very good selection of books this week: Don Quixote (Miguel de Cervantes), Age of Innocence (Edith Wharton), Torture Princess Vol. 1 (Keishi Ayasato), and Girls’ Last Tour Vol. 1 (Tsukumizu). Not to mention Hatsune Miku: Bad∞End∞Night Vol. 1 (ひとしずくP) from last week.
tl;dr ～ My father did some messed up things that caused friction with him and his immediate family (current wife and their two daughters), so, after that, despite his weakened post-chemo state – he went back to abusing substances and it caused an embolism to form in his lungs. Now, in his current state, we don’t know if he will be healthy enough to have the tumors removed. There was also a downpour of bad news that came from latest court hearing last Monday, so all of this has weighed very heavily on my mental state.
Extra: To see my book updates and what I am going to read next, add me on GoodReads. I have an author page under the name H.E. Rodgers: https://www.goodreads.com/friend/i?invite_token=MGVkZTljOGItMzQ4OC00MDY2LWJlYzItM2FlYzBiZTA4NzAy
