Hi all,

So, it's not November. No, my life has become a lot crazier than I thought it would.
I did accept a job in November to fulfill my dream of working in Tokyo, and I graduated university in December.
Since then I've been busy with a whirlwind of preparations and pre-training for my job.
I am really sorry that I didn't provide any updates since my promised return date of November. I really have been inconsistent and irresponsible.
Even worse, I know that I will be too busy to translate once I start my career in April, so I will be translating my final issues (91 and 92, as well as previous issues that were needed to fill in gaps) and <-- Looks like someone has taken care of this. Thank you!) leaving the LJ world. :( (I will leave up my journal so that you can always read the issues I've translated.)

I just wanna thank everybody for reading and commenting on my translations. I know how much it means to you to read Yamapi's words and I sincerely hope that it has impacted you in a positive way. I also hope that there will always be a replacement to continue these translations because they really are insightful and fun to read.

Thank you everyone and good luck in all your endeavors :)

Hi everyone,

I feel like I am always apologizing to you guys for late posts. I must apologize again for not yet finishing translations for September or October. I am unfortunately going to have to take a break until November, as I am busy finishing up my last semester of college as well as applying for jobs in Japan, to fulfill my long-time dream of living and working in Tokyo. Thank you for always reading and supporting me with your comments. I appreciate it very much.

See you again soon!

Amanda :)

Vol. 90 "Borderline"
To celebrate Yamapi's 90th column, this month's theme is "borderline". From his relationships with sempai and kohai, to his "on" and "off"-modes at work, and the difference between "girlfriends" and "friends that are girls"--where does Yamapi draw the line? He also tells us about guesting on a variety show with one of his most famous sempai!
