    Friends are there, not me. I'm busy with all the festivities back here.

    Happy New Year!

    Haven't seen much Sync around lately, so I'm just gonna drop a Happy New Year.

    Also, have you been enjoying Comiket?

    Well that's not quite what I meant. I mean, it is interesting that you're self-taught entirely (and, hell, I much prefer teaching myself rather than being instructed), I more meant that, in general, you seem like the type of person that manifests destiny. It's not often that I hear you complain about having to do something, and that you've excelled in programming and music simply by doing is pretty...abnormal. In a good way. Abnormal in that it's refreshing.

    And that's what I was getting at with the whole "programming projects" deal. You're probably the perfect type of person to be ambitious. As someone who practically brainstorms and conceptualizes 24/7, I absolutely envy that type of proactivity.

    'Course, I might be assuming too much. You've got Comiket in mind, so you're definitely thinking about something. I suppose I don't really know Sync nearly as well as I should.

    I'm self taught. 90% of my highly talented musician friends know squat about music theory. I played piano from 1st to 3rd grade, and xylophone from 3rd to 8th. Picked up piano again in 9th, dropped it in 10th. But those were the times I played seriously. Even now, I jump on it once in a while and just play something.

    I'd rather just teach myself everything tbh. Much easier that way, since my schedule is always so packed and volatile.

    Big programming projects are dumb. They violate the fundamental principles of software. Even in 2015, people are still making this mistake.

    Ah, I'd suspected as much, it certainly does seem convenient for someone who's doing music...

    ...Which actually leads me to another question. Are you just naturally disciplined or did were you raised that way? Because you've really got a go-getter's mentality. Which is useful. Hell, if I followed through on half the stuff I said I wanted to I'd be a lot more proud of where I am now.

    It's something that's been on my mind for a while now because it's pretty impressive, really. It honestly boggles my mind that you haven't really committed yourself to any bigger programming projects.

    In the past I've gotten as far as fluently playing Gate of Steiner.

    But yeah, the keyboard's mainly for production. I've always been exceptionally strong in music theory, so it's more for testing sounds and recording chord progressions than performance.

    I'm relatively platinum, more out of worry than anything else. 'Course, you were always the calm, cool, collected sister, so I really shouldn't expect anything else from you. Still, this has gone from jokes as a social crutch to chill the **** out. Go read some H or something. Jesus.

    But I trust you, Sync. Can't help but worry, but hey, if you've got this, what can I even do?

    About Mokotan, I remember that. That was a while ago, and really I'm surprised I didn't make the Mokou connection. I at least knew it was a nickname. She seems cool, tho.

    Now tell me about that keyboard. I have one, myself, though...whether I can play is...uh...I use "Drunk as I Like" (from SWR) as my benchmark. Needless to say...not very good. Pretty much the same case as you, I've been on and off for a long, long time. Though I'd imagine you're probably better, considering you've actually decided to produce music.

    She's a friend who lives in VA. At some point in TCTI or dltms0 I posted a picture of her Mokou cosplay and called her mokotan. The name kinda stuck. Real name's Jet.

    Oh, and I deeply dislike the singular they.

    I've been playing on and off for my entire life. But the keyboard is more for purposes like--

    I'm cool with their antics for the most part. But if it ever actually comes down to it, I'll make the right decision.

    You must be beautifully annoyed.

    First off, what is this mokotan person? You've mentioned them a bunch of times, and also you post their cat. They sound cool.

    Also, you can actually play the pian- Now Sync, you know I'm not just gonna brush that off. Why the hell do you associate with these people if you don't enjoy that stuff? Like, do you enjoy talking to them? 'Cause that...I mean, why even? What the hell do they even get out of doing that?

    Imma feelin' triggered. I'm a type of annoyed that begins with P.

    mokotan painted me a Yukari, mom bought me an Alesis VI49, and a bunch of random people mailed me dildos.

    So yeah, pretty happy.

    Eh, not much. Do some programming, make a few twowho arranges, that's about it.

    And probably go to some parties.
