09:30 pm: I need a vacation to prepare for my vacation...
Winter holidays are coming up fast, and I've finally started to work on preparing for my vacation by organizing my manga collection. I'm trying to catalogue everything so that I know what I already own and what I still need to buy. The problem is, when my computer died, I lost about two years' worth of acquisition data, and now I have to input everything again. I also have to go through and sort out things that I don't need to keep anymore so that I can make room for new purchases.

Tuesday night I took a break and attended a small game gathering, where we played Hanabi, Biblios, Love Letter, Race for the Galaxy, and Chrononauts. I managed to win RftG by one point, which I think is pretty good, considering I only started playing it two weeks ago. I lost all the other games, though (at least the ones that had winners and losers).

Aside from that, I spent the rest of my weekend sorting through piles and piles of manga and entering information into a big spreadsheet. I'm still only partially finished, and there are now boxes and bags full of various volumes all over my living room floor. At least it's noticeably more organized than when I started.

Here's hoping I manage to get enough accomplished in time.

This, exactly. So many of my traveling days are covered by university holidays that I actually would take extra vacation in advance to prepare, if I could. I'm just too busy at work to do that.

Good luck reassembling the list!

Wow, you should show me your manga collection one day! It sounds impressive if you are spending hours on top of hours to enter the information into a spreadsheet!

My current count is over 2000 manga and about 650 Japanese novels. That's excluding the 200+ volumes I'm getting rid of because I just don't have space for everything.
