So, let’s say hypothetically I’m translating something in present tense (i am most comfortable in present tense)
And then suddenly there is an EXTENDED portion of dipping into the past. Chapters worth of it.
Do I have to dip into past tense for those chapters? Or do I just put a <hr> in between the past and present and keep writing in present tense?

Who on earth don't think HongKong is governed by Xi Jinping's functionaries.

Tin Tin and the unnamed Chinese Money Plant got put into new pots. I decided I like the look of terra cotta so I’m going to be slowly moving all my plants into it.

TFW when you have ADHD and have a bonsai tree and the bonsai tree causes allergies so you move it to a different room and then it almost dies but then you remember and then water it but then it’s still hard to remember so it’s at a state of half death and you feel awful but it’s been six months so you don’t know what to do and you just persist in this system of the trauma and hate yourself who else can relate 😥😢😭

MWW Artwork of the Day (5/15/21) Yuan Dynasty China (1271-1368) Dragon Tamer Luohan at the Moment of Enlightenment (c. 1280-1320) Polychromed wood sculpture, 104.1 x 76.2 x 55.9 cm. Seattle Art Museum (Eugene Fuller Memorial Collection)
With an electric stare and breath escaping through gritted teeth, this monk exerts his miraculous power of concentration to summon a dragon from the heavens —- in order to capture it. Dragons are long associated with life-giving, spring rains. Dragon-quellers like this one were believed able to prevent droughts and control floods. Luohans (also known as Arhats) were the original disciples of the Buddha and were also enlightened beings —- each was known for various distinctive pursuits and supernatural powers. You can pray to Luohans in Buddhist temples for enlightenment or, more practically, for rainfall and a good harvest. (from the Museum website)

An alert reminded me that tumblr still exists 😂 I’m mostly lurking in discord and on Twitter now. My bad.
