[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Making a Crumb into Bread – Part 3 – The End of Exploration (For Now) and…a plan?

Wow. Just, wow. I had this really dinky list of books I had at hand, since the rest were packed and a handful of cool websites from Nihongo-e-na! during part 2. Now I have this monstrous list (compared to before) full of MANY more books and SOOOO many more websites! I don’t even like sharing

[JAPANESE | REVIEW] Nihongo-e-na

With my previous entry (which was originally written about a week or two ago, but not posted until earlier today), I mentioned about how I was clueless on what Japanese study materials were available to me during my in-between and down times of learning the language. One of the things I really needed to check

[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Can I Get Back to Japanese?

Between being restricted to playing only my 3DS while my other gaming systems are packed away and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire being released, I have had that frustrating feeling I sometimes get about wanting to get back to studying Japanese.

[JAPANESE | RAMBLES] Learning Realization

Sometimes when people ask me where to start learning Japanese, I immediately say “learn kana”. I actually honestly swear by this advice because, to me, it has been the most helpful for numerous reasons, including my visit to Japan back in 2010. However, I notice I forgot something…

Japanese Relit

The last time I sat down and studied any Japanese was back at the end of November for the JLPT. Prior to then, it was way back in July, I believe, that I did anything related to studying Japanese. Needless to say, I’m very rusty right now and for a while, I haven’t had the

I want these back.

I hate that everything I was interested in now seems to be shot. I want it back. I want it all back now. It doesn’t even have to be as intense as it was before, but just there enough to actually make me want to immerse myself in them. To work on them. To draw

A Reminder of Progress

Just this morning, one of my friends tagged me in a fan art they found somewhere on the Internet on Facebook. It was a 4 panel comic featuring Ash Ketchum and N, both from the Pokémon franchise. The comic itself was in Japanese. While I initially glanced over the comic and came into conclusion I

Oh, geez. I don’t even know where I should begin. The Japanese? The Classes? The Village? I just don’t know!

Its been over two months, I believe, since I last wrote on here! It was only going to be a month originally, I believe, but I got so busy, I completely lost motivation to write my blog! I feel really bad because I told this really pretty blonde lady at a shop I visited about

Final Stretch! FINAL STRETCH!!!!

Oh, I remember working on Lesson 7 and feel like it was taking me forever to get to the next lesson. I recall flipping through the next three lessons, being super excited about learning short forms and 〜たい (want) form. Each time I found myself getting distracted and fell into doing other, arguably less important,

Alone New York Trip #2

So, the day before yesterday, I decided that I would got to New York City on Friday (which was yesterday). It should be obvious that I do like NYC. Quite frankly, I needed a huge break from being inside the house. I think I could actually use two more days, but oh well. There’s nothing
