Mina san ohisashiburi ne.. genki desu ka? watashi ha genki desu yo. Many things happening. Hope you all remember me.
I've been bouncing like a beach ball lately, trying to get this and that done - I feel accomplished and lacking at the same time. But I'm doing good, and I hope you all are too. I've missed the last 2 PalTalks -- I know I missed out on a lotta fun. I will attempt to make it to the next one...
:sick:...okay, so I did it. over-worked myself in the studies... I didn't even begin to study grammar sentences last week. I didnt' study kanji, either - when I began a study, I barely got past the fourth word on the list. Now it's Tuesday... and the only thing tying me to "studying" now is...
😲 *huff!* *puff!**huff!* My goodess-I think I've just studied Japanese for about 5 1/2 straight hours just now! I can't do -that- too many times... ..but then again, studying that crucially comes across as 'the norm' a lot of times, and is said to build mental stamina and integrity and...
... :atchoo: Diss... Tegzas wedder... *sdiffle*..... Hod d' cold, cold d' hod... *sdiffle* :atchoo: Trying by beth nod do ged sig... bud... *sdiff* idz nod worging well.. :sick: *grabz 'nudder Kleedex*
My husband had a surgery yesterday morning. The incision was about 6 inches long, and they glued it back together instead of putting in stiches. That's a pretty strange concept to get used to. It's very hard to watch his painful recovery... :worried: but at least he is recovering...
I hope yours was great as well! I was sick half the time, tho.. not with flu, cold or fever- just fatigue and soreness that really bogged me down. Last Friday, I could hardly move, I was so exhausted. Literally. It was sort of scary. I wondered if it was repracussions from all the meds...
Last Saturday night, I broke out in a rash everywhere - from scalp to foot sole - and yesterday, my air passages became obstructed in both throat in chest. These events caused me to visit the ER twice. Scary, friends. Scary. But I'm back at work right now. After many times...
"O, Broke-Down Van, Broke-Down Van, on my way to work!" :disco: Right smack-dab in the center of an intersection, too. We had to get out and push that massive hunk'o metal through the light and to the shoulder,and finally to a parking lot where it Bogarted 3 parking spaces diagnally...
I've tried it for two days. It tested me. *Grilled* me. It chastened me. It told me just how bad my understanding is and made me try to answer its hard interrogations over and over and over again. It constantly corrected me and pushed me. I have found the perfect studying program...
"The Last Starfighter". Watched it with my two sons (13 and 10) last Sunday - I kid you not. Why in the world ~? Because Grandmother let my oldest son "borrow" it. With her, "borrow" ususally means "have". So we watched it, and man... it was cheezy. *Sooooo* Chee-Z!! In so much that...
You know, after nearly three years of studying "on my own", I wonder if it's selfish somehow for me to be so determined to learn Japanese if I may never get to visit there or have a Japanese friend here where I live. Sure, I continue to study it because it's "what I want to do", but I also...
Well, this is truly a gem of a service, a free spacing Flashcard program called Anki that has a Wiki, downloadable program and online engine to create Flashcards for memorization use. Only problem is.. I guess, just my own brain. I went all gusto-like and dove into adding kanji, their...
Splume! Another virtual world based on/in Japan! I have not gotten a chance to get in the game yet (after registering, I was having a hard enough time trying to figure out why it wouldn't accept my User ID name, when I later learned that it actually wanted my email address! Thanks again...
Yesterday I decided to go for a Search Engine quest for virtual Japan.. Is there one out there? Well, I found this so far: "Meet-Me" virtual Tokyo! Apparently, it's kindof a spin-off from Second Life (according to some reviews) without adult content. Here's where the main Meet-Me Site is...
Embarrassing and humiliating things happen to *everyone*, and there's just no telling when it may or may not happen. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Today, I was truly tested. At work, our office coordinator railed on me right in front of guest visitors. Cussing at me and...
Y'know... I am one woman who can't seem to type with 'long' nails. Playing a string instrument for 20+ years may have something to do with it. Always had to keep my nails clipped so short. Now the slightest growth annoys me when I type. My eyes boggle at ladies with super-long nails typing...
It'll be a while before I can truly spice up this blog, but I'll try to do it a bit at a time. This is a test post, also the first post. I'm not sure yet what the main focus of this blog will be yet, but we'll see as things develop. Feel free to comment or send me a private message at any...
