So I was told to have a productive Christmas half term, but probably not in the sense I’ve decided on.
I’m not gonna lie I have a fair bit of work to do, but PRAISE BE TO JEBUS! for the art of procrastination. Who can blame me for not doing my uni work yet when I got a book called “Japanese for Dummies” for Christmas?
I’ve only really got a love for the language because I watch anime and I’m kinda bored of reading the subtitles. Plus, it’s a cool thing to say I can talk another language.
AND! It’s on my big list of things to do in life, so I should do it while I’m young-ish and my brain will store all the information properly! I tried learning Spanish at school and to this day I can only count to maybe 17 give or take, say “brother”, “sister”, “plane” and “sweets”. Oh and chicken. I could never forget how to say chicken xD
But yeah, I’m learning Japanese and I’ve memorised a little bit of the “alphabet”–they don’t have an alphabet like English does with loads of letters, instead it’s 5 vowels and then pairs of a vowel and a consonant, so NA, NI, etc.
It’s taken me this long to realise that LOL NI is actually like something that means something and not just a random thing from Monty Python :’)
Aside from that, I’ve also spent today learning Biffy Clyro’s Bubbles. That song is a CHOOOOOOON! But I’ve been out of practice for so long that my fingers absolutely ache The tips of your fingers get really toughened up from playing guitar, you can actually feel the difference between your hands. I really haven’t played for months so now I’m digging new string dents into my fingers and owwwww 😦
Guitar, it’s a great habit to maybe NOT quit xD
