You have a slightly better chance of getting into an Ivy League University than someone who's second language is Spanish or French B)

RE: となる usage

I always thought it had something to do with と being the conditional but I could be wrong. I never really understood that aspect of なる

RE: Getting over that confidence hurdle

One way I try to overcome this problem is by talking to myself in Japanese. For example if I'm looking for my shoes, instead of saying "where's my shoes?" I'll say "kutsu wa doko ni aru?", or if I'm hungry instead of saying "I'm starving" I'll say "onaka ga pekopeko". It sounds weird when you're sta...

RE: English pet peeves

My english pet peeve has definitely got to be gangsta talk; it's so annoying and what's worse is that almost every kid in my school speaks it :@ I also can't stand it when black people constantly call each other by the N word. It just seems so stupid. MLK must be turning in his grave right about now.

RE: Free Hugs \( ^ __ ^ )/

I saw that on youtube. I think it's really great that there are still people out who care for others. You don't see much of that these days, especially in New York :)

RE: How to Speak Fluent Japanese Without Saying a Word

I can't even do it right. Are you supposed inhale while you're doing it? Do you have to tilt your head to the right side or does it even matter. Sorry for being so technical, but it seems like a really useful, er, phrase to learn ;)

RE: Most overrated anime/manga ever

As a Naruto fan I have to agree that the story's getting pretty lame. I'll read the manga once in a while but I just can't stand the post-time-skip anime. It just drags on and on. It's really starting to kill my interest, and what's worst people at my school are going on like it's the best anime eve...
