Not much going on...
But I felt like writing a bit of something anyway.
I've been too tired to study Japanese or enjoy much of anything related for several months now, but on the upside I like pop group Arashi -嵐 and recently spent the last of my Christmas money getting their latest album, Beautiful World, and the Boku no Miteiru Fukei concert DVDs so not a complete loss :)
Still very much interested in learning, but it's very very slow going for me which is frustrating. Memory's crap too! Trouble is I want to learn it all, so started mostly with writing the basic kana properly and am still on Katakana.
I'd like to be able to translate - books (fiction is my main interest), tv shows, magazines, manga, song lyrics, poems... pretty much anything and everything really!
I think it's it bit of a lofty goal for me, being ill and pushing 40 doesn't help, maybe by the time I'm 70 I'll have gotton through my fist workbook of Kanji! *lol*
Still, I can't imagine not being interested, even if it is just looking at the pretty writing when I'm demented and in a nursing home ;)
