It’s Time for Goodbye

Hello.

I will finally, officially be leaving this blog. I’ll do the necessary back-ups and all, but there isn’t anything much that I’d want to bring forward with me anyway, haha. If any of you are interested, you can follow my animanga+ (otome) gaming blog here, or my studyblr here, where I will (try to) update my study logs and reviews from now on. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean I’m abandoning any of my language studies or blogging in general.

I like wordpress a lot and I feel like this should have been the place where I can express my love for languages better, so that’s why I didn’t make this decision earlier, but as you can see there’s hasn’t been any updates here either, so.

I started this blog back then when I started to learn Korean, and then I switched to Japanese and focused solely on that. But it’s been years and my slow progresses aren’t worthy enough to be put on this blog, haha. And also the pending reviews that I have also makes me feel more… tired? Like I have a lot of them to do.

I’m sorry for the negativity haha but I am very tired with university and real life things. I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve always wanted to delete this blog but I’m a bit on the sentimental side that it was hard for me to do, but I think it’s time to let go. This way, I can cut off one of my life demands and just go on at my own pace.

Anyway, I was very happy to know the people I’ve met through this blog. I’m sorry for not being in contact in so long but I hope all the best comes for all of you! ❤ Take care, everyone! Goodbye.

Edit: I decided not to delete this blog because I like the URL and some things are still linked here, so I will leave this blog as it is. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to come back even better. Thanks!

Writing in Japanese

Hello, long time no see. I’m sorry that I haven’t updated in a while. I’m still trying to get into a rhythm for this new semester but I finally feel fine enough to update my blogs again. I’ll start posting reviews and my findings as usual from now on, hopefully. ^^

Review: TRY! JLPT N5 Textbook (TRY! 日本語能力試験 N5 文法から伸ばす日本語 改訂版)

Hello!

Finally, I’m able to find the time to type up this review, hehe. This is the textbook I used when I first started learning Japanese, so read on if you’d like~ ^^ (Also, please excuse my low photography and editing skills along the post ahaha;;; )

Study Log – 18th March 2018

Hello, hello.

tumblr_owpguwwhmo1wu4410o1_500

 

I think I can keep up with the study logs if it’s only once a month, so I guess I’ll stick with that kind of scheduling, haha. I don’t really know what to update here anymore but then again, I can’t bring myself to delete this blog.

So maybe my posts will be a bit more straightforward from now on, or not… Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to:

  • I’ve finished until chapter 9(1) of TRY! N4 Textbook. If you’re curious, here.
  • I posted another Lang-8 post! Yay.
  • I finished a reading course for elementary level on JF’s Japanese e-learning, here.
  • I skimmed through Genki 1 and tried to do their exercises, which was very helpful in seeing how much I’ve progressed and what I’ve yet to know, hehe.
  • I discovered that my listening comprehension isn’t that bad, and I think it’s improved greatly when I played collar x mallice for five days straight before my finals, haha.

I dropped everything during my finals so I thought I had to make up for loss time. I did start watching Gakuen Babysitters and Sanrio Danshi so that’s more listening practice in, though. I think I’m liking this immersion thing, haha.

If we talk about time, I’ve wasted lots of them in 2017. If I had properly studied Japanese at that time, I would have been at N3 by now. But I know, we can never take back the time we’ve lost, and sometimes it’ll be overwhelming to try to make up for the time we’ve wasted. Trying to fit in everything as if we can take back the time is counter-productive, too. I read a quote about that before that snapped me back into reality, so it’s more like I’m starting anew and stepping forward.

I’m happy with the pace I’m going and I really hope I can keep at it, or at least can manage time properly. I told myself that this year, while I will be taking things one step at a time, I also want to be more disciplined in studying, because I’m serious about studying Japanese and I’m aiming for it to be something I can be proud of one day.

Wow, that took a different turn haha. And yeah, I’m not just hoping, but I’m going to make sure I study properly this time.

Thank you for reading and hopefully we’ll see each other in the next update! Byeom~

 

Study Log — 25th Sept

Hello. Wow, these log posts used to be posted once a week, then once every two weeks, and now it’s once a month? …It kinda makes me think as if I’m learning languages only one week a month, and that’s discouraging…

Anyway, I do have exciting good things to log in about in today’s post, so more under the jump!
