What’s up? Week back after vacation is always tough, and this week was no exception. But I used to today totally recharge the batteries and restore my usual positive outlook. So I’m feeling good now.
On the studying front, I’m up to 500 kanji in 2 weeks. I guess I didn’t think it would be so hard, but I was warned so I guess I should of been prepared. 1542 left. I have been totally negleting grammer, but I still have improved from seeing the kanji n sentences and things. But damn its like running uphill on in a fucking river. One day I was busy and I counted to any reps, and it totally fucked up my head. You can never stop. And I won’t. I totally think the best part about being in Japan and learning Japanese is that if I EVER feel burnt out, I take my bike and go for a ride. Just looking around, enjoying the city or the countryside just makes me want to be able to read everything so much. I always come home determined to study and learn. Instant motivation by opening my door.
My birthday was last week and I got so much cool shit from students. I’m really lucky. I feel really appreciated. I realize they would give shit to whatever teacher they had, but I mean the presents were really tailored to things I liked and thought was definitly put into them. So it’s nice. Also got some food from my parents so I’ll definitly be gaining weight in the next few weeks enjoying ho-ho’s and beef jerky in excess.
Someone recently asked me what kind of girls do I like. I had to stop and think long and hard. Of course since girls were around I said look don’t matter, personality(jinkaku-人格) is most important. But we all know thats a lie…But afterwards I stopped and thought about it and I tried to break down what I think is important for your reading pleasure.
1. Independence + Dependence
Sounds strange, but hear me out. I want someone totally independant, but is also totally dependent on me, for that independence. So without me she wouldn’t be so independent.
2. Laid Back
Nothing is worse than a worryer. It stops me from being my chilled out self. This was almost number one. For real friends this is #1.
3. Not uptight
Being able to let loose and have fun is also very important. That doesn’t have to mean drinking everynight, but I mean being able to totally act stupid occasionally. I think that is good for the soul. I try to act stupid once a day, even if its alone.
Always been number one. Some care has to be shown here. I really don’t like short hair, but I can warm to shorter hair if it looks cool on that person. I guess the main thing is showing care. Ponytail everyday gets old quick..
I like a pretty face, but would DEFINITLY rather take someone with a uniqueness to them than a model anyday. Cool mole, cool smile shape, even a SLIGHTY lazy eye can be sexy on a person if it makes them unique.
Explanation needed? No. Am I in the worst country? Yes
I really am not that picky, but nothing makes a person sound more selective than a six part list. But there you go.
