日本語:

PARTY HARD!!!!
Is a time consuming language.

And worse still, I've been neglecting my efforts.

Hug me.

-hugs-

Thanks for reminding me that I need to study katakana before school starts back.

It took me longer to learn 영어.
If people learned from their mistakes, there wouldn't be this thing called bad habits.

You had some in your title for a little bit, though I forgot what it said.
You're right.

Besides, 官话 is much better.

"Nihongo", or the Japanese language.
PARTY HARD!!!!
The kanji are what're really getting me.

I can read the ひらがな and the カタカナ quite fluently, at least. And I can watch sub-title-less anime and have a vague idea of what's happening.

Still a long way to go.

The Kanji was the easiest part for me...

@Rocket: Put that through Google translate or something.

When I took Japanese in college, we had a week to get hiragana and another week for katakana. If you hadn't mastered it by then you'd fall behind.

I actually gave up on the language completely because of kanji. Playing an RPG in Japanese is helping a lot though, at least in terms of words like "physical attack" and "magic defense".

Learning the radicals and what they mean can be very helpful. Otherwise, you just need to practise using them on a regular basis.

^I snagged them first, but it's still the most challenging part.

^^Huh. I had both down in three days.

Well, see, I'm good with kanji so far because I've had one semester and only know like 14 of them. I think next semester is when they get difficult.

On the other hand they have words like "woodsea" which cause you to run around looking for the ocean instead of a forest. And the tree radical is in everything anyway, don't deny it.

^^Oh yeah, I forgot about the NES emulator.

^That's for anything past NES. I tried one for SNES though (Terrenigma) and I did pretty well.

Ah, most of the RPGs I played in Japanese are from the SNES era. Still learned some Japanese from Dragon Quest when I was a kid, stuff like ホイミ and メラ.

ホイミ isn't a word though.

I like using PSX dating sims. You can read the text along with voice acting, which is nifty if you have a good vocabulary.

^That's weird. I ran it through a translator and I got this: イミ

I'm so ashamed of this because I feel like a weeaboo, but I've picked up on a lot of the hiragana and katakana just by looking at Nico Nico Douga and Pixiv a lot.

That's my odd confession of the day.

Lawl. I'm sure that will be useful in Japan.

It's funny, I was just working on my Japanese. Earlier this week I picked up a book with "dirty" Japanese phrases and words for the hell of it.

I'm in my second year of it in college. I'm doing fine in terms of grades (I do great on the tests), but it still feels like I'm not getting it down. I could use a Japanese friend to talk to or something.

In my 400 level linguistics class on syntax, I think at least half the class are Japanese students. It's pretty funny.

Oh, I still need to research study abroad programs. The applications for some of the ones in the summer are due pretty soon, and I have no idea what I want to do.
Ruining everything forever.

It is to me!

In case anybody's wondering, those are the basic healing and attack magic spells of Dragon Quest.
