    Welcome! I'm trying to learn Japanese too... any tips for starting out?
    Learn all the kana (hiragana and katakana) many people try and skip this step and just learn using the roman alphabet... but the kana helps with pronunciation and if you go to Japan it is essential

    Also don`t worry about kanji straight away, you can ease yourself into that when you have basic grammar and vocabulary under your belt ^^

    Of course not. All uni students welcome.

    Your 2nd semester starts late. A lot of unis seemed to start last week or the week before.
    Thank you
    2nd semester starts tomorrow ^^ Just finished the exam period for semester 1, hope I did ok

    Being a good student for once and writing an optional essay have had two weeks to write it and just starting it now, when it is due in at 11pm tonight, so maybe not such a good student lol

    Thank you! Are you enjoying your course? What is it like to live in Japan? Sorry for all the questions

    My course is good really enjoying it,
    I lived in Japan for six months last year and it was amazing, I stayed mainly in Fukuoka and Sapporo and they are great cities. I would definitely recommend either of them highly, especially for anyone who is intimidated by the sheer size of Tokyo.

    just realised I need to update my current location XD

    Don't you just hate it when you start programming in the morning and then just look at the clock and think? WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT? :'(
    I wish I had that problem! Productive day?

    My Saturday evening in the computer labs went well...I finally got part of my project working I've been trying to do since Christmas. Now...on to the next step!

    I have 4 deadlines in this coming week, don't plan on starting any of them until tomorrow though. My project for the year is getting towards a whole new level of desperate...it's no longer the **** hit the fan...more the sewage tanker hit the wind turbine..



    Nothing is going to happen today, been trying to get out of bed since 11. Slightly hanging.
    Best thing I'll do today is some cleaning and sorting the birthday cake for my housemates birthday tomorrow.

    So, we have Inter Semester break at my Uni, so Semester 2 doesn't start until next week. Which is good in some ways, but kinda wish to just get on with it. Most people I know are away on holiday, so going to spend some of the week but need to spend some of it going through work for next semester.

    I need to complete all the reading for the 1st week back, and need to go through one of my units that seems really difficult. All the stuff is up so want to look through it all :/
    Also need to sort out my units as I only have like 4 instead of 5 atm!

    Need to work hard this Sem, not looking forward to exam results

    Rep:
    My sleeping pattern is still screwed from yesterday. Anyway I need to summarise the other 3 articles from the American History textbook that I was supposed to be doing, that shouldn't take too long though. Then get back to the damned Fukuyama articles that I've been neglecting- need to have a plan to show my tutor on Tuesday, then a week to type the report up.

    Day two of my weekend off: majorly hanging.

    Bought stationery - a nice book for my new to do list strategy, post its, lined paper, book ends etc. And one of those teapot/cup/saucer things from a charity shop. It is adorable. Not at all related to work but... In fact, it encourages procrastination, stating 'Everything stops for tea'.

    Rep:
    I don't recall posting as much as that :lolwut:

    Oh well


    There is an audition tomorrow for a play but I'm too shy to go. :cry2: I would love to try ... but something's stopping me :sigh:

    LOL

    I got my mum a mug once that says "Where there's tea, there's hope" :lolwut:

    My one encourages work though as it says "Drink up and work on" :pierre:

    Good work! I'm second year, but I have an individual project to do every year for the next three. This one's whipping my arse a little unfortunately...

    Gave up about an hour ago, and went to feed some ducks. Suddenly life doesn't seem so bad!
