I have decided, against my better judgement, to do something I think I would actually enjoy instead of something that would make sense.  I want to learn Japanese. If only because I admire the country so much and find it stunningly, breathtakingly beautiful and if, at any moment in my life, i get the opportunity to go there, I want to be able to take it.

Learning Japanese

by unicornsinbowties

I have decided, against my better judgement, to do something I think I would actually enjoy instead of something that would make sense.  I want to learn Japanese.

If only because I admire the country so much and find it stunningly, breathtakingly beautiful and if, at any moment in my life, i get the opportunity to go there, I want to be able to take it.

I want to be able to walk around my house and just listen to a jdrama and not have to be glued to the monitor to read the subtitles.

I want to converse with people in a different language on the phone and online and actually know what I’m doing.  I want to learn Japanese.

This is partially madness, I’ve found, since apparently it’s one of the hardest languages to learn as a native-English speaker, since its alphabet(s) are nothing like ours,

the grammar structure is different, and there are over 2000 kanji to (somewhat) memorize.

Also, I am 30 years old, almost 31,

and to make such a dramatic decision at this point in my life to learn a language that offers me no real everyday success benefits… seems like an errant choice.

To spend time on this… seems silly.Time to collect resources!
