Turning Japanese

It is very likely that I will be taking my JLPT this year. Probably in KL, there are very strong rumours that a band I follow will be playing the day before the exam. Even without these rumours, I will probably still go to KL. I have friends there. It'll be nice to hang out.

I need a break anyway.

I've just updated my Japanese blog. I do it once a week. I promised my Japanese teacher that I will present her a journal entry every class so that's why I do it. It's ok but it's still very hard for me to do. Thinking in Japanese is still kinda hard. I really do want to become fluent so I really hope this will work.

There is no other way for me to practise in a real life situation. I need more opportunities to use Japanese, preferably in a real situation. Class is ok but it's only 90 minutes a week. Hardly enough.

I wish there were more hours in the day. Look at the time now. I have to work tomorrow.

Speaking of work, big event next week. I will be working on Sunday. Not really looking forward to it but the extra money will come in handy.

Overall, this year's been pretty good so far. I really hope it will end well, now that the final quarter has started.

Some time ago, I consciously decided to further reduce the potential for drama in my daily life. It's been working. It's unfortunate but there are certain types of people who are best avoided.  Not to be antisocial or anything but some people are best kept at arms' length. Troublesome people are only worth the trouble when they mean something.

I suddenly wish I was this clinical years ago. Could've saved myself (and my friends) a lot of headache.

Gosh, look at the time!
