6 In Japanese learning journey (:/ N2 Journey

A new language, a new world. And less money

#notserious post

I have an expensive hobby. No, make that two.

I’ve completely fallen in love with the Japanese language and I’m starting to get invested. Or more like I’m investing (i.e spending) my money in Japanese stuff.

So far, learning Japanese is proving to be an even more expensive hobby than learning Korean. ):

Embracing a new language naturally means embracing a new world and new things.

I’ve never thought that I can be soo crazy over a story about 13 brothers falling in love with their stepsister.

Yes, you guessed correctly.

I’ve embraced and fallen in love with the world of manga and anime.

Funny how learning a language really changes you – appearance, personality, everything

Yeah I’m totally invested in a story that I may have found bordering on absurdity in real life. But i find myself loving all the messier-than-korean-dramas lovelines and rooting for each brother in turn.

I’ll tell anyone who will listen that there’s actually a lot of meaningful stuff in the plot and its totally not a fluffy, shallow drama.

It’s called Brothers Conflict by the way.

I spent the last few days reading Japanese manga and feeling proud of myself that I can actually read.

I’m seriously contemplating collecting the kamisama hajimemashita series. I’m prone to short term obsessive behavior, so I’m giving myself a mth or two and then see if its something i really want or not. No impulsive shopping. 

Says the girl who always end up eating her words.

This has become such a regular occurence in my life i give up fighting against fate. You can scroll through the archives and see how I swore I totally had no interest in Japanese stuff, how I gave up learning the language and how I professed my undying and exclusive love for Korean.

It’ll be funnier if 10 years down the road my Japanese is better than my Korean (although i highly doubt so), I end up living in Japan and never stepping into Korea again (hahaha i think it’s impossible)

I actually told people that I will not be interested in anime even though I’m learning Japanese.

Look at all my recent entries lolol.

In any case, there is really this addictive element to Japanese stuff. I’ve never wanted to collect Korean novels, comic books, and what not.

But I find myself pretty obsessed with wanting to collect Japanese novel series -.-

I need to sleep this new (expensive) addiction away.

P.s. hopefully i won’t get the idea of going to an 어학당 in Japan next. Now that will be an outofbounds thought

Self studying is the best

    Learning a language makes life exciting! I won’t be surprised if one day you decided to go to Japan and attend 어학당!

    I’m “addicted” to both Japanese and Korean language learning too. I can see a steady increase in the amount of time and money spent on these expensive “hobbies” :-p
