Staying in on a Saturday night should feel weird but I’m really comfortable right now. The cold is not my friend. And just now I figured out I want to learn Brazilian Portuguese. After listening to a short story I decided to start learning sooner than later. The sound of the language is beautiful to me. It was like when I first really listened to Japanese. Yes, I’ll be learning both languages at the same time but at least this time I won’t feel like I’m cheating on Japanese. I’m at a good level with Japanese where I can feel confident in speaking even with my mistakes. I just wish it were easier to read but I will conquer that challenge at some point in my life. I’ll take it in strides.
In the meantime going back to being a beginner in a language with Portuguese means I can possibly avoid the learning methods that didn’t work for me the first time around. Although, comparing both Japanese and Portuguese, it still completely different, therefore I’ll have to change methods regardless.
E: Good luck to me
P: Boa sorte
A part of me always wants to try and go back to making vlogs on YT or some kind of video series but I’m always at a road block for ideas. I don’t want to just do what every foreigner has done by saying ‘oh look Japan does this or doesn’t do that, yadda yadda yadda here is something you’d consider weird yadda yadda yadda’. I’d like to do something more meaningful as well as express it IN Japanese (along with English). ::sigh:: someday I’ll figure it out.
I was told that I needed to stop liking other cultures and studying foreign languages because “reasons”. Does that mean I should quit trying to learn japanese?
Tell them to have a sit in their small little self centered world. Get cultured and learn girl! Don’t let anyone talk you out of seeing things from another perspective~
Being cultured means you can handle problems differently and probably better than those who are not. Also learning languages and using them also decreases demetia in the long run. While they start forgetting things at the age of 60 you will remember more in the age of 100 cuz you can speak more than ONE language that is from a different culture. #getcultured #neverquitlearning
Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English. It means they know another language.
When you start to really know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
