It’s here—!!

My copies of Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora came in the mail – finally! (Along with Princeton Review for Biology E/M SAT II test, but who cares about that, mm?)
Light novels – nice and small.

Photo was taken with the Nikon Coolpix S4000 my dad recently bought. Nice to have a camera that we can actually take out on a regular basis. The old one was ridiculously huge and clunky, not that it was bad or anything. Just not pocket-sized.

Off to read, instead of studying for physics AP.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
来た(kita) – “it came”; kita is the past tense of kuru, which means “to come.” Of course, 来た or キタ━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━!!!! is more commonly used to express something that’s finally here.

Throat inflammation. Nasal drip. Allergies.
I hate spring so much.

Went to see the doctor yesterday. Quite quick, no surprise. Have to take antibiotics and spray some weird thing up my nose. Dosage got lost somewhere, so I’m hoping one spray is good. Hopefully.

Today I realized that reading is a lot faster when you actually know what the freaking words are. It takes a whole Japanese period (with distractions) to finish a new page of DRRR!!. It took me around 2 minutes to reread that page. This is very disheartening. I hope Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora will be easier.

That being said, with DRRR!! and Clannad Tomoyo After (Tomoyo is the best!) I think I’ve learned a lot of new words the past few days. Especially words involving making out with Tomoyo…
Anyway, this is a lazy post. I’ll just toss a random picture in.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
辛い(karai/tsurai) – This kanji has two readings – karai or tsurai. Karai means spicy. Tsurai means painful, harsh, or tough. Context, context.

I really wish the success was some really big, but unfortunately it wasn’t. Okay well, it was pretty big to me.
But Yesasia does carry copies of Hantsuki volume one. Ordered volume one and two last night.

Today is Anegasaki Nene’s birthday. Who’s Nene, you ask. Have we all completely forgotten about Love Plus?
No, never. Especially with Love Plus+ looming around the corner…

Ah, I just remembered what this post was supposed to be about. I found this awesome program to help me learn languages.
It’s called Anki, and it’s a flashcard program. Once you download it, there’s already a database of flashcards that you can download and drill yourself. You can choose the difficulty of each card once it comes up, and the review schedule will be scheduled so. The interface is quite sleek, and it looks very nice. Has mainly Japanese cards, but I saw some Chinese ones and others as well. You can construct your own sets too.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
めちゃくちゃ(mechakucha) – messy, disorganized, can be used as an intensifier too.

Light Novels

So lately, due to my joining of internet colorless gang Dollars, fellow Dollars member suggested that I should read light novels to improve. So I thought, “Okay, why not? If a fujoshi can do it, let’s follow that path.” Perhaps not the best line of thought, but oh well.
The light novel that was “easy” that she suggested was Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (I think…). Unfortunately, I can find no copies online, any downloads, or any place to order. If anyone knows where I can order light novels, please tell me.
I did manage to find Durarara!! online, and let me tell you–I’m moving at a pace of 1 page per 15 minutes. This is pretty crazy. But I still want to work through it…

Anyway, while I was watching the latest episode, I noticed Mikado typing “ROMります.” My understanding of that is either “brb” or “afk.” Wandering Japanese people, I’m counting on you to tell me.
