I’m officially obsessed with Japanese.
Before starting learning Japanese, I was more like thinking it would be useful to learn a 2nd foreign language. For my future job, of course. Back then I was really attracted by highly paid jobs from a Japanese company. I imagined someday I would be in a black suit, walk proudly across the corridor, work like a real professional in a Japanese office. So I enrolled an elementary Japanese course with my close friend Nyoko.
It was fun and eager at first but honestly, the harder it got, the less excited I was. I started using excuses to skip class (poor my Nyoko – she had to attend class alone). Plus I got married after that and had some other plans (lolz excuses, excuses) so I couldn’t finish the elementary level.
However, now I begin with it again. I find a newly-born passion in learning Japanese. Why now? I don’t know really. Maybe because I have quite many free time now? Or because I’m making a resolution with myself to be a more effective and industrious lady (I’m self-acknowledging that I’ve been lazy for so looong)? Or maybe I eat too many manga and anime every day? Or just nostalgic? Actually, I don’t even care about finding a reason.
This time, it’s something I like, not just false illusion about “things I would get if I could be Japanese fluent”. I can say Japanese now is like a cute boy and I have a crush on him. That’s what keeps me going now, haha. I am learning Japanese by myself and learning it for fun. I don’t feel any pressure (yet?) and I’m totally fine with this.
Well, they say doing things you like is a must. Hell yeah, it feels great.
Confession: I can’t stop listening to Japanese songs. Addicted, addicted. If there were an afterlife, please let me be a Japanese yandere handsome good-at-everything boy muahahaha =)) (I’m fangirling so hard).
