Hey, Hi, Howdy and welcome to DaToOmou! This is just my meager little tumblr designed to help me in my quest to learn Japanese. Self-study of this beautiful language started for me about 4 years ago and though I managed to pass the (old) level 4 of the JLPT in 2009, I still suck!!! But I’m OK with that. Sometimes I become discouraged but somehow, I keep digging in and trekking right along. Sometimes my life interferes something fierce with my studies, but I always manage to get right back to it. The past few months have been, shall we say …uhm… devastating, but I’m getting back on my feet and trying to decide if I want to/should take the JLPT this year. I’ve only got 16 days to decide, so here we go … AGAIN!!
