Ahh, forgot to write in my Japanese classes diary again, so I’ll have to write out the events of last week and yesterday for you guys…my apologies for not keeping up!

So, last week we got to cover some more of Katakana, and the vowel lengthening that applies to it.

In yesterday’s class, we received a special textbook called 「若い安い日本語」Wakaiyasui Nihon-go. We also got to cover up foreign words and/or names that were incorporated within the Japanese language, as well writing our full names using Katakana. (Although I already knew how to do that) And the book that our teacher gave us can serve for self-teaching too, besides using it in class from now on, since, from I’ve seen of its contents, it appears to be heavily detailed and well-explained and practical for my learning.

At the end of class, our teacher presented us with a little challenge: To complete all of the Katakana that we’ve learned so far. I must say I’ve done pretty well on that test, it wasn’t super hard, just had to remember everything I knew about the Katakana syllabilary.

concept: i don’t have any deadlines, any finals, any exams. i can enjoy everything i want, pursue every interest of mine, without any pressure. i create and gain knowledge, while sharing my passion with others. everything is good.

Trying something new with a simple spread. P.S. thanks to all of you who gave me advice about my second planner! I’ve decided to use it as a calendar and planner for special events, while my bullet journal will remain for school assignments and stuff like that… // side note: I cut out this pic of Van Gogh from an art museum map and I’m kind of in love with it

some of my favorite spreads from march so far!! i’ve been really inspired by cheyenne’s spreads and doodles over at @studyrose and i incorporated some of them into my spreads this month! aside from some spelling mistakes, the colors make me feel so happy and being able to get creative is such a nice outlet for me while in school 💫

There is a fury to Terry Pratchett’s writing: it’s the fury that was the engine that powered Discworld. It’s also the anger at the headmaster who would decide that six-year-old Terry Pratchett would never be smart enough for the 11-plus; anger at pompous critics, and at those who think serious is the opposite of funny; anger at his early American publishers who could not bring his books out successfully.

The anger is always there, an engine that drives. By the time Terry learned he had a rare, early onset form of Alzheimer’s, the targets of his fury changed: he was angry with his brain and his genetics and, more than these, furious at a country that would not permit him (or others in a similarly intolerable situation) to choose the manner and the time of their passing.

And that anger, it seems to me, is about Terry’s underlying sense of what is fair and what is not. It is that sense of fairness that underlies Terry’s work and his writing, and it’s what drove him from school to journalism to the press office of the SouthWestern Electricity Board to the position of being one of the best-loved and bestselling writers in the world.
