My boyfriend and I are trying to save up so we can rent a new place and get married, so we have been working hard on a new project: Japanese Learning Printables, which we’re selling on Etsy. He’s a professional graphic designer and I have been teaching languages since 2003, so we decided to put our professional skills together and design some products that we hope Japanese learners will find useful.
This bundle contains eight different printables in PDF format, both in A4 and letter size. Colour and black and white versions are included.
There are New Kanji blank sheets for you to practice kanji, with spaces for mnemonics, stroke order, on’yomi and kun’yomi, example sentences and more. Language Exchange sheets allow you to document new vocabulary and phrases, as well as cultural points as you participate in language exchange, meaning you get more out of your experience and can review afterwards. There’s also space for feedback for your partner and goal tracking.
To increase productivity you can track your reading and study hours with these Reading Log and Study Log pages.
To keep track of new words or compounds you can use our New Vocabulary sheet, with space for readings, example sentences, so you can lean in context, and review tracking included. Learning in real-life context is particularly difficult for self-studiers, so with this in mind we designed this Grocery List printable, which you prepare at home, as you would a normal list, then take shopping so that you can use Japanese in context, even if you’re in a non-Japanese environment. Also included in the Language Study Printables Pack 1 are Anime Log and Drama Log trackers, where you can note down examples of words in context you encounter when watching Japanese TV, track where and when you heard them and monitor your reviews.
Designed with self-studiers in mind, these packs cover basic to advanced Japanese, including topics on your interests, memories, goals, as well as your opinions on a variety of current events, cultural points and social issues.
Each pack contains 31 unique language prompts, one for every day of the month.
Beginners Journal Prompts should be good for self-studiers who are at around JLPT N5/N4 level, or who are working through Genki I and II. Topics include writing about your environment and interests, whilst giving you opportunities to use beginner level grammar and vocabulary. An English translation cheat sheet is included to help you if you get lost.
Intermediate Journal Prompts would best suit those at about JLPT N3/N2, or working through a textbook like Tobira. Topics include writing for different purposes, talking about culture, re-telling anecdotes and expressing your opinions. An English translation cheat sheet is included to help you if you get lost.
Advanced Journal Prompts are designed for those at N2/N1 JLPT level, or beyond. They are written by a native Japanese speaker and are designed to help you create independent texts on engaging and relevant topics, whilst using advanced language skills such as persuasion, criticism, and expressing nuanced opinions that often appears at this level.
We really hope that you will take a look at LanguagePrintables on Etsy and favourite our store. We put a lot of thought into making these as useful as possible, and so we would very much appreciate your support through buying or simply reblogging this post.

Do you secretly take pleasure in putting your reader and characters through literal hell? Do you love tearing people to shreds, ending relationships, killing characters bloody? Yeah us too!
Angst is hard to write. It is plot driven and you have to know your characters well to really make people feel what they are feeling. Angst is an underappreciated skill or at least so we think. That is why we have decided to host Angst Appreciation Day.
June 23rd we want to flood tumblr with heart wrenching angst. We want laptops to drown in the tears of the readers. We want to break hearts and cackle while doing so. Who’s with us?
If you love writing angst. If you love making angsty aesthetics. If you love making angsty videos - this is the day for you.
If you are an artist you can make:
FanArt (Drawings, manips whatever)
Anything at all
If you are a writer you can write:
Anything at all
You can collab as a writer with an artist or another writer. You can team up however you want or you can go solo and do whatever your little black heart contents.
There are only a few rules:
Use the # SPN Angst Appreciation Day 2017 - Do this so we got everything in one place and so that everyone can find your amazing work!
All fics must be posted on June 23rd. Don’t worry about timezones though. If it is June 23rd where you are it goes.
Use warnings! Not so much so you spoil your fic but warn for triggers and write them in your tags if you feel better about that.
For the love of Chuck use the Keep Reading feature for anything above 500 words.
All pairings, ships, reader inserts, OCs are welcome - it has to be for the SPN Fandom though.
Actor fics are welcome. AUs are welcome. SPN verse character fics are welcome. Anything goes here people.
No sign-ups. All are free to join. We would greatly appreciate a reblog of this post though - Ya know for signal boost :D
can u pls tell us about the day you fell for taetae? <3
Jimin: It was when he invited Hobi and I to his play because the others were already in their dorms and we had just finished our class. I was super tired and was just ready to go home but Hobi insisted that we should go because Tae is expecting us. So of course we go…what I didn’t expect was him taking the role of Hamlet.
Jimin: Well Hobi fell asleep as soon as we got seats. I was so amazed at his skills. His emotions…was amazing. It felt like we were both in the spotlight. It was just the two of us in that auditorium and I was able to see a second side of him. I was in love…
I WAS going to draw an entire comic based on the new movie, buuuut these seemed more fun ATM and they’d fit better into the theme anyway, so have some TOS AU ft. Trouble with Tribbles! :3 What’s funny about Star Trek is most episodes could honestly fit into the Voltron universe? The whole Space Travel to bring peace to many worlds is very compatible uwu But I also wanted to play with who would get what color (since I’ve seen others doing the same) so Star Fleet uniforms for everyone! And Galra!Keith makes an appearance again X’’D (Yes Allura’s the Captain!)
As for the crossover portion…
Have two half-aliens (theoretically, in Keith’s case) who cannot understand jokes for the life of them ;w; Also, Gravity Falls reference ahahaha is it crossovery enough yet??
((OOC: Can I just talk about what a blessing Andy, KP, and TT are?
KP, it was soooo sooo wonderful to finally meet you in person. Your curls are out of this world wonderful and I loved your hugs so much. You have this wonderful spirit to you, being sweet and quiet; but that fiery piss and vinegar side to you that has no problems making itself known is something I completely adore about you. You’re the bees knees and you always will be, you wonderful being.
Andy, it was so nice to see you again. I just love you so so much. You’re such a handsome human and I love listening to your intensely animated stories. I love your boldness and your kindness. I also very much enjoyed the delicate procedure of replicating hugs from Lundy and Andy( @girlswillbeboys11@lundayy ), and I am in awe of your skills everyday. I’m so glad we are friends and I’m lucky to know you Andy Gray.
TT, I wuuuuv you! You’re so kind to have sheltered and fed us all. Providing endless entertainment is hard but you certainly have a knack for it (especially at all hours we should be sleeping). You’re so clever and kind and just straight up beautiful in all aspects of the word. You have changed my life in so many ways and I’m better for knowing you. It is my sincere desire that you keep loving life and yourself and what you do. Because you’ve more than earned it. You are spectacular, and I love you very very much.))
Warnings: Mild swearing, takes place in a strip club
Word count: 892
Request: by @insanitycreatesmonsters Please can you write this one shot for me!!! So I had this idea of the avengers needing to recruit people for this mission, and tony knows a girl who is as good as natasha who is working undercover at basically a strip club type place. And so they all go there to find her yet tony only says something like you’ll know her when you see her about her appearance and bucky ends up finding her first but with the style of the song ‘Guys My Age’ by Hey Violet when the bass drops. Thankss!!! xxx
A/N: Sorry it’s so short but I hope you like it!
“Natasha is still injured from our last mission, so we are going to need someone with similar skill sets who would be available to join the team for a short time. Does anyone have any recommendations?” Fury questioned with his powerful voice. The whole team was stationed in the mission briefing room. In two days we were leaving to shut down a small hydra op in the Canadian wilderness.
Thinking over Fury’s question, we all looked at each other seemingly not coming up with any ideas. That is until Tony’s eyes widened and caught all of our attention.
“Oh, I think I’ve got someone” Tony beamed. “Her name is Y/N L/N and I’ve seen her in the field before. She’s practically unstoppable. The last I heard was that she was undercover, but I’m sure she’d be able to help us out for a few days if our good pal Director Fury here could track her down for us” Tony smirked. I, for one, was a little shocked that Tony actually had a good idea. Fury agreed to his plan and set out to find whoever Y/N is.
While Fury did his research to find Y/N, the rest of us went into the common area to watch some TV and hang out.
“So Tony, what’s Y/N like?” I asked him, suddenly becoming curious of the new woman who I would have to spend quite a bit of time with.
“Completely badass, stubborn, and incredibly charming which is odd to say about a professional assassin” Tony stated. He seemed pretty fond of the girl.
Just then Fury burst into the room and ordered everyone to get dressed. She was working undercover somewhere downtown. We were heading out to find her.
The van screeched to a halt in front of a slinky, low lit building. We were in an area of the city that I had never been to before, which was saying something, because I grew up here. As we all got out of the car and approached the building Steve shot me a confused look. I shrugged back at him and continued forward with the rest of the team.
“Alright everyone, I need you to split up and try and find her. She’s in there somewhere” Fury stated and then started towards the door. I went to follow Fury until I remembered something.
“Hey Tony, what does she look like? I’m gonna need to be able to recognize her somehow.”
“Trust me kid” Tony said and clapped me on the shoulder. “You’ll know her when you see her.”
What does he mean? Whatever I guess I’ll find out.
As I opened the door to the building, the immediate smell of alcohol was shocking. Low rhythmic music flowed throughout the surprisingly large space and women with glitter under their eyes danced on stages. They were also just barely clothed. It was hard for me not to stare, but in my defense no one had prepared me for this.
I was raised in a time when seeing a girl in a one piece bathing suit was sports illustrated worthy. Yet, here I was surrounded by beautiful, half naked women. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t affected at least a little by their presence.
Steve looked at me from across the room with severely reddened cheeks. His eyes were wide and I’m sure mine looked the same. Soon Tony grabbed Steve by the collar of his shirt and dragged him to the other end of the floor.
As I slowly adjusted to my environment, I began to scan the room for someone who I believed could be Y/N but no one in particular caught my eye. That was until I moved toward the back of the room. That was her.
The song changed as she came into view. It was slower and more seductive. Her hips swayed to a different rhythm and her leg hooked around the pole to her right as she swung to the ground. She gracefully rose back up and her eyes met mine. Must’ve caught me staring. She winked seductively and resumed moving her body in ways I didn’t think possible until that moment.
The curves of her body and the way her hair fell made her absolutely breathtaking. Everything about her drew me in. The heat rose to my cheeks as the bass of the music vibrated the floor.
I approached the stage and Y/N held out her hand for me to take. I was confused for a moment before she hopped down from the stage and used my hand for support. She looked me up and down and smiled.
“So, you must be James. Fury called and gave me a briefing about the team” she smirked keeping up her attitude from on stage, but speaking to me low enough that no one would hear her. She was undercover after all.
“Uh Bucky” I stuttered out.
“Hm?” she questioned.
“Call me Bucky” I said slowly gaining some confidence.
“Alright Bucky. Let’s get out of here before we draw any suspicion” she whispered with a smirk. Y/N gripped my hand and pulled me towards the exit still maintaining her attitude. As I got another good look at her all I could think was holy shit I’m in deep.
AU: in which BangDae got paired up for the pepero game
Daehyun laughs when he picks Yongguk’s name. He leans
forward and looks over to catch Yongguk’s reaction, or lack thereof. The leader
is looking straight ahead, a controlled smile on his face as he nods to the
camera. Youngjae sitting in the center is already groaning in secondhand
“This will be the worst thing we’ve ever
done,” he says.
Now that I think about that part of my education, I often wondered what benefit my teachers thought I’d get from learning how to address a baroness or how to dance a late 18th century regency ball quadrille.
As it turns out, as I sit here writing a period style romance novel, quite a lot.
