TODAY I SORT OF LEARNED HOW TO READ. when i first got to japan there was hiragana everywhere and i was like “what is going on what are these words” but now since i’ve memorized them a little i can say them in japanese. of course i don’t know what they mean in english, but i’m getting somewhere!!!!
recently i also learned how to count – ichi, nii, san, yon, go, roku, nana, hachi, ku/kyu, ju. and from there it’s all fairly simple (except for when you get into the hundred thousands and millions, then i have absolutely no idea what im doing). but the point is, i’m not completely at a loss anymore. i mean i am but i’m not at the same time. if that makes any sense.
on a side note i watched the movie Charlie Bartlett last night and it was actually really nice. Robert Downey Jr is just too attractive for a 47 year old. sometimes i think i have problems.
