I'll be there for about six weeks on a working holiday arranged by the japanese school here. Four weeks at a ski resort in Nagano and two weeks of free time. I was just lucky that Maaya's concert schedule coincided with this.
I'd like to stay there longer, next year I'll be applying for a year long scholarship to a japanese uni. Not saying I'll get it but you go to be in to win.
The trouble is I'm chinese and most people there are going to assume I can speak like a native. Does anyone know where to buy a "baka gaijin" t-shirt?
WOHOO its weekend again.
9 month old topic revived im da man. okay first i want to say that in the next few days ill get the last albums from her that i still dont have.
both single-collections and easy listening. then i got all albums in original IM THE MAN im not a loser I KNEW IT!
i also got 1 poster from her over my bed. i dont have any other posters beside this and a lithograph from ah! my goddess.
she adorned my desktop as well but i removed it due to depression.
yes i know ill fall deep its like gradual petrification.
wow once again a shitload of links to asian girls. i always compare them with maaya so i dont find them very beautiful. when i watch the pics i just feel nothing. not even a boner lol JK JK.
- i leave a mark to be found. what happens after is out of question. -
now about your language thingy. i would never learn a language to prove some1 (who doesnt like me anyway) that i can speak it. its like a 1sided war. with me being the idiot. i know english because you learn it in school and its the easiest language in the world. its also used to communicate with ppl everywhere on the globe. in final fantasy 11 i would say at least 50% of the players are jp. before i started this game i had a better impression of them. just an example: some jp dude there was writing something in kanji. he was writing a few sentences and only the last 2 words were written in roman letters "JP only". why the fuck did he do that? (and not only him... it seems to be a trend) some1 asked him why he mentioned the "i talk down on you" -jp only. some jp player who could speak english answered "because he cant speak english". BUT if you cant speak english and write your whole shit in kanji anyway... doesnt that mean that the ppl who will reply speak japanese? HELLO??? its written in kanji and NOT in the auto-translate-function. ppl who will reply MUST understand japanese. i think ppl use "jp only" just as a provokation. btw with auto-translate-function i mean macros you can actually write a word like "hello" then press tab and the macro for it appears. so when you click on that macro everyone will see "hello" in their own language and everyone will understand what you say. okay there is just english japanese french and german in auto-translate. i swear from all the players from all the different countrys everyone speaks english or uses macros there. just not the japanese. hmm maybe i just think too much about it i mean okay 50% jp players so they have the luxury to write their own stuff. selfish indeed but maybe it would be the same if 50% would come from somewhere else. on youtube i found a video about japan and it said "do you like japan? japan doesnt like you!" and it showed shops with shields in front of the doors mentioning the exact same phrase "JP only" or "no foreigners". i promised to myself that i want to go to at least 1 maaya concert but its not really a comfortable feeling flying over there with this imagination. foreigners who live there say that they treat white ppl with acceptance but still distance while they treat others even worse. i did not mean to generalize everyone. maaya made me go into this forum. i never thought i would ever be in something called a forum lol. here are so many different ppl from so many different places. kazeyomi-country lol. there are some ppl with flags beside their name and i dont even know where that flag is from but you are a maaya fan so i dont care where thats flag is from. i will go there anyway no matter what lol 1 time maaya... or 2 or 3.
i would learn japanese if i would have a gf over there like jigen. or if i would go there to work. or just a normal friend... but real friend. i have a friend that i know for 20 years thats what i call a real friend. okay you can become a real good friend even sooner lol dont worry. atm it just looks like i will go there for a concert... that takes like 2- maximum 3 hours. i consider myself lucky if i will make it so i cant tell you any more plans about that yet. wishes and reality... light and shadow.
life is like dying and reraising again. the thing is... im out of mp. some1 selling an ether? or should i say ao no ether?
i know what you get and because of that im torn apart. you cannot follow my words? my love is state of the art.
OMG.. This is my place. My English is not good. A poor Intermediate level, and that´s all. My mother tounge is Spanish.. and well.. I haven´t been to Japan, never. I never leaved the province. xD And of course, Amazon is not available in my country anymore, I haven´t got any CDs (I would love to have them of course) and.. well, I started to learn the violin, but I left, like English.. just a false beginner in life.

I've been quite absent lately. By lately I could say past few years really. I've done some minimal stuff every now and then, but not as much as I should have, I guess. Haven't even kept all that well up with new Maaya stuff, still haven't heard what is on the latest single for example. So that makes it a reason enough for me to post in this particular thread!
But looking at the positives... I now have a job that I more or less love... well into third year with my girlfriend... I have a spacey apartment although a bit too easy to hear the neighbours... my financial status is solid at a time when job isn't easy to come by... so yeah. The only thing that is missing is keeping up with these hobbyist projects of mine. It was easy enough to give time when unemployed, but all the other things have improved so much in the meanwhile.
So yeah. A random update in a thread that I just barely should post into!
