As for the KanKen... I'm honestly not sure. I'm getting like 80s and 90s in certain sections and 50s in others (you need a 70 to pass), and of course the most important section is the hardest/my worst. We shall see how it goes. And then afterward we will go see Iron Man 2 :D

In other kanji news, I've decided to do a project for the Kanjipocalypse, so, watch this space!

Title: Zankan (残寒)
Fandom: Yamada Tarou Monogatari (JDrama)
Characters: Mimura Takuya, Yamada Tarou, Ikegami Takako, Mimura Seiichi, Isogai, Various Yamadas, OFC
Word Count: 1,279
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: YamaTaro belongs to TBS and Ai Morinaga, not me.
Summary: It's right, or it's wrong, or maybe it's both or neither. Tarou/Takuya, Takuya/OFC
Author's Notes: I've had this written for at least 6 months, but I haven't posted it because I really have no idea if this makes any sense at all, particularly due to my apparent inability to tell a story in a linear fashion. [ profile] vintage_belle suggests it may need a "sequel" from Tarou's point of view, but, I guess we'll see.

Haha, never posted yesterday, huh? I WAS TOO BUSY WRITING AN EPIC.

So tomorrow is Lent! I am sure we are all very excited. I think I am going to do a ++ version of what I did last year. Although, I'm not sure how it's going to go with my move.... But I am going to try my best! So, what exactly am I doing? I've kind of come to conclusion that denying myself something isn't really the character building exercise its meant to be (aside from the actual fasts themselves, but even they're not *that* bad). I dunno if that's just me, but instead, for the past few years I have tried to take the direct approach to self improvement by forcing myself to do self improving things (denying myself laziness?). To wit: 1) exercise at least 6 days a week, ideally 7 (to allow for moving); 2) floss at least once a day; 3) prayer before meals; 4) At least 3 pgs of articles or 45 min of TV translation a week

...Anyone have anything they want translated?

And, um, I didn't think I had to say this, but: I am open to any and all discussion, both from people who agree with me and people who don't. But if you're going to try and invalidate someone's feelings/hurts/experiences/anything else personal like that, keep it to yourself. I can't *stand* people telling other people how they are allowed to feel about something.

I have been meaning to say something about this for a few weeks now, but. Japanese speaking friends, what do you make of the first two lines of this song? Because a translator whose work I respect a lot interpreted it the opposite way from me. Namely, one of us thought it means "It's okay to just be who you are/It's best to not say anything" and the other "It's best not to say things like/It's okay to stay the way I am." My opinion has to do with what fits in context with the rest of the song, I'm not sure what her reasoning is (although I have asked her?). What do *you* guys think?

Bought some stuff at YesAsia yesterday due to that I will no longer be able to get the cheap Korean and Hong Kong versions when I am in Japan. Like, for example, I finally bought a copy of YamaTaro for $44 AS OPPOSED TO $200 FROM JAPAN. I also tried to use my YesStyle coupon, but, uh, well. I guess that's what I get for trying to by a shirt from Asia~~

Finally, a word about social media, since my stupid elitist social media friend is stupid.

Specifically what I am talking about started with a comment about Livejournal users not "graduating" to Facebook, but I am going to take the opportunity to discuss some social media topics in general.

All this basically comes down to is, 'Andy, you're stupid,' since with the rest of my flist they already know what I mean. )

I was reading an essay involving Batman when I came upon this:

Bruce Wayne is a Prince. He is the scion of a family that has lived for generations right outside of Gotham City in Wayne Manor. The Waynes have always been wealthy and influential, raised with a sense of noblesse oblige.

(If you do not understand, please go watch Kamen Rider Kabuto and then read this again.)

I never did the year in review meme~! 4th Annual! Yes, let's! )

I finished Chinese! As long as I didn't tank the final (which I don't think I did) I got an A! I finished making that agedashi toufu. Unfortunately, I didn't finish *eating* it. Leftovers, anyone? I finished Kaitou St. Tail, but the end was kind of anti-climatic. I also finished

So I thought to myself, you know, it would be nice to finish all of 2008's prompts in 2008. I have four left I'm *going to write* ([ profile] estirose, [ profile] anzupeach, [ profile] mariko_azrael, [ profile] beckerbell, wait for me~~!), three other prompts from when people gave me more than one, and two stupid, stupid ideas. And a partridge in a pear tree. Which is exactly the same as the number of days left in the year. ...Hmm...

ALDKNFLDJFNKDJFNK. So here I was, at the VSA page in Wikipedia trying to figure out what number episode was this week's, and I see a link to Itou-san's page. Now, as much as I adore Itou-san, I don't actually know much about him, so I went to go look at his page. AND THEN I SAW THIS. (Or, in English, this.) I know it's supposed to be a really bad movie, but Itou-san is in it. Itou-san is in a movie. I just. Wow. Wow. Itou-san.

SO. MUCH. TO WRITE ABOUT. But I have not been doing it.

Mostly because I have been on a fanfic binge of a pairing that makes no sense~ (for me). AND YET. It was like. It had a plot other than the massive angst/UST of the two main characters! There was fighting! And explosions! AND OTHER PEOPLE IN THE STORY BEING AWESOME. It's been such a long time since I got to read something like that. *sigh*

But also because OMG JLPT. Especially because, you will never guess what word was on it. As for how it went... it's hard to tell. I think that kanji and vocab went basically the same as last time (which isn't good because you need 70% to pass, not 60%). But I nailed the listening section (OH WHAT A SURPRISE.) and I actually understood all the passages in the reading. Or should I say, I understood the words in the passages. Reading comprehension (or rather, tests of reading comprehension) has always been my downfall. So, I dunno. I do have to say, I'm sad I wasn't taking level 2.

Also got praised by Laoshi :D

❀Someone PLEASE tell me they have a copy of "V no Honou." PLEASE~ Tudou is lacking, and after the MASTERPIECE that was V no Arashi, I just--

LOOK AT THIS SUMMARY (Emphasis mine):
The volleyball club of Tsukimi High School is about to be abolished, due to insufficient members. The two remaining members, Hayashi & Miyake, are trying desperately to convince their schoolmates to join the club. They managed to recruit Inohara, Nagano, Sakamoto & Okada to make up the team, however Hayashi is unfortunately killed in an accident. Shortly after, Morita, who is a dead ringer for Hayashi, is transferred to Tsukimi High from another school. Although the rest of the volleyball club members are perplexed by his likeness to the late Hayashi, Morita soon wins over their trust, with his enthusiasm and passion for the game. And so, starts their amazing journey to win the Inter-high Volleyball championship...


❀For the discerning RnK fan: "Letters from Canada" is a famous song from 1978, so I imagine that means it is not a reference to Iwojima. Unless, they decided to get a two for one? But that is something I learned today, at any rate.

❀We did actually send that e-mail to Aiba's radio show telling him his English wasn't wrong. Just in case you were wondering about JUSTICE.

❀Having gotten behind on dramas and my "Other Bands", let us try and catch up.

For those not on Twitter, I will update my status:

After several long months, last Friday D9QNKT71 lost his battle with CCFD. Luckily, since he is a computer and not a person, Dell reckons they can fix him next week. He just needs a new power cord, fan, and motherboard. Until then, I'm on the family computer, which means limited dramas this week.

Also, saw the "Star Trek" trailer and it made me SO SAD INSIDE. SO VERY, VERY SAD.

In order to fight my translation malaise, let us try two (relatively) short translations. I don't really have any confidence in my ability to do song lyrics well, so this translation is more for me than for the world. And then, AnS's is REALLY long, because apparently they asked everyone to write a blurb for what they would put in, like, the TV guide and stuff. ...Which, apparently they used Leader's, but I think it's too late to check that now. So.
