We're learning Japanese! I know, I know, it's a big surprise, but we're doing it! ALTHOUGH, we aren't doing it through school. We're doing it old-school style (a.k.a. that means we're doing it through different websites).
The websites that we're using are:
Our mother said that if we got REALLY good grades in our freshmen year (which is 9th grade. I'm still not use to the whole sophomore, junior thing....) then we can go to our community college and take Japanese there!! In 10th grade!! So that is my goal. To get really good grades in my freshen year to get Japanese (and go to college.. hehe!) in my sophomore year. Oh I am so excited! :D
Can anyone recommend any good Japanese books that I should buy (or look into buying?)
Well everyone, have a good day!
Yesterday, Charisma and I made riceballs for the first time! They're really good and we're going to make them again (once we find the main ingredient again!).
*sigh* This month has had a lot of ups and downs lately. Not only has it been crazy, but really loonnnngggg. Hmm... Where do I begin?
Basketball Games. That's where I'll begin. As many of you might now, Charisma and I are Cheerleaders for a homeschooling group. And in a few posts ago, I said this:
Yes, I am still Cheerleading. I've been saying that I don't like it and everything, but I'm still at it. Funny right? But I guess it has it perks, you know? Going to all the games are very aggravating, I have to learn new dances and cheers every week, and my mother thinks that I LOVE it a lot. At some moments I do, just not every single minute. How do you tell someone that you don't like something that they thought you liked?
My opinion still stands. BUT, it's getting better (because it's ending soon!). I think I had a bit more fun cheering for football then basketball (it was JUST SO COLD ON THOSE BASKETBALL DAYS THOUGH.....). You seem my problem.
Mouse Problems. We've had mice problems before, just not like this. You can hear them, you can see where they've been, you just can find them. WHY DO THE CUTEST THINGS HAVE TO BE THE MOST TROUBLE. (Does anyone think mice are cute or do they think they're scary and consider them rodents?)
School. Yes, I'm still having problems with school. I so ahead in math, that I've haven't done a lesson in one and a half weeks. That's a LOOOONNNGGG time. But, I'm scared that if I get a bad grade on my math (again) that my score (which is currently 81% B) will go down to a C (it was very hard to bring that C up to a B. Very Hard). I'm ahead on Geography (still!) and Science (This makes me really happy. Since Science isn't my strong point--it's Charisma's!--I'm really glad that I don't have to do much to stay ahead.).
Tamagotchi Friends. If you're new to our blog, then I love everything Japan and Kawaii. If you're a returning friend, then you already know that! Well A LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG time ago (like when I was 6 long time ago), I used to have a cute little system called Tamagotchi Friends. Mine was round with light blue and tons of cute patterns on it. This thing was my buddy/best friend (other than Charisma). It would wake me up in the middle of the night or random parts of the day when I have to feed my little cutie or play with it, etc. IT WAS FANTASTIC. Then, my little cuties (I had more... :3) GREW UP. THEY GREW UP INTO ADORABLE CUTE LITTLE ADULTS. ISN'T THAT AMAZING??!?!?!??! *calms down* Well, I had a great life with my Tamagotchi. But then I gave it to one of my older sisters who restarted it (saying that she would play it) and I was really glad I gave it to her because I knew she was going to love it!
She didn't play with it...
So I tried asking for it back, yet she kept saying that she was going to play with it. THEN SHE LOST IT. IN. THE. WASHING. MACHINE. I was not only crushed that it was gone forever, but I was also hurt because she didn't play with it. One of my other older sisters (the oldest actually) had a Tamagotchi as well, so I tried getting that one from her, but that didn't work. After several years, I got the Tamagotchi that my eldest sister had and... Now I'm not sure where I put it. BUT I SHALL FIND IT!
The whole point of this story was that I re-found the lovely world of the Tamagotchi's and found out that in Japan and China(???) they are now in color, but they are in different cases as well! I was really happy when I found out and now, I'm gonna get one (later in life).
Happy Monsters. These next few images will explain why I love this person so much.
See? I love that person soooo much. They just make my day. And there is a TON more the author has done.
I think that's about it. I love doing these 'Just Talk, and please tell me in the comments whether you enjoy them or not.
Thanks everyone and have a great day!
You know the little tid-bits in your life that you just want to tell everyone about, but your not sure how? WELL, that's how I feel and I thought, 'Why not do a blog post about it?'. Then I said, 'YEAAAA!! That's a great idea me!'. (Yes I do talk to myself. There are just those moments.... You know?) And the moment that I wanted to share with all of you FABULOUS PEOPLE is the little tear-drop cutie called Hoppe Chan.
Who is Hoppe Chan you may ask. WELL, in short--I have no idea. It's just something in Japan that I SUPER love because it's just so adorable. SOOO adorable. For the January Doki Doki packages, they came with 1 out of the 18 different characters that could be chosen, and I saved a picture to show you!
Aren't they cute? I love the kitty one that has that big bow black and pink bow and the white one that has the mustache and the golden crown. I want one really bad. Like really bad. (I bet you want one too. :D)
WELL, I must be off everyone! Thanks for hearing me ramble on and on about this cute thing. :3
Hello again world!
Lately, I have been obsessing over a box of Japan goodies called Doki Doki Crate by Japan Crate. This crate is filled with happy, happy sunshine. Gosh, I love this box (I call it a box since it is MUCH easier to say than crate, in my opinion).
Do you remember SuperCuteKawaii from the blog post 'Best. Blogs. Ever.'? WELL, they opened up the January Doki Doki box and I love it! I also so a video about someone opening the Doki Dokie box, sooooo I'mmma gonna show you that one! (The video is for the December 2015 Doki Doki box.)
I love it! It just so darn cute and adorable. Charisma and I are thinking about whether we should subscribe to this or not. And if we do, what plan would we choose? IT'S SO HARD.... :'(
Hmm... I haven't talked about my daily life in a long time have I? WELL, I have a 81% in Algebra 1, I have an 88% in Comprehensive Science 3, I'm not sure what I have for LAC (Literary Analysis and Composition) because they won't tell me, and I have a 100% for Geography which is proving to be MUCH harder than I anticipated it to be (DARN YOU GREAT SCHOOL).
Yes, I am still Cheerleading. I've been saying that I don't like it and everything, but I'm still at it. Funny right? But I guess it has it perks, you know? Going to all the games are very aggravating, I have to learn new dances and cheers every week, and my mother thinks that I LOVE it a lot. At some moments I do, just not every single minute. How do you tell someone that you don't like something that they thought you liked? I-I'll figure that out...
I still have my glasses and they aren't going ANYWHERE. Although, I do want new glasses. I've had mine for two, maybe three(?) years now. But, hey, as long as I still like them, they're fine.
Let us move on! Hmm... what else has been happening in my life... Well, I guess not much else. For Christmas, Charisma and I got an Xbox 360 with Forza Horizon 2 on it and it is sooo much fun.
Well, I must be off! I have left a special button for you to click on getting you straight to the Doki Doki crate site. Have fun!
I guess by now everyone is wondering why we don't post everyday. The reason why is because we're either doing school, reading, listening to music, or checking out cool blogs. And now, I am ready to present some of the blogs we just love to look at!
I'm sure I've missed plenty of blogs, but that's all I can remember at this current moment in time. I hope all of you enjoyed looking/reading about all the blogs that me and my sister love and we hope that you enjoy them too!
What blogs do you like? Come on and tell us in the comments! Also, I asked my mother my mother if she would mind if Charisma and I did giveaway's in the future and she said that she wouldn't mind if we did that. So keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway.
Once again, you must travel back in time to yesterday (that's the only way this post will make sense) and as you finish remember that no one can travel back in time (WELLLL, technically, that's no true because you have your memories and memories are your gate way to the past. So, you know, if you look at it that way....).
Tomorrow, yes tomorrow, will be the beginning of 2016. Janurary will begin, school will start the second semester, a lot of exciting shows and movies will be coming out, people will be wishing that the holidays weren't over, and it's going to be the year of the presidential election.
Wow. Put it like that and 2016 sounds scary (except for the show/movies part). I don't want to bore you with why I put the 'presidential election' thing-a-ma-gig-er up there, but this years wanna-be presidents don't thrill me. At all. And I don't like politics much so I guess that could be a reason why too.
I'll try not to think of 2016 very much (how can I not think of 2016?!!???! It's literally tomorrow!!!).
Charisma and I have started our Marvel movie watching! Meaning we've only seen Hulk (2003 version), Iron Man (you know, the one with Robert Downey Junior? The very first one?), and Thor (the one and only Chris Hemsworth is in it). Our next movie is Captain America with the dreamy Chris Evans. Eeep! I am so excited! :D
Charisma and I have been working on collaborative stories together for a good while (none of them seem to be going, if you know what I mean) and I've been wanting to make this RPG board game for quite some time (maybe something like Dungeons and Dragons?). But the question that's been stopping me from making the game (all you need is rules, character classes and a pair of dice.... Right?) is should I make it into a book before I make it into a game (I have made some characters that I really want people to enjoy and have fun reading, but would it be cooler that the characters I made were mentors and went on journeys with the RPG-er's?) or should I make the game first and incorporate that into a book? Yup, I know. C-O-N-F-U-S-I-N-G.
I don't even have a name yet.... Oh well! I'll think of one (sooner or later).
Does anyone have their New Year's Resolution written down yet? I don't (because I usually write it down at night time).
Well, I must be off! I'm a late little bunny and I have things to do.
