Be sure to take a look at...
My profile gives more info on my jewelry-making hobby (that I hope to turn into something of a career.)
As soon as it crossed my mind to post this, I was thinking of ways I could incorporate language into my jewelry. Brainstorming session coming up... :)
I had originally left this blog to form a new one: LanguagePetals. I guess my intention was for it to be a replacement language blog, but sort of became an everything blog for my interests. Looks like my last post was Christmas 2015 - must've been the year I decided I was tired of blogging. ha!
Anyway, if interested in seeing some of my language learning musings from that blog, just check out the CATEGORIES on the left sidebar.
I no longer update that blog. :)

I decided to revive this blog last night. I still love learning languages, but it's been a while since I've really concentrated on any of them. I might drop a few, because I really am trying too many, but I'll talk about that in another post. :)

My short stint in Japanese and Korean wasn't all in vain, because I did learn a few things. The Korean alphabet is called Hangul in South Korea. There's also Hanji, which are Chinese characters used in Korean, but apparantly you can get by without learning them, unlike in Japanese, where you have to learn kanji if you want to get past a child's level in the language. In fact, I've heard that if you only stuck with hiragana and katakana (Japanese has three alphabets - or "scripts" to be more accurate), you'd pretty much be limited to things like children's books. That would be fine with me. I'd feel pretty accomplished if I could even just read children's books in Japanese + I'm sure Japanese children's books are pretty cute.
Another thing I will always remember is that questions in Japanese end in desu ka? I also like Japanese classical music (really Oriental classical music in general), some of which I added to my Spotify. And who knows, maybe I will at least learn how to say certain phrases in Japanese and Korean. Finally, a little over ten years ago, I had a gerbil who I gave the Japanese name Sumiko. Her companion was named Antoinette. :)
