Fullmetal Excitement

So I have some brilliant news, next Friday I will be interviewing the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist! *scream*

This amazing opportunity has arisen after one of the glorious staff members of Japan cinema (John) unfortunately realised he wasn’t able to make it and so passed it onto me. I am so super excited!!! Thank you John (I don’t actually think he reads my blog? Actually I’ve never read his either… here’s the link, you guys check it out and I’ll catch up later: John H Marshall)

So from the information I have, the interview will be in London with 2 other journalists (I say ‘other’ as if I am actually a journalist!) and it will be around half an hour long with Mr. Kazuya Murata and Mr. Masahiko for the release of FMA 2: The Sacred Star of Milos. I have a bunch of questions already and now I’m just rekindling my love for the series by watching the whole thing again! Why not ey!

So as today is my day off from the shoe-craving public, I am going to lie in bed, watch Fullmetal and write for Japan Cinema and Lingualift. (With plenty of tea!)


I’M SO SORRY PLEASE COME BACK!

Right well I’m finally back! The month of coursework hell is over!!! All I have left is 2 exams and I’m FINISHED with this year!!! So this is the part where I apologise about the quite frankly crap effort I’ve been making in every other part of my life that doesn’t involve coursework:

Sorry guys 😦

So let me update you on the last month: COURSEWORK. JOB, STRESS.

That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing! Japanese seems to be going pretty well, I feel ready for Friday’s big exam. The exams are multiple choice BUT with negative marking if you get the answer wrong, intense. You better all wish me luck! So today I’m going to be mostly going over grammar points (I hate grammar!) Too many particles to understand, so I went and bought myself a super book to explain the lot to me BUT I can’t even understand the ENGLISH words (words like idiocyntasmiplosia… hnn, not exactly that but you get the idea).

Also gonna review a filmy for the beautiful Marcello 🙂


I’m a busy bee!

I really shouldn’t be writing for two websites, have a part-time job AND go to university. But hey, it’s fun (if just a bit stressful!) I am constantly writing, reading, learning and listening.

Today I have revised some of the kanji that we now have to learn to write from memory. EEK. Fortunately they are really easy this week, stuff like 石、川、兄、分、上 etc, which I can do already anyway. Then next week we are tested on a a few more complicated kanji: 雨、音 and then harder ones for the next 5 weeks. There will be 50 each week, so that 250 in 5 weeks. Seems a bit daunting.

At least my grammar lessons are going  swimmingly…

Other than that I have got a hell load of boring, long readings to do for Japanese History and Gender in Japan. BOOORING!!!
