Last night while walking around near Meiji-Jingu (by accident! Yeah... I end up a lot of place by just walking, though this isn't that far), I found an ice-skating rink!!

I'm definitely going to make plans to go sometime!! It's a little expensive, but I think that it'd be really fun to go ice-skating again. I haven't been ice-skating since those 1 or 2 times right out of high school. Fun fuuuun times!!

Last night I met Ajoa for the first time. It was a lot of fun! =^__^= With Eda, we had Mexican food and discovered that the 'main' branch of Kinokuniya bookstores carries many copies of Kimeru's photobook, and lots of other old ones (they even have the first D-Boys book!). Whoa at the ones with the naked girl's boobies on it, and the one with the girl's butt in the air. XD;; It's the first time I've seen a photobook on display that actually had real nudity on the cover! Uncensored!!! O.O (I wonder what her parents think!)

I decided on my japanese study goals for the year, and they are REALLY high. But I can do it!! Let's put this intellect to work! (It's rusty now!) My weak point is kanji. ゛(`ヘ´#) Yeah.. it's WAY weaker than my speech, which isn't the greatest. But yeah... I am really glad that I built in a kanji translator into my internet browser, it's really helped me. ^^ And now I have a kanji dictionary on my phone, which helps with emails and stuff on-the-go. My manga concept is also completely set in stone for my short story submission, btw. I do need to flesh it out a little bit. =^__^= Mum's the word if you ask for advance info, though. ^.~

And, something else:

I'm not at all surprised by the numbers... except how high some of them are. XD;; And how some people have dropped/raised! ^^; A lot of the top 15 are people that I consider close personal friends. ^^ (Though Chiaki, I don't know you so well and yet you comment so much! XD びっくりした!)

XD;;; I'm suprised I'm even there, seeing as I only recently friended you. But wow. So many comments. o_o! Nise, nise.

Ice-skating is really fun, isn't it? *_*

Good luck with Japanese! n_n! My weakpoint is hiragana. Kanji used to be a real pain, but I'm Chinese and I've studied it before, so it's a bit easier now that I combine the two. But yeah, kanji is bothersome~ Work hard. XD

Best of luck with your studies. ♥

And, the manga? Is there any info you can give to me? Since, well, yeah... ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 30th, 2006 05:10 am (UTC)
All that I can say is that, since it's a short story, it doesn't have Taku or Kyou in it ^__^

I'm awful with kanji, too >.< I keep forgetting even what seem like the most common ones... and then I look them up and feel stupid for having to look it up in the first place since I should have known it ^^; But I'm better at recognizing them in reading than I am at writing them! I don't think I could write anything off of memory, except numbers and a few really simple ones like mori or naka. But like, ai or yume, I can recognize straight-away, but I can't write them... ^^;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 30th, 2006 05:12 am (UTC)
I can write a fair number of simple ones or common ones that I see a lot, and read more, but the more complicated ones I keep messing up on, or have to use a dictionary. But the more I practice, the better I'll get! ^^

Much more important than reading, though, I think is speaking and understanding. I need a bigger vocabulary. ^^
dark_twylyght on April 30th, 2006 04:29 am (UTC)
Haven't been ice-skating in a while either, but it sure is fun.

My kanji is horrible too @_@. Nothing sticks in my brain and if I write it down, it usually gets lost.

Just remember to work hard! Good Luck!! ;D
L.impressioniste on April 30th, 2006 05:17 am (UTC)
*hugs* Yay I'm 20 XD; I'd comment more if I wasn't half-dead most of the time lately.

Good luck with your manga! I want to see stuff! :x

Ice skating!!! <3 I haven't ice skated in forever and I'm only in high school still >_>;; I guess you really come to appreciate some things once you leave home.

Ooh, and Kanji dictionary on the phone XD! That sounds really good right now. I wish they had those here.. I'd download it in a millisecond.

;_; I'm not a top commenter but I'll be on that list some day ^^;; Hehe.. I'm such a dork X3~
kokle on April 30th, 2006 05:21 am (UTC)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and I accidentally pressed post comment ;_;

I was going to say "Your goal rocks and I hope your manga concept works out!"

Darnit. There you go :D

Oh, ice rink! Cool! I havn't skated in years! ^^

And, translator in your web browser? I want one too! ;;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 30th, 2006 06:04 am (UTC)

This is what I use. ^^ It's great!! You have to use Firefox, though. (Which is the ENTIRE reason that I switched XD)

I've been meaning to go to that ice skating rink for a long time. @_@ Ice skating=very fun! <3 Gl with your manga~ I definately would like to read it, since I really do love your drawing style. ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 30th, 2006 08:14 am (UTC)
Thank you! ^__^

Really? But you live so far from it! There's not another in your area?

There's a rink in Shibuya I think (which is probably the one you found), and one in Higashi-Fushimi on the Seibu Shinjuku line.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 30th, 2006 11:12 am (UTC)
Why ":(((((((((((("?

This one is just outside of the Meiji-Jingu gardens. It's not as far as Shibuya, since it's maybe a 20 minute walk from my apartment. ^^

I can't remember the last time I went ice-skating. I really wanted to go this winter, but my friends and I kept saying 'we'll go next week'. x3

Good luck with you manga!~ ;D
