Today was yet another jam-packed day of learning Japanese. I’m not sure how I’m going to manage it—I’m already forgetting the things I learned already, it’s just coming so fast. I’m learning that I may be pretty good at kanji, but I don’t know near enough about everything else. It seems I’m having a devil of a time remembering how to simply conjugate verbs. Throw into that a few dozen new vocabulary words and 4-6 important grammatical constructs every day, and my head is about to explode (atama ga bakuhatsu).
We “rested” in the afternoon by watching—and participating—with the Shorinji Kenpo club. It was the first time that I ever did any sort of martial art anything, and it was pretty fun. I can see why people do it, and maybe I will go back and see about the Amgen Karate club—my knee held up okay, though I didn’t do anything to strenuous.
After that, it was back to the dorms, dinner and…studying…
[BTW, I was so busy, I’m actually writing this on Tuesday…]
