1. I'm really sorry for the late reply! I wasn't expecting such a quick answer... I'm a beginner. Total noob hahahaha! It's just, the more I see JoJo fanart, the more tempted I want to learn the language... But also cause of other reasons. Wanted to learn it for a long time but never had the time ;w;

    No worries! Anyway, I think the best place to begin studying Japanese is from the written system. Most textbooks and online sites will write everything in hiragana/katakana so you may as well learn those first of all. Hiragana is the most important so I’d start there.
    http://www.yosida.com/en/hiragana.html
    This website lets you hover over the character to learn the proper stroke order. I 10000% recommend learning things according to the stroke order to make your life easier down the line. After you master hiragana, you can learn Katakana, which isn’t so hard since many of them are very similar.

    To learn, pick a few lines at a time (the vowel line and K- line) and write them over and over while saying the sounds until you can remember them. For self-learning Japanese, I don’t have any amazing advice or anything since I only self-taught myself the writing system, I took classes after that to learn the basics so I’m not sure how one would best study that by themself.

  4. Send this to someone you love without context.

  5. I just found this video and I love it because it perfectly encapsulates how I think Kakyoin would actually dance. (with his two awkwardly colored clones)

    I love you, my gay weeaboo trash baby.

  6. "I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

    Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”"

    P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

  9. A summary of the weekend

    • The awesome yearly all-lady BBQ rooftop party was rained out (seriously, right after my summer vacation got storm’d out?? and the yearly fireworks party that i had plans to meet my old neighbors at??)
    • someone vandalized my bicycle yesterday (removed the air valve thing? thanks jerk..)
    • today my shoulder dislocated itself when i was doing something NOT EVEN CLOSE TO PHYSICALLY CHALLENGING and i fell into my trash can writhing in pain for like ten minutes lol. (but it popped back into place so i’m in terrible pain but I’m okay, no hospital visit necessary.)

    I’m not having the best luck recently. seriously. call an exorcist.
