    Superficial? Oh, just a little And could you maybe stop trying to dictate my sex life? ~~

    I'm in Japan for a year; the third year of my course is a study year abroad in Japan, and I and a friend of mine from my course got assigned here to Kyoto University. For the win.

    If I was dictating it then you would have had sex by now my friend (I gots game! )! I'm just running on the momentum of other peoples comments simply for my own personal amusement. Oh and I like to call myself a realist as opposed to superficial! I'm not one to be blinded by love or anything else I've had boyfriends who I felt were ugly just that they had plenty of other attractive attributes. I don't allow such things as love or attraction or even my hobbies to cloud my vision. I look at things objectively so I can say my dad is plainly ugly as are 3 of my aunts and about 11% of my cousins.

    I notice that a lot of people are much more subjective "I love you so your beautiful to me" or they allow their type to be defined by outside forces like hobbies and stuff. I'm just very different in that regard the only thing that matters to me is style you don't have to have my style just a style! I reckon You can still be attractive even if you're ugly.

    Studying abroad is a real opportunity and usually loads of fun!
    3rd year? So will you be doing your final exams this year? Do you have to do a dissertation? My friend did Japanese at SOAS and wrote her final exam in Hiragana she just never really got the whole Kanji thing even after 3 years of study, lol! (she got a 3rd degree)
    So where will you be living during your time in Japan? in student accomodation like halls or are you staying with a host family or even better your own flat type of accomodation? All of them are good in their own way you get to experience different things so whichever I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    Do you think that the gloss of being where you are will wear off? I can imagine you're still in the omg I'm in Japan stage how long do you think it'll be before that isn't special anymore?
    Like I did my study abroad in Cape Town and loved it at first beaches, weather, cool as hell people, great (cheap) food! Then I started earning money in Rands as opposed to converting pounds to rand and life got a bit harder, my job got tougher, work demands piled high and I wasn't really going to the beach and the people I spent most of my time interacting with were Bastards.

    Re: The cnet128 Thread

    No, no, *fourth* year will be my final year. This is just a pass/fail year where I'm essentially taking a ton of little random modules at Kyoto that have little-or-nothing to do with my course and don't contribute to it in the slightest, with the exception of the actual Japanese language modules, and in addition to that I have to carry out a horrible, horrible project for my home university back in Sheffield. (The very thought of which would probably kill me if not for the fact that at least all I have to do is pass it; it won't count towards my actual degree... Actually, the thought of it is kind of killing me regardless. That's why I try not to think about it. >_<)

    I'm living in student accommodation here, more specifically one of the University's two student halls specifically for foreign students. A lot of us from the hall got together yesterday evening and went out for a meal and stuff, got to know each other, it was pretty cool. It actually turned out that one of them knew me from MangaHelpers, which was a little bit of a O_o moment

    As for the newness of it wearing off, well, obviously that will happen to an extent, but I can't see it really happening, at least in the forseeable future. (Lord knows I won't be able to say I've settled in at least until I figure out how to survive here without eating out for literally every damn meal XD)

    Re: The cnet128 Thread

    So you have to do a project... that won't count towards your final degree? Sounds like a big old pisspile of a timewaste to me. Take my advice there is no project that you can't complete in 36 hours so last minute is the way forward! Do you HAVE to attend those classes?

    Your in foreigner halls? lol, that to me is funny! I've lived in a few countries I'm not native too but the only place I ever actually felt like a "foreigner" was in scotland and that's because they are backwards -_-

    How did they know you from mangahelpers? Did you do introductions and then you stood up and talked about doing manga translations online? Or have you posted a picture? (*wonders if there is even a picture thread on this site*).

    Newness can wear off fast as well as Novelty. I compare it to having a huge crush on someone for a long while and then you finally get to go out with them you can be so euphoric that your dreams have come true you don't see any of their faults. After a while though they start to shine through and then that's when you either build an adult relationship and love the person faults included or you realise your dreams were overated. The worse person to be is the one who never sees the faults that just means your oblivious! I don't know if that made any sense... but yeh from my experiences that's how I would best sum it up, lol.

    Oh and try to get a job! Well worth it to get a circle outside of the people you study with and get a different sense or feel for where you are.

    How to survive without eating out constantly... do you know how to cook? If not can you boil a kettle?

    Hi cnet,

    Wow... a lot of question have been asked including the virginity..
    must be a lot of caring people would love to combat your eternal boredom.
    one of your favorite manga is fairy tail right? have u read the groove adventure rave manga? similar author as fairy tail... some character from rave also brought to fairy tail..

    and the story is as much interesting as fairy tail.. too bad that series lack of love..

    how's your life in japan? is it as interesting as you imagine from watching anime, jdrama, or reading manga?

    Re: The cnet128 Thread

    To be perfectly honest, right now it seems like it's pretty much everything I could've hoped it would be. Seriously. ^^

    No, I've never read Rave, I'm afraid. Maybe I should someday... or maybe not. Whatever

    To be honest, I don't know that I really have any "eternal boredom" right now, being in Japan makes every day an adventure, such that I barely have time to fit everything in XD I should probably change my sig soon. In fact, I will. Soon. Not right now, but soon.

    Well, this project involves writing and carrying out an in-depth questionnaire on tons of Japanese people, so I think it's pre~~~tty safe to say it can't be accomplished in 36 hours And yes, I do have to attend those classes, particularly since attendance here makes up a decent part of your actual grading; even if they don't actually count for anything, I don't want to completely flunk them or anything; that just wouldn't be right Besides, word has it they're all pretty easy.

    Nah, we all did our brief introductions and stuff, of course, but neither of us knew the other then. It was only when we were actually at the yakiniku place that manga managed to come up in conversation, and I mentioned that I translate it online as a hobby, and Dan was all like "oh, where?" and stuff, and of course once the name "cnet128" popped up he was all like "hey I know you!" ~~

    Oh, I'm a terrible cook. I mean, I'm sure I can cook, given a recipe and the ingredients and the equipment and the time and all... but even back in Sheffield where I could pretty easily have got all that stuff, I just ended up, like, heating potato wedges and microwave pizza and that kind of thing, because I can never be anywhere near bothered to deal with the hassle of actually cooking proper meals. Out here where I have next-to-no equipment, ingredients are all completely unfamiliar, etc. etc, there's approximately zero chance of me ever actually really cooking anything ~~

    And of course I can boil a kettle. Not that I have one, but still.

    Re: The cnet128 Thread

    Attendance counts towards your final grade? Damn I would fail those courses so hard my uni attendance hit an all time low of 40% and that was with our novel somebody else signs my attendance for me approach -_-

    You can boil a kettle? Problem solved! My cheapskate brother if he ever sends a parcel over from Japan it just has like on pack of sweets in it and then instant some type of food stuff so I'm sure you can survive by flexing you're kettle boiling and water pouring skills. From the sound of your eating habits seems like you've got the student diet on lock down.

    My brother has lived in Japan for 2 years now and he still feels like a foreigner (he tells me this and then begs me to go visit him and wonders why I answer by saying I would rather poo in public ). London is full of people from many different countries but I just see them all as Londoners the only person I've ever known to call them foreigners was a bit of a twat. So I always see the term in a bad way. Would you say it has a more positive connotation? Or does it as the term implies highlight your outsider status?

    The job thing is just because student life is such a lie! Like it's such an easy life and it can be so insular you meet other students you do student things you sleep a lot and have a surprising amount of free time.

    Which leads me to ask what came first the Chicken or the Egg? Or in this case did you learn Japanese because of liking manga/anime? Or did you get into manga/anime because of learning Japanese?

    Re: The cnet128 Thread

    I posted this in the original thread it came from but considering it was a while after you did it, I'm unsure if you saw it. I was wondering if you could explain to me the literal translation of this line from Naruto 420:

    Fukasaku: You've learned to mould Senjutsu chakra... / ...and you have mastered the Way of the Frog to a certain degree. // There's one last thing I want to tell you at this point.

    I've seen some translations say that he was referring to Kawazu Kumite and Senpou, while others seem to imply he was referring solely to Kawazu Kumite. So could you please explain it to me? If it's too much trouble, or if this thread isn't meant for that, I apologize for asking.

    Well, obviously it marks you as an "outsider" (that's basically the definition of a "foreigner", surely ), but it's not necessarily negative. Indeed, it tends to mean people are more polite and friendly towards you (the whole "present your best side to the outside world" thing, along with a bit of "oh! this person is a foreigner who must know nothing about this country! we must make allowances and be as helpful as possible" mentality). The flip side is that it's supposed to be incredibly difficult to be accepted as a member of Japanese society - plenty of Japanese people will act amazed if a foreigner even speaks the language a little, so it is certainly stigmatised inasmuch as people tend to form a lot of assumptions.

    Well, the former, I suppose; I first encountered the language through anime. But I didn't learn the language "because" of anime or manga per se; I learned it because the language itself was so interesting (I can be a real language nut...) Being able to understand anime and manga and the like is just a bonus ^^

    And as for the chicken/egg thing... obviously what came first was the chicken omelette.

    12 classes a week, so I guess that's an average of 2.4 per day. It varies from only one class on Wednesday to four on Thursday. And each class is an hour and a half long, so that's plenty ~~

    It's a trick question. You're not holding any fingers up. You're too busy typing.
