had a vacation week; did basically nothing else on the list but pokémon. 7 badges, broke the 100 pokeymans barrier. feels good man.
now running like a rabid ferret trying to make up for lost time in college studies. this ALSO puts all things on the list on hold.
OTOH it’s great for Japanese.
Would it be weird to use text figures (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Text_figures ) in handwriting?
Cruise mode is when you stop managing your life. Oh, you go to classes, do your job and everything, but only the very minimum requirements. Whenever you can afford it, your attention is on something else. Your waking day becomes a succession of two states: 1) waiting for The Thing, and 2) doing The Thing.
the thing might be reading a book, or watching a series, or seeing a lover. my thing, at the moment, is Pokémon Black. I’m not really studying Japanese or calligraphy or training anything. I just do the movements and nod to people, until I get into a spot where I can turn the DS on. Then I turn it on.
well, at least it’s a language exercise. I’m happy that I can understand most of the (kana) text. this counts for acquisition, right? :)
