I find going to the hairdresser embarrassing and awkward :S
im always paranoid that the hairdresser thinks the hair cut i chose is too cool for me or would look horrible, and i can never get exactly what i want, ntm, 3 hours of idle conversation is pretty exhausting!
does anyone have any tips, suggestions, reading or videos that tell you how to cut your own hair?? im particularily interested in Layering and straightened hair
Hey, good on you, 2 languages will always get you ahead!
what stopped me learning to speak japanese pera pera was constantly speaking english in japan! When i stopped making friends with foreigners and started speaking only to japanese people ore no nihongo wa moto jouzushimashita!
also, anime, manga and music is a great way to motivate and immerse yourself in japanese language.
Gakuen alice- shoujo (for girls) lots of casual language
Bleach- Shounen (for young boys) lots of casual language, and also japanese spoken by older people
hana-kimi – shoujo (for girls mainly teen to young adult) Casual L
Life – Shoujo/Shounen
Sailor moon – Shoujo – btw, manga is much more interesting than anime
All those manga have been turned into animes and can be watched on www.Crunchyroll.com
Other Dramas and animes that feature japanese culture
Nobuta wo produce
Tantei gakuen Q
The World of Golden eggs (so funny)
most of those can be seen on Crunchyroll, Golden eggs has some on Youtube.
Minasama ganbatte ne!
At my high school it became obvious by the last year that teachers and opportunities shine more favourably on students who were planning to enter law or medicine or administration.
I’ve always wanted to be start a Specialty business and enter the beauty and fashion industry in Japan and i’ve had no opportunity to find out exactly what that industry involves. We have no classes or electives that touch on what i want to pursue in the future and it makes me feel like my entire schooling has been wasted.
They harp on about the OP (overall position: a test that calculates your position against the rest of Australia from 1 (the best) to 25 (the lowest) your number is chosen by taking into account your grades for all your subjects)
and traineeships, but ive found it impossible to to find a traineeship that would help me achieve this goal.
my parents say that it is the last year of school, and that i should try for the OP as it would help me get into a good university in the future (in case i change my mind).
i understand what they are saying from their pov, but i dont think they understand that i will never want to be a solicitor or a teacher or a doctor.
does anyone know whether i should leave school now and go straight to japan, stay and practice courses (what types, does anyone know any) outside school or put off my plan for this year and try to get a good OP?
any other suggestions are fine too!
