« Coming of Fall | Main | Snow Festival 2009 »


Uh, let me whine, nothing is more disgusting than snow shovelling on weekends!

Well, hi, Kumiko-san. Long time no see. There sure are times when you feel like you have lost your motivation. Don't worry. Just wait until you want to learn again. There is no end in learning a language. I, too, have a lot to do to improve my English. I haven't seen the other side of the tunnel yet. In a sense, nobody could "master" a certain language. You know, even the Prime Minister can't read kanji well. ;)

And, thanks, guys, for New Year's greetings. Forgive me for not answering them, 'cause I'm 筆無精 (fude-busho: a lazy letter writer).

So Happy New Year to you all. May the year 2009 be a great one.

Even though I'm still not in the mood for blogging, KEC Journal is, and will be, here to stay.


Glad to hear KEC is here to stay. I understand the motivational struggles.



Happy 2009! I haven't studied Japanese seriously in several years but I just got a Kanji flip program for my iPhone which has got me interested in practicing again. I know it is a lifelong ambition. Even though I may never be able to speak Japanese, I enjoy learning about culture through words and expressions.

Best wishes for the new year.
