Introduction!

Hello world! I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while and thought I might as well go for it! I’m trying to prepare some stuff to post ahead of time so that I’ll be uploading content semi regularly, but I’m not sure how active I can stay at this. I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Anyway, I guess I should write some kind of introduction for this~

So a bit about me. I’m in my third year of college, majoring in International Business and minoring in Japanese. I was born in Belgium and grew up in the US, so I’m fluent in both French and English, and foreign languages have been a huge interest of mine for a while now. I took about five years of Spanish in high school (though my Spanish has become quite atrocious by now…) and my passion now is learning Japanese, which I’ve been actively studying for over two years (though I still have so much to learn~!). I’ve been in love with the language and the culture for as long as I can remember and really want to share that passion with others. I looove watching J-Dramas and am a fan a few Johnny Entertainment bands (namely the band Arashi~), though my interests in Japanese music definitely extends to lots of other jpop and jrock – even some visual kei.

So what am I going to include in this blog? I’m still kinda figuring that one out... Basically I plan to write about what I love. I’d like to talk about the process of learning Japanese, maybe share some learning tips, my personal progress and thoughts on the language, and maybe offer some “lessons” on the very basic stuff. I’ve traveled quite a bit and would love to share my insight in that category, especially my experiences of Belgium and our culture, foods, etc. I’d like to discuss jdramas, doing reviews of the series I’ve seen, as well as talk about music and the like. And then, as I’ve recently finally went Japan and plan to study there, I would love to share my discovery of the country and the experience of visiting and living in Japan.

Okay, so, here’s hoping I can write interesting entries! I’d love to get some feedback from you guys~! よろしくお願いします!
