Japanese too!

August 18, 2010

Okay, we have spoken about me learning Finnish/Suomi but did you know that Ms. Skirt speaks Japanese? Mr. Pants said that he wanted to learn it and she started studying with him and teaching him things and answering questions. She said there is a lot that she has forgotten and some things that she never learned at all. So they often study together and now I am learning it as well. It’s kinda fun, I wonder if I can take the JLPT level 5 when they take it. Above are really pretty Hiragana and Katakana charts. We have to learn all of this plus 100 Kanji. I better get busy!


Hello World!

June 17, 2010

Ya’ante! Tervetuloa! Ohayou Gozaimasu! Asalama alaikum! 
I’ve recently been adopted by a wonderful, talkative, creative woman named Andromeda. I was sitting in the warehouse waiting for a home and Andromeda wanted me. My new mommy is into so many cool and different things, as I spend time with her I get to see more and more of the rest of the big wide world. Andromeda is not quite what I expected, but that is not a complaint. I had no idea that I would become a princess and have to be educated in so many diverse areas. Upon arrival we watched Japanese anime, a Bollywood movie called Aaja Nachle and learned about acupuncture. I thought my tea party skills would cover anything, but with this new mommy everyday is a new chance to see and learn something that my mind hadn’t even conceived of yet… she is the epitome of a global citizen. When asked what her ethnicity is she prefers to say human or other, can a color really sum up all the parts of an individual or place someone that speaks Japanese and Hindi as strictly African American? I don’t understand the American classification system, what happens if you are biracial or quad-racial? Does the one drop rule still apply? These are things that we never heard of at the Doll Academy… As you can see she has opened my eyes to quite a lot of things, right out of the box! She is currently running errands and I am at home doing my homework! Join me as I learn all these new things!
