In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
Ola! So after a poll on my Insta Story, I decided to pursue Japanese Language this year. Dududu duuuuuu! Yas, mon. Gonna do self-study on it because I’ve blown my education budget this year on the programming class I took on Udemy. Kwang kwang kwang.
Atashi wa Nururu Huda desu! Nice to meet you! Hahahaha!
So yeah hoping to have fun with it and most importantly listen out to what my bosses are bitching about in Japanese without them knowing. MUAHAHAHAHA!
Yeah, it feels whimsical but given that I’m actually working for a Japanese company, I might as well learn a thing or two about it.
I find that it is easier to learn reading and writing first before learning vocabulary and grammar, as was the case when I was dabbling in Korean. Korean’s Hangul system really made it easy for me to learn the language, unlike Mandarin and Japanese. Hangul is very systematic in the order of writing each syllable. You must always write a consonant first before writing a vowel. As for Mandarin and Japanese, you really have to memorise the characters because there isn’t that same order of writing a consonant first before a vowel to make up a sound. So looks like it is going to be a lot of memory work for me first.
In other news, I’m trying to drink plain water but it has been a huuuuuge challenge doing so. I kept drinking coffee and tea but never like, plain water. What a bad habit I have all these years. How to have good skin like that? More importantly, that is probably why I don’t have the same amount of energy like everyone else because I leave my body withered and dried up all the time. Like a prune.
I’m not looking forward to getting back to work tomorrow. A part of me wants to continue yet another part of me is screaming leave before something bad happens. I really don’t know. However, I am making the decision of whether to consider switching careers after I receive my 13th month bonus in February. Everybody else in the world got theirs in December. Uniqlo has to be extra and postpone that bonus for CNY instead of Christmas. Well, that is assumption. HAHAHAHA!
But yeah I no longer have the passion I once had for this company. I feel like I sacrificed a lot for it but it will never hold me in the same accord as I did for it. So.
Anyway, that’s that. I just want to end this post by saying how happy I am in being a bit more productive than I usually am during my off day. But boy, do off days pass you by so quickly. And suddenly, it’s back to work once more. Shame.
