If Only Buildings Were Words: Thursday 27th January

Today was one of those days where it would probably have been of greater benefit to the rest of the class if I had given my answers in Spanish, the only positive to come today’s adventures in Japanese grammar being the knowledge that next week’s part test will not contain a listening exam. However, the adulation was short lived and I was soon back in my own personal hell, convinced that the plain form can be used to normalise a verb.

Hello House, Goodbye Sun.

The house next to me is finished; just over two months from picturesque field to sun blocking eyesore. If I was able to build sentences at the same rate that the Japanese building industry can put up real estate, then I would be able to tell my classmates that England is a glorious place full of fascinating history, hidden gems and small wonders; rather than an island that is made from May Poles (a stick people dance near) and Black pudding (a foodstuff made from oink oink).
