Japanese Word Of The Day


How I started learning Japanese

I posted another entry at my personal blog today:


Things will hopefully get more interesting soon ;-)


My personal blog

Today I actually created my first post on my personal blog which can be found here:


The reason I created it is mainly to write about my experiences learning Japanese which is something I've wanted to do for a long time, so if you're interested in my trials and tribulations regarding this then please feel free to have a read.

There isn't much there yet but believe me there will be as I'm sure it won't be long before I start tearing my hair out when things get tough lol!


Twitter & Me

I have recently started to actually use my twitter account (which I opened a while ago but didn't really use) as I discovered a little iPhone app called qTweeter which allows you to instantly update both your facebook and twitter status instantly.

It also allows you to tweet about a website you may be browsing or a youtube video or music you're listening to directly from the application you're using at that moment (does that make sense lol). It's a very simple idea that has been implemented very elegantly with a lovely user interface.

If you're interested, check it out here: qTweeter

You do need a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch to use this but there are lots of other twitter apps around in the iTunes store if you're looking ;-)

I'd also love to read about my LJ friends on twitter so if any of you are members let me know and I'll follow you and if you're not why don't you check it out...? It's quite addictive once you've started following some interesting feeds...

Bye for now!

Handwriting Personality Quiz

gURL.comI took the "handwriting personality" quiz on gURL.com
my handwriting personality is...
sensitive scripter

Your handwriting reveals you as a thoughtful, intellectual type who avoids fake people and places where there's lots of noise and crowds. You're probably the one people go to when they're feeling super sad. Read more...

What does your handwriting reveal about you?

Thanks to smartyshortie for the idea :D I agree with most of this except my pop culture knowledge is good I'd say lol!

RE: Intelligence Types

Gacked from minerva_fan My result isn't really much of a surprise as I am a professional musician but I found the test interesting and fun ;-)

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


10% Logical, 31% Spatial, 41% Linguistic, 59% Intrapersonal, 8% Interpersonal, 67% Musical, 8% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 22% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with rhythm, music, and hearing. Those who have a high level of musical-rhythmic intelligence display greater sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones and music. They normally have good pitch and may even have absolute pitch, and are able to sing, play musical instruments, and compose music. Since there is a strong auditory component to this intelligence, those who are strongest in it may learn best via lecture. In addition, they will often use songs or rhythms to learn and memorize information, and may work best with music playing in the background.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include instrumentalists, singers, conductors, disc-jockeys, and composers." (Wikipedia)

My first post!

As this is my first post on LJ I thought I'd add a gallery of my favourite Joan Crawford photos from my own private collection. Joan is my favourite actress from the Classic Hollywood era and I love watching her films as well as reading about her life. I've put up a wide variety of photos from around 1930 to 1946 and I hope to add more soon ;) If you like the pics feel free to leave a comment.
