Death! Doom! Reports!

I think I may have died and gone to hell today. Ikebana reports are the most evil thing ever, dear lord. 4 pages (1,600 characters) on "how I have felt about flowers in my lifetime"? Thankfully, 2 of the nicest girls on this planet graciously helped me (*is so glad that Momoko and Yukie exist*), because I sure as hell wouldn't have been able to write this by myself. One of Momoko's friends helped me for a long time too, but I didn't catch her name >.>; But I am grateful! And somehow alive! I got here at the school (on a Saturday, mind you) at 10:30am, and I am finished at 4:00pm. How unjust is that XD;;;. I'm just going to go die now, but if anyone wishes to see the report of doom, it is under the LJ-cut. Not that you'd be able to read it, because I'm far, far to tired to post a translation at the moment XD;. So goodbye! Omg, so blargh XDDD;.

私は日本の花が見たことがありません、それから、私は日本の花がおもしろいと思います。私のくにはアメリカです。こんかいはじめて、日本にきました。私にとってぜんぶあたらしいことばかりで花もそうでした。いつも、私は花がきれいとずっと思いました、でも、花のことをよくしらないです。 

私の好きな花はバラです。バラはアメリカにも日本にもあります。だから、いけばなクラスでバラを見たときうれしかったし、おもしろかったです。バラのとげはあぶないけどきれいです。バラの花びらもきれいです。アメリカではたくさんのバラのいろがあるのでおもしろいとおもいます。日本にはバラにいろいろないろがあることをしらないです。なぜなら私は日本であかのバラしか見たことがないからです。 

私のいえのあるアメリカで私のお母さんはいえのまえに花のにわをもっています。アメリカのミズウリのりくにはたくさんいしがあります。でも、花はせいちょうしています。いつも、私のお母さんは花のにわにたくさんのことなった花をそだてています。私はたくさんこのにわでのおもいでがあります。いつも、私は花のおせわをしてほうかごお花にみずをあげました。アイリスとヒャクニチソウとゼラニウムとバラとケマンソウとユリとお母さんのにわにたくさん花がそだっています。いま、私はお母さんのにわのてつだいをすることができません。なぜなら、私はそこにすんでいないからです。

でも、私は花はきれいだと思います。私がはじめてがくしゅいんじょしだいがくにきたときはじめて日本の花を見ました。いろいろなところにさくらがあります。私はいままでさくらをみたことがなかったです。私はさくらはすごくきれいだと思いました。私はつよいいんしょうをうけました。 

日本にはたくさん花があります。私がきょうとに行ったとき花をたくさん見ました。私は日本には東京だけでなく、すべてのばしょに花があると思いました。かんどうしました。それから、ひとつのおてらはすごくひろいフラワーガーデンがありました。アイリスのにわでした。とてもきれいでした。

でも、アメリカにはたくさん花はありません。ほとんどのアメリカ人は花をあまりきにしていません。花は日本人にとってたいせつなものだとかんじました。私はいいと思います。 

日本人もアメリカ人もみなさんはしぜんにかんしゃするべきです。なぜなら私がいけばなのクラスにいるおかげで、花にかんしゃすることができたからです。

私はながいあいだ花のちかくで花をおせわしています。いけばなのクラスでは私のすきなバラをつかいました。日本でのフラワーアレンジングはかんぜんにアメリカのフラワーアレンジングとはちがいます。アメリカでは、花やさんはかびんに花をいれるか、花たばをつくります。いけばなのクラスをとるまでは、私は日本のフラワーアレンジングのようなものは見たことがありませんでした。

私は日本にこれたことがとてもうれしいです。それから、いけばなのクラスで花をアレンジできたことがとてもうれしいです。私はこれからも花にありがとうとたいです。このじゅぎょうをとってよかったとおもいます。
どうもありがとうございました。

Yus!

ありがとうございました、ヘレンさま!いま、私はとてもきらきら。でも。。。あなたはもともときらきらです^_^。*ぎゅ!*

Here is a translation, if you desire XD:

Thank you, Helen-sama! I am very sparkly now. But... You are much more sparkly ^_^. *hug!*

Yay for rudimentary Japanese, it's so much fun XD;. Now if only I could say useful stuff... oh wait, I did, in my report! But wah, I'd rather speak in butchered nonsensical Japanese, than be made to talk about how I feel about flowers XDDD;. *snuggles Helen* I'm... sleepy. But aren't I always? *ramblerambleramble* Anyway, I'm going to... do stuff, so be good! *runs away*

SUGOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WAI!! THANK YOU M FOR WRITING IN JAPANESE TO ME! Even though it's basic'y. *doesn't care omg* I recognized some of the hiragana and my name! *dances* I really want to continue learning them. *pulls out her books zomg*

And *squish* Go rest when you can! Rest lots when you return to the U.S. and don't have to worry about classes!

MUCH LOVE M! YOU'RE TEH BEST!!

It's always fun when you begin to randomly recognize things in Japanese XD. I'm still amazed when I can randomly understand things, but that might just be because I'm prone to forgetting... everything ^^;. You must continue learning them! When I get back to the US, we could do... hiragana tests by mail, or something XDDD.

And yeah... definitely need more sleep. I randomly cried during break today between language class sessions, because I couldn't get a fucking-single-thing to compute in my brain. But I have... 1 more week of class? Maybe two? Yay! That 'tis a good thing. Tests are coming up, so let's see how stressed M can get o.o.

OH! Today, there were two Japanese guys who came to order food!! They both spoke English but they spoke Japanese to each other. When I asked them whether they wanted green tea or black tea with their food, I understood... "midori macha" and "kuro macha" (at least I think that's what they said). So cooooool!! And they just stood in front of the counter while waiting, talking in Japanese. I caught random words and phrases. XDDD *couldn't help but spazz*

I think hiragana tests by mail will be pretty difficult to manage. XD *squishes* We can continue doing it over AIM. ^o^ It was a lot of help to me.

I really need sleep today, work killed me so badly. *wants to die* I hope you're doing okay. My brain was fried right before work ended and customers kept coming in. XD;; I wanted to smash the keyboard and flail. *sigh*

がんばって Mさま!!!

Hoping you survive your tests and return to a life of... not-so-stressed'ness.

They were ordering food in English... but when you asked them what kind of tea they wanted, they answered in Japanese XDD? Nice. Except I don't think they said macha, they probably said "ocha," which is the normal word for tea. Macha is the type that's for the ceremonies, and is neon green XD.

More hiragana tests over AIM will be conducted, then. *nodnod* Hiragana is only half the fun though, you should learn katakana too sometime XD. It's pretty helpful to learn that, since most words spelled in katakana are usually based off of English.

I'm... in the midst of finals week(s), so I wouldn't exactly say I'm fine >.>;. I'm... not crying (at the moment)? Urgh, tests are so hard >.>;. *will persevere!*

がんばってヘレンさま!!!

I forsee your victory ^^.

No, they spoke to me in English but they asked each other in Japanese. XD And yes! "Ocha" was the word. I knew it was something like that. And macha slushie is yum...

I should! Yay for both. *shall attempt* Though M-sama teaching me would be better than me trying to learn by myself. X333

And yes! You too M! Because finals week(S!?) must be uber difficult for you. Wah, what else can Helen do to help you survive and not break down? ;-;

I shall try to teach you katakana too, but hiragana should probably be first XD. Learning to write hiragana is fun, it's all loopy and pretty ^_^. Katakana looks much more blocky.

I think I have tests over two weeks-- this week and next week. But I shall work hard, because I suppose this is something M has to do for herself... unless you want to come take the tests for me, of course XD;. Hmm... if you have any random fics lying around that I haven't read yet, though, that might cheer me up XDDD.

Hai. ^_^ I shall self-study until you return, then you can test me to see how far I've gotten.

>.o And I would take them for you but I'd so fail. *clings* GANBATTE M-SAMA!!! I can't say that enough.

I do have random fics... if you remember my WIP list, I have some written on paper but not typed. They're also not done yet so... >.>;; I don't know if you want to read them. I also have one of.......................................

.....................................MOMMY!KAIDOH AND DADDY!INUI!! Remember that idea you gave me ages ago? I don't even remember where it was anymore. XD;; But I got a perfect plot... device to write that scenario. If you know who Fuwa Daichi is *points to icon* you'll understand. X3

I think I survived that first test... I got a 78 on it (ouch XD; ), but I should get a B overall in the class because my attendance is all sparkly ^^.

Random fics ^^! You don't have to type anything up just for me though, because I usually don't have time to read much while at the lab >.>;. But if you randomly do have anything already typed up, you should e-mail it or something, so I can at least try to read it XDD;.

MOMMY!KAIDOH AND DADDY!INUI!! Ahh, I forgot all about that XDDD. I definitely want to see that when you finish it, or get some of it finished anyway. And... is Fuwa Daichi from the Whistle! anime? I remember you randomly talking about him, but all I know about him is he's... kinda like a cross of Inui and Kaidoh XD?

YUS! M-SAMA PASSED!!! WHAT NOW!? YOU CAN DO IT M-SAMA!!

God yes, it's tiring being hyper when you're dead tired. XD;;

And hai, I shall bombard you with random fics of doom. Unfinished but yes. XD;;

I found the thread... http://disutansu.livejournal.com/57873.html?thread=855569#t855569 And I'm almost done yay. I'd ask you to beta but you're really out of it so we'll see. XD;;

And yes. Fuwa looks like that. *points at icon again* He has Kaidoh's seiyuu and he takes data on people. Spouts percentages, etc. XD He's love. Really.

Wow, I really should just go looking through our old threads sometime XD;. We always seem to be uprooting something semi-incriminating that we've said in the past XDD.

I forgot I sent you that letter XDD;. Omg, homework and finals and death are killing my brain as of the past month or so ^^;. *snuggles Trinity* Perhaps I shall stay alive, if only to look forward to a letter from Trinity ^__^.

I didn't send that letter that long ago, I've just got the worst memory ever XD;. *snuggles Trinity* Sankyu for writing back! I'm always gleeful to get something in my mailbox ^^. Well, other than flyers, anyway XD;. The flyer people love me, I get at least 5 flyers stuffed in my mailbox a day. I don't want your massages and internet connections, leave my mailbox alooo~ne ^^;! *burns all the flyers to make room for real mail*
