The forth great thing that happened on Vday

On Valentine's Day, one other great thing happened. At that time I was
so excited, I couldn't even sit down to write about it...

But, well yes it's been a week, but it seems it wasn't such a big
deal. Barely remembered in fact...

But I am proud to say that I passed the Japanese Proficency Test,
level 2!

Just to put it in perspective, there's only one more level above that.

What does it mean? Well, I'll find a link to what the official test
says I can do, but that doesn't mean I can do it all of course.

More than just passing a test, I'm happy that I reached a goal I set
for myself. I can't remember the last time I set a goal or achieve
one. I should set more more often...

Since then, I've picked up one of my favorite comics and started
reading it in Japanese. I still need a dictionary and I'm probably not
catching everything I should be, but the most important thing is
that... it's much cheaper than buying an English version!

$12-$14 = English translated comic
$1-$4 = Japanese original

See, all that studying is already paying off (^_*)b

Happy Valentine's Day

What a great Valentine's Day! But probably not for the typical reasons.

1. We were able to make it to church. It's been... a while. Not that
anything spectacular happened, but it was just nice being there. I
hope we can go again soon. Next week I have a health check to go to...

2. It was warm out! That's very important when you have to walk

3. We got to eat pretty darn good chocolate...

And reason #4... well you'll just have to wait... (^_^)

More DSi goodness thanks to the Moving Memo Pad. It makes me wish I could really draw, but making this basketball dude was fun! Check out the website where all the submissions are uploaded.


If you can't be bothered with all the stick men, someone made a channel with all the professional looking ones here.

Here's my favorite so far:
