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... (^_^)
