It''s been awhile!
I've decided to start off my 2017 with two major goals in mind: Take the level N5 JLPT test in December and learn how to ice skate.
This is all thanks to my new favorite anime called, ューリ!!! On Ice.
At then end of December 2016, I was feeling like there was something missing in my life. I decided to watch the anime because no one was shutting up about it. Now I know why.
The music is amazing, the skating animation is so detailed, and the characters are entertaining! I love Yuuri and Victor's relationship so much. It was love but it was also so much more than that.
The anime seemed to have lifted me out of a dark cloud and my love for Japan and Japanese culture was revitalized! I decided to relearn Japanese and to make it even worth more of a challenge, take the JLPT test in December. I'll be updating a side Tumblr blog I have that lists Japanese resources and entries on how my studying is going.
The anime also inspired me to want to learn to skate. Now, I'm not looking at going to the Grand Prix Final or anything like that. Age wise it's too late and I just started exercising (at the end of December) so that's not realistic. Now, I am planning to take lessons so I at least have the basics down. I am interested in solo ice dancing though so I might look into that.
I know it might sound ridiculous to most people that someone could get inspired by an anime to do such extreme things but that's what happened with me.
I will try to update as much as I can later. See ya!
