dogstheymakeupthedark sent: You probably get this asked a lot, but I hope it's alright to ask you nevertheless. I was learning japanese for a few months and was able to write both Hiragana and Katakana and started to learn the basic grammar and Kanji. But then I somehow lost motivation and sadly just stopped with everything. Now I want to try it again and I wanted to ask you how are you able to gain the motivation to keep on learning? Also, is it a good way of learning to teach japanese yourself over the internet?

Hi! No problem :3 
Motivation becomes a problem if learning is difficult in the beginner stage or when you reach an intermediate plateau, so dont worry! Try to find something you enjoy and then do it in Japanese, whether it be watching music videos, tv, or reading. Motivation for me is what I can use the language for in the future (for me it would be a job). You can get motivation if you find a penpal who speaks the language and you want to communicate with them. Try writing a diary on websites like or, that could help too. Good luck!

I beg my colleagues to sit down and let’s work this out. Veterans are dying. This is not a policy, academic issue here. This is the very lives of the men and women who are serving.

Sen. John McCain, on the battle in Congress over how much to spend on reshaping the troubled Veterans Affairs Department. Though the House and Senate overwhelmingly approved separate bills in June to speed up veterans’ access to care, they still disagree on the price tag, and it’s unclear whether the legislation will pass in the few days left before Congress adjourns for its August recess.

The size of North America compared to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter.
Great Red Spot, an enormous, long-lived storm system on the planet Jupiter and the most conspicuous feature of its visible cloud surface. It is generally reddish in colour and oval in shape, approximately 20,000 km long and 12,000 km wide (12,400 by 7,500 miles)—large enough to engulf Earth and Mars side by side.
