I've been hosting Japanese college girls. It's given me a great chance to practice my Japanese and to help the girls learn English. One of them had a baby about a week or two ago, and another became a Christian after spending time with me at church and in my home. I'm happy to have made friendships like these, and I hope someday I can go and visit them in Japan!
Speaking of Japanese, I hate to admit it, but I think within the past few months, I've started to become more or less obsessed with anime and the like. I've liked the Japanese culture since about 5th grade. However, I was never really in to anime, only the language, people, and other parts of their culture. Now, it's like I can't stop watching stuff. I feel like a loser. A big fat loser. I just hope I don't become a weeaboo. At least I actually know quite a bit of the language and not just "kawaii," "sugoi," etc. Plus, I don't actually speak Japanese in public unless someone asks me to or if I'm with a Japanese-speaking person. This'll be over soon, hopefully.
