日本語能力試験 (JLPT) を合格しないからもう一度取りたいけど。私にとって日本語のスキルを見るのが一番大切な証明書だ。７月に来るまで毎月勉強しているようにするけど仕事だから疲れるよ！
一つ良かった事はNaNoWriMoをした。ついにファイナルファンタジーインスパイア話を始めて書いた。まだ終わるけど長く書くばかりだ！ゲームの世界とタイトルはミラゲン(Miragen)。いつかゲームになって書いた後で日本語を翻訳するのが好きだけど今終わるために難しいよ。ミラゲンは７人について目的をできて、世界を散策する。そしてAMBW （アジア男と黒女）関係が起きる。人間だけでなく民族がいる。４民族はVen (ベン)、 Torra (トッラ) Oumura (オウムラ) とEiserne (アイセンネ) だ。５００００言葉をできたけど
It’ll probably be why before I next post something interesting or even from my trip to Asia. But there will probably be an absence of posts even more than usual.
I’m doing the NaNiWriMo challenge this November. It is basically a challenge to write a book of 50000 words or more in 30 days. At the end of it, I’ll have a novel ready for people to read. If anyone read my post on Final Fantasy, they’ll know I was going to plan my own final fantasy story but I’m going to take that idea and develop it into my own game story now. If anyone who still reads this blog has an account on that site, the link to my story, Miragen is here. People who don’t have an account, I’ll try and post the story somewhere else for other people to read another time.
I have no idea whether I’ll be continuing on this blog anymore too. It’s not the same as it is was in 2009/10 and no-one comments on here. I’m starting to think it could be because people are unable to leave comments and what I used to post is done by multiple commenters. I’ve lost a lot of interest to write about pop culture because the music is not the same and I have other responsibilities and things going on at the moment.
I don’t know whether to blog about my life, my views on pop culture or current interests. So I might have to revert to resetting and taking a little break.
The Final Fantasy series in my opinion is in decline, many fans would say. What people don’t realise is the storyline seem to be losing their touch. The plots aren’t as driven for the fans as they used to be. With development still under way for FFXV, there is ongoing speculation on whether it can “save” the franchise.
In my opinon, the franchise does not need saving but to focus on its plot. Story is one of the most important elemnets in a game and it’s something that sticks in a player’s mind for a long time. Graphics and character design seem to be the focus more these days which is a pity as I believe Final Fantasy exceeds at being one of the few franchises that portrays stories that stick into a person’s mind.
For once I’d like Square Enix to take ideas from fans and take them into consideration for a future Final Fantasy storyline. So I’d like to present ideas for a future title’s story that is bound to make the creators even wonder why they didn’t consider doing this.
…only for 6 weeks though.
Having an interest in another country’s language that you’d want to learn if you have a strong cultural interest in that particular country is something that drives people to go live in that country. But something that has been bothering me is instead of an person experiencing the culture, they believe that while in Japan and Korea, it should be like their home country. It’s more like the people who take the easy route to live in a country of THEIR CHOICE and EXPECT the locals to speak to them in their own language. Preferably there are always reports and videos that I read and watch that put people from English speaking countries living in predominantly less ethnically diverse places.
I wonder if I can put this into words that everyone can understand and also know that it is my opinion upon when people freely select to go to another country (e.g.studying abroad and keep themselves in a bubble).
久しぶり皆さん！最近未来についてすごく考えています。まず8月から9月まで韓国と日本に行きます。いるとき、色々ことが起きるかもしれません。ユニクロを働くのが大変だからやめたいと思います。素晴らしい人と会って友達になっても、新しい章を始まりたいと思います。卒業あとでキャリアを見つけたり振り付けを作ったりそれに姉と一緒にスマートフォンゲーム会社 (@teamjunction5) を作りたいですから。色々ですよね？やめたいですけど泊まるかもしれません。本社に良い職位がありますから申し込むかもしれません。今てもキャリアを働くかどうか分かりません。
오랜만에 여러분! 최근 미래에 대해 너무 생각해요. 우선 8 월부터 9 월까지 한국과 일본에가요. 있을 때, 다양한 일이 일어날지도 몰라요. 유니클로을 일하는 것이 힘들 기 때문에 그만 싶어요. 좋은 사람을 만나 친구가되어도 새로운 장을 시작하고자해요. 졸업 후에 직업을 찾거나 안무를 만들고 거기에 누나와 함께 스마트 폰 게임 회사 (@teamjunction5)를 만들고 싶으니까요. 다양한군요? 그만 싶지만 숙박지도 몰라요. 본사에 좋은 직위가 있기 때문에 신청 할지도 몰라요. 지금도 경력을 작동하는지 몰라요.
(It’s been a while everyone! Recently I’ve been thinking about my future. Firstly I’ll be going Japan and Korea. When I’m there, a lot of things may happen. Because working in Uniqlo is tiring, I would like to quit. Even though I’ve met some amazing people and become friends with them, I would like to start a new chapter. After graduation, I’ll look for my career, make choreography and also help my sister with her smartphone game company, @teamjunction5. I want to quit but I may have to stay. Because there is a good job position in head office, I may apply. Since I don’t know whether or not what career I want.)
