i was listening to 8tracks in the car and a fucking vocaloid song came on and the person in the car beside me looked over and nodded and thats when i realized that weeaboos are real. weeaboos exist in real life and they will nod at you when vocaloids begin blasting from your bigass jeep in recognition of your fellow weeability.
“Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages.”—Francois Arnaud for Interview Magazine (via iraplastic)
My freshman year of college didn’t go too well for several reasons.
One, I had no idea what I was getting into: how the classes go, how to prepare for them, how to set a schedule, etc.
Two, I didn’t know how to study. I tried so many different things, different techniques, took notes in various ways, made flashcards.
But it turned out that jumping around like that only made it worse. Without having a steady, set way to prepare for each class, I couldn’t remember the information very well and ended up not doing too hot on the tests.
So now I want to actually set some goals for myself. Maybe these will be helpful to you guys too!
