Are there any other good food blogs you can recommend?
gourmetgaming: their blog consists of recreating foods from popular video games, posts recipes, and rates difficulties for those who want to make it themselves. fuckyeahanimefood: if you like looking at anime food, their uploads are of amazing quality. omame: daily spam of various kinds of food, only problem is that unless you read japanese or know a lot about japanese food, it’ll be difficult to know what the food is, but they always take the time to source so you can look back and find out what it is/where it was taken. other than that, great blog. japanlove: has a occasional food spam, but awesome blog if you like japan/japanese culture. fuckyeahmatcha: pretty self explanatory, if you like green tea/matcha, this is definitely a great blog to follow. shelovesasianfood: posts various asian foods on a regular basis, love this blog!
these are literally all the food blogs i’m following lol, i know i should follow more but i only follow blogs that source their pictures and i’m too lazy to look around.
I'm partway through the Japanese major at my school and I've got very little motivation. I think I still want to learn this language, but I really don't have a huge drive or passion for it or anything that I'd do with it. I'm just kindof meh. Help?
you may need a reminder as to why you decided to learn the language in the first place, get back into the roots of what made you decide that majoring in japanese was for you/your future. you may have forgotten what your goal was down the line, which is completely normal.
after a few years of learning, it does start to wear you down because it gets tedious when you’re learning it in such a formal setting.
making friends of the same major or are fluent in the language will help motivate you if you try to push each other to become better. another is finding something that you like in terms of japanese culture (religion, music, food, traveling, etc.) and use that as motivation. try joining a japanese culture-related club (if your school has one) and going from there.
if you have the means, i’d definitely recommend a trip to japan/study abroad(yes i can’t shut up about it. i’m really sorry lol). figure out if the language is really something you want to study. if it’s not, i wish you the best of luck on what you plan to pursue in the near future, and if it is, awesome! :)
