  1. I like the pictures you chose for the birds. It's interesting that there is no "l" in the Japanese language.

    1. Or in "Team."
      Yeah, I know. That doesn't make much sense.
      Sorry.

    2. actually there is an I. There's Watashi, Boku, and Ore. You probably got it confused with the fact there is no literal equivalent of "a" "an" or "the".

  4. These are pretty neat. I must have missed something (I'm sure I did). Did you live in Japan or did you study Japanese? Or do you have a Japanese heritage? I know you like anime (as opposed to the farmer's daughter, Anna Mae).

    1. Never been to Japan yet, and I don't have any heritage. Just been fascinated by the country since I was young, so learning the language has been my hobby.
