2016-2017

I seriously thought I had done one of these for 2015 too, but the last 'new things this year' post I've been able to find is 2013, so, well, long over due I guess.

-got an actual real grown-up job that I actually (mostly) enjoy
-finished a second Bachelor's degree
-started wearing lolita fashion instead of just admiring it from afar
-finally taught myself some Javascript and how MVC frameworks work
-majorly upped my cosplay game - first corset, first mostly-armor costume, and a lot less cutting corners.

For 2017, I'd like to work more on my Japanese learning, maybe actually practice drawing, and spending more time reading and writing.

Sounds like a pretty eventful year in positive self-growth and education/exciting ways. Do you feel pretty satisfied with what you accomplished?

Angular! I have heard Things about it from the teams at work that picked it up and then sort of regretted it. ReactJS is apparently the thing people want to do.

Wow, 2 degrees! Due to a long string of unfortunate incidents I still don't even have 1 yet, haha. What're they in? I'm majoring in Japanese now (was doing Icelandic before but had to switch because I had to move and no Icelandic degrees possible here).

Those are really difficult subjects, haha. I definitely couldn't handle them @.@

The Swedish (and probably Finnish) Japanese degrees go twice the speed as apparently everyone else's, as in I've been asking around everywhere and the USA, France, Germany etc curriculums all teach it much slower than us. So, our second semester is apparently everyone else's second YEAR and so on, and we have a 90% drop-out rate (first semester started with 200 students, second semester ended with 20). I actually know that if it were only taught better we could learn way faster (I learned all the basics of the grammar in 2 weeks just because I read up on the history of the grammar instead of trying to memorize everything as set phrases) but no one teaches that way... So I'm not a Japanese master or anything but if you're still learning and I'm "ahead" of you I can help you out sometime if you want haha.

Well, don't worry about it! Just learning 5 words a day will get you really far in a year, if you pick the right 5 words.
