Watashi-wa Temp desu.

Posted by Temp

So, for those of you who are unaware, I am taking Elementary Japanese this year and the title of my blog is "My name is Temp." I'll admit it - I'm really proud of the fact that I'm actually learning Japanese. I mean, despite the fact it takes up a majority of my studying time and sometimes I lay in my bed wondering if I'm in over my head, I do love and appreciate every moment of it.

My sensei, Chiaki Shima, is probably the coolest woman I've ever met. Not only does she bring us snacks to class, but she is just an all-around fun person to be around. Honestly, our classroom is more like a game show than an actual class. With that being said, there are times when you feel like a complete moron; however, Chiaki-sensei is always there to cheer us up with never-ending laughter and encouragement to get us through to the next seemingly impossible chapter.
