Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

JealousyThe sun was starting to rise in Lake Town, and we were walking towards the place where we had been told that we would be able to set off towards Erebor. We would finally be able to start the very last part of the journey: our trip to Erebor and the Lonely Mountain. What would happen after this only Eru, and perhaps Mandos, knew. This, however, was the least of my worries right now. Rather, the only thing that occupied my mind was the completely unmistakable thing that was happening. Unmistakable, and painfully so.Jealousy1 year ago in Romance More Like This

CruxI’m only sure of two things:Crux2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I still carry pieces of your cross on my back and
lilies were your favorite flower
Those last three months-
A silent drive home from the mall
purse full of stolen makeup
Dinners with my family where no one
bothered to make the conversion
Endless hours spent looking at paint samples
and I was smart to not buy the brushes
The line at the liquor store blended
with the lines on the road
At the same time with you
Then it was summer and you talked me into a country drive. We stopped on the side of the road to watch a cow giving birth in the center of a pasture. But, the calf never rose to its wobbly legs or felt the heat of the Indian summer….it never tasted dandelions.
The mother stood by the calf’s body
long past nightfall
and I stood by yours
long after that
Was this what we meant when we said forever?

Earthquake CafeIt’s hard to believeEarthquake Cafe1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
It’s been six years since the Earthquake Café.
Since the Science Center froze our shadows on the wall.
I wonder if they’re still there.
Six years since we made people double-take,
Look crooked at us and issue back-hand compliments,
And I’d say, thanks? I think.
Since we were that pair of people.
Six years and still not comfortable
Calling it a couple, “it’s complicated”
That status on Facebook was made for us then.
Seventy-two moons since the solstice
Where you were the first
And the last
Person to ever make me blush.
You’ll have to forgive the nostalgia.
This is how I get closure,
And writing is so much cheaper than therapy.
A lost generation unto our selves,
Not quite Jay and Daisy
Maybe more F. Scott and Zelda
Maybe more than a little crazy,
And now you have this baby cutting teeth.
You have this something stable,
This foundation not built on fault lines.
This life not given to blackouts and tremors.

Tony, who had been pushed to the doorway of Bruce's bedroom, tried to move back toward him in order to help. "But I"
Bruce looked up into Tony's eyes and Tony could see the Other Guy, the Hulk, trying to break free. "I won't leave you. I know you're pissed but I need to fix it. It doesn't matter if it's with you or him."
The expression on Bruce's face turned to horror as a green hue began to dye his skin. He shook his head violently as he lunged forward and shoved Tony out of the room so hard that he fell on his ass and skidded across the floor of Bruce's living room. Tony flinched as the door slammed shut so he couldn't see Bruce as he changed. He could feel the sting through his legs from sliding across the dark green carpet.
The sunlit room had one wall of windows and little furniture because Bruce didn't want anything that was easily breakable. Everyth

A True MasochistMy own worst enemy,A True Masochist5 years ago in Open More Like This
everything I do
seems merely designed
to put myself in my own way.
To put it proverbially,
I shoot myself in the foot,
more than I hit the target.
Fear of success holds me back.
After all, one cannot reach a dream,
while they kick the ladder out
from under themselves...
Each time I draw close,
it seems a perverse pleasure,
kicking my own ass...
So much potential,
I keep hearing it all around me.
My own saboteur,
ruining all my chances.
So help me, I've put on the collar,
clipped on the leash,
and slammed it in the door,
choking myself trying
to chase what I want most.
Do I fear failure, or success more?
A true masochist,
unable to allow myself
even one moment of joy.
Do I fear the misery, or happiness?
I may never know the truth,
until I step out of my own way,
and allow myself to taste it.

Bruce sighed in content as he worked on his current formula. Tony was out of the lab for the moment, and Banner was going to use every moment of Tony-free peace he could. The man had been pestering him a lot more frequently than he normally does. 'Whatever it is, I hope it blows over soon.' And it was either bad luck or just a curse, but Tony came back right in the middle of some very circuital calculations.
"Whatcha doing, Bruce?" "Working, now please be quite, Tony." With a pout, Tony complied. 'Huh, first time he's done that today..' Bruce didn't think any further on it as he tried to finish up his calculations. With a deep, tired sigh, Banner finished and decided it was a good time to stop, sit down, and eat something.
