Miku's Not For You Anymore
Miku's Not For You Anymore.
That's right folks. It's true. With the push to bring Miku to the West, opening for Lady Gaga, performing on The Late Show, partnering with American companies like WeLoveFine and Tokidoki, and of course the infamous English Miku, many people have been voicing their discomfort with the whole situation.
"Miku's supposed to be Japanese!"
"Why didn't she perform that one really popular song that the whole fandom loves?"
"No one watching David Letterman is going to like Miku!! They'll think she's weird!!"
"If Miku becomes popular in America she'll be ruined!!"
"Who made that decision?" some wonder.
"Why would Crypton do that?" others cry.
"This isn't what fans want!!"  they scream.
Let me blow your mind...
Crypton knows this. They know this isn't what you want. They don't care. Because Miku's not for you anymore.
Miku is for everyone.
Now Calm down. I know what you're thinking. "I already know that! That's the point! Miku is for all the fans, not just me!"

So I noticed I hadn't updated my journal for like... two years. SO HERE'S AN UPDATE ABOUT A COOL THING!!
My husband and I moved to Japan this week. We're still settling in and getting over jet lag, but everything's going pretty darn well. 
Although walking around and /attempting/ to talk to everyone really makes me realize just how much Japanese I have to learn. Just when I think I'm doing kind of okay someone tries to tell me something important or make me sign something and I'm like, ".....wutokaysure."

I'm really worried that I'm not learning fast enough. I've only been here a week, but I hear other people talk about how quickly they pick up new languages when they're surrounded by it all the time, but I've never been that good at memorizing or studying so I'm afraid I may never pick up Japanese. I couldn't even get through high school. I feel like I should be learning at least like ten new words a day, but I'm not. I feel like I shouldn't be speaking any English at all, but I totally do. Most of the time. I feel like I'm not immersing myself enough. But I can't really tell. I don't seem to have the ability to learn Japanese from only listening to/reading Japanese. I have to look up translations and try to memorize them. I can't just figure out what people are saying from context alone. Is that normal? Am I just dumb? How is this supposed to work? 

It's not really fair of me to judge myself to harshly based on only a week's worth of experience, but I'm still really worried. I always am. 
Anyway, there's what's on my mind for the time being.
  • Watching: Silver Spoon
  • Eating: Mysterious conbini instant noodles
  • Drinking: Kagome Vegetable juice
