Day 11 of 100 Days to Offload Past days I’ve been watching a lot of 恋は雨上がりのように, or, After the Rain. It’s definitely a great anime, very sweet and wholesome, despite being about a 17-year-old who falls in love with a 45-year-old man who is her boss. Definitely on of my favourite anime! One of the main things MattVsJapan stresses about immersive learning is to never get bored. If you’re getting bored, the more likely you are to give up.

Day 10 of 100 Days to Offload This year I’m renewing my goal of learning Japanese. It’s something that I’ve been trying to do ever since high school (I have been out of university now for a couple of years) and have been doing half heartedly on and off ever since then. In university I had a friend lend me their Japanese textbook, Genki, and I still have it.
