Please don’t feel upset @marikofujimoto, your family really should try to bond and talk with you so you feel closer to them Mariko, do go outside yourself when you need too sweetie and don’t isolate yourself, try to stay positive and fill your day with brightness, find activities to make you smile hun, you can do it, I’m always here if you need…[Read more]
I agree, people are changing with technology so much.
I’m so sorry you’ve been depressed and crying, I really hope you can feel better real soon and things will work out. ♥♥♥
@mariko I hope you do. Technology pisses me off a lot, too. Sorry you have to be dealing with that, people don’t seem to realize how they’re often making others feel unappreciated and ignored and it’s pretty inconsiderate and not fair to you
I’m sure you will find great language resources online and as time goes on, you will become fluent in Chinese @marikofujimoto, hope everything goes amazingly for you Mariko, follow your dreams and never give up, you can do it, I’m always here for you sweetie <3 (hugs)
No PDFs yet, but the site above may help. I found ! have to listen to the language a lot before my ear can begin to pick up the individual sounds. At first it just sounds like gibberish noise. Language is an amazing thing.
You should download apps which will help you with that. Since you can’t really get a hang of pinyin and hanzi just by reading them. You actually need to listen to know the difference. There are many apps which help you with that.
@oliver thank you so much oli
I don’t know man, I’m a natural drawer haha. If you have art class/club in school, just pay extra attention in class and ask your classmates for help/tips. If I need tutorials, YouTube is my go-to website. Also, if you don’t mind, I’d like to have a look at some of your art.
@marikofujimoto I love to draw! The main thing I tell everyone is practice practice practice. I would say find something that really inspires or interests you as your topic, and make it a reference. You may not want to do realistic stuff, but either way, having references will help you a lot, to use as guidelines, so you can check where you’re on…[Read more]
@princepossum what about dimension (shades , etc) ? Will it come naturally by practising?
My sister and dad are natural at this and they do it like is nothing, but my talent is writing, not drawing. So I’m literally starting from scratch and have some doubs.
Also does drawing help you with anxiety? I was hoping would be a good thing for it
That’s so lovely @marikofujimoto, it’s so wonderful that they care about you and see you as a friend, I’m sure you will continue to be a inspiring guide and teacher to them, hope you are having a good day Mariko, I’m always here for you sweetie <3 (hugs)
Ahhh. Lasagna. Garfield would be pleased, as am I. Just add some garlic bread, or cheesy garlic bread. Don’t forget the cheesy garlic bread.
That sounds delicious @marikofujimoto, hope you have a nice lunch Mariko <3 (hugs)
29 degrees is hot, really?
If it is humid, it is hot. We have a dry heat on the prairies, not to be confused with dry heaves, which is definitely not hot.
Also, I checked. It shouldn’t be that hot: http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/reports/climate/Portugal.htm
Maybe it is climate change. Or maybe someone has pointed a big mirror at you all for some nefarious reason that the government is being quiet about. Do you live in the city? Cities are often heat sinks because of the amount of concrete and…[Read more]
@natalie-geroux its in celcius
@tanisha no, close to a beach and is still boiling hot. Is typical of Portugal but my body can’t handle this heat
What is the ocean like? Would it cool you off? Could you just walk into the ocean? I would love to live near a beach someday. I would walk into the ocean if I was boiling, unless there were ice bergs in said ocean, then I would just goof around in the sand, and longingly look at the ocean. I would take a big beach umbrella so the sun wasn’t…[Read more]
Yea, I figured that out. I guess 29 isn’t that hot for me since I am a sucker for summers at the beach. All the nice ice creams and chilled cocktails. And lazy days by the pool. Damn, I miss home.
Do stay cool and take care of yourself @marikofujimoto, it’s mostly sunny and mild here in the UK, hope you are having a great day sweetie, I’m always here for you Mariko <3 (hugs)

Well, for sake of help or comfort. There are days where you cant sleep. Those days I sit and meditate
Do try to sleep well and relax your mind @layla95, hope you manage to get a good rest sweetie, I’m always here for you Layla <3 (hugs)
@layla95 what’s wrong? If you want message me, worried about you
@marikofujimoto sorry for the late response. I’m fine I just was having muscle spasms in my legs and thighs and my typical Overthinking on top of that. Thank you for always caring so much. (:
That’s great to hear @marikofujimoto, I’m sure they will contact you soon, proud of you hun, do stay positive and look ahead towards all the bright opportunities that await you in the future sweetie, remember to keep shining and go forward with confidence, inbox me anytime if you want to chat Mariko <3 (hugs)

@oliver thanks oli trying to look at the positive! Hope your day is going good aswell!
@marikofujimoto again, congratulations girl! You deserve to be happy (:
Dust bunnies happen in Canada, where (maybe because of the earth’ rotation and our northern latitude), dust gathers in clumps under beds and dressers, etc. We call these dust bunnies. If left too long, they continue to bond, and then we call them dust dogs, the dust hippos, dust elephants, and dust dinosaurs. If they get big enough they often…[Read more]
It’s almost 8 am here and goodmorning (:

im sure you will find a place!!! ill pray for you so that you do.
@marikofujimoto someone really need to be getting in touch with you. That’s crazy but I’m sure someone will get in contact with you. People are literally slow acting at times. Give it a bit more time girl.
That sucks! I would try to visit, if possible. They can’t ignore you if you are physically there in front of them, and you could ask to be redirected so you can talk to the right school. Some places just never get back to anyone, and some have a policy like they’ll reply in a few business days. It’s terrible, but I would really try anything…[Read more]
Thank you everyone, they FINALLY responded. I’ll have to go this afternoon there to have a place on the degree.
Thanks to everyone for your support
