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
@marikofujimoto Those are good questions.. honestly I think it depends on the person, with art some things come naturally and some things don’t. I love colors but I have a difficult time with color palettes, but I am really good with shadows and textures in black and white because my mind is good at guessing what things look like in 3D. If it…[Read more]
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)
