Untittied

rizplease:

So you may be wondering why I’ve suddenly been posting a lot of kpop.  You see what happened was…Amber Liu.  Amber Liu happened.  I’m the type of person who develops massive, embarrassing crushes on celebrities at the drop of a hat.  (see: Benedict Cumberbatch)  

But this girl.  If she had only been a talented, sexy, cool rapper/singer/songwriter/dancer then I’d be perfectly fine.  But even as I’m typing this, she is out there, running around town in a Charmander kigu and I just don’t know how to handle that.  

Amber Liu is dangerous.  Amber Liu must be stopped.

So You Want to Learn… List:

Other:

  • Tumblr tags: #learning _________ 
  • Can I become Fluent in ______ in ______ months/weeks/days?
     
    No. You can’t. 
  • Can I learn Japanese from just watching Anime/Korean from Kpop/Chinese from Wuxia films?
    Not on your life. Do you only speak the english you know from Spongebob? N’SYNC? The 300? Didn’t think so.
  • What about Rosetta Stone?
    For $180-$399 dollars? Are you insane? The program is built to teach you the Romantic languages.  If you buy Rosetta stone for $400, and pass up every free resource on this list, I doubt your desire to actually learn anything. Don’t do it to yourself. That is a lot of money you probably won’t get back.
  • But I heard that Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Arabic/etc is really difficult:
    Well if over a billion Chinese people can speak Chinese, why can’t you? No really, don’t let something like this bother you. No, this is not the ease of moving from a English to a Romance language or German, but hey, if you wanted to learn German (and all those ridiculous cases) you’d be doing that. 
  • But what about ______?
    I have knowledge on resources mostly limited to JPN/CHI/KOR classes. This is a participatory list, which I am more than grateful to take submissions for.
I repost this every two weeks whether I need to or not. It too good not to and the original compiler deserves that much respect.

On Tuesday, we looked at the basics of point of view; but there’s far more to it than simply choosing between 1st, 2nd and 3rd POVs.

The POV choice you make for your story will be based on a number of different factors, and will result in a number of different effects. It’s an…
