There's no real wrong reason to learn Japanese, so I don't mean to demean anyone else for their reasons for learning, but I'm learning primarily because I think the language is really cool, secondly because it's the only language spoken by living members of my family other than english(note: I am not japanese), and also by the majority of our family friends. A more minor reason is that I may pursue higher education in Japan idk. I'm not that big of a fan of anime anymore honestly, I watched a ton when I first got into it but I lost intrest in it pretty quickly tbh. I still love Japanese culture in general though, however I will agknowlege the socio-economical problems in Japan today - I'm not a completely shameless weeb, the country absolutely isn't perfect, despite my love for the culture
no but seriously, I'm still pretty terrible at the language ngl.
a short list of what I have so far
