    Aparently Corean people in North Carolina Think if you are born in America your not Considered Corean. Other than that were nice people unless your a hybrid like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T84rXduuzaU

    i know...i learned a little japanese...but when it really comes down to it...u dont use katakana much, u use hiragana a good portion...and u use a lotta kanji. and we both know kanji = the lose...ahaha.


    Yeah, you haven't - because in my experience, Japanese people are friendly. The Koreans at my school are fairly exclusive (unlike the Japanese I know, they don't have the excuse of being recent immigrants... but hey, I could have met different people too).

    Oh, and there's Hanul, which says a lot. =P
    =\, like i said its from personal experience. I was saying that as a fact, just whats happened to me. And Hanul...he's just got a lot, i mean A LOT of nationalism for corea/korea. Not sayin it's a bad thing.

    God, I hate nationalism. I mean, we're all nationalistic (and don't lie, you ARE!), but I hear so much hypocrisy around it - especially (no offence) with Americans. Like when they say that Japan's too nationalistic, can't have that, etc. - yeah, and we're talking about America, need I say more? Can't we just all accept that WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY! and that's okay?

    Kanji isn't that hard... I mean, you get furigana with books, so it's okay~ and you get to know some after a while (words like watashi/boku from reading, and kimi from music lyrics) without even having to study the kanji. ^_^

    Heheh, I love new immigrants. ^_^ In a conversation - you can *only* be Japanese or Canadian:

    Them: So, where are you from?
    Me: Uh... Canada.
    Them: Oh, cool!
    Me: ...yeah, so I guess you're from Japan. Judging from the Engrish. So do I look like an Asian with plastic surgery? o_O

    Oh, but the Engrish is great~ Catchy, too.

    nationalism...it happens. Thats why i said it's not a bad thing...just it's there. And besides, wouldnt it be weird to have nationalism for another country?...it wouldnt just make sense...ahahah. Think about it...say i'm american, but i have nationalism for France....it's so like...."WTF?!"...ahaha.

    kanji isnt that hard...until u get to characters that have like 15 strokes...ahaha! The highest is 23? i think...something like that..20 some...ahaha. Suxxors...and if i remember correctly, to be considered literate in kanji, u need to know over 600 kanji characters?...somethin like that. =\

    I don't lie about my nationalism. I'm afraid of my nationalism sometimes, but I don't lie about it. Don't ask me how nationalistic I am, it's really scary how nationalistic I am... >.>

    Nationalism disgusts me. It's sickening. We're all humans, who gives a fuck where you were born? Considering how much harm has come of nationalism in the past...

    American or not if youre overly nationalistic you need something better to do with your time then sit there wondering how awesome you are.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
