This is a new time of the day to write a blog post but I figured I do another. Today was a bit of a surprise with my brother’s dog Emma, a golden lab, having a seizure again. We quickly took her to the vet this morning and learned that she most likely has brain cancer. Really sad and tough to have to face. We feel bad for her since she’s no longer acting once like she used to. Hopefully the meds prescribed will perk her up a bit in the coming days. My brother and sister-in-law are keeping a close eye on her now to watch for anymore seizures. Maybe they’ll stop but no ones for certain yet…
Japanese study has been progressing like always. Learning new vocabulary everyday and listening as much as I can to natives speaking. I’m starting to hear more words get repeated quite a bit. Over time I’m sure I’ll notice even more common vocabulary that gets repeated a lot during extended conversations. It’s tempting to keep looking around online for “improved” and “better” ways to become a Japanese speaker but I think I need to trust my routine. I know it’s for sure better than doing nothing!
I learned my normal 5 new words today from WaniKani but picked up an additional new word from the Nihongo con Teppei podcast. 「応援」is the new word which means support, cheer or assistance. I’m sure I’ll hear it elsewhere in the future if I can remember it lol.
