Who cares about what people think of you. It's not like you'll really see those people again. I'm sure you could borrow someone's sister and go.

Everyone loves hello kitty, she's so flipping adorable. I don't know why asian girls love sanrio, but they do. I love going into the sanrio store where i live because the girls that work their have japanese music on and I've discovered some new artist by asking them. I've also had some pretty cool conversations with them about ayumi hamasaki.

Well, try to keep in touch with her! Maybe, she is just busy because of exams. Be patient, and mail her a list of questions you wanna know, and then, also tell her about your life a lot, and where you live, and your future plans. Thats funny :D

I had a 15 year old Japanese girl from Aomori (who was a penpal with my stepbrother) stay at my father's house. I met her, and she was very sweet and tried very hard with English (she came to study). Her name was Nako. She made me an origami crane, too, which I still have. :)

Its really funny ^^ but if you register like I did, you'll get like 10 ppl teaching you japanese at the same time, its a lot of emails to reply but you learn though... ugh~ ><

I also got tons of emails from africans who couldnt speak japanese, hardly english.... I think they misunderstood, because they went like "when u go to Ghana/south africa u have to now the turist attractions" ugh~...

Hellkite
7 Sep 2008, 4:08 am
yes, just do not reply to those you do not like to talk with. they leave you then. :D
and yea, i get over 50 mails a day. hahahaha. thats a lot of fun. and everyday 1 or 2 snail mails. thats very cool! hahahaha. do you also already snail mail? and, how old are your pen pals? mine from 15-26. :P hahahaha :D

Grey Fox
7 Sep 2008, 7:36 am
Very laughy aren't you?

I just prefer to talk with one or two people really, though it can take a while between E-mails with my pen pals. mainly because they're mostly wealthy private school students who spend the better part of the day studying.

hihihihi. japanese and korean really want to study a lot to get a good job. please, understand this, and forgive them. :)
