One of my precious professors told me he showed my podcast to ppl in China and they LOVED it.
Meaning, if I actually make these podcasts for ESL/EFL, people will use them.
More importantly, my professor must have been impressed enough to BRING MY STUFF TO ANOTHER COUNTRY bc he was training another university’s TEFL instructors. Like, you don’t understand. This dude does Corpus Linguistics for fun and is my hero.
Like, oh my gosh, he made my day today.

I left you in the spring, just as the cherry blossoms (桜 - sakura) started to bloom. It was then I started to enjoy and appreciate Japan even more. As the weather got warmer I started to venture both outside of my tiny apartment and Osaka, the city that I call home, more often. I made more friends, traveled tremendously, and started a second job. By the time the petals started to fall only a short week after fully blooming - both a beautiful and heartbreaking sight - I was a busy bee. These past few months have been hectic, but they’ve been good.
During cherry blossom season it’s common for the people of this country to pack a lunch, head to the nearest viewing spot (there are so many, yet every one still manages to be horrendously crowded), lay out a blue tarp (the kind we New Orleanians put on our shredded roofs after a hurricane), crack open a beer, and enjoy the view. It’s called 花見 (hanami - flower viewing). The Japanese will find any excuse to drink, but you’ve really got to hand it to a culture that takes the time to just sit down and appreciate nature.
remember these, kids? they used to be so popular on deviantART way back in like 2008 and i remember i used to be so pumped about doing one, though i never really did. so, last night i even had a dream about doing one of these, so i put together some scenarios and here we are, haha! feel free to reblog or save the template for yourself if it catches your fancy!
I AM SO DOING THESE.
I WILL MAKE TIME DAMMIT.
