日本手話 is Back!  
Hello everybody!

I know it's been years since I last posted in here. Real life got in the way and learning Nihonshuwa took a backseat. I've had some time to devote to my hobbies this year, however. Went to Japan earlier in May, made some deaf Japanese friends, put my verrry basic and rusty Japanese signs to use, managed to master the yubimoji (but receptive skills still suck as I have to tell people to slowww down when they yubimoji me any word, really), took a couple of online JSL classes, and used my Nihonshuwa books instead of Kanzen master to review my Japanese grammar.

So far, it's been fun and rewarding as anything linguistic-related tend to excite me to my very bones. I don't see myself abandoning this hobby anytime soon. I thought it's about time I fire up this LJ again, make a few JSL videos, maybe inspire you guys to make your own JSL videos and post them here, and we can all share tips, thoughts, stories, and what-have-you. As I'm already done with Japanese language school since I graduated at the end of 2009, I'm using this community as a means to motivate myself to continue my self-study in both Nihongo and Nihonshuwa. Hopefully, it'll motivate you guys too, whatever your Nihongo/Nihonshuwa backgrounds are.

頑張ってください! ヽ(*・ω・)ノ
