*hides herself under a pillow*  
Wah... I didn't do that well on my oral test for Japanese. Sure my Sensei said that I did very good, but I screwed up A LOT!! I couldn't remember what umbrella, pencil, chair, & newspaper were. I also screwed up on ku-ji & yo-ji. Stupid numbers and their counters.

And the worst thing..... I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO KNOW DO ITASHIMASE. WAH!!!

Stupid me. Why couldn't they have offered Japanese in high school. By now, I'd be a whole lot better. So much for learning a new language at 26. *head desks*

I just had problems with the oral. I don't do well when speaking it to others. However, if you give it to me on paper, I'm an ace. Infact half the stuff we learned was quite easy for me. I'm not having a problem learning the language. I'm having problems speaking it. If my Sensei would have given me the test on paper, I'd probably would have aced it.

I didn't mean to get you down. I was just bummed that I couldn't have done better. Maybe if I had more time to study. 4 1/2 days was not enough study time. I tried to sign up for a Thursday time slot. That would have at least given me a week to study. But everyone rushed me to the board and took all the Thursday spots. So I had to take a Tuesday one. Ugh, wish I had more time to study. >.

Whatever Japanese genius decided to make everyone catagorize items by their shape BEFORE counting them needs to be stabbed in the eye with ippon enpitsu. e_e.

Anyway, Japanese is hard, but it'll get easier if you just keep at it and pratice a lot. Besides, there's no way you did worse on your oral than I did when I was taking my level I midterm. XD I was supposed to go to the "store" with my 1000 yen, ask how much all of the [whatever]s cost, and then buy the one I could afford. However, I was so nervous that I forgot to look at the paper (which told me what to buy), so I was just asking what everything cost, totally not realizing it was pointless since I had no bloody idea what I was supposed to be getting. Thank god sensei loved me and knew I actually was good at Japanese. 9___9;;;.
