~Japanese Word/Phrase o' the Week~

What is the point of this page?  I have no idea, just that every week, I'll have a Japanese word or phrase that I think is useful or humorous.  =^.^=  Therefore, this is J-WEEKLY!  I study Japanese and have been loving and learning it for over three years now.  I'll never claim to be very good, but my major in college is Japanese, so let's hope I can communicate with reasonable accuracy.  Come learn Japanese from...me!  x.X;

Note: I put kanji characters directly on the webpage.  To view these correctly you need  Japanese language settings on your computer or a Japanese word-processing program, otherwise they appear as boxes or funky symbols.

Kanji  [Hiragana]  Romanji ~ English


Sonna ni nekura ni nattenai de!  Odorou yo!  Tanjoubi da!

Don't be so depressing! Let's dance! It's your birthday!

It's been a while since I've posted a long random sentence like this.  So here you go.  You don't really learn anything with this, it's just supposed to be silly.  Hell, I dare you to go around Japan saying it.  That thought entertains me.  Sorry if this one's dull though, I'm too lazy to give you something educational...or the kanji...or explanations of the words.  Oh well!  Next week is #50, so I'll have to think of something good!!
