Gomenasai, my name is Ken-Sama.

I’m a 27 year old American Otaku (Anime fan for you gaijins). I draw Anime and Manga on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior Japanese games. (Disgaea, Final Fantasy, Persona series)

I train with my Katana every day, this superior weapon can cut clean through steel because it is folded over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my sword license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.

I speak Japanese fluently, both Kanji and the Osaka dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%

When I get my Japanese visa, I am moving to Tokyo to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Studio Ghibli or a game designer!

I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.

Wish me luck in Japan!

Howdy, my name is Kenichi Smith.

I’m a 27 year old Japanese Toonaholic (Cartoon fan for you foreigners). I draw cartoons and comics on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior American games. (Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty)

I train with my 1911 every day, this superior weapon can shoot straight through steel because it kicks ass , and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my gun license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.

I speak English fluently, both the Midwestern and the East Coast accents, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their Constitution, which I follow 100%

When I get my American visa, I am moving to New York to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Nickelodeon or a game designer!

I own several cowboy outfits, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to America, so I can fit in easier. I keep cool to my elders and seniors and speak English as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.

Wish me luck in America!

Perfect

This reminded me of my Korean buddy Phillip trying to look like a redneck.

3 things to help you know Middle-Autumn festival!

wordoor-chinese:

1.When is the festival?

 Middle Autumn Festival is the second greatest festival in China. It takes place on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese calendar during full moon. This festival can take place in September or October,and it’s in 8th September this year (2014). The Festival receives different names such as Mid-Autumn Festival, Moon Festival and Mooncake Festival.

2.Why do we have this festival?

This festival is celebrated since more than 3000 years ago, when the ancient Chinese believed the Moon had a relationship with the seasons and agriculture. This is why the offer sacrifices to the Moon and to the autumn days.

There is another version about the origin of this festival:

“In the ancient past, there was a hero named Hou Yi who was excellent at shooting. His wife was Chang’e. One year, the ten suns rose in the sky together, causing great disaster to people. Yi shot down nine of the suns and left only one to provide light. An immortal admired Yi and sent him the elixir of immortality. Yi did not want to leave Chang’e and be immortal without her, so he let Chang’e keep the elixir. But Feng Meng, one of his apprentices, knew this secret. So, on the fifteenth of August in the lunar calendar, when Yi went hunting, Feng Meng broke into Yi’s house and forced Chang’e to give the elixir to him. Chang’e refused to do so. Instead, she swallowed it and flew into the sky. Since she loved her husband very much and hoped to live nearby, she chose the moon for her residence. When Yi came back and learned what had happened, he felt so sad that he displayed the fruits and cakes Chang’e liked in the yard and gave sacrifices to his wife. People soon learned about these activities, and since they also were sympathetic to Chang’e they participated in these sacrifices with Yi.”

3.How do people celebrate  this festival?

The Moon has a very special meaning. It represents peace, prosperity and family gathering. This is why on this occasion families get together to taste the Mooncake, spend time with friends or family and look at the moonshine. Nowadays they also send text messages to their loved ones wishing them well.

Mooncake is a typical Chinese dessert that is eaten during the Moon festival. Traditional Mooncakes are round or rectangular. The creamy filling is normally made of lotus seed paste, surrounded by a relatively thin crust and it can contain duck egg yolk, which symbolized the full Moon. It is usually eaten in small portions accompanied by Chinese tea.

How Nora Lum Became Rapper Awkwafina Instead of A Meat Inspector - NBC News

If you asked Nora Lum as a teen what she wanted to be when she grew up, she could tell you exactly what she didn’t want to be: a sonogram technician, a meat inspector, an air traffic controller—all jobs her father considered stable, and encouraged her to pursue.

“My dad was like, ‘You gotta do this, man. These are the hot jobs of the millennium,’” 26-year old Lum said, waving her hands enthusiastically while adjusting her signature frameless glasses. “I was like, ‘I highly doubt that.’”
