Happy New Year everyone!
This is Hikosaemon
I though I'd make my first vid in Japanese for a while
This is January 3rd
And I am in Akihabara
You can see how busy it is here right now
I'm here to get memory cards and stuff since I'm off to NZ next week
Just to get as souvenirs
Right, so it's now 2013
Let's hope this year finally is a good one
We've had some pretty crappy last couple of years
I haven't been making many vids in Japanese either
I'll make this in Japanese and subtitle it in English
So what am I going to do with this blog and this channel this year?
First up, I haven't been making enough vids in Japanese
I admit it!
But even so, I still made lots of interesting vids in Japanese last year
We got Megwin on, Jet Daisuke...
In Japanese we did lots of topics, like political chats
We did lots of interesting vids like that
I really want to bring more content like that to this channel in Japanese
I've had trouble with time this year since I changed jobs
I can't find the time like I used to to put into video making
And I stopped doing subtitles as a result
But I want to get back into that, and using Japanese more in my blogs and Twitter
Is what I want to aim more for this year
So what else...
Ah, we've arrived at Akibao where I came to shop a bit
Ahhhh....kebabs look nice....
Right, let's see if this shop has what I want...
Right! So what sort of things am I going to do this year?
For starters, I want to vlog once a week
And in Japanese, I want to be a bit brave
And pick lots of topics, not just about gaijins and Japanese
I also want to do vids about showing Japanese perspectives on issues more
But also show views Japanese don't often get to see
Like this year we got a guy on who was anti-whaling
But we also got on the famous Texas Oyaji who supports Japan's right to it
That was really fun
I also have Honkey friend who is a naturalized Japanese citizen who I want to get on soon
I want to show people lots of different world views maybe you're not used to
I think that would be fun and interesting
And I really would love to see more people, Japanese in particular, commenting
What else...?
My blog and twitter and stuff are going well
But I've gotten lazy and never write in Japanese lately
So I've gotta use Japanese more this year
The main thing is to keep having fun
I'm sure this year will be full of new gadgets, political topics and stuff
Have fun and make let's all make it a great 2013 together
I have some more shopping to do here in Akihabara...
So that's really it I guess
So stay tuned!
So my question for all of you today
So I want to know what we call in English our 2013 New Years Resolution
I guess it is our new year "Decision" or "Commitments" in Japanese
What kind of resolutions have you made for 2013?
For example, right now I'm really know screwed, I'm so fat
I say this every year
But now I'm the heaviest I've ever been
So I really need to fix that this year
So I don't know if you guys remember StreetEnglishTV from a couple of years back
There was this guy always waving his hands going "yoyo" and stuff
He's been off YouTube for a while
But I found a gym he runs
It's near my work
You can do kick boxing there, so I am thinking about starting kick boxing
I have to speak English at home more also
I mainly speak in Japanese - since this is Japan of course
But I want him to be able to speak both English and Japanese
So I will try to speak more in English
What about all of you?
What are your resolutions?
Next, I'm heading here...
See you guys later!
