laughter is the best medicine

I'm a 29 year old university grad living in the Bay Area with my husband, my dog who was not named after Aubrey Graham, and my son who was named after Gavin Rossdale.

I'm an aspiring polyglot with some Spanish and Japanese under my belt. My eyes are set for French, German, Italian, and Hawai'ian. I often get distracted from my language learning, and I tend to be more literate than verbal. You can find me as 'moon_goddess' on Memrise, or DM me for Lang-8 or Busuu contact information.

One thing I encounter at least once a week is a tourist (domestic and international) roaming around trying to find the streetcar stop for the F-line.

I help out (sometimes unsolicited) as much as I can. I tell them that the stop is on the “island”/partition in the street (up from where we are standing) between Walgreen’s and Game Stop.

I figure some of the other language nerds may have fun correcting and contributing translations for the following:

“The F-Line streetcar stop is on the partition over there.”
(路面電車 ーろめんでんしゃ
停留所 ー ていりゅうじょ)
La parada de F-tranvía está allí en la partición.

I haven’t had to add the following yet:

“Look for Walgreen’s and Game Stop.”
Mira a Walgreens y Game Stop.

Please feel free to add additional translations. Make sure to tag ‘San Francisco’! :)

Senshi Study Sesh!

This was the piece I submitted to the Meatball Head Sailor Moon art show in LA at Meltdown Comics! The show was this past weekend and was curated by the wonderful Nico Colaleo, who had a bunch of amazing artists in the industry contribute to the show! I heard that it was a blast, and wish I could have been able to make it.

So many thanks to my friends Gyimah, Ben and Scott for helping me out! I have much to learn, but was eager to try something new with environment, perspective, and colours. The colours have been tweaked since, but otherwise the drawing is the same :)

I’ll post some close ups later! Enjoy!

just in case there’s anyone in Ferguson who’s following info on tumblr as well

sadly, with the way the police are out, marching, and ready for the curfew (with dogs), there are some people that may need this

hushabyebb - degree mills are for-profit colleges that allow anyone willing to pay their usually inflated tuition in. They’re one of the reasons baccalaureate degrees are baseline now. I see a bunch of their adverts on my train into work, but now they’re for masters programs.

Why aren’t degree mills banned in the States?




Singing a song of angry men. It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again. When the beating of your heart echoes the beating of the drums, there is a life about to start when tomorrow comes. (These images are not mine. Praying for the people of Ferguson, and praying for justice for the crime against Mike Brown and all the other victims of blatant racism.)


I’ve thought about this so much today. Like so many parallels. Vive la Révolution!

Learning Japanese cheat sheets

I appreciate the two counters breakdown. Anyone who knows, studied, or is actively studying Japanese has had ‘fun’ (beware aftertaste of sarcasm) with the various counters.

I don't wish to get into an argument, but we don't exactly no what type of TOY gun the boy was holding, at least not in any account I read. An air rifle or airs oft gun is made to be realistic. It is actually very easy to make an mistake if it was one of those types of guns.

Michael Brown didn’t have a gun of any type. John Crawford was holding a toy BB gun inside Walmart in the aisle for said item when he was killed.
