Beyond Sleepy’s (pillow fort?) study log

ん! I’ve just finished my interpretation of pages 14-16:)

🍀Here it is🍀 (pages 12-16)

——— 12-13 ———

そこおいといていいぞー

It’s fine if you place it there

なんか俺体力低下してんなぁ…

My physical strength is deteriorating…

(What is なんか tho?)

手がふるえる…

My hand is shaking…

おまえさ、近所にあいさつで配る粗品とか用意してるか?

Hey man, shouldn’t you prepare some kind of greeting (a small gift or something) for your new neighbors?

そうかそういうのしなきゃな

Oh right, I ought to do something like that.

頭いいなおまえ

That would be smart.

じゃあ俺が用意してきてやる、おまえ片付けてろ

I’ll prepare it for you. You can clean up here.

変なもん持ってくんなよ

Don’t bring anything strange.

俺はプリンが好きなんだ

As for me, I like pudding.

いやおまえの嗜好はいい

My taste (in dessert presumably) is good.

(Basically, “you can trust my gift-giving sensibilities. You’re giving pudding”)

…ところでさよつばどこだ?

By the way, where is Yotsuba?

いなくなった

She’s disappeared.

——— 14-16 ———

まあ腹減ったら帰ってくるだろ

Well, she’ll come back when she gets hungry I guess.

んじや、みつけたらひろっとくわ

I’ll bring her back if I find/see her

ああ、そしてくれ

Ah, please do so

んじや

??? (Something like “well I’m off then”?)

んたのむ

Thanks for doing this

(I guess is the sentiment)

さて… どっから手をつけるかな…

Well then… What should I do next?

そういや、これはどこた捨てんのかな…

Ah, yes. Where am I supposed to dispose of this?…

こんにちは!

Good day!

もしかしてこちらに引っ越してこられた方ですか?

Could it be that you’re the person moving in here?

はい?そうですけど

Yes? That’s right, but…

やっぱり!

I knew it!

私となりに住んでおります

I’m your next door neighbor, I’m called Ayase.

よろしくお願いします

Nice to meet you

ああいえ、こちらこそよろしく

Ah (no?), likewise

そのダンボールゴミに出す分ですか?

Are you looking to get rid of that cardboard trash?

ああ、そうしたいんだけど

Ah, it seems like I’d want to, but

ダンボールはですね資源日に出すんです金曜日ですね

Regarding the cardboard, recycling day is on Friday

あそこの電柱の所ネットがあるじゃないですか

Over there by the telephone pole there (isn’t? Wut :open_mouth:) a net

あそこに出すんですよ

That’s where you throw it

あ、そうなんだ

Ah, is that so
—— end ——

Ah, there’s a bunch that’s unclear to me but oh well😌

I’ve also done my Wanikani and Anki routine, and the JP1K deck is really motivating to me😁 The way the example sentences use the vocabulary that’s already introduced gives me daily ego boosts from being able to read sentences I’ve never seen before on my first try🙃 And the deck is built around the 1000 most frequently words in slice of life anime and Japanese dramas so it’s also motivating to be building a foundation for being able to gather the gist of what is going on in my manga and anime even before I start looking up words❤️

Classes are staring again at uni and the workload is actually kinda hefty so once again I’m readjusting my expectations for my own JP studying.

  • Every day without exception: Wanikani, Anki, and :four_leaf_clover:.
  • When I have the excess time/energy: Cure Dolly and anime.
  • On hiatus: writing practice.

As for the Genki study group, I’ll attend on Saturday and see how I feel:)
