RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Cut down on the distracting, cute avatars and I'll maybe try to read this as much as I can. Still, not bad if you can remember the kanji, it's a pain in the ass.

Problem, officer?

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Looks a hell of a lot better than mine, though I'm still learning. I've also been using normal pen, which reduces the fancy swishiness immensely.

Also, props for being able to do kanji. I can't even fathom how I'm going to remember all of them.

This. Katakana is too stiff for my liking, and Kanji is too complicated. But then, I also like swirly writing in any form.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Apparently some time after WWII (I think?) the Japanese government tried to get rid of Kanji and it ultimately failed. Which is a real pity, because that would make the language so much easier to learn.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

If you got rid of kanji the language would be impossible to learn.

Also, your 'sa' and 'wo' look a bit wide.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Hiragana and katakana are somewhat like our alphabet. Kanji, on the other hand, have meanings. And yes, there are a lot more kanji that hiragana and katakana.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Like, over 9000. While kana is only single parts, kanji is meant for whole words.
I was always puzzled how do you type in Japanese though. I mean, since they don't use uppercase it is possible to have the sixty characters on your keyboard, but what about kanji? Do the characters merge into words automatically or something?

I can type flower (hana) by going はな, but that's only hiragana, if you press spacebar after entering some gana, you can cycle through all the possible kanji.

はな --> 花 (this character means flower)
はな --> 鼻 (this character means nose)

You can set it up as a language on your computer. It's actually not complicated at all, but I was perplexed by it at first too.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Kanji is not meant for single words. They simply have meanings. Some kanji act as single words, but more often than not kanji are a part of a word. And yes, Admin is correct. Type shit in, press space, and you get kanji. You can switch between kata and hira as well.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

For anyone who doesn't know, kanji are Chinese characters, while hiragana and katakana are Japanese phonetic symbols, each one representing either a single vowel or a consonant teamed up with a vowel. In Chinese, each character (kanji in Japanese) represents a syllable, but they are ideographs rather than representing sounds in any systematic way.

I read somewhere that each syllable was originally a whole word, but that Chinese has simplified its syllables over the centuries by losing the final consonants, so the syllables have become rather ambiguous: it's now usually necessary to stick two of them together to make a word, the meaning of the second syllable helping to make clear which meaning of the first is intended, and that means that two-syllable words are now the norm in Chinese. With a few exceptions (or at least, I think there are some exceptions), each character is always pronounced the same way in Chinese no matter which word it appears in.

In Japanese, kanji are often pronounced completely differently in different words because they are there solely for their meaning and not their sound, and a single character can represent more than one syllable in Japanese, which is something that never happens in Chinese. Hiragana are used whenever kanji can't handle the job, and that means such things as verb endings which simply don't exist in Chinese. The system is therefore a bit of a mess in Japanese, but they seem to like it that way. Vietnamese used to be written using Chinese characters too, but they ditched it. Korean still uses Chinese characters along with phonetic symbols, but only in the south: in the Thunderbirds Republic of Korea they have dropped the Chinese characters completely and just use the phonetic writing system.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

looks good. Like previously said your ”さ” looks like a ”を”. Here's a tip make the sa look like the one in this picture---> [Image: 0.jpg] Another tip is not to "draw" the kanjis but to "write" them. Which means to do it by stroke order. The Japanese cringe when you don't write in stroke order. <--- that's what my teacher told me. Which is very important if you do 書道。(Japanese calligraphy). But it's fine.

Re: My Japanese Handwriting

Your Japanese Handwriting is better than mine Japanese Handwriting. I was tried so many times for make it good but still my Japanese Handwriting is so much dirty and hard to read. Give me a advise to make good Japanese Handwriting.

They really, really don't care. So long as it's legible, they don't give a shit.
