It is no problem to get around in Tokyo with no japanese skills at all, and even limited english skills. Source: My german parents were visiting me regularly when I still studied there and always got around fine. It only becomes a problem in smaller cities/the countryside. If she sticks to the touristy spots and areas, she'll be fine. Of course she'll violate countless unspoken rules, but since she's a foreinger nobody is going to openly criticize her for it. She'll never know, and will feel like she has always fit in perfectly.
Here is an unpopular one: If you only know the movies and never bothered to read the books, you know nothing about the actual story. The writing and small details made all the actual magic happen (sorrylame joke) Edit: This also means that the "cursed child" and "magical beasts" are only lame and slow shadows of the main series. Sorry, but you just can't put as much love and detail in a play or movie than in a novel.
I don't get why so many posts here are about her and Kpop when she hasn't shown any interest in it yet? It's kinda annoying. I know she loves to jump on bandwagons, but there is so much more out there...? Maybe I'm just not on the same page as all of you because I personally don't like pop music at all...
I'd love to have more doll-like features, but in a natural, actually still human way. Like Gemma Ward for example, I kinda dislike the harsh, eye-enlarging etc. make-up/ps most "living dolls" have to put on. As for being an online personality, hell no, not even if I was paid a lot of money for it. I am naturally shy and awkward, being in the center if attention is the last thing I want. No. Really. No.
Quoting my own post from almost a year ago. Jude really came a long way... Still had one of their pics in my insprational folder. See attached comparison... (I can confidently say I'm not jealous anymore lol) I hope Jude will be happy in their skin one day soon.
I'm laughing so hard at how she thinks she is poor with all her nice clothes, wigs, shoes, hair-dye, phone, camera, contacts, make-up, con trips, a car, starbucks etcetc... Lon, what you experience is not poverty. It is just poor money management. (I'm sorry, this got under my skin for private reasons.)
I think it is normal for Japanese classes to ask for their students to memorize Hiragana and Katakana at least within the first week. Iirc on my first day my class was told to learn both and it was expected from day two that we all knew them, because it is kinda the base for everything else.
