初め ~ On the first day …

… I said “Let there be a blog”. And so there was.

Thanks for arriving here through whatever means; whether through a botched Google search, on purpose, or because you just wanted to read a few essays. I plan for this blog to be an educational one, despite the rather irrelevant URL. Essays I have written, interesting words  and proverbs and other English language topics will take up a great portion of this blog. Various other interesting tidbits will be scattered here and there too 😀 However, please note my age and experience before taking any of this too seriously:

  • My first language is Cantonese, and second language was Mandarin. I had to attend ESOL in school because of my poor command of the English language. Though I live in a predominantly English community, my mother tongue is spoken at home, at church and also here-and-there in the Asian community
  • I have no PhD, Masters, or even a Bachelor in English, let alone anything else. I have developed my comprehension and handling of the English Language purely through extensive – and at times excessive – reading, and by interacting  in an English-based environment
  • How old do I seem? Can you tell by my manner of writing? Well, I’m fourteen years old ^^ I’m in Year 10 (Second year of College/High School) and my lack of maturity is probably very prominent. The contents of this blog will be based around what the New Zealand Curriculum is feeding me, so if there is anything on here that you do not particularly agree with, please feel free to correct me as necessary

Let me just take this time to just once again thank you for being here and taking time out of your day to view this blog 😀
