Mari,
Thanks for your tips, I think because nuances between Japanese and English are so different that it is hard to translate directly.
Think in Japanese and write in Japanese is the best I would say for me.
I have a long way to go!

I have developed a bad "bakka" habit. On my usual daily commute through traffic hell, instead of shouting explatives in Eigo, I now (without thinking) holler bakka bakka bakka!!! instead...is this a good or bad sign for learning Nihongo?

And a 75-sai obaasan who lives here in MN keeps calling ME "gaijin" (sans bakka :)) - go figure...

Hey Mari,
This whole enjyo topic is bad. Why do people want to do such strange things at work? Maybe they are just too bored...
I was wondering, when you write your blog, do you think in Japanese, then translate into English in your head?
OR
Do you try to think AND write in English?
I would like some advice, because I think you are very smart!
