the better my japanese gets the more I get annoyed when people assume I don't speak it

I mean I don't really blame them considering the vast majority of gaijin in japan are tourists but I'm still like

stannis teethgrind

(I really ought to read more clash of kings considering the amount of references I have been making to it but I got distracted by silent hill lps oops)

anyway today I visited the imperial palace gardens and they were REALLY PRETTY and I took a bunch of pictures but I can't show them to you because I seem to have misplaced my microSD adapter and I am not going to email them all to myself individually because that is tedious as fuck. if it doesn't turn up by sunday I'll go down to kyoto station and get another one sigh

and tomorrow is culture day which means I get to sit around in my room all day like a slug

part of me is like WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU YOU LIVE IN KYOTO GO OUTSIDE AND DO SOMETHING COOL

and the rest of me is like

HMMMMM NOPE

When you show you do speak it, are people ever pleasantly surprised? :D

HAHA IT DEPENDS sometimes they are (like yesterday when I asked this lady what the free sample was and she was like AH YOU SPEAK JAPANESE) but oftentimes they like...continue to try to speak to me in english...even though I am speaking japanese to them...it is really weird

I think gaijin being able to speak japanese is rare enough that some have difficulty processing it when it does actually happen
