1- Get your skin assessed regularly by a skin specialist who can select the right skincare prescription for your skin type and condition

2- Stay away from the sun and/or use a sunscreen daily to prevent photoageing from occurring

3- Exercise daily to improve blood circulation to your skin

4- Sleep well so as to allow your skin to repair and regenerate

5- Drink plenty of water to keep your system well flushed of toxins and wastes

"A key aspect of deliberate practice is pushing yourself just beyond your current capacity. The purpose of pushing yourself is to make the capacity that is out of your reach, your natural capacity over time. That requires consistency, which is why scientists describe deliberate practice as not being enjoyable; you’re actively fighting against the body and mind.

Weight lifting: I start off each month with a max on each machine, and aim to increase the amount I can lift by at least 5 pounds. With each session I’m less exhausted afterwards, and by the end of the month I can lift that amount with zero effort.

Studying: When I first started it took me 5 days to completely master a chapter, to know all of the definitions, all the examples, and all the models. By “master,” I mean being able to recall at least 90% of the chapter from pure memory. At t...

Every native-level, non-ethnic Japanese speaker I know got there with two tricks:

1) Working for an extended period of time in a (mostly) non-translation related position at a Japanese company

2) Hanging out near exclusively with Japanese friends

And a third that really helps with #2:

3) Having some shared hobby with said Japanese friends—whether it be mountain climbing or sitting on a couch playing video games, something that gives them something to discuss other than gaijin-ness.

- Warren Buffett's 5/25 rule.

Make a list of the 25 things you want to do in life. Now do the top 5. And NEVER THINK ABOUT THE OTHER 20 EVERY AGAIN.

Else they will take time away from the 5 that are most important to you.

- Stand next to the smartest person in the room.

Harold Ramis did it (Bill Murray). Steve Jobs did it (Steve Wozniak). Craig Silverstein did it. (who? Larry Page.) Kanye West did it (Jay-Z).

I've done it repeatedly. (Yoda). I have a motto: "I am the dumbest person in the room". Then it helps me to find the smartest person in each room.

The smartest person in the room is going to do something. Watch what they do. Something special. Just follow them without asking questions.

-To really become a good conversationalist over the long term it is necessary to a...

"I've been speed reading for over 10 years and there are a bunch of methods that work, but one of the best is priming. For a non-fiction book: take 2 min to read the front and back cover and table of contents. This gives you a good idea what the book is about. Then skim the first paragraph of each chapter and then the first sentence of each paragraph in the same chapter (most useful info is there). After that you have an idea what the chapter is about and you can retain the info better when you speed read."

"For me the benefits of retinoids have been firmer skin with more bounce, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, smoother skin, and smaller appearing pores. The brightening and evening of skin tone was not as prominent a benefit of retinoids for me. I attribute those changes more to other products in my skincare routine such as AHAs, vitamin C, licorice root extract, niacinamide and alpha arbutin to name a few."

Native Japanese speakers verbalize a situation based on their observational point of view, which is different than that of native English speakers. As a result, native English speakers learning Japanese cannot verbalize the same situation in the same way as a native Japanese speaker. Verbalized sentences from native English speakers learning Japanese sound unnatural to native Japanese speakers. Likewise, verbalized sentences 39 from native Japanese speakers can be difficult for native English learning Japanese to understand. In such cases, the observational point of view can affect the role of the speaker ‟s and listener‟s responsibilities in Japanese and English. These different observational points of view lead to different situation construal in English.

"Psycholinguistic explorations, psychoanalytic case studies, and finally their own real life experiences unequivocally indicate that for bilinguals the two languages differ in their emotional impact (especially when the second language has been learnt after puberty), the first being the language of personal and emotional involvement, and the second the language of distance and detachment (or at least the language having less emotional influence on the individual)." x

私は親ほど離れた仲良しの人に 敬語とタメ口を混ぜて話してるかな~

普通は敬語、盛り上がった時とか突っ込み等はタメ口が混ざります。 「何でよ~!」「本当に!?」「ありがとう!」 みたいな感じです。

写真の雰囲気がすごく好きです(顔文字etc) フォローさせていただきます(顔文字)

When someone ask me "How was the test/exam?"

It's OK> 「まあまあだったよ/でしたよ」「普通かな」 It's not good. 「いまいちだったよ/でしたよ」 「微妙だった」 It's not bad.「結構できたよ/できました」 It's great/perfect.「バッチリだったよ/でしたよ」

  • "In college I had a professor that changed the way I wrote papers forever. After his class I became an English major and loved writing papers.
    • He gave a formula to our class: If you had an eight page paper to write, that means you need to write roughly 16 paragraphs. If you write an introductory paragraph and conclusion, that leaves 14 body paragraphs. Write down 14 ideas that support your thesis, rearrange them to make sure there is a natural thought progression, and before you know it you had an 8-page well-structured essay."
  • The SEER method:
    • State the main point.
    • Example that backs it up.
    • Explain how it backs it up/why it matters.

  • hear word/phrase in context (audio or preferably audio+visual). no use of additional subtitles in any language (incl not looking at JP subtitles)
  • replay section until it's possible to catch the target word/phrase, then look it up - first time to see its written form. best to do JP definition rather than JP<->EN translation.
  • replay section, now knowing the exact / written word/phrase - able to recognise the single new word(etc) in a long or unclear string of text
  • record audio for the section as an anki card (front contains audio only with no text, reverse shows the new vocab with ふりがな and JP definition, + EN translation for just new content and only if required.)
  • make use of screenshots of moment/scene from which vocab is derived
