I regret not finishing my accounting classes; i don't like accounting; i find it boring. Now without knowledge about accounting, i cannot apply for an accounts post when all companies would naturally need people who know how to do accounts. Must have cost me a million jobs. Back to instant noodles, sigh.|
Watching cartoons is fun. It is easy, like playing some video game. Could also become addictive. Howeve, once something is easy and addictive, that is the time to be extra-careful. "What is happening to my brain and character?" is the first question to ask when that happens. If the answer that comes out is cloudy, be even more cautious. Possibly it could mean trouble ahead.
Having said that, I like to watch cartoons with my children. When they laugh, i also laugh, slightly louder in fact - just to show i am also following the storyline - which could be difficult considering my low and decreasing intelligence.
But i cannot follow japanese anime cartoons; for one, they look flat - the eyes move but the whole body is just the same frame. Maybe they want to save up on their graphics processing; maybe they want to make more money out of children. Also, and this is important i think - they can be jarring on the mind. Why do i say that? In japanese-type cartoons, you get to see swords, blades, knives and possibly blood. Why can't they do something like Shrek or Ratatouille or Sleeping Beauty? Secondly, they don't seem to have a strong storyline; it is one thing logically leading to another with some quirky dialogue in between; that's very unnatural, doesn't show any creativity; it's almost mechanical, like machine-made. However, i may be wrong about all this; perhaps the younger generation has found something to appreciate that i have failed to see because of my slowness.
Between devoting all of one's time to language studies or to watching cartoons, i think, maybe, half-half is good enough. Or, as in your example, 33.333% of the time for each for the two languages and the one cartoon time. Or maybe you can bring it down to 25.000% if you add korean dramas. I always cry before the show starts and when the man gets the girl in the end after an endless series of episodes, i have already lost the thread of the story but mercifully am too stupid to remember how to reload; of course i only watch the korean actress and completely (i mean completely) erase from my mind all images of the men, so that it is a strange show, with pockets of blankness everywhere.
But this is all silly man talk. Time should be balanced between study, work, rest and recreation. All work and no play makes Mark a dull old stupid silly man. But i have no work so how can i also play?!
Time flies when young so it should be used more carefully and productively. It's not just about studying hard; anyone can study hard if he or she decides to do so. What is more important is to study smart. There are many ways to do it. Find out how - to memorise things more easily, to understand concepts more accurately, and to apply methods to problems more precisely; know when a rule cannot be applied and why is that so, a question which should lead to an answer which in turn increases one's understanding of the subject matter.
There is a big, marvellous and expanding world of knowledge out there. Even in the dark arts of accounting. Someone picked a pebble or two at the beach, not knowing that a vast ocean of truth lay out there before him. For someone like me who can choose to have any knowledge he desires, all knowledge has become like grass on the field to a cow out of the barn. All look the same to me. Fortunately for you, not like me, i hope.
I used to write with absolutely zero error in grammar and spelling; now i am not so sure anymore. Maybe it's because my grey cells are already dying inside me. So being able to still write a bit here is considered a blessing.
i wish you well, always.
