What makes this an epic beginning to the journey of a lifetime?
Harry Potter. Ron Weasley. Hermione Granger. The three protagonists of the legendary series that revolutionised the fantasy genre for good. Think you’ve been reading excitement? Think again, as Harry Potter and the gang team up to save the wizarding world in the years to come.
From muggle madness to wondrous wizardry, Harry Potter began to realise that his life had more meaning to it than what lay on the surface. With fate tugging at his robes, Harry leapt out into a world he never knew before. With Hagrid (the wizard who came to get Harry), by his side, he came to know that where one is may not necessarily be where they belong.
Taking the train to a muggle-forbidden world, Harry’s astonishment had become overshadowed by the vast castle they called Hogwarts. The sheer eye-opening things Harry saw, felt and experienced opened his heart for good. He never confined his meaning and self-worth to the shallow, mindless confusion of Privet Drive ever again.

Why is Japanese such a beautiful, mystical language?
Memorable phrases, origins and quirky facts you didn’t know!
Ohayo! (Hey!) Genki desu ka? (How are you?) Anata no onamae wa? (What’s your name?) Watashi no namae wa Nabiha desu! ^-^ (My name is Nabiha!) Kawaii? (cute?) Zutto! (Very!) 🙂 🙂 🙂
Wow! Did you get through that first paragraph alright? No worries! Chances are you’re still learning this wonderful, unique language like I once was. Where did the Japanese language come from? Are there any other languages it can relate to?
During the 12th century, the development of Hiragana and Katakana (two profound Japanese writing systems) were derived from Kanji. Today, Kanji,Hiragana and Katakana are all used in Japanese writing. Hiragana is understood to be the least complicated of the three.
So many English words have been in-built into Japanese phrases. These include “teburu” (table), “biru” (beer), “gurasu” (glass), “aisu” (ice), “takushi” (taxi) and “hoteru” (hotel). From the 18th century, in fact! If you’re a native English speaker looking to learn Japanese, then you’re off to a comfortable start!
I would say that Korean is my next favourite language after Japanese! Both languages are so similar in terms of “general structure, vowel harmony, lack of conjunctions, and the extensive use of honorific speech, in which the social rank of the listener heavily affects the dialogue.” (according to today translations)
“Japanese has an extremely complicated writing system, consisting of two sets of phonetic syllabaries (with approximately 50 syllables in each) and thousands of Chinese characters called “kanji”, approximately 2,000 of which the Ministry of Education has designated as required learning before high school graduation.” Today translations

“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much as doing as simply messing about in boats”
The Wind in the Willows – Kenneth Grahame
This fine piece of children’s literature amazes me just so! The simple, timeless tale of Mole discovering Spring and its beauty, not through nature, but through the wonderful friends he makes throughout! From frightened to fearless (although Toad could be described as fearless yet reckless, contrary to Mole’s shy demeanor).
The story line itself demonstrates the sheer beauty of nature and its wildlife that we overlook! Creatures as small as toads, moles, badgers weasels are magnified by their spirits and unique schools of perception and thought; shone on by each character.
Mole’s instant introduction as a shy, timid creature immersing himself in “Spring Cleaning” emphasizes a metaphorically and literally “small” start to a wonderful adventure. Pathetic fallacy can be observed by the size of Mole’s house as well as Mole’s timidity.
“..Oh bother!…Hang Spring Cleaning!” Time to go outside! This sudden outbreak of Mole into the Spring day illustrates a sudden change in atmosphere. The mood is lifted, and the protagonist can be seen to now lead an open mind and heart towards new things.
Joined shortly after by his fellow antagonist; Rat, pathetic fallacy allows for the ongoing smooth current of the river to keep Mole idle and satisfied with the new surroundings.
What about Toad? His character can be summarized as wild-spirited yet undeniably foolish at the same time! How would he be able to cope without old Rat and Mole by his side?
I hope you venture out on your own adventure, and read The Wind in the Willows! Such a perfected piece of children’s literature, indeed.
