My name is Julian, I'm 19 years old and enlisting in the United States military, particular branch the U.S. Air Force. My interests are hiking, running, gym work, studying foreign culture (Japan especially) and sightseeing to name a few! I would really like to learn Japanese better since I may end up going overseas while I'm serving and I will eventually travel to Japan one day and it would really help if I could read and speak Japanese. If there are any natives of Japan or anyone that lives in Japan right now on the forum that can help me answer some questions I have I'd really appreciate it. I've been trying to study Japanese lately but it's proving difficult.
Heyy everyone... Looks like I'm one of the younger users here, eh?
