I have been busy reading about Kanji.
わたし は 漢字 が どくしょ しました。

And I've been finding it interesting!
おもしろい です ね!

Like 木 resembles a tree.
"木" にていします (help!)

And two (木) make a "wood" (林), while three make a forest (森)

How an eye (目) given "human legs" becomes "sight" (見)

And an eye (目) with "animal legs" becomes a shellfish (貝) and add another eye looking at the shellfish it becomes "to buy" (買)

How 人 (people) 口 (mouths) become "population" 人口 (mouths to feed)

A mouth (口) with lines coming out of it is to "speak" (言)

The sun (日) and moon (月) combine to be "bright" (明)

I also got my first copy of the Hiragana Times!
も、さいしょ の ひらがな タイムズ つきました!

I'm happy :-)
しあわせ です ^^

(Are there any other good tricks to memorising Kanji?)
