It's ok, I understand.

I think something got misconstrued in my last comment, so to clarify, I don't use nor learn Japanese for work/jobs... (In fact, I can't work due to several reasons, but I'd rather not get into them since it's personal...) I said that I don't ever plan to use business-level Japanese, so I don't see the need for me to learn those specific words.

I'm learning Japanese as a hobby, and because I hope to be able to listen to Japanese music without looking up the English lyrics, play Japanese games and watch Japanese anime and shows without subtitles, and read in Japanese.

You don't need Kanji to understand Japanese verbally, but you do need to learn at least the basics if you want to read Japanese books for example. (Which I do plan on one day, but for now, I'm more interested in understanding Japanese when it's spoken.)

Anyway, thank you, and Happy New Year to you as well! :)

Hey, sorry for my late reply, I have not really been online ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ

I hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful Christmas as well! Mine was pretty quiet and relaxing, but that was pretty much exactly what I needed :) 

Haha, now I also really want to try some Filipino food! Sadly, there are almost restaurants here that serve any though :( Guess I'd have to try making it myself, but then I would be unsure whether or not I did a good job... 

My mother does eat bread, but not much of it. She usually slices it very thinly and prefers to eat it with a lot of toppings. While I am the complete opposite. She does not like pastry that much in general, which is probably one of the reasons she is not very fond of baking too. 

True, authentic ingredients are definitely preferable. If you use too many alternatives the dish probably just becomes something else entirely.

I think it has also to do with the country you're in. Like Greek food served here in Germany is different to the one served in Greece; I feel like restaurants usually try to be authentic when they start, but then they just go with what is popular with the customers. Which makes sense, because they need to make money, but it is also pretty sad that a lot of people don't really want to try new things.

Self-study, basically. Lessons & private tutors were too expensive, and I have too much anxiety to be around a lot of random people in a small room, let alone a classroom lol. xD I agree. There are indeed many Kanji to learn, but since I don't see myself ever using the language in a business type setting, a lot of them aren't necessary. (At least the ones you use for business/jobs.)

Oh, I see. Thanks. :) Christmas went mostly well.
