If you can’t see the video above, click here.

That’s right, today is my birthday! I recorded this video around two in the morning, which is why I say “konbanwa” instead of “konnichiwa.”

Anyway, here’s the dialog:

Good evening, this is Andy.


konbanwa , kono andi desu .

Today is my 24th birthday!


kyoo wa watashi no ni juu yon sai no tanjoo bi desu !

I’m going to eat a chocolate cake for my birthday!


tanjoo bi ni chokoreeto keeki o tabe ni iku yo !

It is also Pearl Harbor Day here in America.


matawa shinjuwan koogeki no hi wa koko amerika desu .

Even if it’s a memorial holiday, I’m glad to be associated with Japan in some way.


tatoe kinen shukujitsu , watashi wa nippon de ikutsu ka no hoohoo de kanrenzukeru koto ga deki te ureshiku omoimasu .

Fun fact: my dad’s birthday is the same as the Emperor of Japan: December 23rd!


omoshiroi jijitsu : otoosan no tanjoo bi wa , nippon no tennoo : juni tsuki nijusan nichi to onaji desu !

TheAndySan, now a Level 24 Bard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S: I’m gonna put up another video later on when I have my birthday cake. Stay tuned for that!
