Here is a translation of “Hello, dear journal, it is Scotto again” into Japanese:
「こんにちは、愛する日記、またスコットです」(konnichiwa, aisuru nikki, mata sukotto desu)
The greeting “konnichiwa” means “hello,” and “aisuru nikki” means “dear journal.” “Mata” means “again,” and “sukotto desu” is a way of saying “it is Scotto.” The final verb “desu” is a copula, similar to “is” in English, that is used to connect the subject of a sentence to a predicate.
Adios, 2022! I am hoping that 2023 is a bit more kind and good to us all… and maybe we can be better to one another.
I’m not holding my breath, though I will do what I can to do my part.
Going to try to be less of a grumpy old man, at the very least.
2 days in so far! https://instagr.am/p/Cm8CaQEOBBN/
