I spent my Junior year of university in Yamaguchi, Japan, and am currently studying for N1 to get into a post-grad program to become an interpreter. My understanding of Japanese has swung from textbook to practical and back to textbook, but I'm always trying to improve it!

I would like to caution you about using power tools...it's very dangerous to use certain power tools with the hand that they were not designed to be used with.

comment How can I become ambidextrous?
I'm the same way. For all intents and purposes I'm left-handed (and proud of it); I write and eat with my left hand. However, I play baseball and bowl like a righty...swinging a bat lefty is as strange as holding a pen in my right hand. I just do whatever feels comfortable. As for "training" to write with your off hand, people have been trying that for the longest time. My great uncle was a lefty forced to write with his right hand, and his penmanship was so bad that he had to buy a new-fangled typewriter so anyone could read what he wrote.

comment Experiences of PhotoReading
I know there is a technique for some people with eidetic memories, where they can look at a page, then go back and read it whenever they want, word-for-word. That's not the same thing though.
