We are well into the month of September, 2022.
A typhoon approaches, but here in Tokyo, we still have blue skies.
Our idiom for today is learn the ropes.
This means to learn the basics of something, like a job.
Today is my first day on the job. I still need to learn the ropes, but so far, so good.
I started to ride horses about a month ago. I'm still learning the ropes, but I am enjoying my new hobby.
