Hello! I'm learning Japanese!

comment I can't quite understand the meaning of 自分でも
The Tanaka corpus (known to be full of errors, mind you) has these three sentences: (1) 「自分でもそれが解っているんだけと。」 = "I know it myself."   (2) 「自分でもそれをやってみなさい。」 = "Do it by yourself."   (3) 「自分でもそれをやってみます。」 = "I'll do it by myself too."  You've supplied sentences 1 and 3 with the translations for 1 and 2.

answered Is this sentence in a different language or is it just gibberish?

comment Is my hiragana writing understandable?
You should try writing in boxes for now. It'll help you pay attention to the proportions, which will help you make nicer looking characters. You can buy or print special paper for practicing writing, or you can buy a notebook of graph paper. (You can write in 2x2 boxes at a time so you can see where the center of each box is as you write.) Also see the video Choko linked below.

comment Usage of the pronouns 「我が輩」 and 「方」 in everyday life
Someone should point out that the suffix is がた rather than かた.

This might be a weird question, but did you mark this as Community Wiki accidentally? If so, I can undo it for you.
