Good ol' Grant (hi!) has inspired me to finally update. Wow! I once had a cameo on his blog!
So, kids, what have I been up to since my last update which was--what--a month ago? I haven't had much time, and I still don't have much time, so I'll make it short and simple for both you and I.
Finals were completed. I had trouble with Kanji. I am applying for study abroad programs to go to Waseda or Kyoto in the fall. I have been doing more reading--especially Japanese literature that's been recommended to me by Japanese friends.
I got a traffic ticket that I will bring to court and win.
I have been drinking quite a bit.
I watched Two Towers and Catch Me If You Can. On New Years, I hopped a couple of parties and ended up at my friend's place, inebriated and watching the Conan DVD with commentary from the director and Arnold; then we proceeded to view Big Trouble in Little China. Ah, there's nothing like David Lo Pan looking for a Chinese girl with green eyes. Last night, I finally got my hands on Bridget Jones's Diary.
I am the master barrista at my Barnes & Noble. In fact, I'm getting a pay raise soon. To think, I couldn't even make a single drink until last month.
In a few weeks, the plan is set to go to Lake Tahoe for a ski trip.
And afterwards, it's time for more rockin' Japanese learnin' action! Hiya!
And now, I am being unlike other blogs and saying what I am currently listening to, which is The Flaming Lips' Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part 1. You go Yoshimi.
