Okay I haven’t blogged in a hell of a long time, but this just got my attention right away.
New world record for individual 3x3x3 solve by Felix Zemdegs. 5.66 seconds
Oh hey. How nice to see you again.
Is what I imagine you’re saying to me. Minus the anger and disappointment of my absence. I do admit, I have neglected updating for much too long. About 3 weeks at my count. But I have been taking notes every day. Now I am wondering whether I should write individual daily entries, or just write a post summarizing each week.
In any case, Friday May 28th was interesting, so I’ll write a post for this day, at the very least.
Another day, another midterm. Newspaper Japanese is particularly hard, because it’s all about kanji. You know how hard it is to learn a set of Chinese characters, then relearn them all over again with different readings? It’s fairly hard. I feel like I just said something stupid.
But with that out of the way, the end is within sight. Just another week and midterms are over! We can always worry about tests, speeches, and presentations afterwards. I was also looking forward to the poker game we were going to have that night.
Stayed up too late the night before, randomly surfing the net. Woke up super tired, so I made myself a whole flask of coffee to last me for the whole day. I thought I’d definitely need it for my reading comprehension test in any case, since it was my first class and I wanted to concentrate.
After a rushed breakfast of peanut butter toast, I got to school extra early to study a bit more before heading up to class. I was actually pretty confident entering the exam. I went over all the readings we’ve done so far and made sure I understood the content well enough. However, when I laid my eyes on the actual exam, I realized I had been going about it wrong. A good chunk of the exam was based on kanji recognition and, like Illidan said, I was not prepared.
It’s Tuesday. Gotta love Tuesdays. Especially if it’s the first Tuesday I spent not going to school even though I have no classes lol.
Wake up extra early, because sleeping in on a day off seems like such a waste. Don’t you ever get that feeling? So excited to wake up when you can sleep in, and dreading to wake up early when you have to. Our minds are naturally rebels.
Remember how I had my business Japanese test last Friday? Probably not, but I did. And that means I don’t have to go to my business class in 1gen today.
I still manage to make myself rush off first second block though…which was definitely not a good idea. First off, I was drifting everywhere in the rain on my fixed gear bike. Secondly, because I got knocked off my bike by a car.
It’s vacation time baby!
Waking up early to bury my face in breakfast and prep a lunch, because today, we’re leaving for a weekend vacation at the Kinosaki hot-springs! I’m going to throw Saturday and Sunday together since everything over the weekend seemed to be a blur anyway.
Finally, Friday. Fridays are exciting :D
Even before entering into Friday, I had an enlightening dream. In it, I dreamt that I had already finished my exchange term and returned home. Facing the monotonous mundane life that was apparently my usual life back in Vancouver, I despaired at not having done enough in Japan. I yearned greatly to do things so vividly, and raged at the fact that I felt I had wasted my exchange opportunity. I thought furiously of how I had gotten home in the first place. At this point, I realized I don’t know how I got home. And using what I learned from Inception, I realized that it was all just a dream. Complete with audio alarm playing in the background for my kicker. I awoke happy, and grateful to be staring up at my stucco ceilinged dorm room.
Where were we? Oh right. Exciting Fridays. And what better way to start Friday mornings than to have a full-on dorm-wide fire drill!
OMFG, that thing that starts with an F and ends in UCK. Hahaha old joke. Bite me.
Thursday. The day that comes before Friday.
Thursdays are boring. Seriously. My notes read:
Better at reading kanji
I guess I’ll talk about this a little. But it’s going to be boring. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. And there’s probably going to be some foul language.
The following quote comes from my notes.
There are 3 justices in this world:
And those watching.
I don’t particularly remember what this little quote was regarding, or where I heard it from, but I guess it’s got something to do with that case about Bin Laden. There are many perspectives regarding that bit of (remarkably astonishing) news.
