Life Excitement  
Since my friends list has become relatively sizable (welcome to rashiea and royalbk by the by :D) I'm gonna try to do some semi-frequent updates. ^^;; Of course, "semi" is a relative term. XD

Anyway, I'm in the midst of midterms craziness right now. Just finished my computer science midterm a few hours ago (every time I do work from that class for a long time, I end up with a pounding headache. Logical thinking takes its toll on a girl ;;) and I think it went well~. Got my calculus midterm back today. I got a C on it which is bad for a math major. Dx;; Need to work harder for the next one, and study hard for my linear algebra midterm next week.

Started tcg_exchange modding today as well. :D Made my first few prize posts and answered some claims of my own~. I was so afraid of messing up but I think I did everything okay. XD;;

And today marks one month until my birthday!! a;sdkf;adkf. I'm excited not just because it's my 21st birthday. And hopefully my mom will be getting me a Nintendo DS because 1) I seem to be the only person in the world without one 2) I really really want the kanji dictionary game. Draw in a kanji and it brings up the hiragana and definition for you?? It would save me SO MUCH homework time XDDD;;

Speaking of, I need to go do laundry and read my yomimono for Japanese class tomorrow. (It's a manga instead of a book this time, thank god!!! book was too difficult ;;). Busy Carrie is busy. DX

Oh csc...wait until your final :p I remember being so confident going into mine then two and a half hours later, I just wanted it to end...it wouldn't end D: So for japanese class, you have to read raw manga now? How far advanced have you gotten?

Taking that midterm gave me a splitting headache because of all the logical reasoning that was required. ><;;; So much thinking and going through code.... I needed that wine I drank last night. xD;;

We are reading a raw manga, but I think it was specifically made for the class / Japanese learners (unlike the book we read. So difficult!) so it's not too bad~ Plus my sensei gives us a kanji list. Although jisho.org's definitions have been so off for me lately it's making me upset. Dx Which is why I want a DS so I can buy the kanji dictionary game. Even if it's $50 after import fees it's so worth it. XD I'm in 5th semester right now. Which is pretty intense at my university. x3;; Although japanese is so hard that's not saying much. XD

Wine's nice after a terrible day or a midterm day :D Yes, way too much logic involved that makes me respect those who go through with it.

Okay, interesting story? I remember in our texts, we'd follow Mary-san, who was an American, through her adventure in Japan and it turns out that someone likes her and we meet her friends, etc. It made the textbook really fun =)

Do you mean fifth semester in Japanese? Well I don't know about that last part, at least you managed to get there ;p Some people would've totally given up and spent more time on their major haha

Yesss a friend showed up from out of town with a bottle of wine. :D It was great. ^^

Oh my god, did you guys use Genki (the textbook) too??? A:LKASDKL I remember that from 1st and 2nd semester Japanese x3;; Yeah those were pretty fun conversations~~ By chance did you guys ever use the "Intermediate Japanese" textbook?? ^^

Yes, except Japanese is my major ;p But yeah, it's hard. I'd like to focus on math more, but Japanese takes up a lot of my time. ><;;

Waaa, japaense is your major? Than doing a double major in Math and Japanese?

And yes, I do believe we did :D We only used about half of that text since the course I took only required that much of it. I will never forget Mary-san & Takeshi-san =D

Good luck with midterms and I hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend!
