To help with the computerlessness, I got myself a cd player (I didn't need one before because I always listened to music on my computer) and two cds (two more things I managed to recuperate yay!). And I can also listen to the radio (which I never do unless I'm at work because most of the music they play there is extremely crappy). So now my room won't feel so quiet when I spend hours there at a time and my cds will be of some use. :)

So far I'm coping pretty well with not having a computer at home. Being busy with work helps, but still I'm doing way better than when I had to get it fixed for a virus a few months ago. And it seems having no computer makes me more relaxed too for some reason (and makes me do more things in a day as well). With all this I'm a bit late in my letter writing though. This afternoon I'll probably write one or two, but I won't be able to finish all my weekly mail like I usually do. Looks like I'll be busy next week too then. :)

I finally decided to go through with Japanese next semester. Now why do I like so much to make myself suffer, I don't know, but I didn't really feel like taking up a new language either. I could have went on with Spanish or German, but I don't have the connection and the interest with these languages that I have for Japanese. As for new languages, nothing the uni gave attracted me. So I guess I'm up for at least another four months of suffering... 15 weeks of wrecking my brain a night a week plus homework... studying for exams, cramming Kanjis... NOOOOOOO!!!! But in the end, I know I would have regretted stopping at some point in time, so here I am pointing the torture instruments at myself.

Also, after following [livejournal.com profile] weirdnessdk 's example, I made a listography account. Mine is mainly dealing with books (surprised), so if anyone wants to add me, feel free to do so. :) www.listography.com/mariechanslists

Today, I had a little free time so I wondered around campus and took some pictures. Our campus is a really green place, and habitated with lots of cute little furry things (though the second I come out with my camera, they all disappear... isn't this typical...), so it makes some pretty pictures.

Kochi kochi! )

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

"It seemed to be working. The pewter business was prospering. I knew that Constantius would rather have been with the men of the Sixth Victrix in the great fortress across the river, though in truth, since the wild tribes beyond the Wall had for some time been peaceful, there was not much activity there. The busy town, which since the beginning of the century had been the capital of Britannia Inferior, was where the real power lay now, and Constantius seemed to be one of those men who could do well at anything to which he puts his mind. I glimpsed Philip, a Greek boy whom we had recently added to the household, hovering in the passage, and beckonned him to clear away the platters."

- from Marion Zimmer Bradley's Priestess of Avalon

Today I met with the teacher I was supposed to met a month ago for my Reading class. Turns out I can't take it because these reading classes are reserved for those who do their Masters with more courses. Because I still needed to be a full time student though, sensei had me register for one of these individual projects thingies, which basically will be 3 more research credits I'll use for reading books for my thesis and coming up with a proposal. That's for my full time student status. Now I still have to take another 3 credits, because I told the student loan people I would be taking 15 credits in fall (and since I got a really nice loan/scholarship for next fall, I want to affect that the least possible). So what I'm thinking is taking another language course. Now I know I could continue with Japanese, but with a Masters work load, I tend to think that taking an advanced Japanese class (knowing I had trouble last semester) would be suicidal. But me being a tiny bit masochist and all, I'm still thinking about it. But I'm also thinking about starting fresh with another language since I'll be starting a new program, a new cycle of studies and new projects. So what languages are you guys interested in or would you find interesting to learn? I'm in need of inspiration. :)

Also, zomfg, I'm officially graduating in a week! Yay! For the last month I've been pretty much so so about it, but now that it's coming, I'm starting to really look forward to it! :) And -I'm soooo happy about this- I'm getting a camera for my graduation present! My mom called not so long ago and told me! :D Soon I'll finally be able to post pictures like everyone else! Squee!

Oh and I have newly revived my blogger account. It's now a music blog, so if you guys want to check it out or follow me here's the link: metaldaisuki.blogspot.com/
