|Look at all the imaginary studying I'm doing, wheeeeee....^_^;;;

Now, don't get me wrong. I love my Japanese class, and my sensei, Washio Iishii, is the bomb. The coolest samurai-ish one-eyed pink-tie eighty-year old man on the planet, that's Ishii-sensei. He's so cool, I even named my pet koi after him. *cuddles calico koi Washio-chan* |
But the man moves uber-fast. Our first exam is on Wednesday, covering almost the entire hiragana alphabet and many, many, many vocabulary words and phrases, and I'm like....gah!!! Tasukete!! (For those of you who aren't linguists, that's HELP!!!)
Not to mention the fact that since Japanese sucks up so much of my study-time, my other classes which are not-so-cool-but-more-applicable-to-my-major (Freshman Comp II, World Literature, Music Appreciation, and Art History II, to name a few) are getting way behind as far as study-time and readings go. I still have to read Genesis (I guess being a Christian would have come in handy for that assignment, ne?) and acts I and II of Shakespeare's Othello for an essay. Othello shouldn't be too bad, since I've had to read it before, and Genesis is pretty short, I think, but it's the reading *journals* that suck major ass. I *hate* reading journals...
But enough whining. I *do* have a date on Wednesday morning with a respectable cowboy-ish young man named Jeremy, and he's taking me out to breakfast and to go see Hero (which I've already seen, but since it's full of beautiful Chinese boys, I'll see it again...)
He's got twelve acres and six horses (definitely a plus), he's very chivalrous and sweet (another plus) and he suggested Hero, which in turn suggests good taste in movies (yet another plus). Average guy, a little on the shy side, but not too shy to ask out my intimidating self when he'd never seen me before in my life, so...yeah. Why not give it a shot, eh? Although I might want to keep my nights at the drag clubs on the down-low, though, at least for awhile. Just so I don't scare him off. ^_^ Poor little naive country boy...
I'm also off of work until Friday, and I don't have to help out with any of the super-clearance aftermath. (Walmart looked like a hurricane hit it, no Florida puns intended.) Viva la liberty!!!
Maybe I can get some writing done, but I doubt it. *sigh* Let me catch up on my real life, and then we'll see.
