It's already halfway through this semester. Next week is spring break. Between now and March 29 I am focusing on my two end of semester projects, trying to get them in gear to the greatest extent possible because I want to do an amazing job on them. I have a bibliography to compile for Manyo poetry- Hyangga connections, and I have a paper to write on archaeology (!) which I am very nervous about having just begun my archaeological endeavours this semester. Smiti would be proud. Although I have yet to tell her as she is, as we all know, in very high demand and I believe in India right now being an archaeologist. i am jealous.
I got to run a review session for undergrads about Man'yoshu last week and it was amazing and reminded me how much I love pretending to be a teacher... so being a real one eventually will have to be a million times more awesome I imagine.
Ok well back to translating some Man'yo poetry and researching kofun.

New semester.

Trying to have an improved attitude, and I think I'm succeeding so far. I'm working hard and trying to not care about not knowing things and let people judge me however they want.

I'm writing in my blog fairly consistently too ... the one where I'm translating the Man'yoshu. It's pretty awesome. I hope to keep doing it as frequently as possible because in 10 years I'll have a full translation hahaha.

I decided I no longer care if I don't have many friends here I prefer to be by myself reading anyway. Adieu~

Okay I think I only post in here now when I have weird dreams and that is somewhat true.
So last night I had a lot of weird dreams the only one of which I remember now is that I was looking through a store ad that I had somehow modeled for and it was weird I was in all black, well the shirt had a red flower or something, and heals, and I had my hair crimped (it was blonde still) and I was holding hands with small children. Tell me that isn't weird.

Last night I dreamt about making up with my roommates from freshman year of college. It was weird.

Wow I haven't written in here in a while.

I'm leaving for California in 4 days though and I am finding every way possible to procrastinate packing. We all know I'm only good at doing things last minute, and this includes packing. I actually have done quite a bit compared to usual, but then again usually I am flying so I can stay up late the night before... not this time... Stephie and I will be departing via my vehicle on Monday at 5AM sharp. Hope to reach Toledo, OH around 6PM and stay there for the night... then the next morning repeat and stay around Omaha, NE the following evening. The next day will be spent en route to Salt Lake City, where we will stay for the third night before charging on to San Francisco the next morning.

I am really really excited for grad school right now like you have no idea. I have been going through all my old papers & books from undergrad while packing (some of them will be quite useful in my future research I think, so they're accompanying me west) and the prospect of studying hardcore again is becoming more and more exciting. And I'll be meeting so many new people that share interests with me.... hopefully... so I won't be lonely.

Not that I won't miss here and everyone here, but it's time for me to move on with my life... it has been for a while... but I've been enjoying myself (maybe a little too much).

The one thing I'm not looking forward to is all the paperwork I have to do within the first few days of getting to California in order to prove I'm a resident there by next fall for tuition purposes. I'm only allowed to leave California for 21 days total for the next year... one week Thanksgiving, one week Christmas, and one week 4th of July maybe? It's not fun but hopefully the following year I can devote all the money I'll have saved from not flying home the year before on either coming home whenever I want or taking a lovely trip somewhere.

Hmm... well that was about 10 minutes or I so I spent typing this (really I have no concept of how long it took... I just thought 10 sounded like a good number)... so I've wasted significant packing time... I guess I'll make another attempt... my room still looks like a bloody disaster area but hopefully I shall correct that shortly... hasta luego...

Hmm life right now just keeps getting more and more depressing.

I need to completely disconnect myself from the world in order to feel better I think...
why oh why can't it be August and time to move to California yet??

This is a good quote.

FWIW, no red blooded, self-respected, male will ever use “working too many hours” as an excuse as to why they cannot spend quality time with his girlfriend. Enjoying each other’s company in many ways (physical, emotional, etc.) is one of the things that makes being apart and working so many hours tolerable.

Even though the grammar etc. sucks, its message is good.

I am currently wearing the cutest pajamas ever. And yes they are hello kitty.

Julio Lugo is back officially today and watching him get his first hit of the season his first time up to bat made me feel spectacular.

This weather is perfect for sleeping with the windows open in really cute pajamas. Too bad it's not gonna last. Oh well time to go crochet a baby blanket and probably watch some NCIS.
