Another term over??

As you might have noticed I dropped off the face of the internet for awhile. Awhile meaning a couple of months or so. But now fall term is suddenly over, and I feel like I at least owe you all a summary.

I spent a lot of the term having issues with my Japanese comps project. I wasn't very interested in it and had trouble getting started. When I re-examined the situation trying to figure out what happened I realized a couple of important things. 1)I hate research, 2)I had mistaken my desire to study abroad in Japan for an interest in majoring in Japanese and 3)If I did spend the rest of the year on a Japanese project I was likely to go crazy and have a miserable year. So I dropped the Japanese major and am now just a Studio Art major (and much much happier for it). I still qualify for the Advanced Certificate in the Japanese Language, which I will make sure I arrange for next term.

Aside from that I had two art classes, painting and ceramics, which went pretty well. That was really fun. I made some pretty neat stuff.

I also worked as an office assistant for the Asian Languages and Literatures department, which involved a lot of sitting around or redecorating bulletin boards. I'm doing it again next term. It's not terribly exciting but that's okay. I'm not working a lot of hours this year anyway.

Durin's doing fine. He went home with one of my housemates for break so that he doesn't have to get on an airplane again. He's gotten a lot older-looking over the course of the term. I did end up getting him neutered.

I'm going home tomorrow for winter break, which will be nice. I'm in desperate need of a break anyway. I'm looking forward to thawing a little while I have a chance; it's been in the 30s here for a couple of days.

Maybe I'll get back into the habit of writing. We'll see.

Wee! Susan!!

Does this mean I might see you on AIM sometimes? That'd be super.

And, in response to your 'I dropped my Japanese major' story: I might be dropping my East Asian Studies major down to a minor. For pretty much the same reasons. Super late to be making this decision (I always realize important things later than I should...) so we'll have to wait and see if it works. Just thought it was amusing that we're apparently doing the same thing.

Ya know, except I'm Classics...and you're Studio Art. Same idea though ^.^

Hearts for you!!

Yay for finally figuring out what we want to major in!! Lol. Now if only I knew what I wanted to do with my life... >.> Anyway, good luck with your major dropping.

And I am going to try to be a good person and get on AIM occasionally. ^^
