Things I have done recently! In no particular order

~Presented my thesis to professors and small group of friends :D it went really well despite my nearly losing my flashdrive with the presentation on it in my sleepy-braindead-ness the evening before. Now I just have to find the time to add like three sentences to the actual paper, make it a pdf, and TURN IT IN. I will probably upload the beast on mediafire or something if anyone wants to download and read it. It is 50 pages of academic argument for how they should leave more Japanese cultural info in translated manga using Prince of Tennis as a case study :D Yay for my college letting me turn my inner fangirl into my thesis topic.

~Watched the first episode of Lucky Seven! It was excellent :D and I have relatively high hopes for the rest of the drama but we shall see. Nitta and Shuntaro have the beginnings of a beautiful relationship and what we see of the ladies is awesome, though we admittedly do not see enough of them.

~Started watching Chinen and Yamapi's new drama which I can't remember the name of and am too lazy to look up with [personal profile] grayscale. We generally spend it yelling at the screen when things don't make sense (often) and complaining that Chinen doesn't get enough screen time/freaking out when he does get screen time which is great fun. He doesn't appear very often, unfortunately, even though his character is doing things that make it seem like he should be getting screen time. Nothing makes sense. Who is the old guy seriously

~Had a very impassioned discussion at about 10 minutes before midnight about characterization and other plot-related choices in Harry Potter with several friends and by impassioned I mean nearly shouting and talking over each other but in a very friendly discussion-like way

~Met with my dean and ascertained that yes, I really can take only 3 classes and count as a full time student (for some reason I thought I needed 3.5 credits per semester, turns out I was wrong) so there's that solved and hopefully once internship starts up I will still be able to stay on top of HW. We'll see.

~Preordered Wild at Heart and am inescapably sad that I'm not going to get it till, like, MARCH because the bits that are in the Lucky Seven opening sound really catchy.

Everything else is class or homework related, which is not very interesting to read about (I'm infecting carrots in Microbio? Our control plates grew stuff because we weren't using sterilized technique? I have a kanji quiz I'm not prepared for on Wednesday? See, not interesting) and no news about JET yet augh augh augh so I suppose that's it.

:D How is everyone?
