The last week of classes for this semester will be starting tomorrow.
Then, there'll be a break until the beginning of April during which there'll be exams (two for me, one oral and one written) and writing of papers (in my case, just one for now).
Most of my English classes finished a week early so I'll be mainly going to uni for the Japanology ones (culture on Monday, history on Tuesday and society on Wednesday.
Can't tell you how much I enjoyed these and even though passing the exam (28 of February) will require a superhuman amount of work, I'm pretty sure my passion for all things Japan will propel me towards mastering all the facts and getting an okay grade in the end.
After that I'll be allowed to take advanced cultural and social study modules and I'm looking forward to that so much it hurts.

However, I'll still be making my long way to uni and back nearly every day during the first week of the break.
For one, I have my Semantics oral on Thursday the 10th.
Also, I'll be attending a workshop about academic writing and research on Thursday and Wednesday. I think that will come in really in handy since I'm about to start writing my first ever paper.
Also, we get a whole credit point for about eight hours of work which is pretty generous if you ask me ;)

Speaking of paper, I talked to Mrs. K. (our geeky and awesome lecturer) about it and I'll be writing about manga after all.
I mean, it makes sense since my minor is Japanology after all and with and me being just about the most passionate female otaku in that class.
Of course it's going to largely depend on the amount (and quality) of the available secondary literature but I hope I'll be able to center my writing around the depiction of emotions in manga and maybe a comparison to how Western comics archive similar things.
Let's see how all this goes, huh? =)

PS: I need Japan/otaku related icons. Several ones, in fact. Well, one thing more on my to-do list XD

- My dad forgot my birthday. Meh -_-

- Got another package from Japan with stuff for me and [profile] yamasagi plus my traditional small present to give to Kai in two weeks.

- That's right, it's only a fortnight until I finally get to see him again. Damn, I can't wait :3 I'm SO looking forward to getting into the studio with him, and this time, it'll be different in several ways. Gonna elaborate on that in a forthcoming entry =)

- Today, I used half of my mini Hair Doctor tryout pot I got from Lush. The stuff is very much like henna in terms of yucky-ness, but it smells of peppermint which is nice. Dunno what it does until my hair is completely dired, but it already feels kinda nice and softer than before.

- I also got my antidepressant and thyroid pill prescriptions and when I got to the pharmacy, they actually had both of them in stock for once. Should I be worried? *lol* Dentist appointment tomorrow, but I'm only supposed to get the new fillings polished. So, let's hope he doesn't find anything else worth doing O_O;;;

- Started watching "Japanorama". The show is nicely done, Jonathan Ross is adorkable and I like that, despite his accent, he can at least say some things like "What's this?" in Japanese ^^ Am currently downloading a torrent that has the extra segments as well. DO WANT.

- Finally, I love you all. SRSLY. I have some of the best-est friends one could imagine *hugs everyone* <3
