Since I'm sitting here in the Edmonton airport doing nothing because I'm on hour three of a five and a half hour layover (omg I'm dumb why did I decide to leave so early) I figured I might as well make a journal entry updating you all on my life. You know, the all of like... five of you that still read LJ these days. But I digress.
I had an okay semester. Other than a some small existential crises I had mid-way where I questioned what I was even doing in school, it went, for the most part, rather well. I'm still terrible at any classes that require some semblance of memorization, other than languages, as my geography mark after my final was a C-; not as well as I would have liked to have done. On the flip side though I got Bs in both my writing and art history classes, which is nice. Next semester I'm taking nothing but English lit and writing classes so in theory it should be a rather smooth ride.
I spent the past two weeks not doing a whole lot, since I had just the one exam on Tuesday. Most of my time was occupied with sleeping, with the occasional venture into the outside world to acquire food and do my Christmas shopping (which still isn't done aiieee). In retrospect I could have done a lot more productive things... like starting my Sakura-Con costumes, or art, but what's done is done I suppose. Or rather in this case, not done lol.
I did manage some socializing though! Last Sunday hakukumo
came over and we watched Dream High all day. It's... interesting? We got through five episodes and I can definitely say that Suzy's character is possibly the least likeable female protagonist I have encountered in a show ever. I definitely prefer Eunjung's character, though I hate how the plot is forcing her into this "bitch" role for the sole purpose of creating a rival, even though it goes against her personality. :| Anyways, I still have another... 11? (oh god) episodes left to get through and I brought them with me to watch over the break so uh... yeah. We'll see how this goes.
Last Saturday I went over to Jessie's apartment to play Dance Central, which I've decided is really fun and I would love to own it if not for the fact my place has zero room to accommodate it. Also it turns out I'm not as terrible at it as I originally thought, though my only prior experience playing was at PAX this year and that went... interestingly... (I did it for the free scarf that's all sob)
Friday night I went out with Emerald and her Korean friends (I have to wonder just how many she has, I don't think I've hung out with the same group of people more than once) to one of the places downtown to drink and eat all the food. We drank a surprising amount? Two bottles of soju split between three of us (the other two stuck to beer) but I went home later that night not feeling very drunk at all. Uh. The next morning was a different story though. Whoops.
I... think that's all there's really to talk about? Yeah. Not looking forward to the -30C I'm about to be subject to in about... five hours, but it'll be nice to be home for a bit I think. I don't mind it so much over winter break since I'm only there for a few weeks as opposed to four months. Besides, my mom said she's going to make me steak tonight for dinner. *A* I'm excited, I haven't had steak in months sob.
