I went down to South Florida the weekend before Thanksgiving to attend ACC Expo. Suffice it to say that I met some really cool people down there (You know who you are!
I finally got the school semester over with, took my exams and all. I'm proud to say that I passed all my classes! ^_^ Well, 3 semesters down, 5 to go! (I think...)
As for my Japanese studies, I finally learned all of Hiragana and I'm starting to learn Katakana (although that's been on hold due to Christmas and New Year's). I bought an excellent book called Kanji & Kana - A Handbook of the Japanese Writing System - ISBN # 0-8048-2077-5. I highly recommend it. It's a dictionary of the entire Hiragana, Katakana, and the 1,945 Jouyou Kanji characters and the 284 Jinnei-yo Kanji (used in given names). If you want to learn Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji for only $19.95, get this book. I'm serious. ^_^
I threw a party at my house for New Year's, and it rocked. I had Javier and Scott come in from Miami and my friend Will with his two friends Keith and Mike. We had lots of DDR, watched anime, and had a lot of fun. We also watched Dumb & Dumber on TBS Superstation. We got pissed when they cut out our favorite parts though. >:(
I took Javier and Scott to the video game store where I used to work, and I gotta say, I'm so pissed right now. They kept threatening me with layoffs, telling me that they can't afford to keep me, and that I'd get laid off by the end of the month (December 2002). I go there today and see them with TWO new people! What the hell is this? It just makes me so mad. I'm thorough with that place. I'll take my business elsewhere. If they won't respect me and tell me the truth, I don't want anything to do with them. Assholes.
I don't want to end this journal on a negative note, so I'll think of something to add before I click Submit...
Five minutes later . .
Nope, can't think of a thing. ^_^;;;
