I just got home, and it feels amazing, knowing that I'm totally free for the next 3 months.

...

Actually...I just wanted an excuse to use this shiny new emote...

lol. My school has this program they do every other year called Japan Term, where you take some classes fall term and then spend 2 weeks in Japan over our six week winter break. The only reason I'm questioning my ability to survive is this: my entire suite (there's just 4 of us) is going. There's only 4 Japan term-related courses, and we only take 3 courses a term. The only person in our suite who doesn't have the exact same schedule as the rest of us is my roommate, who opted to take the linguistics course instead of Modern Japan.

lol. This is only, like, the 2nd thread I made since the forums came back up...>.>;;;

>.< I want to try and get a job, but if I can't, there are some projects that I can work on...like getting rank 1 windmill in Mabinogi, and maybe taking on the task of getting caught up on on One Piece....

Doing better than me. I got back from ACen to find a letter from my college reminding me that the semester started May 25. Good thing I didn't decide to take an extra week on my vacation. Basically, the spring semester ended, I went to ACen, came back, and summer semester started.

But anyhow, congrats, Kaay! The first year IMHO is actually the hardest, because you're making the adjustment from high school to college. The next year you're a veteran and it won't seem as tough.

hahah, here comes sentinel the scholar!

Kidding.

I never went to college, so I can't say for sure, but I remember graduating from High School and that was pretty cool to finally be out. Hope your summer vacation goes very well :)

No, but it's one thing to go through freshman college and then find yourself teaching it. For me, teaching freshmen is fairly easy ("You're not in high school anymore; now you actually have to think, and you can't do that while you're running your mouth, so shut up!"), but my students tell me that they find the optional classes (like my anime course) to be more fun and interesting than the survey courses they have to take in their first year or two.

Me, my freshman year was easy. Between scholarships and financial aid, I didn't have to work, I went to class for four hours, then went home and gamed three nights a week. I goofed off a lot. Of course, I also had a C average, which burned me later when I started taking college seriously.

lol. I love my school, but it's in a small town in the middle of Nowhere, Illinois, and I missed the city. Also, I missed my parents ant cat. And my friends back home.

I dunno, but it will seem nice to get out of a bustling city occasionally. I guess I like quiet places. St. Louis isn't even loud, but I'm like QUIET! lol XD

And yeah that is the thing with moving, you always leave something behind. But those are the sacrifices that have to be made in pursuit of your dreams. I know when I eventually move over to chicago/chicagoland (I'm NOT moving anywhere here. lol) I'll miss everyone here. But it's something I have to give up. :( But at least you are back at home. :D And back to Mabinogi. XD

I like the city. If it wasn't for the fact that the town my school is in is a college town, it would probably drive me crazy. >.<

and yes, I'm back to Mabinogi. XD and some really good friends of mine who'd been gone for a really long time came back, so I'm super happy <3 :thumbup:

Well that is what colleges are good for. Making the middle of nowhere places less desolate, but full of college kids. Probably doesn't get any livelier then that. XD I guess somewhere to quiet can get boring. I take it tho you defitnely love people. lol :D

And awesome, you guys are having like a mabinogi come back party. Everyone should rebirth themselves in celebration. lol Seems like stuff is so much more awesome when you came back.

yeah, i definitely think you should at least watch or read the arlong park arc in one piece.
as soon as you finish that, you're going to find it hard to stomach most 'stories' in pretty much
ever other shonen series; it's so well-written, paced, amazing, poignant, etc.
