Wow... It's been a while

I kind of regret not having used this more.  >.<  I don't have any friends on livejournal, as I tend to be more of a lurker than anything, but it would still have been nice to write down my thoughts.  Oh well, can't change the past.  

My life is going... fairly well right now.  My biggest problems are relationship related.  Lately me and my boyfriend fight all the freakin' time.  This is a "new" boyfriend by the way.  Shortly after transferring colleges I ended up breaking up with my boyfriend of three and a half years and getting into a relationship with someone else.  We've been together now for.... um.. *counts in her head* 10 months!  (Which kind of sucks, because it's so close to valentine's day I'll never get separate celebrations XP ).  They're mostly stupid fights, but it still sucks.  I remember when we first started going out how 'in love' we were.  He actually cried out of happiness.  *sigh*  That's just the way things go I suppose. 

I've decided that I hate the grading system at my new college.  At YSU we just had A, B, C, etc.  but now there are pluses and minuses.  Eff that noise.  Seriously.  I got 1 A, 3 A-, and 1 B+, and my fresh 4.0 GPA went to 3.66.  It's just so damn frustrating.  Last semester though, I took 19 credits and got 5 A's, 1 B, and 1 B+, which pulled my GPA up to 3.7.  So hopefully if I work my ass off I'll be able to get a high enough GPA by graduation that I can get the highest latin honors.  This semester I'll probably be applying for Alpha Mu Gamma (Foreign Lanuage Honor Society).  19 Credit hours again.  *dies*  By the time I graudate I'm gonna be sick of Asia lol.  It's all Asia all the time.  Japanese classes and Asian history classes, taught by Asian teachers.  It's fun though.  Well, except for Dr. Yin's tests.  

After all of this time I gave up on teaching.  I changed my minor to Asian Studies after lots of thought.  I don't think I have what it takes to be a teacher, and I don't even know if that would have made me truly happy.  However, I've always been intersted in East Asia, so if nothing else, at least I am happy now.  My dream now is to work as a translator.  I'm mildly intersted in Interpretation, but I'm not sure if I could withstand that kind of pressure.  I guess it all depends on how skillful I become in my chosen language.  Ah, I feel like such a nerd!  My family doesn't have much money, so I only asked for "1" present this year.  I got language learning textbooks for christmas.  Lol.  From my brother I got Korean, and from my parents, Chinese.  I'm so excited to start learning that I don't know where to start.  And on the other hand I still need to focus on my Japanese studies.  Last semester I took Japanese 102 and 201 at the same time to speed up the process (because I'm already a senior and will have to stay an extra year).  This semester I'll be taking 202, but I'll be learning 300 on my own and spending an extra half hour with the teaching assistant for extra practice.  And then, in the fall, I'll be going to Japan!!  Gah! I'm so scared and excited at the same time.

Must eat dinner before my mom kills me.

dude, how do you take two levels of the same language at the same time? wouldn't it be harder in one class while just the right level in the other? will you explain that to me? maybe i'll do that since I want to be fluent in Japanese really fast too.

Have fun in Japan! Ahh, wrong timing! :( I wish I'm a bit older so I can go on study abroad next fall too and maybe we could go to HSJ concert together!!! :(

ok, i've said that to another LJ user, but I forgot who...is that a bad thing? lol

Basically, I spent my summer studying all the material for 102. That way when school started 102 was like a review for me and I already knew what I needed to for 201.

That would have been fun. =) lol
