02/19/2007: "Midterms = Pain" mood: ultra tired

First let me apologize. I really meant to update earlier, believe me I really did. I even have two moderatly interesting posts in the cue waiting to be put up. I've just been incredibly busy with midterms. Since I'm pretty much halfway through my first 4 month semester, all of my professors are throwings gobs of midterm work at me. angry, grr

A total of two three page essays for Japanese Culture, 2 4 page essays and 1 2-3 page journal essay for Japanese Literature, 1 extensive test on Language and Race, 1 extensive Japanese grammar test, and 1 Japanese conversation interview test crammed into a little over a week is getting me a bit fried. On top of that each of these collective assignments for each class represent on average about 30% of my final grade.

As you can see, even now at 3am after finishing a Japanese Literature essay, the amount of work is levying a heavy toll on me. Whether I'll stop crying tears of crimson blood, only time will tell. But, I wanted to give reason for the long delay without an update so here I am.

Worry not though, before you know it I'll have more excitingly JDM content for you to enjoy. wink
