Interesting week, indeed. I think this is the first quarter where I’ve missed one day out of fifteen. I guess that has mostly to do with the fact that I’m driving for not one, but two students, and my absences would count for two. That whole responsibility thing keeps a person sane, plus the added bonus of speeding in the carpool lane rules all and is most helpful when the line between an extra thirty minutes of sleep or hanging out in morning commute is thinner than you think. Sometimes an extra thirty seconds of sleep fucks you over later.

I’m having a lot of fun in class, to be honest. Japanese has been very challenging, but in a good way. I’ve been learning more in the past three class than I have in the past three weeks of Math 105. Economics even scored major points with me this week with the commodities market experiment we did on Wednesday night. We all opened a zero-value market for two weeks (each day lasted two minutes) and traded textbooks in different roles. One “week” half of us were buyers, while the rest sold, and then we all switched places when the second “week” started. Being an amatuer market player, I fucked myself on day one, not realizing a convergence had yet to occur. I bought a $54 value book for $53, instead of the other guy who bought for $12 and made like $38 dollars of profit/gain. Bleh. I bounced back the next day, though. šŸ™‚ It was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the midterm. Econ has actually reopened my eyes to some information I haven’t touched on since high school.

We saw Kill Bill volume 1 after school today. It rocked hard core. Go see it if you’re still hemming about it. Production I. G. did a ten minute anime sequence in the movie and it ruled. šŸ™‚ I was really enjoying it and am looking forward to volume 2 in February.
