(Real day of post: 3日6月2013年, a las 11:20ぽい)
Already finished japanese stuff for class. Now its a matter of preparing for the 期末試験(final), and 会話試験(conversation final). I would rather do 10,000 mini quizzes and tests than one big ass final.
Wearing boots since itll be in 60-70's in chicago. Its nice and 'warm' in naperville but the weather is all screwy. It keeps jumping from 60/70 to 80's and then an on and off rain. Plus the weather difference from naperville and chicago. One day i ended up showing up to class all soaked from the rain. Didn't really mind though.
Some random guy in the corner is trying to sleep, and the girl in front of me looks extremely relaxed. XD
And realized i also have to show up next week for the poli sci class. I thought the last day was this wednesday not the next one. . . I hope this is the last week for the russia class. but i wont know until i'm there tomorrow. and still have to revise that paper for tomorrow. im all set on my thesis paper (just adding a few things for history reference), but the russian one still needs revision.
Actually today is just japanese class because my teacher said he'd be out of the country for family stuff (his mum is from peru), so no screenwriting class today. I really thought about not showing up for a little bit there since its only 1 class but knowing my JP teachers they will ask you why you didn't come.
It's like the world stops when they ask you that question. And it's so hard to say no to them! Jajaja I don't even know how many times i have apologized for things like homework or just being a minute late for class, or from getting sick or mixing up the dates for when something was due or not knowing the answer to something.
Its actually quite funny. The other day, 尾花先生(Obana sensei) asked nick why he didnt come to class the day he was suppose to do his presentation. (this is the same anti-social guy that doesnt even do the bare minimum of work. i dont even know why he chose to major in japanese. . .he doesnt show any enthusiasm for it. and hes really bad at teamwork. . .) anyway, at first he stayed quiet. teacher asks again. he says he doesnt understand her question. she asks again using super super super easy language. and then he answers, but his answer was kind of bullshit. i stopped paying attention in the middle of his excuse.
All of us know why he didnt come. He didnt want to do the presentation and figured it would pass by the time he showed up again. That wouldn't really work though since we actually have extra time this last week. . . It's like......with a japanese teacher, atleast all the ones i've had, never forget anything you do. yea theyll be polite in asking but you know what they mean. its no secret. its even like that with my russian teacher.
I didn't come to class ONCE and the next class day she asked specifically why i didnt show up. I confessed that i had my period and how shitty it feels the first day.
Even with Shingo, although he acts very leniant and layed back, you better be prepared and have gotten a 100% otherwise hell start asking why you are in his class. I dont mind these teachers though. In fact i really like it. It forces me to be better. Verses those supper nice teachers that let things pass: i dont feel motivated. I guess im just used to the tough love teachers. :) I think ma is like that too.
She's nice and cares. Just don't piss her off. You reeeeeeally don't want to see that. Jajaja i remember when lisa was acting up and thinking she could ACTUALLY win a fight with ma. Maybe that works with her ma (my aunt) but not with my ma. Me and luis (cousin) were sitting in the living room when this was happening. We watched it all. Then i told him "you might want to go to your room unless you also want to be involved". So he went. I stayed watching a bit thinking "yup. . . she shouldn't have done that", and went to Luis room and we started playing gears of war.
It wasnt anything surprising because i used to be in Lisa's position except i wasnt acting up. I just did stupid kid stuff. Ma still talks about how i was the best baby. So quiet. Didn't even cry when i was born. While it may be true i know shes just making fun of me too since she feels i dont shut up now.
Ma just called. Sarasota, Florida trip is official now. yes!
Approaching metra station now.
