A quicky update:
Yesterday was Dean's Date, which, I don't know if this exists at other schools, but at Princeton, it means rushing to a departmental office to hand in a paper (or papers) you just finished writing four minutes before the 5:00 deadline. It also means a nightime of going out to the "street" and getting drunk in celebration. The past couple two weeks have been nothing but papers and more papers and I was too exhausted to go out.
But Dean's Date is only the lull of the storm. Next comes another two weeks of finals that I haven't begun studying for. I have one tommorow. I should be studying, but I thought I'd take a minibreak to give you guys the scoop. I disappeared pretty much, just been checking DA as a shadow. I want to continue working on the Zelda animation as soon as possible. I should have a bit of free time over the weekend, considering that after friday my next final isn't unti wednesday. Too much information, but anyway.
I also just wanted to mention that my roomates threw my friend and I a going-away party. We had cake and played with clay. Yay! I made a small clay Link figure. You can see him here: [link]
: He's so sexy.
Anyway, where is it I'm going? To Panama! My major (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) has this program where you go to Panama to study ecology, and biology and all that fun stuff for the semester. I'll have internet access so I can keep up to date with you guys!! Though I probably won't be posting anything more than wildlife pics. gomen nasai!
One last thing. I know I should have been studying, or at least working on Zelda animation, but I couldn't help myself. I began a never-ending quest to find Steamboy. There's one version floating around the internet, and I managed to get my hands on it. The version was really crappy looking, but you could still see the animation, which is all I really care about anyway. It was gorgeous animation. I can't wait till it comes out here, so I can go see it. I saw it in Japanese without subtitles and, while I could understand basic stuff, when the adults start talking philosophically, I get lost. My favorite part was, not to spoil anything, when Rei says "naka ga suita, okaasan!" (Mom, I'm hungry!) really whine-y like. It was such a simple thing, but it was really cute and funny the way they animated it. Ther was so much more I enjoyed, but I'll wait till it comes out in theaters to bring it up again. ^_^
sigh. Ok, back to studying. Sorry for the not so exciting journal entry.
