Well, I’ve stayed up way too late as it is, so I’m going to keep this one pretty short. I spent a couple hours on Skype practicing Japanese with my new language exchange partner, so I manage to put in some extra effort on the language learning.
On a more personal note, I finally ordered the headset and carrying case that will allow me to switch to my new LG Rumor 2 cell phone. I managed to get a free upgrade recently, and I’ll be so happy to ditch the phone I’m currently using. The one I have is about 6 years old, and I’ve had nothing but problems making headsets work with it. =\
Alright, that’s about all the time I have for tonight. I will try to put in some work on my review tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll have some news about that. おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi Nasai!) =D

Well, the extra time I spent writing those up last night seem to have paid off, I’ve met someone who seems very nice and we have some similar interests.
So, between writing several e-mails and doing my Japanese practice, my brain is officially exhausted. I’m sure it happens to everyone, but I’m going to blame it on how little sleep I’ve been getting lately. After all, I’ve got appearances to keep up (although, I really haven’t been getting much sleep lately)! =P
I didn’t end up working on my Rosetta Stone review (big surprise, I know), and I don’t really have much of an excuse. I mean, I just sort of forgot. =P This is why I have this page you know, I used to do this with my Japanese lessons.
Alright, it’s already really late at night, and I’d like to get a little extra sleep tonight. おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi Nasai!) =D

I know if took me longer to get around to it than it should have, but I finally have an ad up for a language exchange partner. Course, I didn’t just stop there, I also ended up replying to another persons ad, so that might end up working out too. =D
I know my page has been kind of boring lately. I’ve really got to dedicate some more time to my Rosetta Stone review. But I’ve been kind of 怱々(I’m pretty sure that means busy. =P) lately.
But, I’ve been spending most of my free time working on my Japanese. I actually just found a new song I like the other day. It’s called, “Never Cry” by Maika. It’s a very strange style of singing, that under normal circumstances I don’t think I’d enjoy. Still, there’s something about the song that I enjoy. =P
Well, hopefully I’ll actually buckle down and do some work on Rosetta Stone tomorrow. I’m also kind of hoping the language exchange starts to happen soon. I think not having someone to speak with in the language is one of the more frustrating aspects of self study. Course, with the power of the Internet, I hope to overcome this problem. =P
Alright, it’s getting late (like always =P). おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi Nasai!) =D

I don’t really remember if I covered this in my about page, but I’m a big horror movie fan. I’ve watched more than my fair share of the classic horror movies over my lifetime, but my favorite has always been Halloween.
Well, today I had the unfortunate encounter I’ve been dreading for a few years. It seems someone thought it would be a good idea to let Rob Zombie re-create a John Carpenter movie. -_-
I was thinking about describing everything that I saw that was wrong with this movie, but I realized something, there’s nothing right with this movie. I mean, even taken on its own, it’s still a horrible movie. To be fair, I think they did manage to do one thing right. If I was forced (at gun point, mind you) to re-create Halloween, I’d be hard pressed to find someone better than Malcolm McDowell to play Dr. Loomis (this doesn’t actually help the fact that they ruined his character, it’s more a compliment in actor choice).
Well, aside from that, I haven’t accomplished much else today. I got in a little bit of study, and I shouldn’t be staying up much later (again). So, I’m off. おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi nasai!) =D
March 27, 2010
Well, I was planning on writing up an ad this morning, but I never really got around to it. I did, however, put in some time on my Rosetta Stone review. I hate to break it to everyone, I still have quite a bit more to go on that thing. =P
Well, I’m in one of those awkward positions right now. I need to head off to bed, pretty much as quickly as I can, but I’m not really tired at the moment. So, I’m debating whether or not I should use writing this as an excuse to stay up longer, or if I should just try and force myself to head off to bed.
I think the only reasonable thing to do would be to head off. =P おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi nasai!) =D
March 26, 2010
Well, I seem to have come across another person that’s not responding to me. =P Ah well, I figure I’ll give them until tomorrow morning and then create an ad of my own.
Well, I ended up being pretty busy today (had to remove a clog with an auger. =P). Still, the day wasn’t a total waste. I’ve put together a relatively small list of useful words I should add to my vocabulary (and, of course, I practiced them), so at least I’m starting to progress again.
I found out today that Crunchyroll has added all of Gundam Wing (yes, it’s in Japanese with subtitles ^.^). I can’t help it, I’m a total Gundam fanboy. =P
Well, aside from having some time to dedicate to my review tomorrow (as well as writing up an ad), I don’t have much else in the way of news.
Alright, I’m off. I promise to put in some work on my review tomorrow (and you’ll trust that, right?). =P I know I’ve been bad about it lately, but it’s been kind of busy around here (and when it wasn’t, I might have completely forgotten about it *whistles*). おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi nasai!) =D
March 25, 2010
Well, I got hit with a massive migraine this afternoon. Fortunately for me, it didn’t end up surviving past nine o’clock. Still, it did put a rather large hamper on my plans for today.
Despite my headache, I’ve sent off another request for a language exchange partner, so hopefully this one will actually respond. =P Still, I’ve realized something. I am far slower at typing in Japanese than I am in English. =P
I haven’t actually written an ad of my own yet, but I think I’ll wait until tomorrow before I worry about that. While I’ve got some free time now, I’m expecting that to change soon, so I don’t want to have too many people that I’m attempting keep this up with (it doesn’t help that they all want to use something like Skype instead of E-mail).
Well, I’ve got stuff to do tomorrow, so I shouldn’t even be awake right now. To rectify this problem, I shall make haste to bed! おやすみなさい！ (Oyasumi nasai!) =D
