Konichiwa 私の友人 (my friends)

I am currently learning Japanese which is amazing. I know a few words. Anyway off to commemorate my livejournal entry to something useful- The Yule Log.

A Yule log is a type of cake which is prepared during Christmas time. It is also the highlight of the rest of my week. Instead of catching up on my work and studying for my test in Chemistry which I do not want to fail, I will be baking a cake. A useless cake. Oh joy. Now where to get the supplies? Hmm I do not know. Sounds fun though, anything involving procrastination is fun. I am also reading Neil Geiman who is very good, Also another procrastination source, youpee! The results for my position on the Newtonite are coming out soon, I am very nervous. If I don't get what I want to get (very descriptive I know, Ms. Beh loves it), I will be a paper pusher for eternity. *Insert racist comment here (actually please don't).

Irish digestive biscuits are delish. I have been craving one every since yesterday, in my opinion you can have it with either cheese or with tea. I might be wrong. I probably am because I'm not Irish and yesterday was my first time trying one. 

Also, what is it that people have with the Scarlet Letter? Honestly, the book is not that bad. I actually like it. His language is florid, it's true, but his points and ideas are good. I mean there has to be a reason for why people have spent 200 years reading it. 

For those who wish to learn Japanese and a taste of anime (yes Anime), download the podcast called JapanCast.net. The lady who speaks has an interesting Japanese accent while her husband tries to know Japanese but constantly gets owned by his wife. Sound familiar?

The Scarlet Letter (yeah you forgot the "the" muahahah! okay anyways) isn't bad...it's just that it's OVERKILL and it's sooo overdescriptive and he's like OMG LOOK AT THIS METAPHOR LET ME MAKE THIS METAPHOR EGHT HUNDRED MORE TIMES AND MAYBE THEN YOU'LL GET IT. But it's good....plus I could tell who the father was from the beginning (the first time we meet him)...so.....that wasn't as suspenseful as I had hoped. Oh well.

ily Japanese a lot, but I want to learn German and Korean first. SORRRRRY!

Anyways I should get back to my multitudinous hw and I will come visit you during lunch one day because I missss you! <3
