A week I will try to forget
Nick: I seriously expect you to do two things. Upload that video, and comment on my blog when I'm in Japan.
Meaghan: I got your ketai clip today. Man, it looked WAY bigger in the picture. But it is really nice. We are planning on throwing all you jerks some kind of party when you get back, so it's not all good. It was kinda funny. Your letter matched up kinda with what's going on..... You have been looking for that movie for WAY TO LONG.
Here's a link to your site Meg. I don't think enough people read it. I don't know why. The old name didn't lie. It really is a barrel of monkeys.
Joel: I hope that you didn't want to keep the party thing secret, but I think it's ok. No one really likes suprise parties. Oh, and here's a link to the site of JOEL. Take THAT Joel. Two can play the linking game.
Everyone: I don't think people realize I have another page, or maybe you jerks just don't care. So THIS IS MY OTHER SITE. bookmark it. It's doctor recommended. And here is MY PICTURE SITE which will be chock full of Japan and summer photos soon enough.
that's a lot of hypertext. anyway. I just want to officially finish the schoolyear, and forget everything I did this year. Congratulations to the Schoolyear of 2005/2006. You have won the Shittiest Schoolyear of Marc's Life award. I hated pretty much everything that happeded this year, with the exception of about 5 people I met a Mac who didn't such balls like everyone else I met this year, and a few classes.

Why not me?
Exams start tomorrow for me. I have one at 7pm which I am feeling really confident about. Althought I had some difficulties with semantics during the year, all the info is really starting to sink in. I am definitely going to be able to keep my mark near 80%. I did the math, and I figure I have at least 80% in 4/5 of my classes. If I do well on the exams, I should get some more bursuries and a few scholarships next year.
The gang and I went to our pre-departure orientation on Tuesday. It turned out to be a big waste of time for anyone with half a brain and at least a smattering of common sense. They told us all the things that can go wrong and what to avoid, like hookers and violence. Aside from the copious amounts of free food and drink, it was not worth the class I missed. Everyone going to Japan sat with us, including Jon and Yu who are destined for Osaka University. I am really lucky, since everyone going to Seinan Gakuin is not nearly as stupid or annoying as the other potential exchangees that were there. Everyone and their brother apparently want to exchange to France.
Speaking of France, I have decided to take a French class at Mohawk this summer. From my understandings, there are a lot of French students exchanging to Seinan, so it wil be a good advantage to brush up on my French. I have wanted to start practicing again anyway, and this way, I will be in good shape to practice with the French kids once I get to Japan. Aaron was telling me about his upcoming exchange to Quebec this summer and I would really like to do something similar, but I need to raise money for Japan instead. I have momentarilr given up on Mandarin until exams are over. I figure I can really get into it 4th year, while I'm wasting away in linguistics class.
Thanks for reading, now turn off your computer and get a hobby. nerd
Everybody has probably already seen this pic, but I don't care. It is my favourite picture from my trip to Japan. Leave a comment on your opinion of it.
