I feel I have no choice but to start a list!

+  First off, my advisor is going to check and see if I can actually take the Advanced Japanese Reading class that I'm not qualified for (and then sneak me the translations so I can keep up).  It's fabulous  having someone actually think about me and look out for my academics finally!
