up up and away

absolute hell of a week, and yet at the same time I made it through everything.  And didn't actually drop the ball, and even did my first screening of a film (Kurosawa's High and Low, which was pretty damn cool except the library copy was scratched in places and made things halt and stutter at times... but not most of the time). 

And I took a Classical Japanese test today!  Our first - the great part is that I'm actually feeling really good about this class.  The grammar that we're learning is all actually making sense for a change (instead of the way we get it in the Modern Japanese class where they tell us to do something with a verb, and make us practice until we remember it ... this is actually explaination.  And even though I suck at grammar terms, for some reason I'm able to remember the Japanese grammar terms.  Weird, I know, but I love it.

Finally, I'm actually sitting in Dallas airport waiting for a connecting flight to Sacto.  It's my dearest Mommie's birthday this weekend, and I'm going to celebrate it with her!  Apparantly there is a festival we're going to, and then out for fishy type food on Sat night.  And it's definitely cooler in California than in Austin, so I'm looking forward to that on top of all the Mommie-goodness.

When I get back home I will have a new housemate to say hi too as well!  I can't wait for that either.  I just have to figure out how to fit all the homework in somewhere.  At least I've read all the stuff for next week's film class...
