the update

5. ever try to write a paper and you end up so blocked it's like you can't talk?  That's me.  Luckily D, my savior and goddess, hashed it's shit out tonight, and I actually wrote the thing.  It's still got to be edited, but I'll do that in the morning.  At least the critical parts are *there*

2. Tomorrow I need to a) finish reading for Asian Horror, b) skim reading for Globalization, c) complete at least 1 (or hopefully two) applications for summer Japanese study, d) go get a manicure.  I know, it's weird, but trust me, necessary.  These women did my eyebrows last time I was there and ... they are masters of the eyebrow.  Anyway, they're good with the digit painting too.  e) kanji quiz, f) study 8 types of grammar

1.  CRAP there needs to be more time in the week.  but at least I feel like things are back on track.
