Grateful…

February 25, 2009

…that I’m not allergic to hazelnut.  Hazelnut coffee and Twix is a delightful combination.

…for unexpected meetings, fruitful conversations, unrestrained laughter, people to love.

…for truth and coherence in times of BDFML.

Currently attempting to study for my Chinese exam.  It’s only two chapters but the amount of grammar we’ve covered is…mastodonic.  (Side note: it doesn’t help that I’m in a class full of Chinese people who, regardless of whether they are truly “non-native” speakers or not, have been exposed to Chinese in some shape or form all their lives.  It comes so much more intuitively to them.  Thank goodness there isn’t a curve in language classes…Or if there is, for my sanity I’m kept blissfully unaware.)

My linguistics professor (the crazy absent-minded brilliant one) extended our problem set deadline until…Thursday.  It was originally due Wednesday.  Only one more day?  :(  I’m still trying to decide whether this is a blessing or a curse.  On one hand I won’t be freaking out about it tonight as much as I would have been, but on the other hand I don’t know how much headway I’ll make on it tonight because of this Chinese exam, and regardless I’ll be freaking out about it tomorrow because I also have my CC presentation for which to prepare.  (Oh, yes.  I’m so excited to lead a two-hour discussion on Hegel.  Joy.)

In other news, spent most of the day today with the Japan kids.  Not everything (read: very little) went as originally planned, but I think it worked out well.  I feel bad because they were all so tired (especially the Kaz).

All in all the week is going surprisingly smoothly.  And fast too.  As fast and painless as it could be going, considering various given circumstances.  I’d like to think this is a testament to God’s mercy.

真希望...
