It looks like I will need a new computer. It seems the hard drive in my current one is about ready to kick the bucket, so before that happens, and I lose all my files, I need to back them up (if I can) and see if they can be installed in a new computer. As I am a computer moron this should be interesting. So I may be gone for a few days. Wish me luck.

Looking forward to it.

Today I finally managed to catch up with my economics. I have a driving test tomorrow (just for a scooter), and a job interview which could bring in quite a lot of cash if successful. I hope everything goes well.

Anyway, I'm wishing everyone here a relaxing weekend. I hope to pick up The Count of Monte Cristo which I was forced to drop during May when I had exams, and was unable to continue since.

Oh, and I derived a sadistic pleasure at seeing the 300 million dollar The Green Lantern get bashed by the critics. When will directors learn that audiences aren't all that stupid....?
Anyway, I hope to see you guys around more often, and I hope to be around more often as well. Cheers.

And it's always good to see my two favorite people from Taiwan here, as well!

I may have a story coming soon to the writing section. Right now it needs a bit of work. woooork

It's really great to see you, Zara, and I hope you check back more regularly in the future.

Things are good here, despite the insufferable heat.

Glad to hear you both (Paul and Lara) are doing well.

It's great to see you back, Zara. Your intellect and wit has been sorely missed. Oh, and btw, this is Nolo.

Anyway, The bad news is that I don't get to take the summer off, as I have more exams in October. The good news is that I may be able to snag a high-paying English teaching job during the summer as well. It's always a balancing act when it comes to work and studying, but I like to think that I manage it rather well.

Anyway, I hope to see more of you Zara, and good luck with all your science classes. I hope Japanese is as interesting as Chinese Wink.

I knew the odds were in your favor, Laura, but when you know only one person in a certain country, and you hear this sort of thing on the news, you get a little worried. But I'm glad to see you are well and fine!

Zara, it is always a pleasure to see you come back! It sounds like you are thriving on a workload that would swamp just about anyone else. My hat is off to you, dear girl. You are going to be a force to be reckoned with wherever you go, and I mean that in the most positive way. Go for the gold!

I am fine. I am feeling better from what was almost pneumonia. I am still on antibiotics, but hopefully the worst is past.

That's how long its been since I last checked in here. To think I was here multiple times a day during 2008 and 2009, I feel like I've gotten lazier and lazier despite becoming busier and busier. I wonder if the two are related somehow.

So I thought that last summer was busy, right? Boy was I mistaken! This summer is WAY more intense. Last summer, I took Japanese language classes and did research 20 hours a week. Now, I'm taking cell bio and thermodynamics, doing research, and now working as a resident assistant in the summer residence halls! You'd think I'd be dead by now, right? Well, that's what I predicted, but somehow, I feel more relaxed: more at peace, I suppose.

By the way, I heard about that E. coli outbreak in Germany! I hope Laura's doing alright!

Anyways, I'll make sure that the next time I check in on here is NOT 1 year from now! Haha....see y'all later. I've got to go and start wasting time before someone gives me some task to do Smile

~Zara Mikazuki

Zara! Shocked It's great to see you!! bouncy

Paul, you're right. I'm having one hell of a week, but it'll be better soon. About the e.coli: The worst about it is the media coverage. And the fact than everyone stares at you whenever you buy a cucumber or some tomatoes at the supermarket, as if you were some kind of superhero... or an unbelievable idiot.

Seriously. There are 82 million people in Germany. 29 of them have actually died, most of which had weak immune systems anyway - children and elderly people, for example. Last year it was swine flu, before that it was bird flu. Each and every one of these diseases was supposed to wipe out humanity... except it didn't.

So don't worry. If the chance of me dying are 82,000,000 to 29, I'm taking that chance if it means I can still have veggies.

How are things with you guys?

I am back. And I am hoping that the E. coli outbreak in Germany hasn't affected our own Laura.

It's great to see you here again, Zara!

Well, I finished the exams, but due to a move, my PC is currently without internet, which explains my absence. I also haven't been very active in novel reading recently. However, I do plan to begin The Constant Gardener as soon as I feel that I have the time to be consistent with it. There are few things worse(in regards to novels)than being forced to stop in the middle of one, and not being able to remember certain key aspects a few months later....

I spent the entire weekend at a workshop in the middle of nowhere. Eleven hours a day of sitting indoors, to ensure we all get an idea of what "basic directing for actors" is all about. The first eight hours were fun, after that, it was just exhausting, especially since many of the group were complete beginners and had never so much as stood on a stage of any sort. But I learned a few things, so maybe it was worth it.

Heading to school now. I'm taking over my new class today, a fifth year this time, fortunately one that I know rather well.

Ugh. I've been sick as hell over the past week with a persistent cough and congestion. I even lost my voice (to the vast amusement of those around me), and I am still struggling to get it back. Plus the weather has turned very warm and humid.

So, how is everybody else?

Well, I just got a summons for jury duty. I'm supposed to report on June 2. Actually, I was summoned ten years ago, as well. It was an interesting experience. We'll see what happens this time. Of course, if I do get picked for a case, I can't discuss it, but I can give my overall, general experience when all is said and done.

I have been in the federal jury pool for 3 years. I don't know how it happened, but I keep getting summoned. I got summoned in April but requested a postponement until July. Good luck Paul.
