It has been a while since I updated... I've been really busy. There is always something I should be doing... so when I find a moment in which I've done everything that should be done (or at least most of it) I really don't know what to do with my self. I need to find a bunch of good books before Christmas break or I'm going to be bored out of my mind. Speaking of good books... I'm reading Memoirs of a Geisha right now, and it is very good. In fact it is so well written that untill yesterday when I naivley went on a google search for a "famous" Japanese artist that is mentioned in the book, I had no idea that it was fiction. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed, but at least I wasn't the only one who thought it was real. There were numbers of people on message boards about the book that had done the same thing I did. Anyway, it is a very good book none the less, and the movie comes out on the 8th. I told Nick he has to take me to see it. I'm terribly excited :-) Only two weeks until class and finals/juries are over. Only seven and a half years left! Thats right... I've already begun the countdown to Dr. Odette. It may still seem like an awfully long time to you, but seven and a half sounds much better than eight to me.
