This isn't a real post

Hey, everyone.


So last week I showed Nakano-san and Itou-san my blog, and apparently they showed it to a bunch of other people, and now I have gotten a bunch of requests to translate my blog into Japanese, because even if pretty pictures cross language boundaries, English does not.  Unfortunately, translating my entire blog would be A. insane and B. insane and C. really hard, so I'm going to have to pass on that.  However, I am going to try to at least make some of the upcoming posts bilingual, so that the Japanese-speakers can at least have some sort of idea what's going on.  They're not going to be direct translations, because A. my writing style in English is pretty drastically different than anything that can even be attempted to be conveyed in Japanese and B. I'm not that good at Japanese (oh gosh, now will be the chance for you all to find out EXACTLY how weak my Japanese is, oh dear).


In other news, I FINALLY SUBMITTED MY RESEARCH REPORT.  It wound up being 79 pages (21,093 words); for comparison, my senior thesis was 28k. I feel like I managed to say most of what I wanted to say, although I probably could have said more if I had the time/energy/typing stamina.  I haven't been sleeping well for the past...oh...three weeks or so, 'cause of the insanely gross heat, so right after I submitted my report, I passed out on my bed and napped for two hours like a pro.  But then I felt a bunch better!  My air condition is amazing~


Anyway, next time will be a REAL POST about my last tsukinamisai at Susanoo Shrine (noooo), my last calligraphy class (nooooo), and my last Japanese class (nooooooooo).  Basically, it will be a bundle of sadness.  Until then, I shall be listening to "Christian Bale Is at Your Party" over and over and over and over and over and over...
