Just dropping by....

Mon Apr 7, 2014, 10:13 PM
Since today is the Premium Membership for free day thingy, I thought I should drop by for a sec....

So, what's going on in my life?
Well... Basically university happens (since 3/10.) And that's more or less everything happening in my life.
I'm a full time third year student (Junior for the American people, I think...)
Im taking five courses: Communication Techniques I, Translation I, Morphosyntax I, Introduction to Narrative, and Rhetoric I... I believe all are okay.

  • Communication Techniques (basically last year's Oral Communication in steroids) is interesting even if I feel I'm not ready for the impromptu speeches thing...
  • Translation... Well, I honestly get bored as hell in that class. There is a lot of theory that makes sense (and I think is great) but the the teacher just assigns readings that my classmate have to present in a exposition which makes it soooooooo boring and kind of pointless. I would rather have her (the teacher) explaining everything in her own words instead of relying in us (the idiot students) :XD: Still, I do think I like the subject matter... I just need to stop procrastinating in the class and read the assigned textbook instead of playing Pokemon or read fanfics....
  • Morphosyntax is ok. I'm not a big fan of Grammar classes (in English at least... I like those in Spanish), but the teacher is so great that I think I can manage to at least tolerate the course. We'll see.
  • Introduction to Narrative is kind of a sore topic... I like the course (I don't mind reading a lot,) but it's at 7 AM!!! I'm certainly not a morning person. And then, the teacher has terrible accent and grammar when she speaks. Don't get me wrong, I know most of UCR's English teachers are not native speakers and thus we will have some kind of accent. But this lady's accent is really bad and her grammar is not really good. It seems like she doesn't even tries to speak while monitoring herself and that makes the class kind of hard to follow. I think all the students wish we could just correct her or something :S At least the textbook is interesting..
  • Rhetoric.... I'm still not sure what to think. I reaaally loved Composition last year and Rhetoric is it's 3rd year counterpart and still I don't have the same awesome feelings I used to have. Maybe, I'm just speaking too soon.
I was also taking Japanese 4, but in the end I decided to abandoned my dear Nihongo since I'm too lazy to keep up with it and all the homework from the 5 courses of my major. :(

So besides university....

Im planning a small cosplay for the Cosparty 2014 convention.... Just a minor character of Kamen Rider Wizard, since I still don't have money to finish my Wizard Flame Style one.
I'm also a photographer for a small otaku Fanzine, which means that by now I know I'll be going to almost all anime conventions in the near future. Though, it's a good and bad thing at the same time, since it's difficult to cosplay and photograph other cosplayers simultaneously (even if almost nobody knows what the hell I'm cosplaying) XD

I guess this is it for now...

I'll try to update this thing "soon" next time.

bye~ :nods:

Oh hey there, I just wanted to thank you for the fave~~ ^.^

Also...a bit of a shameless plug, but if you'd like to follow my work, other than the work that gets put up on dA then you should head over to my Facebook page (Link in my signature) and hit "Like". It would totally make my day!

Either way, I really appreciate the support you've given me thus far! :) (Smile)
