Last of the required information in order for my application to be reviewed...Hope I get in! My GPA is high and I'm a good student/person, they'd be missing out if they denied me.

Okay, so I really want to apply to PSU(Portland State) next week after I sign up for part-time in the Fall semester of this year, at my community college. However, I feel like I should wait the 2 months until my grades are posted for this semesters classes. If I do that I'll have a higher GPA....but I'll lose 2 months advantage.
Oh never mind, I'll just wait until the grades are posted.

A couple days and counting until finals.
I'm alive so far despite the cold weather, lack of yummy food, sleep, vitamins, and time. My poor fingernails definitely didn't make it unscathed and will probably be non-existent after exams. I will update after exams are over but just a heads up, I will be writing a book over break, in the meanwhile, if you have any exams, study and good luck with them!

Hey all! New update~

Okay, so I was VERY frustrated with my current college as they aren't offering ANY courses this year, well unless I want to major in nursing or Diesel Fuel Tech...but I'm sort of fine with it now. They literally forced me to maybe have to extend my stay here, which is not going to happen so I talked with my econ teacher and found out that the schedule saying I either had to have passed the prerequisite or have permission was just a miss print. So, I'll be taking, College Algebra, Micro-Economics, American Gov & Politics, and Sci-fi and Supernatural Literature.

Also, it is confirmed that I AM going to Tokyo(more like Yokohama) summer 2012 and that I still have no idea of the dates or how long I'll be there.

So, yesterday was my 18th birthday. I went to classes then went home and did home work, even ate the last piece of my chocolate cake with whipped cream frosting...Until I got a call from the Director of Housing and Student Activities. He wanted me at  his office, so I drove all the way back to campus, again and met with him about the International Club. Finally, it'd been about 2 months since I'd put in an interest for it!
He'd said we'd only talk for 5 to 10 minutes, I looked at my clock only to find we'd talked for 2 hours.
Some how he'd talked me into going to the Halloween Party the Student Senate was putting on at the North Campus. So I went to that around 9pm and hung out in the halls while all the kids went in and 'partied'. Turns out a lot of students on the senate are my classmates...and the Director also talked me into joining the Student Senate...I don't know how that all happened. I didn't get home until 12:30am though...I had classes at 6am too so I'm pretty tired but oh well, at least it's the week end! Right?

I turn 18 and all of a sudden I'm in an International Club and a new member of the Student Senate..

I got my new glasses! These are heavier than my last ones but I like them better, they only cost $53 USD after insurance too.~

Wow, it's been a long time, huh?
Perhaps I'll tell you a little about what's happened...

Well, there's this guy, A, I think I like him? But he's probably already got a girlfriend...and I know if he didn't, he still wouldn't be interested in me so I guess we'll just stick to talking in the halls and at work occasionally.
Why do I like guys that aren't interested in me? It's so hard to find ones I like too....
Hmm.... Oh well!

Also I'm writing a comparative thesis on NKorea and SKorea for my Comparative Politics class. There's not much info on NKorea government)
I also handed in my final Narrative essay for my Expo Writing class this morning... So far I'm carrying a 3.6 GPA but it might drop in a month or two as I'm just not feeling well, but I'll live. :P

I don't really know what much more to talk about so...

ja matta ne!

Well, I passed training.
I worked my first shift alone today. I had my first break down cause work stuff today and I called help desk about 5 times. The last person to order helped me in wanting to come back, they were very pleasant but the fist couple calls I had were all crazy men....within 50 miles of each other. They must be in a club called, "You give us back our money or we'll go down there and shoot you!" club.

anyway, I went out to eat with Mieko...turns out she's 34, huge age gap! But we get a long well.

School is...school I guess? Got knock out of my econ test online so I have to retake it in the morning and if it does it again I have to email my teacher and get her to reset it.

So, an update of my week.

I started training at work last Monday and classes last Tuesday.

Work...the training is hard but the people are nice. I guess the thing that bothers me most is all the talking, my throat is super sore and it's only been a week. On the bright side, I like the hours they have me scheduled for, AFTER training that is.

Class...are okay, I think my politics teacher is a little crazy...CLICK HERE TO SEE WHY!!
Turns out my Economics class is a hybrid and my Expo Writing is a distance learning.
I don't really know what else to put so I'll just list somethings from this week:

-Caught Nichole from my summer algebra class in the hall and went out to eat with her.
-Made a couple friends in my intermediate algebra class. The class is 30 people and they stick us in tiny desks from the 80's.
-Was on the news last night as part of the feature on distance learning.
- Figured out I'm the youngest in all my classes and of course the only Japanese Studies major.(The college doesn't offer it.)
-Went to walmart last night after work to pick up some things. Saw my friend, Nakia, a girl from my algebra class, and went through two different check out lines because the first girl forgot to scan my cat and dog food...and of course she was of schedule before she could ring them up! ugh.
- Surprisingly don't have a lot of homework. I just need to finish read chap 1 in the writing book, take the econ tests online, and do 0.3 chapters of math homework.

A summary. I am highly disappointed in the super easiness of my classes. Work was hard I don't get home until 11PM and only get about 5 hours sleep right now.

BUT, All in all... I survived this week.

Finished setting everything up at the work place. Just need to get my work ID on Monday before training.

I get every job I interview for.

The above sounds SO...conceited. It's true, I have yet to not get a job I interview for. Every time I go for an interview I hope to not get the job, to for once be turned down. In the end I end up working there. Then again, I haven't interviewed at many places and I have a strong command of body language & a bright(white) smile. I know what I want, I just need to focus on working my confidence up. I didn't do that today, it wasn't an interview and I thought I'd be handling with the same woman. I wasn't. I hate when they hand me off to someone I don't know, especially a guy. Unprepared + guy not too much older + keeps staring @ me =  me over blushing.
I can't stop the blush, I just don't like people watching me so closely...Especially guys, it's embarrassing, annoying, and brings out my shitty shy personality.

I don't like Shy Crystal, she gets me in trouble and makes me turn down opportunities.
I want to be...me, but not shy. is that so much to ask??

I got my student ID at the college today. Why can't I take a good picture for ID's? I always look stupid.

Got the job! Just have to pass a drug and background test, an because I'm not a loser- of course I'll pass them.

I had to get a teacher reference, problem. I was my teacher in High School. So, the closest person to my 'teacher', another problem, she's out of town. Turns out after an hour long hunt I found her after calling her home to see if she was still in California or not. Caught her by a day~

So all around I'm happy, it's a good job with around $8.75/h in pay.
