日本語ハウス&授業の始まり&カーソンズ

I've got too much I could say about the past two weeks (and then some) to cram into one journal entry, but then I wouldn't want to take the time to jot it all down either. Anyway, Nihongo Hausu is really amazing. Everyone here is so awesome, and it was like instant best friends for the most of them, something I've never really experienced before. The early arrival days were some of the most fun I've had in a long time, Japan aside. It was basically a cycle of talking, eating, watching movies, and playing cards, but at the same time a period of intensive friend-making. As for movies, the selection included... GO, I Heart Huckabees, God of Cookery, Mallrats, Kung Fu Hustle, ALWAYS ~Sanchoume no Yuuhi~, and 3-Iron -- what a mix. ;p

Anyway, I can't think of what else to add to that without ending up with a long-winded tale you may not care to read. Classes have been pretty good so far...Japanese has over 40 people in it, which is crazy, but on top of those in my class last semester, there're freshman, people who took the Intensive course over summer break, people who were studying in Japan last year, and a couple of transfer students. Anyway, looks like a fun class; no textbook, just real material to learn from, like newspaper articles, short stories, TV programs, etc. My computer science classes are kinda odd but interesting, I suppose. Intro to Discrete Math apparently briefly covers a ton of topics as opposed to delving deeply into just a few; right now it's basic logic principles expressed algebraically, not too difficult. I don't totally understand what the point of CS 352 (Digital System Fundamentals) is yet, but I think it's dealing with how computer systems work on more of a physical level, but not to the point of actually looking at a chip or anything. At any rate, we've just learned methods of conversion between binary, decimal, octal, and hexadecimal, and the same logic stuff as in the math course but from a different perspective. CS 354 looks to be the most interesting of that trio though, on assembly language and the processes that occur between the levels of hardware and high-level programming languages. Hard to explain, but somehow it's kinda neat.

I started work at Carson's too, and while it's a really easy way to make $8.15/hr and three-hour shifts are really awesome, work itself is not exactly a party. I work every week Tuesday 8-11 pm delivery and Thursday 7:30-10:30 pm cash register, and every other week Saturday 10:30pm-1:30am delivery and Sunday 4:30-7:30pm sub making. Delivery's really easy 'cause you spend the whole time just walking and talking, cash register's not hard but counting the drawer was pretty icky, and I haven't worked subs yet. Anyway, I'm sure I'll get used to all that too in due time.

First Kaiwa no Kai of the year was today too! So much fun. :D
