It’s finally the weekend! It’s been busy… The research is going well, I’ve been working on projects all week. We have to perform an 8-minute skit for Japanese class – Michael and I are doing “Scenes from Pulp Fiction.” Friday was payday. I turned in my annotated bibliography for my English research paper, had lunch with Mike, and cashed my check. After that was Coffee Hour – next week is the last one!! Sad… Shiho bought us all food and drinks because she will miss us all. After coffee hour, Bryan and I went to our work picnic, which got rained on… It was alright. We got some work pictures taken but the weather was so dreary that no one stayed very long.
After the picnic, we went back to Bryan’s dorm and watched Lost in Translation. I remember it being alright the first time I saw it, but this time it was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I don’t know what it was about a second viewing that radically changed everything, but I really loved it. If you’ve yet to see it, watch it! Watch it twice!
Saturday was the Festival of Nations trip for my dorm. Mike and I signed up and got up early to go. It was a lot of fun, although I think it was too long of a trip. I was very tired by the end. Also, the food is very expensive as usual.
Another big part of the show which I haven’t gone to in previous years is the dancing. They had a lot of really great dances. My favorites were the Chinese and Indian dancers. The Filipinos and Irish were also very impressive. The Indian dancers were too fast to get a clear picture of…
After we got back, we tried to make reservations for the new Red Robin restaurant in town, but they were full for the weekend. Bryan and I watched The Graduate with Ryan Rico. It was a very strange movie. It was funny, but I don’t see how it’s in the “top 500 movies of all time” list. After the movie, we went and found Mike and went to Racy’s.
Today after work I went over to my parents’ house and looked over some Nagasaki Trip forms. I filled most of them out and aside from not being able to find my passport at the moment, it looks like I’ll be going to Nagasaki next Spring!
It was a good weekend;
School’s almost over…
