9 days till China!

30 days till Japan!

I don't have much to say other than this week is going to be one of the longest weeks in my life... wayyy too much to do between now and then.

Good luck on finals everyone

So here we are - April 19th. We are getting down to the home stretch. I'm already starting to feel the pinch - work is piling up in every class. But I'm sure everyone is feeling that right about now. I'm envious of all the students going to Pirate games and outside playing sports... but I just have too much to do.

One might ask, "very interesting pic". Well, if you live in Pittsburgh, I'm sure everyone knows all the wild weather we had last week. Pittsburgh was lighting up with bolts every which way. I got on the backporch of St. Ann's and snapped a shot of the storm. I wish I was at a different location (other than staring right at the parking garage), but, I'll take what I can get.

So, in less than 20 days, I'll be overseas experiencing the culture of China and Japan. So, I really hope to be updating my blog more often to keep an update on what I'm doing over there. I'm not bringing my laptop there, but I'm hoping to just borrow someone's or find an internet cafe. It should be a lot of fun, and I'm already preparing to take literally 1000s of shots. I'm probably only going there once in my life, so I might as well make the best of it.

Last weekend was Easter Break, and although it was way to short, I'm glad I got to see my family and all of my friends. I especially love playing Tetris with my cousin Isaac on xBox for hours. I don't know why it entertains us so much, but it does.

oOo... and just so everyone knows, Alias will be premiering Wednesday at 9pm on ABC. Of course I have to miss it because of ORL spring workshop, but iTunes just picked up the show, so I can download all the episodes I missed. So tomorrow, I will be finding out what building I'm RAing in next year - I'm predicting either Ann's again or Vickroy. Either way, I won't have to share a bathroom with 35 other people ever again... haha

Eeeek no pictures...

I don't know if it is the network or something, but I can't post pictures. Major sad face :-(

Well I'll try to do without. So over the weekend, I went out with Ashley to LuLu's Noodles, and I think I had the best Lo Mein of my life there. Now I compare all chinese food to the Great Wall Chinese Buffet in Allison Park, which is amazing. But somehow, LuLu's topped them. I feel sorry for anyone who has not been to this restaurant yet... located in the heart of Oakland on Craig Street, it features great noodle and rice platters for a reasonable price. Wow I need to go again...

Afterwards, we headed down to Harris Theatre downtown to watch American Gun. This was my first time to an independent movie theatre, and it won't be my last. They show great movies for a great price - $5 for students. The movie wasn't bad, although it didn't really have an ending... it just stopped, which was a little irratating.

On Saturday night, I spent a majority of it locked in my room working on an Accounting budgeting project, but at around 8pm I stepped out for a bit to play bingo. Good thing too- because in a few games, I racked up a Tshirt and $20 in gift certificates.

AND WHO IS READY FOR EASTER BREAK?! I know I am. I'm tired of constant projects and assignments. I'm looking forward to almost a week off right before finals. I'll be home the 13th through 17th, if anyone cares.

FYI: If you are over in the UK, stop taking pictures of monkeys from your camera phone. This probably explains it all.
