Soooo.

About a month back I was all like, "I'M-A BE PREPARED FOR REGISTRATION THIS TIME."
So I looked up classes for next semester early and planned things out and put them in the course cart thinking, "FUCK YEAH. I'M READY FOR THIS SHIT."

[Edit: The day before] Yesterday morning I met with Advisor-Sensei and the meeting pretty much went like this:

Sensei: Good morning~
Me: Good morning~ Class meeting~?
Sensei: Yes, let's~
Me: So I have this this and this.
Sensei: Awesome, and nothing overlaps?
Me: Nope~
Sensei: *PRESENTS REGISTRATION ACCESS CODE*
Me: *TRIUMPHANTLY LIFTS UP THE REGISTRATION ACCESS CODE AND DISPLAYS VICTORY TO THE WORLD. ALSO, APPLAUSE.* Oh~ and I HAS A MAGICAL JAPAN BOX.
Sensei: Wonderful! Oh~This looks like osenbei~ Go forth and enjoy this gift~ :D
Me:
THANK YOU I WILL. :D
[/end meeting]

Later, in Spanish class, people are talking about Spanish classes next semester and how they're filling up fast. It doesn't help that there's only two classes offered that aren't lower level grammar classes. I'm still a bit disappointed that my schedule doesn't include any Spanish, so I decide to go check it out after I finish with classes for the day.

So after class I go to the registration page and look. As expected, both higher level Spanish literature courses are filled. I shrug and think, "Oh well, my schedule's full anyway."

And I look at my schedule again.

WHAT THE. WHY. REALLY? WHY.
WAY TO JUST GO AND CHANGE ALL THE TIMES YOU HAD YOUR CLASSES SCHEDULED FOR.
SDKFJKLDSJF WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME? ;A;
SCREW YOUR CLASS. SCREW IT.

So now I have a much better schedule. >:|

That said, I signed up this morning and my superior schedule looks a little something like this:

The Classes That Were Awesome & Didn't Change On Me So I Kept Them:

  • Intercultural Communication
  • Beginning Japanese II
  • Intro to Japanese Culture
  • Film Music: The Art Behind The Scenes

The Awesome Classes That Replaced The Infidels:

  • Contemporary China
  • [Maybe] Peoples & Cultures of South & Southeastern Asia
...I guess it didn't change as much as I thought it did. But originally Film Music was just a "Maybe when the 16 credit limit is lifted and if there's still seats left I'll do it." Now Peoples & Cultures of S/SE Asia has taken that spot. I know that a culture class is more important toward my major, but I still need my fine/performing arts credits for general university study too. Besides, for some reason Cultures of S/SE is still completely empty, so I doubt I have to worry about it filling up. Also, the professor that's teaching it has really bad ratings on Rate My Professor... not that that should influence me that much since it seems like most of the reviews on that site are from butthurt students that didn't get the grade they wanted, buuuuuuut... e.e;;

Also:

Classes That Were Dropped Because We're At This Time OH HEY JUST KIDDING:
  • World Mythology
  • Something about the UN and the world economy. IDK or C anymore.
Shame on you. SHAAAAAAAAAAAME.

SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.

So...
Well, before I can make this entry I have to provide some background stuffs, since I haven't been real good about updating super-often lately. XD;;

I'm super psyched for Anime Detour this spring. It's going to by my first anime convention ever and I seriously can't wait. I keep having dreams at night about buying things there. Which is kind of sad, since I should be going for AWESOME PEOPLE but...

Anyway, every time I go to work, I think to myself, "FOR DETOUR!"
It's become my rallying battle cry, in a way.
Any time I go off to do something to make money to spend at Anime Detour, I proclaim this to myself, and head forward!!

And that's part one of the background story.

Not long ago Sensei [That is, our Japanese teacher. No one calls him by his real name. For serious. I'm not sure I even know his name anymore. He's always just been Sensei. Well, I guess he signs his e-mails "The Great Darkness" but...] said he was taking a travel study group to Japan this coming spring. He sent all of his students an e-mail about it. Not long before that, I had tried to explain the difference between a travel study and studying abroad to Mother, and so I forwarded her this e-mail thinking, "Here's an example~" She's really worried about me studying abroad for a whole year and doesn't really feel comfortable with the whole idea, so... yeah. :|a
I guess I can't blame her, but you know.

Sensei had sent out the e-mail in order to gauge interest, even if it was unlikely that you'd go. Seeing the expensive price and knowing my family isn't exactly rolling in dough, I replied saying, "Interested, but I'll probably need some divine intervention if I want to go."

I talk to Mom about it later, and she tells me she thinks it's a really good idea since it's worth credits and more importantly because I'd be with a whole group and a professor instead of just by myself. However, the price is way out of our range.

Thus ends part 2 of our back story.

At work I've been training for how to close at night. Previously I could only work during the lunch hour and the evening meal hour. As a result, I've suddenly been getting a jackton more hours. Last night I closed by myself for the first time, and it actually went better than expected~
[Well, except for the fact that I forgot to take out the cardboard when I took out the final trash. I set it right on the counter. Right in-front of me. AND I STILL FORGOT IT. OTL
Oh well. It was only like, one and a half boxes. :|]


My raise finally kicked in. [It was only 10 cents, but still. BUT STILL.] And my most recent paycheck was much higher due to SLDFSDLKJ MOAR HOURS. :D

So Mom says, "Well, maybe if you keep getting paychecks like this, we can work something out."

And now on to my main entry:

"FOR DETOUR!!"
JUST BECAME
"FOR JAPAN!!"
