schadenfreude: pleasure taken from someone else's misfortune
It's always nice to know that I have friends who read my blog and LAUGH AT MY PROBLEMS! ;)
(23:05:34) happy_eclair: you talk to Mark on your blog (23:05:36) happy_eclair: how amusing! (23:05:37) happy_eclair: hahahaha (23:05:46) sachachua83: <laugh> (23:05:50) sachachua83: He reads it once in a while... (23:05:59) happy_eclair: :)) (23:06:09) happy_eclair: yeah, the panicking on your blog (23:06:13) happy_eclair: when you ought to be writing (23:06:22) happy_eclair: that is really funny <laughs>
Research is proceeding slowly but surely. Having found it nearly impossible to write in a scholarly manner without, err, actually having read scholarly sources first, I'm chewing through papers I find on the net. I'm _so_ glad the internet exists, too. Imagine what all those other researchers had to go through, tracking down paper sources?! Gasp, gasp. Anyway, I'm reading, and I don't feel quite so bad about my progress now.
My pen is still missing, though. =( My mom said that should help me learn to take better care of things. Yes, I gave myself _that_ lecture already. She also reminded me not to get too stressed out about the pen. Hey, that's why I write: I can get the stress out of my head.
And to all of you laughing out there: I know it's because you can just see me doing the Japanese-anime-full-panic mode... ^_^;
Random Japanese sentence: この犬はこの猫よりも私たちになつく。 This dog is more attached to us than this cat.
