It feels like forever and day before Dec 25, 1999.. which is when I leave for Chicago.. Ugh.. this time is gonna drag! I feel german right now.. smoking springwaters, and drinking eiswein.. i wish i could turn my head off sometimes.. im way too analytical for my own damn good.. i swear.. c'est la vie.. im learning conversational japanese right now in my sparetime.. i dunno why.. i get a kick out of it cuz it is a tad cliche..
