an adieu.

Tonight is my last night as a university student.

I will miss the almost-daily dinner gatherings, cooking and eating and laughing and talking the most ridiculous nonsense.

The sometimes bawdy, sometimes witty, sometimes incredibly lame jokes.

The texts that read, "Dinner tonight?" "Coming to pick u up now." "Want bubble tea?" "Movie?" "Study at Lockwood later?" 

The student association gatherings that come along with tons and tons of food.

The bland lunches at the school's food outlets.

The French Vanilla cappuccinos and apple fritters.

The endless bitching about schoolwork and classmates and professors (but getting everything done anyway).

The weekend road trips to Toronto for dim sum and karaoke.

The entourage of cars converging at the bubble tea cafe.

The hot chocolates during study sessions.

The partying and getting high and laughing for no reason at all.

The silly drinking games where we reveal our innermost secrets (but not the inner-innermost).

The long Facebook comment exchanges over statuses and photos.

The trips to New York City.

The camwhoring.

The impulse outings.

The late night mahjong and card games.

The stumbling home at 3am and sleeping till noon the next day.



Despite some hitches, it has been a good time.

And after tomorrow, another chapter of life begins.
To everyone who's graduating this year, or not, since it applies anyway! :D To everyone who needs a few wise words from a realistic person. It's lovely reading straight talk like this.



Written by Adrian Tan, author of The Teenage Textbook (1988), who was the guest-of-honour at a recent NTU convocation ceremony. This was his speech to the graduating class of 2008.

The bad news is that you don’t need further education because your entire life is over. It is gone. )
What I’m aiming for is to step forward into Korea!
My “Korea Boom” is, as usual, continuing. It’s been 1 and a half months since I’ve started learning Korean but recently when I went to Korea for the first time in half a year, I could read all the characters on the signs! I’m thinking that someday I’d want to cross over that line from Japan to Korea in regards to things like music and dramas and entertainment and so now, to be able to achieve that, I’m practising my Korean everyday.

Looking for the phantom seasoning
Lately Korean movies are passionate! Especially the movie “utsusemi” left an impact on me. Within a 1 hour 30 minute story, the main character didn’t even have 1 line. The heroin only had 1 line, “I love you*”. Despite that, it was done really well! And also I’ve been looking at other works by the director, Kim Ki-duk, and I’ve been watching a wide variety of Korean movies. Up until now I hadn’t watched anything but Japanese films. . it was unexpected to me though. And then, this time I’ve started to grow an interest in the country of Korea itself and recently me and Koyama went along with a mutual acquaintance of ours.

KoyaShige have become Korean fanboys, yo.

I feel so proud of them ;___; XD

I should scheme about sending them a DVD of the full season of Explorers of the Human Body; I think they'd really appreciate it :D
