Updates from Stomping Grounds

One of the advantages to having the cheap-o, $400 black-Friday special laptop is that I can keep it out on the table, without much fear that it will get stolen. All of the data is backed up and, aside from the idea of someone creepy going through my photos from my college years, there is very little that would be lost if the laptop were stolen. Oh, the joys of laptoppiness.

Japanese class is kind of kicking my butt. Admittedly, I had not been studying as much as I should have been during the last couple of days, but I am committed to continuing this pursuit. My friend, James, keeps me motivated. We're in kind of a friendly competition to learn what we need to for Monday's class.

In a week and a half, Obama will be President-Elect . . . that makes me very happy.

That's it for right now. I am going to try to keep this updated more frequently . . . since I am traveling quite a bit, I might actually have something interesting to say.
