Lately, I've had a lot of work piling up, so I've unfortunately been forced to put Japanese on the backburner a little bit. I really do wish I could take the time to get a firmer grasp on the new kanji, but thanks to the effects of Unlimited Reading Works and an exhausting 3-person skit-drafting session last night (the first time I've ever been a part of a triad skit), I don't even have the will to write this post in Japanese. Actually, I'm feeling just plain worn out right now.
But I have to talk about something, right? So let's go with some lighter fare. Last night, some friends and I got together to watch some old videotape episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that my friend Julie had discovered over the spring break. It was a healthy dose of nostalgia, for sure, but EVEN BETTER was the fact that it was still genuinely fun to watch. I feel privileged to have grown up watching such an awesome show.
We even had the Green Ranger Saga episodes. Anyone who remembers the original Power Rangers knows that those were the best.
On another note, I've been making good progress on this semester's speech draft. For those of my classmates who read my blog (I'm sure there are a few), it might sound a bit familiar, because it's definitely about Gunpla, the subject of my last post. I apologize, but lately I've been successful integrating elements of anime into my class projects, and I want to keep using this method.
But first, it's time to take a nap.
