He has a boyfriend :)? Cool. Do you ever hang out with them both?

Aww, poor senpai. That kind of thing happens to me all the time. So you wrote your test in romaji? If not, how did you spell it then? As "se" + "n" +"e" + "i" or "se"+"ne" + "i"?  It just occurred to me that it's actually hard to make a spelling mistake in Japanese only out of thoughtlessness. Even just the hiragana symbols make you more focused so things like accidentally leaving out a letter don't happen so much. Though I guess you could accidentally mistake one syllable for another.

As for bothering your sensei for no reason, anyone can make a mistake so don't feel too bad about it. And I guess I should follow my own advice when I do something like that as well.

So what kind of class did you have with that professor?

So England wasn't one of the main countries in Hetalia:D? I feel bad for such an imperial power of old. That quote is kind of hilarious by the way :D. 

Oh, I completely forgot about bathroom breaks. Wonder if I'll find the time. I hate to leave in the middle of a class so I'll need to be careful about how much I drink and when :D.

I seriously doubt there's gonna be any free food for us since it wasn't all that expensive. As for sports games, I'm not sure how it works at our uni or even if there are any games you can attend at all.

You don't have to pay any tuition till you reach 26. So unless you're going for a doctorate degree there's a good chance you completely avoid it since you have up to 7 years of free studying. And we can go to any state university in our country and I think that in Slovakia you don't have to pay tuition either. We have private universities, too, but they're not really popular or especially prestigious. Also those are mostly only business or media schools, maybe some law schools but the range of subjects they're offering isn't much to speak of. As for the quality of education they provide, it's debatable. It's true they tend to have better equipment but no one really knows if they have better teachers and it's said that those universities don't really demand much of a student.

Basically, I'll be paying only my living expenses. It's also possible to request a stipend for that but I don't think my family's income is low enough that it would be granted.

Sounds like you really did have fun :). So, does Heather not like working with kids?

I'm still at home (aka my grandma's place). I have one more week to go. It's still up to debate whether I'll move into my dorm next Thursday or Friday.  

Well, a friend of mine introduced me to this lovely Thai lesbian movie called Yes or No so when I discovered Hormones, I didn't hesitate to dive into it. I think you could like this series. It's not as gruff as Skins. There is some sex but the shots are much less explicit than in your average US series, there is some drinking but not too much and other than nicotine, no drugs appear until the second season and that's only one character. And it has a lot of cute couples, at least in my opinion :). Especially the two boys were my favourite though I actually enjoyed the straight couples, too, which seldom hold any appeal for me.

And Thai language is lovely. It's also much easier to decrypt than Korean though as of yet I haven't managed to quite reproduce its sounds :D.

So, which version of Queer as Folk did your friend try to get you to watch? The US or the UK version? I didn't like the UK version but I fell in love with the characters in the US version rather quicky.

What I appreciate about Skins is its sense of realism though it's tough to say whether it was too exaggerated or not since I don't hang out with similar sorts of people to judge whether they're really that messed up. What I hate about many UK series though are reboots. It often happened to me that I'd just come to love all the characters, then the season ended and the next one they go a reboot the series with completely different characters.

Wow, your friend is nice to a level I can't even comprehend. I don't know about the US but that phone costs as much as a decent laptop here :D. And even lending you a computer... :D He must really be a great person.

So did they tell you what happened to your computer? How did it end up totaled?

I hope you do/did well on your vocab test. I'll keep thinking of you today, just in case :).

So is there any distinctive difference between your classes when you have Matsumoto-sensei and when you have Yui-san? I'm really scared of Watanabe-sensei, especially as I have only two more weeks before it all starts. Since I wrote an email to the Czech professor and she replied in a really kind way, I'm not nearly as nervous about her classes. But I'm a bit wary at the same time because I was warned about this one female professor who always puts on a kind face and then she completely destroys you when you get about writing your thesis or do some kind of a presentation. I can't recall the name though so I'm not sure it's her.

I haven't read Hetalia so far though the concept of it is really interesting. So I take it your friend's a fan, huh? :)

So do you always make it in those 10 minutes or do you sometimes come in late? I'm terrified it's going to happen to me. My friend said it's not a big deal if I leave a lecture a bit early or come in late but with my own social anxiety issues I'll break down long before I would get used to that.

I signed up for Orientation Days so perhaps someone will finally provide some answers for all the questions I have. I'm kinda miffed I had to pay for signing up but I guess I shouldn't complain since we don't have to pay any tuition here (so far, our lovely government keeps talking about introducing it soon) but it kinda feels like playing  a pay-to-win video game or something.

I don't really think you need to reread what you write :D. But I should.

Anyway, how was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? 

I helped my mum's husband fix the fence in the garden since I stayed at their place for the weekend. We also had to paint it and it was kinda time-consuming but I felt really good about myself afterwards. There's something about manual labour that is really satisfying. And I got to try using an electric saw and a drill, which was really fun for me :D. And I still have all my fingers intact :D.

There's also this rather cool Thai series I'm watching. Do you know "Hormones"? It has this really cute gay couple and in the second season there is even a female couple and while the characters' storylines are a bit too melodramatic, it's really enjoyable. :)

hey how goes it?

Hi! So how did it go at the tech centre?

And don't worry, I hadn't thought that..yet, anyway. I must admit I probably eventually would if it was like a month or two or something :D. But there are many possible reasons and I'm usually the one who replies late anyway.

Oh, so have you got any word about your essay yet? There's always a chance the teacher will be so enthralled by your thought process that the factual mistakes will go unnoticed. I know it's not likely but it would be a cool scenario.

So, have you finished hiragana already? I wonder at what pace we'll go. I'll have 5 hours of Japanese a weeks...two 90-minute classes with a Czech professor and one two-hour class with a native speaker. Watanabe-sensei is actually a popular university figure. I wonder how he's going to be live. He's supposed to be rather mean to first years but he's said to get kinder if you hold out till the final year :D. He can also speak Czech rather well.

Horses can live rather long though, can't they? It's a bit pessimistic to be thinking about it in those terms. Though I get the feeling. I know I'm going to be devastated when our dog dies and she already gives us scares every time she has an epilepsy seizure. So, anything new with you two? Talked about anything fun? Though I don't know if you even met again since you sent your last message. How often do you have Japanese?

As for the good news, I finally got everything solved. I gathered enough courage to actually call the dorm manager and we arranged a meeting where I'll sign the contract - the day I'll be moving in my dorm room. I also pushed the day I'll be moving back a week because I don't know what I would do in Olomouc for so long if I didn't have any classes. Really, I should have called her right away but I'm really shy about that stuff. I almost threw up before I dialed that number but it was so easy after she picked up. Rationally, I know it's not worth it worrying so much about stuff like that but it's still in my nature even though I've been getting better.

I successfully managed to sign up for every class I need to take. The only issue I have now is that one of my B classes collides with one of my Japanese classes but I can solve that by going to the other group's Japanese class that is a bit earlier in the day. I emailed my teacher asking her if I can do that and she said it's not a problem unless the classroom gets too full. It's a bit risky but I drop the B class I might have trouble getting enough B credits in the future. But my friend said that I can easily pass that B class (History of Japanese Cinema) just by doing the required reading, she had like 10% attendance in her second semester of that class. So if I miss some of those lectures due to the other group's Japanese being full, it shouldn't be a problem. Hope I get to go to the first one though because I would feel disoriented otherwise.

One other issue is that I'll be going from building to building a lot and I often have only 15 minutes to make it. I guess I'll be doing a lot of running.

As for some of the questions you asked, we did get a handbook but it's written in the "cool style" so sometimes it's not really all that helpful. And we do have an advisor for our uni department but we were given a rather harsh lecture on how we should not bother them with everything unless it's absolutely necessary - that we should first seek advice from our classmates and our senpais and I don't know who else before we go to them. That's one of the reasons I was so nervous to call the dorm manager, worrying that similar rules apply.

Regarding the dorms, in theory you can sign up whenever you want but the sooner you do it the higher your chance to be given a bed in the dorms is. If they approve your request, you're supposed to have 14 days to pay a deposit and sign the contract. If you don't, they can offer your place to someone else. As I found out about the fact about a month and a half since I signed up, I panicked. But my dorm system account still showed that I have my reservation so I paid the deposit and I was just stressing about the contract. But I guess they give you a lot of leeway and I really should have just called. Seriously, I was hardly sleeping and now I can only shake my head at this unreasonable behaviour :D.

Anyway, sorry I wrote so much, I got a bit carried away and I'm too lazy to check for mistakes now so sorry about that, too :D.
