Thanks for recommending the District 9 soundtrack! It's really good. In fact, I have it playing on repeat right now. I used to listen to anime OSTs but not so much anymore. As for movie OSTs... if you like something classical but very dramatic and creepy sounding try Black Swan. The OST for Memoirs of a Geisha does a great job of mixing in traditional japanese instruments with regular orchestra to really create something exotic and beautiful. Thor some great music fit for epic battles and the sort (it makes reading textbooks feel a lot more interesting when it's in the background lol .)

It's good to hear back from you :) I can't believe you only had ONE exam per week! Mine were like a day or two apart. Barely enough time to cover all the material. I can't believe you fell asleep during the exam! That's ridiculous! I'm always so nervous with any kind of testing so that's the last the last thing I could do. Are you in Commerce or something like that by any chance? I have microecon this semester and it's such a blahhh class. Though that's mostly the prof's fault. He has a sort of "Grandpa-voice" that acts like a sedative of sorts. On top of that, he reads all his lecture slides straight without any sort of expression. AND it's at 8:30am. It's just a horrible combination and it's so hard to stay awake ):   The rest of my courses aren't too bad. I have cell bio, geography, chem, and physics. I was super excited to be done with math for ever only to realize that my required physics is specialized for engineers and enviro sci (my program). So I'm stuck with a course that incorporates ALL the complicated calculus that engineers use! So sorry for the rant  :P You took French? I'm quite jealous! I don't have any electives till next year and even then I have a restricted list so I don't think I'll ever be able to do that. Are you any good at it? Hahaha I know your soft spot now! Tsunderes :D I'm taking it slow with anime right now. I usually get in about 1 or 2 eps a day if I'm free and I'm sticking to a single show at a time. I'm almost at the end of Hanasaku Iroha. I want to finish watching Penguindrum some time (I only got to ep 7). Did you catch that by any chance? As for the new season, I want to check out Mouretsu Pirates and Another. I might catch up on other releases if I have some spare time. I've watched a lot of non-anime shows recently. Now I'm getting into British TV too. You?

Hey, I haven't talked to you in forever it seems. I'm so sorry, I haven't been ignoring purposely.  I've been away from A-P and anime in general for the past couple of months. The university workload is lot tougher than I thought so I've basically been intensely nerding. I've been barely read anything that wasn't a textbook or watched anything that wasn't a simulation experiment! How's life with you? Had a good time for the Holidays? I personally couldn't get enough of sleeping in and resting after brutal exams :) Catch anything good lately? What are looking forward to in the winter season?

I'm stalled on Penguindrum... I guess it's worth finishing eh? Maze Runner is on my list to read. Let me know how you like it when you're done :) If you like fantasy mixed with twisted folklore/fairytales you should check out In the Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente. It's hard to get into at first but once you adjust to the writing style, it's a great read.
