More about college
Hey everybody, sorry for not posting for a few days. I just finished finals this Friday. Got totally murdered on my Python Programming/ numerical analysis final. I ended up answering 2 out of 10 questions. This semester I took a bunch of classes on technology and internet and I think I might want to end up working in the IT field. I took one class where we learned the basics of the binary system, logic gates, flip-flop switches, and other digital technologies. The professor who teaches the class has 4 PhD's and loves himself more than anyone I've ever met. The topic for the final report was how we grew and how we became motivated through taking his class. No knowledge of the subject matter was necessary to write the report at all. I'm really glad to be done with this semester on one hand, but on the other I'm one step closer to finishing college.
Going back to visit my family in Florida in a week. This week I'm gonna stock up on presents for my homies back home. Getting some Pokemon cards for my little brothers. I was thinking about getting them Pokemon black and white version but they wouldn't be able to read it so it might be a waste.
Going back to the questions people asked in my last post, Japanese people generally believe Japanese girls to be the easiest in the world but I'd have to kindly disagree. If you're the kind of dude who hits on any girls in a ten mile radius of you, then you'll probably have a lot of luck with Japanese girls. If you prefer going for girls you know have an interest in you then you might not get any Japanese girls at all. Girls here, for the most part, are submissive. They want a guy who will take care of them, make important decisions for them, and do just about everything for them. In exchange, the Japanese girl will act fragile and less intelligent than she really is because this is considered womanly and cute. Cheating is rampant in Japan. Much of the popularity of love hotels (hotels you can rent for a couple of hours) is for people to have a nice safe place to cheat.
More about my college. My college has a pretty good reputation in Japan and one of the major advantages of going to a school with such a reputation is that the school goes to great lengths to maintain this reputation. My favorite example of this is the police officer retained by the school for the sole purpose of preventing its students from facing any consequences. Basically if the newspaper headline says, "Waseda students arrested for drunkenly smashing window in red light district," the schools reputation will suffer damage amounting to far more than the cost of keeping a PR representative cop on payroll. So whenever a student does something dumb like damage property and is then arrested, the school police officer negotiates a way for everything to blow over with minimal consequences.
That's all for this time. I'm gonna go back to working on music now that I have some free time, feel free to ask me any questions in the comments and I will answer them in the next post.
