    It has been metaphorically forever since I last posted. Jeez. I’ll make up for it, promise. (I’m procrastinating from studying) I have 2 rants that I really need to go on before I can do anything else tonight… So I finished 5 exams last week, that was brutal. Really brutal *Segue* Alex Chernik, a freshman, [...]

    Remember those two exams I took? One in Bible as Lit. and one in Native American Indians? Bible as Lit. (the one I thought would be easy) = C Native American Indians (the one I thought would be hard) = A- What. The. Hell. (ps. that C will not happen again.) This picture is terrible, but [...]

    Yup, again it’s been a while. Last week I had an exam in my Bible as Literature class. It wasn’t very hard, and I studied well for it. However, on Monday I have another exam in my Native American Indians class. I don’t think I’m going to do as well on this one. There is [...]

    Yup, I didn’t post anything all weekend, mostly because I was busy. Not much happened this weekend. I went home to mow our lawn (which takes about 4 hours, I live on a farm) and in the process, broke a window with the tractor. Yup, pure talent. I also said goodbye to my pet rat, Doki, [...]

  • Whoa!

    Alright, so this week has been awesome! Okay, so maybe I’m lacking sleep… a little bit, which means that my focus and attention in class has been difficult to maintain, but WHOA. It’s been good. Last night I served food at the salvation army. I feel very fortunate to be able to serve these people [...]

    Hello again UVM and UVM prospectives! After four classes, you would think that I would be drained, but that is so. Not. The. Case. In fact, armed with a Dominos pizza and a large coke, I’m ready to do some Japanese homework. (For anyone reading this that is even slightly interested in Japanese, TAKE IT. [...]

  • Hello world!

    epoquett on Life of a Japanese major at UVM
    So this is going to be my first post. I’m a little crunched on time, so I’ll be brief. I’m a junior here at UVM, majoring in Japanese and minoring in English. I’m currently living in Converse hall. I love UVM! And that’s all I have to say for now. I have to go over [...]
