Hopefully going from the hotel to York U won't take too much beyond 30 mins via taxi. Streets out here are looking okayish although it seems awful cold and icky outside. The weather forecast never mentioned anything *this* cold! Didn't bring anything suitable for this sort of cold (other than my coat). >.<;;

Yesterday proved to be most painful for the Visa bill. I blame Ysa and Ginny for that. *nods* That sounds like a good plan. :P There was much chocolate, and tea, and YARN! O_O;; FSU will share a bit in all of these, but the bulk is mine. ^^; Choco was simply evil; pure and simple evil. (And your fault Ysa.) Teawise, my tea selection was starting to look a bit scant after November, so it's just as well that I managed to pick some things up. But the greatest damage was definitely done by the yarn. >.<;; I'll be giving some to FSU, hopefully she'll like it. ^^; Hopefully I bought enough for at least a vest or a simple sweater. (I think so...) ^^; And there was some nice sock yarn (sadly FSU's >.<; ) and a really nice and soft yummy. ^o^ That one's *mine* Hands off! No sharing! Yes, I greedy. :P Thanks so much for a lovely afternoon Ginny! ^o^

Last night, I finally sat down and tried out a couple sections of a practise test. (Wait, aren't I supposed to do that much much earlier?!) Listening seems like it should be okay, but the vocab! O_O;; I didn't expect it to concentrate so *utterly* on kanji and reads. >.<;; If the actual test is like that, I'm sunk. I'm not that precise in my reading. (Why figure out a word read rather than gloss things over and getting the meaning from the kanji itself?) *sigh* Add to that uncertainty with the reading comp and...... it's going to be iffy. I guess I should've started studying more than 1-2 weeks in advance and not procrastinated so much in the process either. ^^;

Ah well, such is life. ^^; The worst thing is that I'm really not keen on studying *words* anymore. I'd rather pick them up in some sort of reading concept. Still, I might see about picking up a kanji-a-day or a word-a-day calendar and hope that might help me. >.>

Anyhow, reg is from 8:50-9:50. Time to head out. (I'll be taking a certain GH doujinshi with me to read if I get bored while there. I was bad and started reading it on the flight over.) ^^; Good luck to everyone writing the JLPT!
