Monkeys, Aliens, and the Meiji Revolution

So my livejournal client has suddenly decided it's too good for my computer and keeps uninstalling itself. *shakes head* Go figure. Does anyone use a Mac client they can recommend?

Can I just say, right now, how much I really don't want to go back to class? With a little over 48 hours left of Spring Break, I'm starting to get that itchy feeling. You know, the one that makes it feel like hopping on a plane bound for the Japanese wilderness (all five miles of it ^_~) is a much better idea than going back to campus? I could live with the snow monkeys, or something.

Speaking of monkeys, I finally got off my butt and finalized my spring schedule. On the surface, this has little to do with monkeys, unless you consider the registrar's staff. But, I found out that I have to take three more science classes in order to graduate. I like science, or rather, I like the theoretical parts of science, with the hypothetical particles and the black holes and radiation. What I don't like is the math, because that part of my brain just doesn't work. That's why I read layman's books on Quantum Mechanics and such. I just want to hear about the interesting stuff-- I'll trust the theory-room guys that all the math works out. So, my science classes will all obviously have to be heavy on the theory and light on the actual math. ^_^

My spring schedule looks like this:
Physical Anthropology III- 9:00-9:50 (MWF)
This is where the monkeys come in, in case you were wondering. I've taken PA I & II, but I skipped three last spring because I wanted to take Dr. K's Chinese Communism class. More proof that Marxism is evol, I guess. ^_~)
Physics: Life & The Universe- 10:00-10:50 (MWF)
The summary says this class will center around the possibility of life on other planets, human colonization, and differing evolutionary tracks. Aliens? I'm so there.
History of Japan: 1850-The Present- 6:30-9:00 (Tues)
Because I would die if I didn't take at least one history class per quarter. Apparently the professor who teaches it is really nice (and, according to some guys, hot ^^;) so that's a good bonus. Plus, Japan is just <3.
Thesis Work- (pretty much all the damn time)
Yup, it's that time. Time for me to gird my loins, take a deep breath, and face the terrible Thesis Monster. *headdesk* If you hear about a girl who's brain exploded in the microfilm booth, that'll probably be me.

I'm also auditing Japanese 203, because there's a new teacher who is not Fushimi-sensei, and thus I may get an actual chance to learn instead of being yelled at. Whoo.

That's my life. Monkeys, aliens, and the Meiji Revolution.

Well, Hokkaido is cold, but there are hot springs. Anyone in the mood for a plane ride? ^_~
