    Don't think you're allowed to revive, but you can always start a new club. :p

    Things are uneventful for the time being, I suppose. Other than mailing the occasional resume and helping my sick mom when she needs assistance, I've got a whole lot of nothing going on right now. I game, I watch television, I do whatever I can to make myself feel like I'm not hurtling quickly toward old age :x

    I trust things are well with you? :D

    Of course not :p But if she went snooping through my VMs and found it, not much I can do about that!

    I suppose I had no idea, I just thought she was the most likely of anyone here to still be in contact with you XP

    ...or I could've been a crazy n00b that really did join in June 2009. XD

    As much as I've embraced the newer PC, I definitely miss those good old days when every active member knew eachother personally and I was the most controversial member out there. Xd

    The thing with chemistry was that I didn't put the work in to really connect the pieces like I did with calculus. Like, I'd recognize "Hey, this is like that other thing we did, I wonder if there's the same thing/what that means...", but then I'd just drop it. I'm not a fan of the phoning-in approach though, because it led me to having a lot of test anxiety in the last couple says leading up to a test.

    I know the value of answering questions really well: I've been doing it for 4 & 1/2 years. :p My opinion on that is, well, it's useful for solidifying or refining knowledge, but not great for gaining new knowledge. So if someone asks me a question that causes me to think, it might make me create connections between concepts that I previously thought were unrelated. And that's great. But to get that, I already had to study and understand those concepts in isolation.

    What I want is someone with more expertise than I have. Most of the difficulty of learning for me comes from knowing what to learn—it's easy to find tons of information out there; that's not the problem. It's knowing which of it to pay attention to that's the trick.

    That's where someone more experienced can come in and speed up that process for me. Clearing up all of that ambiguity and focusing me on the right things helps tremendously. In theory, that's what school should be for, but in my experience, it's failed spectacularly at that...

    I do plan to attend a university and do an intensive language curriculum, though. Living there and having to interact in the language will be crucial, but somewhat peripheral to the classes.

    I don't understand radioactivity, I'll give you that. I went through chemistry, but kind of phoned it in* and didn't learn a lot.

    (*Meaning I went to every class and studied for every test, but I didn't work on it much outside of class besides that)

    I don't imagine you'll be frolicking in the reactor a year from now. But I also don't think I'd be that far north, either.

    I may be going with another girl from my class. The only reason I'm hesitant about that is because I'm a lot further ahead than she is.

    One of the aspects of school that's got me sick of it is how often that happens. :\ People always come to me for help. I'd like to be the one getting help once in a while, because that'd mean I'm actually learning, not just bumping my head on the ceiling and having to pursue real learning on my own (this happened a long time ago for computer science). I had a good mentor in computer science about a year ago, and my understanding skyrocketed. I do really well when I can study and have someone there to bounce questions and ideas off of. And I know I'm that mentor for a lot of people. It's just...I'd like to be the student in that relationship a little more often.

    I'm mostly going to learn Japanese, so it'll be (hopefully) a pretty intense study. I'm sure I'll hit Akiba once, but that's not the real focus.
