    I woke up at 7 am to register, and I quickly went back to sleep afterwards. I had a mid-term in EE112 today… and I messed up on the last problem. I found out my mistake 1 min before the hour was up. 🙁 I also had a half-midterm in physics, so far it is looking good. 🙂

    I have yet to sign up for PSY202, I’ll save that for last.

    Seems like everyone on our floor in the dorm “discovered” skype. Everyone was like skyping each other in a conference. This is good for my no-exercise diet, less moving required needed to talk to someone.

    現在還有8個小時左右就是新年了。在這裡還有24小時。今年就是雞年。

    My pre-Chinese New Year’s Post, since I will be sleeping when CNY hits HK approx 8 am Pacific time. Keep your eyes open for those CNY shows. Feb. 9th is offically 初一. I may get to go home this weekend to 過年 with my family at home. Hopefully all works out well.

    Some CNY Sayings, hopefully I didn’t repeat too many from last year’s post.
    恭喜發財
    萬事如意
    身體健康
    利事逗來 😉

    Don’t ask me too much with my limited vocabulary 😛

    Since KD is nice enough to link to my blog I thought I should return the favor and link back to her’s. At the moment she only has 1 post since it was just started. While I’m at it I will test the TrackBack URL feature since I never used it and I’m not 100% sure what it does. 😛

    我朋友说� 在欺骗我
    � 不是美国的,IP地址是可以设置的
    而且� 刚刚的英语讲的太烂了,语法好差
    但词汇量不错
    而且美国是不可以上QQ的
    我只是实话实说
    � 要是生气我也没办法
    我也是觉得和� 聊天很有意思才一直和� 聊下去的

    Rough Translation:
    My friend says you are lying
    You aren’t American, your IP can be setup/changed
    And the English which you just said was all broken, very bad language
    but vocabulary is not bad
    Also, people in the US can’t go on QQ
    I am only talking about the truth and facts
    If you get mad at me, I can’t control you
    I still think it is very interesting chatting with you, and can continue to chat with you

    Since when was my English so bad and my Chinese so great.
    LOL. I only wish my Chinese was THAT good. 😛
    Considering how bad her English was… but we don’t need to get into that. xDDD I wonder how she can judge others English when her owns was so poor considering she was a non-native speaker. Even native speakers may have some trouble sometimes… Just amazing 😛 Gave me a good laugh.
