SEAS Graduates

"The bound-up brains of the St. Bernhard dog are held in equilibriam in the middle of the boulevard"

Who'd have thought that repeating phrases such as that above would help you learn the Kanji... 950 down, 1092 to go.

I heard yesterday that from my entire department (the School of East Asian Studies, encompassing Japanese, Chinese and Korean Studies), only 2 graduating students received Firsts this year. Is this abnormal?

I also realised that there's going to be a maximum of 18 of us going to Japan for our third year, out of the 47 of us that started the course.

Congrats to my good friend Lars on winning the Margaret Daniels Award, in recognition of his degree which was the best in the entire department. What a clever chap!
