So we're making tree graphs and the problem that we're finding the probabilities and trues and false for is about pregnancy test accuracy. So Mike sends me up to the bord with the words;
"Alright Dwaine, your pregnet."
Me: "Oh Dad'll kill me....well he'll kill the boy first than me."
Mike: *blink blink* "Maybe it's just a guy thing but why would he kill the boy first? You were both doing it."
Me: *working out problem* "Yeah but Dad loves me more!"
Mike: *blink blink blink* "I'm not going to win this argument am I? I going to put the proverbal sock in my mouth now..."
Me: "Is this right?"
Ah Math, almost as interesting as Japanese. I love Hollins professors.

Ma Che Merviglia
Dreamer, Fighter, Schemer
from the Castle quest.
all three Hooded
guided by Padrone Conigilo most blest.
out to where the Campanile can’t call.
into the Forbidden maw.
through the Bones that grab and claw.
throwing open the Gate with no Door at all.
through the shadows Lupi guide the Rangers
out of the Darkness to Dance with the Fey.
protected by those, Skeletal alone,
woven together strong as Stone.
Occhi to watch for any Danger.
for the Dragons that Mock and Goad.
for the daunting scarlet Glow.
for the Train that will never Show.
for the Clouds creeping low.
all because Padrone Conigilo instructed them so.
In the Ring of Blackened earth
the Dreamer speaks with Muses.
the Fighter disarms to Laughter.
the Schemer with the spirits Dances.
and when from this Haven they must go
Padrone Conigilo sends his Stag to guide them Home.

Arrivederci, Buona Fortuna
Running too fast to Fall
Not fast enough to Fly
Grass and Rock
Tree and Rain
Pass the Feather’s Breath in the wind
Racing from Fate
With no Escape the
Fubacchione rides his Murder
After the Wings
After the Innocent
After the Dammed
All the same to the Chaser of the Wings
The Chaser of the Flightless
Deaf to the pleas
Running too slow to avoid the Fall
Slow enough to Fly
Wings caught in the Net with the Silent Cry
Fubacchione the captor of All
All sown by the scythe
Requiescat in pace
Sluggish Wings that no longer Run
Nestled by the Apple tree
Still as the Stone
And away rides Fubacchione to chase
The Racing Wings once more
And parts are in Italian! here's one from today we wrote after wandering around outside for fifteen minuets.
(insert clever tittle here)
Friends to catch you when you fall
Clatter of dry leaves
Racing by the forbidden lawn
The whispers between wind and plant
the echo of the hidden bird's song
the Crunch of gravel
the Wall of stone
Steps on a wooden bridge all alone
the shy Trees swaying Dance
the small, small spiked Ornaments dropped by Chance
a lazy Stream, a winding Path
a clear blue Sky that stretches vast
the Cursed arches
and Broken rock
the Tunnel hidden in plane Sight
Squirrels that chatter and fight
the 4 way rode
watched by the Clock that never Calls
this is Hollins spring and fall
Now onto other matters. Japanese is going good. Same animated sense, smaller class as a few people dropped it. Psychology is now pure lecture but it's more like a discussion and it's so thought provoking! Tuesdays and Thursdays are my work out days. I have Tai Chi at 6:30. It's fun and the names are so funny. Monk stares at the moon. Parting wild horses main. White crane spreads it's wings. and you move slow and elegant and balanced (yin yang and all), and the whole time the instructor is telling us "And this would be a blow to the neck." "This is where you would throw them to the ground, or down in general, and bring your knee up to kick them as your hands move to block or strike" If you want to know what it looks like watch the Last Airbender cartoons, and look at the water bending. It's all Tai Chi.
Well after balancing my Chi and feeling very Zen, I go straight to Fencing where I then proced to preform fling lunges, slash, attack and move very quickly. It's grate. Monday and Wednesday I have work at the rock wall so I clime that.
Now to not academic things:
I now can give, I quote, "amazing" hot stone massages. and according to Roanoke law I can charge money as long as I don't claim to be a professional, don't do inappropriate things (never planed on it), and something was there about how me and the one enjoying the hot stones must match in gender...I'm at an all girls school. So I'm good to go! Hello laundry money! the rates as they stand now is $5 for 20 minuets, and $10 for 40. this is collage so I stay affordable!
Other than that nothing much is happening....so I'll see you around.
