Well I pulled the trigger for a DSLR :-D.  I decided on the Pentax K100D Super.  I got it for around $400 after shipping, taxes & a rebate.  Now I just have to wait 5 weeks to get it (shipped to a sister, who will very nicely file my rebate for me, then hopefully ship […]

After picking up my free ticket to an Oktoberfest event (for being an Expat :-p) this Sunday, I swung by an electronics place known as “U-Town”. I was told it was the place to go to get electronics here…Upon getting to the store, I realize it was more like an indoor (4 floors) electronics […]

Why my classes are starting so late…

12 October, 2007 (18:03) | Daily Life | No comments

After talking with another teacher earlier this week, apparently (part of the reason) why my classes are starting so late is that incoming freshmen have 2 weeks of Military Physical training/Boot Camp before coming to class.  If they don’t make it through the university, they have to do military service (since the public is paying […]
