Extra Units

I am enrolled in 14 units for this semester. Only 5 units (thesis = EEE 198) is really required for me. Considering that I am still a full-time student, I opted to take additional units to make good use of my vacant time. I took 6 units of higher Nihonggo (Jap 12-13), and another 3 units in Advanced Computer Architecture, a graduate subject.

I am like a hybrid BS-MS student since I had been taking graduate courses already. The subject I took, (Elma -> classmate) is being taught by David Patterson himself. Patterson is a professor from University of California - Berkeley, a renowned author of a Computer Architecture book (which we had used last sem). Mode of teaching is via recorded video. This subject is actually a long-distance learning program since our teacher is from the "other side".

As for my Nihonggo skills, I'd say it's rusty. It was about 2 years ago since my Jap 11. There are already too many 'Kanji' to be familiarized with. I need to catch up with my "fresh" classmates. I don't want to end up being the class goat. Anyway, we had an activity last meeting dealing with real Japanese students. It had been fun trying to understand each other. It would be nice if I can have a Japanese friend to talk to. I can teach him/her English, while he/she can teach me Nihonggo. Come to think of it, it would even be better if the Japanese friend would be a woman. ;)
