Back from Hawaii

I'm back from Hawaii. Actually, I've been back for a few days. I don't have anything to talk about, though. I've been spending most of my free time since I got back watching episodes of House, as I'm sort of out-of-gear for writing right now.

My trip did inform me of one thing though: I need to work more on my Japanese studies. There were a lot of Japanese people around, and I was only able to pick up small bits and fragments of their speech. Had I been working on it seriously since I got out of High School it ptobably would have been much better, I'm guessing now that I may very well know less vocabulary-wise than I did then.

Of course, language barriers don't hinder my understanding of universal language, such as the case watching a Japanese woman swat her son in the head after he made some smart-aleck remark on the elevator we were on. :D
