End of term and vicious lies

Done...DONE FOR A MONTH! No classes, no pointless meetings, no essays, no assignments...no band!!!! This is great. It's like summer vacation, but in spring...
I'm going to address a vicious rumor that has been floating around about me. No doubt, you've heard this lie, and probably even spread it around a bit yourself...you know how you are...
People have been saying that I'm going to be in Japan "forever". This is a nasty lie that I would like to put an end to right now. Forever's much longer than most people realize, and my time in Japan will be a little short of it.
As of this post, I have almost exactly 4 months left. 4 months really isn't that long...certainly not forever. If you think about it, it's hardly any time at all.
Think of it like this: 4 months. 1/3 of a year...about 16 weeks. So that's 112 days, 2688 hours, 161280 minutes, or 9676800 seconds. Numbers don't work for you? Ok then...
My study abroad will be done in about:
- 16 Mondays
This could also be 16 weekends, or 16 episodes of your favorite Must See TV show. Likewise...
- 5376 Episodes of Friends
- 336 meals
Counting breakfast...it's the most important!
- 4 bottles of shampoo
- 6 tubes of toothpaste
- 0.33 pairs of new shoes
- 3.5 tubes of chapstick
- 13 gallons of milk
- 5600 peices of worthless spam
- 224 peices of decent email
- 48 journal entries
- 112 showers
- 672 round-trip drives to Columbus from Jackson
896 if you're me...
- 107520 Windows Reboots
Time it takes to reboot, not...
- 149 Windows Reboots
Times you had to reboot
- 5376 Linux kernel recompilations
Number of times you could recompile the kernel. You never have to...
- 0.000001 Linux users sued by SCO
De wa, kono chousakekka kara...ahh...no!!!!
Anyway, from this you can obviously see that I will not, in fact, be in Japan "forever." If you start feeling the need to spread this rumor, please return to this page--possibly directing your source here, also--and see exactly how long I do have left in Japan. If you do, you'll realize that I'll be back in America before you know it...
