i really like balconies. they're a really neat concept. a little bit of outdoors without going downstairs. plus, you have a really great view of what goes on around you, without what's going on around you having a really great view of you. for instance, from my balcony vantage point i watched four brannerites play a friendly game of catch, and even watched one of them accidentally overthrow the ball and hit a car. i could see what they could not, namely, the baseball-sized dent in the car's hood. i thought that was cool.
i have a japanese final tomorrow morning at 9:30 am. that's early. before that, though, i'll need to study a whole lot. that sucks.
