Been a bit off for two days.

I Could not log on yesterday as the Japanese internet said the blog did not exist.

I overslept a wide margin...In fact I slept almost 17 hours.
Funk was due in part to dehydration, sunburn and blisters and also due to bad news from school that is unrelated and therefore is hidden behind spoiler the spoiler tag.

As I've mentioned previously, ODU has also formally stopped recognizing CLEP credits.

I don't mind the fact that I've had to drop out several happens...but this is pure maliciousness.

I'm already having to retake classes because most of my transfer credits have been retroactively rejected (though in fairness there weren't many of those) or because I took the clases too long ago.

I have options of course. I can drop the minor...or the major as, by a fluke of scheduling,  I'm closer to getting a major in Asian studies than a major in Oceanography. However, I really did not spend the last decade and a half trying to get a degree that ends in "Studies".  My other option is to storm into the deans office with a bag of angry weasels and a glue gun, but my current location rather precludes that option.....

Tomorrow I plan to be leaving early for Kurihana, and Kamakura. Wednesday or Thursday I'll be hitting the bullet trains on a two day bumble, though I'm still undecided as to which way I'm headed, north or south. I've got 11 more rail pass days, and the Typhoon and its associated rains are now quite cleared up. Money is tight but hotels in Japan are pretty cheap.

Next week I'm going to try to  get my Fuji pole.
