mahajanapada

My life now revolves around Indian history. In fact, there was a period of time last week when I couldn't get away from the subject - on Thursday I edited Yuko's paper on the history of Bollywood films, on Friday I tutored Haebin and two of her classmates on dharma and karma, on Saturday I met with Tsukasa to discuss the social organization and ecology of pre-modern Indian villages, Sunday saw another meeting with Haebin, and later that evening I started the first of three papers for my ASIA 474 midterm, with the final product completed at 4:00 am on Wednesday. One of my essays was easily subverted into an anthropological discussion of subsistence strategies, although that won't be the case with the paper we have due in two days' time.

A downside in all of this is that my printer ran out of ink after printing out the eleventh and final page of my midterm. I ordered another cartridge from Dell using overnight shipping; it's five days later and I still don't have a new cartridge. Dell shipped it out on time, but DHL has done an extremely poor job of actually getting it delivered. In the meantime I've done my printing with dark blue ink - and both assignments turned in using that color were graded at 125%, so perhaps I should make the switch permanent. Min also ran out of black ink, while Wendy bought a new laptop that doesn't even have a port big enough for her printer's USB cable. Lucky us.

Can't you use a printer in a computer lab somewhere in the campus? Or that's not available or convenient?

My computer access on campus is pretty limited - I spent two hours waiting for a free terminal in the library without any luck earlier today. The anthropology lab is restricted to graduate students, but I might be able to check at the foreign language lab ...

Thanks for asking, Inok, I might have a solution now!

I was going to deny that, but I didn't get any sleep last night because I was up writing a paper. However, after I helped Haebin study she invited me over to her house for galbi and kimchi soup!

Is the invitation to visit still open? And ... how long will you be in Australia?
