Tired but will have more time from now on!  
I hope I will, at least, for my week looks pretty busy.

  1. Finished Noken (yay, free at last). Did anyone in my flist attend Noken? How was it? I took N4, and the first part was hell for me, while the other two seemed pretty easy. I heard that in N5 the most difficult part was de grammar/reading one (thus, the second part).
  2. Had lunch with many friends I found at Noken. Of course, we ate Japanese food.
  3. Will be having dinner with my friends tonight.
Monday: Constitution Day in Spain. Since everything is closed, I will be working on those papers I couldn't finish while I was studying for Noken.
Tuesday: No class! Maybe going to Alcalá de Henares with my boyfriend. Staying there for 2 days.
Wednesday: Coming back home and working on those papers.
Thursday: Meeting at class to learn about our future thesis. And visiting the people in charge of the exchange program to see if there are news.
Friday: Japanese class and working on those papers.
Saturday: Going to Alcalá de Henares again with a friend. I'll be her guide for the day, then we'll go to the theatre at night.
Sunday: Expocomic!! After all this I won't have time to buy the wig so bye bye cosplay... Well, there's Japan Weekend in February...

I'm so sleepy right now. But I have to leave to meet my bf and talk about the excursion to Alcalá and a possible future trip to Ireland in January. I thought about buying some plane tickets for both of us as a Christmas present, but it's being more difficult than I thought. I found a return flight for 40€ something, but I thought I would find cheaper ones since everyone keeps telling me about how they managed to fly for 5€ or less... OK, the flight is 5€ but the taxes are so expensive... Apparently the airports with no taxes right now are Paris and Milan, so it's pretty cheap to fly there. What should I do? Should I wait to see if there is an special offer? And how do I find this special offer?
Advice, anyone?

Wow, I can't believe there are any airports with no taxes these days! *_* I hate that though, when the fare looks super cheap...until you get to the taxes. >_<

And honestly, I'm not sure if there's some special site or something that your friends know about for these cheap flights, but I'd say if you're looking for something for as soon as Christmas, most likely the deals that are going to be out there are out there already? So yeah, I'd say buy the tickets now--since they probably won't be any cheaper later. :/

I saw that on a last minute offers website, it's like a special offer only for some flights, I think. So nothing that will make any difference. Flying for me is very expensive, since Madrid's Airport has very high taxes U_U I wonder about that, since there is a price that includes taxes, then you click on book tickets, and they give you more taxes who knows why, and it's crazy... Like Ryanair, they have taxes for paying, for luggage, for administration (WTH?)...

umm, I think you are right. I'm sad it's like that though... I may have to buy those 40€ return tickets then...

The problem is that the more you wait, the expensive it will be >_<

How was the exam? The next year I would like to take N3

You think so? I will buy it next weekend. Gotta make sure there's money on my account first, and we are on holidays now...

The exam was... weird. Vocabulary is always difficult but the first mondai was so easy... the rest of them were TOO difficult, though. But after that terrible first exam, the rest of them seemed easy. Kikitori was SO easy... You could only hear it once, but it was enough

I'm thinking about taking N3 next year too. Apparently, there were lots of problems for students since it was the first time and they didn't have any grammar or kanji lists to have a guide. Kikitori was difficult for them, too.

Todo el mundo habla de esos magníficos vuelos super baratos, pero yo nunca he conseguido coger ninguno. De hecho, irme a casa en navidad me sale insultantemente caro teniendo en cuenta que vuelo con Ryanair, que me timaron a base de bien, pero como no tenía otra opción en ese momento, y para cuando la encontré ya no podía cancelar, pues me toca pagar un pico por viajar mal =_=. Espero que tú tengas más suerte.

Pensaría que es una leyenda urbana si no fuera porque conozco a tres personas que han conseguido uno...
Se aprovechan de nosotros en vacaciones, snif.
Y encima para que luego los controladores se pongan en huelga...
¿Sabes que por su culpa las tasas para volar a Barajas son de 40€ mínimo?
