Adrienne-sensei, I love you~♥  
I love one of my professors at McGill dearly and adore her so hearts

One of my East Asian professors and I were discussing about how I did subtitling for another East Asian professor of mine and she thought that it was so cool that I could do fansubbing. When I told her that I fansubbed Arashi variety shows, she answered with "Arashi? I know them! Even in my old age, I know of them! You fansub one of their variety shows? Awesome!"

I think I mentioned that I still loved doing it despite it being illegal to do so and she replied "legal smegal". She mentioned it was a really good way to build up my Japanese vocabulary and mentioned that I should go to Japan if I ever get the chance.

To which I informed her that I really wanted to go there but my grades where nowhere high enough to be allowed to go as an exchange student and now I would no longer be eligible since this is my last year at the university.

She enthusiastically said there were many opportunities that I could go to Japan and it didn't have to be solely based on grades. She explained that she would do everything in her power to get me to go to Japan if I truly wished to go there !!

My jaw dropped and for the first time ever, I felt completely happy and euphoric at the prospect of being able to go to Japan. We'll be discussing details and to what kind of programs I could join, but the dream of going to Japan is so much closer with the aide of this magnificient professor of mine arrowup

I think if I had told any of my lecturer of my Arashi obsession, they'd look at me like I'm some weirdo. One of my ex-lecturers do know I'm into Japanese shows but they don't know the extent of it so I'm safe, hehe.

You are so lucky to have such a good and sporting professor!!! What does she lecture?

I was shocked that she knew about them too. At first she misheard me, but when I repeated it, she recognized the name right away~

She's lecturing classes about Japan. I initially took her as an introduction to Japan course, now I'm taking her for a class labelled as "Japan in Asia" where we focus on different issues about Japan.

Ahhh. Maybe that's why she knew them! What degree exactly are you taking again?
[identity profile] corlee1289.livejournal.com on September 10th, 2012 04:02 pm (UTC)
Perhaps? At least that's what I'm hoping so X3

My bachelor's degree in a double major of psychology and east asian studies :3

Ahh... I remembered that you were majoring in psychology and was a little confused as to why and how you had an east asian professor XD

How many years more do you need to graduate?

I'll be graduating next semester <3

KYAAAA~!! *absorbes all the good vibes*

She's one of the rare professors who I feel that I can truly bond with and talk about everything and anything with her about. So when she heard that I had desired to go, she said she'd do everything in her power to help me go there.

What a lovely person! My profs would go o_O if I told them, even some of my classmates think I'm weird, because almost all of them are into visual kei, and dress up like that...I think I'm too ordinary to study Japanese Culture. :D You will do it, I'm sure!!! PS: Your letter is still in the making -_- Gomen ne.

Visual-kei? Hmm... Not my thing really.

No rush in sending me a letter~! As long as you got my letter safely, I thought it got mailed somewhere else accidentally :3

I'd do anything to have a person who I see everyday understand my japanese obsession.
I hope your wish will come true! That's one awesome professor.

I'm desperately hoping so too!!
