'em Farmer's are Busy

Well I (Brad) thought that considering there hasn't been an update in awhile, and the farmer's are super busy with all that farming stuff, I'd fill people in on what I am doing. It may not be farm related, but perhaps it will fill the void between farm news.

I got back mid-April from my trip out west to spend time with my folks and bro, and whoever else was nearby. It was a nice but long four months, and i felt the urge to get back into school.

I researched how long my degree was going to take to complete and how i could get into the education department of UNB. I have discovered that by July of '09 i will be done my CS degree if i take classes straight through from now till then, so that is what i am doing. Sadly, i also discovered that the UNB education faculty hates Computer Science students and told me i would have to take an additional years worth of courses to be even eligible for their program, which i didn't like hearing. Luckily there are many options. So for now completing my CS degree with as high grades as possible is my priority; hence, my current station as Non-Farmer.

I am living in Fredericton, and taking one course at the moment: Japanese. So far it is going great i have learnt part of the writing system, and am on my way to being able to greet and ask questions in Japanese. So far so good, and watching ridiculously amounts of Japanese Anime probably doesn't hinder my learning.

The flooding was crazy in Fredericton, there were people kayaking and canoing down streets in some parts of town. I helped Tony and Lori (Kath's Sister and Brother-in-law) and their neighbours, relocate some of their basement contents to a less risky location. The left their house for a couple of weeks and stayed in a hotel, i believe they are planning to get back home before the weekend.

I hope to visit the Farm, Luke, Kath, Mike and Bailey as much as possible through the summer and i hope i get to see some of the visitors we are expecting, but we'll see how the summer goes. So far things are going great, and i hope the same for everyone else!

I am not quite good enough to know all of what you said, i have learned how to write Hiragana and Katakana, we are actually starting to learn to speak more now, but in the second semester of it i expect to learn more, but i will not be taking that for a few semesters (it doesn't fit till then).

Watashi no namae wa Buraddo desu. :P
I would definitely like to practice.
