The other taketh away...
I commented to some friends the other day that in doing the reading for my Arch class I was pleased and amazed at my ability to comprehend Arch subjects that previously bored or baffled me.
However, this apparently has shut down the part of my brain related to processing Japanese. I have spent the last 2 hours studying for my 8:00 am final and realized I had read the same damn sentence three times and still couldn't figure out what it meant... even after reading the helpful translation at the bottom of the page.
I think I will stop, get up early and study some more before the test. Hopefully retain something.
