Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I found out today that I won't have a Russian final, even though Zhenia told us that the past three days' tests wouldn't count for anything unless we did very well. Wheee! Okay, then, I have two finals, a week apart. This I can handle better!

Today's test included questions in the form "blah blah blah ______ blah blah blah," where I had to choose the conjunction multiple-choice style. One set contained the choice between "therefore" or "because." Is Pavel a good friend because he loves everybody, or does Pavel love everybody because he's a good friend?
