So yesterday was my Chinese test. And I really meant to study! I even stayed at uni for the 3 hours between my classes and my test… but it was not meant to be. Luckily my friend 爱马 was with me too, so we procrastinated together. We ate yummy wedges and she asked me how to make an origami crane, so I showed her, and I think that’s the reason why when I got home tonight all I wanted to do was fold cranes. So after bf’s delicious dinner I sat on his bed and watched the Top Chef final, and then Terminator 3 (for lack of anything better) and the news. I at least got a little bit done before I got too tired 😛
Also- Yuka e-mailed me back and I was right about “せんばづる”! “Senbazuru” (or 千羽鶴 in kanji) means 1,000 cranes in Japanese.
I think I worked out that last night I folded 27.5 cranes, found an extra 3 and then wrote 80 sheets of paper (from the Psalms, e.g. 145, 146). So after last night, here’s my
- I still have 7 strings hanging on my wall (280 cranes)
- I now have 83 cranes lying on the shelf made, but not strung
- 80 squares written on, ready to be folded
- 1 set of papers ready to be written on
