Arrived in SF at about 5:00 this morning. I figured I would go home and then sleep until 9:00. In the end, we sat at a random gate at the airport for 2 hours until my uncle picked us up. It was already 8:15 by the time we got home, so I thought I might as well stay up.
I thought I’d have hot chocolate for breakfast. But there was no milk. :|
I’m so mad I can’t connect to the Internet wirelessly! I brought my Nook for nothing. I can’t visit/browse stuff I usually do because I’m on my dad’s computer.. It’s bad enough having my parents walk by while I’m going through the pages of my dashboard. >.>; At home, I’m always on the look out for new music on my dashboard, but it’s kind of rare. Now that I’m away, it’s all over my dash!
Anyway, today we walked to the beach and around.. My dad and siblings rented a peddle boat & kayak for a while. I just sat around watching passers-by. I was totally doing my Calculus homework on the beach. B] I walked by a sign with Japanese translations. The one for “ice cream” was something weird I didn’t recognize. o.o
After school, the buildings were quiet and somehow chilly. Sometimes the opening and closing sound of some classroom’s door resounded hollowly in the empty hallways. Someone was playing Chopin’s Polonaise on the auditorium’s piano. Yoshiyama Kazuko, a third-year, along with Fukamachi Kazuo and Asakura Gorou of the same class, finished cleaning the science classroom.
"It’s all right. I’ll take out the trash, so you guys go wash your hands."
Kazuo and Gorou went to the washroom. Comparing their retreating figures, Kazuko seemed to laugh. Their combination was actually funny. Kazuo was tall and skinny. Gorou was short and plump. Both of them were studious, but Gorou was a hard worker and guileless, if anything. On the other hand, Kazuo was a dreamer. He looked absent-minded and you couldn’t tell what he was thinking. There were times when you could feel the unpleasantness.
While they were washing their hands in the restroom, Gorou looked up at Kazuo.
This is my super rough translation of the first page from The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I was confused about the tenses because the beginning seems to be present tense? But most of it seems to be past tense, so I went by that. “Science classroom” might be too literal a translation. It sounds kind of unnatural?
I finally got a haircut! I sat in the salon for what felt like hours, with nothing to do but go over the few flashcards I grabbed on the way out.
I went to my cousin’s birthday party and ate a load of food for lunch. We didn’t stay long because my brother wanted to go buy water shoes & a rash guard. Went to Great Mall, then the library, medicine store, and then home.
I’m most likely going to regret not doing more homework today. I won’t be home until next Saturday/Sunday. Trying to finish the calculator part of Calc homework right now. I think I might end up not doing my Chinese homework at all. >.>;
One of my favorite UVERworld songs. Somebody finally translated it! It’s not too bad, at least better than what I can do. (And look! I reblogged myself! :D )
It’s so hard to say the true feelings in our hearts And I don’t know how to say it right today Let’s talk like this just a little today
I lived my life on full, if I look back, there is nothing If I’ve lost money, but had songs, it’s still good
Not many go forward as they please
While moving forward, some days I seriously thought “Maybe, it’s useless…” "Quitting is useless" it’s for the fools There are not only good people in the world You can truly collide, meeting a new member We share our foolish dreams with more friends Now, when I look back, I think how grateful I am
To put it ideally, I love to be alive I said in the interview "I live with a lot of belief in myself" that’s what was said
While moving forward, some days I seriously thought “Maybe, it’s useless…” Even when everything was falling apart "Once again, laugh with this member" was said It seems I have realized that it’s not scary to lose anything When I look back, thick clouds have passed and I am grateful for it
Though it took me a while, I made a detour, suffering Every day we spent together I have to say, there was nothing bad
Even saying that life is full of shit (?) It seems like I would like to be honest Everyone can find someone to love Laughing with everyone “Life is good”!
I hate the order of things, I understood, it’s good if I’m the only one Like a man, aiming for the top, recklessly chasing a dream Smiling and laughing
I don’t know it but sometimes only I can understand Ask the old me “When was your youth?” I will gladly talk about it When I look back, I am grateful for everything
In the back of my head I’m beginning to stress about the Macbeth performance for Voss because my group and I haven’t figured out which scene we’re going to do. It’s due the Monday we get back from break, and I will be gone the whole time (which makes me think of all the other homework I have to do too!). It seems my group members want to come up with ideas individually and then meet next Thursday to synthesize. Agghhh, isn’t Thursday a little late?! Why can’t we just decide everything beforehand and work on memorizing & acting during the break?
Voss introduced sonnets today. We’re going to have to write one.. Is this to make us appreciate poems and the English language? ‘Cause after Voss listed all the “rules” of writing sonnets, I can already call Shakespeare a friggin’ genius! >:| Rhyme schemes made me think of Jay Chou… >.>;
”Quitter” was harsh, and I didn’t really mean it. I feel bad about it now because everyone’s entitled to his/her own opinions, and I do understand how they feel. I just didn’t like that they were, based on their own “hatred,” discouraging someone from taking Japanese merely because of Sensei. I think many people would agree that J1 is enjoyable.
Almond milk tea didn’t last long enough. I wasn’t sitting in front of the tv this time, but I was still distracted by the dialogue. Went to Target and bought the paper trimmer I saw on Monday. They didn’t restock, but I was being impatient and decided to buy the last one on the shelf. It’s hot pink. .__. Lots of things were on clearance, including a 4-pack of Jetstreams! :O It was $4.40, which means each one was only $1.10! I was very tempted, but the trimmer was already like $17 and I didn’t want to spend any more.. Plus they were 1.0 mm, and I prefer 0.7 mm.
I was supposed to be studying for tomorrow’s Calc test during tutoring, but Anh brought this big, beautiful book about the human brain…! I was too distracted.
OMG I have a freaking hole in my foot—I hope I can walk tomorrow. T_T
