I went to a reunion party of my university. It was a tenth anniversary since our graduation. I met many people there. I can't remember some people well even now, but it brought back many memories. I felt somewhat nostalgic.

Next party will be held in five years. I'm looking forward to meeting them again!

Difficulty is

Difficulty is, for the most part, the daughter of idleness.

- Samuel Johnson

Yew, that's true. But it's also true that getting over idleness is very difficult. So I should try hard to conquer it.

Life's failure

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

- Thomas A.Edison

I was encouraged by this words. When I give up, I can get nothing. But if I do not give up, I might be able to get something important.

Now I'm in a very severe situation. My TOEFL score is still below my goal. And the application deadlines are getting closer. Every day I feel much anxiety.

Sometimes I feel that I want to run away from this situation, although I hate to think like that.

I think it is very important time for me. All I have to do is keep trying hard until I reach to success.

Because of the typhoon, trains didn't move in the morning yesterday. So I had to ride on buses to reach my office. It took one more hour than usual.

Japan has a lot of natural disaster, such as earthquakes, typhoons, and so on. One of my co-worker from China is surprised at these disasters. According to him, Beijing doesn't suffer earthquakes or typhoons.

In that sense, this is Japan.

Fighters clinch Pacific League Title

My favorite baseball team, Fighters finally clinched Pacific League Title of 2009 on October 6. This is the third time in four years. I'm very excited with the result. Before the opening game of this year, Fighters was said to be fifth rank in six teams. It was sure that Fighters has fewer star players. But the result is quite different. Fighters got Pacific League Title.

Game does not end. Climax series, which means play-off, starts soon before Japan Series. I believe Fighters will won again.

The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes

Her speech is simple and nothing special, but powerful enough to persuade us.

Which is the image of my future?

It is sure that I'd like to have brighter one. No one want a future like an arid land.
However, it is true that there are many obstacles in front of us to get a bright future. Someone might deceive me. Or I might make some mistakes. Or I might become serious sick. In that sense, I can't predict my future correctly.

Still, I want to have a bright future. To achieve this, what should I do? First, I should make a goal clearly. And then, I should plan what to do. That must be a tough way. But it's worth a try. In other words, without trying, I will regret it.
