the full
I think I got a full mark on today's statistics exam. Yeah!
It was easy actually... This time's full mark makes my grade three consecutive full marks for me.(OK??) I guess my having been good at math when I was high school students is still alive in me. (OK?)he-he.

There are 5 more exams and 2 papers left. Since I am going back to Japan in two weeks, I gotta finish all stuff by the day I go home and also gotta prepare for final exams. This and the week next must be a busiest week for me. Guess I gotta have a strong willpower to get through this time.

On the blight side, there are many fun things waiting for me after this semester. Until then, I am gonna focus on things just before me such as class exams or clinic assignments.



There are five exams to go!!
Just do it.

OK, I am gonna head to FOI hoping I can learn some new stuff.

bye!

got car problem
I haven't post yet, but I got my car the other day.
I must thank to my parents for allowing me to possess it.
thanks.

Since my budget was kinda limited, I bought very old car. The total amount of mileage is over 110,000 miles. In Japan, they never sell cars over 9k miles, so I worried some. I was not hoping but I had to expect that my car had some defaults which I should repair during this 2 years.

But I never thought that came yesterday. It was much much much sooner than I expected.

Just 2 weeks after I bought that car, when I was driving, I heard some weird noise and it started jolting when I tried to stop at the light.(jolt is proper for using here?? shaking or chattering is better??)

I though I got a flat tire and also the battery was getting old.
So I had no alternative but to take my car to the repair shop, and one of mechanics figured out it was just a loose tire.

That meant the left front wheel didn't stick properly because of loose bolts. That have made some weird noise and bumpity feeling (is OK bumpily)when I stepped on the brake.

He told me I almost got a serious accident if I kept driving without fixing it, because a loose tire might cause a wheel to fall off. I got scared when I heard that, but anyway I was glad to go there without hesitation. What's a relief!!


I should be careful when I am driving. The experience I got today turned out to be a good lessen for safe driving.



Japanese
お大事に(ODAIJINI)

take care of yourself!
when people are sick, you can use this term for saying "take car of yourself"

what the hell am I doin......
I have been goofing off putting new posting for a month.
Even it is short one, keeping putting new entries everyday is important and was actually the promise to myself.

At this rate, I think my English might improve less than I expected.
I know class and FOI stuff are important, but I actually broke the promise to myself that I had decided to keep a dairy everyday. What the hell am I doing....
I know it seems kinda too late, but I will start again here. That way looks better than doing nothing even after this.

Even when the time is limited, posting a single posting doesn't take so much time. If I use some time before going bed, I should be able to keep it. Complaining about time available is just a ridiculous excuse.


Don't make the same mistake again. Don't complain about time.
Just do it.

Tomorrow
There is only one more exam before the spring break! I can't wait!
Statistics. That exam covers only 5 chapters, so I will be OK for this time since I got a full mark on the last exam which covered 9 chapters. I am just afraid that the professor may ask us kinda unclear questions again. Last time, I got confused on some questions. But this time, we can use a calculator. In Japan, we don't usually use calculator even in math exam and calculate only by our hands. Since I had been calculating without it, being allowed to use it in the exam seems kinda weird to me, but I know it definitely helps me a lot.

By the way, as a matter of facts, since there are tons of stuff to be finish up even in the spring break, I guees I can get a rest on first three days. Hmmm.


I guess I gotta back to study. I hope the coffee works on me being capable to be up all night.(OK??)

Anatomy exam
I took an anatomy exam today.
I did well, but there were some questions which I could choose two out of four choice(OK?). Plus, there also were a couple of vogue questions in the true/false parts that either of answers could be correct(????). Is that I felt so just because I couldnot understand English?? or Am I true there were some bad questions??

Anyway, I guess I gotta ask the professor in the next class. I am sure some people who took that exam are gonna complain about the ambiguity of those questions(Is ther better way to express here??)


Before I restart studying, I am gonna take a nap.
I just can't wait a spring break!!

here crucial point's come
An anatomy exam is coming up soon! As usual, I have spent much time reviewing clinic stuff, so I am not ready for the exam yet, but I probally can handle this exam if I have strong will. The important part begins from now. This means that it's important to use my time efficiently so I can get through this week without any problem.
I guess the point where I get sleepy is the moment of truth(Does this sentence make sense??)


Hey, my sweet spring break, wait a little bit for me!

taka

How do you say "important point" in other word?
crucial period //?
crucial point // ?
hard part //?
real part?
the moment of truth?



Japanese

終わったー(OWATTA-(hold out the last letter))
That means you just finished up something big like your report which you have been working for a week.

weekend!!
Finally weekend is coming!!
I can rest my brain and my body for a little bit.
But actually by body are getting out of shape, so I am thinking to work out sometime in this weekend like resistance training or some Circuit training.

I hope my body gets back to high-school day's level. If I do say so myself, I had a good built when I had seriously played baseball.(Is OK?) But after being in college in Japan, especially after start drinking alcohols with my buddies, my body has been in decline (been decreasing? Been on a decline? How do you say here to make more sense??). What a wistful I am! (Natural to say??) I am still 23 and should have more muscular back and arms.

Anyway, since I came to United States that sometimes is called Sports power, I would like to start another new sports like tennis or golf which I can play with small number of people unlike baseball. I love it but it need at least 18 people to take place the game, so it's kind of difficult to take place the game or even just practicing. So I decided to challenge new sports! Tennis would be great. Golf also has attractions(is natural??), but playing it costs a little more than playing tennis. Well, I am hard to choose between the two now. Let's play both and chose after that!


Oh, I know there is no time to think about such a stupid stuff like the kind of sports I have never done yet. I just can try both! ha-ha. Anyway, I will try sometime in the near future. But now, I have to focus more on my assignments which are piled up ahead of me like a mountain....




Japanese
Hon wo yondeimasu
I am reading a book.

can you see the different from just saying "Hon wo yomimasu" it is present progressive form.
you can use anytime.



捨て難い
have one's attractions どちらも捨て難い
be hard to choose between the two

衰退の道をたどって
in decline

自分で言うのもなんだけど
If I (do) say so myself
自分で言うのもなんだけど日本で最高の芸術家なんだ。
