practicing my golf swing!
Today, I met Taka-san who is younger bro of Masahiro. Actually, he is about being professional golf player in Japan. He is gonna challenge a pro-test to be a pro officially in a month.

I told him that I got an used golf set and asked him to show me how to swing properly. You know, I used to play baseball, so I had some confidence in golf swing because the way of swing was much like the way in baseball. But, right after he started coaching me, I realized that was absolutely wrong. Even though, there were some similar points, the way of golf swing was totally different from baseball's, and much more difficult.

And it is said that people who start playing golf without any instruction of proper person would develop the wrong swing and it would prevent people from improving the skill in many ways(is this sentence OK?). On the other hand, people who are taught properly are said to make faster progress. And I've heard that people tend to be the former.

This morning, I felt sore somehow. How come?? I just did less than 50 swings and, when I swing a baseball bat, I've never experienced such type of sore after only 50 swings. I guess that's because I used totally different muscle groups to make proper swings.

Anyway, I was glad that Taka-san showed me a proper golf swing.
By the way, even though he is not a pro yet, his attitude toward keeping his own physical conditions and inquisitive minds for his improving skills are exactly like professional.(OK?) He is just one year older than me, but has got the attitude down pat.(is this natural?) I admire that kind of person like him. I hope he will succeed in the near future! I advised some tips about nutrition stuff and how to keep his body shape in. I hope that advice helps him.

By the way,
I just can't wait playing in the course!!!!

wait a second!
give me a break!
in this case, you can just say "MATTE!"

this word is useful and you can use it in many situations.

What kind of attitude is that?

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....

I thought over it
When I look back in February, I have moments of reflection.
I should've focus more on FOI study. To do so, I should've kept studying school stuff everyday, not just before exams. (Does make sense? Is natural?) I thought I had done well, but I was wrong because it surely is true that there were tons of tons of time I had wasted watching TV, or just sleeping on the desk.

To get closer to my goals for which I set at the beginning of February, I need to change my spoiled mind. Don't just say "I got tired or there is no time to study today". Just do it.
By doing so, I am sure my knowledge and skills would improve more than I got in February.(Is OK??)

※Does it make sense the sentence "I deeply thought over my life style in the last month "??
Does "Think over" means something you are regretting??

HONE WO YOMIMASU= to read the book.

try this!

Class has been cancelled!!
Anatomy class has been cancelled!! Lucky me!
Due to this cancellation, the number of chapters which was going to be on next exam got short. (Is this sentence OK?)Yeah!!. Because it was going to cover more than hundred pages, even though it's got shorter, it's still big deal for me though. (Do you know more natural to express here??)

Anyway, I was really glad to hear that!!

Today is the last day of February. Times went by so fast just like the light. I guess I need to put value even on just one second.

There is only 3 month left to study at USF. It's not so long till I move to another state. I wish I could study more, but I've got no choice but to go Arkansas to get closer to my objective. Anyway, the only thing I can do just now is that to use my time for improving all skills which will be needed in the grad school. (OK?)

I will do my best on(in) March too!!

just finished!
I just came back from the class.
I took an exam for Prevention and Care for athletic injuries.

All in all, I guess I could answer most questions, but there were a few vogue questions which didn't make sense for me. Is that I felt so due to just my ignorance? Or the questions were not appropriate??
Anyway, I guess I gotta review for that part. There were many new terms I have never seen on the exam.

While I am gonna review them, I will take tons of new terms root in my brain (Is natural to say??)

Besides, internship stuff are getting in full swing. I need more and more knowledge to catch up with Mike and to get one step closer to my objectives.

First, I am thinking to start making notes so that I can keep records or look up more details about each patient's disorders or conditions lately.(is OK?)

Oh, I wanna eat Michi's cooking. It's been a while since I ate hers last. Her cooking is just like a pro. I wish they suddenly came up on my table now!! ぶた

When you answer the phone, you can say "MOSHIMOSHI" just like "hello" in English. Try next time. Don't be shy for using this. It's absolutely natural to say so.

That is pretty hardcore

Red Sox's spring training!
I went to Fort Myers to see Red Sox's Spring Training with Katsu.
We spent a great time. Unfortunantely, I don't have enough time to write details because another exam is coming soon!!
Actually, it's tomorrow...

I would like to write about many details like what I saw and what I felt about that spring training later.

One thing I want to mention on this posting is Fort Myers was not so far. I mean the place where Red Sox are doing the practice was much close to Tampa than I thought. My friend told me it was(is??) supposed to take more than three hours at least to go there, but in reality, it took only 2 hours from our apartment by his car.

I just thought living in Tampa has great opportunities to see many teams which are taking place spring trainig othre than Red Sox in Florida state. I will take advantage of living here and will go to see many famous players!!

Oh, before doing that, I gotta start preparing for an exam right now!!

can't wait
I am going to Fort Myers to see Red Sox's spring training. This year, more than five Japanese professional players have come to play in MLB.
One of them is DAISUKE, the best player in Japan. He and another Japanese player are taking part in spring training at Fort Myers this year. I am sure they are all world-class baseball players and are gonna do well even in MLB, the best baseball league in the world. Their skills and sprits are evident in the fact that Japan got the first prize in WBC (world baseball classic)(Is this sentence natural?)
So, me and Katsu are going there to see them.

I just can't wait!!
I guess I should take my gloves just in case I can get his autograph.
