Busy, but fun. 忙しいけど、楽しい。

"Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all that he can."
「男は自分の果たせる以上の任務を引き受けない限り、全力を出す事は出来ない。」

From the two famous quotes above (ha ha), you may have guessed that I am in a pretty busy stretch right now! From a scientific perspective, I'm writing up an article as we speak. As for the MBA, all the exams, homeworks, group works, etc. are making my head spin. To top it off, I got elected into the Student Council, so there's work, too. Lot's of fun though. And this weekend, I'll be volunteering as an interpretor (Japanese/English/Spanish/Chinese) at the International Karate Championships, at the Nippon Budokan. Exciting! And as for my band RaiA we went into the studio last Saturday to record a song, so this weekend will be the mixing part. We've got concerts lined up for the fall also.

And the BIGGEST NEWS of all!!!! I got a call from my great buddy Greg just before I went into the studio on Sat, telling me that his wife is PREGNANT!!!!!

"Félicitations champion! Ah que je suis content pour toi et Elsy!"

Funny thing. The song we went in to record is called "Beautiful life", and it's inspired by our bassman's 3 yr-old daughter. She's the cutest thing. See photo at the bottom. Maybe our song can be Greg's kid's song, too!

So my dear readers, please spread some sunshine, even if it's for someone you don't know, and write in a little nice comment for Greg and Elsy!

Well, all in all, if this is not living life to its fullest, it's pretty much the best I can do.

上記の名言(ニョホホ)からもうお分かりだと思いますが。。。ヤバいぞ、この忙しさ!取りあえず、本職の方は論文書いているでしょう。MBAの方も試験、宿題、グループワークなで目眩がするでしょう。つうか、選挙でクラスのコミッティーにも選ばれちゃったので、そちらもまたいろいろと大変やわ。楽しいけどね。そして、今週末は日本武道館で空手の糸東流世界大会で通訳のボランティア(日、英、西、中)。これも面白そう。んで、バンドのRaiAも先週末レコーディングしたので、今週末はミックシングする。そろそろライブもあるし。

そうそう、週末にカナダの大親友のグレッグから電話あり。奥さん妊娠だって!!!メッチャ嬉しい。おめでとう!

面白い事に、週末レコーディングした曲は"Beautiful Life"と言って、ベースマンの娘がインスピレーションなの。メチャメチャ可愛い子だよ。写真見てみん。みんなも是非祝福のコメントを入れてあげてください!日本語でも良いです!責任を持って、翻訳しておきま〜す。

うん。充実。
