Late last night, I was able to translate the Japanese on the CD for "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots". I'd been able to get bits and pieces, but with my dictionary in hand, I was able to translate the kanji I didn't know before.
It says, "Kimi wa ichiban utsukushii kao o shite iru," which would translate approximately to "You have the most beautiful face."
It wasn't that the teacher had singled me out as smart, really, or told me my skills would get me a job that made me so happy. What I think it really was is that something I truly enjoy learning will be there to help me out along the way. Despite the struggles, I do so love the language.
And, once again it seems, "Do You Realize," helps me feel better, heh.
Now, off to class.
