i'm good!

Practice makes perfect...

Unless you're in Chem II. Then, it just makes your brain hurt. James and I have been plugging away at this stuff, and the farther we go on this practice test, the more convinced we are we are going to fail. Ah well, I have all night and most of first exam block tomorrow to study...

I used to really like chemistry. I guess, in part, I still do, otherwise I wouldn't put up with this nearly as long as I have. When I have a lab to do, usually, it's fun, and even better when I get super sexy data , like I did the other day. But tests...ugh, such a pain in the ass. Mrs. Holmberg knows I understand the material, that usually I'm just making stupid mathmatical mistakes...but that doesn't make my grade any better. Oh well, back to work...the panic won't hit me til about 11 tonight anyway...

Beautiful Alone...

This is my favorite ballad, Japanese or otherwise. The English translation doesn't really do it justice, nor do just the bare words. The chorus has been my AIM profile many times...and now, listening to it, I feel like posting it. It's both happy and sad, and while the sadness seems to overcome it at times, it remains unregretful. In the end, it's just a very good song.

anata to boku to no sabishisa wo
kasaneru you ni shite kuchizukeru
futari ga itameta kizuato ga
utsukushii wakare wo tsugeru darou

Your and my loneliness
Presses heavily like a kiss
The scars of being together
Tells us of a beautiful parting.

anata to boku to no kanashimi wo
itawari-au you ni dakishimeru
futari ga nozoita omoide ga
utsukushii kodoku wo egaku darou

Your and my sadness
Hurts like a tight embrace
And the memories of us together
Paint a beautiful loneliness
