New year, new nuance, new ornaments in the room..
I presented myself these three cute lucky cat charms from Kyoto.
Fr left to right..
幸福 （koufuku – happiness)
成功 （seikou – success)
金運 （kinun – economic fortune)
I wanna extend those languages of luck to you all!
Year 2009 had been overally good despite of some upset experiences.. Failed in JLPT, failed to get paper accepted for Spain, failed to secure job, failed tuition fee exemption..
Hey, but I shouldn’t have complained, it’s common for those small failures..
Having come through the other side, I learnt a lot of lessons from those failures, and getting my paper accepted after 2nd try, good friends around.. I also realized that I’d travelled quite much in 2009.
4 Osaka trips, 3 Kyoto trips, 1 trip each for Indonesia and Shanghai.
And now I can picture the result of the efforts I’ve put in 2009.
The job.. The wish to invite my parents to Japan.. Let’s race in 2010, make it a wonderful year to come!
15 days to defense..
63 days to my parents’ visit, hopefully..
64 days to graduation ceremony, hopefully..
