気分は超大切だ

Testosteroneさんのツイートの中からRDのNo.1を勝手に英訳(Native check済み)

一緒にいて気分の悪くなるやつとは関わるな。気分は超大切だ。気分よくすごすのが人生の目的と言っても過言ではない。ヒトは良い気分になるためにお金を払って物を買ったり旅行したりする。良い気分を買っているのだ。良い気分を害してくるやつは堂々と君の財布から金を抜き取っているのも同然。あり得ないっしょ?

Don’t be concerned if you feel bad when you're with a certain person. Our feelings are extremely important. It’s not too much to say that our purpose in life is to be happy. People buy things and travel to feel good. In other words, we are buying good feelings. People who harm our feelings are the equivalent to thieves stealing money from our purses, with their heads held high.

I Shake My Head!!!

A Moment of Happiness

A Moment of Happiness

It is needless to say that everyone wants to feel happy, but many of us encounter hardship or struggles that have no obvious solutions. My own mother battled against one of the most terrible diseases, battling ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Yet even with such an miserable condition, she still had many moments of happiness. Although they might have been simple pleasures, I believe that she enjoyed and appreciated every moment of joy. 

How can we feel happiness when we are deeply depressed? 
I think there are many fleeting moments when we are happy, but we take them for granted in our daily life. If you know what they are, the answer to the question is easy. You just need to recognize your simple pleasures for what they are. 

In my case, I feel happy gazing at the ocean from a mountain, surrounded by a landscape of flowers. It feels as if I am in a heaven. Better still is if I am with my children and grab a bite, something delicious. I also feel happy when I listen to my favorite classical music, most especially Elgar's 'Enigma Variations'. The music soothes me and encourages me to tackle whatever ordeals I may be facing. These things satisfy all five senses for me, which may be the reason why they give me such a feeling of exhilaration. 

Furthermore and most importantly, I feel happy when I do something positive for others. We human beings share the same world, at the same point in history. We are all born to help each other connect with the next generation. 

When my days are numbered, these simple things are I want to do, to end my life with the greatest happiness and appreciation that I can achieve.

It's been a longstanding issue

長---いこと解決できずにいるんだよね~
て、上手く言えずにいたら、

It's been a longstanding issue/problem.って言えばいいのよって、Native B先生

problemだと深刻な問題である感があるから、実験後の片付けが出来ない教員と学生のことならissueとのこと

何度注意してもダメなので(特に隣の研究室の教員が。。。溜息)、「実験後は机の上に試薬を放置しないこと」など、ドアに張り紙をすることにしました。

これで守ってくれると良いのですが。。。

Trust is everything

1年に1回ペースの更新ゆえ、このブログの読者は殆ど消滅も、ときどき辿り着いてくる人がいるようです。
「人生悪いことばかりじゃない」の検索で辿り着くことが一番多いので、エッセイを書いてみました。

英文はnative check済みです。


Many people experience the agony of losing that trust at least once in life.

As I am quite gullible, I have experienced this many times in my life. The most recent occasion has been so tough that I've hardly been able to recover from it.

 

I believe people can be stronger every time they overcome a problem or difficulty, and they will be careful not to have the same bad experience again in the future.

 

Now I strongly feel that trust is everything. It is like a string that connects two people. If the string is durable enough, like wire, lots of flags can be hung on the string. The flags may represent appreciation, admiration, friendship and love. The greater the number of flags that are added, the more and more colorful and beautiful it becomes. However, once one loses trust, the string breaks and the flags fall down, so that in the end, nothing remains.

 

How can people who have endured a loss of trust get a shiny new light in their life again?

The best way is to forget the agony and forgive the one who betrayed you. Then move on to better things in your life. You have to remember it is not 100% the other’s fault. It is partly due to your own weaknesses, carelessness or plain stupidity. With this in mind, you may be able to forgive the other person.

We all know it is very difficult, but it is worth it to try. There is always someone who can listen to your problems. Talking to somebody, or writing it on your blog might help alleviate the pain. This is what I am actually doing now.

 

I feel that now I can move on to the next chapter of my life, which should be happier than before.

5年半ぶりでしたね

昨日、メッセージを頂いたxxさん、有難うございました~
お元気ですか~
私は老体に鞭を打って何とか頑張っています。
xxさんも、お体を大事にして活躍されてくださいね。

そ、し、て、
昨日はブログで知り合ったTさんと5年半ぶりの再会
Tさんは私が今いる国立大学医学部出身で、アメリカ留学から帰国後は同じ県の別の大学の講師のポジションに着かれたところまでは知っていたのですが。。。
年末の研究会にて、Tさんのいる大学の医師が私の次に講演されたことから、懇親会でTさんのことを思い出し、聞いてみたら准教授になられたとのこと。

昨日の話では2年後ぐらいには教授になられる勢いで研究も教育も臨床も頑張っていらっしゃいましたー凄い!!!

私は???
全然ダメダメだなあ
去年より人事凍結(昇給なし、教授が定年で辞めても補充なし)となり、准教授のままでやる気も失せるのですが、別の手段にて目指しています。

英語の話、研究の話、授業の話、科研費の話などなど、あっという間の3時間でした。
共通の先生だったWや、彼女のレッスンを3人で一緒にを受けたことのある(アメリカ留学中だった医師の)Kさん、ブログに良く訪ねてくれたアメリカ定住のMさんなど、どうしてるかな~って。。。

やる気が少し回復したので、今年も頑張ります!!!
