Wow! This is it! School is over!!
I cannot believe that was it... it was really quick...well...what surprises me most is the fact that I miss my classmates in ESL class and business class! I never thought we would create the BOND that we have right now cause we only had 6 weeks and the class was not even everyday thing. I'm so glad I have met people in college. I think I'm doing pretty well making new friends here thanks to school! Yep I was right lol Connecting with new people from different categories is one of the purpose of college instead of language school or dance studios.
So... what did I learn?
It's a tough question, isn't it?
I learned a lot! First of all, class was hard... oh my god it was very difficult man!! ESL freaked me out surprisingly because I was going to take English but my assessment test score was not good enough to take English so I kinda had to take ESL, but I was like it is still English as Second Language class, it's gonna be a piece of cake for me! Well, no hell no. We had tons of homework every single day, it took me a lot of time at home, writing essays was not even about the language skill in English any more, it was more about philosophy... you know? The process of reading articles about which I barely read and write an essay about it was the hardest part but fun at the same time. It started letting my brain that was frozen for this couple of years move... I loved thinking about the world from different angles. There are so many people who are trying to make the better world by doing something even a little. I love that. Their writing is like super organized that I have no idea how ( that's why you are learning Saya!) and I love how beautiful they tell people story! They are trying to TELL and they are doing it. Oh I wanna be the one who tells people what I think or do or believe. I wanna be the one! To do this, I need to let people know what I am doing oh wow it was on the book in business class too... all related. okay anyway, what else?
HARD WORK PAYS OFF
I got 100 on the very last test in the class. I almost cried lol cause my first test was like 70 hahahaha. It is so cool when you actually realize "hard work pays off moment" It feels like dream at first but it is real and it feels AMAZING!
In business class, I really didn't learn about business honestly... the teacher was cool enough to teach us "how to live" through the class.
SAY WHAT YOU MEAN
MEAN WHAT YOU SAY
People may hate you but they will respect you
Stay on your ground
You gotta be clear folk
Can you deliver what you are trying to pay?
Intelligent never lets you go
These are the notes that I took in the class. I was not a smart student and I barely raised my hand just because I just didn't get the whole class...well let's say the half... but I was listening to her. What she says is always clear and she means it obviously. What I loved most about the class was that she talks about kind of philosophy... that was literally LEARNING...
She told us that we all have responsibility for anything we do. This is too obvious but people sometimes do forget it and then do some stupid stuff. I am the one who pushes me and I am the one who stops me. I am in charge of myself and all people deserve to live their life. It does not matter what I do but I should always know why I do it.
I have no idea how she lived, what made her so strong but she is super beautiful inside and out and I am so glad to take her class in my first semester in SMC. (Even tho I almost failed this class lol)
初めてのセメスターのくせに、もうやりたいことありすぎて、全部取っちゃえってなって、取ってみてん。夏学期って短期間だから授業のスピードが通常の3倍くらい速くて、時間は長くて宿題は山ほどでほんまに学校に集中しないとついていけへんレベルやった。いや、まず誰か言って？夏学期はしんどいでって。（笑）I think I am the only one who took 3 classes in summer lol and that was my first semeter in SMC this is way too crazy...
自分が男女平等って感じられてる世の中で生きてるのって特別なことやねんな。 I mean 男女ってもう二つの違うもんやしほんまにほんまに男女平等っていうのは難しいけど、少なくとも私が生きてきた中で、そんなに女だからってって言われて育ってきてなくて今の環境とか今自分が世の中を考える目線、考え方があるのって素晴らしいことなんやって思った。何もかも、当たり前って言葉がほんまに難しい。
People may hate you but they will respect you っていうビジネスの先生が言ってた言葉が脳裏で蘇ってはっとした。こんなところでも。なんでも繋がってるわ。嬉しいな。なんか学んだことを活かしてるって自分自身でわかった時。そやねん。その瞬間やねん。最高に気持ちがいいのって。頑張った後の予想以上の結果を知った、その瞬間ってもう何にも変えられへんよね。うん。無理。最高。
