I remember the first thing I did this year was going to Tsubaki Shrine. It was a request I made to Max and I was very happy he agreed to take me there. It was almost an hour drive away from home. For once I felt like I was taking a trip with Max somewhere. When we got there, it was very icy and cold. Since it was up in the mountains, it was quite difficult to park but we managed to make it.

New Years has always been my favorite time of the year. It feels like a fresh start. The time of the year where you get another chance. Its a gift from the sky that if you ever wanted to start something all over again, this is a good time to do it. At the shrine, I made a wish. It was a rather simple wish and I’m glad I was able to make it come true.

So much has happened this year; I started going to school at the University of Washington, I failed a class miserably for the first time, I started making more friends in college, there is a place in college that I feel like I belong, my sister moving to China, *cough* I was suppose to get to go to a real concert for the first time too!! (but that didn’t happen .-.) I wonder what 2012 is going to be like. I am actually quite excited for New Years day itself. I’ll be spending with Max of course ^ ^

and.. I thought I’d share a song I’ve been in love with lately. 聞いて下さい、カブトムシ – aiko .

 

translation from Jpopasia

My body’s hot with worry and my fingertips are cold enough to freeze
“Just tell me what’s wrong already,” you say to me, but I’m so weak
You’ll die and leave me and I’ll grow older and older
It’s hard to imagine, yes, how important the present is over anything else…

This merry-go-round has lost its speed
The white horse’s mane sways in the wind

You’re a little taller so I rested my forehead on your ear
I’m a beetle that’s been drawn toward a sweet smell
Falling stars fall and there’s a bittersweet pain in my heart
I’ll never forget it for as long as I live
I’ll never forget it for as long as I live

Spring tickles my nose and the blue sky of summer stands tall
Autumn’s wind blows through my sleeves, yes, and winter passes beside me
If all the powerfully sad things are left to remain in my heart
Then they’ll also mark the time I spent with you
Yes, and I’ll probably think happily of them

I hold my breath and my long eyelashes are fluttering before my eyes

It’s a small habit of mine to turn my ear toward the sound of your voice
I’m a beetle that’s become intoxicated with a deep tranquility
The amber lantern of the moon
My heart’s beating that’s learned how to lose its breath
I’ll never forget it for as long as I live
I’ll never forget it for as long as I live
