Lyrics
I was so afraid of the days long ago
Now I realize that I never did know
Now days have changed; they’re complex and sad
Missing all the days that I once had
I don’t really think that I’d want to return
Today may be hard, but I live and I learn
My heart believes; I don’t think that it’s wrong
Then it shouts that I have been just right all along

Now is the time for our fate to connect
Believing in the same future, we intersect
All of the tears we have cried yesterday
Let’s dry them up and keep smiling on today
We are a team; we share all painfulness
But yet we also share all the same tenderness
As long as you stay right here next to me
I will stay strong for tomorrow; you will see..

Day 9’s Topic: Life.


Leave it to an anime song geared toward children to resonate so much with how my heart is feeling right now about life …

Pendulum★Cute - “One Step”

Translated Meaning of Lyrics
Now, catch that heart-pounding dream and cry your tears to release
Step forward to the field as the game starts
And take a fabulous one step to see a miracle

I realized that strength isn’t given
So I reach for it, one step after another
As I keep on working, never ever stopping

Even if walls or fierce winds stand in my way
I take a step forward, drawing my trump card called “Courage”
And believe in the story of victory Continue reading

Daily NhanSense – Day 2

Day 2′s Topic: Personal philosophy.


I’m not the kind of guy who wears necklaces, but I constantly carry one with me each day. It sounds a bit weird, so please allow me to explain.

I found the necklace below at an anime shop in my local mall. It was cheap at just $5, so why the heck not?

Though I don’t like wearing necklaces around my neck, I have made it a habit to have this trinket inside my left pocket throughout the day. I have been doing so for the past few months now.

The necklace has the Chinese symbol for “success,” which can be read as “gong” in Chinese or other ways like “kou” in Japanese.

If you look at the 功 symbol carefully, the radicals (as in the basic stroke shapes that make up the symbol itself) represent “work” and “strength” respectively, both of which are absolutely necessary for attaining success in anything. Continue reading

Believe in You

Standard

Do As Infinity - “Believe in You”

English Translation of Lyrics
I’m not even afraid of the sorrow
Or pain that I must get over
There is a life I’m joined with
Believe in you – I’ll go toward tomorrow

We’ll cross the waves of time
And finally arrive there, I’m sure

I won’t lose
On that day when I was helplessly lost
Your words pushed my back

The 54th Deadline: Opponents

Standard


————————————————————————————————————–
The 54th Deadline: Life is a series of chances to achieve something by a given point. You might very well miss out on opportunities if you are not careful. However, I firmly believe that God gives us plenty of means to find our way, even if we mess up here and there. After all, life demands deadlines. Try and try again until your goals and dreams are realized. Strive to finish on a successful note with whatever you set out to do. Always.
————————————————————————————————————–
Opponents in life are necessary. The best things in the world stem from competition. To the victor go the spoils, after all.

An opponent here. An opponent there. 

Is it wrong for me to think of anyone who gets in my way as an opponent? Am I justified in thinking of them as a literal obstacle to where I want to be?

Deep down, I just see this as how the world works. It’s a constant series of winners and losers, and to get ahead you need to make sure you’re the one who bests your given opponent.
