I find it amusing how when I don’t have much to do, I really DON’T have much to do at all. Then, when I have stuff starting to pile up, I am pummeled quickly. Since the 2nd trimester started at Mito HS, I have been watching my time getting sucked out. It’s good in that I am kept busy, but I wish it were more in spurts rather than all at once. Because of all this, I am once again late with my entry, though I assure you that I will post this weekend.
If you didn’t know, my favorite Japanese band is The Pillows. It’s a band that I have known for many years now. They were formed in 1989, but I got really into them starting about 8 years ago. Last Thursday, I went to a Pillows concert in Nagoya. It was great! I don’t usually go to concerts mainly because I don’t like how loud the music can be. Actually, I didn’t even plan on going to this concert.
The day before, someone who knows that I love The Pillows gave me a ticket. She bought it a while ago, but something came up. Considering how rather unknown the band is with Japanese students, I wondered if she could successfully give the ticket to someone else. She works for the bakery that’s close to my apartment. The bakery sends people to Mito HS to sell bread at a designated area in the school. I occasionally buy from it, but I go to the actual bakery more often. Anyway, I think she’s one of those diehard fans, so I got her something from the concert as I also bought myself plenty of merchandise. I would love to go to another Pillows concert.
Stay tuned next week for another update!
En français (et 日本語の歌詞):
J’ai acheté le plus nouveau Pillows CD dans juin. Il s’appelle Pied Piper. Le plus chanson populaire dans leur disque est Tokyo Bambi. Voila la vidéo et les lyriques japonais:
聞こえたかい I need you so my darling
今週の聖書の詩: “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
- John 3:19-21 (NIV)
These words are so true. I find it interesting how people prefer to act in the dark when it’s something that they consider bad. Live in the light…
