Things I'm Thankful For In The Last Few Days

First, for the fact that i got a chance to be one of the honor students from my department again this year. I didn't think that i would make it again this year. Anyway, being an honor student is not suppose to be the goal of studying. I see it more as a bonus reward for the hard work we've done. Don't you think so folks?

Second, for the chance to learn how to sing a Japanese song with a talented singing couch. I love listening to the music, i love singing, but i never really able to sing well. And today i learned to sing a Japanese song entitled "Pop Master" by Mizuki Nana. Well, i didn't practice for the whole song though, but for the parts that i practiced today, i would say i got better :)
Third, for the unbelievably amazing team work i had with three other people in preparing a presentation for bio-business case study course. All of us didn't really know each other before, we are all different in interests, passions, etc. But we could manage to be ready by the time we need to present it. And as for me, it's a real challenge to deliver a presentation in Japanese language. Blah. The hardest part was when the audiences started to ask questions, it's like they didn't care whether me, a foreigner who has limited proficiency in Japanese, understand the question or not (-__-). And guess what, i didn't understand many of the questions so i had my team mates to explain the questions in more understandable phrases. LOL. Otsukaresan, minna :)
So, those were three things i'm thankful for in the last few days. Well, of course there are a bunch of other things which i should be thankful for that i don't think those should be listed here. hehe.
Anyway, enjoy the remaining of the week by being productive friends! Bye :D

A Little Bit Stronger - Leighton Meester

Woke up late today 
And I still felt the sting of the pain 
But I brushed my teeth anyway 
Got dressed through the mess 
And put a smile on my face 
I got a little bit stronger 

Riding in the car to work 
And I'm trying to ignore the hurt 
So I turned on the radio 
Stupid song made me think of you 
I listened to it for a minute 
But then I changed it 
And I'm getting a little bit stronger 
Just a little bit stronger 

I'm done hoping that we can work it out 
I'm done with how it feels 
Spinning my wheels 
And letting you drag my heart around 
And I'm done thinking you could ever change 
I know my heart will never be the same 
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay 
Even on my weakest days 
I get a little bit stronger 
I get a little bit stronger 

It doesn't happen overnight 
Then you turn around and months gone by 
And you realize you haven't cried 
I'm not giving you an hour, or a second, or another minute longer 
I'm busy getting stronger 

I'm done hoping that we can work it out 
I'm done with how it feels 
Spinning my wheels 
And letting you drag my heart around 
And I'm done thinking that you could ever change 
I know my heart will never be the same 
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay 
Even on my weakest days 
I get a little bit stronger 
Just a little bit stronger 

Getting along without you, baby 
I'm better off without you, baby 
How does it feel without me, baby? 
I'm getting stronger without you, baby 

I'm done hoping that we can work it out 
I'm done with how it feels 
Spinning my wheels 
And letting you drag my heart around 
And I'm done thinking that you could ever change 
I know my heart will never be the same 
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay 
Even on my weakest days 
I get a little bit stronger 
Just a little bit stronger 

I get a little bit stronger 
Just a little bit stronger 
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger 

A little bit stronger
