地獄への片道切符

まぁ、2ヶ月限定だから一応往復か・・・
仕事が決まった。開始は来月、偶然にも僕の誕生日から・・・
条件は悪くない、と思う。いろいろ考えると割りに合わない感は否めないがまぁいいだろう。
仕事内容は、め組の大吾ばりの火消し。
まぁ、IT系の火消しといえば何なんて分かる人は分かるわな。そういうこと・・・
前回火消しに行った時は1ヶ月だったけど、今回は2ヶ月。すでに月300時間という稼働時間の申告をくらっていたり・・・
年末、正月返上だろうなぁ・・・土日もかなぁ・・・日曜くらいは休みたいのだが、大丈夫だろうか・・・
ぶっちゃけ、派遣なのでそんなこと気にする必要もないはずだけど。

label

I've organized the labels so that there were too many of them; however it's still a lot. Well, I think I have to decide what I will write. I don't think writing something I just want to is a wrong way, but it's not a good way, either. (Maybe it's not a strong decision, even though I do think about it strongly right now. Because it's my way, you know)

不思議の国のアリス

古典児童文学としては有名すぎるほど有名な本。まぁ、英語学習にも向いているといううわさを聞きつけて購入。不思議の国のアリスと鏡の国のアリスが両方ついてて693円なら、まぁいい買い物だと思う。単にオリバーツイストが難しすぎて少しレベルを下げたかったというのもあるのだが・・・
っで、まだ半分くらいだけど読んでみた感想。割とすらすら読める。大枠の話を知っているからなのか、ネットに転がっていたオーディオブックみたいなのを飽きるほど聞いていたからなのかは謎だけど。でも、やっぱり知らない単語はちらほら。辞書引かないと全体が分からないというほどではないので、現状はとりあえず流し読み。
あと、どっかで見たけどアリスで書かれてる英語はきちんとした英語なので単語を置き換えれば演説にも簡単に使えるらしい。事実かなぁと。口語と文語(というほどでもないのかな?)とどっちが理解しやすいのかと言うのは個人的な得手不得手に拠るのでなんともいえないが、日本の英語教育ならこういうのの方が読みやすいと感じるんじゃないかなぁ。
とりあえず、今のところ面白いなぁと思った行。
`Dear, dear! How queer everything is to-day! And yesterday things went on just as usual. I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I? Ah, THAT'S the great puzzle!'

チェシャネコとのやり取りも面白いなぁと思ったけど、こっちにしてみた。

disappointment

There were some disappointment in this week.

* I couldn't get the job which I got interviewed 2 times, after all.
Actually, I did know the possibility that I couldn't get the job, because they said they wasn't ordered yet. However I expected, of course, I could. Then I have to find something else.

* I've checked my English level and it was awful.
Well, it was a grammar test then I realized how I didn't know about it and how it wasn't improved. Actually the recognition of lacking it isn't so bad, probably it's good. I've just lost my confidence.

By the way, when I was watching a drama in English with subtitles, I always read the subtitle first and then I recognized what they said in English. Well, what I wanted to say was I still need some help to understand them completely, of course sometimes I realized their mistakes.
Understanding a long sentence like there are a lot of relative clauses or modified words, this sentence is probably a good example, is still so difficult for me, expecially only sound. Of course, shortage of vocabulary is one of the biggest problem.
I don't know why, maybe I do. In English, it is basically supposed to be said a result first then explanations, of course there are a lot of exceptions. However in Japanese, it's usually opposite. So, if I missed a first few words, I could usually not understand what they said.
One more reason why I can't understand. I think English pronunciation is more abstract than Japanese is. Maybe it's my misunderstanding. However it's not the same as some of examples on Japanese audio textbook or something made in Japan for Japanese English learner. I meant in drama the actors usually don't speak so clear. It's just my opinion, so maybe they do with some differences from Japanese one.

Well, what I wanted to say was my English is still suck.

浜松にて

浜松のイベントに参加してきました。
アカペラのイベントです。
6組くらい参加してたけど、僕ら以外は大変若い。いいなぁ、学生・・・

4曲歌うことになっていたのだけど、そのうち2曲は練習したことのほぼない曲・・・
待ち時間の間に練習と暗譜、できはまだ聞いてないけど、個人的にはよくやった方ではないかと
個人的に練習時間がほとんど無かったというだけなんだけど・・・

5ヶ月のブランクがあるので、声が出ないなぁということを実感。
これぐらいの方がやかましくなくていいのか、鍛えなおした方がいいのか・・・

Job interview

Now, I'm, of course, seeking a job. Yesterday I had the interview which was the second stage's one to get a job. Peaple who have registered a job agency must know the system of job interview, that's this. It has some complicated step to be decided, and makes me annoying.

Anyway, the interview was not so bad. I'm glad that I have the skill to talk to someone who I don't know. So, I think I could give them a good impression. However they and I don't know if we, I mean they and I, will get a job or not. This is a part of the complicated system. They haven't had the project yet, however they wanted some member in case they get it.

Well, I hope I get it. They said they would receive the answer from their client in 2 weeks, and if they wouldn't, we would lose the oppotunity. It's kind of ridiculous, eh? But it's still easier than Canada...
