Even though I’ve barely touched my Japanese books tonight, it really helps to immerse myself in Japanese music to get me in the mood and complete all these activities.

I’ve made it a habit to listen to Japanese music while studying Japanese, but tonight felt peculiar.  Maybe it’s the post-vacation clarity, realizing that over half of this year is already over, or remembering to take care of several important errands immediately, but tonight I felt a renewed sense of motivation to get where I want to be.  I still don’t know what the hell I’m gonna do after I reach my short-term goal of teaching English in Japan, but all I know is that I can’t get there until I get myself and my business together.

If it that means making some much belated spring cleaning, then that’s fine.

Need to clean out my friends/follower list of people I don’t really care for/people that don’t really care for me, anyway.

…and clear off that pile of paperwork over my turntable that’s slowly growing.

But as long as I keep up with my weekly habits of eating right, working out, give myself time to study, and be on top of important business, among other things, then will I feel like I have some sense of control of what I’m doing in my life rather than mope around and be pissed off at the world.

In celebration of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s imminent arrival to Houston this weekend and my attending the On the Run concert becoming increasingly real, I decided to translate a song off Beyoncé’s new album.
Sorry Hova, you’re still cool in my book tho.

金曜日にヒューストンでの「オン・ザー・ラン」のコンサートの為にビヨンセの歌を翻訳することにした。
ごめん、ホーバー、パーフォーマンスも最高に違いないよ!

Beyoncé - Pretty Hurts
ビヨンセ - 美しさ痛い

Mama said, you’re a pretty girl
お母さんが「きれいな少女だ」
What’s in your head it doesn’t matter
「何か頭にいるのは構わない」
Brush your hair, fix your teeth
「髪をかけなさい、歯を矯正しなさい」
What you wear is all that matters
「何を着るのは構う」と言う

*Just another stage
ただ他のステージ
Pageant the pain away
痛みを隠し込んで
This time I’m gonna take the crown
今度落とせずに
Without falling down, down
クロウンを持ってゆくよ

**Pretty hurts
美しさ痛い
We shine the light on whatever’s worse
悪いことを照らしている
Perfection is the disease of a nation
完全は国民の感染症だ
Pretty hurts, pretty hurts
美しさ痛い、美しさ痛い
Pretty hurts
美しさ痛い
We shine the light on whatever’s worse
悪いことを照らしている
Tryna fix something
何かを直してみても
But you can’t fix what you can’t see
見えないことを直せない
It’s the soul that needs the surgery
精神は手術が要るんだ

Blonder hair, flat chest
金髪、胸が小さい物
TV says bigger is better
テレビが「大きければ大きいほどいい」と伝う
South beach, sugar free
サウス・ビーチ、無邪気のないこと
Vogue says thinner is better
ヴォーグが「痩せれば痩せるほどいい」と伝う

(*Repeat/繰り返し)

(**Repeat/繰り返し)

Ain’t got no doctor or pill that can take the pain away
錠剤も医者も痛みを散らせない
The pain’s inside
痛みが君の中にいて
And nobody frees you from your body
誰でも体から別れらない
It’s the soul, it’s my soul that needs surgery
精神は、精神は手術が要るんだよ
It’s my soul that needs surgery
精神は手術が要るんだ
Plastic smiles and denial can only take you so far
そんなに作り笑いと否定が助けられる
Then you break when the fake facade leaves you in the dark
それから偽の外観が闇に見放させられる
You left a shattered mirror
壊されたミラーと
And the shards of a beautiful girl
美しい少女の孤独を残したんだよ

(**Repeat/繰り返し)

When you’re alone all by yourself
一人きりで
And you’re lying in your bed
ベッドで寝込むと
Reflection stares right into you
君の影がまっすぐに見つかる
Are you happy with yourself?
自分に幸せだろうか?
You stripped away the masquerade
偽装を剥がした
The illusion has been shed
幻があぶり出してきた
Are you happy with yourself?
自分に幸せだろうか?
Are you happy with yourself?
自分に幸せだろうか?
Yes
そうだね
