There is exactly about one month of classes left for me, and I feel like I already ran out of motivation to get anything done. That being said, I’m still pushing through cause this last few weeks are quite important, and with my Junior year being over in a month, I feel like there are many changes approaching my near future.
I’m spending the summer in Osaka University, Japan, doing research in immunology. After that, it will be time to finish my education (I’ll be a senior in the fall…) and find a job. I’m hoping the economy will be recovering by then and there are good job opportunities for me. I’m sure, however, that things will go well one way or the other.
In a not so related note, I was thinking about my Japanese kanji name. My first name in Japanese it’s written オマル (omaru). Some people translate is as オマール (omaaru) but I don’t like the elongated ‘a’ sound because it doesn’t resemble the original pronunciation of my name in Spanish. That being said, I also have a kanji name, a Japanese name written with Chinese characters. My kanji name was suggested to me by my friend Masato-kun, who was in Boston until March and used to be my language exchange partner. One of the most fun people I’ve met. That being said, he wasn’t sure how to translate the meaning of my kanji name, but many people agree that it’s a really good name.
The kanji name he suggested is 御丸 which according to Google Translate it means “Full Control”. Not bad, huh? I’m trying to get inspired and really feel my name, and keep everything under control this term. Wish me luck. 🙂
