お節、雪と大学院の倍率でちょっとびっくり New Year’s food, snow and competition in getting into grad school

2010年の元旦は2009年の元旦に続いて大雪です・・・面白くないですね!

積もる雪は息子たちに任せて→シャベルを壊す。ダーリンがJuscoにダッシュをして勝手来て元旦から大慌て・・・・

お節は効果があったようです。我が家の男たちが「美味しい、美味しい」と食べてくれて嬉しかった。満足です!

さって独身社員のお節は効果があったでしょうか・今年こそ結婚して欲しい・・

50歳過ぎると倍率は子供の受験とか宝くじと思っていました。大晦日に以前高麗大学で研究員をされ、今は一ツ橋大学で博士候補の友人がからメールありました。彼女からのメール→

今年、高麗大学院を受験した友達がいて、彼女は落ちてしまいましたが、

受験者が多く、例年以上に大変だったという噂は聞いていたので、合格、本当にすごいです!

・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・

ええ?私は入れると思って楽観的でした!厳しいと知ら何とか合格が出来た。

何となく50歳過ぎるとこのような体験が出来るのは本当に幸せです。

2010 started just like 2009…with heavy snow! We are not impressed! Our sons went out to shovel the snow and broke our last shovel….THANKYOU …. JM rushed off to Jusco to buy another shovel in the event we need to shovel ourselves out of the house….a major fluster from New Year’s Day…..

My hard work in the kitchen was rewarded! My men loved my food so I am satisfied….maybe I’ll cook again next year? I really hope Sako san enjoyed the New Year food I prepared for him and he finds himself a wife this year….

I thought that competitions were only for my children getting into university and for buying  lottery tickets. I was wrong! A few days ago a friend who is a PhD candidate at Hitotsubashi University and a former Korea University Fellow sent me an email congratulating for being accepted for Korea University. She informed me that her own friend didn’t get in and competition this year at Korea University was fierce!? Here was me unaware of such difficulties and thinking that I would definitely get in??

I did but maybe I shouldn’t have been so relaxed??

There is something exciting about just being able to experience such things at my age….
