お釈迦様のお誕生日とロマンガラス!Buddha’s birthday and roman glass

今日はお釈迦様のお誕生日で有難いことに祭日です!この良い日に天気が良くて出かけたら楽しいはず のに私は何をしているでしょう??勉強アンド勉強です!期末の終わりまで後3週間で忙しいですね。

6月3日に又発表が控えています。今回は韓国美術史の発表です。全員が韓国国立博物館で気に入ったものを選び、発表をします。私は新羅(三国時代)の古墳から出土されたロマンガラスを選びました。資料が少なくて疑問が多い研究は大変ですが4世紀から5世紀ごろに東洋と西洋の交流に興味があり非常に面白いです。面白くても、時間が要ります!!

それに面白い発表を作るのにコツがいります。頭が痛いです!

今夜は飲みに行くので今日は真面目に勉強をしよう!

Today is a public holiday in Korea. It is Buddha’s birthday, it is great weather and what am I doing? I AM STUDYING!!! We only have 3 weeks to go until the end of the semester and everyone is starting to look busy. I am preparing for a Korean Art presentation. We will be giving the presentation at the National Museum of Korea and I have chosen to do a presentation on Roman Glass found only in the Unified Shilla tombs. It is incredibly fascinating to think there was a cultural exchange of people and goods that dates back as far as the 4th and 5th Centuries. I am having trouble with sources I can find for my research (however the best sources have been in Japanese). Doesn’t matter how interesting it is is…..it all takes time and presenting it in an interesting manner means effort!

I am going out drinking tonight so I had better study hard today……

Happy Buddha’s Birthday!
