Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen)

Everybody's Free
(to wear sunscreen)
Mary Schmich
Chicago Tribune

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97... wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be IT.

The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.

I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You are NOT as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Sing.
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Floss.
Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Stretch.
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Travel.
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

I want to make a home page.

I'm thinking a home page to make.
What kind of home page will I make it?
I have to remember how to use the software of a home page in front of it!
Its distance seems long.

今日、英会話の休憩時間にスタッフルームでGILLとオージーの女性のTeacher

二人が、合唱していました。
ベジマイトの歌を・・・

なんだか、嬉しそう・・・

ひさびさ!

2005-05-24 22:24:09 | 英語の時間
明日は英会話のレッスンに行く予定。
とーっても久しぶりなので、
きっと授業はチンプンカンプンでしょう、きっと。
それじゃなくっても、
教材が変わってから、ついていけないし
っていうか、来週早々都の立ち入りがあって
レッスン受けてる場合じゃないんだよ、ホントは・・・
このまま行くと、土曜出勤かなぁ

I have to use English, too!

No way!
Recently, I'm writing a weblog only in Japanese!
I sometimes have to write it in English!

悪あがき

2005-04-17 22:28:13 | 英語の時間
英会話に通ってます
年度末、忙しくて全然レッスンに行けませんでした
先週から焦って通っています
何故って?
それは
ゴールデンウィークにオーストラリアに行くから
友達の所にお世話になるのだけれど
旦那がオージーなんですよ
だから必然的に会話はえーご。
どうしよう!と慌てふためいております
それじゃなくてもここのところ
上達しなくて悩んでいるのに。
あと二週間無い~

I go to an English school.
Work was busy, and I couldn't go to a lesson for about one month in the end of the fiscal year.
I'm impatient from last week and go to a lesson.
Why?
Because that goes to Australia in a Golden Week.
I'll stay at the friend in Australia.
And her husband is Australian.
So conversation is English inevitably.
How should I do!
And I'm flustered.
Even if it isn't that, my English conversation is unskillful.
Travel is departure on April 28th.
