高校卒業式
2014-02-22 19:41


The graduation ceremony for my son's high school was held yesterday. It was a beautiful day for the departure. My son had the honor of receiving the Aichi prefectural Governor's award during the ceremony. Later we had a small party which had been organized by some of the PTA members. While there, I was spoken to by the chief director, the school principal and a lot of other teachers who used to teach my son. All of them praised my son and told me that I would have to persuade him to continue to study to enter the national university. However, I told them that he has been under pressure and depressed since last summer, so he had given up taking the exam for Waseda in Tokyo, and unfortunately, he would not be able to meet their expectations on the exam for Mei-Dai.(2014.2.22)
息子の高校卒業式の日は、風が冷たかったけれどよく晴れて旅立ちにはパーフェクトな日でした。式の後、先生方を交えて昼食パーティーがありましたが、そこで私が息子がもう私立大学へ行くことにしたと言ったら、まだまだ君は頑張れると息子を励まして下さいました。

Last Tuesday I had dinner with my father at a French restaurant near my home town. There I was able to tell my father the good results of my son's entrance exams for universities. He had been able to pass the exams for 4 private schools recently without having to go to the exam hall thanks to his high score on the central exam in January . Even if he fails to enter the national university the end of this month, he now has 8 private universities and the Defense Force Academy which have all accepted him. My father said now that his grand-child has a promising future he finally would be able to have a party to celebrate his 88th birthday with all his family members.(2014.2.16)
高校3年の息子が、東京の明治大学、関西の私立大学の立命館、同志社の理工学部に合格しました。
今週金曜日は卒業式ですが、愛知県知事賞がいただけるそうです。

Since the end of last year my husband has been suffering from a sore throat and a slight fever. He says it's not serious, and only a cold, but he hasn't been able to get over it for a long time. My son has been avoiding him as his important exam is a week from now.

国立入試は来週に迫ってますが、息子は私立が受かったのでのんびりしています。主人がまた風邪をひいているので、息子にうつさないようにと願っています。

2014、3月まで、息子の受験について

Today is the final day for my son to sit an entrance exam. Some people probably wonder why he has to take another exam again. He has decided to go to Meiji and I've already paid tuition. But he would like to try a different national university's exam which gives them a second opportunity to pass. The university is the one my father graduated from. If my son had taken it on the same day as the Nagoya university exam, he could have been accepted easily since he got first place on the mock exams and the University admission exam among the students who wanted to go to the university of education in Aichi.(2014.3.12)
最後の入試、県内の教育大学の後期試験に息子は朝早くから出かけました。先回の受験した大学でなくもしこちらを選択していたら、模擬試験、センターなどで一位を獲得した大学だからきっと合格していたに違いありません。後期試験はほんのわずかの人しか合格できないそうです。
One of my son's good friends also failed Kyoto university's entrance exam. My son said that it was unthinkable for his friend to not pass, since he was the best student in his liberal arts course. As he was the top student in science class, my son tried the Nagoya university exam and failed. Even though so many students were able to pass private school exams and other national universities, no one has passed Tokyo, Kyoto or Nagoya university's exams this year.(2014.23.11)
息子が中学入学試験に出会ってからずっと仲がよかった友は高校2年から彼は文系、息子は理系と別れてしまいましたが、今も毎日のように話しをしているようです。その友達は残念ながら京都一の国立に合格しませんでした。
I've been trying to think that my son would have not been in his element at Nagoya University, which is the most prestigious university in this area. He was good at liberal arts at school, but since he decided to major in technology, he was not able to show his stuff in the entrance exam and failed this time. "Better to be first in a village than second in Rome,so he will be able to enjoy his school life in the easier university from April.(2014.3.10)
文系科目はS判定の良い成績を取れるのに、国立理系では得意の歴史はなく、また国語や英語のテストの配分がとても少ないのです。化学は得意科目(センターでは満点)でしたが、他の理系科目はもう少し努力が必要だったようです。そのため物理をカバーすることもできず、また夏から集中力がなくなったことも原因でしょう、今回初めて息子は試験に失敗しました。

高三の息子が、関東、関西の私立大学理工学部(同志社・立命館・明治大学etc.)受験した大学はすべて合格しました。
Last November, my son took the entrance examination of the Defense Force Academy as a fallback school, and in December had to take the second step, an interview and physical examination. He was lucky enough to pass both exams, even though the fail rate was high, only one out of 12 boys pass. Last weekend he took the university admissions examination. He was able to get an 82. Now that he know his academic level, he is going to apply to his first-choice university.(2014.1.22)
去年受験した防衛大学の合格発表がありました。
Today is the first day of the university admissions examination, which is held for 2 days in succession. When I drove my son to the nearest station from our house, he was muttering to himself. "I know that the results foreshadow our future, but I've been relaxing and I didn't try hard in the past few months, maybe I am a rare case among my peers." In fact it's been peaceful in our home, who could've imagined he was a test taker from his life style.(2014.1.18)
センター試験の一日目、車の中で、「他のみんなにとっては一生を決める大事な試験だからな、僕みたいにのんびりしてるのいないだろうな~。」と言った息子、ずいぶん前に僕は戦わないと宣言していました。家の中も受験生のいるような緊張感がまったくなかった数ヶ月でした。

Yesterday morning, when I went to the station it was snowing hard. While in the car park I called my language school to tell them I would not be coming because of the terrible weather.
I was supposed to take 3 lessons of English and French, so I again wasted money 2 weeks in a row. Heavy snow had rarely discouraged me before, but I nowadays I feel depressed. (2014.2.15)
昨晩から降っていた積雪のため車のハンドルが取られギクッとすることが何度もありました。

ピアノ曲

My son sometimes plays Mozart these days. He usually plays classical music on the violin, but not on the piano. I'm glad to know that he has grown to like to different genres.(2015.2.13)
ポップ音楽を主に弾いていた息子が最近またクラッシックを弾くようになって何となくうれしかったです。ヴァイオリンをやっている影響かもしれません。
I may be able to play many classical or pop songs on the piano in front of my friends, but I don't feel that I play any of them well enough to record. I still haven't been able to post any new tunes on my blog, but this is another one of my goals this year.(2015.2.16)
