My Favorite songs of the moment and failing exams.

Every few weeks, the fans know how it goes, the TOP 3 songs that you play kinda shuffle around and other MJ favorites come in and become your new fave of the moment. Here are my favorites right now:

  1. You Were Made Especially For Me
  2. Can't Let Her Get Away
  3. With a Child's Heart

So lately I've had this huge huge huge goal that I have yet to achieve hanging over my head. I've slid through my undergraduate and b-school programs like butter (pretty much) but I have yet to achieve my ULTIMATE GOAL. I've been studying Japanese for almost half of my life but still have not been able to conquer the beast that is JLPT2. I totally SUCK at memorization (unless it happens to do with Michael music, lyrics, photos, quotes etc) and memorizing the 1500+ characters needed to officially become BUSINESS LEVEL certified is a totally difficult thing for me. I was totally unprepared because of drama I went through right before the exam last December but NOW that I am on my own and pretty much don't have any distractions, I can say that I'm ready to take the challenge one more time.

But I have failed. Not once but... Twice. The second time stung the most because 3 thousand dollars and countless hours of studying and late nights at classes later, I was STILL losing. JLPT 2 : MJFANGIRL 0. This time, I'm not sure that I'll pass but I need something to put my energy into once MJ season dies down. Passing this (and memorizing these damn characters and vocab words will be a major career boost and could possibly get me more money and better opportunities -including the possibility of starting my own Freelance business.

Right now I am a woman who is pretty much free as a bird. I'm not married, no children.... (yet!)

Do y'all think I should take this exam again? Or just take the L in the Japanese department once and for all?


  1. I can help quiz you with Flashcards :)

  2. Aww, I too know what it's like to try and try again, especially on something difficult that you care about. When is the next time you can take the exam? fall? I know it's hard to get back on the horse, but I know you can do it!


  3. Don't give up! You can do it, and if it's something that will really help your career and move closer to other goals, then I say do it! If after the 3rd time you don't pass, then you should leave it alone. But don't try to cram if the exam is this fall. I think you should give it a little more time for you to be able to fully prepare and focus on it.
