Ganbatte!

GANBATTE!!!

It’s Japanese for: Do your best!

I don’t know Japanese, but only a few nice phrases like this one.

Today has been an ultra-productive day, so much so that I have the word, “GANBATTE” repeating through my mind.

I’m very tempted to make a funky head band with that word on it, and then tying it around my head as I work.

The next semester is starting soon, and I’m really excited. Have started reading philosophical works, and have also resumed the contemplation of philosophy in my mind. All systems are up and running once again!

I’m a philosopher! And I’m loving it!

GANBATTE!!!
