来年のことを言えば鬼が笑う (Speak of tomorrow (next year) and the devil will laugh).

One thing I love so much about the Japanese, is that they have loads of great ideas and ideas that has connection to the life I am living in. Of course, there is loads of good proverbs from China, Thailand, (where I suppose to link myself more than Japan) or even complicated Western proverbs which I have grown up with.

Anyway, today, I will introduce this proverb to you.

[来 年のことを言えば鬼が笑う] or equivalent to  [Speak of tomorrow and the devil will laugh]

Of course, the devil has laughed at me, more than I could even count. But why should I stop talking about the future?
I think I don’t want to stop talking about my future, but if I think back of it, I have thought and planned too much, and that I have been laughed at, by the devil, just because I have planned and day-dreamed of things that will not be true.

Darn. What kind of rambling have I done.

Last year, I hope that I will get the Monbusho scholarship. I have dreamed that probably this time of the year, I will b in Japan. But I failed the interview, and so, I am still in Thailand, doing at what I do best. Teaching.

I am pretty happy at what I am doing, but it would be better if I have had the chance to follow my dreams.

But dreams are only just dreams if luck, in addition to, skills are in paired together. I have none of those. I thought too highly of myself, and I failed miserably.

I have just taken the English exam of Monbusho which was so easy. I know that I can ace it, but the only thing is I will not get it because of my research proposal which might be too contemporary for certain people.

So now, I got to wait for results if I passed on to the interview stage. I just want to wait for the final step before thinking of the future.

Until then, I will not daydream of the future, but I will do the best for tomorrow.
