深夜まで勉強漬け? アメリカ留学生の忙しい1日!〔#541〕#ちか友留学生活

It's nine o'clock, 現在は9時で、Paul and I are leaving our place, ポールと僕は家を出てand walking to the campus. キャンパスに歩いて行きます!Paul just bumped into his friend.Sorry if I disrupted the process.
(動畫作りの)邪魔になってたらごめんねNo no no, it's okay. いやいやいや、大丈夫It's more natural right? この方が自然でしょ?Right right.
うん、うん!Hey! ねぇ!Is that Ian?
あれってイアン?Ian!! イアン!
!I didn't know you were here! ここにいるの気づかなかった!Good morning.
We're bumping into so many friends today.Yeah I'm filming.We are heading to the campus together.Are you gonna come to Undokai?
運動會來る?What's that? なにそれ?Ah, April 15th, えっと、4月15日にあるんだけど、Oh okay, so not.
じゃあそれって、You know what Undokai is though? そもそも運動會って何か知ってる?No. いや。
Sports event. スポーツイベントだよ。Sports festival. 運動會。
There's ten schools competing against each other. 10校が競い合うんだ。Ten JSAs competing against each other. 10校のJSA(日本人クラブ)が競い合うんだよ。
What sports? 何のスポーツで?Relay race リレーとlet's see. 何だっけ。
Tug-of-war, 綱引き、So many people. すごい人です。So many people.Okay, see you later!
オッケー、じゃあまた後でSo, I'm going to the library.There's three levels in the library,but the largest study space is on the second floor.So, I'm gonna study up there.I'm reviewing my notes from Economics class.
This is about Marx's criticism of CapitalismMy notes look like this.Now, I'm gonna head to my class.Since this is the center of the campus,there are people coming back from classes and people going to classes.It's lively.
You can get Pass/Non-pass though. パス/ノンパス(成績のタイプ)でも取れるよ。Oh really. え、本當。
I'll see you later. じゃあまたね!This is my favorite course called Social Psychology.This class teacheshow other people influence an individual's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
For example, in the last class,we did an experiment called Helping Demo.We dropped a stack of people in front of pedestriansto see if they offer help under various situations.Why don't you go to that campus tour? あのキャンパスツアーの人たちいってみたら?
I think I will. そうするわ。One of my team members dropped a stack of papers in front of a big group.A couple of people looked at her.
But they walked away.Then a guy at the back of the group offered a hand.Here is a woman walking by herself..
she walked away.The gender of the person dropping the paper,the number of people in the group who witness the incident,all of these various factors came into playin peoples' decision to help.Dropping the papers in a dramatic way like thisand giving a sense of urgency was also an important element.I'm so sorry for those who helped me pick up the paper:(Now I'm at a building called Ackerman Hall,where the UCLA store is located,to eat lunch.
This area with the salad bar iswhere I have my lunch.Class is over now.Some people are still here asking questions.I'm now going to a library to study,but not the Powell Library that I went to this morning.
and it's called YRL.Now, I'm going to a club meeting for JSA that starts at 6pm.Hi there, my name is Ian.UCLA's JSA is a Japanese Student Association.
In this club, we don't care if you are Japanese or not.Many UC schools have JSAs.Ian is learning Japanese with JSA members:)Wait, I have a question. 待って、質問。
Is it for sure gonna be on week 8? (そのイベントって)絶対8週目になりそう?Ahhh, it's slightly flexible depending on ..
えーーっと、少し融通は効く.(雑音)We're all going to have dinner at the dining hall now.This is so spicy. Anyone have this?
これすごく辛い。食べた人いる?Chisei, if you don't get your shit together tomorrow. チセイ、おまえ明日ちゃんとやらないと.
Look at my posture? 俺の姿勢見てみ?That's tomorrow. 明日もこんな感じ。
No, I don't need you to be sitting here. いや、座ってればいいってわけじゃないから。I need you to work. 働いてくれなきゃ。
I went home once to take a shower.Now I'm back to the study lounge in the dorm area,to finish my homework and reading that's due tomorrow.There's less people than usual today,it's kinda nice.I've finished studying and I'm going homeIt's past 2am, but there's still quite a number of peopleeveryone working hard.
There are days like this where I don't finish studying till really lateand sometimes it's hard, butbeing surrounded by my peers who are smart and inspiring,taking really fun courses,makes me really appreciate the opportunity to be here.UCLA is known for being excellent both in academics and sports.Many of my friends actually work hard not just in academics, but in sports too.Each day I'm inspired to work harder and harder.
Good night.
