BGM: Ben Folds - The Luckiest
On X, I've found an interesting opinion/comment by a famous Japanese idol. She had talked about the relationship between her effort and talent. Actually, she must have done really hard effort to join into a Japanese great university, Tokyo university. From that experience, she tells us how important for us to study harder, make effort harder to become greater (and we also shouldn't rely on our talent/gift from outer environment.)
About this kind of topic, I have to look back at my life history (avoiding doing so in anger.) As I have written in this journal many times, once I have joined in one of the most popular university in Japan, Waseda university. About this, I have to say thank you for my parents because it must have cost so much. In other way, I must be a really "lucky" person. Therefore I won't say that to study something very hard could make your way to go greater certainly, because at first we need to get (or build) any personal, proper environment for studying to keep on study I guess. And about me, my parents hadn't said to me that I shouldn't do study anymore or like that (but maybe, they could have said to me I shouldn't read too much.)
In Japan, once an internet slang had become really popular. "Oya Gacha." If I try to translate this into any proper English expression, it can become as "Parent Lottery." This means how our parent(s) can work its/ their important role for us to go on our own life toward our future. "If our parent(s) had been rich, then we could live easier toward our ideal future..." You would think this kind of idea as too "coward", but I accept this as a "critical" one. The reason why is what I have written above.
Indeed, our parent(s), our teacher(s), the outside environments, our gifted abilities... there are a lot of complicated factors therefore we shouldn't think about the efforts only. I say this. I might be a gifted autistic one. But I also love making efforts (especially I love learning English.) This love... I love making effort. It might show how "gifted" I am?
