Happy... / Miyawaki Sakura Mobame / Jan 1, 2016, 5:17 pm (JST)

おめでとうございます。
...New Year.

2015年もお世話になりました!!
I'm once again indebted to everyone for 2015!!

年末はバタバタしてて、大晦日って実感が全くなかったけど…
嘘みたいにだらだらしてる元旦を過ごすと、あぁお正月きた。って思います。
The end of the year was such a rush that it didn't even really feel like New Year's Eve, but... 
now that I'm unbelievably just lazing around on New Year's Day, I finally sense that it's a new year now.


一昨年は、テレビでみてた紅白に
去年はHKTとして初出場、今年は初めてAKB選抜として出場できて嬉しかったなぁ。時間制限もギリギリ大丈夫だったから、、ヽ(* 'ー')ノ
The year before last, I was watching Kouhaku on TV,
last year I appeared for the first time with HKT and this year I'm happy to have appeared as AKB senbatsu. We barely made it on time.. ヽ(* 'ー')ノ

セーラージュピターになれたのも、楽しかったなぁ。永遠の女子の憧れだもんね。
あんなに完成度の高い衣装を着れて、本当に幸せ。セーラームーンど真ん中世代の衣装さん達が心から楽しそうでこっちも嬉しくなっちゃいました。笑
It was also fun to appear as Sailor Jupiter. It's the eternal longing of girls, isn't it?
It was good fortune being able to wear such an expertly made outfit. The people who worked on the outfit grew up with Sailor Moon, so they put their heart into making them and consequently I was ecstatic too. lol

でもやっぱり、、、
HKTとしても紅白出たかったなぁって
思いました。
But still...
the fact that HKT was not able to appear on Kouhaku
still hung over me.

本番前円陣をみんなでした時、去年は4チームここにいたのに、今年は2チームしかいなくて…これが現実なんだって。
そんなに甘い世界じゃないんだって、目の当たりにした気持ちになりました。
When we huddled together before the actual program, last year we had 4 teams, but this year we only had 2...that was the hard fact.
The fact that this world isn't so straightforward was evident before my eyes.


去年は、今頃バタバタしてたなぁとか、
あぁこの景色みんなでみたなぁとか、
色々と思い出しちゃって。
I remembered that last year, around this time
even though everyone was scrambling everywhere,
we were able to see such a sight together.


2015の年末は、悔しさが残る年末になりました。
2015 was a year that ended with bitterness.

2016年。どんな一年になるかなぁ。。
もう目標は立てました。絶対達成する!
2016. I wonder what kind of year it'll be..
I already have a resolution. I'll definitely achieve it!

とにかく健康。。
皆さんも、風邪引かないようにね。
In any case, health..
Everyone, please be careful not to catch a cold
