Yep, this is how I celebrate Shark Week:

And we can add "Rin working out" to "Rin getting out of the pool". Thank you, show. Oh, more "Rin speaking English" please.

Nagisa. She bought you strawberry-flavored protein powder. MAKE YOUR MOVE, SON! Geez, this is why I need to be your mom. I can drive you to swim practice, bake you cookies, remind you to clean your room, and help you get the girl.

And Rin, I love you, and I know it's Shark Week, but I was rooting for Team Dolphin. Look how bummed they are, awwww.

But come on guys, you came in second to Samezuka. That's no small thing, nor surprising. And plus Makoto fucked it up for you. I'm sorry, darling boy, but you did.

And I'm at the end of my patience with Sousuke. Every party needs a pooper and that's why we invited you. I'm now convinced that he's full of crap, and they're going to have to pull out something really awesome story-wise to validate the time we're wasting on him when I'd rather be focusing on Makoto or Nagisa's stuff. And, dude, asking for a day off when Rin just told you that you'd better take this shit seriously? This better be good, is all I'm saying.

I feel you, Haru, I really do, and it sucks when people keep trying to put you in a box. And I think it's ridiculous that we expect teenagers to know what they want to do with their lives when they haven't even lived yet. There's so much out there. Heck, my family loves to bring up that I'm not doing what I said I wanted to do when I was fifteen. I was a kid, what did I know? I got halfway through my major at college and realized I didn't have the right personality for it, but I still planned to get my MBA until I met D, because that's what was expected of me. My grandpa, rest his soul, never missed a chance to tell me I was wasting my potential, until I finally had to say, yeah, maybe, but I'm happy. Life happens, things change, what's important to you changes, and I think the best thing we can tell young people that not only is it okay to not be sure, but it's also okay to change your mind. It's okay to do different things, and guess what, you probably will. I quit my job because I couldn't take coming home and crying over how miserable I was anymore. What I want to do now has nothing to do with what I wanted to do when I was a teenager. And that's fine.

So be free, Haru. BE FREE.

Not much happened this episode, although Rin showed his maturity by telling Haru that it was okay to be 'free'... makes you wonder what the point of the exercise is, asking seniors what their plans are. Focus their minds a bit? I recall in Japan a lot of people do start working or enter vocational training out of high school; the income gap between blue collar and white collar work there is not great.

I call Gou tailing him and getting into trouble and Sousuke coming to the rescue, and then when we finally know what the stick up his butt has been.

I see the point of having/setting a goal, but it also needs to be said that whatever you pick now doesn't have to be set in stone forever. Out of me, my two sisters, and my husband, none of us are doing what we went into college thinking we'd do.

Gou's definitely on the case. I just hope I'm not rolling my eyes at whatever's found out.
