Literally: one – joy – one – sorrow/anxiety
Alternately: Alternating positve and negative feelings: joy and sorrow, hope and fear, cheerfulness and worry. Being unable to put one’s mind at ease. Mood swings. Extreme sensitivity to small changes in the situation.
So, uh, one girl’s mood is influenced by the day’s high temperature; the other’s, by the stock market. Source.
I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
