Location: Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan

I'm a university student and belong to karate circle in the university. I like sports very much. In my junior high school and high school days, I belonged to volleyball club, and track and field club. I enjoyed both of them, and now I like watching these sports on TV. I also like animals and have a dog and 7 Japanese killifish. I want to have a cat, too. However, my father don't like cats, and my dog, Rug, will chase the cat. So I will not be able to have any cat...

Presentation of a certification

After 5th period on this Friday, I had a ceremony to present an oversea student certificate. I even didn't expect getting the certificate, so the ceremony was a little bit bothering to me at first. Students had to wear a suit on the ceremony, and I expected listening to long long speeches.
Yes, we had long long speeches, and dean’s was the longest. He said that he had spoken longer than he had expected… He is an alumnus of KGU and studied abroad when he was fourth year student.
President, dean, a teacher, and two students who study abroad from this spring spoke on the ceremony, and there was a sentence I liked, which one of the students spoke. “It is raining now.” He said it meant that it would be fine later. So if I get difficulty, I’ll be able to think that it will be over someday, with the sentence.
At first, the ceremony seemed to be bothering, but the ceremony encouraged me.

Coming of Age Day

On last Monday, the ceremony of coming of age day was held in my hometown.

I went to the place where the ceremony was held with my friend. There were so many people. I wanted to see my junior high school friends, but I could find just some of them... In addition, the hall wasn't large enough for us to get in. I and my friend didn't listen to people on the stage for a long time.

After the ceremony was over, there were more people... I called one of my junior high school friends to see and to talk, but it was too crowded to find her. I and my friend stayed there about two hours after the ceremony. We wanted to go to purikura, but we couldn't. We didn't have enough time to go because we planted to go to our high school. Students of my high school who was the same year as mine were going to go to my high school to see. I met some friends of mine. They were all beautiful in furisode.

After that, I and the friend went to karaoke and had dinner with another friend.

I remember that my brother had the ceremony of coming of age day last year, and now, my ceremony of coming of age day is over. A year is short... Recently, I really think so. On the 13th of January in 2007, I will have finished study abroad. I think that 2007 will be short for me again. Maybe shorter. So I want to make this year meaningful and beneficial.
