好きな事

バスケ最高!!めちゃ楽しかった!!2週間ぶりやったから、ハシャギまくって走りまくった☆ファールもしちゃったけどね。でもやっぱり好きなことしてる時って一番イキイキしてると思う。春休み前で試合終わるけど、その後もどうにかしてバスケしたいなぁ!絶対(๑→ܫ←人→ܫ←๑)

やっぱり親って偉大。ユリはほんまに自分の親、尊敬してる。小学校まではきっと、”親”って思ってたけど、自分が大きくなるにつれて、自分の許容範囲を超した、問題にぶち当たることが増えて、そういう時親って絶対力になってくれる。泣きじゃくってても、めちゃイライラしてても、時間なくても。めちゃ素敵な親。昔ユリママがゆってた言葉。子供は親を選べないってゆうけど、子供は親を選んで生まれてきてるって。ほんまそうやと思うなぁ☆ユリの事ほんまに分かってくれてて、1ゆったら10分かるようなユリママはユリのBffやね☆いつもはよく怒ったりしてるけど、それは愛情の裏返しって知ってるで、ユリパパ。インターネットつながってないけど、奈良帰ってきたら喋れるなってゆってくれてるお兄。(○゚ε^○)v ィェィ♪何かそれだけで、あったかくなって、優しくなれる気がする。

まだまだ自分は弱いし、人間的にも出来てない。我慢できんかったり、感情コントロールできんかったり、ってまだまだやけど、成長してるところ。ユリママとユリの合言葉。

「何事もいい加減に」

いつもありがとね

surprised me

On the way back from Northamton with friends, one thing surprised me so much. I was on the bus in front of Wall Mart and bunch of pple were getting on the bus, Almost all carried a lot of stuff that were assumed that they got from Wall Mart cheaply. When one lady tried getting on the bus, suddenly a bus driver said " you can't get on the bus!! Please get off!" Of course the lady was pissed off and asked him the reason. The reason was because she had a full-size mirror. The driver kept saying that that was against the rules. I think he mentioned that mirror would be risky. It would be a distruction for the passengers. But the lady couldn't understand why she were not allowed to get on the bus. How could she get back to UMass without any transportation? She said she paid tuition, she has a right to get on the bus to go back to UMass! That's right. And also she said she couldn't find any rules on the bus about the carrying mirror thing. Eventually, they called 2 policemen and one of the other passenger asked them to give her a ride to UMass, caz the fucking bus driver was not gonna let her on the bus. Policemen checked where and which kinda mirror she got and they got on the policemen's car to go back to UMass. That was kinda interesting. I think the lady was so mentally strong. If I were her, I don't know, maybe would ask somebody to pick me up or return the mirror to get on the bus. But she kept arguing with the bus driver for half an hour. And also If it happened to me in Japan, what would I do? I couldn't stand that I kept everyone on the bus waiting for me if getting of the bus or not. I would feel guilty so much and then I would get off the bus. Some of them were saying that they had classes or someting about the time. But once the lady carring a mirror got on the bus, everyone was proud of her and gave her clapping! That's so American I guess. I've gotta be a good English speaker like her, I mean, argument if I live in this country.

ショッピングの帰りにバス停で沢山の人が乗ってきて、そのうちの一人が全身鏡を持ってバスに乗ろうとしたとき、事件は起こったって感じで、急にバスドライバーが、あなたは乗れません!ってゆいだして、もちろん、ゆわれた子はなんで?って感じになって、およそ30分の議論が始まった。すごかった><;授業料払ってるし、このバスに乗る権利あるとか、鏡わざわざ店に返せって?そんな面倒なこと、やってられんし!意味不明!バスさっさと乗せろ!みたいな会話が。で、結局は警察が来て、警察さんが、その鏡を持ってる女の子をUMassまで送っていった><すごい国です。おそるべしアメリカ人笑 なんだこりゃって思ったさ><;日本ではあまり考えられないことやし、と思って。。。こうしてアメリカは訴訟の国になっていくのだと再確認。てか目の前で見ると迫力あります笑 ははは。ユリもあの女の子くらい英語喋れたらな。

Herbs!

yay! Finally, I started to grow my cute herbs!! I chose Borage, German-Chamomile, Lavender, Strawberry, Basil-Lemon, Vanilla Grass!! Isn't it awesome? That was fun! I love that class, I mean, the lab. I can't wait to see them growing :) hehe lol I also learned propagation! That was hard for me to understand so I think I have to read the textbook><; Oh my. but its okay. I'll do my best :-) And then I went to the Art class that I really like. I had homework about drawing negative space. The beginning of the class, the teacher asked us to put the assignment on the wall, and started to critique. And also he asked us to explain the situation or hardest points, why we chose that to drew or something about the homework. That made me kinda nervous cause I was not sure that I could tell everybody what I was thinking so. Then my turn came, I explained what I drew and the hardest point was. If this was in the last semester, I would run away lol I don't know I could explain everything that I wanted to tell, but at least I did try. I think it's kinda 成長. I really hate to speak in front of people both in Jap and English. but I can try now. yay XD And today I got the luggage from my mom with lots of her love :) yay XD That makes me happy! I got Jap tea bags so I gave some of them to friend :-) I got some letters and new years cards from friends! One of them was from my granma! She drew a pretty dog and said
"Happy new year! I'm glad that you had a good time in US. Here was so cold, today it was snowing. Take care, Love." That's so sweet of her. I like her painting and drawing so much!
My mom is cool and awesome! Thank you very much!! yay XD

basketball

yay XD finally, I played basketball game here America! that was great! Last semester, I really wanted to play basketball but I missed a chance. My friends asked me to play together! On Sunday, we practiced a little bit. They are from Taiwan, Korea and China too. They are so nice :) On Monday, I mean, last night, we had the first game. The opponent are all Americans, much taller than me. We won the game, 28-35. What a low score-game!! hehe lol Every Monday night, we have a game again! At least a month! How great it is!! I should have worked out a lot before that lol I got tired so early. But it was much fun. I'm kinda sad that guys playing can't enter the free-throw zone. So they are not allowed to get in rebound, easy shoot under the goal. Kinda boring, but women have to run. kinda funny. After the game, I asked one guys how tall he was. Caz he was TALL. He was 7 feet high. what?? I'm 5 thou. Sometimes, I had defence of him. Such a funny situation! I'm sure that other guys were laughing how weird it was. That's okay cause we won! I can't wait to play again! I missed some easy shoots so I have to concentrate more. Yet when I get tired, my rate is extremly lower. I can't wait next Monday!!!!!! yay XD

I went to drawing class today. That was much fun! I love that class. Beginning the class, we had a game, what is called, name game. we made a circle and introduced ourselves and next pple have to repeat the name of the all guys who introduced before you. That's a good way to get to know each other :c)

I've gotta read more and go to bed >:-)

classes :c)

What I'm taking in this semester are Comparison of the U.S. and Japanese Economy, Labour in the American economy, Herbs, Spices, and Medicinal Plans, Interpersonal Communication, Drawing. Those are interesting. I'm pretty sure that this semester is gonna be wicked busy. Today I had Herbs, Lab, Econ, and Art. It's harder than expected. But pretty cool. First, I'm taking the herbs class with Kevin. That's quite funny. I had never seen him so serious, I mean taking a lecture, taking note something like that. It didn't seem to be Kevin lol At the lab, we are gonna grow our harbs. It's interesting :c) But I have to remenber bunch of randam words, I mean, the name of the herbs or something technical words. It will take a long time, should be okay.
Second, Econ class, that was little bit harder than last semester's econ class. As long as I read some meterials, no problem, I believe. The assignment dueday will come soon, I should start finishing up pretty soon.
Third, the art class!! That was awesome. I drew a tree that had some green leaves and funny looking. During drawing, I was concentrating in the tree in front of me and my drawing so I couldn't listen what the instructor said, told us to do. But it's so good. The classmates are all nice and lovely! yay XD Good day, I got tired thou. Still interesting, so it's okay :)
Textbooks were so expensive. That drove me crazy. and I have to bring them back to Japan with me to show those stuff. Oh my. I Can't sell them at the end of the semester. I paid like 300 bucks for textbooks and art tools.
This morning, Chiho IMed me and talked for a while. That was so sweet of her. She is gonna go to France! Congratulations! I'll be missing her. I wanted to talk longer but I had classes. I hope I can talk with her soon :)
Today was sunny day. I really love sunny day. That make me happy and give me energy to do something. and also I feel I can think in positive. yay XD I am so weak mentally. I should get over some issues. I can do it :c) and I will :-)

今日は新しいこと沢山!kevinと一緒のハーブの授業に、グリーンハウスに、お絵かき。もう疲れまくってるけど、楽しかった!知らん単語とかわっさわっさでテンパッたけど、楽しい!!日本の学校ではこんな授業ないから、楽しむぞ!
さっきトイレでErinと水の掛け合いっこ。結構びしょびしょになったけど、楽しかった。LarissaとHey Arnold VS spongebobしたし、新しい友達できたし、artクラスの雰囲気も良いし、色々課題とかpaerとか出てきて、こんがらがって来てるけど、今しか出来ないことするべき!って、思ってます。。。何もかも自分次第。

Japanese and American

New semester has began and I'm taking 5,6 classes now. I might drop one of the classes but it's gonna be busy for sure. I've gotta start thinking about my future, after I go back to Japan. That gives me headache.

Recently, sometimes I feel alone, lonely. When I said " what the hell?" My bf said "watch your language!" He asked me not to swear, doesn't want me to use those bad English. Caz I'm Japanese learning English. But do you know how much he swears?! As long as I know that is bad, I think it's not a big problem. I wanna speak English normally, like American. I pay attention to my pronounciaton much more than before. I hope it works. My girl friends use a lot of swear. I don't want them to treat me as soeacial caz I'm from Japan, caz I'm learning English caz I'm an exchange student. Yet when they were talking about the TV shows that they used to watch when they were young, that made me think like I and they are different. Or how about the joke, kidding, sarcasm, humour? Right now, honestly, I don't think I can get those funny things together. It's interesting, it's funny, but I don't know, for me it's just hard to understand. It will take long time to laugh, enjoy that time. I don't think America is the best nor Japan. The more I try to speak like American, The less it works, I guess. I mean, it is not working lol A lot of phrases that I wanna tell them come up to my mind in Japanese. I can't translate them well. I know those are not the same as what I exactly wanna say. That make me sad and feel lonely. Sometimes I even think the different nationality is one of my complexes. I'm kinda disappointed at myself. I can't think in positive way. How long does it take to be a person who I wanna be like? Will I be able to be?

This weekend will be much fun. My friend who took the same econ class last semester asked me to hang out and also for intramural, I'll be playing basketball with guys! That will be much fun :c)
I have to stop thinking too much, worry too much.

新学期に入って、色々騒がしい毎日になってます。早速リーディングだとか、アサイメントの提出だとかの期日チェックに追われて笑 色々いつもみたいに後回しにしてたらあかんと思ってます。あはは。

アメリカ人と一緒にいると楽しい。ジョーダンとか、sarcasmとか。でもやっぱりゆりはまだ基本的に”英語”の感覚が身についてないと思う。前学期の方は、結構英語頭になりかけてたころやったと思うけど、今学期の始めにはまた逆戻り?英語のslungの感覚とか、面白さとか、ユーモアとか、やっぱりアメリカ人と自分は違うのかなって思ったり。過ごしてきた青春時代の違い??それともゆりの英語力の問題?あぁ。あれこれ考えるとしんどくなる一方。でも今はチョット下がり気味の時期みたい。TOEICや漢検とか、就活とか、帰国後のことを考えてる自分と、周りにいる友達と比べると、余計に差を感じる今日この頃。難しいな、人生って。
