Today is the due day for an art portfolio, midterm. That was much harder than expected, took long time. yesterday finally I finished drawing so it's okay ;) Friday i have a 15-minute quiz for econ class but we are suposed to read chp3 to chp 10 besides chp4 for the quiz lol omg it will take forever. its actually about Japanese "economics", but the book is about Japanese culture like bowing, respecting and so on. It should be fine.

recently i have been so stressed out and been depressed again. But try thiking not looking down side but up side( light side?) Everytime I get depressed, its really hard to think like possitive. I realized that everytime the problem that makes me worried, sad, nervous is the same. i have not sloved the same problem all the time. I think I just try not to facing myself, avoiding from hardships. I thought that would be easier. But its not. i was just trying not hard. I try making myself look trying harder. I wanna say thank you to whom make me realize it :) My mom told me not to try so hard to do everything better. Everything goes well. Koichi made me happy all the time. Friends are always here with me and make me laugh lol i have to stop looking down side. that can not make abything better. And then I ban smile again :)

we are back to Okinawa!

We were in Okinawa for 3 days. We all felt like "we are back home, Okinawa!"
Actually this time, where we visited was "Miyako iskand" Which is a part of Okinawa pref, another island. Soooo beautiful. Why the sea in Okinawa is so beautiful?

16th typhoon was coming but we didn't hit any luckily. Great times. Thank you.
so here are some pics.

Enjoy!

bye to 2011 welcome to 2012


Long time no see. I'm alive.
So til 2012, we got 13 hours now. countdown started!!
so let's talk about what has happened in 2011.
One word

Change

This describes 2011 the most.

Some of my best friends are moms now. Getting new family members.
my host mom in Seattle is now grandma and she is loving being granma. Great.
A lot of my friends are wives. Awesome. Beautiful.
One of my coworkers is going to quit the job to go to NYC for her fiance! Amazing.

my age is about to "change" in our lives. What happened to me? Getting old. This is it lol. Yeah really. It takes so long toget better and also its easy for me to get high fever and tiredness. Gotta be tough.

I had a great time in 2011. Amazing. I got to know a lot of ppl and thats the most important thing to me. Thank you everyone. I'm happy and lucky. Again, thank you.

Best Wishes for the New Year.

trip to Ishigaki :)

Wanted to update some of this trip before I forget. ( I won't forget tho)
Me mom and brother went to Ishigaki and Taketomi Island in Okinawa!!
We are so in love with Okinawa <3 Last few years we visited Okinawa island which we really love and have missed so bad. This time, we changed where we go. Ishigaki!


What made me happy in this trip is people who do live there, work there, visiters, everyone! The hotel we stayed at was just super awesome. Their service, hospitality are great. Next time I go somewhere, the first thing I will do is looking for the hotel :)

As you know, I'm not a lucky one for the weather. we were there 2 nights 3 days. The last day was sunny out, first 2 days were not like raining but cloudy, couldn't get to see sunshine, oh well. Still sea, water, sky were AWESOME! I have never seen such a beautiful color of blue. It was awesome. I can't forget the clearness, beauty.

We hope we all can go on a trip like this next year too. This is one my favourite event we do. Such a good one, good memory, fun stuff :) Thank you!

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe

Hey, it's been so long since I updated last time, again.
So earthquakes. Yeah. That is serious now. I really hope everything gets back soon and no one gets hurt anymore. Please. What I can do now is just pray. Please stay safe.

Speaking of the title, the human life is made up of choices. Choices which are made by you, yourself. sometimes its hard, sometimes its easy.

It is not easy for me to make a decision. I just believe that whatever you decide to do, it's your way ahead and you will love the way because it's what you make a decision of. And it will be "the way we were"

Make your own decision!


Sakura season! woohoo @ Sakuranomiya!

kooko

Hey, sup? TGIF. My family get sick all together, I guess my brother is the only one whos doing good. It's been soooo cold like winter back again. I thought spring was around the corner but it wasn't obviously. Hope we all get better soon.

I've read an English book. At the beginning, I thought it would take forever to finish reading bc so many words I don't know are there lol so I was like oh no. But it's an interesting book. New York Times Bestseller. I want to keep reading :) You can enjoy it too :-)

This weekend, I'm going to visit Yuko's house with Emi :) It must be fun. It's always fun to get together with my girls :-) :) :) Emi's due day in like in 2 weeks, almost! wow wow!! I'm sooo excited about it :) She is going to be mommy! yay! Hope she stays healthy and her kid will be a healthy baby :)

Just wanted to write what have been around me lately.
To make sure that being myself is the most important thing in my life. I still do think that I have to try hard and trying hard makes myself a better and cooler person, but just do not want to lose being myself. right? :)

Okay time to bed. Hope we all get better soon. Ciao!

merry christmas!

今日も日本語。
あまり思ったことを言葉にするのが上手でないのですが、今日は思ったことをそのまま文字にしたいと思います。

●自分に期待しているうちはまだ。自分に期待するのと自信は別物。
ゴルフのプロ(コーチ)がゆってくれた言葉。 ※ちなみに最近ようやく始めました。まだコースデビューはしてません。笑。
きっと紙一重なんだろう、この違い。ゴルフで「メンタル」「精神状態」が一番スコアやら調子やらに影響してくるのは、やってみて初めて分かったこと。(バスケでも仕事でもなんでもそうかもしれないけど・・・)日々生活している中でやっぱりどっかで「自分なら・・・」って思ってるところ、あるかも。でもそれは自信ではない。自信を持つことでより良いプレイや仕事が出来るのであって、自分に過剰に期待するってのは違うんだろう。何だかハッと思った瞬間でした。


●切り替えが大事。引きずらない
これもゴルフのプロの言葉。
精神状態をいい状態に保つために必要とのこと。前の上司にも相当ゆってもらった。これは2011年の目標にする予定。自分も周りにも毎日楽しく過ごすためには切り替えが必要。自分にとっていいことばっかりじゃないもん。やっぱ切り替えが大事★☆★


●淡々と仕事してる。頑張ってるのが自然体。
お仕事を同じフロアでさせてもらってるお隣さんからの言葉。大変そうだけど、かわいそうって思ってことはないって。淡々と仕事してて、でもやる気だとか思いとかってのは伝わってくるから頑張ってるのが自然体なんやね、って。何だかじぃぃぃん。自分では淡々と仕事することがちょっと夢だったの。そつなくっていうか、、でも若いうちはがむしゃらしたらいいよ、闘志むき出しにしていいやん!って言ってくれたのは前の上司。この人を見て「そつなく仕事したい」って思った。何だかいつしか知らない間に目指してる姿に近づけてたらいいなぁ。自分ではきっと前進してることは分からないのかな。やっぱ日々前向きに取り組むしかないよね。



●無常

大好きな母親からの言葉。
常は無い。変化するもの。今がずっとずっとずっと続けばいいのに。こんな風に思う私は保守派?
でも母がゆってくれた言葉に思わず涙しそうになった。

「変わらないものが一つだけある。
それは、お兄とゆりに対する私の愛情。」

私ってやっぱ幸せ者。むちゃくちゃ嬉しくて、言葉が出なかった。本当に嬉しい時って反応できないものなのかも。



2010年も大変お世話になりました。2011年もよろしくお願いします。
皆の笑顔が一杯の一年になりますように★☆★☆★☆★
