マイパーソナルATM 将軍家御金蔵 (JUGEMレビュー »)

This is an ATM machine only for you. This design is a Tokugawa shogun version. It has a function of coins discrimination. But it's only for Japanese yen.

Today's lunch for my son

    My son became a high school student in spring this year.
    In Japan,elementary school and junior high school have school lunch,but most of high schools don't have it. So,I have to pack a lunch for my son every morning.

    This photo is today's lunch for my son.
    He is very tall and has much appetite so I have to make heavy lunch. I'm always thinking about menu of tomorrow's lunch. It's a job. He likes meat dish but it's difficult to cook different meat dish every day.

    Today's main menu is sauteed pork with carrot and burdock.
    It's like Kinpira.

    To tell the truth,I'm not good at cooking and can't enjoy it. So,packing lunch every day is really tough for me but I'd like to make a good lunch for him because he is a growing boy.

    It's almost lunch time.
    I hope my son enjoys today's lunch.

      It's been a long time since last time I updated this blog.
      As I wrote before,I've been unmotivated to study English for a long time. But I've been keeping studying English.

      I moved up to the highest level's class about 6 month ago but class mates speak English really well,so I've been feeling hesitate to speak English in front of them.
      Some of my class mates have an experience that they studied English in a foreign country. But I don't have such an experience, I'm always feeling ashamed about my English in my class.

      However,I know I shouldn't be pausing. So,I'll make effort to motivate myself to study English again. I think I can't update this blog frequently. I might be able to update only once or twice a month. But I think keeping doing is really important so I'll keep it up.

      Well,I'll tell you something about my recent events.

      about studying English
        I've been thinking of the way of studying English for a long time. You know,I didn't update my blog since July. Meanwhile,I had been thinking about the way of studying English.

        I noticed that my mind about studying English changed. When I started to study English,I had enjoyed studying English. I used to like to read English books and web sites and also,I enjoyed updating my blog in English.

        But..., somehow,I've not been feeling enjoy studying English for a long time. I don't know why I think so. I can say that my mind that I want to improve my English skill is true and I still like to study English. But now, I think I should change the way of studying English.

        Actually,I'm tired of English lessons. My teacher and class mates are all good people,but I think there's no point if I talk in English with Japanese people at the class. My teacher is a native speaker,but he always speaks slowly and carefully because he is a teacher. His English is really clear and easy to understand. But I think it's impractical. I think I need to get used to the speaking speed of native speakers. I know it's good to go to abroad to study English, but I can't go for some time yet.

        So,I'm looking for something which makes to motivate me to study English.

        I'm sorry, but I may quit this blog.
        If I could find something, I'm going to tell you on this page.

        Life size Gundam
          Summer vacation of students has just started. My sons were still sleeping when I left home for work. Ahh,I envy them. I wish I could go back when I was a student.

          In this summer,I have a plan to go to my husband's parent's house in Kochi pref. We are going to drive to Kochi and it would take about 10 hours. I guess it's tough but travel cost is cheaper than Shinkansen.
          There will be a famous festival called YOSAKOI-MATSURI in Kochi while we're staying in KOCHI. It's really big and exciting festival so I'm really looking forward to it.

          Well,do you have any plans in your summer vacation? If you come to Japan,I recommend you to go to Odaiba in Tokyo. The big festival called "the United States of Odaiba" is now being held until August 31. I hope I go there until the end of the festival but I don't know whether I can take a day off. What I really want to see of this festival is a big Gundam. There is the 18m-high Gundam in Odaiba and it's life size.

          I used to see Gundam on TV when I was a child and I really loved it. Gundam has been popular for a long time and a lot of people love Gundam. This big Gundam doesn't move, but people who had seen it said that they are really impressed with the quality of the work. Hmmm,I really want to see it!

          Anyway,I hope you enjoy your summer vacation!

          I'll try Twitter
            I just started Twitter.

            I don't know whether I can keep it for a long time, or not. But I'm going to twitter in English at least once a day because I have no time to update my blog.

            Please follow me and give me some advices!

            My recent events
              June is almost over,so I have to update my blog at least once. As I said before,I've been unmotivated to study English. However,it's not that I want to quit studying English. I have the feeling that I want to improve my English,yet. So,I'll make effort to keep my blog and update it at least once a month.

              Well,I went to Costco last month. Costco is a famous super market in the US,right? Some of them are in Japan,and I went to the Yokohama's. I've been interested in American products,and sometimes I order some products from an American web site. I always order some lavatory papers,paper towels, detergents,and so on. I like designs of American products and of course, I think quality is good.

              My favorite product is "Downy". You know,it's a fabric softener. I love the smell of "clean breeze ". It makes me relax. Sometimes my friends ask me what kind of fabric softener I use because my clothes smell good. I really wanted to buy some Downys of "clean breeze " at Costco,but unfortunately,they didn't sell them. I bought "aloe and white lilac"and it has also good smell.

              I love Downy but I use "Apple Mango Tango" of "Gain" lately because my friend recommended me "Gain". I really like this smell and because of it I really enjoy the laundry. American detergents are a little bit expensive if you buy them in Japan, but I love these smells so I think it's worth buying.

              Anyway,I'll show you what I bought at Costco.

              The reason I didn't update my blog
                It's been a long time since last time I posted my blog. During that time,I had been thinking of quitting this blog. Because I had been unmotivated to study English.

                Actually,I'm still keeping studying English now. I've been studying English at an English school for four years. I don't mean the school is bad, but I don't feel my English skill is improving. My teacher is really good person,and his lesson is fun. My class mates are also good. But somehow I'm unmotivated.

                I've been thinking why I'm unmotivated to study English. I've been wondering what I want to do. And then,I found the reason. Maybe,I think my goal is too high. I had been wanting to speak English like a native speaker,but I know it's impossible because I'm living in Japan and there's no native speakers around me. I have only one hour a week to speak English at a school.

                My friend living in a foreign country made an offer to have video chatting some times,but I don't have courage. I know I'm inconsistent with what I'm saying. I want to speak English a lot,but I don't have a courage to talk with someone. I want to improve my English skill,but I'm afraid that I might have mistakes in my speaking. I think that's why my English isn't improving. And that's why I'm unmotivated to study English. It's not that I got uninterested in studying English. I think I'm just depressed with myself.

                I'm getting lost in a deep forest but I have to find the way to get out of this forest by myself. I promise you to overcome this problem and will update my blog soon.
