a0018711_21291661.jpgHi, someone. How's it going? How's your day? It was a normal day for me today. But it means I had a good day.

I got up at 4:30 am this morning and prepared a lunch while had breakfast. Although it was raining in this morning, I went work by bicycle. Although I live in Yokohama, I work in Kawasaki. There's not so far place, indeed, near from my home. About 20 minutes by bicycle.

I work for a noodle shop in the train station and the shop opens at 6 every morning. A great many business men come there to have noodle for breakfast or lunch. We cook soba (buckwheat noodles), udon and curry. I had those for lunch at first, but I wearied of them. However, can you believe that some people come to our shop to have soba every day? And besides acutually, it's not a couple of people, maybe over 30 people. Anyway, I can't became to like soba like them. And I have to save money to be alive in Yokohama. That's why I bring my lunch everyday. By the way, there are about 800 people come to our shop to have noodle everyday while I work there, from 6 am to 2 pm.

Yeah, it's a really great many people, ay? Our shop is Japanese train station style. There are no chairs, no tables, and quite small. There are only 3 or 4 shop assistants all the time the shop opens. Everybody has noodle while standing. Although there is a counter along the wall, our shop is quite small. That's why when there are so many people in the shop, it looks in a train. And they are all eating. The sight is quite nice. I love it though I have to work hard whenever I can see the sight, you know.

a0018711_2130347.jpgAfter work, I came back home and went to the boxing gym. Well, that is the reason I work for the noodle shop, and also the reason I came to Yokohama. Today, I trained at the gym from 3:30 to 5:30. And afterwards, I went to supermarket to get some food to be alive. And came back home, went running, came back, had shower, had dinner, and now I am typing this journal.

Last Sunday, I had TOEIC which kinds of an exam of English. Although I haven't kept studying English after I left New Zealand, I decided to study English again. Ah, it's not good. I decided to enjoy English again. In New Zealand, I haven't studied English. I've just enjoyed it. Anyway, I will renew this website once a week from now, maybe. And I'll reply many e-mails which I've got from my friends, within a month, maybe.

Although it was a normal day, it became unusual because I renewed this website now. Then, see you someday.

a0018711_1201316.jpgHello, somebody. How's it going? I'm pretty good. But here is a bit cold. I prefer summer. Ah, I want the warm sunbeam of New Zealand. New Year's Eve, it was snow in Yokohama. Although I don't really dislike snow, I like a warm day. Well, I think many Japanese have become to hate summer since last summer. I hear it was burning these days. Then, I had winter days in New Zealand, you know.

Well, I write what I've been doing in Japan today. On e-mails, lots of my friends ask me,
"What do you do?"
And some of them guessed that I worked for a big company. Unfortunately I don't. And I won't do it so far. Since last October, I've worked at many places and have quitted some of these. Although I had been tired these days, also I'd been enjoying my new life. That was like study through experience. I saw some behind-the-scenes of communities. Some of them gave me good knowledge or experience but there were also something disappointed me. Then, I had to face dark real. These days, many times, I thought
"Where am I now?"
"Who are they in front of me?"
"Why am I here?"
"What am I doing?"
"For what?"

The day I came back from NZ, on the train from Narita airport, I saw lots of Japanese who looked really exhausted. Then, I felt that I'd already become a stranger.

That is why (I hope you see what I mean vaguely), it's often difficult for me to work at Japanese community. But I think it's easy to select a job all the better for that. Finally, I started to work at small noodle shop in a train station last month.

I work there usually from 6am to 2pm. After work, I go back home and go to a boxing gym to train. Actually, I moved to Yokohama to go to the boxing gym. There is very comfortable place for me, stranger.

Even now, I often feel that I can't adapt myself to Japanese community. But actually I like it. I mean what I am a stranger. I like my style. And so I'll make my original story. Although it seems quite different that my life in Japan and in New Zealand, my style doesn't change. I've had mysterious days as ever. Just like as I lived in NZ. I enjoy it. I like trying. I am just curious. And that is my life.

How about your life? How was your day?
