雑談

marvelous fact

Now, it has become April! What do you make an association of ideas in April. In my case, definitely, that is the event of 1st in April; April Fools Dayチュー.

As you may know, I love periodic seasonal events, especially, festivals. At that days, I can be a stupid and crazy manあかんべー, which is never seen normally.

In spite of my bitter experience, I told a lie to somebody as I do every year. Usually, I'm always the side of being lied to by, so I get addicted of their face when they find that they are lied to by meチュー.

Yesterday, an interesting story was posted on a website in Holland. It is too hard笑い汗 to explain in English so that I post the article in Japanese.

オランダ閣僚に労働時間制限

先週の金曜日、社会省のドナー大臣は、閣僚の多くが夜中に仕事をしていることに対し、労働局からの罰金が課せられる可能性が高いと述べた。
このため閣僚および次官に向け、4月1日から「働く時間」と「休む時間」を政府が規定すると提案したと、全国紙テレグラーフ紙に語った。ドナー大臣の提案した規定は、最高で1週間に7日、1日に24時間働いてもいい。また、国会での討論中に「休む時間」をとっていいというもの。

実はこれは、大臣のエープルフールのジョークであったことが後に判明したが、この規定を本気にした閣僚が何人かいたという。
Notice: quoted from "portfolio".


If it were in Japan, the minister would be bashed by medias, and would be fired. One of what I have learned during my stay in Holland is that we, Japanese people, should have breadth of mind in our life.

Today, for our building's complexes, we had an opening ceremony at ground floor, though they seem to be under construction.

First, a managing director who is Dutch, spoke greetings in Dutch. Of course, I could not understand anything. Then, next to me, a woman, a master student from Italy, requested to me agreement of her complaint; why does he speak in Dutch at the reception for international students? We grooved to talk about their mad mouth笑顔汗アウト, and became friendly音符. You think that you have capable of a foreign language if you can say one's tongue in it, don't you?

When we try to start to drink乾杯, I asked her how to say "Cheers" in Italy. When I heard the pronunciation, I laughed at it. That means kinds of word that can not be broadcasted through TV in Japaneseドキドキ小汗; If you want to know, please search by yourselfすいません. Though I have already known some words which has interesting effects for us, it rang my bell after a long interval.

However, only she, Italian, could have great interest of it; I was impressed. I taught it to her in a roundabout way, and then, she promised to me that when she has a party, she will show the meaning of it to her friends電球. Therefore I can't stop itびっくり 続きを読む

It might be ineffectual time, but forgive meすいません. Possibility for time travel are referred here.

Last time, though I could go in past time, this time, I could have been beyond time and space again likely to "back to the future's world"びっくりびっくり

All I want to mention is that we began day-light saving time; we have 7 hours time lag between Netherland and Japan.

To change the subject, day by day, the climate is getting warmer. Yesterday, on the return road of shopping, I found a flower shop. Then I found that prices of flowers are much cheaper than that of Japanお金びっくり Among them, after long being bothered, I bought a bouquet of tulipチューリップ. It contained 10 flowers of tulipチューリップ, and is 3 Euros困った電球 I could figure out why many people who bought a bouquet after their work are often seenクラッカー.


Without saying anything, the shop keeper tied it up. I got sad泣く, but I would like to be wont to do this style in the futureウインク.

折り返し地点(決意表明)

最近更新がとまっていてすみませんすいません今日は久々に日本語で書こうと思います。普段の出来事なら英語でもいいですが、やっぱりこういう気持ちの中のことは日本語じゃないと表現しきれないからね。

今日3月7日(日本は8日)で、ちょうど留学も折り返し地点に来たことになります。つまり留学も6か月経過したことになります。こういうのって考え方の問題でしょうがもう6か月なのか、まだ6ヵ月なのか。私の気持ちの中ではどちらかというと今は前者の方が若干強くなってきました。

**************************


振り返ってみるとこの半年はいろんなことがありました。今振り返ると結構エイヤ!でここに来たなあと自分で自分に苦笑いすら出てきます。家もない、知り合いもいない(正確にはいますが)、時も読めない、英語ですら満足にしゃべれない状況で単身のりこんだオランダ。大使館どころか、市役所の手続きだって日本ですらしたことないアマチャンが一人で乗り込んでて来たんだから冷静になると笑えます(笑)

大学だって最初は周りのレベルの高さすら知らなかった。そのうちレベルの高さに愕然とした。そして今はそのレベルの高さが面白くて面白くて仕方なくなってきた。

知り合いもだいぶ増えた。オランダ人、中国人、インドネシア人、タイ人、チェコ人、スペイン人、イタリア人、トルコ人、フランス人・・・そして日本人。私と同じ年齢層の人は少ないが、それでも人生の先輩や親切にしてくれる方たちに囲まれて、私はものすごく幸せです。偶然から生まれたこの出会いを私は一生大切にしたいと思います。

この半年は精力的に遊んだ。これまでオランダを含め7カ国回った。うん、絶対帰ったら遊びすぎと言われそうですが、それでもこれは絶対私の今後の糧にいなると言い張るつもりです笑い汗


*******************



もちろん、日本を発つ前に思い描いていたことがすべてがうまくいってるわけではありません。できてないなあ、ダメだなあと思うことはたくさんあります。でも、この半年でいろいろ悩み、もがき、行動した結果、少しずつ、内面的にも外面的にも(ひょっとしたら身長も!?と望む笑顔汗変わリ始めたのは紛れもない事実だと思います。

事実は事実として受け止める。でも言わずもがなここで満足する気は毛頭ありません。飛行機に乗るその瞬間まで私はこの留学で出来る限りのことをして、成長し続けますびっくり同じことをするのでも気持の持ちようでその効果が全然違うことは良く分かっているからね電球半年経っての再度自分で自分への決意表明でした。

study trip JAPAN

Nowadays, we can see this advertisement at an elevator in civil engineering building. This is general information for the students who can participate in a study trip organized by Betondispuut; students association planning for field trip, often.

I am not involved so I am not sure the detail, but they should not give away the perfect opportunity on such low cost(about 120,000 yen)びっくり Recall the idea that I mentioned, when you will see tall people look like Dutch guys at the period in Japan*笑顔汗(*Note: I will not be there at that time.)

St. Valetine's day etc...

Half of the February has already passed but I do not have anything specials you may want to know.笑顔汗 Why not to suppose that nothing special indicates I am doing wellはてなにっこり

As you know, the day before yesterday, we had St. Valentine's day; the least favorite day in a yearびっくり汗 In Japan, from what I have heard, this year, they had tendency for giving chocolates to opposite directionsドキドキ小; from a man to a woman. As well all known, in Western countries, they change their gifts each other. Before the day, we, my Dutch friend and me, talked about the difference of the custom. We recognized both advantages, and then he let me know his ideas he would do on St. Valentine's day. He said he would scatter rose petals花 on their bed!!! How coolびっくりびっくりキラキラ

I have an another story what's cool. My friend, I met when I was a junior high school student, filed their marriage papers at the dateクラッカー拍手びっくりびっくり He is as same age as me. I may never need to feel pressed, but I envy him. Moreover, at the same time, I am anxious my age when I will be able to do. (I will be a student at least for 2 years, and what will I do furthermore??ショック)

*************************************************


Nowadays, I sometimes contact some friends who wants to come to Holland音符. That makes me happy more than anything. If I were them, I would never miss the favourable chance!(ads笑顔汗) I have some progresses for my research phases, so my daily life is doing wellOK.

On the three former articles, as I showed you some concerns, in addition, I have another anxiousness, especially for my health泣く; lumbar pain and weakening eyesight. The reason, perhaps, why it happens is that I always focus on the close objects, for instance the display of PC and papers on my desk for a long time on a day, and keep a poor posture.ショックThey must be absolutely God's revelations that I should take rest for going around European countries for sightseeingびっくりびっくり汗

I must try to keep in mind that I take a appropriate rest.鐘
