Romeo and Juliet 

2006年01月18日(水) 23時40分
I read Romeo and Juliet in order to write a report.

I gave this book 2/5 stars because this story has an unhappy ending.
Both Romeo and Juliet dead at the end of this story, so I felt sad after reading the story.
I wanted the author to write happy ending.
I like happy ending love stories and want to read them.
Needless to say that I don’t like this story because of their death.
If I were Shakespeare as an author of this story, Romeo and Juliet could run away from the city or their families would permit their marriage at the end of the story.

As for me, I don’t want to commit suicide, but I envy Romeo and Juliet because of their deep and true love.
I want to meet a man like Romeo and I want to be a woman like Juliet.
Most of the readers of this book must think so.
However, I’m not sure why they felt in love so quickly except the reason of their attractive appearance.
I don’t want to think that appearance is the most important factor when people fall in love.

To my surprise, compared to translation written in Japanese, It is easy to understand this book written in English.
Before reading this book, I thought the book would be difficult for me to understand, so I bought a Japanese translation then I started to read it.
However, it was written in old and unnatural Japanese language and difficult to understand for me.
That is why I recommend my friends to read this English book instead of Japanese translation in order to improve English reading skill.
However, If you are looking for a book to enjoy reading or to spend time by reading at ease, I don’t recommend the sad story to read.
You will feel worse after reading like me.
I’m ashamed to say that I had never read the famous love story before, so I didn’t know what happened at the ending of this story.
I just knew a famous line ‘Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why is your name Romeo?’, so I believed that the story has happy ending.

my hair color

Today, I took a class at English conversation school called NCB English language institute.
I bleached my hair yesterday, so I worried about my hair color.

Some of my English teachers told me they couldn’t understand why Japanese people want to change hair color before.
They don’t want to change their hair color, but they like Japanese natural black hair.

Cellular phones 

2006年01月15日(日) 4時16分
I wrote an essay about cellular phones as my homework.
What do you think about them?

Cellular phones have e-mail system.
Thanks to high quality of them, we can send e-mail and receive it at any time anywhere.
E-mail is faster, cheaper, and easier than calls and mails.
However, because of them, there are problems.

First of all, the frequency of telephone calls and taking letters to the post have been decreasing.
When I want to get in touch with my friends, I don’t call and I don’t write a letter, but I send only 1 word, “hima? (Have you got a spare moment?)”, by e-mail.
In addition, I don’t need to look for call boxes out side.
Therefore, call boxes and telephone cards will disappear from towns in the future.

Second, the number of latecomers has been increasing.
As for me, I don’t want to be late, so I tend to be waiting for someone coming.
When my friends gave me promise to be in front of station at 1 p.m., they often send e-mail at 1 p.m. in order to apologize for their lateness.
“I’m sorry! I will be 10 minutes late for promise.”
At the time, they are not latecomers, because they are on modified time.

Finally, we can’t pretend to be out or to be not in.
we think friends are always with their cellular phones, so we believe that they can receive e-mails and reply to them at any time.
My father doesn’t have cellular phone, and he told me that cellular phones seem to restrain us from our liberty.
If there are no cellular phones, we can make excuse, “I’m sorry, but I was out yesterday.”
As for me, I have a cellular phones, so I sometimes make excuse “I’m sorry, but I think my cellular phone was out of range at that time.”

Surely, cellular phones are convenient tools to contact friends easily.
However, sometimes we are annoyed with unreserved mails, and then we feel that we are restricted by cellular phones.

(I have to prepare for a French test today.)

She doesn’t love him, though she likes him.

Imagine this situation.

There are two friends of mine.
He is in love with her.
On the other hand, she doesn’t love him, though she likes him very much.
It seems that they are good friends each other.

One day, he told her that he loves her and wants to be her boy friend by email.
Then, she got into a panic!
She didn’t know his feeling.

She couldn’t reply to his email at that time, and she sent an email to me instead.
She had no idea how to refuse.
Of course, I knew his feeling.
Also, I knew her feeling.
She doesn’t love him, but she doesn’t want to lose him as a good friend.

Lastly, she sent an email to him.
Since then they are trying to avoid each other.

What should I do?
Waht can I do for them?

Spring seems to be here.

Spring seems to be here.
Surely, it is pretty cold today, but it’s getting warmer and warmer around me.

Recently, I often heard that my friends started to go together with their boy friend!
Boy friend! I mean their STEADY!

Some of them have their boy friend as their FIRST BOY FRIEND!
However, they said, “I would never have any boy friend.” when I met them before.

Needless to say, they seem to be happy.
Also, they seem to have a lot of confidence.

I often said to them "I want to have my boy friend, so I envy you!"
I'm not certain whether I envy them or not.

the Communicative English Class 

2006年01月11日(水) 3時18分
Today (yesterday?) I was really nervous, because I had to give a presentation in the Communicative English class at the university.

There are 12 people in the class, and all of us had to do it in stead of taking an examination during this semester.
It was tough for me.
I’m shy!
In addition, my teacher was recording on her video during our presentations.

My presentation topic was HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT.

I chose this topic because of 2 reasons.
First of all, I 'm on a diet, so needless to say I want to lose weight.
Second, I think that people are interested in this topic.

I investigated the date whether people are satisfied with their body or not, the reasons why do, especially women, want to be slimmer in spite of being a standard weight and the good methods for losing weight or staying at a healthy weight.

In my conclusion, both women and men are not satisfied with their weight.
Mass media have a great influence on people.
Then, longing for actress on TV cause the mistaken idea.
If you want to lose weight, restriction of meals, exercise and information about calories are important.
However, you shouldn't forget that there is nothing more precious than health.

I couldn't speak English fluently, but I did my best.

At the end of the class, we gave a bouquet to her.
Surely she is a really strict teacher, but I like her and the classmate.

I decided to keep a diary in English.

Today, I decided to keep a diary in English.
I want to improve my writing skill.
I believe I can do it.

Now, I’m a university student, and my major is English.
Of course, I like English.

To tell the truth, I hated English.
When I was a high school student, I was poor at English.
I didn’t want to read English.
I didn’t want to hear English.
I couldn’t speak English.
I couldn’t understand English.
…. Etc.

However, I changed my mind.
Then, I want to keep a diary in English.
