home alone 2

Today was my last working day of the year. All we had to do was to clean up the office and we finished it before noon. As I wrote I started my current job about 6 months ago and it was my first time to work at office, since my previous job was the shop clark I have never experienced the new year holiday since I graduated from school. I think it is a very interesting experience.

For this reason, I'm home now. I'm happy for my dog, since I had to leave her at home alone during daytime hours in this three days. I had been worrying her while one that time.

home alone


This morning, I had to leave my dog home alone, since the other family members have gone for a trip to Okinawa and I also had to go to work. I felt very sorry for her, but it couldn't be helped. She had been alone until the evening.

The moment I came back home from work and opened the door, she jumped out of it with unsatisfied look. After that she rampered around, venting her frustlation. Finally, she got calm and is now sleeping beside me Actually, she's got two more days to be in the house alone .

By the way, I watched a TV program about a polar bear baby yesterday. It was the only polar bear which had been grown up by a human, since to raise polar bear baby is almost impossible because it has no resistance to virus. There is almost no virus in arctic weather.

The little bear in white wool was as cute as a stuffed animal. On top of that, it was moving. However, this story had a sad ending. The bear was separated from the keeper who had raised her, because her weight became 300kg in the end. There was a possibility of hurting the keeper even if she had no intention. She was left in the cage alone.

my brother

Yesterday, my younger brother came back home, stayed for a day and went back to his boarding house this morning. He's now working in a remote town.

For months, he had been thinking of quitting his job, since the job was very hard. The company forced the employees work overtime without salary. Sometimes my brother had to work overtime for more than 5 hours. Of course it was illegal. Some of his colleagues tipped abput it to the labor standards office and the situation was improved. It seems that he decided to keep his job.

Meantime, I have no ovrtime work. I come back home at around five every day. On top of that, I'm thinking of becoming a freelance worker. He was a little disgusted but a little jealous of me.

Otter's festival


The title of the article "Otter's festival" is Japanese proverb that means to display someone's collection to show off. It derives from the fact that the otters lay out the fishes they caught by the river.

Finally, I received the lens I had ordered about one month ago. I had been waiting for its arrival because it was out of stock. The problem is I still have no time to use it.

no time

I've indulged myself and neglected this diary for a while. As you know, last week I started taking an English conversation class. On top of that, I've got two more websites to take care of. I'm definitely short of time.

I've got to find a way to get over all of them. I would like to say. the online English class I'm now taking is really good and useful. The only thing that I'm unsatisfied with is its lesson hours. It's only 45 minutes, I think it's too short. That's why I took two lessons today. I hope my English will improve.

online lesson

I started taking an online English lesson on Friday. I thought it was really useful.
You can take 45 minutes of lessons for 30 times a month. The teachers are all from the world and you can take class whenever you want. On top of that, you can also use the free web chat in which you can talk with other students in the world.

I had been thinking if it's really possible to acquire communication abilities in English without going abroad for a long time. Having taken the class in the internet, I thought it might be possible.

The most inportant thing for learning another language is to create the environment in which you must use the language. By using that online lesson, you can realize it. Actually, this was provided by the advance of technology of internet. I never imagined that such a day would come.

sad story

About a week ago, I saw a TV program about a dog. The dog appeared in it was a Labrador retriever. As you know well, there are two colors of Labs, one is black and yellow is another. This one was black.

This dog was much-loved by her family of owner, especially the father cherished the dog among others. Every day, he took her a walk for more than 2 hours after coming back home. You believe it? it's two hours.

However, all of a sudden the father caught a serious illness and after a while he passed away at the age of late 50s.

The moment he died, the dog started changing her color. Her hair turned white in a moment. She became completely white in a year. The veterinarian said he had never met such cases before that.

It's been 3 years since father's death and a few, black hair began to glow again. The doughter said she want to see the dog in black again.

I heard such a sad story.
