Oasis during Summer.

‘I think that’s all,’ I said to classmates and teacher this morning. Suddenly they burst into laugh shortly. That is our success, lol. For we made the last page funny, that da term ‘Thank you’ and a photo are spinning. We included like American joke. I had to think of our details again after it. I mean, ours was a little bit shorter than ten minutes when we can present.

Professor Readon is the first to attend SS class in 30 days. He visited Taiwan and other Asian countries, of course, for business. He said he’s thinking about Orientalism anytime anywhere, lol. Today he stated to us about Occidentalism, especially how to translate peoples’ voice by themselves. He called it da power of language. I could make sense it well and thought of Japanese Identity & Nationalism.

I helped my friend James, who majors in Japanese at PSU, teaching his assignment. He’s reading Japanese poems; Misuzu Kaneko, Shuntaro Tanikawa. I consider it difficult to translate both Japanese form English and English from Japanes. Coffee Hour is held every Wednesday, joining lots of international students.

Today is Naoko’s Birthday, so we celebrated her at Ondine dorm with our mouth full by ice-cream cake, lol. I presented her a yellow mug cup, giving her the feeling of happiness.

今日何考えたかなぁ~。ぁ~、最近「夏休み」が待ち遠しくて仕方ないんだよね。というのも、Summer Termが終わったら、LAに行って、グランドキャニオン行って、ベガス堪能してっていう計画を立ててるのだぁ。旅のお供は、高校時代からのトモダチ、必然的に大学も同じなんだがw。やつらは2人で、海を渡ってきてくれる。
んで、この旅が終わっても、まだまだ休みは続くから、ヨーロッパに行こうと考えてる。フツーに考えて、JPNからの旅費よりも安く付くのは目に見えてる。だがら、今しかないのだ。ついでというか、これがホントの目的なんだけど、9月からスペインのバレンシア大学に留学する杉田(同じ高校卒)に会いに行く。スペインさいこーだね。サクラダファミリアなんて、言葉だけでゾクゾクする。んで、現段階では、Air Ticketを探してる。先のLAは、日本の2人次第なんだが、いかんせんヨーロッパは、どの国の、どの都市の、どの空港に行くのが一番安いのか、調べるのが大変。マジで、手探り状態が続いてる(泪)。
早稲田に帰って、4年生の夏はドイツにいってWorld Cup 2006の雰囲気を味わってくる予定。うん、これまた楽しそう。絶対実現させてやる。
