Why do I post articles here although I have already had my Japanese blog, too?
I had studied English in the senior high school (all Japanese students must do it), and excelled in that small school of a local town, then I entered the university of foreign language having an big ambition that I would like to become an interpreter or work at a trading company.
At the very beginning of the new life as a uneversity student, I found that many peers were much better than me. They were not only fluent English speakers but also intelligent on interenational economy and politics. I wasand chose the easier way. I evaded from struggling for my dream, and had spent lazy but worked so-so not to fail for all my univ. life.
After graduating, I was in the office work using “only” Japanese language, and six years later I met my husband and got married. I have been a stay at home Mom after my son was born in 2000 and got a daugter in 2004. Taking care of them have been so hard for me that I couldn’t have enough time to think about what I really want to do, or to be.
I knew that first of all I should certainly be a good wife and mother, but at the same time I have been looking for something that make me “me”.
Now, Tatsu, my son was 8 years old and Momo, my daugter is 4. So, I can have a little time to think about myself. Thus, English has come back to me! I don’t mean to try to be an interpreter or some from now, but I want to devote myserlf into what I had given up before.
In this 20 years, the world has totally changed by the progress of internet, so I can know the real and daily lives of all over the world only by turning on my PC. The few wonderful bolgs that I read inspire me so much. I found many ordinary moms over seas doing and worrying as same as Japanese. I can identify with what they say.
So, Reading and Writing such blogs would probably be very good training and help me improve not only my English but also my life.
That is why I started writing this poor English blog.
Thank you for reading!
