BGM: Prefab Sprout - We Let The Stars Go
I worked late today. At the offline meeting I had yesterday, the other members gave me some papers (an article from newspaper, a paper of the homework, etc.) so I decided to put them together as one file. At a DAISO shop in AEON (a famous Japanese group which sells us numerous things really cheaply,) I bought a blue file book.
This morning, I wrote a paper for tomorrow's English class as a homework article. On that paper, I told the teachers about the passing away of an Indonesian friend I've experienced. Indeed, it must be too serious/heavy for us to enjoy casually, but it seemed for me that all I could write must have been that thing only... so I wrote it as honestly as I could.
Remembering her kindness, and also the memories with her, I can remind of various people, various sincere friends I've met (although my autistic brain must have forgotten most of them eventually.) Thinking about these connections I can have built in this life, in the end I face the fact that how this life of us can have a really profound enigma/wonder. As Prefab Sprout sings - Life's a miracle.
After writing that homework paper, I read a scrap copy of newspaper I had got yesterday, which tells me that how difficult for the Japanese people to learn English to become fluently - because English and Japanese are really, completely different languages (The letters themselves, pronunciations, grammars, etc.) Yes, I can see this article's opinion, and I still wonder if my English is really good or bad - even though some people say mine is really formal as AI's automatic writings (but I OFTEN make mistakes!)
That article also tells me various ancient Japanese intellectuals' passion about/for the education of English. I remember the passion once I had - I have to ask this to me (I quote Paul Weller.) "Has My Fire Really Gone Out?" Yes, I actually thought that I want to become a person as a bridge between this city's people and foreign ones. I remember it - and think this now. I might have been born in this world to become that kind of bridge.
