An apple a day keeps the doctor away – 30 day summer challenge 2017

Now, I have to exercise and go on a diet, as I will soon have my annual general check up.
Last year, I was weighed at the clinic while wearing my clothes, but the nurse didn’t subtract any amount from the result. So, my weight was heavier than usual. 🤔 Depending on the clinic, they do like it that, though….Then, I thought I will schedule my exam during spring or summer this year, wearing very thin and light clothes. But it’s already early summer now, my body needs to be toned quickly! So, I started to exercise while studying English. Actually, I wrote this while stretching my legs. 😆

Passing through the first gateway

The result was not very good. But I passed! 😀
Report in detail of my result = total 26/33 points
Reading: 4/5
Q & A: 20/25
Attitude: 2/3
My Q and A result was not bad but the attitude score was not good. I had thought if examinees answered something naturally and with a smile, the examiner would give a perfect score for attitude in the 2nd grade interview. Although maybe I was nervous, I think tried to tell the examiner the answer with a smile even if I couldn’t speak fluently. My face looked strained😬

Sharing is caring

When I go on a trip, even with good friends, I sometimes want to have time alone. At least, I want to have my own shower.

To the victor goes the spoils

The English class after the interview test, my teacher and I celebrated my passing of the 1st test. I prepared a margarita, beer and nuts. As the day was hot, I put some ice in the margarita. My teacher brought a beer, but the beer had 8.4% alcohol. I said, “This class was Breiko~!”

Cold beer, cool clothes, both super

In summer Japan is humid. I like drinking beer during this season.  
There are a lot of beer breweries all over Japan. They make beer using the local water, so even if many beers have the same label, it is said that they have different tastes. I’m not sure, as I have never tried to experiment. Ordinarily, many breweries have free tours, which we can book by internet or phone.

The interview test is over!
It was first come first serve. I got there 20 minutes early and was the 2nd examinee in line. I checked in, turned off my smartphone, put it in a bag provided by the staff, and hung it around my neck. I guess to prohibit recording. I have never hung my phone from my neck, so it felt heavy and it was very annoying. Continue reading

I’m sometimes confused, but I like it

When I travel for many days to countries where the cost of living is high, I often think ‘how do I enjoy as much as possible while saving money.’ Anyway, I prefer this kind of travel over extravagant trips. This time, although I went to Japan Alps Art Festival 2017 as a visitor, I didn’t buy a passport (2,500yen). But I enjoyed myself mainly viewing free art exhibits for the whole day. This is my best kind of day. 🙂

Note:
Honestly, I almost copied and pasted all of each art exhibit explanation from the official page. Because I often don’t completely understand even if I read the explanation of what the art is. 😅 But I like art, unique and cool things…
