There are some times when we have to choose enter one way or the other in our life. I think it is true. However especially women always choose the alternative. Women have to give up full time job to parents association meetings. They have to be absent from work when their children get sick. Their coworkers have to work late and complain it is unfair because spinsterhood always have to work harder than them. Woring women always choose work or privacy and sacrifice their life. 

I don’t want to sacrifice my life. I want to enjoy my life. Am I greedy?

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

I read a book “rich dad, poor dad” again recently. 

I have read it about fifteen years ago but I thought it was useless for me, because I was not interested in entrepreneur if not real estate. It was the best seller in Japan and most of us wanted to know how Robert Kiyosaki became rich from it in those days.

Now I am still poor and can’t get rid of rat race yet. Most of Japanese put their school background first and try to enter their children in more famous school. Old customs die hard. Can I change old customs and get rid of rat race?

Do you like yourself?

Sometimes I despise myself. 

I recognize I have good friends. They help me.

I don’t like unreliable myself. I’d like to become more respectable person.

I’m wondering how I can become an excellent and gentle person.

Ability and Efforts

Yesterday I went to a concert of Tatsuro Yamashita. He has a genius for music but he doesn’t like to sing in big concert halls.  He told he’d like to work with his expectations realistic. He is a first-class musician. I think he wastes his talent. But it is his belief.
I’d like to succeed as a pharmacist. But now I recognize it is impossible. I can’t even become a second-class one. I’m lacking in a capacity for communication, memory analysis and conclusion.

They say my efforts will be rewarded in the long run, is it right?
Should I content with a third-class one as little people?

World Heritage Site

TV announced World heritage site in  Japan today. It was houses with a ratter roof and located in Gokayama Suganuma, Toyama, Japan. I haven’t heard the houses but now they are illuminated at night as a restrictive event. I’d like to visit there if I have time. 

Pasta with fermented soybeans

Fermented soybeans, which we call natto in Japanese, are healthy and useful food in Japan. People living in some area in Japan don’t like it. As my parents were born in the area, I hadn’t had natto at home. When I had natto at the first time at a hotel, I couldn’t adapt myself to the stringy food. Now natto is one of my dislike food.

I sometimes cook pasta with natto. I give soy a bit source to the pasta. It changes unexpected nice pasta. 

Would you like to try it?

Loser? Winner?

Most of us are losers. We wish we are talented and have a rich life. However we notice soon that we are commonplace and never become winners.

We argue against winners that not all winners are happy. At the same time, we know we give up our dreams because we are short of money and in the course we forget what we want. 

I’m between marriages, no kids and don’t have enough money. I’m a loser in life, probably. 

I have forgotten what I wanted. 

Can the young conquer the poverty?

Those were the day!  We always say so and deny the present. When I was a child, I believed that my school background became a chance to get better life in future even even if my family was poor. Nowadays many Japanese believe it and study hard to enter in well-known university. 

However many young people can’t get regular jobs and they are difficult for getting out of the poverty. The poor is quite hard to come from behind in life. They have to give up their dream even if they have unusual ability.

In Japan the poor can’t support theirselves. They can’t rent apartments and live in net cafe. Some of them lose home and settle in parks. 

The others work so hard that they suffer from mental disorder. They have to quit their jobs. However nobody relieve them. Of course they can live on welfare but it is quite hard for the young. Indeed the young suicides are increasing. 

The specialists report one of effective ways is to supply them houses. I am not rich but I think I can do something to help them.  I don’t have any good ideas yet. 

I don’t help them when they are asking for our help, while I take part in the party.

Asakusa in Tokyo, japan


Yesterday I visited at Asakusa in Tokyo, Japan. The streets were congested with lots of tourists because of three holidays in a row.

Asakusa is famous for sweets too and I took part in a sweets tour yesterday. I enjoyed with the tour, but I had to put up with hay fever all day.

Today I hesitate if I go out. I like the spring but have to stand hay fever.
