Full Disclosure(by Maya)

A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?

No I don’t want it. I am pretty sure that there’re lots of things I don’t need to know about. People doubt and wonder how people think about and sometimes we misunderstand but it’s not all bad. It’s important for each other to know the person


Familial Feasts ( by Maya )

Yesterday was Father’s Day in many countries. If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be — and why? – daily prompt

It’s definitely to my grandma!
My grandma is getting old and I think there aren’t lots of time to spend with her. She always cares about my sister and me.
Since my mother passed away , she always misses my mother.
It’s natural because it’s her daughter. I guess it’s harder to accept the reality as a mother to lose a kid than as a kid.
I always think her life was just a shorter than usual people but she gave us huge love.
My grandma said I wish I could be her. I couldn’t she her.
So I need to send her hope to live. We could get over this reality together.

Last but Not Least (by Maya)


In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?

It should be my mother and my teacher who taught me tennis in junior high for me.

My mother who made my personality and taught me how I should treat people.
She often told me Do Not show your mind on your face.
For example, ,when I get angry, I don’t show my expression on my face.
It’s ok if I am happy or it’s good things but if not, people judge me my impatient and I might pass up a good chance.
This works at office.

My teacher who taught me how important to put on effort.
I went crazy to practice tennis and won games. But the experience links to my persist.

Reason to Believe



In Reason to Believe, Bruce Springsteen sings, “At the end of every hard-earned day / people find some reason to believe.” What’s your reason to believe?

Believing is the best wonder drug when I get nervous.
To respect someone, we need to believe them but there should be an evidence to believe. Believe links to respect and the reason to believe is because of it’s important for me.
Either people or things, that’s important so it makes us believe.
If not, we don’t have to care too much.

When I found my mother is under critical condition, I believed everyday to get better and it didn’t come true but I didn’t lose “hope” at all.
I did what I could do.
Believing always can’t help us but it’s important to calm down and satisfy myself with it.

Daily Prompt: She Drives Me Crazy (by Maya)

It makes me crazy when people wear their shoes in my house. What habit/act drives you crazy? How do you prevent it from happening?~The daily post

My pet peeve is people make noise when they eat.
It might be cultural background and it’s not nice doing it in Japan.
But I guess Korean do that naturally so maybe it’s not bad in their country so I didn’t point it out to except Japanese.
At least I try not to force my culture on foreigners not living in Japan.
