New iPhone 5

Sometimes I feel how great it is to say, “I have no choice!” I mean, new iPhone 5 was released just 5 hours ago. If you ‘google’ “iPhone 5,” you can see thousands of pages showing a specification of new iPhone, I will not put up any photos or a list of data but as an owner of iPhone 4S, I would have been wishy washy about whether to buy this new iPhone 5 or not if I had a choice. In my case, however, my wife who has been using an “ordinary” phone right now has been waiting for my iPhone 4S so I have no choice but to switch to iPhone 5 (which I am very glad :D), I am decided to enjoy getting a new one!

Well, the impression I have got from the first news about this new iPhone is it is a good product. The reason why I would be wishy washy about buying it if I did not have to give my iPhone 4S to my wife is that I will wonder whether I should put in 400 dollars (in Japan maybe a couple of hundred dollars more expensive) for double speed chip, extra height(a little bit wider screen), better lenses of the camera, LTE speed, slim body….Well, in fact, as I am making a list, I kind of start to want it!

And one more thing I have to think about is white or black. I am using a white one now so maybe I should go for a white one…

Oh, today, too, I rode my stationary bike for 70 minutes (I was up a little early maybe because I wanted to know about new iPhone and I was a little excited even though I was not aware of it. I rode 20 miles and sweated a lot. I kind of want to ride outside but on weekdays before going to work, it is too dark, and I have to work 7 days a week this week (Thank God Monday is a national holiday!).

In this latter half of the year I am very busy, so I might not be able to renew my blog everyday but I want to do it as often as possible. I will have a little easier days in Feb and March so I want to manage to survive. Then I can have good rides in spring.


About dw64 (or Masa(aki) or Mark)

I am 52-year-old Japanese male. Ever since I watched Sesame Street when I was VERY young (5 years old?). I fell in love with American English and culture. I learned English hard and now I am teaching it. Then when I was 18, I had an opportunity to stay with an American family in Shell Knob, Missouri and I asked them to educate me as an American kid. So they taught me the American way and even my taste for food has changed completely so I call this rebirth! Then when I was 30 (I visited the U.S. several times but they were short stays), I joined the MA course in teaching English of graduate school in Vermont. I stayed about 10 months there (it was an intensive course). I stayed in a dorm and learned a lot inside and outside of classrooms. I got all the credits but I failed because of the difference in the context between the U.S. and JAPAN cuz it is so hard to teach English in The way I learned in the course because in Japan, teaching is about understanding grammar and structure in Japanese. But my journey does not end here. Last year I was admitted the CELTA course in NYC where I worked hard and got this certificate that certifies that I had finished the course and qualified to teach English to people who want learn English as a second language by Cambridge University standard. So if you are one of those people, send me a message and I can help you learn American English (I got this at Cambridge but basically they teach different English depending on location). Why did I pick NYC? Well, I am a huge fan of American everything! I live the country even when that demagogue guy is the President so I am an authentic fan of it. I mean, I love the U.S. more than anything in this world. There was a guy who loved Japan so much so after he retired he came to Japan and became a citizen. I want to do the same, actually. So now I am so into it, I listen to NYC CBS radio 880 all the time except when I watch dramas on Netflix, HBO or HULLU or read paperbacks on Kindle (read 70 books in the last two years). And then I am writing in English. I hope to be able to write something publishable in the future but I have to learn some more. As for my learning, I have almost done usual stuff so now I decide to do things that native speakers who wish to be writers will do. At least I learned 8000 words and phrases in the last couple years and I confirmed that I know more than 22000 words, which is tantamount to the number of words American graduate school students have. Well I might talk about these things, too, but I will talk about my favorite things in this blog. I love American dramas. I love the ones with some sci-fi portion in it. Like, from HULU, Gotham, Lucifer, Fringe, etc. I love good comedies so I love Seinfeld, SNL and night shows. Netflix? Luke Cage, Daredevil, and other defenders. I love legends of tomorrow, too. HBO, Game of Thrones!! And I also loved Night of and West World. I also might talk about cycling (road biking) and all other stuff! Please feel free to comment!

    If Softbank has a trade in program, I might just do it, but since I’ve got another full year on my contract…I don’t think I will!

  2. Well, 5 does not seem to have that much precedence over 4S so it is not so bad to stick to 4S. In my case my wife wants mine and that is the main reason. Hope new LTE band and A6 chip can accelerate iPhone a bit and new wide screen makes it easier to type, though. BTW, “au” has this 10500 yen rebate program for renewal and 21000 yen rebate for MNP until September 24th.
