Now it is so cold in Japan but when I look at the snowing scenes in Dallas (wow!), maybe the city I am living in is not half bad in terms of coldness.
Well, at the outset, I was deeming this site as kind of like the site I am writing about my cycling life but things started change. I would say it was not a gradual change but more of an abrupt one, sort of out of the blue, apropos of nothing.
As I wrote before, when I had become forty eight years old and entered into this last cycle of 12-year-cycle in a Chinese zodiac system (I was born in the year of dragon and I feel really fortuitous because it is kind of cool to say “I was born in the year of the dragon!”), I had a strong urge to do something. I wanted to be ambitious and want to achieve something. Then I have started to wonder what it is that I can round up my life with? Should my life end just here right now, what would I say my life was about?
When I came out through that door of Dulles International AIrpot to step on the land of the United States of America, when I looked up at the Skyscraper of NY and listened to the people talking to each other in English, I felt was galvanized. I was exuberant! Yes, it is English.
So from now on (I am still busy for a while so it will be a bit late), I would like to make this blog a place I can write about anything or should I say I will opine just about everything.
Of course I will not exclude cycling stories. That is one topic I will keep on writing about. It was the road biker talks about biking and sometimes other stuff. From now on, it is one Japanese guy crazy about learning American English, talks about many things and sometimes talks about cycling.
I have got a feeling that I write a lot about Japanese culture (this is also one topic that I wrote about multiple times before) and the Japanese English education since I am an English teacher. I mainly write not so much as from a professional’s perspective (where I am strongly thinking about the readers) as just one individual (Just write more freely what I want to say. I would say it would be intriguing for those who want to know something about Japanese culture and maybe teaching English situation. If you are interested in teaching English and spend some time in Japan, If you have any questions, once again, don’t hesitate to ask! I like answering those questions. It also helps me improve my English and it is not half bad! I will write about what makes me happy and sometime what grates on me, vexes me or something exasperates me.
So if you want to know about Japan, look no further and don’t be surprised when the title of this site is changed. I am thinking about the title right now.
But I am regret to say, 10 more days, I have to spend most of my time taking care of the laborious work I have been allotted. Hope to update my site one or two times and maybe give a new title to my new site. For the time being, I am thinking about “Correct me if I am wrong,” “Apropos of nothing” and so on… I am a bad title maker.
