This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
Today is my big sister's, YUKO's 25th birthday. Happy birthday YUKO. She is gonna get married in this April, so this birth day the last birth day as a single.
I hope I can go back Japan and attend the wedding party. Actually, however, I am afraid I might have an exam on the very day of wedding...I hope not... Speaking of the weddings, today is also important day for my senior teammate of baseball team which I belonged to when I was College student in Japan. His nickname is NI-YAN and is the best baseball player I've ever seen. Actually, he got married with his partner today.
Unfortunately, I could not make it because of classes here, but I am sure he is gonna make good family with her new partner.
Ok, my sore throat is getting wrose..I was going to go the library all the day today, but I changed my mind. I am going in the morning and take a nap in the evening... I believe weekend is supposed to exist even for international students to take a rest!! It sure is.
You guys! In the meantime, enjoy all the excitement!!

my computer isn't working right..something wrong.. I couldn't be better. My computer is behaving well recently.
I got up 6 o'clock this morning and talked with Michiko on the internet. It is difficult for us to talk on weekdays(the いらない) because of a time difference. There is a 14-hours time difference, so it was already night in Japan when I called her after the breakfast.
It is great that, thanks to advance in communication technology, we can talk each other so easily for free, but the time difference seems to be still big difficulty for us.
Anyway, she had a good news about her work. As a matter of fact, her company, Mottox, took first place in the ranking of blue-chip wine importers(importer of wine?). How greatt her company is! She is one of workers who work for No.1 firm. I am glad to hear that. Good for you Michi and Mottox!
I think her sales is gonna be easier and better thanks to that ranking.(Orders should be pouring in becase most people who work in the wine industry know the news and are gonna read the magazine for next month that includes the ranking)
By the way, we also talked about 10-year's diary. I am gonna write about 10 year's diary later. We each keep writing a diary on the 10-year's diary book. All right, I am gonna take a break and go study at the library. Masami called me and seems to want me to help her PC issues.
I came back from the library. She wanted to connect her laptop to the internet at the USF. As you know, if has the laptop has wireless LAN in it, you can connect your laptop to the internet so easily. I tried to connect it to the internet because I know her laptop has the wireless LAN and connecting to the internet is possible. But I could solve nothing somehow. ha-ha. So, we went asked (OK?) Katsu.(He is the specialist in Computer) He manipulated something and connected to the internet within a few minutes. Hunn?? What did he do???? That's amazing.
Oh, about 10-years dairy. In this book, each page has 10 rows so that we can put the same day's dairy each year in just one page. It mean we can review what we did on the same day from 10 years ago to that year. Isn't it incredible? I am gonna keep writing everyday (hopefully) so that we can remember our past memories together. Actually, however I have not written in for a while, so there are many blanks. So she told me on the phone what we did in the past and I wrote down now. ha-ha.
