ETC.

Today I wanna confirm how to read the previous articles and how to make a comment on this page.

To read the previous ones, you just make a CLICK on "May 2005" ( that is following after "about me", "links", "previous posts". Maybe it'll be "Jun 2005" or "July 2005" in the future!) that has a WHOLE articles that were written in MAY 2005!
To make a comment, you'd better make a click on "O comment" that is below each article. And it appears another page where you can write what you want. After writing your opinion, you've gotta choose "other" or "anonymous". And you make a click on "publish your comment". Just that!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hoy quiero confirmar como leer los articulos anteriores y como hacer comentarios en esta pagina.

Primero, para leer los anteriores, haz click on "May 2005" (que esta abajo de "about me", "links" and "previous posts". Sera "Jun 2005" o "July 2005" en futuro.) donde tiene TODOS los articulos de ese mes.
Para hacer comentarios, haz click on "O comment" que esta el fin de cada articulo. Despues aparece la otra pagina donde tienes que escoger "other" o "anonymous". Despues, haz click en "publish your comment" para terminarse.
Es todo. Muy facil, verdad?

CURRICULUM VITAE

It's necessary to UPDATE curriculum vitae, cuz we're always changin' somethin', right? Nowadays I've made mine to send to some organizations where I'd like to work as an intern after coming back my country (YEAH, it's comin', I've got just 5 weeks left!!!). So NOW I've gotta prepare for many things...

But I found out it's very interestin' to write MY OWN curriculum vitae to remind me of myself, who I am, what I have, what I wanna do and how I am. It makes them cleae, so now I can understand bettter what I can do and what I wanna do. It's like a mirror in which you can see yourself and have you think and realize your truth!!!

Anyway, I've gotta finish filling it put...

DESEOS


Me fije recientemente que tengo muchos deseos de lograr en mi vida. Cada momento tengo mas que querer hacer... No alcanza tiempo, dinero ni abilidad!

En cuanto al trabajo, quiero hacer las actividades para las personas "debiles socialmente", arreglando las circumstancias alrededor de ellas, las empujando con algunas actividades efectivas para que ellas puedan cambiar sus situaciones economicas y sociales ya que solo ellas pueden hacerlas.
Aun eso, las personas de afuera tienen que apoyar lo que pueden hacer y lo que ellas NO pueden hacer, digamos, algun proceso de documentacion, algunas informaciones tecnicas o etc..

Simultaneamente, quiero hacer esa actividad combinada con el desarrollo comunitario o la reactivacion de zona porque hay muchas zonas que tienen problemas de declinacion economica y social debido a los cambios
de recursos humanos, clima, cantidad de presupuesto en la administracion de la zona o etc..

Para lograr ese deseo, necesito aprender mas las funciones y los trabajos de ONGs, inculido el manejo de ella. Quiza si trabaja en alguna organizacion, si se puede aprender algo util y valoroso. Sin embargo, estoy preparando a entrarme a la universidad en EE.UU. o Inglaterra donde el nivel de estudio de este campo esta avanzada. (Por eso fui a tener TOEFL hace poco, verdad?)

En cuanto a mi vida personal, claro que si, algun dia quiero casarme con la mujer increiblemente buenisima ( aunque no tengo ningua idea de lograr...).
Ojala que salga bien! ( pero se que eso depende de mi decision!!!)

Tambien, quiero aprender frances que siempre he querido aprender. Una vez empece a estudiarlo, pero no pude seguir ya que no tenia tiempo (ni necesidad...). Asi es que quiero hacer hasta morirme...

Bueno, te contare otro deseos otro dia!

HOLY SHIET, ADRIAN!!!

Adrian,

The hurricane was named like this, which is now near El Salvador. I didn't go to work because of it. Now it's passing by, but the news say that the president said some 14,000 citizens might have to evacuate themselves.

You might think "What's the big deal?"

BUT in this country, it rarely rains a lot like these days, without stopping. So I think it could have been worse though landslides could've happened somewhere here, cuz there're no direct deads and wounds so far. So far, so good, maybe.

P.S.
Now it's not rainin', and I'll go out!
Here, I've got two images of the hurricane, take a look!

HURACAN

Hoy no fui a trabajar ya que se decia que no trabajarian las organizaciones gubernamentales, inculido donde trabajo (me imagino...), o sea que no me ha dicho ni avisado nada. Sin embargo, no es recomendable ir a trabajar en este clima. Es q' el HURACAN esta acercando hacia El Salvador aunque no es huracan todavia. Pero hay muchos vientos y hace mucho frio (tengo mucho porq' estuve en Puerto El Triunfo ayer, alli por supuesto q' hace CALOR!).

Pues, asi que la asamblea aprobo que en estos 4 dias no trabajarian O.G.. Generalmente cuando no trabajo, salgo afuera.

Pero que hago ahora todo el dia en la casa?

Es como un castigo, verdad? Ojala que no haya nada grave por el huracan...

I FOUND OUT for 100%!

I've found out the truth I'd been looking for so far, I mean, about love. As I told in this page, I had been in love with no one, but now I can't stop thinkin' bout a woman whom I feel something special about.
I've never imagined I'd want to get married to someone cuz I thought I'd never been in Love, but I just simply wanna be with that chic..., no sorry! that WOMAN!

Of course, I can't say her name (YOU!) in public (like in this page!!! NO WAY!)

You know, I've got a plan to study out of my country. So I cannot have a lot of responsability, especially economic one for my "future" spouse. And maybe SHE will have to live in another country where I DON'T live!?

Maybe some of you found out that I was confused by the idea and difference between "marriage and romance". This time, I swear I found out what I wanna do although it's gonna be a very big challenge for me to do somthin' more in order to get'er, cuz now she's not here with me. It's ironic to recognize my true emotion.
BUT I know my boo. All I've gotta do now is DO anythin' I can do 4 her or I'll regret much.
In this meaning, I'm happy to some degree, but I know it's pretty difficult to be as I wanna let the situation and the relation be. So, I'm in a bad mood although I'm happy in thinkin' bout'er.

Life is NOT easy, right?
How's your life?
Good? WHY?
BAD? WHY?


P.S.
One of my friends sent me this WEB address below. It's cool, so i want you to take a look! It's got a couple of minute video in ENGLISH.

Page in Japanese, Pagina en Japones

I don't know how to put the "link pages" on this blog, so here I tell you my "page in Japanese". If you're interested in it, take a look!!!

http://yaplog.jp/elevenonce/

No se como poner "paginas vinculadas (correcto?)" en este blog, por eso aqui, pongo "pagina en japones". Si tienes interes, visitala!!!

dias malos y dias buenos

Ayer fui a tener el examen de TOEFL, pero fue TERRIBLE!!!

El lugar es mas o menos, pero no era muy organizado. Especialmente los equipos eran MALISIMO! Las parlantes (altavoz) no funcionaron bien, es decir, eran MUY grandes. Asi es que solo los sonidos bajos (ondas bajos) eran fuertes, demasiado fuertes...(cuando habraba el hombre en las preguntas del examen, solo oi "woo, wo woooooo, wwooo, woo, woooooo ...". Creo que NADIE quien estaba alli puede tener la nota alta, en la parte de listening.

Por eso, estuve MOLESTO con mi amigo quien estuvo en misma examen or casualidad. Y fuimos a tomar... no principalmente a "COMER", viendo los partidos de Real Madrid y Barca. Estoy ya MUY CONTENTO!!! Sabes porque, no?

CAMPEON! CAMPEON! CAMPEON! Ronaldihno, es magico!!!

Es un ejemplo de nuestras vidas, hay cosas malos, pero hay cosas buenas aunque queremos solamente las buenas...

P.S.
ya instale "SKYPE" que se puede comunicarse a traves de Internet con los sonidos mejores que otros programas. Puede descargarlo en la pagina siguiente:

Social Activities

What's the social activity?

From the end of last year, I've been thinkin' bout it. Now I think it's NOT ABOUT THE MONEY from my point of view, probably, for example, friends' meeting, volunteer activities, charity, parties and etc. But some of them are vey meaningful for our daily lives, I mean, essentially they have a lot of potenciality to make many people HAPPY!
So, what are they?
It's not so easy to think and have something very good quickly as we know. For example, now I'm a member of a NGO (actually I've started workin' in this organization that begins their activities in Japan!) and I've had a lot of opportunities to talk about this kind of things. And I think we, human beings, generally work for money. So we tend to think about ourselves and our lives ( to some degree, yes, of course!).


BUT ARE YOU HAPPY IF YOU EARN A LIVING WITH A GOOD JOB AND A GOOD SALARY, JUST THINKIN' BOUT YOUR OWN THINGS?
I SWEAR I'VE NEITHER THOUGHT ABOUT IT NOR FELT IT!!! I feel HAPPY when my friends, family and especially the people who need some help. In this meaning, it was one of my sincere feeling and purpose that got me to come to this country and work with people in the countriside. And now I know that this country has a enough possibility to get progressed and developed with a "a little bit" of help. At the same time, they would need other kind of help, that will be a "change of mentality" or "activities based on the other type of mentality". They'd be a "everyone-happy relationship business" or "private companies activities that assist the social problems".
Through I talked with our colleagues and they told me, yes it's possible to realize them with a little bit of thoughts, ideas and efforts. This is an example, below, that other member of that group told us and it's a typical example we wanna realize.
http://www.heartsinsf.com/
So, I wanna DO MY BEST to try to do GOOD THINGS I believe and make more people HAPPY! (I think it's my goal ).

Vacuna de Rabia

Hoy fui a la casa donde vivia yo antes, el puerto de La Libertad. Bueno primero fuimos al muelle del puerto donde se venden muchos productos pesqueros, como pescados, camarones, calamares o etc. Y comimos "mariscada" que tenia bastante langostinos, camarones, pescados.... Era muy riquisima!!!
Despues fuimos a la casa y platicamos alli. Comimos los mangos heladitos (Si! Son mas ricos!). Si estuvo muy bien, ya que ellos son muy agradables, me conocen y los conozco. Vivia alli por casi un ano. Asi que habia muchas cosas que querer hablar.
Sin embargo, cuando la companera mia fue al bano donde estaba en el jardin y tambien estaban PERRROS, de repente un perro valiente (o estupido, perdon!) la mordio!!! Ese perro estuvo muy tranquilo porque yo tambien estuve en el jardin, pero el ultimo momento estuvo a punto de salir del jardin, se cambio su estado... Me dio mucha pena porque yo deberia cuidarlo mucho hasta que saliera ella.
Asi que despues fuimos al hospital para que le inyectara a ella la vacuna de rabia!!! Por supuesto que me dio mas pena... Ojala que no haya nada mal de su salud.
Segun lo que me conto ella, siempre los perros NO la quieren. Quiza a ella no le gusta mucho ni a los perros no les gusta. Asi que cuando ella tenia algunos perros En SU casa, tambien le descortezaban a ella aunque era un miembro de la familia del dueno! Tal vez, tienen las ONDAS muy distintas!!!


TEN CUIDADO a los perros!!!

EXAMINATION OF LANGUAGES


Well, I don't like any kind of examinations like many people. BUT we sometimes have to take them as a obligation. In my case, in a week, I've gotta take it, I mean, Toefl. So today I took the "practice version" that i had. Against my expectation, I got a good score that was considered "enough" for international students to enroll in the Univ. in US. So I felt good, cuz I've been workin' on this test preparation since the end of last year. And now I feel I can understand more than before beacuse , yeah of course, I've studied a lot. I hope I can do my best and get a high score on the test day!!!
Regarding Spanish test, I'm thinking the possibility to take "Dele" in Japan (in November?). I think it's gonna be good for me to get a "visible score" or "measurable certificate" or something that can clarify my language level. The only problem of this test is that it has just three levels (Basic, Intermediate and Advanced), so i'll take a second one! And I'm sure this kind of certificate will give me more chances to get good jobs!!!
What kind of certificates do you have and why?

day ON!

Actually, I started keeping "a kind of" diary on the web since about a month ago, and I like this because I can share a lot of things I think, feel and have done! So I'm gonna keep it till I'm tired of this!
In the last month, I wrote that kind of things in the following address, so you can take a look at when you've got a time.
Today, I've got a big news (it's very good for me!). Tomorrow, on Saturday, we, the governmantal organization employees, have to work. But the problem is they told us on Thursday in the afternoon (at 4 o'clock!!!)!!! It's too late, isn't it??? they should've notice us earlier, but I know these kinds of things happen here frecuently... And I know I'll have a THREE DAYS OFF from Sunday! So I've gotta work hard tomorrow, maybe...

P.S. I've gotta send a E-card to my mother cuz, you know, I don't do anything for her, so I MUST do something good just once a year!
What are you gonna do on the mother's day?

Musica


MusicaHoyquiero hablar de MUSICA. Fianlmente, he escuchardo musicas a traves de la pagina de Yahoo recientemente. Asi es que si te gusta, escucha las cansiones o ver sus videos.

http://music.yahoo.com/

Esta pagina nos ofrece el servicio gratuito (tambien hay la parte NO gratuita!).Que clase de Musica te gusta (mas)?Y por que?A mi, me gusta "R&B(Rhythm and Bruce)" mas que otras clases de musica, ya que me cae muy bien y creo que es super-chivisimo! Siempre se cambia lo que me gusta, dependiendo de mi estado, mi modo, mi edad (Si! Me gustaba ROCK, por ejemplo, Bon Jovi cuando era nino...), mis amigos (Si! Uno de mis amigos siempre me prestaba los CDs de Rock de E.U.) y etc.Musica siempre me hace relajado, refrescado y sentir muy bien.

Por supuesto que yo canto si conozco las letras. Yo se que no puedo cantar como los profesionales, pero me gusta cantar. Por ejemplo ahora puedo cantar algunas cansiones de SIN BANDERAS porque, primero me gustan, segundo son despacios (AMOR REAL, ENTRA EN MI VIDA, KILOMETROS...). Francamente, no puedo cantar las cansiones en Espanol debido a falta de oportunidad de cantarlas. En Japones y Ingles, tengo muchas mas cansiones que puedo cantar. Otro dia, te cantare si quieres (!) que yo cante. Creo que, en cuanto al ARTE, es muy importante satisfacer a su mismo, verdad? Es decir, ARTE (que Yo hago) es AUTO-SATISFACCION para mi!!! NADA MAS!Pero ahora, como yo dije, me ENCANTA R&B puramente!!! Me encanta el ritmo, la suavedad y el TODO! Quiza estoy enamorado de esta musica!!! Las cansiones favoritas son los siguientes:

Usher: Burn
Amerie: 1 thing
Mariah Caray: It's like that
Jeniffer Lopez: Get Right
P.Diddy: I'll be missing you
Lyfe Jennings: Must be nice
Nelly: Dilemma (Featuring Kelly Rowland)

Mary J. Blige: Rainy Dayz
Mario: Let me love...

Hasta ahora, asi son, pero hasta ahora, me entiendes? Quien sabe lo que me gusta manana???

SHALL WE DANCE?


I went to see this movie a couple days ago, and ... yes it's good, I mean, it's different from the one I thought. I was thinking that it's just a romantic one cuz these three famous actors and actresses, but this story has not only a that romantic part but something meaningful about "DANCE". I don't not exactly what it is, maybe "DANCE is not a exercise but a part of our lives. People live for DANCE".What kind of meaning does DANCE have for you?

Actually, after seeing this movie, I wanted to long to dance without exception. To be honest, every time I see movies, they make me involved in totally within 24 hours after seeing'em. So now I think I wanna learn to dance, but very hardly. Maybe when I have time, probablely after goin' back to my country or a little bit later... maybe I'll learn TANGO, SALSA, CUMBIA y MERENGUE (Do you think I want too much? But I'm very interested in all of them!!!).Finally, I gotta talk 'bout Jenny (of course, Jennifer Lopez!). She's... beautiful, I mean, to be honest with you I'd neither thought of it nor been interested in her.

But she's got a big and special presence.Anyway now I'm a her fan!

OTRA VEZ!!!


OTRA VEZ!!!Es increible! Otra vez, senti mal este dia despues de tener la infeccion del estomago hace una semana. Esta vez, me imagino que, primero, el dia anterior en la noche me acoste tarde ( a las 2 de la manana!). Segundo, estuve en el carro para visitar a la comunidad donde trabajaba y esta a 2 horas en ida, o sea que 4 horas en total. Creo que no es bueno recibir los vientos directametne a la cabeza por mucho tiempo, en mi caso. Asi es que he estado un poco mal... aunque estoy muy bien y lleno de energia mentalmente!

YA decidi una cosa. Para trabajar bien, tengo que dormir por 6 horas por lo menos cada dia. Segun lo que he leido, el ciclo de dormirse es 90 minutos. Es decir, es recomendable despertar despues de cada ciclo para que se sienta bien. Por eso, 1.5, 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5 y 9 horas de dormir son recomendables.Yo dormire por 6 horas desde hoy. Y tu?
Por cuantas horas duermes? Y por que?Ya es tarde, hoy tengo que descansar bien, ya que soy el unico que me puede cuidar!
SALUD A
TOD@S!!!

JULY 4TH AND ...
JULY 4TH AND ...


I have to make it clear that when I leave El Salvador, cuz it's already set. It'll be on July 4th, Monday, I think I'll get on a plane in the morning. It's gonna fly to Houston, and after staying there I'll go to Tokyo, Japan the next day.It's a little bit sad 'cuz my time here is very limited, I've just got about 2 months to enjoy my life in a Central American country... I came to this country 2 years ago, in April, 2003. Oh, I feel like a long, long time ago!!! I'd like to stay here and work, but I have other things I wanna challenge. Besides, the contract that I have with a Japanese Agency is valid for 2 years. So, I have to go with a lot of good memories, like friendships, loves...

You know, I just have a limited time here now. I think it's necessary to do what I really wanna do, taking adventage of being here. For example, SALSA! I mean, it's a latin dance (isn't it?). Actually I'm supposed to be in the salsa class on Saturdays. But actually I've not kept on being there, but I always try to get there!So I went there yesterday. BUT it was a very class, I mean, the level of "basic steps" was a little bit high for the people who were there. i know that this guy who taught us is a very good adviser and famous. But I was about to hate'im because of the high-level two-hour-class.You know, it's not easy to FEEL SOMTHING in dancin'. I've not felt it yet! If I wanna master it, yes I know, I gotta keep on gettin' there. I'll try!

DO YOU LIKE DANCING? IF YES, WHAT KIND OF DANCE DO YOU LIKE?

RIQUEZA ECONOMICA Y MENTAL
RIQUEZA ECONOMICA Y MENTAL


Estas feliz ahora? Si dices que SI, por que SI?Si dices que NO, por que NO?Sabemos que hay muchas discusiones entre "Riqueza Economica y Riqueza Mental". He pensado muchas veces profundamente, sin embargo creo que es IMPOSIBLE llegar a una conclusion ultima.Yo naci y creci en el pais muy ordenada y rico economicamente. Pero eso no significa que estoy feliz, ya que se que hay muchas personas descontentas alli aunque no tienen muchos problemas economicos.

POR QUE?
Porque no estan satidfechas con lo que se han sentido, por ejemplo las relaciones entre personas en las sociedades modernas son debiles y delicadas. Asi que ellas no pueden confiar a otras facilmente debido al caracter del dicho mundo, donde las tecnologias avanzadas eliminan los puntos que ellas tienen contactos social y se hace alguna relacion, como amistades, amores o etc..Ya sabemos que no hay "humanitario" y les hace sentir SOLO debido a falta de los dichos contactos.Por otro lado, las personas que no tienen muchos recursos economicos piensan que los quieren mas porque creen que seran la unica manera de que puedan sentirse mejor. Segun lo que he escuchado, en cuanto los consiguen, pierden algo "humanitario"....SON ALTERNATIVAS? No se puede obtener estos dos al mismo tiempo?Cual es mas importante? Para ti, cual es?

The 10-Second Manager


The 10-Second Internet Manager If you have time, take a look at this page and see the video (about 10 min.WMP or RPL) below this web page!!!

http://www.markbreier.com/video.html

I found out this book written by Mark Breier, ex-executive of amazon.com, craft (dairy products campany!) or etc., was good, interesting, amazing and a little bit exagerated (but I swear, I like his way of thinking!!!)He says and recommends that we, Managers, have to do quickly everything as soon as we can at the same time and make our tasks and duties more organized. For example, we should NOT turn off the computer BUT keep it "stand-by mode" in order to start working again just within from 10 to 20 seconds" instead of waiting for more than 1 minute of setting up the comp. Another example is that he recommends managers have to hire interviewed person who shakes his or her legs, it means this person HATES waitng. So he or she will work in a QUICK way, it means he or she can work more things than others.

This amazing author of this book and the following web page has his own creativity and does as he wants. In this book, he says he appeared half-NAKED in "Larry King Live" (CNN) because he came there to talk about "amazon.com's advantages for buying on the net". So this campany was making and putting TV commercials that a naked man went to the entrance of his house after hearing the bell rung. And the postman got surprised with his appearance. I mean, this message is "you don't need to put on clothes to go out to buy books.So he wanted to emphasize its advantages of high technology. And it's said that after his appearance, the stock price of amazon.com had gone up.

MY HOUSE


I went to the project site where I worked to have a kind of presentation that had some videos about Japanese and Peruvian fishing. It's good, I think. Of course, it was NOT perfect. But I believe it's very useful for the artesan fishermen with whom I worked. And they enjoyed a TV commercial of NIKE that some famous soccer players appeared and showed thier magic. Actually it was just a 90 sec-TV comm. and it was played in a break ( the whole presentation was for 2 hours). BUT I have to confess that it was the most exciting and intersting momont for them. Yes I know why and it was what I had imagined (but NOT expected). Yes, we know. Soccer is not just a sport BUT a religion in Latin America and in my heart, too!!!

OK, my father sent me a few photos. And I could confirm that my family's dog (its name is KURAN) was alive yet last night. It's about ... I don't know its age, but i know she started to be in our house about 10 years ago??? Is it possible? I don't know, maybe right... Anyway I'm happy to hear about her (mmm, I saw it in the photo, so I wanna share it with you.).And another photo he sent me is "cherry blossoms'" one that are in the park in fornt of my family's house. You know, in Japan, there're four seasons. And now it's spring that has a good time to see "the beautiful color of cherry blossoms" and now is the only moment to see them in the year. So people like to go to have a chat and drink with their friends, families or cooworkers seeing these beautiful trees (as you know or guess, the latter is sometimes more important than the former. Oh it depends on each one, right?!).When I get there, I'd like to do it .Do you have any favorite flowers or trees?
Esas fotos son:
Cerezas que estan en el parque en frente de mi casa,
KURAN que es un miembro de mi familia

QUE Y COMO ES JAPON?

Cuantas veces me han preguntado asi...? Pues, realmente no me molestan al hacer esta pregunta, ya que soy japones y vivo en El Salvador. Pienso que soy como si fuera un representante del pais de "SUN-RISING" y he tenido muchas oportunidades de explicar que y como es. Por supuesto que no es tan simple explicar bien aunque siempre trato de hacerla a la gente entender, por ejemplo, que comen, que hacen, que es la cultura?, cual deporte le gustan o etc. Ya he logrado a capturar la imagen general de mi pais mas que antes a traves de mi TANTAS experiencias de reconocer y hablar de cosas japonesas.Creo que mucha gente sabe que trata de saber y reconocer su pais cuando esta afuera de su pais. En realidad, he pensado muchas cosas de Japon, mis amigos, mi familia y ex-novias... (la ultima es broma!?). Me imagino que siento la presencia de ellos mas fuerte que antes, y voy a sentir la de mis amigos en El Salvador cuando llegue alli. Francamente nunca he sentido "homesick" despues de venir aqui, sin embargo siempre estan en el fondo de mi mente.Ahora aqui estoy, sin gran problema (... a veces tengo problemas como... como que? de trabajo, amistad, romance(!?)...). Pues en total increiblemente no tengo problema serio debido a su presencia de mis amigos que siempre me hacen reir, chambrear (chat), sentirme bien, hablar del futuro con entusiasmo y etc. Tal vez estoy feliz.QUE ES TU FELICIDAD? GRACIAS


P.S.
Two photos below are what I took in my town and in a beech where I worked with fishermen's cooperatve. Thanks!

FRIENDSHIP & LOVE


Do you know the EXACT difference of these two words' meanings? Actually, I don't know it or I've not found it out yet. I guess it depends on each of us. In my case, I can't define the meanings, so I have no idea, neither know how to distinguish "friendship" from "love". BUT I think it's necessary to know what they are and what they mean because they are different ( as everyone says, maybe). In my opinion, love is BORN after friendship's growing. I'm sure of it. But I simultaneously think it means that friendship is a preparation stage to mature love? Wow, it's like a maze!!! Have you ever considered them?

As for me, I've had "a kind of" relationship with someone, but I've sometimes been confused since I don't understand what I feel and think about my girlfriend (when I have one. Now I don't say anything 'bout it!), or maybe I'm not in love with this person.So I think I've never fallen deeply in love with anyone in my life, like a blind love, for example, thinking about her all the day long and don't feel like doing anything except thinking 'bout her or being with her. Do you know what I mean?I'm good, I mean, I'm not tired of my life nor fed up with my daily life. I just feel I wanna find it out. If I couldn't do it, it'll be my personal problem.

Oh my goddess! What I wrote down here is like "an adolescent mail to a radio program"!!!Who knows the difference between them and can help me?

TRABAJAR COMO UN VOLUNTARIO EXTRANJERO


Este dia, he estuve pensando casi solo este tema en el lugar de mi trabajo, ya que muchas cosas chiquitas que se ocurieron hoy me hicieron pensar asi, exactamente los siguientes tres son:

1) JaponesPrimero, quiero empezar con esto porque es un elemento muy importante y tambien efecta mucho a mis companeros de trabajo y a mi trabajo. Afortunadamente las personas a quienes conozco son BUENISIMAS y LINDOS. Muchisima gracias!!! Una de razones es que los japoneses a quienes conocen esas personas tienen buena imagen a otros japoneses tambien, asi que me muestran buenas actitudes y me atienden bien. Soy feliz porque soy JAPONES!Sin embargo, conozco a algunas personas que no tienen buena impresion hacia japoneses, quizas, debido a sus experiencias que tuvieron con ellos o solo no les gustan. En realidad, me han dicho algunas palabras como racismo en algunas ocaciones. Tengo una mentalidad debil y delicada (pero se recupera muy rapidamente!!! Es mi ventaja!). Por eso no me afecta mucho, pero quiero hacer alguna actividad contra eso para que no haya esta forma de pensar en este mundo. Creo que ya ustedes comprenden, no?SOMOS HUMANOS, Y QUE?

2) Voluntario (Temporal, Responsabilidad--- limitada y no puede estar responsable?)Ahora trabajo en una organizacion gubernamentel y soy voluntario extranjero que trabaja SOLO por 2 anos. Significa que mis companeros de trabajo NO pueden hacerme ni obligarme trabajar o ser muy responsable ( Si quieren, con MUCHO GUSTO. Pero realmente no hay persona que me dice asi...). Eso me ha hecho pensar mucho ya que he sentido un poco ancioso porque no me han pedido para que yo trabaje mucho. Pues, como otros japoneses, a mi tambien me gusta trabajar mucho.Pero ahora se que tengo que hacer algo ACTIVAMENTE en vez de PASIVAMENTE en mi trabajo. Esta idea y la realidad me hizo mas imaginativo sobre lo que hago y planeo al trabajar. En Japon, como sabemos, hay que trabajar muchisimo (aunque ya ganan bien y no tienen tiempo de GASTAR dinero. Hay la expresion que se dice que "Trabajen hasta que se murieran!!!". Crees que son locos, no?). En esta situacion, la gente a veces no sabe porque trabajan mucho asi.
Simultaneamente los hace PASITIVOS debido a que hay muchisimas cosas que hacer en sus trabajos. Es la desventaja de japoneses ahora, y en mi caso, afortunadamente he tenido esta oportunidad de tener que pensar, hacer, trabajar activamente. Esta forma de pensar afecta muy positivamente a los celebros porque se necesita pensar mucho activamente y los CELEBROS TRABAJAN MUCHO. Si trabajan mucho en este proceso, les hacen a esas personas mas SANO, POP, SATISFECHO, ESTAR EN BUEN ESPIRITU Y ENERGICO.TE HIZO MAS MOTIVAD@ A TRABAJAR MAS O MUCHO?

3) ComunicacionEs un element muy importante. En mi caso, como un extranjero, siempre he pensado de que necesito mostrar mi pensamiento MAS a otros. NO es tan facil expresar todo que pienso y siento debido a mi caracter y a la cultura que me ha hecho asi, aunque siempre estoy tratando de cambiar esta parte de mi personalidad. Se que hablo Espanol (por supuesto, ya comprendes, no?), pero no es perfecto. Asi que tengo que tratar de ser mas comuncativo y mostrar lo que estan en mi celebro y corazon(!). Es mi desafio.

QUE TIPO DE TECNICAS TIENES PARA MANTENER BUENA COMUNICACION Y RELACION?Es todo. Espero que digas o escribas tu opinion.Gracias.

MY FIRST TIME

Hello, everyone! How're you doing? One of my friends told me about this site where we can have access to keep a kind of diary on "each WEB page" ( it's not exactly EACH web page, but it's OK for me!). And now I'm writing this message, and I feel very good with a little bit of enthusiasm!!!Actually it's gonna be my 2nd time to keep a diary, but the last time was when I was a kid, maybe in a elementary school. So I don't think it's gonna be so hard for me to do it! And I suppose to UPDATE my article every 2 or 3 days exchanging in English for in Spanish and in Spanish for in English. I hope I can do it well, actually These languages aren't my mother tangue. So if there're some mistakes (and you cannot stand seeing them any more!), TELL ME PLEASE!OK, today's topic is "Football club, Barcelona". WE lost today, and I've been sad, very sad. Real Madrid, yes I know it's "galaxsy", played very cleverly, I mean, just with a counter-attack strategy. So they won. It's disgusting....Well, it's all today!
Thank you,
