  • 19/11/2017
  • Tonight, I am staying at a lodging facility for a reason that I won’t tell you about in this article. How come I feel more relaxed when staying at such facilities than at home?今夜は訳あってある宿泊施設に泊まっている。自分の家ではないところで寝るのに、自分の家で寝る時よりもリラックスできるのは一体なぜなんだろうか。 [続きを読む]
  • 18/11/2017 An overwhelming feeling
  • I sometimes feel an overwhelming sadness. During this sadaness, there is a part of me which is experiencing it and another which i
    s observing myself experiencing it. This duality prevents me from being fully overwhelmed by the sadness.時々わーっと悲し

  • 17/11/2017 So daunting a task
  • It has been difficult for me to pay proper attention to what I eat. The best way is to go to a supermarket, buy foodstuff and cook
    for myself. But the thing is that there is no supermarket where I can buy vegetables by the piece. Therefore, every time I cooked
    , there remained some pieces of vegetables that I had to deal with later. This remainder is so daunting that I don’t want to coo

  • 15/11/2017 Amor fati
  • As I wrote in another article, I am firmly convinced that the course of my life could never have been different. I think I am a ki
    nd of fatalist. Nietzsche, it is said, told us to love our fate by using the phrase ‘Amor fati’, but far be it from me to love

  • 14/11/2017 Messy room, messy mind
  • I have come to a conclusion that I should clean my room frequently, especially when I am busy. Formally, I placed a high priority
    on my work and my research, so I often left my room in a mess. But now, it has brought home to me that I would work less efficient
    ly in a messy room. Besides, I would rest neither my body or my mind so I would remain tired. I need to boost efficiency by keepin

  • 13/11/2017 A convincing proof
  • My family told me yesterday that I sometimes paid no attention to people around me and focused on what I wanted to do. In short, t
    hey called me "my pace," which is a katakana English. It was not until then that I wondered whether they were right. But
    this fact is a convincing proof that they are right.家族曰く、私は時々周りの人を意に介さずに自分のやり

  • 12/11/2017 A sad truth
  • I found out a sad truth recently. Last winter, after I had decided on an apartment, I bought a stylish table and chair. It was des
    igned by a British designer and gave me an impression that I could live a sophisticated life with it. However, there is a bad thin
    g about it. That is, it is designed primarily for British people, who have longer arms and legs than mine. As a result, I need a f

  • 11/11/2017 A long succession of troubles
  • Lately, I have been bombarded with a long succession of troubles, so that one trouble is hardly over before another arises. Thanks
    to them, I am never upset even when something unexpected has happened. What is more, again thanks to them, I just won't be a

  • 10/11/2017 Outsourcing of housework
  • The washing machine in my house has gone out of order. According to word of mouth, it was a product of a company which produces on
    ly domestic appliances of poor quality. Because I cannot afford a new one in terms of time and money, I will try going to a laundr

  • 09/11/2017 For the time being
  • I met one of my classmates today. It seemed that she had been relieved of the mental tension which she had had before. She looked
    somewhat relaxed. As it turned out, she had decided not to submit her dissertation which was due next January, and extended her en
    rollment period. Though I feel inclined to do the same, I will try my best to submit my dissertation this January for the time bei

  • 08/11/2017 On being relied upon
  • What makes you reliable? I have no idea. Then, is it good to be relied upon? I have a definite answer: No. When people around you
    regard you as reliable, they begin to exert a corrosive influence on you. Namely, they commence asking you to do anything you can,
    thus sapping you of time and energy. This all ends up by compelling you to feel your life is under the control of them. To be rel

  • 07/11/2017 A simpler mechanism
  • My mood lifts considerably when I have done something physical. However sad or depressive I feel, the moment I take a meal or a sh

  • 04/11/2017
  • A professor pointed out to me that I should be able to read critically. I feel that I cannot read this way when it takes me a lot
    of effort to interpret each English sentence. The question is , it seems, how to be more efficient in understanding English senten

  • 01/11/2017 The paradox of the student in poverty
  • I am working part-time as an English teacher so that I can pay the graduate school tuition. But I am so busy doing the job that I
    cannot have enough time to study. Let's call this the paradox of the student in poverty.大学院の学費を賄うために

  • 31/10/2017 Several teachers
  • It helps me in becoming a philosopher to have a number of teachers who criticize me, apart from my supervisor. They give me critic

  • Having heard anecdotes of those people who are said to have mastered English, I have realized that they spent a lot more time in s

  • 28/10/2017 Too intense to experience
  • I can't stand being moved. These days I can't hear an impressive story. The bodily sensations that arise when I am moved
    are too intense for me to experience: the contraction of my muscles, the thumping of my heart, the blurring of my sight and so on

  • 27/10/2017 For the past several months
  • Though I have decided to spend this week resting, I have taken no rest at all so far. I feel exhausted because I have had to do a

  • I hear that when you tie a tie with a dimple it looks cool. These days, I practice tying a dimple. It seems easy when you see the
