When I was an elementary student
I was so enthusiastic about reading the series of "Arsene Lupin "written by Mauruce Leblanc.

One of my classmates, often recommended books to me in the library and we tried to beat to each other over the number of the books we read.

He was a voracious reader.
He not only read simple books but also read heavy ones.

My inclination to read was influenced by him around that time.

Since he was very smart, he easily entered and graduated from Tokyo University.
On the other hand, I turned out to be a ordinay woman.

I have been very lazy about studying recently,

I noticed that I hadn't finished the papers(drills) at all which were supposed to be sent to my teacher by the 25th of this month.

My correspondence course in French helps me a lot to improve my writing skills,
because I must write them by hand.

I also have to admit that I haven't done my paperwork for the family business for this month either.

When I think of my procrastinating I feel depressed and the pain in my neck gets worse.
I know I will do it one of these days, I should try to be more optimistic.

Times have changed since the days when I didn't need to lock the doors.
As I was raised in a rural region, my family's house used to be open during the day.

Yesterday, two people from a security company came and set alarms by each of the windows and doors.
It took them all day long.

They told me that if something happed I could simply press the button and some people would hurry here to solve the problem.

It seems very reliable,but since I'm not used to the new security system,
I forgot set the alarm yesterday evening.

For some reason, I feel happier today in spite of the pain of my neck
This morning, as soon as I found time, I played two short pieces on the piano

Until recently, no matter how busy I was, I tried to inspire myself to study something and play the piano everyday.
This morning I felt that way again.
As soon as I got back home from our ancestors' graveyard where I weed every Saturday morning,

I started to play. I think my performances are at an elementary level,
but I still enjoy myself.

Sometimes the time in front of the piano takes me back to my childhood,
I often placed 10 matches by me in order to count the number of songs I had played.

Whenever I go into town, I change my clothes,
as my mother often told me to be careful about my appearance.
Nowadays it is a bit old-fashioned to think that way.

Today I went out in my everyday clothes for the first time in a long time.
"First things first", my mother always told me, so I had done a lot of things before I left today,
but I ended up breaking my old habit again.
