Hello everyone, or good evening?

In a blog today, I will write about the difference in education which I felt in the art class in Oxford.

【 What I’m supposed to do 】

In the art class in Oxford, I had many opportunities that make me feel the cultural difference and characteristics of each country.

What I was surprised the most was that most of my classmate was thinking that

“ Homework = Not necessarily need “.

In my Japanese school, teachers would call your name in front of everyone in the class and give you a detention or double the amount of work to do If you don’t do homework.

I had been thinking that doing homework is mandatory as I knew the consequence of not doing homework, which was being scolded by teachers.

I had this belief that “ what you are asked to do is mandatory”.

However, most of my classmates in the art class didn’t do homework as though it is normal. What’s more, teachers didn’t even give us much homework…

I was surprised about what I was seeing but I guess it was just the difference in education.

I remember that most of the students were saying,

“I didn’t have time for the homework.”

“I didn’t feel like doing homework.”

“I’m sorry but there were other important things to deal with.”

They were always confident about their opinions.

Then teachers were asking them back like “ what else did you have important things to do?” As they seemed more interesting to their life than the fact that they didn’t do homework.

I honestly thought “Oh… so that’s all ok then…?”

I had seen such a situation many times that my belief started falling down.

“What is the homework for?”

“Why am I doing homework?”

“Who decides what I should do?”

Those kinds of questions were in my head all the time and I felt even empty.

It means that all the things I had done in my life and all the things I had been believing were so easy to be corrupted by those fresh beliefs and actions foreign people had. As they were thinking way more serious about their own life than I used to.

Now what I feel is that

It is difficult to get out of the rules and belief which once you were into.

However, It is possible to get out of them.

I guess it does make sense to me now.

Ok! That’s it for today!

In the next blog, I will write about “the difficulty in Freedom of creating” which I learned in the art class.

Thank you for reading my blog until the end!

See you next week and have a great weekend (^D^)/~♪
