Hello everyone, or good evening?

I would like to write about the time when I temporarily came back to Japan from the U.K before starting University.

【 What always there for you 】

After finishing all the programs and applications for the university, I went back home for a few months.

I felt kind of happy and satisfied when I was on the plane back to Japan, instead of feeling sad and nervous. Maybe I was waiting for the time to go back home after all the things that happened in Oxford…

After 12 hours of flight, I finally arrived at the airport, and I could see my mom waiting for me.

I felt safe and tired.. and at the same time, I felt a bit sad because my mom looked a bit skinnier than before. Probably, she was concerned about me and my dad… I felt sorry as well...

I remember we arrived home late at night. However, my grandma was still awake to see me. She was a very kind woman, and I still miss her a lot now.

After the long flight and train, I managed to stay up without jet lag. I went to bed and I could sleep well that night. I remember, before going to sleep, I told myself “ it’s all ok now” with looking up the ceiling. It’s weird but I always feel so safe when I look at the ceiling of my room. (Have you felt same?)

Perhaps, this became my habit after all the travel overseas… It is like I make sure I am safe right now because I am in my room, in my bed, and looking at the ceiling of my room which I used to see growing up.

On the next day, and the day after...

I knew there won’t be any problems that I was around anymore. I felt Japan is such a safe country unlike other countries, because of no terrorism, few homicides, no drugs, and no guns. Once I came back home, I didn’t need to worry about all the things that used to make me concerned.

I guess there are many obstacles to living in my own country as well as in other countries. However, I can’t ignore the fact that Japan is a rich country when you look at this country from the angle of safety and morality. I even felt so bad that I almost forgot how blessed I was to grow up in this country.

But now, I thank for my ordinary things to be there for me because it is not going to be there always.

OK! That’s it for today!

In the next blog, I will continue writing about the time after I came back to my home.

Thank you for reading my blog until the end!

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