You do not know how I feel. I do not know how you feel. Can we really understand each other? I hate to give up something before I try it. And I also hate to hide what I am feeling right now. So let me give it a try. I am not sure what is going to be happened.....We will see.

Not sure

I have been so confused these days. So I want to ask you some questions
1.What is moral? and how far do you think we can do whatever we want to.
2.Do you think you are honest person by heart? What do you think yourself?
3.What is the definition of good relationship?
Personally, I cannot keep doing something if somebody feel hurt. So what I always try to do is to consider an issue as if I were a person who is in a certain situation. If I feel the person is going to get hurt, I wont do that any more. I guess this is an ordinary answer though. Second, I do not think I am honest person by heart but I have been trying to be honest as much as I can. But sometimes it is hard to keep being honest though. So sometimes I feel like I have some evil spirit in my mind. Do you sometimes feel the same way like me, too? or not? Finally, I believe that good relationship is to keep knowing each other more and more everyday and never stop knowing. Everyone is changing everyday and the world is, too. So we have to keep learning something from everyday life.
----------What do you think?------------

Holly shit!!

Today was the day for the Ropes course from 9:00am till 4:00. I was kind of looking forward to do the Ropes course though because I am sure I can do many things I have never done before! The part we did in the mornign was fine because all of the activities were supposed to do on the ground. Actually, they were fun though. But rest of the part we did in the afternoon was soooooooo much scary for me. First what I did first was climb up a poll 30 feetish tall and walk some flat platforms. You might not know but acutally, I am really scared of height so I hate to ride a Roller coasters and even Fells wheels. So.. as you can easily imagine how I did get scared. Second thing I did was to climb up a poll 30 feetish tall and stand on the top of it..then jump off to kind of small swing. Those were just HOLLY SHIT! I could not even say that but soooooooooo much for me and I could not help crying while I was doing that. But everybody such as my teammates supported me a lot with cheering me up all the time with saying like you can do it, Tamayo! And after the each climbing everybody said to me like "You did great job" or " You are awesome" So! I could make it! I really felt the importance of teammates and their power today. In the meantime, I am satisfied with my job and could get some sort of achievement today. Also, I am sure I could get more confidence through today's Ropes course. I felt nervouse so much before I did and also scared a lot but I bet I did awesome experience I have ever had before today! SO AWESOME!

Made it!

I could get though my all presentations and also the research market project about Netherlands! Yey!! I could learn a lot from our group project though! Probably, I read more than 100 various kind of resource papers to get my part done for market research. Our market research project is about at least 30 pages long. We had to printed them out nicely like a book when we turn them in. I just glanced at our nicely-printed project a littel bit before we turn it in..but I was so impressed though! I have had difficulties to find good resouces for it and also finish my part for a long time but I felt my effort was paid off! In International Marketing class, we had to present our project as well and I took the responsibility of Economic statistics part of Nehterlands. The requirement of the presentation was to present our project without reading note cards. I have never done presentation without reading note cards before and I had only one day to prepare for that. So I was kind of nervous the day before the presentation. But it worked well!! Yey! Since our presentation was recorded on a video tape, I want to copy it and take it back to Japan!
Through three presentations and group projects, I realized the importance to do my best as much as I can even if it does not work well sometimes. Actually, I have not done well with group work such as giving my ideas and stuffs. And I have blamed myself like "why cannot I do that?? or something like that. However, a few days ago, I found that everything was new for me in the first place and I thought what I have to do is to get used to them not complete them. Sine then, I have been feeling more comfortable! And you know what, I have been doing much better than before! I could participate group work really easily! Ans also I could get motivated more than before! This is good thing though! I want to keep going!!!
