Hey guys! I got package from Minako! I was so happy to recive it, there was few sweets which about I want to tell you Ok, First “kinako bar” or something like this, it was roll, it was like middle finger and tasted like sweet sand. Really, it was like eating sweet sand :p But tasty I like it much! Next one, this with runner on “guriko” or something like that, just sweet carmel hearts, I like carmel so… in same package was pink coloured elephant – toy <3 This toy reminds me about song I was singing in kindergarten “Był sobie słoń różowy, różowy tak jak krem” (ang: There was a Pink Elephant, Pink as creme) haha Ok and my favourite xD this red with “konbu” on it is made from… seaweed! It was crazy! o.O it was sour, salty and gummy, with white coating, dark green, little brown coulor. Strange, but good! My japanese teacher said that when he was young he’ve eaten it and that it’s one of the most terrible things he remembers. haha! Everything was finely packed in box and packing paper ^^ Thanks Minako! <3 I’ve recived another pack from Mayu, tell me in comments if you like such posts and which “sweets” would you like to try! <3
I asked few friends about “What do you do after school” here is few answers they gave to me:
Veronika: It’s depend on day. On Monday and Thursday I have dance class. On Thuesday and Wednsday I have fitness, ad on Friday I usually meet with my boyfriend.
I don’t have much time after school, I’m trying to spend time I have actively.
Laila: After school I meet with my friends. Then I go for a walk. I eat diner in Subway or drink coffee somewhere. At 18 I’m back home. I watch a movie or use computer then do homework and use computer again.
In my school we have many extra classes like Manga, Photography, Paint, Math Class, Phisics Class, School Choir, Basketball, Voleyball, Nordicwalking, skating, guitar class, and other.
We also can attend for extra classes not in school or spend time in our own way. In shoping center, with friends, on the walk, swimming pool etc. sience we are 16 we can have part time, in shops or restaurants.
Every Monday I go to the shooting gallery, every Theusday I have guitar class and on Saturday I have Japanese class.
In Japan, we can have a part time when we become 18 years old, so many ofthem do part time after school. i also do a part time three times a week after school. it starts at 5:00 p.m. and finishes at 10:00 p.m. so these days i have no enough time to do something.
Some students belong to club activities at school. it is popular for them. volleyball club, dance club, baseball, and soccer are especially popular club activities in Japan (: however some of them also do a part time. i think they are really tired, because even me, only do a part time, is tired after the part time! haha
I think Japanese are more busier than other countries xD however everyone manages to do both! ha
Some of my friends go to a cramming school in order to pass the entrance exams of universities or collages.
As for me, i go to an english conversation lesson every tuesdays, have an extra lesson every thursday at school and Chinese lesson every saturdays. i think i am kind of girl haha
Today is lovers day,
I think in many countries we celebrate this in different ways.
In Poland it’s kind a commercial holiday, there is many hearts around the streets, in shops are baloons and ads asking “Have you bought present for your true love?” I don’t like it at all,
In my school we have “Valentines Post Office” we can send a letter with romantic poem to our love from other class.
My friends also give to their girlfriends or boyfriends small gift, card or chocolates (But girls are not always happy when get chocolates “We will become fat!” some could say )
I think many couples is going for romantic walk or dinner, sometimes watch a movie in the cinema or at home.
I think I should say that we don’t send letters and give gifts only to our loves, It’s common to send it to your best friend. I recived a valentines gift from my good friend Ania and I sent to her something too.
In Japan, of course couples celebrate Valentine’s Day. if you have a boyfriend, i think you will definitely give chocolate to him.
but we have another way how to spend this day! i think it is a little weird. some students exchange chocolates, cookies or something even among friends, no boys! i haven’t give it to guys for a few years, because i don’t have any guy who i like! haha
so i made many chocolates and cookies for my friends yesterday! and then, i exchange them each other at school (: everything i was given looked nice and was really good!!!
i didn’t take some pictures of them sry!
we have ‘White day’ on March in japan.
Valentine’s Day is a day when normally girls give chocolates to boys, and White Day is a day boys give something to girls in return!
Gdy cię nie widzę, nie wzdycham, nie płaczę, Nie tracę zmysłów, kiedy cię zobaczę; Jednakże gdy cię długo nie oglądam, Czegoś mi braknie, kogoś widzieć żądam; I tęskniąc sobie zadaję pytanie: Czy to jest przyjaźń? czy to jest kochanie?
When I can’t see you, I don’t sight nor cry,
I don’t loose my mind when you are so far
But when I don’t meet you too long time,
I miss something, I want to see someone;
And missing I’m asking:
Is it friendship? or is it love?
There was small holiday in Poland and in Japan too, because of Christmas and New Year,
so with ‘new energy and smile on the face’ we can go to school and write something about it, haha
In Poland we don’t wear uniforms at all! In primary school we can wear what ever we want to. In Secondary school we can wear what we want but only in “School colours” that means we can wear just blue, white, grey and black to school.
Ofcourse there is few schools where students have to wear uniforms.
On Friday we have “Colorful day”. That day we can wear every colour! And every 13th day of month we have an event, that everybody who will have e.g Santas Hat won’t be ask on the lesson. It’ really fun ^^
On Monday we have to wear white shirts and ties
The longest break has20 minutes, we can eat lunch made at home or from school canteen. I usually have some fruits like banana and apple or a sandwich.
My school has just 3 floors,
one small and one big gym, ‘mirrors’ gym with big balls and many mirrors to do fitness and big playing field
We also have cloakroom, I hate it cuz there isn’t enough space for everybody and it’s a little dangerous when all school finish lessons at the same time.
Minako wrote that they clean their classrooms. In Poland we just make a mess, during the lessonse and on the breaks! Hahaha
Most Japanese schools have uniforms. Some schools has no uniform, but i think it is rare.
school of my friend does not have one, but she wears uniform. in japan, there are some shops that we can buy uniforms. there are many kinds of uniforms there! she buys there.
i wanted to buy some stuff there, but my school does not allow to wear the others ); haha…
Minakos School Uniform
in lunch time, i guess many students have their own “obento” or school lunch at school.
and i think this is really different point from foreigns’ school is that japanese students clean school ourselves after school or long break time every day. i hate it xb lol
and my school have 7 floors! it is like a building. haha
the swimming pool is on the 7th floor, and the gym is across from my school. lol we have only 10 min break times, so it is a little bit hard to get the gym or swimming pool, and wear swim suit and gym suit! xD
So it’s first school post!
Write in comments what do you think is the best in our schools and how it is in your school!
