Since I'm Germany I feel a lot more depressed and frustrated than being in Japan, just a few kilometres away from one of the world's biggest catastophe's areas...
Since my university hasn't started yet, my daily life is controlled by checking the media. Since I don't have trust in any TV channel around, I follow Reuter's Live Ticker, which gives a lot of information about the N-Plant situation in Fukushima.
Please take a look if you want to have serious information, followed with comments by people living around the world and in Japan. It's my only hope these days and helps me a lot to feel informed.
Tomorrow I will have an interview with a German newspaper about the whole situation in Japan. While everyone is in panic and annoys me with stupid comments about cancer and other risk, I hope I can give a statement about Japan not as person who enjoys buying fashion in Tokyo or eating Sushi everyday, but more as a person who lives there, who has a life there which isn't easy or possible to give up.
Next week they will decide about the scholarship for my BA-thesis. It's my biggest wish to obtain this support and return to Japan as soon as possible.
Yoshi and I are doing 4~5 hours of Skype everyday. Since he has got his new job which will start in April, he took some days off work to check out if the situation will be ok or if he needs to return to his family in Koichi.
And of course he spent time with Peko. Happily one of his ex co-workers, who lives in Saitama with his family, will help him out and take care of Peko since Yoshi's part-time job will begin on Saturday. They have another small dog, who loves other dogs. So I hope they get along well for the time I'm absent in Germany...
I just want to return as soon as possible...if everything works out, we're thinking to change apartments in the middle of April ^-^
We have talked about various stuff these days and in this huge crisis, I truly believe that I can't live here in this country...I want to be with Yoshi, even if it'll be a risk to my health XD Sounds pretty Disney-movie-like, huh? But maybe that's the sweet feeling of loving someone beyond every clear thought.
Yoshi is following the media, too. In case the situation will get much worse, we're thinking to move to Koichi which is pretty far away from everything. Since we're thinking about marriage and children this is a serious concern, although until today there is no need to worry yet. We love Tokyo and hope the levels of radiation won't go up anymore.
(if you have followed the right media, you would know that the risk of dieing of cancer is already around 25%...if you stay in Tokyo for years, it may change up to 25,003%...in fact: If you smoke, your chance of dieing of cancer is already much higher than living in Tokyo ^_- Sorry guys...).
We all hope for the best and I try to update next week when I have some news about my scholarship. Let's pray and think of those poor people in North Japan who don't even have a home to sleep...I think this is much more tragical than counting 0,003% chances of dieing of cancer or 0,005% of getting a sick baby...
