Hello ～～ with a pretty spring breeze :)
My sweet Steffi became 22 years old ^o^ I hope we can hang out soon again...
Since high school you`re always by my side and I really love you ^^
I`m working on the books for my scholarship project since I`m already awake at 8 am. Pretty early for me ^^; But I finally have the motivation to do it.
And I`ve checked some things for the Waseda Graduate School...after all, I`m thinking to apply this year. I`ll graduate with an A (average of 1,3 in the German grading system) and I think it would be pretty sad if I don`t try to achieve more than my teacher`s license.

Of course I will wait how the radiation levels will look like after 2 months. If they are increasing Yoshi and I are thinking to go back to his family in South Japan. Even though it would mean he has to lose his new job, his priority is our life`s quality and safety.
As long as we`re together, we will be fine everywhere. Yoshi has a friend in Nagasaki and if the levels are getting bad for Tokyo, we were thinking to go there.
But let`s hope for the best :) The American company my father`s working for is dealing with analysis machines for radiation and elements in food, chemical substances and water. It`s good staying informed with real facts.
I`m glad seeing foreigners staying with their Japanese families, too (although some NEWS say the opposite...). I had a great talk with an American last night whose wife is Japanese and doesn`t want to leave her parents in Sendai behind. So they decided to stay, although his family back in America is going crazy. He said Japan is his home for more than 12 years now and he could never leave his family behind. Even though he is worried, he finds the safety in his beloved ones.
Maybe that`s what life about...you see the real value of it in the pessimistic moment when you have to decide who you put first. Yourself or the one in front of you. That`s what love is about. Not being able to think as rational as you normally do. And being loved in the same way back.
For those foreigners who don`t see Japan as a big shopping centre or amusement park for their spring holidays, those who have a real life here, with family&friends, a job...for those, the 03/11 was/is a big test of their staying power...I`m impressed how many want to stay although the pressure from their families abroad is that huge.
Anyway ～ now a topic change.
The Sakura is beautiful :) I was again really happy seeing them as beautiul as the past years.
Yesterday was also my anniversary day. Yoshi and I decided to stay in bed the whole day. We had so many things to talk about...talking through Skype everyday for hours isn`t the same. It felt simply good being together.
We wanted to buy some small presents. Something which is useful. I don`t think the anniversay day should be abused with expensive presents...and we both wanted something which appreciate the meaning of being a couple. We headed to OIOI and looked for key holders since we will move to a new apartment in summer. Sadly they were already closed and so we simply took some purikura, ate dinner in the restaurant of our first date (great choice!) and relaxed at home.
Seems like we will get our presents at Monday XD
But I`m glad that the "save energy" projects around the town are working that well...
even though it means that shops close earlier.
Everyone have become so frugal...I`m impressed.
Next week we want to rent a car and check out the cherry blossoms in Kamakura ～～ I can`t wait! We`ve planned this trip for months. I hope I can take many photos then.
Ok ~~ Now I need to continue with my thesis :)
