Dance Dance Dance

Well, I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving day.

I want to thank for this holiday, a half since we don't celebrate thanksgiving in Japan and it was totally "Thanks giving" for me, and a harf because it was so exciting that it made me feel like studying.

I was in NYC. I went to see the Macy's parade, the Statue of Liberty and so on. That was just ok for me; they were just sightseeing places anyway.I want to thank for artistic aspects of NYC.

I went to Metropolitan Museum, Although I have been there several times, still that place enchants me. It is huge, and you always have to decide what you are going to see before you go there.

I chose to see modern art this time.

I found some pieces of my favorite artist, Joan Miro. His paintings are awesome; most of them are abstract, and I have no clue where objects in the picture come from. They are always full of vivid colors, which he uses contrasively and expand the world of his pictures. There is move in the pitcure. However, there is conherence in the pitctures. There is silence.

These silence and move in the same picture drive me crazy. How does he achieve to put these contradict factors into one picture???

I was watching the same picture of him for almost 30 minites. I thought I talked to the artist.

In the daydream with him, he was working on a piece. I asked him why he could draw like that. He told me that it was a piece of cake and showed me how to. Then he took a pen, and without thinking, he started drawing. Objects naturally came out from the tip of his pen and sit on paper.

He told me that the important thing is to dance. Let your body dance. Let your pen dance. Let your brain dance. Dance dance, and dance, so that your experience and creativeness come out together with steps.

He said his dance was sometimes slow but sometimes rapid. That is why his paintings have silence and movements.

I want to be like him. I want to be a person who can have movements and silence at the same time. And I thought it was the time for me to study in order to accumulate some experience to my empty brain.

Dance dance, and dance.

Motivation 100%

At the beginning of Thanksgiving Yay

My Future

I was thinking what to do as my career after graduation. Here are two of them.

1. I want to establish "Asian Union."

I want to make a bound in Asia, pretty much like EU.
This will proceed peace in the region, and less developed countries will get profit from it.

2. I want to prevail peace in the countires which does not have it in the territory. As a Japanese who has had peace since the birth, I do not think it is fair that the place of birth determines whether a person can enjoy peace or not.

The method would be "Peace Education," which tries to stop the cycle of hatred and revenge. I want to give peace a power, and power to the people who love peace. Only people's power can change the world.

Sounds like a plan, doesn't it?

Racial discrimination

Riots have been prevailed in France since last October. Those who riot are the young immigrants or their descendants who have been suffered from unemployment. The unemployment rate of the young, aged from 15 to 25 in France is 23%, which means one of four young people are unemployed. That's a lot.

I was thinking about my French friends. As an international student, I am rather get to know students from outside of the U.S. than American students.

I talked to her online a week ago. I met this French girl here; she used to go to Keene State. I remember that when we were talking, she said she was having a hard time getting a job in France. I did not think why so at that time, but maybe that is because her parents are immigrants.

My role model now is also a French guy. He is so cool. I met him in Berkeley, California. He calls Samuel Huntington a racist. He loves art and always talks about it when he drinks. He is 27 years old.

I remember he said he also had a hard time getting a job in France because he is a descendant of immigrants. He said some company's personnel people saw his race and said no.

Now I feel the riots In France closer to me because I have these friends there. It is unworthy thing that a person is judged by their race, sex, color of skin, opinions, characters and nationality. And I hope things get better there.

p.s. Here I predict that in 20 years, racial problems will be a problem in Japan.

My future view is this;
1. North Korea collapses, or unification of the North and South succeeds.
2. People in North go South to seek jobs.
3. However, the systems in South Korea of taking them as citizens are not yet ready.
4. A lot of people in Korea escape to Japan.
5. Racial problems between Korean and Japanese occur in Japan.

Japan has to prepare the systems for accepting refugees and immigrants.

Hey guys! This is who I am! Yey!! Hahaha...

I am writing an essay for transfer to another university. I have to write about myself, and I got stuck. I don't know what to write.

This feeling is the same as when I have to introduce myself.

You might have had experience that you had to stand up and introduce yourself in front of other students in the beginning of semester or whatever. I can't do that. I can not find any legitimacy in introduing myself.

A question that I always have for introducing myself is this; "Do I understand or perceive myself correctly?" The image of myself that I perceive must be distorted in favor of myself, and I can never understand who actually I am.
When I talk about who I am, my subjective perception always comes together, and more I talk about myself, more the explanation gets doubtful. It sounds too good to be true.

So when I introduce myself, I feel weird just like when I am listenning to my voice that I have recorded. The voice does not sound like mine but somebody else's.

Then, back to the essay that I have to write about myself, what am I supposed to write?
"I am a great person who can always think of others. I would like to use my talent to help people..." like this?
or "I am a radical person who can stimulate people in your university, so it is beneficial for your university to have me as a graduate." like this?

HAHA, it's great that I can say anything without the truth. I am not great nor radical at all. I am narrow-minded and shy.

What should I write?.... I don't know, but I have to write this anyway...
