Happy birthday to me:)

Today’s the 22nd of May
I’ve turned 24ー(^^)!
I can’t believe it!!!!!

On the day of my birthday、 I went to a place where you can see wild seals (^^)!





Isn’t it awesome?
Are these babies all wild?
They’re taking a nap on the shore‼︎
They were really adorable (^^)!


You can watch them more closely than you can at the aquarium, and I could hear them snoring as they slept ♩


It was an awesome birthday!




It’s been 5 months since I left to study abroad、 but occasionallyーーー
I suddenly feel lonely, but it’s not homesickness、 I’m having fun!


And it was test week the other day、 and I came 1st in the class for the sparking test and writingーーーー!



Reading and listening were sunken ships。
I didn’t really listen to what people talked about when I was in Japan、 so maybe that’s what happened when I came here?
And I didn’t read books in Japan either! lol


I’ll do my best for the next one!








In the past, I wouldn’t have written such a long blog post、 so my level of writing has gone up quite significantly! lol

It’s been a while

Today I had a listening test. I was happy to get a high score! Reading test was difficult for me. I want learn vocabulary because if I don’t know a lot of vocabulary maybe I can’t read English so that’ why I want to learn it:)

[Note: Above was as written in original blog post]

It’s been a while since I blogged。。。


This week was test weekー(^^)
It’s endedーーー!
Suchー aー joyー!

In order to raise my motivation
I’ll be telling you all my marks!!!

Listening full marks
Reading 10/15
Grammar 39.5/50
Writing 11/12
That’s it (^^)!


Marks that would have been unthinkable to the old me!!!
I miss the times when I was called a genius!
You can’t simply say that you’re a genius if you’ve only just started learning (^^) lol
I’ve grown up。。。♩


I’ll go up in class next week!!!

Over a month has passed since I started studying overseas! I’m still completely unable to speak English (^^) I can hold a conversation at restaurants or when I’m buying ice cream…

留学してから1カ月以上経ちました! まだ全く英語喋れない(^^) レストランとかアイス買う時とか、会話するんだけど結局、笑顔でごまかすクセがついてるの笑 でも留学してすっごくよかったなって思う(^^) 日本にいたら会えない人たちとお友達になれて、たくさんの人に支えてもらってます! だから絶対に英語喋れるようになる!!! とりあえずジェスチャーを控えめにしなきゃね。笑 明日からまた学校だから寝ます! Good night❤️ #こんなに勉強について考えるの初めて。 #とりあえず #毎日 #英語で #日記書いてます #学校 #楽しい!

Over a month has passed since I started studying overseas!
I’m still completely unable to speak English (^^) I can hold a conversation at restaurants or when I’m buying ice cream、 but in the end、 I have this habit of dodging with a smile lol

But I’m really glad that I went to study abroad (^^)
I’ve become friends with people that I wouldn’t have met had I stayed in Japan、 and I received the support of many people!
So I’ll definitely become able to speak English!!! For the time being, I should moderate my gestures。 lol

I’ve still got school tomorrow, so I’ll be going to sleep!
Good night❤️ #ThisIsTheFirstTimeI’veThoughtAboutStudyingInSuchAWay。

Well, I’ll do my best on the next one (^^)!

I normally spend New Year’s Eve with the members、 so this New Year’s Eve was kind of weird ♩

I beg for your kindness in 2016 as well (^^)♩

Good afternoon (^^)!
31st of December!
It’s the last day of 2015!

The Countdown Live in Nakano Sunplaza is today (^^)!
It’s the last day for Morning Musume。’15’s Sayashi Riho-chan, so I hope she enjoys it to her heart’s content (^^)
I’ll cheer you onー

Berryz Kobo entered our hiatus in the 3rd of March this year、 and I’ve got support from all sorts of people once again since then (^^)

What sort of year was 2015 for all of you?(^^)

This year will be the first time I’ll be celebrating the passage of the new year overseas (^^)!
I can’t wait (^^)♩
I still know nothing about English、 but there are lots of people from vairous countries here, so it’s really fun (^^)♩
I’m likely going to enjoy myself
I have no idea when to use ‘do’ or ‘does’ in a sentence ✨

There’s only so little remaining of 2015!
I’ll be doing a bit of school revision after this!

I’ll start reviewing! lol

★Merry Christmas ★

Merry Christmas (^^)♩


It’s been a while since I last did an update!



Did Santa-san come for you?
He came to where I was (^^)!
I got presents (^^)♩

This is the first Christmas I’ve spent overseas♩
It’s tons of fun(^^)♩
I had turkey for lunch (^^)!


I went to school before going to study abroad, but there’s still lots for me to learn (^^)!
But that’s pretty fun too!
I’ll speak a lot!
(Probably making mostly mistakes along the way though。)
Recently I magnificently slipped up, constantly mixing up Texas with TAXI! lol



No problem 



Have a good day ♩
