Aun J


Today has been a really great day, I had the usual school up until 5, then I were off with a friend towards the heart of Tokyo. There was a live concert of the orchestra named Aun J playing today which we were invited to, so of course off we went. I´ll have to revisit the area some other time since I still haven´t been to the Imperial Park yet, but I´ll leave that for another time.

Aun J is a Classical Orchestra, in a japanese fashion. I can´t even for the life of me name any of the instruments but I really do find them charming and it was really beautiful to listen to. They´re also very humorous, there was one passage where they played their respective instruments but on their smartphones instead, just for the irony in it:)

I took some photos which are included down below, and after the concert was done I of course bought one of their works and had it signed:) Which makes it my first CD bought in Japan, signed and all:) happy.



It´s June and some days are ridiculously warm, it´s still spring here, even though we´re moving towards the end of it. There´s been a few birthdays and some nights out since last, and the other day was spent in Warabi Park with bbq and volleyball, which was a lot of fun~

I´m all done with the spring terms psychology class, so I´m completely devoted to Japanese for the summer and fall. I´m still trying to choose what I´d like to study during next years spring semester though, and I´ve boiled it down to languages, either more Japanese or a fresh start in Chinese. I´ve decided that my goal with Uni is to become fluent in Japanese, and “morethendecent” in Chinese. Speaking 4 languages seems like a pretty neat perk, so that´s what I´ve decided to go for.

At the moment, I´m catching up on vocab, I´ve apparently just learned about half of the 35ish new words that we get every third day for the past 5 chapters. There´s this great little app named Anki that I usually use, it´s a flashcards app, and it works really great so vocab is generally not a problem, I´ve just not devoted that much time to it lately.

Seeing that makes me happy, you´ll continue to live on. But in my case, it´s not the same, in the future that I have left, how should I go about living it? That´s it, that´s all there is. 

A modified passage from the video above, which is from 1 Litre of Tears, I´m still longing for the day when I´m actually able to read the book, but there´s still a long way to go until then.
