One

I finished a drama named Atashinchi no Danshi for a few days ago, which is a series that has the same director, and part of the cast as another drama named Hanazakari no kimitachi e which I also loved. Atashinchi is on the topic of family, specifically the relationship between a deceased father and his adopted children. A tragic theme mixed with the silly humour that you´ll find in most japanese comedies. Atashinchi focuses more on the comedy and family bonding rather than the overly depressing trend that so many Japanese dramas feature.

Since we´re on the topic on Dramas, I´ve also recently been rewatching some parts of my favorite drama of all time, One Tree Hill. No matter how much I love some drama or movie, everything pales in comparison to One Tree Hill.

Lin will be here in three days time, super excited. Most of the preparations are done, I still have some studies to get ahead of in order to take a 10 days study break once she comes. Some of the Japanese History that I study upsets me though. It´s annoying to love one aspect of a country while you despite the other.

The weekend was spent at Gröna Lund with the family, And it´s been ages since I were in Stockholm. And the time that I went to the Japanese Embassy for 2 years ago doesn´t count, since that´s all I did. it was beautiful as always, and Gröna lund was, well, it pales in comparison to Fuji Quu-.

Lin will be here in less than two weeks time, The agenda includes a day in Stockholm, Uppsala, Old viking remnants in Västerås and then a few days in Strängnäs.

School has been going on for two weeks now, September will be slow-paced though, due to the professor being away for research. But it´s for the best, since Lin will be here for a while. The translation courses are really interesting, as well as the Japanese History one. But it´s really hard to keep track on it when it comes to the History, since all they did was civil war, one after another. It makes me want to visit Toshogu again, one of my favorite places in Japan, The Toshogu shrine in Nikko.

Best regards,
