Summer has started!

A full month earlier than in an average year.

Give me a break.

Don:t need any more hot and humid summer.

Rain, rain, come back here.
Come again with cool air.

I hate the muggy, sweaty, sticky summer... :aserimasu:

I don:t know where I'm headed.

I do know what the new book wants to say.

It:s like the destination is clearly seen but the road is hidden in a fog.

Strange but true.

I have been banging my head against this block for nearly a month.

There:s got to be a way.

When the fog slowly clears, it will be clear as a bell.

I will wonder why I haven't seen it sooner.

I know I will.

Haven't made a breakthrough just yet, but...

Writing bits here and bits there.

Hoping I'm mmoving in the right direction.

The hardest parts left out, though.

Like 外堀から埋める sort of situation.

Problem is that the hard part is the main thing.

Which is 実習篇.

理論篇 is the 外堀。

In the mean time, that is, until 実習篇 becomes crystal clear,

I watch as many TV dramas I can.

writing down 決まり文句.

I watched and listened to so many episodes.

I think I began to see Bitesize Speaking in a different light.

which is great.

dramas aren't so good but 決まり文句 are fun to collect.

Truly amazing how much of dialogues are in 決まり文句。

I'll show you some examples soon.

I'll go back to my draft now.

See you again soon.

BTW, I'm at Starbucks Kunitachi now. :coffee:

We'll have another スタバ会 soon as well.

I'm not sure my new account has been set up correctly or not.

In any case, I have started tweeting 日本語混じり英語 @sakaibitesize1.

If @sakaibitesize1 doesn't work, look for sakai@bitesize.

I hope we will enjoy chatting (tweeting) in English/Japanese. :pencil:

It's been hot, really hot and humid.

I want a place not hot, comfortable.

with an ice coffee, 100 yen, non-smoking.

reading a manga in english.

I wonder how long has it been being hot.

I'm getting tired and tired.

I sang.

You aren't my sunshine ♪〜

You make me unhappy ♪〜

Please don't take my rain away ♪〜

Sunshine keeps on staying.

It doesn't seem in a mood to go away.

I really hate the muggy, sticky, sweaty, humid heat.

I hope it goes away.

This kind of weather used to end in 夕立.

Do you remember?

We could bear the heat and humidity simply because there were going to be refreshing shower at the end of the day.

No such relief these days.

I long for 夕立.

Please... :aserimasu:

No 夕立 yet.

Funny I heard 蝉の声 for the first time this summer.

It was only for half a minute or so.

Then no 蝉の声.

蝉の声 and 夕立、that's what 夏休み is about.

Come on, cicadas.

Come on, 雷さま!

my thoughts are with people in the area suffering from the heavy rain a few weeks ago.

Not least because my sister's family lives in Hiroshima.

No noticeable damage to them or to their home.

But there were shortage of everything, she told me on the phone.

Train service was unavailable until a few days ago.

Then there came the typhoon.

No major damage has been reported today.

But a lot can go wrong yet.

Hoping everyone in the hard-hit area to hang in there. :rainbow:

Have you head of 阿部謹也?

I read his book now.

I’m not expecting that I read like his book.

And I hadn't known him.

So I think I may be one of tadokists.
