School Festival

My school festival has come near!! It will be held from 3 to 6 or 7 November. I look forward to it because there are no classes and I can relax. I am a member of a circle and my circle will exhibit jewelry, pictures and so on. Some of them will be sold :) I must make things for the festival, but a creative urge has not sprung up in me since last year. Therefore, I have done nothing except taking pictures. I will exhibit their postcards, so I hope visitors give me feedback. I hope you will enjoy the festival if you come.

Mysterious phenomenons?

Recently, something strange has happened. For example, a loud sound was heard when I was doing my homework alone in the living room at midnight and I put a book to the shelf in the library at noon. In the former case, my family was sleeping. In the latter, there was no one around me. Also, my mother said that when she was preparing dinner, TV suddenly turned off. She did not set the timer to turn off and no one even was near TV. What are these things? I wonder...

Stranger

Today, when I was walking around the station to go home listening to music, I was spoken to by a man who is about the same age as me. He said, “Excuse me...” and I ignored him. He hastily said, “Miss, sorry. Excuse me! Do you hear me?” I heard him, but I did not reply to him. The biggest reasons were that he was not a leaflet-bearer and I did not know his purpose. I have had such an experience before and the place had been another station where leaflet-bearers and so on have always been. I had ignored a man who had spoken to. He had also been about the same age as me. I had not felt anything because it had been usual there. However, today’s place was different from the last and I felt a pang of guilt...

Brass band

A newspaper said that TV programs about brass bands of high schools were popular recently. I watched the TV program on Wednesday because I like brass bands. I understood members of a brass band stepped up efforts, but I changed the channel. The biggest reason is that high schools in Kinki area did not appear. I come from Kinki, so I wanted to watch them. I also wonder why it focuses on brass bands of high schools. My elementary school and junior high school are famous for their bands and their performances are exciting. Therefore, I hope TV programs about brass bands of elementary schools and junior high schools are made.

Pon, his name

There is about five year old boy whose nationality, real name, and age are unidentified in Tochigi prefecture. A man was asked to take care of the boy by his acquaintance who looks a Thai. However, the Thai has not returned and the boy has been taken into custody by a child consultation office. He is regarded as a Thai, but he cannot receive the nationality of Thai because there is no proof that he is a Thai. He may not become Japanese because his birthplace is unclear and there is not strong possibility that he is a Japanese child. He can be supported to live by the Child Welfare Law until 18 years old. After that, he will belong to no countries and it will be difficult to live.
I knew it by a newspaper. Now, people of the child consultation office seem to look for a way to give him the nationality. I would like them to try their best for the boy.
