Days of something 何かの日々

Today I found myself about exclaim “soon Halloween is coming up!”. Where did all the days go? What happened to this autumn? There’s so much to do in school. I’m studying like the serious student I am, to achieve something sometime in my future, hopefully. A feeling that sometimes can be very encouraging – what I do now will be rewarded someday. Or, just the opposite – what I do now has no relation to my current life or interests. But I guess, sometimes it’s hard to figure out what kind of realistic relation strength of materials has to my life right now. Besides from my university literature I try to have time to read some novels, at least from and to school and on the occasions when I ride the train. To somehow relate to Japan I’m reading Japanese contemporary literature. I can recognize many of the areas in Tokyo where the stories take place and things like food and Japanese culture brings back memories. Also, Haruki Murakami’s novels really fascinates me and I can’t stop reading. The melancholic stories and writing styles drags me away very easily. The other week I started reading my first Kenzaburo Oe, the Japanese nobel prize winner, novel – Somersault. I don’t know if it’s a good one to start with, and so far I’m not sure what to say about it really. By the way, maybe I’m heading for Japan over new years.
今日、”もうすぐハロウィーンだ!”って思わず大声で言った。こ秋、どこ行ってししまったの?大学でやることが多すぎ。まじめな学生の立場にあり、将来に何かいいことを達成するため勉強している。たまに、その考え方は凄く激励させる;今日達することは将来に認められる。でも、たまに反対の効果もある;現在やっていることは今日の生活や関心と関係ない。でも、材料強度学と自分の毎日生活のつながりを理解するのは簡単なことだはなかな。大学の教科書以外、施設を最近とく読む。とくに、大学への通い時間や電車に乗る時に。日本を思い出すため、現代文学を読んでいる。小説に説明してある東京の環境や食べ物、文化はいい思い出を思い出させる。村上春樹の物語の憂鬱なスタイルを読まずにはならない。この間、初めての大江健三郎の小説、宙返り、を読み始めた。初めての大江小説として読むのはいいかどうかわからないけど。ちなみに、御正月に日本に行くかもしれない。

I went to Uppsala and Stockholm this weekend. Stockholm was so cold we couldn’t walk around for shopping even. What happened to autumn? My train ride home to Gothenburg proved to be beautiful. The Swedish landscape is especially beautiful covered in glistening snow.
今週末UppsalaとStockholmに行った。散歩して買い物するのはできないほど寒むかった。秋どこ行ってしまった?StockholmからGothenburgへの電車旅はきれいだった。スウェーデンの形式はときにキラキラの雪があり時素敵。
