◆My Life Is Finally Settling Down



My Life Is Finally Settling Down


   Sorry, people who are waiting for my blog to be updated1 to study English with it! (←It’s so wordy2… (^-^;) ) Writing a blog for our homepage is always on my to-do list3, but this month I just couldn’t do it. m(- -)m


  Until the 10th, I was keeping my nose to the grindstone4 for my Spanish test.


  Until the 20th, I was working on a translation job. I’m a night owl5, but I was a "super-duper6" night owl during that period.


  After that, we found out that our dog had pancreatitis7 and I had to take her to the vet literally(!) every day for a week for an IV8 and shots, finding some spare time between classes.


  My November flew away in the blink of an eye9!



  So there was not much to talk about, but I’ll talk about the things that helped me get through10 that stressful period — plants! (of course, I mean other than Will, our dog, our cat and friends)


  Sometimes, I enjoyed the energy of the plants. New sprouts came out at the stem of the plant or where I cut (because a branch was getting too long).   


  Sometimes, I was healed by the touch of the plants. When you touch them, they are like velvet.



  Sometimes, I simply wondered about the magic of nature — how they can make this color, how they can be in this shape.




  I have so many plants in my room. When I’m really tired, I even bring one or two plants just next to me on the desk and keep working. They have some special energy in them. That makes me feel really nice!


  You know, that’s why people who like flowers and plants keep buying them even though they say "I have no more space to keep them.", right?
