Good evening everyone!
How are you doing?
I just stumbled on my lj blog and took a look at my old blog posts over there...embarassing shit.
Back then I regularly read An Cafe's Blog and sometimes I posted translations on my own blog...
Idk whether some of you know, but I'm a fan of An Cafe, my favorite member is Teruki. Why?
This is one example:
("Teruki death" is a word-play...it's "Teruki desu" (It's Teruki)
Starting from today I, Nagata, have 3 days of no work.
So, even though it's the day after a live, I woke up early in the
morning and came to the Southern Islands☆ I got on 2 airplane flights
and came to Ishigaki Island.
Just like I did at Hachijou
island, I was riding around the whole time with a rental bicycle today.
Ishigaki island is really just filled with cows! There were also goats
too! And of course there's the beautiful ocean, and I'm just getting
healed the whole time. I could cry.
Long time ago when I used
to live in the main island of Okinawa, I would always get on my moped
and just go by myself to places I didn't even know and look for
beautiful sceneries. That linked to my trip to Hachijou island the other
day. I would get on my moped by myself, and as I look at the map I
would roughly decide my destination, but whenever I see an intriguing
small path or something, I'd go in...and then in the evening I would of
course go to the beach and gaze at the sunset. Also, I would e-mail my
family so many times too. I would attach pictures and say "this is ○○!"
When I talked about that to Yuuko san, she said "So
that's kind of like Teruki's means of escape?", and that really hit me.
But by "means of escape" I don't mean it in a negative way.
humans live their lives, they have fun times and hard times, right? And
I actually think that there are more hard times than fun times. So I
feel like the minus elements slowly start to accumulate. And at those
times, what's important is if you have an outlet for that. So that's
what the "means of escape" I was just talking about is. I think people
who have that can reset themselves. And people who don't have that, or
people who haven't found it yet just feel more and more pained.
my case, I guess my means of escape is being alone and placing myself
in the middle of nature. AnCafe is super fun, but there's also all kinds
of pressure too. Oh, I'll just say this now, but it's not like I'm
troubled with anything right now(^_^;) Don't do any unnecessary worrying
for me! *laugh*
Below is what was written in Tokyo FM's Mail Magazine↓
you are alone and surrounded by nature, you can realize all kinds of
things. Things like, maybe my worries are actually really small things,
or I'm standing only because I've been supported by the kindness from
the people around me. There are actually a lot of things you should be
thankful for towards everything around you. Even if small, there are a
I can't explain everything in words, but either way you can become more optimistic.
who are having hard times with friends or co-workers, people who are
being bullied at school, people who aren't loved by their family, people
who are crushed by expectations given by the people around them. Some
day I want to take you here to look at this scenery with me.
some reason I drank so much alcohol today. Even though I haven't slept
that much. Tomorrow I'm going to cross over to Yonaguni island.
I'm glad I got to know AnCafe. Good night."
