JET Programme

I was accepted for the JET Programme this year. I’ll be leaving for Japan on August 2nd. 

Unfortunately, I won’t know where they’re placing me until sometime in June. Crossing my fingers for Kansai, but I’m really not picky!

好きな人の前だと、感じ悪いコになっちゃう!

私は同じクラスに大好きな男のコがいます。でも、そんな男のコ話しかけられると、恥ず

かしくって、ついつい「何ッ?」とか「うるさいな~!」とか、感じ悪い態度で接してしまうんです・・・。このままじゃ、どんどん嫌われてしまう気がします。きっと、とても性格の悪いヤツだと思われているんだろうな・・・。彼のことが大好きなのに、こんなふうに避けてしまう自分がイヤです。これから好きな彼にどう接していけばいいのでしょうか?教えてください。

気持ちはわかる。でも、素直にならなきゃ!

中2かぁ・・・。しかたないよ。愛情表現がうまくできないことなんて、いくらでもある。好きな人を傷つけてしまうことって、誰にでもあるからね~。特に、今はそういう時期なんだと思うよ。もちろん、僕にもあった。好きだからこそ、ちょっかい出して、からかっちゃうようなこととかさ。もしかしたら、今でもあるかも。大人になっても、やきもちを焼いたり、照れくさかったり、好きな人の前で素直になれないときってあるもんだよ。だから、あなたの気持ちはすご~くわかります。でもさ、よく考えてみて。自分のココロに問いかけてみて。本当はどうしたいのか?そしたら、自分のココロに素直になってみたら?このままじゃ、きっと後悔する。彼に嫌われてしまったことじゃなくて、素直になれなかった自分に・・・。まぁ、俺もその場にいたワケじゃないからわかんないけど、きっと、彼はあなたが思ってるほどイヤな態度だったとか気にしてないと思うな。それくらいで女のコを嫌ったりしないって。とにかく、今は素直になることがいちばん!

In front of the boy I like, I become a bad person!

There’s a boy I really like in the same class as me. But, whenever that boy talks to me I’m so embarrassed that I unintentionally reply with things like “What?” and “You’re so annoying~!” with a very bad attitude… If it continues like this, I have a feeling that he’s gradually going to hate me completely. He’ll definitely think I’m a very rude person, won’t he… Even though I like him very much, I don’t like the me that is going to drive him off. From now on, what are some good ways I can make contact with the boy I like? Please tell me.

I understand your feelings. But, you have to be honest!

Second year in junior high, huh… There’s no helping it. It’s a difficult thing to express one’s love, no matter how old you become. And regarding hurting the feelings of someone you like, it also happens to everyone. Especially since you’re at that age, I think. Of course, it happened to me, too. Because you like the person, if you confess you may be teased or something similar. Perhaps it even still happens now. Even when you become an adult, you still have things like jealousy and awkwardness and there are also times when you’re in front of the person you like that you can not be honest. Therefore, I really understand your feelings. But, try thinking clearly. Try asking your heart. What is it you really want? Then, what if you try being honest with your heart? Continuing the way you are, you’re definitely going to have regrets. It’s not that the boy is going to hate you, but rather that you can’t be honest with yourself… Well, it’s not like I’m in your position so I don’t really know, but I definitely wouldn’t worry about whether he thinks you have a bad attitude. He wouldn’t hate a girl for something that small. At any rate, for now the most important thing is to become honest!

When you go to another country, and become addicted to something there, then you go home and all you do is think about it. When you finally get over the cravings, people start posting pictures of it on tumblr.
