My Christmas holiday was dedicated to doing my coursework. The following day after submitting the essay online, I flew back to England.
Just one thing that I learnt this time was I couldn’t work on my studies in Tokyo because my family, friends and even colleagues contacted me frequently and the time was taken up with responding, and the temptations were many! Next time, I will inform them of my return date late so that I can concentrate on doing my own thing first.
During the holiday in Tokyo, I met up with Asuka for the first time since 2012. He has changed greatly in the last three years. He got an MBA at a UK business school, got married and changed his job. We enjoyed chatting for a short time at a bar, where a French artist was playing piano and singing. When the artist approached us, he spoke to the artist in French and they talked to each other for a while. It surprised me that he studies French as well, I heard him speaking English and Italian though! This is how he always inspires me to study hard.
