The 25th Anniversary of My Website

My personal Web site was launched on January 25, 1999. As of today, a quarter of a century has passed.

The months go by quickly, don't they?

Unfortunately, I can no longer live off of my advertising income, so I am now working at a call center. I have very little time to update the site, so every day I go to bed when I get home from work, go for an early morning run, take a bath, and then go to work.

After all, morning jogging is essential. The best way to relieve stress is to exercise in the park. Maybe it's just my imagination, but I get the feeling that the trees I pass while running talk to me. When that happens, I say good morning to them.

Meanwhile, I continue to attend English conversation school and am working on improving my vocabulary using The Martian, which was made into a movie in 2015.

In fact, I saw The Martian on in-flight entertainment and enjoyed it so much that I decided to read the original story and bought the Kindle version after returning home.

However, I left it unread for a while. But the book contains many very useful phrases and vocabulary. So I have been studying using the book since last August.

I think this book is a great English learning tool and includes some very common words such as panting and gasping, which are not mentioned at all in regular textbooks.
