The eighth poem describes a moment when I studied for Center Exam to enter Gunma University. I was eighteen years old. I neglect my studies, especially English when I was tenth and eleventh grade student. So, I had many things to study for entrance exam when I became eleventh grade student. I studied not only English but also other subjects. Studying made me tired, but, when I studied English, it made me a little happy because I like English very much. However, I don’t like to study something, so it made me sleepy.
The ninth poem describes a moment when I was staying in Australia as studying abroad. I lived with my host family for one month. The last day of staying there, they held a party in the evening for me. There are various dishes on the table. They looked delicious and smell really good, especially sausage. Before we eat dinner, we had to pray because my host family is Cristian. I’m not Cristian, so, when they pray closing their eyes, I thought I immediately eat delicious sausage. While they prayed, I had a lot on my mind about that sausage.
