2010年冬季オリンピック会場のサイプレスにて滑っています

I have slipped the venue at the 2010 Winter Olympics at Cypress

Snowboarding is the past few years, it was 2.3 times at best be done, I'm going to like every weekend this year.

Perhaps because many a warm day, and there is no snow or was skinny, I have a terrible or hit by rain this year ... but. The heavy snow on weekdays or ... why. It is unfortunate to say the feeling has not left snow is cut by the end of the week but is slipping. I hope the snow is falling on the weekend!

I look forward to this weekend, so I went to stay in Whistler. Whistler if indeed there will be snow.

I put a picture of the first time this season when you slip into the first week of December. Here is one of the venues of the 2010 Winter Olympics called Cypress.

June 2

Looking back at the last year, I had many a good thing can be bad, I do seems to have been relatively stable year. I thought about why I think so, it may be because I worked full-time throughout the year perfectly.

It may be a matter of course for such would normally, for me (?) Since 2006 is apparently I looked back ... I have been a feat like that for years. Because I was caught in layoffs twice in the past 3 years (laughs).

Well, but I feel like that sent the apparently stable life for the first time in a long time, this year's goal might be to overturn it.

It is "to make your dreams come true" goal of the year.

is what I have in mind much since I was about 20 years old, you have come to the existence of life goals and how do you say such a dream come inflated for 10 years this number is two.

One is to work in (with the United States after the write) US is a home of software.

Longing originally to the United States dates back to his student days. I will be aspiring to Study in the USA under the influence of the English school that had to be started from the fact that I go get unsteadily to the solicitation of beautiful eyebrow at the age of 19 yea (w, I it was a really beautiful ). The result, you will remain in Japan to work for various reasons, did not study abroad.

Country called the United States a few times to target say come entangled in various sections of my life, originally I wanted to study abroad and now want to work in this country since then, full story are omitted I come to now been converted.

The second is a round-the-world trip.

(The title of the blog is not "Canadian Immigration and life" now, the original was "Solo Around the World") is a round-the-world trip, which is also the reason I started this blog. I have loved since I was a child and watch the scenery go to the land I do not know you do not know. Became a direct impulse to say I want to see with my own eyes a variety of scenery, people, culture and the world it is adult.

I had planned to say after finishing a one-year working holiday in Canada, and one year to go around the world, I had to give up due to circumstances at this time also. But began to make concrete plans for the trip again in 2007 I started this blog, we give priority to that you will need to obtain a permanent resident of Canada at that timing, started life in Canada rather than go on a journey and The journey will be put off I think it is important for me that I have today.

Of the two dreams that I also had left 10 years of my life in this year's goal is to achieve one or the other.

(State of WA), (State of WA), (State of CA), with offices in (state TX) Austin LA Olympia, the company is now on loan can be in the form of a residence in that worked full-time for more than one year Seattle, USA so (get L1 visa), I'm looking for a position in a field out the wishes seconded from a little while ago. It led to the phone interview for vacant positions came out in LA last week, I could not get a job in this difference of skills are required, unfortunately.

It is said that the personnel of the company because go surely be me in the long run, then there is also a rumor of a merger with sister company located in San Francisco colleagues many years this one I have been laid off , I've refused to achieve the dream that said various reasons even now in the way, around the world it is the dream of another and if so difficult if to give up at the timing of somewhere this year also I decided to journey to.

I recently read a book called "The Archemist" of Paulo Coelho. Have been translated into the original language is Portuguese. In the book I had been anxious from the old days, when there suddenly want to read, go to the bookstore to buy it as it is, I finished reading in one sitting.

I shall say that this is going to look for treasures in the Egyptian shepherd boy, I tried repeatedly to read my life story. It was easy to have definite all, whatever you do if you think that when I was still young. I've been working it's not possible to out over the years, mysterious power said Paulo to achieve their dreams, so as to Omoikoma yourself it detrimental to their life, or it is their really I think he was becoming so prevents you from what you want to do.

Paulo has called "The world's greatest lie" that mysterious power, to achieve what we dream without losing the "lie" that the goal of it this year.

February 2

Happy New Year everyone. · · · W but it February already.

To a party at a friend's house, the New Year's Day New Year's Eve ate raw fish and rice cake with us in the house of another friend section. With sake of course. I think Japan reached a new year seems like it for the first time in Canada. I was impressed and delicious cooking and drinking. It is also Japanese and Japanese sake.

There were a lot last year, too. There was also a good thing or bad thing, I think, as was often good year. I am a friend of many years could. However, as a Mariners fan was the worst year · · ·.

I did not update this blog for almost a year now · · ·. When I wrote last time, it was (a state that has been eating the free meal that is) state was looking for assignments back to the head office of the DT from the destination client of Burnaby in the work of the company now, of Vancouver from March and then will be involved in the work of BI (Business Intelligence) project at the client's head office is located in downtown, have to now.

What say previous project and analyzed in order to move to the new system the old system has a very developed during 1990s 80 clients, systems made of old technology further than technology and learn in school for analysis, but it was a project very difficult and very, etc. or not there are still documents of the time, it is a project right now is that we develop and propose a system from one using the latest technology, so easy to do.

Well, I will be 35 years old this year. I had noticed it a lot with age. It was from the past 30 fast. However, I noticed recently, is like there is more strength now than I was about the age of 30. Perhaps, you can have (about 35 minutes one way at a brisk pace) walk to the company in the summer of commuting, I might have been doing well thanks to a game of tennis on the park in the immediate vicinity of the house. I do my best so that young and in good health in the future.

I have to say that I've been blogging for many months left once again, I'm alive and well.

Oh, Happy New Year. Thank you again! It (w is late)

Months passed in March has begun work on a new company. W is safe for a while because I get past the trial period for the time being. I had been working for a while at the destination client of Burnaby, and now I'm looking in the following assignments in the headquarters of the downtown.

I have to say that I've been over 40 minutes each way to commute in the traffic jam every day Burnaby, now I am a carefree commute Skytrain. It is good that I dressed I reduce the stress of traffic jams and environmentally friendly gasoline I float. Hooray for Canada Line.

Work at DT is the first time in July 2007. I feel like a lot has changed in three years only for a moment I will. It was also the Olympics. Last year about this time I wish I was in the midst Olympics Come to think of it. During the Olympics I enjoyed very excited people from different countries can have more than usual to DT hindsight. Hockey moment of victory I will not forget.

November 23

I had been looking for a new job from a little while ago, I did not Itala to the point where you do not find a job pretty good, for an interview, the interview because I was just the company that contacted me recently is likely to be quite nice When I received, I was going to talk progresses in leaps and bounds, works for the company.

It is a company called Sierra Systems, I knew when I first came to Canada from this company, in fact working holiday. Because, there is a sign on the roof and the table has offices on the ground floor of the same building as the Consulate General of Japan in Vancouver 24-26, ah, "so was looking for a job in Canada, I was the SE-based company has a system remember I thought the "Na (company is actually a management consulting firm and IT).

Project, which is responsible because it was 12 months, I thought it would be (contract) contract for 12 months surely, it was permanent position (full-time employees). It boasts great benefit plan.

I dont think that is responsible for the project must work hard because it seems quite tough, so I'll try to do my best as it is the work worthwhile.

May 7

Early ones, just one year after I got a job with the company now.

Paid leave for the first year I have been using for nearly 2 weeks already actually in two weeks, for which you have the time off (like a time off in lieu) for about two days overtime, I have left more than 5 days after you calculate it was. (In the State of the BC. 1.5 times the salary if you get time off can be used as a break of 1.5 times. And overtime)

(It is because I have been unemployed until the beginning of July Well), I was going to take this opportunity to take a leave of absence last summer because it did not take off at all.

So, from July 10 to 18, I am likely to be went to the camp to Rocky 8 nights 9 days. Rocky Camp is the first time in three years. Last trip I do my best, but there was a time unfortunately have food poisoning at this time to be able to camp fun be careful.

Come to think of it, I wish the previous record of the journey ends in the middle · · ·. I think much memory has faded, but I truly thing because three years ago, so the precious memories of the trip, and try to write until the end to rely on photos when you have time.

Last week, I was 33 years old. I often said that I would Zoro eye. That's a modest age w thin that much less interesting Well said.

At about the age of 20, there was an image of a person or an adult I really 33 years old. I thought I made it myself, and I did not have such a big deal actually.

However, I think if I look around, and some people have a different way of living in the same world, and its people than we're adults surely. 33-year-old who is married with children, there should be different even in the same age can be seen.

Alright, tomorrow is Canada Day (7/1). Is on hiatus. Will it become a holiday then there is the issue of what the actual weather is going to make a kayak on the lake so far. Lucky you and sunny.

Trying to decide what commuting by bicycle this summer, I bought a bike. Buy and helmet and key bicycle at Canadian Tire in Richmond after work, I who had been carried away, but I was riding home on a bicycle that, that I've left behind the car at around 11 pm w to be aware of, I went to take the Skytrain ride in a hurry. Aware of the day was good though. No doubt that the next day I did not notice if late.

Approximately seven kilometers from home If you look at the map company. Kana 20 minutes and it is 10 minutes by car bike? A gradual uphill Oak bridge is surprisingly tough, the rest are easy flat. The weight also float floating gasoline may be the environment. W is dressed in a good thing.

April 13

What are you doing everyone I had become a long time to post since February 11 super?

I no longer put extra pressure is applied and the next it was expected to do and what not to post once, because it was only this reservoir. Conversely, even if said so, I decided to write in a desultory sort of way that I thought.

Winter it is speaking the Olympics end, something without necessarily has changed in the Olympics saying, or depression as usual, real estate prices in Vancouver will continue to rise even though the unemployment rate does not change much, and good news for the time being I feel that I told you place that spring has come to the end.

Sakura is now most types it had gone over now beginning to grow from about the end of February. I know that the big tree in front of the room where moved in January was cherry. Even before I had a cherry just before the balcony, for some reason seems to have the edge and cherry. I often realize when Sakura just so anxious, I wonder myself as I'm still a Japanese.

Come to the company you are working now (Internet provider), 9 months have passed. I get a raise in salary to about lacking a little on the amounts Last month, I hope at the time of the interview, I was going to let me review again in March months because they are not yet satisfied.

I thought of going back even to Japan because they remain more than a week after a vacation with pay, can not do anything back one week stood in Japan we know, I decided to go back for more than two weeks in the fall was. Paid will be charged will be for three weeks in July, I will be able to use for 4 weeks plus one week remaining now. Not be paid because the three weeks and five years do not work in a Japanese company had previously worked for three weeks to become a year and I'm glad.

Everyone likes baseball, kicked off. I see the results in the news on TV, so I can not see I will not be able to see truly professional baseball in Japan is, MLB is going to Seattle to see every year. Twice a month in June, May 4, I have already taken a ticket this year. I immediately went to look at the Detroit Tigers game on Sunday of this week.

Nowadays I have wanted to go to camp soon became a little more warm.
