Essay #My life is journey

My journey started in Kumamoto on September 28th. I have a father, a mother and three sisters. I lived in Minamiaso until the Kumamoto earthquake occurred. It was difficult for me to go to school by a train, so I moved Ohzu town with my mother and my sisters.
I graduated to Choyo elementary school, Choyo junior high school and Ohzu high school. When I was an elementary school student and junior high school student, I was a member of the basketball club. Practice was very tough for me. I have thought that I wanted to quit the club, but I didn’t quit it because I like to play basketball. When I was a high school student, I joined the badminton club since I wanted to start new things. Ever now I still like to play sport still. I have been interested in many cultures since I was a junior high school student. Because of that, I like English the best. I have participated in the English memorization contest twice when I was a junior high…

Chemical secret

'John, these waste products are dangerous!' she said. 'We've got to stop putting them in the river!' (p. 19)

The job was too good. There had to be a problem - and there was. John Duncan was an honest man, but he needed money. He had children to look after. He was ready to do anything, and his bosses knew it. They gave him the job because he couldn't say no; he couldn't afford to be honest. And the job was like a poison inside him. It changed him and blinded him, so that he couldn't see the real poison - until it was too late. When I was reading this book, I remembered about Minamata disease. John nust have thought whether he say about poison or not. He told true things, but he became poor. I thought that it is strange.

The omega files

They worked for the top man in the Brussels office of EDI, and only for him. (p. 2)

In EDI (the European Department of Intelligence in Brussels) there are some very secret files - the Omega Files. There are strange, surprising, and sometimes horrible stories in these files, but not many people know about them. You never read about them in the newspapers. Hawker and Jude know all about the Omega Files, because they work for EDI. They think fast, they go all over the world, asking difficult question in dangerous places, but they don't always find the answer. I don't know whether this organization exist or not. I was scary for this situation. I wonder Japan do something behind, too.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

And she ran quickly across the field after the Rabbit. She did not stop to think, and when the Rabbit ran down a large rabbit hole, Alice followed it immediately. (p. 2)

This is the story of Alice's dream, one hot summer day long ago. A dream of Wonderland, where the White Rabbit wears gloves and the Caterpillar smokes a pipe ... where the Mad Hatter is always having tea with the March Hare, and where the Queen of Hearts wants to cut off everyone's head. It's all very strange, but then, anything can happen in a dream world. I thought that Alice was unafraid. If I was Alice, I don't follow the rabbbit because I'm scary. At the end of story, I realized that this story is Alice's dream.
