My life at the University of Tsukuba is very hard for three reasons. First reason
is commuting. About eighty percent of Tsukuba’s students live in Tsukuba. It didn’t
take 20 minutes by bicycle to commute university. On the other hand, I live in Chiba,
my parent’s home. Every day, it takes one and a half hours to commute university.
And furthermore, I will be twenty years old next month although I have a curfew on
10:00 p.m. Because of this curfew I must leave Tsukuba on 8:30 p.m. Second reason is
club activity. I belong to Tsukuba Hoso Kyokai (THK). I create radio programs or TV
programs in my club. We have regular meetings on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
I often film or record programs on my holiday. There are no days which I don’t think
about my club. Third reason is part-time job. I work at Kashiwa Takashimaya which is
a department store and nearby my home town. I always work Tuesday and Thursday
6:00-8:30 p.m. These two days, I must leave Tsukuba as soon as 5th period class
finished. In this way, I am pressed by time and busy every day. My life is very hard.
However, I think these days will make me strong woman in future.
