Dorm Rooftop

Hi everybody! Just got back from college today, yeah Wednesday is my favorite day among weekdays since I only got 2 lectures which means I can go back to dorm earlier. My class today started at 09:00 and ended at 14:40 (On the other days I usually reach the dorm when the day is getting dark, because my last lecture ends at around 17:45. Ganbarimasu! *self-cheerleading*)

Well these photos bellow were taken Wednesday last week from my dorm rooftop :) Yeah, I love this space! It's not a really wide rooftop but I like it since I can enjoy me-time here accompanied by the refreshing breeze..

I took these photos around 4 p.m on a clear day. Yeah, starting from today until Friday, according to weather forecast, there will be rain. Moreover recently, the humidity here is increasing because there will be kinda rainy season every June in Japan. It was raining a bit outside just now but it had just stopped. 


                                  In the area where I live is surrounded by houses and mansion.

I live in a 4 storied dormitory in an area called Shonandai (around 30 minutes from Yokohama). Here I live with the other 14 foreign students from my uni (Ferris Univ.) and the rest are Japanese students from various universities such as Keio University, Bunkyo University, Meiji Gakuin University, Nihon Daigaku (NichiDai) and Kanagawa University. The heads of the dormitory are also living here together with us, we called them Ryocho-san and Ryobo-san which is the former are for the man and the later is for the woman (or in Bahasa Indonesia we say Bapak Asrama and Ibu Asrama). 

Everybody here is kind, we always give salutation like everywhere and every time we meet :D (at the Dining room, bath room, Ofuro (Japanese Public Bath), Rest Room, stair, corridor, and just everywhere! haha). We always give salutation to everybody that we meet, no matter if we know each other or not but that's fun! It feels like living in a big home with (more or less) a hundred of siblings :p Yeah, it feels like HOME here! we do many things together in a peaceful living atmosphere (y).

Well I will tell you more about my lovely dorm in the next occasion, hope you guys have a great Wednesday!

Keep The Distance Off

To me, one of the best helpings is not to burden anybody. I mean, when you can do something by your own effort, why you should bother anybody else for irrational thingies that only please you? 

Okay, perhaps you're now wondering why do I write such kind of thing in the beginning instead of giving salutation. Well, that's been my thought since sometimes ago and I haven't got the chance to share it with others. That thing always pops up in my mind when I feel bothered by somebody else who can easily ask (or even commanding) other people to do something just for the sake of him/her without even thinking other's feeling. Yeah, helping each other is good, it's a noble deed as long as the related ones are happy with what they're doing but sometimes the fact isn't as peaceful as that. 

I hope you guys aren't such kind of people. You know, people like that are the ones that I always keep the distance off or to be brief, they're the people that I dislike the most. I bet you're feel bothered too when you meet one like that. So the lesson is, don't be somebody that other people feel reluctant to meet to. Until now, I'm trying to be a better one to anybody and in anything. Every morning when I wake up, I always wish that today I will do the things better than I did before and always hang a bunch of hopes just to cherish myself. So yeah, from that 'morning ritual' I named my blog after! hehe.

Well, seems like my assignments are waiting for their turn to be accomplished so see you on the next posts! ^^

Hi, I'm Shabrina!

Hi! So this is my first post, and as a new comer in blogger I think it's not too bad to introduce myself at first! :)

I'm Shabrina, a girl with tons of passions and always try to find a way to grab all that I want. Currently I'm living in Japan as an exchange student for 2 terms in Ferris University, Yokohama. Japan has been my big dream as a place to visit, whether for studying or travelling. And now finally I'm here after years of wanting and struggling about how to reach here by scholarship :) Thank God, You really make it happen. 

How time flies, it's gonna be my second month to live here. I still remember how my family and my friends all gathered in airport and we all shared goodbye hugs, giving support to each other sharing tears and laughter :'') (I think I'll post about it later 'cuz it needs a bigger space to share hehe)

Well, I think it's enough for a warming up and see you on the next posts. Have a blessed Monday, tough people!
