Monday, Ocotber 15th “When will self-driving cars arrive?”
I was wondering recently when will self-driving cars be available. I surfed the net to find out and the answer I got was surprising. Many automakers are planning to release self-driving cars by 2020!! Can you believe it?? That’s the Olympic Year in Japan! It was hard to believe but it’s true. Actually, in America there are already many self-driving cars going around in Arizona! Google launced a taxi service called Waymo. It’s already in service today.
Did you know there are 1.3 million people die every year in car accidents. 94% of that is just human error. If driverless cars are introduced we will hardly have any car accidents. It will save so many lives. I definitley think we should all use this new technology as soon as possible.
Wednesday, October 17th “Opening a Jar”
Couple of months ago, I got a souvenir from a student that went to the U.S. It was a Salsa dip. It’s from my favorite supermarket Trader Joe’s. I was really happy when I go it. I have one problem though. The lid is shut really tight so I can’t open it. I tried to open it many times but it’s stuck. I’ve been working out but I guess my strength is still not enough to open it. I wrote about this in my blog couple of months ago.
Recently, a different student gave me the same souvenir. I think she meant it as a joke because she knows I can’t open it. Now I have two jars that I cannnot open!!!!!
I’ll keep on working out until I can open it. 😂
Sunday, October 21st “It finally opened!!”
The student who gave me the Salsa Dip saw that I could not open the jar and she came to the rescue. She brought a handy jar-opener and we opened it together. It took two tries but it finally opened. I can finally eat it now. I need to go get some tortilla chips for it now. I’m looking forward to eating it this week.
Last Friday, I was really craving for hamburger so I went to Handsome burger. I usually don’t go out on weekdays but I really wanted to eat it so I went all the way there. It was really satisfying!! It’s still the best hamburger store in Nagoya.
