The 3rd time is the best ...
Hello friends ,
On Thursday I had an interview with NHK TV, that was at 6:00pm , I was so excited and nervous in the same time , the reporters talked to me on Skype ,but guess what ? my microphone didn’t work !!!!!!.
my mom phoned our neighbors to borrow their mic, but they didn’t have any ! I was very upset , I kept trying to make it work , but after an hour I gave up , we postponed the interview to the next day .
my family and some relatives who were in the living room tried to make me feel better. one of my relatives know some words in Japanese ,since he worked with a Japanese phone connections company , he taught me 9 words , then we read some old posts and had a nice evening .
Then at 9 :00 my dad’s cousin brought me his friend’s mic , I felt so relieved .
In the next day , I was happy and anxious to make the interview , at 3:00 pm I called the reporter , he said " we hear you well , we will start now ".
I said " ok , just a sec "I wanted to bring a paper where I wrote the Japanese words.
Then I became ready to start , but the mic didn’t work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I kept trying and trying, but I couldn’t .
I was so mad , we called some nearby relatives , & neighbors , but we couldn’t get another mic . I was afraid that the reporters were bothered or they will not postponed the interview to another day again .
I cried , but the reporter told me not to feel upset , because Japanese people believe in an aphorism that says " the 3rd time is the best " , I felt so much better when he postponed the interview to Saturday at 6 :00 pm , just then my smile returned to my face .
In the afternoon we visited my mom's friend , then we went to search for new mic , we went to Jamea street ( there are so many shops sell computers and it’s stuff) , but it was Friday , the shops were closed except one , we bought a new mic !
on Saturday , I had the interview and the mic was working good , my mom sat next to me , she was calming me down , I was excited and I talking hasty , I don’t know why the words came out so quickly !..
I had fun , and got new friends too , and it was my first voice interview , hoping that the next interview will be with Dr . phil (as a phenomenon teenager guest !!! heheheh just kidding ) or with Oprah ? who knows !
Yesterday ( Sunday ) , I went to my relatives’ house , my grandma and grandfather stayed in the house , because we expect home inspection as few tanks were in the neighborhood. when we were back my grandma told us what happened in our street ,she said:
“ we saw some tanks , while you were out , the US soldiers locked the ends of our street and inspected some houses , after awhile we heard an explosion, my grandma looked from the window and she saw heavy GREEN smoke , interfere with seeing the next door neighbor !!! “
what did the soldiers do ? what was this smoke ? and why ? no one knows .
what baffles me is that there are 4 houses in the neighborhood being inspected lately from time to time ?????!!!!!!!! .
I don’t know those neighbors , they live at the end of the street, but there must be something behind those continues inspections ?.
Live strong !
Sunshine with love .
