Wow! I have to give people credit for being able to live like this. I like space too much. This definitely encourages one to get out of the house. This is how the world might become everywhere someday.
Gifted with not only charms in abundance, she can derive pleasure with limited possessions. I am sure that with such envious virtues, she is sure going to enjoy lifelong journey of endless happiness. Is it necessary to underline that her life partner is going to be the luckiest guy?
Japan is very much special to me. I mean people are sweet, kind, helping and all but I am always curious whether they are living their life happily? I mean they work really hard but damn man we earn to live ....!
"people have no tables in Japan, they seat on the floor, there's no space for tables"
Sorry honey, travel out of that ant city. I hate when people use Tokyo to refer to the rest of Japan.
It makes me angry that they take money for this little cubicule tbh. 69000yen are you kidding??
That 10 minute mark when they say smaller spaces are comforting to sleep in... I 100% agree. Best sleep I ever got was in the small racks (beds) on an aircraft carrier. Lets just say they call them "coffin racks" for a reason.
I like this girl, seems very down to earth. I have heard about motels in Japan where you are slid into a 6' by 3' by 3' (not even sure it's that big) space which is on top of other cubbies. Very claustrophobic
That’s a very positive way to look at things! I live in the same sized apartment in China in quite a busy area in between Hong Kong and Macau. There’s one huge benefit - cleaning is a bliss! All my friends who visit my place are first commenting on how I can live in a coffin like that but then they realize that it’s probably the cleanest apartment in China 😂
I live in California in the US so earthquakes are normal for us. But I would not be able to handle them if I was in a tiny space like that. Being claustrophobic would already be an issue but part of that fear is being stuck in enclosed spaces. Being in a earthquake prone place would exacerbate that fear 10 fold. Makes me anxious to just think about it.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
