YouTube is waste of time

I have nothing to write for this blog article, actually.
Just I wanted to evaluate my improvement of English ability.

I have been watching YouTube video recently. The videos are both in Japanese and in English. But yesterday was almost Japanese. I watched what I want to watch, again and again, and I found the recommends full of chaos. The recommends contains a kind of conspiracies, like "June 21th, earthquake comes!".

Recently I'm enjoying what YouTube's AI recommend me after I choose a video. I, of course, know that it's ridiculous thing. That's wasting of time, and I need to read more books, instead of that.

I'm doing transcript training recently. That's to read a book and to write that down to my notebook. I guessed that makes me good English writer. And actually I can write this article more decently, great!.


Thinking in English

I've not been writing this English blog for a while.

I come to think that "thinking in English" or "speak in English in my mind" is great way to practice to generate English sentences. But the most tough point of this method is that you tend to think in your native language. It's unavoidable, though, thinking is free, so you can think in English anytime.

I tried this method about for 5 days and I come to think in English sometimes naturally. And I improved to listen to English recently. This is good way to train yourself, and it's free anyway.


In good shape

I'm in good shape.

I had habits to do strength training and to intaking protein powder, and to have a breakfast every morning. That made me healthy recently.

I'm not too fat, not too thin. And in good status in my mind. I'm in good shape except for hay fever recently.


doing lazily

It's holiday today.
I'll spend time irresponsibly.

I don't have any schedule for language training. So I'll do lazily today.

I'll go Starbucks and read the book in English that I'm reading now. And watch Netflix videos in my room. After that I don't come up with what to do.

Yesterday, I thought that I have to do TOEIC official practice test. But I reluctant to do that today.


Finished reading Blink

I finished reading Blink. And started reading The Upside of Stress.

I finished reading Blink. This book is strange because at the first part it shows "how pre-perception works" and after that It shows "how pre-perception doesn't work" to the end. I confused what the book wants to say. But I thought the conclusion is totally right.

I began to read The Upside of Stress. Within where I read, it want to say that stress has good point if you believe. In language learner's perspective, English in this book is easy for well read nonnative speaker.


I changed my routine

I changed my routine.

It's sometimes hot in daytime. So I changed timing of my exercise. Walking without breakfast was a little dizzy thing. But if I change the timing of intaking protein, I can adopt it maybe.


Sugar shortage

Sugar is bad for your health, but I need it maybe.

I felt wrong with my forehead after reading aloud in Mandarin. I suffered with something wrong, not headache, for a hour. It was solved after drinking a bottle of Dodekamin, cheap energy drink in Japan.

Maybe It was sugar shortage, I thought. So I bought some gumi for today.
