School keeps a person busy, ja? School is also the reason that I haven’t been able to write anything in a long time. This year is a lot of fun though, so I don’t regret being busy.
Speaking of school, conferences are coming up and my teacher asked me to make sure that Ha’ri will come. The teacher wants to tell Ha’ri that I’m doing well in school and that I should start thinking about what I want to do when I finish with high school. UnglÃ¼ck! I think I want to play the violin for a living, but I’m not sure. It’s also scary to think that they may disapprove of it too. Tohru would side with me though, I know it. So would Momo.
Momo still sneaks in to see me sometimes. She says that I’m a good big brother and that she is very happy that she can call me that. I think I will give her a big lollipop next time she comes!
I just wish there was some way that mama would call me her son again…
Summer vacation is here and it’s almost half over now. People always say that spring is a time for rebirth, but I was always considered a late bloomer. Over just the past few months, I have grown and now I’m even a lot taller than Tohru. Watch out Yuki and Kyou! Before you know it, I’ll be taller than both of you.
Many of the mÃ¤dchen I see on the streets like to stare at me as if I’m some sort of foreigner, but it doesn’t bother me. I say, “Let them stare! Momiji doesn’t care!”
I also pray that my second year in high school will be a nice change. Now that I’m older, people will treat me less like a child and that might mean that I can’t get away with as much as I used to. It also seems as though all of the childish games of “Cops and Robbers” have to end. At least I still have my friends to keep me company. Even if we can’t play in a childish manner, we can play other things like Dai Hin Min.
Dai Hin Min seems to be popular among high school students. Sometimes the others play it and I watch. It might be hard to learn the rules of course, but I am willing to try.
I guess I should be going. Ha’ri is calling because he said that he would take me over to Shi-chan’s house for dinner since Tohru invited me. He also says that I shouldn’t walk around the city after dark.
