Printed flyers of the symposium on 10th March which I will attend as a speaker, and invited several friends between class breaks. Every time I do some advertisement, I hesitate to distributing flyers or posting info on medias to general public. So I prefer to talk with small number of persons and explain about the event face to face. I do understand the necessity and importance of somewhat mass publication if I really am confident with the content and really want others to come, but it’s a little hard for my feeling. Today, one of my friends, she knows well about my shyness, introduced me to others at a lunch event at which I didn’t originally intend to advertise about the event, and kindly created mood and opportunity to introduce the event to them. Once I made a presentation, most of them in the room approved and looked interested in. Many classmates told me they will come. I really thank her. I should be more brave and confident ( but not too much) with myself.

One of my friends has arrived at NY today. He quit his previous job and now is taking off before starting the next job, and will stay in NY for a week. I really hope this trip will be good refreshment for him.

Sleepy, so sleepy. I don’t know why.

友達が到着した。今日から1週間ほど滞在。晩御飯を食べてからアパートへ連れて行く。今日は時差ボケでお疲れみたいでぐっすり眠っている。

来月のシンポジウムのフライヤーを印刷して友達を誘った。ランチイベントがあって、その場とはあまり関係がないから、そこで前に出て全員に対してアナウンスするということは考えていなかったのだけど、同じく参加していた学部の友達の一人が手を上げて僕のことを紹介してくれて、それで前に出てアナウンスをすることになった。そうすると、本当にたくさんの人が興味を持ってくれて、参加すると言ってくれた。終わった後、その友だちに御礼を言った。シャイだから助かるよって。「知ってる」って返事。あぁ、ありがたいなぁ、本当に。想いがあれば伝わるのだ。人前に出て、不特定多数に向けて発信することにどうにも躊躇いがちだけど、いざやってみるとほとんどの場合、それが杞憂だと言えるぐらい、良い反応が返ってきた。もっと自信と勇気を持たなきゃだめだよね。

なぜだか眠い。本当に眠い。
