I had an interview with the person in charge of a project.
The project is about 50 Japanese living in Australia,
and the interview is going to be presented to future students.
In the interview, one question made me think.
It was something like “where is your ‘home’”?
“What does ‘home’mean to you”?
Although I have been in Sydney for 11 months,
I have never thought of this place.
I always think about Kyoto, and I prefer living there.

Why is that
I have my family there, but other than that, why can’t I regard Sydney as my home?
There are some possible reasons:
- I have never felt deeply at ease for very long
since I do not have much private time, or a room to myself.
- I am not working, so I save money for food.
My eating habit is terrible, and it might make me feel insane sometimes.
- I am doing my Master’s degree, so I always have to study and don't have a lot of free time
to hang out with my friends and with my roommates.
- My English level is not so high.

However, one idea which came up was
“there is no person or institution here for whom I make much effort”.
In Japan, I was working for my students, my family and myself.
Although I am mainly studying for my future students, they are not in fount of me now.
Thus, the situation will not give me a sense of satisfaction.

Where is ‘your home’
What does ‘home’ mean to you

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.

1. ruffle (in a newspaper)
= to make sb annoyed, worried or upset
2. sensibly (in a newspaper)
=
3. etch (in a newspaper)
= to cut lines into a piece of glass, metal, etc. in order to make words or a picture
