How are you staying cool during these hot days of summer? Don't forget to drink enough water, please...
Today was the first time I've worked on a Friday, and it was nice to see some familiar faces. I returned to Japan from my vacation in the U.S., so I was excited to talk about my trip. My moms got married in Seattle and had a nice ceremony and reception, but many of our wedding guests agreed that it was a little bit too long (about two hours). How about your wedding ceremony? I learned a little bit more about Japanese weddings from our guests, and it sounds like Japanese-style weddings have around a 15-20 minute ceremony.
We also talked about some new movies that have been released. When I was on vacation, I watched a movie called "Suicide Squad" that I have decided is the worst movie I have ever seen. Before I saw it, I was excited because of the preview commercials, but it ended up being really, really bad. I think it was really bad because there were so many confusing moments, and also lots of dialogue that sounded over-dramatic. When I asked our guests about the worst movie they have ever seen, there weren't many strong opinions... but if you'd like to share, please come and talk with us at the cafe or let us know in the comments below.
As always, thanks for the great conversation!
Here are some of the words that came up in today's free talk:
anxiety: This is a feeling of tense nervousness. You can add a word before it to describe the reason for the anxiety. For example "test anxiety" is the nervous/panic feeling when taking tests.
I don't have much test anxiety, but I have a problem of reading very slow!
bassinet: This is a baby bed that is like a basket with legs. You can get a bassinet seat for babies on some airplanes.
lukewarm: This is a temperature slightly warmer than room temperature. Usually it describes the temperature of a liquid.
