Students' summer vacation
-- From a Reader --

In Tokyo, I met a high school student in the
elevator recently and said
"You must be looking forward to the summer
vacation".
She said "Not really because I have so many
tests before!
I tried to encourage her and told her that tests
were only "temporary hurdles" you just try your
best, but she seems to have a lot of "outside"
anxiety--more from society or family pressure.
I don't think a few tests really determines your
future.
There are universities that accept anyone nowadays
in Japan no matter what high school you go to....
Getting into the right school is not going to
determine your future.
Getting "life skills" to survive and enjoy life is more
important to determine your happiness and future.
