    That song is super catchy! I think I’m hooked. The visuals are super appealing too 😊 Thanks for sharing this with us!!

    I think if I were in that position, I would let my brother make a decision and support him wherever I can with his decision. If he’s happy, then he’s happy. Even if I have feelings about the woman, I would communicate this to him of course but if he is in love then I will back off and let him live his decision. I’ll be here, either way, to support and love him ❤️

    Thank you for your congratulations! I can’t wait to get out into the real world now outside of academia. Time to make my mark I guess ✨

      Glad you liked the songs. I’ve written about MADKID for the past few entries now. “Summer Time” and “Forever Young” will be released on CD (yes, CDs LOL) in Japan and on iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify next July, so I’m excited and looking forward for the new singles to come out! (plus they’re such nice guys too! 😊) Regarding the “Forever Young” song, I was kind of surprised after hearing the majority of the lyrics. Japan’s school system is from April to March (March is when the graduations from all academic levels occur), and yet the lyrics to “Forever Young” resonates so much with the fresh graduates (especially high school and college/university). When they do come online again livestream, I’ll let them know that much of the world will have graduation ceremonies in June and that their B-side was perfect as a “graduation” song of sorts. 😅

      Last night was my father’s birthday party. I was actually getting worried if my brother and my parents suddenly become strained from each other after what happened, but I was happy to see him here at the party, seems everything’s back to normal. We couldn’t exactly tell the guests (relatives) about what happened. And of course, the woman wasn’t invited. I didn’t bring anything up for the sake of our dad and the party, you know? Still, glad to see his presence and probably he and the parents just needed to take a break from that day. 😊

      Take your time when you begin your journey in to the “real world.” Take your time to explore. You may find something new and interesting and incorporate it with what you’ve learned and experienced in a way. Either way, you’ll eventually make your mark. 😊

      Shin, the black-haired cutie in MADKID, had the CG tattoo on the “Summer Time” music video the words “The future starts today, not tomorrow.” Those were his own words (in English), and mentioned them in one of his livestreams, explaining to Japanese fans (mostly high school students and college/uni students) what it means. I think those words are very fitting for all the grads today. 😅

    I love summer! It’s not too cold and a perfect weather to wear pretty dresses. What’s the temperature like for Bay Area in this summer? My previous experience is around 14 degree celsius. Is it getting hotter than that?

      Since U.S. goes by Fahrenheit and not Celsius, I’ll give you the conversion. Today (8:12 p.m.) is about 85 F (29.4 C), so yes, it’s been very hot here. 😅

        Omg. It’s close to 30 degree celsius!? It definitely feels like Singapore.

    Awesome songs ^^

    About the story, others can offer advice, but in the end he’s a grown up and has to make his own choices. I think that letting him know you’re there for him might be best. I’m sure he’d be tired of the arguments and could use some support or someone who will listen without judging.

      The singles for those two songs will be out on July 4th (Japan time obviously LOL). Eventually, they’ll be available on iTunes and Spotify but I preordered the CD lol.

      After about a week, things are good again between my brother and my parents. I didn’t want anything that would get in the way of our family closeness and that’s what I was worried about. Apparently, still, he hasn’t directly told me and my sisters about what’s going on, but I guess in a way, he probably figured that we were already informed and not say anything about it. He wasn’t secretive when we were younger, but I guess when you’re an adult, things change I guess. 😅

      Good to see you again Mika. Hope you’re doing well. 😊

    It would be an incredibly hard situation with the brother. If it was me, I think I would want to allow him to make his own decisions and if he wanted to get married it was a choice he made and shouldn’t be told he can or can’t. Obviously, there is always more to the story and I hope that things will work out in the future and that there can be a reconnection of the sibling bond.

      Hi Kassy, thanks for stopping by!

      I know this is a very old entry (first week of June), but everything went fine with us and him after a few days. He did come to our dad’s birthday party, however, even though my sisters and I are already aware of the situation, he would not tell us himself. I guess with that, we’ll just move forward as is.

      And it’s the end of June already. I need to blog LOL.

    I’m sorry about your ‘story’. I would maybe try to talk to him. Like someone else said just to show you’re there for him if he needs you.

    I hope everything turns out okay!
