After school, I felt a strong shake. At the time I was in a train. I was heading to a department store with my friend to see a show of porcelain painting. The train that we rode suddenly stopped. We heard the announce, " Do not go out from the train. Inside is safer than outside. Stay here! " many times. While we were feeling the shake, we could not stand by ourselves. I was so scared. When I looked at my friend, she seemed not to be scared, and she said, " Do not worry. It is not so strong. It will stop in a few minute. If you will not be able to get home, you can stay at my house. " After the shake stopped, the train did not move for thirty minutes. While shaking, nobody seemed to be panicked and scream. All of them were quite calm and understood the situation. I was inspired by people in Tokyo's attitude. My friend said that people in Tokyo have used to aftershocks. I was surprised and embarrassed because in my mind I was panicked even if I never screamed.
After I separated my friend, I also felt another afterschock in Tokyo while I was waiting for my bus. At the time many people seemed to be natural.
When I got home, I talked about my experiences to my husband and daughter. Both of them worried me, and my daughter said that I should not go to Tokyo for a while. I was very scared to go to Tokyo right now. I received an e-mail from my friend, and according to her last night they got a strong shake again. I also received e-mails from my Texan friend and my Jewish friend whom I said to go to Tokyo in our conversations. They also worried about me.

In addition, I have a good friend who can paint at school. So, I always look forward to hanging out with her. We alwa
