Title: All Things WTAPS./245th entry「Learning by using your own hands」

The feeling of satisfaction you get after being able to do something, may be a little bit more emotional than how it was when you were a child.
Trying something for the first time, doing it, is full of surprises and newly found things even more when it is something you never even thought of doing once in your life. Fumbling but trying hard, of course making small mistakes, but somehow in the end making it. The preparation beforehand, getting the things ready that are needed is even exciting and of course there is no need to mention how the main event that is the glamorous part is; even cleaning up afterwards is fun.
What is different from childhood, is how afterwards I felt some strong emotions thinking about how "even after becoming an adult there are things you do for the first time".

Title: All Things WTAPS./244th entry「To know words」

People that know words have an astounding vocabulary, and maybe it is not just about being talkative and being able to discuss and explain certain images or scenes, but more a person that can outwardly convey properly to others their own thoughts that flow out from their senses.
Many times when I just rely on feel and try to spit out what is inside of me, maybe from nervousness or shyness, I seem to get stuck and cannot express myself. Then I end up shutting up; I am left with a forever feeling of frustration like being stuck on why I could not scoop it up, the sunk impurities at the bottom of a bottle.
When I am speaking with someone at times like this, that can express casually in easy to understand words what I could not, due to my thoughts being hazy, I feel like what was stuck, smoothly became unstuck.

Title: All Things WTAPS./243rd entry「The definition of durability」

I feel that not knowing when the timing is right to throw them away, is a feeling shared between those that have been wearing Vans for a long time.
Especially after you have become an adult, shoes are something that you do not really wear until they are trashed. You want to avoid things such as your socks getting wet from walking on wet surfaces in shoes with worn out soles.
But in the case of Vans, no matter if they get worn or torn, they do not come to an end easily.
Even if a hole appears in the sole, you just recognize it as if it just entered a new phase. Of course when damage spreads, the scenes of use get limited, but there really is no complete point of retirement.
I guess it is a form of affection when you come up with reasons like that for not being able to throw them away.

Title: All Things WTAPS./242nd entry「What is your favorite movie?」

In this month's POPEYE the designer answers to this question; I wonder why it is so fun to ask people what their favorite movies are.
Different emotions come out in me during such times like mutual feelings towards the movies that I also like, interest towards movies I have not seen, etc. But, I find it really interesting when I am told about their feelings about it, the more deeper aspects, like how the person accepted it and how they digested it.
There are also many times that my answer is different at times when asked "What is your favorite movie?" That is because when I think in broader terms, it is really not just one or two of them. While looking at the pages, I end up in deep thought of out of all of them, which is the one that I feel is special throughout all these years? That is why that question may always be a pleasure to me.

Title: All Things WTAPS./241st entry「Discovering new things by studying the past」

Nothing to do with trends or the mainstream, there is a trend within myself that sparked from a this is it! moment.
When the total balance of the silhouette coming from pants width and length along with the sizing of upper garments become something new, I also start to have a sense of feeling fresh. Maybe I have a strange obsession where I end up feeling a little lazy about myself when I do not incorporate change.
With that said though, I feel that I just returned to how I use to wear things quite a while ago; but it is a refreshing feeling to wear a style of pants I have not worn in a few years.
But it is not completely the same as back then; maybe because of the evolution of the products, along with the way I feel about things now.
