Good evening. This is Ikeda.
The World Cup is amazing.
I never thought we would beat Spain and take first place.
I saw the title of an article that seemed to be causing controversy in the overseas media over whether or not they got off the line for the second goal, but for now we won, so that's a good thing.
Having said that, I only watched the last 10 minutes.
I didn't even set the alarm because I was thinking I'd be lucky if I woke up.
I happened to wake up once around 6am, so I watched it on ABEMA without getting out of bed.
Even so, it was featured on TV all morning, so it feels like I've just seen it.
It looks like the first round of the tournament will be against Croatia, but I wonder if Jaikili will continue to have the best results, or will Jaikili be able to finish this.
I was wondering if I should watch the next one, wanting to sleep, and wondering if the highlights would be enough.
While the world was excited about the World Cup, we entered December.
It feels like we have entered full-fledged winter in terms of temperature.
Even so, when I think that this year will be over in just one month, I am amazed at how quickly time passes.
Please note that we will have irregular business hours this month, including the year-end and New Year holidays and the Boro Market.
The last business day of this year will be Thursday the 29th, but we will be open instead of a regular holiday.
Regarding holidays, please see below.

This year is coming to an end, but I'm thinking of trying something new, so I'm thinking of trying out advertising, which I've been stubbornly refusing to do or want to do.
This is because Instagram is so saturated that even if I were to use it as someone who doesn't have much of a sense of photography, I wouldn't be able to increase my followers.
I didn't start it because I wanted to be famous, but I decided to take a serious stance because it wouldn't be viable as a business without a minimum level of recognition.
However, since I don't have a huge advertising budget, I would like to experiment with a small amount.
If I try it for a few days and it doesn't have the desired effect, I think I'll quit right away.
At my previous job, I was managing social media advertising, but the budget was so high that I had no idea what the results would be.
I just pray for good results.
There was no particular point in writing about advertising, but since I had already declared that I would not do it, I thought I would declare that I would do it, so I wrote it down.
A declaration that benefits no one.
There were a few things I wanted to write about, such as the World Cup, the start of December, irregular business hours including the year-end and New Year holidays, and new experiments, so I have posted them here without images.
I'm wondering if anyone has read this far.
So, see you then.
