It was annouced on Momoko's solo radio show that she would be a university soon.
Nouciel from Hello-Online translated a script that 2ch has provided of Momo talking about being a university student,
here it is:
So, everyone, April has already ended.
In this month, many things happen.
For example, I work, but since this April I've started writing in a diary.
There are lots of of people that do challenges this month.
So, Momo, hmm, starting this spring I will become a university student. I've became one!
Ah, I said it too fast, it's "I'll become" (lol)
So, I'll become an university student starting this spring, so I think there will be some people surprised about this.
Since quite sometime ago, I've thought about high school, for about 1 or 2 years.
Yeah, everyone, it's the time to think, like, which path do you want to walk in life.
Well, wether if you like or dislike studying, that's not where the answers are.
It's more like well, well, wether you *want* to study a bit more.
I think I also want to go to university to increase my circle of friends.
Well, a lot of examinations will practically allow you to start working.
So, I'd feel so lucky if I passed an examination *laugh*
It would be good *laugh*
Studying something specific sort of makes you feel like, relieved.
Since Momo likes small kids, I'd like to be able to be a kindergarten teacher, or a primary school teacher.
Although... the width of a job can be extended, yeah? (* I think she means that she could also work on more things, like, being a kindergarten/primary school teacher is not the only thing she'd want to do)
Ah, so, for sure, I want to work in something that is about getting involved with kids.
Manager, did you listen?
I want to do that
Yeah, I want to do that *lol*
So, radio listeners,
about me taking that examination, some of you might get worried
But, now more than ever, you can ask me about stuff.
Momo wants to listen.
So, when I start getting the actual lessons...
There are also fun things to do when you're an university student.
I also want to be in conversational challenges (discussions?). Momo, as well as other people, let's do our best in our life as university students.
I'm VERY happy for Momo-chan! I mean of all the members from Berryz to go to college, I'm pretty sure just about all H!P fans thoguht she would be the least likely, since she's seems so focused on her idol career, but it looks like she's proven proven a few fans wrong! :)
I'm thinking as of right now, Momo plans to be both an idol and a university student! I don't think she wants to give up either one of them even if doing both is very hard and stressing(If you've noticed NO H!P girl has ever tried to do both at the same time .... KonKon ended up leaving Morning Musume for her college education). I do think Momo will do fine with doing both though... She IS a hard worker(the hardest worker in Berryz) and I just don't think she will give up on being an idol anytime soon(after all... Didn't Momo herself say in an interview that she wants to be an idol even when she's old? XD)!
Momo is a really special idol(imo)! Idols with extreme personalities like her don't usually think ahead of their careers(At least.. I don't think they do?), but she is! VERY admirable, right guys?
And also.. Didn't Captain herself mention about college a few months ago? I don't quite remember what she said about it, but I know she mentioned it... I wonder hows it going on her end? Haven't heard anything.. o.O XD
