I spent today with my family. We ate out and went shopping. It had been a while. I want to spend more days in this way.

After 5 days stay at Kobe, I have come back home for the holidays. It's very comfortable!! I'll spend 8 or 9 days here. I'm looking forward specially to celebrating Coming-of-Age events with my old friends.

最近、古本屋をよく見て回るけど、絶対にないのがコンピュータ関連本。あれだけいろんな出版社から出てるのに古本屋にはほとんどないんだよね。やっぱ古本屋に出回っちゃったら新刊書店の方のは売れないんだろうな。結局のところ、ある程度身に着けちゃったら読まないからね。ということは、あの大量のコンピュータ関連書は古本屋に持ってても即廃棄になってんのか?!そりゃいまさらOffice97とかの本は誰も買わないけど、もったいないなー。いっそのこと新刊本の値段をもっと安くして欲しい。800円くらいに。無理?

TeX

I wanted to write report assignment by LaTeX but I forget returning its reference to the library. Though I got to know TeX at university, I like it very much. It can output writings with beautiful appearance. I want to learn it more.

Shaolin Soccer

I watched the movie of "Shaolin Soccer." How stupid they are!! I laughed and laughed!! I like to watch comical or heartwarming movies in these season.

Kanda

| トラックバック(0)
I went to Kanda which is famous for so many secondhand bookstores. According to the web pages, it is said that there are about 160 stores. Exactly I found many secondhand bookstores. Each bookstore has its specific area and I had to search the streets for the names of the stores I found in the Internet. Frankly speaking it was for scholars not for ordinary people. It may be necessary that you have target books. At this point I couldn't enjoy so much, but I hope to see the streets as treasure some day.

日記にも書いた西誠君のスピーチやけど、なかなかよかったなぁ。15才であんな大人な考え方を持ってるなんてえらい!とゆーてもこれを読んでる人には分からんよね。ネットを探してみたけど、記事が11月13日のものやったらしく詳細は見つかりませんでしたm(__)m興味のある人は図書館とかの古い新聞でも探してみてください。

Makoto Nishi

| トラックバック(0)

A native English teacher at my university is holding a meeting on every Friday to give us a chance to speak in English. About seven or eight students gather and talk about anything in English together.

As is unusual, today's topic was give by her in advance. It was an article about Makoto Nishi, who won the top award in the nationwide Young people talk contest( 少年の主張 ). The article said he was brought to the dormitories of Taiyo-ryo, the children's care facility, before his third birthday. He have spent thirteen years there, never seeing his parents. His whole speech was on the article. It was very touching. He has strongly grown up. I thought this was perfect process between the dormitories and him. I was really moved by his strong way to live.

On the other hand I thought of the children----the children in developing countries----who lost their parents by something ununderstandable such as wars. Makoto Nishi could feel how warm people are and find the reasons about his parents for himself. But How do such children learn people's warmth and accept the fact.

It was a wonderful chance to hear this kind of boy whose situations are sometimes broadcasted with something intentional and from somebody's eye, while I thought of the children's situations usually hidden in public.

Return

| トラックバック(0)
The assingment about C was returned. The assessment of mine was Format:8, Program:7 and Consideration:10 on a zero-to-ten scale. The lecturers said because one of the purposes of this assingment is for us to learn how to write a scientific report, they would give us another chance to turn in the report again. They were kind enough to correct our reports. I appreciate it!! The next deadline is 3 p.m. on January 15. I like to make my report better.

珍しく物理学実験のレポートが提出日の日付に変わる前に終わった~(T_T)でも明日はノート提出もあるけんノート整理もせなぁ・・・はぁ。とゆーか留学の推薦状を教授に書いてもらうのに、「原文(英語)持ってきて」と言われているのを、いまだに果たしてねーよ。これからそれもがんばって作らねば。寝れるかな?6時過ぎてから寝ると確実に起きれなくなるので、勝負は5時までに片付けれるかどうかです!!幸あれ!!!

Passing tomorrow is no more than ending of this second semester. There're no special classes on coming Friday and Thuesday. It's winter vacation since next Wednesday!!

Soccer

It was blowing so wild. When we played soccer in the last PE class, the ball didn't go straight at all. I hope to stay in Kotatsu on such a day.

Recovery

| トラックバック(0)
I have my PC recovered. It seemed to have had a problem within OS, because my scanner did not work even though I placed some calls to customer service. The recovery enabled me to use my scanner properly, but my PC has gone to its initial condition. How botherting to make it most confortable for me again!!

とりあえず、ホームページの日本語版が完成!!コンテンツなんかも充実させていきたいなぁ。とりあえず先日のレポートをWorksにあげてみた。提出日の次の日がTOEFLだったというのに、「なんでこんなに頑張ってるの?」とか思いつつ作業をすすめた(^^;まぁ何はともあれちゃんと提出できたのだからよしとしよう。

Lack of Luck

| トラックバック(0)

Unfortunately the air conditioner was out of order when I was taking TOEFL. The test room was really heated. Though it was repaired in last one hour, my concentration was really scattered. The result seems as same as last one. Anyway it was not last chance to study in the United States. I was just unlucky. I hope not to lose luck next time.

By the way my friend emailed me that the class of English: Expression1, which the only class we IS students have on Friday, was call off. They were also unlucky.

Thesaurus

| トラックバック(0)
I finally bought 『類語大辞典』(Japanese Thesaurus). I've wanted it since I got to know in this September that this thesaurus was going to be published in this November. Every time I read it at bookstores I think this is great. It seems to be very helpful from now.

Staying Home

I cut school today. I was willing to devote whole day to study for TOEFL after finishing the assingnment. But it took more time than I expected. I wanted to start studying before noon. Anyway I spend today in worthy way.

C

| トラックバック(0)

I stayed at university for extra hours to complete the assignment. We have to hand in the report about the program written in C to show the prime numbers less than 1,000,000 by 3 p.m. on this Thursday. Writing the programs itself is easy, but it is necessary to report their algorithms and to consider the results and comparison.

I had already written three programs. I arraged them to show how many prime numvers there are between 2 and 999983 and to carry faster. Also I printed the sourses and a part of the results in the specified form.

Though I haven't completed this assignment, it is a kind of my amusement to write a report by LaTeX. Watching the equations in the beautiful form pleases me. I want to study TeX more!!

Snowing

It snowed!! I've never seen such an amout of snow. In my hometown, it sometimes snows in winter, but it melts soon rarely accumulates. Though it is cool I want to experience more snowing days.

Relaxing

| トラックバック(0)
I bought "...baby one more time" by Britney Spears and the latest volume of 『ゴルゴ13』 ( "The Golgo Thirteen" ) , a Japanses comic. It is most comfortable time when I reading a coming on a bed listening to music. I wish I could buy CDs more frequently.

SAT2: Subject Tests

| トラックバック(0)

I took the tests: WRITING, MATHEMATIC 2C and PHYSICS of SAT2. For me, who learned mathematics and physics in Japanese high school, the problems were easy. WRITING test also wasn't so difficult, because it didn't have listening test nor request large vocabulary. But time schedule was hard!! Each test has an hour to take, but intervals were 5 minutes and 1 minutes. I can't believe it. I want this point to be approved.

"Spoken American English"

| トラックバック(0)
My friend introduced a book on English learning to me, called 『アメリカ口語教本』 ( "Spoken American English" ) by William L. Clark. It sounded interesting. I want to read it using the lending service of a library. The coming winter vacation seems interesting, full of many interesting books to read including the book I wrote yesterday.

"IT Corpus Juris"

| トラックバック(0)

I bought the book, 『IT法大全―ビジネス・ローのIT対応と最先端実務』 ( "IT Corpus Juris" ) by 西村総合法律事務所ネッ トメディアプラクティスチーム. I find this book when I was writing the principles of linking other web pages on my web site. This book is very expensive, so I have been hesitating whether to buy or not. After all I order it at the co-op bookstore at my university.

Though I don't read it so much---- I will read it during winter vacation---- this book is worth of its cost. Not only one lawyer but many lawyer wrote each chapter so that the pages come up to more than 600. As a reference book, this is best for IT Laws.

Chicken Liver

| トラックバック(0)
I cooked meat sauce spaghetti for dinner. I put finely-chopped chicken liver in it, which is introduced on TV the other day as a tip to have meat sauce more of body. I was very good, but the problem is to cook somehow the rest of chicken liver.

Project X

| トラックバック(0)

I watched "The Project X" a TV program by NHK. It is showing success stories about Japanese company, having big support among elder Japanese people.

Today's company was Seven Eleven Japan. It was interesting. Setting each company aside, this program make me more willing. I like to recommend you to watch it occasionally if you have interest in it.

Class on Law

| トラックバック(0)

I attended the class on Law for the first time in about a month. As usual the professor was repeating what is written on the text book. He seeingly makes his class special by passing out the copies of newspapar which is related to the class. The idea itself is very nice, but I doubt his explanation is enough for the level at university.

By the way I perfectly forgot the homework I had to hand in today. I really appreciate my friend telling me that.

Ochanomizu Discussion 2002

| トラックバック(0)

I took part in a discussion at Ochanomizu University held by Ochanomizu E.S.S. The topic was fortune. Because the definition of fortune depends on each other, the discussion sometimes didn't go well. But I enjoy it very much!! It was pretty good. I could felt their consideration not lightened.

And specially for me it was first discussion in this half year. I think I probably joined one after summer vacation, but I don't remember it clearly. Anyway today's discussion, including reception party, was delightful. I was satisfied to have and make use of a chance to speak English. I'll do my best on SAT2: Subject Tests which is to be held on next Saturday.
