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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
