today(pronounced too-da-ee)

Ichiro. He's one, fine baseball player. 259 hits and counting, with 10 more chances. Wow.

I'm about to be killed mentally from all the stuff I have to do by Mon., but I was
actually close to being killed physically today in the school library. We had a necessity to use a power outlet during the editing process. So, I plugged in the power cable into the socket, as anyone would do whey they are in a need to use an equipment that uses electricity to work. The moment I plugged in the cord, sparks spurted out of the outlet, with some fume rising up as a result of it. I jumped back from the exclaimation. Luckily, I didn't electricute from the shortage. However, the wire I pluged in actually BURNT and MELTED from this incident, making it useless. Lucky me, sorry wire.

The time shown on this ferris wheel is probably close to the time I went to sleep last night. This may sound unbelievable, but I slept 10 hours straight, on a weekday! Yes, on a WEEKDAY. From 19:40 to 5:30. If I had done the math correctly, that's a 10 hour long sleep. Wow. I'm impressed myself.

Nothing is going on schedule recently. I used to get rid of all of my assignments, on the day they were assigned during the 1st trimester, but now I'm lacking the motivation necessary to do so. School sucks, and I can't seem to find the reasoning to go, and to take those boriing, time consuming, non-motivating, and wasteful classes, besides English, French, and Jiyu-Kenkyu. This fact is giving me bad effects, by not making me begin working on assignments, including English, before I start screaming on the nights before their due dates.

Monday's the due date for 4 assignments, and only one of the four homeworks given, is finished. Even if I put the fact that one of these assignments was assigned today into my calculation, this situation is bad. Really bad. Better get working, although I have absolutely no intention of doing so...

good night

The MUN speech went well, but not as good as I had expected it to be. I looked at the paper way too often, and I misread couple of words. Oh well. I'm glad that's done. I am tired mentally today. Good night. Bonne nuit. Oyasuminasai.

Typhoons. Why are they so misbehaving? They always come near the Kanto region during night, make the Meteorlogical Agency give out warnings after we arrive at school, and bring along all that moisture and humidity for souvenir. As you can see from the predicted route above, it is most unlikely that school is going to close tomorrow. Bummer.

However, as wind and rain continue becoming stronger as time advances, worst scenario is blinking with a reddish color inside my mind continuously. The train line I usually take to school, Yokosuka Line is really delicate against natural threats. Especially, the Ofuna-Kurihama section always closes in occasions like this. So, I may just be late for school, miss out the classes, need to fill out those crappy forms, have to use my physical and mental strength to reach SCHOOL, blah...blah...etc. If Yokosuka Line stops tomorrow morning, I swear I'm not going to make an attempt to reach school. I SWEAR. Wish me luck.

it's sooooo busy

This week's hell! So many assignments, so many things to do, so hectic! Hmm...I remember being bored to the core last week and the week before with all that spare time...I wonder what is causing this gap in a week interval. Ah, yes...assignments. I understand that the teachers love us, and they just want to raise us up as much as possible before graduation, and yes, assigning us homework is indeed an effective way to reach that objective. However, I assume timing is a factor that is as important as these assignments.

Why are we so free on some weeks, while we are madly hectic on others? Why can't the amount of the assignments be flattened out by speading them out nice and smooth? This consideration will definately allow students
(at least for me) to use more time on each of the assignments, creating better, satisfactory works, instead of ones that were rushed through at 2AM on the day of the deadline. I'm not trying to make the teachers reduce the amount. It's all a matter of timing.

appointed minister

Koizumi Cabinet was reshuffled today, as everyone probably heard already on the news, or elsewhere. Some new posts were set upon this reshuffle, and a lot of new faces joined the cabinet along with the familiar ones. After I came home today, someone mailed me, congratuating "me" entering the cabinet. At the first sight, I was like "What on Earth are you talking about?". However, after I checked the cabinet members' listing, I was able to understand the meaning of that mail easily.

There's this guy whose name is exactly the same, except for the Kanji in a post called the "Minister of State for Finalcial Services". In the Japanese listing, the name is not as noticable, but in the English listing posted on the Prime Minister's Office website, it looks as though I'm the new minister.
Ha, funny isn't it?

business trip

I made a "business trip" today to Chigasaki, in order to setup someone's wireless LAN. Things went well, and I was able to construct the LAN itself in about 30 min. After the LAN setup was finished, I installed the mouse, transferred the files, and so on, to get it on track.

My grandma was making a visit today after I came home, and we had a nice dinner with things my grandma and mom bought from Kinokuniya. I enjoyed eating various cheeses and Italian sausages they brought home, and the dinner was really fulfilling.

6 days of continuous school beginning tomorrow...sigh, sigh, sigh.
