I arrived at my office at 1 AM, and I started working on the manuscript. First, I was trying to combine the manuscript and the figures in one document, and …. boy, why on earth does it happen? When I pasted a figure, for example, WORD started to create thousands of vacant pages until I undid the procedure. After I checked the manuscript, the content was changed, so unbelievable! I tried again and again to obtain broken manuscript each time. I scanned viruses to find nothing. Maybe the program or the computer is broken. I went back home, took a rest, and in the afternoon, I started retrying. I changed … Continue reading
I woke up at 1:30 AM and went to my office. Then I started working on the report due tomorrow. I came back home at 7 AM and took Maya-san for a walk. Then I went back to my office. I started working again. I had lunch I brought from home, Then I started working again. I finished the document at 3 PM. I called to a delivery company to pass the document to be delivered to Tokyo. After coming back home, Katya put another live rock into the fish tank. The atmosphere is getting ready for welcoming a crab or somthing.
Today is the day for sending preliminary results obtained in my scientific project, which started in October last year. I was working on it until 9:30 PM, then I sent it by e-mail. The document will be checked by the consultant of the project, after which I will revise and resubmit it by September 27. The interview is scheduled to be held at the end of November in front of 20 judges. Then, it will be decided whether the project continues. It is not easy. I will go to bed early; I need to wake up early to prepare the presentation tomorrow in Tokyo.
I left home at 7:30 Am, and started preparing for the document. A Shimadzu researcher came to help us with establishing the instrument in the lab. I came back home at 10 PM. I will work tomorrow for the document and the presentation slides.
I am supposed to finish a document of my project on the 30th. The meeting of it waits for me on the 31st in Tokyo. Therefore, after the break in Nagano last weekend, I restarted working at the desk in front of my computer. It was a hot day. I sweat when I came back home for lunch by bike. Then I started working.
The summer vacation of our institute started today, Saturday, August 11. It ends on Sunday, August 20. Since Katya is not with me, I went to my office for some works. I am leaving for Seoul on August 15, so I need to work for that, too. I still saw some teachers and students working at the institute. I checked e-mails and worked with documents. In the evening, I watched a ladies’ volleyball gave Japan vs. Korea. Japan won and got a bronze. Japan has not got many golds but many medals, so it has been enjoyable watching the Olympic games.
I have two classes to teach on Tuesday. The first lecture starting from 9 AM is for graduate students, fifty in number. There are a few students from Asian countries, like China, Malaysia, and Vietnam. One student is from Nepal, who entered the university this April and does not understand Japanese at all. Therefore, this year, I am teaching the class in Japanese and English. I prepared documents both in Japanese and English. I normally write on a board in English, adding some Japanese technical terms. I speak 80% in Japanese and 20% in English. Quizzes in English. I did not know whether this plan would work, but so far … Continue reading
I left my apartment at 4 AM for my office in the institute. I checked my e-mails, finished working with some documents, and went to Kofu station by bike for two meetings scheduled to be held in Tokyo. Since Marunouchi line in Tokyo was not running till 9 AM, because of an electricity break down, I arrived at the first place in Shinjuku 20 minutes late. There, I carried out some experiments using the Russian instrument I am interested in. I explained the information I needed to Russian and Japanese operators of the instrument. Then they started the experiments. I was there with them and left the building at 2 AM. … Continue reading
E-mails come during the weekend, or people send e-mails that they did not send during the weekend when Monday comes. So Monday morning is not a very pleasant time to open up the mail box. I received abstracts for the meeting in China, and I had to arrange them in order. For my research project, the office asked me to prepare another documents. I need to prepare documents for the graduating students. And so on. I did not come back home for lunch and kept working. I finished lots of the works and happily went left the office.
In the morning, I had a meeting starting at 9 AM. About 20 students and teachers discussed about the researches students perform. From 10:30 AM, I started working on the payments of my project, adding those from 5 institutes. I had no time and did not go home for lunch. I bought a lunch box at seven-eleven. From 2 PM, professors and researchers from an automobile company had a meeting. At 3 PM, I finished two documents for the students’ graduation. At 5 PM, students and I had a meeting for my project. From 6 to 7 PM, I taught students English. I left the office at 8 PM. I … Continue reading
