Yesterday, after the seminar, I received a response from the governmental office telling me that they are not allowed to download files from free storage sites. It is reasonable, so I made the file separated into three and sent them by e-mail first. An officer said the report was fine, so I print it out, signed on it, and sent it by mail. A researcher came from Shimadzu. We worked on our instrument under development.
Today is Monday. I had to check e-mails to answer to the requests. Besides, three of my students sent me abstracts for a conference in San Francisco scheduled at the end of October. I discussed with them and they finished writing. The submission deadline is Friday. I came back home and watched Columbo on TV. Columbo is always nice to watch. I do not like CSI in which too many murders happen to show dead bodies.
I received an e-mail from a person in the governmental office in charge of my project, telling me that they had received my answer sheet. It will be passed to the judges on the 27th. Another e-mail arrived from a friend of mine in France with a paper attached; a Chinese student of his lab did the job in our institute while he was here and wrote the paper. I will check it soon. In the afternoon, I taught a class. Another e-mails and another jobs not accomplished last week. Typical Monday.
The pill made me well asleep. Luckily, the jet lag did not suffer me very much today because the stay was short. I was, although, sleepy all day because I was tired. Three companies visited me. Then, I checked e-mails to settle down the things left. I left the office at 8 PM as usual. Katya made pizzas by herself. It was fun to have her handmade pizzas. Back to normal.
During the night, I prepared my presentation slides. I changed the story from what I had been thinking, so it took time. I finished the first version of my presentation at 10 AM. Then I went to Hawaii Convention Center to listen to my colleague, who was invited. Then I came back to my room, which was already cleaned. I kept working, upgrading the slides. I went to the meeting room in Hilton at 4 PM. It was a small room with 30 – 40 participants. My presentation started at 5 PM. I am new in this field, and I first talked about the background of my research carefully. Then, … Continue reading
I received an e-mail telling that the report had arrived at the office in Tokyo. Relieved. I sent an electric version by e-mail. I left the office at 8 PM as usual. Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament, was on TV, which is the largest ladies tennis tournament in Japan. Sharapova has already left the tournament, which is not a good news both for me and Katya.
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.
It is Monday today. There is no meeting at all; I checked e-mails, wrote syllabi for the lectures, and sent on the web the scores of the students taking my classes. I went to see a nose doctor, and had my hair cut at a barber’s. In the evening, Katya and I talked on skype. Katya said that her parents gave many souvenirs to Japan. She will be coming back to Japan tomorrow from Vladivostok.
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.
It was rainy today. I taught two classes as usual. The second class ended at 2:30 PM. I took all the materials out and quickly went out to a Chinese restaurant, Manpuku Roh, which closes at 3 PM. After the quick lunch, I had a discussion with students from 3:30 to 4:10 PM. Then, there was an administration meeting from 4:30 to 5 PM. I checked e-mails and continued my jobs. Katya picked me up at 8 PM at the institute. In the rain, we headed for a sushi restaurant, Nigiri no Tokube; there was a 19% discount coupon left unused. I tried to take pictures as usual in the restaurant, … Continue reading
