It is at the end of September, and the highest temperature in Kofu finally went down ot less than 30 degree C today. It was comfortable even during the day time. The deadline of the revision of the project report waits for me on September 27. I will work on it tonight.
It is always busy after trips. At the institute, I found out that there is some modification needed in the instrument we are developing under the governmental project. So I decided to go to Shimadzu in Kyoto for two days with a student of mine. I need to finish an abstract for a presentation in November, so I will stay up late tonight to finish it.
I woke up at 5 AM and went to my office to prepare the slides of my presentation today for a project meeting scheduled this afternoon in Tokyo with most of the collaborating researchers of several schools and companies. I am the leader, so I have to talk nicely. I finished the slides at 7:30 AM, and made 30 prints. I went back to my apartment, took a shower, shaved myself, and put skin cream and cologne, which is unusual (shaving, especially), to fire up myself. Katya left home for her teaching job first, and I left next for the station. Maya-san kept the apartment. I took a train leaving … Continue reading
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 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.
Katya picked up a bucket of wild mulberries with a friend of hers. Katya and I had them together. Silkworms eat mulberry leaves. When I was in elementary school, for my scientific project, I once kept them until they made cocoons. I had to collect mulberry leaves every two days. I picked up mulberries, too. Silkworms were very white. It was fun to see them grow. I sold the cocoons to a silk factory in my hometown. The factory has long been gone.
At 1:30 PM, two bureaucrats came to our institute to check whether I have been using my money properly for the project. The office workers took care of them. The visitors said I am doing OK, except for some minor issues. We all were relieved. It is rainy this evening. The temperature got lower. All cherry blossoms must be falling off now.
Although I came back from China, my trip was not over. I woke up at 2 AM and rode my bike to my office; today there would be the first general meeting of my project with all the researchers involved in from three universities and three companies. I started preparing my talks with my desktop, which ended at 6 AM. I came back home, saying hello and good by to Katya and Maya-san. I took my bike to the station. I left Kofu at 8 AM for Kyoto. The meeting started at 1 PM at Shimadzu Co. and ended at 4:30 PM. All results presented were good and satisfactory to … 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.
