Figure things out


5. Poi fun

Categories: None -- Permalink
I think I've gotten the hang of the standing fountain. I started with the turning fountain, then realized that I could just do the backward and forward weaves on the same plane as my arms.

Also, turning my wrists out instead of in seems to help with the behind-the-back spins, although I still can't cross reliably.

4. That's odd (FurtherStudies#18): 17:33

For some reason, I can't find the envelope full of transcripts. I also don't have copies of my official test reports. I don't think they're in the safe deposit box downstairs.

No big loss, although it will make filling out the online application for MIT a bit difficult. Perhaps Mom can enclose an unsealed copy of my transcript in the grad school application package.

What could explain this mystery? Hmm. I've checked my luggage. Nothing there, not even in the pockets. I have my JITSE application papers. I have my extremely important scrapbook of letters. =) I haven't thrown any important-looking papers out.

Hmm. If I were Mom, I would've tucked the papers into the brown bubble-wrap envelopes. They're not there, though.

Perhaps I didn't bring them after all. Mom probably anticipated that I might lose the documents, and no doubt has copies in that little case in her locked drawer. Besides, I need new transcripts sent from home, anyway, so I couldn't have used the ones I (thought I) brought. =)

Yeah, that's the ticket. I'll finish the MIT online application when I get the transcripts from home.


<laugh> I'd forgotten the months for my awards. Fortunately, Google new. I love the Internet!

3. Whoops, mistake with the transcripts: 15:28

I wondered why the registrar gave me loose transcripts. Looks like we'll have to get a new set of signed, sealed transcripts for application. Mom, could you please ask someone to take care of this?

Also, have sent my TOEFL and GRE general scores to the wrong department. Can request another set. Whoops.

My bad. But really am sitting down and figuring everything out. Want to get into the Mobile Computing and Personal Information Management research group of UToronto.

2. Darn. Missed the Tokyo Game Show: 14:27

Saw the notice way too late. Shrugged it off as hey, it's a game show...

... then learned today that it's a _videogame_ exhibition, with cosplayers that would've made the people back home nosebleed.

That's life.

1. Furl, Spurl, and del.icio.us: 13:59

Between Furl, Spurl, and del.icio.us, I prefer the del.icio.us social bookmarking service the most. I love being able to easily subscribe to all people blogging to a certain category. It also seems a lot more active. Sure, full-text search would probably have been nice, but del.icio.us coupled with Google has been enough for me. The lower data requirements probably mean that del.icio.us will be around for longer. It also helps that del.icio.us works perfectly with w3m, the web browser I use within Emacs. URLs are short and easy to remember, too. I love my http://del.icio.us/inbox/sachac!
