5. Planner hacking day: 23:29

Categories: None -- Permalink
We didn't have any homework today, so I practiced poi and then settled down for a night of aimless hacking, going over my PlannerModeMaintenance task list and seeing if there was anything I could get rid of. I made a couple of tweaks which might improve the behavior and sent out much-delayed e-mail. I have to admit that PlannerMode is making it really difficult for me to procrastinate properly, as I know I can always do something useful...

I also sketched out my statement of purpose for my FurtherStudies. I still can't quite scope it properly. Yes, I'm into personal information management. I'm into task management in particular, extending to personal information management (task-related contacts, e-mail, appointments, notes), collaboration and mobile/wearable computing. I really, really want to take a look at how people evolve custom personal information management systems to fit their needs. Well, I still have time to slowly refine my statement of purpose...

1. Haiku: 17:01

Categories: None -- Permalink
We took up haiku in class today, just for fun. I wrote a lot. =) Then just for kicks, I translated them to English and coerced the translations into haiku form as well.
紅葉 降る もみじ ふる The autumn leaves fall
音 聞こえない おと きこえない Not a sound is heard at all
冬 が 来る ふゆ が くる Winter is coming
鳥 が 泣く とり が なく The bird is crying
桜 見ないで さくら みないで It can't see cherry blossoms
前 に 死ぬ まえ に しぬ Dying before then
日 の 黄色 ひ の きいろ Sun-yellow color
空 から 降った そら から ふった Falling from the sky above
米 入れる こめ いれる Goes into the rice
z木 たおれる き たおれる If a tree tumbles
だれか 聞かない だれか きかない And no one hears it falling
音 が する? おとがする? Does it make a sound?
富士山 は ふじさん は Fuji-mountain is
恥ずかしそう だ はずかしそう だ A bit embarassed, it seems
曇 掛ける くも かける Wearing cloud clover
冬 の 年 ふゆ の とし The years of winter
額 に 多い 線 ひたい おおい せん With many lines on forehead
心 夏 こころ なつ In the heart, spring
雀 泣く すずめ なく The bird is crying
子供 跳ばれる こども とばれる Children can now fly away
恋しい な こいしい な It misses them so
