Headlines for Saturday:



1. Catching up with my del.icio.us inbox: 16:40

Thanks to Gabriel Mansour for reminding me about my del.icio.us social bookmarking inbox! This is the first time I've checked it, and I'm delighted to see so many interesting links from eclair, lbuenaventura, iandexter, dydimustk, coldacid, neolex410, javishare, and of course gabrielm3.

Random Japanese sentence: このようにして、おじいさんは、あたりをみまわすたびに、きれいなねこがみつかっておいていくことができなくなりました。そして知らない間に、そこにいるねこをみんな拾い上げてつれていくことになってしまいました。 So it happened that every time the very old man looked up, he saw another cat which was so pretty he could not bear to leave it, and before he knew it, he had chosen them all.

2. More decisions: 16:51

My recent bicycle accident enforced a somewhat slower pace of life. I found myself restless. I want to think! I want to write! I want to work!

I want to burn as brightly as I can. Of course, I don't want to burn out. The main risk is that every so often, I get confused about what I'm working towards. If I write and if I talk about my dreams, though, my blog and other people can remind me what it's all about.

I may reconsider a recent decision. At this point in my life, life shouldn't just be about enjoying myself, but about driving myself further (while making sure I don't burn out along the way)... Maybe there's still a way to balance everything.

Random Japanese sentence: 猫は椅子の上で寝ている。 The cat is sleeping on the chair.
