Revised the checklist

Today I revised the checklist of things which I needed to do the day before an interview and needed to take with me to an interview, to reflect the recent purchases of photography tools and prevent recurrence of recent mistakes.

Shoot photographs of Tokyo Station

Today on my way home from the interview job in Taito Ward, Tokyo, I got off the train at Tokyo Station and took photographs of its building of Marunouchi frontage which had been restored to its original state of about 100 years ago. Unfortunately I could find no integrity in its design, the lit up brick-built building was beautiful.

Restored station building

Today I tuned on TV, which I seldom did, to watch news about the eruption of the volcano, and by chance saw a program about the restored building of Tokyo station. I was impressed by the magnificence of arts and crafts dedicated to the station building. Yesterday I am going to Tokyo on business. I want to take the opportunity to visit Tokyo station.

Anti-Dazais

I guess many of those who express distaste for Dazai Osamu are afraid of facing up to their weakness or ugliness which he exposed in his novels.

Stimulation of economy?

Although I think it is the role of the government to help the poor people, I dislike the idea that it is the role of the government to stop recession and create and keep prosperity.

Many regrets

Although the interview itself which I had yesterday was successful, there were many points which I regretted about photographs of the interview. The exposure of flashlights was a little too much. After shooting it took hours to adjust the white balance. The place of the gathering photography of the interviewee was unsuitable not only as of the background but also as of the lighting. And so on.

We don't know about our customers

Today I visited the head office of a Japanese major drug manufacturer in Tokyo to have an interview with their IT experts about an IT tool which they introduced this year. I thought I had a successful interview. The reason they had chosen the IT tool was different a little from that which I had heard in advance from the IT company which had introduced it. Although it is not unusual that the seller does not exactly know why the buyer bought the product of the seller, I had expected that in today's case the reason which I had heard from the IT company was right, because they were IT expert and they had built the IT system of the drug manufacturer. Today I thought again that we didn't fully know even about the people whom we provided the service every day.

Spent almost a whole day to prepare

I am going to interview with IT managers of a major pharmaceutical manufacturer about an IT tool which the company introduced recently. The interview will be very technical. Today I spent almost a whole day to prepare for the interview.

Skin colors depicted by Canon and Nikon cameras

About a year ago, the skin colors which were depicted by Canon cameras seemed more agreeable than those which were depicted by Nikon cameras to me. But recently it seems oppositely for some unknown reason.

Unconscious stiffening of the elbows and the backbone

Yesterday practicing martial arts I found that the unconscious stiffening of my elbows was founded on the unconscious stiffening around my backbone and vice versa.

Left my wallet

Today I left my wallet which had about 5 thousand yen in it in the toilet of a coffee shop. About an hour later I noticed that and went back to the coffee shop to ask whether someone had take a wallet to them. They said yes and I got my wallet back with nothing filched. I was not surprised at all because I believed someone had done so 99%.

Editing the video

Today from morning till night I edited the video of the lecture which I held last Sunday. Probably It will take three or four more days to finish editing.

2014年9月18日木曜日

Voice distorted

The lecturer's voice which I recorded by the built-in microphone of my IC recorder at the lecture I held last Sunday was distorted more than a little. The range of volume of lecturers' voice was far wider than that of interviewees. I will use an outer microphone when I hold a lecture next time.

Went to Tokyo Freight Terminal

Last night I went to Tokyo Freight Terminal to see freight trains. I never got weary of looking at freight train switching.

Deeper impression

Today I held an event where the Japanese translator of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead gave a lecture on the novel. The great phrases of  the great novel read aloud by its translator gave me  much greater and deeper impression than when read  silently to myself.

Rented a professional camcorder

For tomorrow's event which I hold, today I rented a professional camcorder Panasonic AG-HMC45, a LED light FloLight LED500, and a video tripod SLIK Videogrande II. I need to make a trial of the camcorder, but I still can't because I have so many things to prepare the event.

Slow reader

I can't read rapidly, but probably the weak point is also a strong point in the sense that I can write sentences which are easy to read for those who can't read rapidly.

Disagreements

It is not only interesting but also frightening that people who seem to me much more intelligent than me often disagree about subjects the right answer of which should be one and regard each other as idiots.

Got the outlook

At last I got the outlook for completing the article which had grappled with for about a week.

Large companies

Today I had a meeting with a couple of employees of one of the largest IT companies in Japan to make arrangements of an interview which I was going to have late in this month with IT staffs of one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in Japan. I thought it was troublesome to work in major companies because there were so many strict rules. I was even ordered to report in advance what equipment I would bring for the interview.

Brain so tired

The articles which I am writing since the last week are so difficult that my brain was so tired today that it took more than an hour to get rid of fatigue from it.

Membership sticker

A few days ago a "membership sticker" of my neighborhood association was distributed with a circular notice. The circular notice requested us to stick the membership sticker somewhere around the entrance of our home. Basically a neighborhood association is composed of all the households of an area.  I can find no necessity of such a membership sticker.

Trains look much heavier to me than before

One of the phenomena about me which seem strange to me is that recently the body of trains look much heavier to me than before. Probably the phenomenon has something to do with the recent improvement of resolving power of my eyes.

Irritating

It is irritating that while the feelings which my words should bring to my readers have already come to my mind the words which should express the feelings have hardly come to my mind.

Imbalance

I happened to think it would be great if the imbalance of my growth itself had a meaning to my growth and I wanted to think it did.

Always failing to grasp the center of things

It is one of my fundamental tragedy that I have fallen into the habit of always failing to grasp at bodily dimension the center of things in which I am concerned.

The inner hole of the lens

In order to practice taking pictures at interviews I sometimes take photographs of myself using the self-timer function or a release-cable. Strangely enough the inner hole of the lens begun to seem like some other thing to me recently while I was staring at the center of it, and suddenly I learned from the illusion many things about my weak points at relations with people.
