my childhood tale

This is the story I wrote when I was five years old. I rewrite them in English, since the original one is a messy four panel comic. I’m actually still wondering what was I thinking at that time and what cynical sense made me wrote the story. The thing is, even as a kid, I’m not even fond of rabbits. Really.

thinking how to think

I am currently trying to pledge a new understanding upon my way of thinking. I need a breakthrough. Selecting and cutting of essential pieces from swarming information is not as easy as what Malcolm Gladwell wrote in Blink. Slice judgement is also the matter of the mindset. It’s not that easy to maintain and upgrade such thing. 

The book I’m reading reminds me of that. I’m reading about VR (Visual Reality). In fast forward mode, it’s probably pretty obvious that I’m also trying to gain more knowledge for the base of understanding 3D movie. But it didn’t came to my epiphany that by doing so, I would also have to understand the basic principal of tanagra theatre, or even further, Alberti’s window (in this case, in Cartesian point of view). This reminds me to my third semester when I learn that trains essentially change human’s food distribution because villagers had to manage their harvest time based on the train schedule, when do the train passes their city. 

This is a little reminder, that I should always try to expand my mindset. 

one last chance

 

Just came back from a short visit to Jakarta for applying my VISA. Managed to meet a few friends though couldn’t manage to see the three persons I’d like to see the most. But around the end of July I’ll be back again. Still for VISA. I wish the application won’t took too long, my professor was surprised of the new complicated VISA application system so he offered his help if I happen to find any trouble. He’s such a nice person. We talked quite a lot at our dinner, during his visit to Jogja last month. I feel lucky that I’m always fond of my professors. I remember how much I adored Prof. Lo, during my study in Taipei. I hope my new supervisor in TU Ilmenau will be nice too (I think so though, judging from his emails.)

I keep wondering of a few things I can’t really tell. My next visit to Jakarta will be a hello goodbye. There are still some names I’d really like to meet. So many persons, so little time. I hope they could all be squished into my short schedule. I’m leaving soon to Ilmenau, excited and anxious at the same time. Wish me luck.
