よく寝たが寝足りない、考え事も増えたし:

I miss some things from Canada now, but there is one thing I miss in particular.
It’s not very Canada specific but more me specific.
I miss my system.
An Asus tower running Arch Linux using i3wm and the command line as the file browser.
I usually miss it when my work computer is being exceptionally slow or when I have to type out long documents on my phone (since I don’t have a laptop).
Yes, it’s the nerd’s homesickness.
But I might seriously need a proper x86 computer now that I have to apply for jobs for my next work term.

今朝メールを見たら今度のインターン期間(二千十四年夏)の仕事がすでに出始めているとの報告が入っていました。
いい仕事を見つけるためには早め早めに探し始めたほうがいいですね?
ということで履歴書の更新、色々な書類のかき集め、推薦状の願いなど色々することが出てきました。
まだ仕事しているのに推薦状をくださいと言うのもなにか気が引けますが(特に日本式企業では)聞くしか無いですね。
推薦状があったほうが色々といいと思いますし。

While playing the violin yesterday I found that the sounds would give out on a particular section of the bow.
I had read before that there was something you were supposed to put on the bow to care for it but I had assumed that the people at the music hall would do that for us.
Additionally, I didn’t notice the little compartment inside the violin case that held the resin.
It was harder than I thought it would be, being almost like a waxy rock.
Bit mostly like a rock.
After sliding the bow on the resin a few times the sound improved by a lot.
I guess I was playing hard mode the whole time? (And probably damaging the bow while I was at it…)
There was white powder left on the strings afterwards, so I’m guessing I applied too much…
Oh well, I’ll learn.
