Alternate Dimension (Part 21)

Strangely, I can't feel the weight of my original body stuffed inside my cloned body, like it never was there. That is good in a sense that it won't be a burden, but bad as I could completely forget about it and end up searching high and low everywhere. Obviously, I can't let it out when I feel like it: people might be watching even if I can't see them. Based on past experience, there could be guys with SLR cameras that is not a staff or student of my previous school hiding and taking pictures of students (girls especially). I know because I spotted them doing so. Because I was a guy back then, they saw me and offered to give or sell me photos they had taken earlier which range from questionable angles to professional shots. Otherwise, they would have ran away to somewhere for fear that I could report them. Well, I can understand why they were doing so in the first place as I was one of them. If they were to appear at this festival, I wouldn't mind them doing so bec

Twitter profile

Link to Twitter Profile: I have joined Twitter about 9 days ago, after a podcast site I usually listen to  keeps mentioning it and out of curiosity on what it is all about. It turns out to be somewhat similar to the status updates on Facebook. I can follow other people's updates, and others can follow mine. I did a check among my (real life) friends and it seems that only one out of the so many has an account. Compare that with Friendster, MySpace or Facebook. To update my status, I can just type in there (at the "Home" link in the screenshot), or through mobile phone via mobile web or text message to a number mentioned there, as you can see for the first 2 entries for 28 Jan. For the latter option, you first need to enter your number (including the international prefix. eg. "+81") so they will know whose account to post it to when they receive. I have set up on my Windows Live Profile (as Web Activities) and Facebook (as an application) acc

about v0058

You might have seen me putting this up last night. It's a vector trace of the image that has been lying around on the same folder as my earlier vectors for many months now. (There are currently 125 images waiting to be vectored.) I had to re-size the largest length (width) to 1180px instead of the usual 1280px as to meet the image host maximum limit of 1MB, so at 1180px, it's at 999KB (or 1,023,208 bytes). Width for other versions are unchanged. You may be wondering what are the titles on those books you see scatted around since the title are too small to be seen, here's a list below. I have rearrange them so that you can see them. "Weekly Shonen Jump" (週刊少年ジャンプ) Volume 8 of the light novel series of "To Aru Majutsu no Index" by Kazuma Kamachi (とある魔術の禁書目録⑧ 鎌地和馬) Volume 3 of the manga series of "Our Dear Tamura-kun" by Yuyuko Takemiya (わたしたちの田村くん③ 竹宮ゆゆこ) Unknown volume of the light volume series of "Our Dear Tamura-kun" by Yuyuko Takem

Losing Identity (Part 12)

The summer vacation is just around the corner. I want to visit the parents of my overseas childhood friend, but I don't want to go there alone, and my parents are still away. Students who did the recent test badly are required to take remedial lessons, which would eat up the holiday period, partly because that there would be no lessons for quite a while after the holidays due to preparations of the upcoming cultural festival. Fortunately, nobody in my class failed, which is considered quite rare. Me: Hey, everyone! Who wants to go to that country with me for the holidays? I will be paying for all the expenses! I am heading there to visit the parents of my childhood friend who lived there but passed away back in May. You guys need not follow me around when there and you would be staying in a hotel in the downtown district there. Seems that only a few people responded. Yukari: That Country ? oh, おk(^O^) I don't have any plans anyway. Nagisa & Saeko: Me too! Ky

Disorientated Feelings (Part 1)

It's some time in November and I am busy preparing for the entrance exams into High Schools as I am in my my third year of Middle School. I can pretty much see the leaves turning yellow, orange, or brown, on the trees. The weather is getting colder too, which means I had worn the Summer uniform for the last time just last month, and had switched to the Winter uniform, which is thicker, but warmer. Not sure what year it is now, but I know I turned 14 this year, and November 1 is a Sunday. There are many schools to choose from, but what the ones I'm interested in are the two schools located at the opposite ends from the train station near there, which has trains serving the station a short bus ride away from home, and the downtown area of the city. The school at the top is quite well known from all over the country due to its facilities and most of the students there do quite well or are a relative of someone famous. The other school is well known too, but not so when compared

Alternate Dimention (Part 20)

Kotomi showed me around the school to all the stalls and exhibitions. They include a ghost house, cultures from around the world, science-related activities, food like crepe, chocolate-coated banana, milkshake, and of course, ice-cream. She said that performances and bands would take place there throughout the whole day. Oh yes, this reminds me about the time we spent there last year: I purposely chose the role of promoting my class so that I could sneak off to go out with her. When we walked along the corridor, there were whispers around us. This time however, they were about what I was doing there and why I keep visiting the school more frequently lately. As we walked past her class (which seems to be decorated for either a play or movie screening), she asked me what I would be doing for the festival at my current school as she could drop by to see me. Normally, for her to say something like this would make my heart skip a beat and feel shy, but that feeling didn't happen

Inauguration of the 44th U.S. president

The left clear and smooth, but the right is more current. As at the time of typing this, I am watching the live web telecast of the incoming 44th president of the united states of America, President Barrack H. Obama. Like what I said earlier , he promise to make changes that should have been done. Well, I don't know what else to say right now, but you can find out more about what happened in the newspapers around (most of) the world and, in the (near) future, books and online articles too. Another screenshot: As this happens at noon there, right here is half a day ahead, which means that it's past midnight. That means that I should go sleep now. "Yes, we can!"
