|6/1||[Seven people killed in a house in
Woke up at 6:00AM. Went out for running. I worked at office, and had lunch and dinner at home. I needed to be at another conference so stayed at office until dark. I was able to come home but could not go bed easy so I fell sleep around 11:00PM.
|6/2||Woke up around 6:30AM. I needed to work on company stuff from the morning so I gave up on running. It was raining also. Reported to work late because I worked on most of the stuffs at home. Spent whole day at work, some meetings, paperwork. Came home around 6:00PM and only to find that my driver's license is still on hold. I needed to send a copy of some documents. Stopped by a post office to drop off a mail. Came home, relaxed for the evening.|
|6/3||Woke up at 7:00AM, stretched my body, went to gym but closed for holiday today. I went out and run in the afternoon. Stopped by a Japanese grocery store to buy a bag of rice. I don't quite remember the last time when I bought but consuming 20lbs of rice is not that easy, though. Cooked fried rice but decided to freeze them because I will be going to Michigan from tomorrow.|
|6/4||I woke up at 6:00AM, had to pack my stuffs and head out to Michigan. Arrived there around 1:00PM. Took a coworker to a shopping mall because he needed to buy something for his kids. had lunch at Subway, and dinner at P.F. Chang's. Going to bed around 11:00PM|
|6/5||Woke up at 6:00AM. went out and ran outside before going to work. Picked up coworker and took him to work. Worked whole day to prepare for a meeting tomorrow. My coworker could not leave at the same time as me so I had to stop by at Max and Erma to buy him a hamburger. I bought myself a salad and ate at hotel. Going to bed around 11:00PM.|
|6/6||Woke up at 6:00AM. I wanted to go out and run but a bit tired from over working. Worked on assignments whole morning then headed to customer's place. It took a while but everything went okay. Headed to a Japanese restaurant with coworkers and had some drink. When I got back to the hotel and getting ready to go bed, I got a phone call from the teammate who is visiting form Japan that the president seems forgot about him and he is stuck at the office. I had to drive to pick him up in the late night. (I know people in Hell, MI must have had good time tonight, not me...)|
|6/7||Woke up at 6:00AM, felt very tired so I simply gave up going outside. Reported to work as usual. I had to stay until 3:00PM at the office before heading back to Indiana. I was driving slow so it took me longer than normal travel time but came back to Indianapolis by 8:00PM. I went out and run for a couple of miles before going to bed.|
|6/8||Woke up at 6:00AM, it's good to be at home. I tried to go out and run in the morning but was not in that feeling. The forecast was sunny but cloudy from the morning. Went to work on time, and spent whole day at office. Came back to my apartment around 6:00PM then finally went outside to run. Ate dinner and took evening easy by doing two loads of laundry.|
|6/9||[FIFA World Cup began in Germany until 7/9]
I woke up in the middle of night because my neighbor was calling at his girlfriend "d--b-ss" and "f---". I think he'd better off without a girl. I woke up at 7:00 instead of 6:00AM because of it. Worked whole day and took care of many issues and went home around 6:00PM, went out for running 4 miles. There was a kid trying to tease me by running with me but he was not in that shape, hahaha. Finally got my driver's license from the State of Indiana. Now I can rent a car. Phew...
|6/10||Woke up at 6:00AM, because I forgot to turn off the alarm clock for the weekend. Went to a gym for the second time. I got some basic forms now. Stopped by Barns & Nobles to buy some books, stopped by a bank to get ready for the trip, post office to drop a mail to my dad, and a barber to get my hair cut. Spent afternoon easy but ended up going to office to took care of mail and others.|
|6/11||[Nintendo DS Lite went on sale in the U.S.]|
|6/16||A day after coming back from China. The bad thing is that I have to go work. I spend whole day at office and worked. Came home while knowing that there is a Indy Jazz Festival going on, but I just could not move and stayed in my bed in the evening. I wish I never had to go work a day after I took a long trip.|
|6/17||Woke up at 6:00AM, I felt okay but I know I was
not in a good shape to go to a gym so I skipped the class. After taking the
morning easy, I went to Indy Jazz Fest from 2:30PM. Driving down to the
downtown was easy as usual, just parked right next to the Victory Field. I
enjoyed groups such as "Groove Society", "Jimmy Heath" and "Kathy Morris"
played. The weather was expected to be bad about one more hour when the last
performance of the day started, so I decided to go home. I stopped by Meijer
to buy some groceries, and just as I was arriving home, the lightening lit
up the sky and rain started. I called home around 11:30PM, and went to bed
[Indy Star reported that 16,000 households lost power. I saw a police cruiser zipping through a street as I was going home so it must be it.]
|6/18||Woke up around 7:00AM, hearing the sound of
rain, I guess it is going to be like this whole day. Stretched m body but
did not go out for running. Went to
Airport to have left over currency exchanged at
Travelex. This is the only place in
Indianapolis which can do this kind of work. I had $120 back. I withdrew
$400 (and $100 not exchanged) so it was not so bad after all. Had lunch
which I bought at Meijer, and took a nap for the afternoon. Woke up around
5:00PM and decided to go to the jazz
fest again. I enjoyed "Dr. John" and "Harbie Hancock". The rain started
in the middle of latter performance so decided to come home after that. When
I get home, rain started hard, realizing there is a severe thunderstorm
watch in effect. I am glad I did not stay too long.
Rain or Sunny...
|6/19||I woke up at 6:30AM. I was quite sleepy still.
unable to go out and run before the work, I just stretched. Rain and Shine
all day long, sometimes even stormy. Worked on my assignments, and stopped
by a clinic to get my skin irritation taken care of. They told me that I
have been loosing a lot of bodily oil so don't wash my hands (which is no
way!) so the doctor prescribed me a some kind of cream to prevent that from
[Indy Star reported 25,000 household lost power, worse than the last time, but better than Houston where had 6 inches of rain in 2 hours...]
|6/20||Woke up at 6:00AM. Able to run outside for 3 miles in the morning. I went to work then headed to DMV to register my car in Indiana. Everything went okay and I also took my violin to a shop because I had to wait for more than 2 hours. (It's Tuesday, a bad day...) I worked until 6:00PM and came home. I think I am going to have lunch outside tomorrow since stuffs in the refrigerator are getting low. I need to make or buy sides, not much orange juice left. Hmmm.|
|6/21||Woke up at 6:00AM. Thank god it is not raining.
I stretched my body and went for running before going out. I stopped by at a
Honda dealer to get oil changed. I will need some maintenance at next visit.
The whole process took only about one hour so I reported to work by 9:30AM.
Stayed whole day and went to a gym in the evening. This is my first time I
went there during the weekday. My body is so sore now. Ouch!
Stopped by Meijer to get some orange juice and salad (and snacks) before heading home. Going to bed around 10:30PM
|6/22||Woke up at 6:00AM, feeling pain on my back from the yesterday's exercise. I went to work and picked up two coworkers for the customer visit. I got a 2006 Mazda 6. This is my second time I am driving one. I had fun because the car can go fast on highway even with passengers. Rained hard on the way back to the office. Things were just fine because I had no trouble driving.|
|6/23||Woke up at 6:00AM, only to find out it is still raining outside. Been to my coworkers' house with other teammates after work. The house had a full of fun musical instrument. I get to try on drum set for the first time. Just chatting and having good time, I left the house after midnight and came home. Went to bed around 2:00AM...|
|6/24||Finally it's a sunny morning. Woke up at 7:00AM. I had to return the car which I rent by 9:00AM so I took shower and headed to the store. Came back and then went to the gym. I had a pretty good workout. I came home and decided to refill all the groceries I needed to buy, so I went to Sakura Mart and Meijer in the afternoon. I also stopped by at Violin Shop to get a replacement string... I had to use A/C today but became cooler by the evening. I called home in Japan and talked with my mom as usual.|
|6/25||It's Sunday. I woke up around 7:30AM. I am a bit tired from the lack of sleep. Since I did all the shopping yesterday, I just needed to go out and run in the morning. I thought it is going to be very hot again because it was sunny like yesterday, but the sky became dark in the afternoon, ended up having some rains. It stopped around 6:00PM. I was cleaning my room a bit to eat ready for the new week.|
|6/26||Woke up at 6:00AM. Went for a run in the morning but very humid from the rain. I went to work on time. I came home for the lunch and went back. The rain started around 6:00PM and lasted for 3 hours. I had to come back to the office for the meeting and stayed there until 10:30PM. Went home and headed straight to the bed.|
|6/27||I woke up once, when the outside was still not bright, I thought it was okay so I just went back to sleep. Next time when I woke up was already 7:00AM. I must have forgot to set the alarm clock. Did not had enough time for the running in the morning so I just stretched my body and headed to work. Visited client for a day and came back around 6:00PM. I stopped by Violin Shop to get mine back then came back to my apartment. There's been some rain but it was sunny at the time so I went out and run for 4 miles. I had to come back to office for the evening meeting. I felt tired so I was going home slow but decided to fill my car up. Well, I forgot to turn the lights and a Police car saw it. Oops. I turned them up quick but the kindly cruiser escorted me to my apartment. Came home around 11:00PM. Just heading straight to the bed.|
|6/28||Woke up at 6:00AM. Stretched my body and went
for a quick run before heading to work. Called my coworkers to make sure
they are okay. One was sick and the other one was going to a trip. Had lunch
at home, and came back to the office. I needed to go to Michigan for a
meeting tomorrow so I reserved a car, and a hotel. In the evening, I went to
pick up a rental car for the business trip. They got me a 2006 Infiniti G35.
It was a basic grade but was enough for me to enjoy 280hp. Unfortunately I
never get to play with it because my trip was canceled. I worked out at a
gym for a while and came back to the apartment. Going to bed around 11:00PM.
|6/29||Woke up at 6:00AM, a bit tired but a lot better than when I woke up yesterday. I still could not go out and run in the morning. I spent whole day at office, working on the assignments but I did finish them by the evening. Came back home around 6:30PM, went out for running for a while. Relaxed in the evening and went to bed at 10:30PM.|
|6/30||[Japan's prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi
visited Elvis Presley's house in TN with U.S. president G. W. Bush.]
It's payday Friday. I went to run in the morning and headed to work. Stayed there whole day but took my coworker to an American buffet, since his credit for meals got canceled due to company policy and I felt a bit sorry for him. Worked until 6:30PM to complete work before the break. Other coworkers left office for golfing by 5:30PM, my. Came home, called my friends, who are just coming back from 4wks vacation in the evening. Did not feel like going to bed early to I stayed up late until 11:00PM.
