It has been very cold in Tokyo for these past three weeks. It feels rather colder than in Vancouver because my house has no central heating. I don't intend to put down my laziness to the weather, but too cold weather surely makes us slow. I had been in the state of hibernation staying in my rather warm room, sitting at the desk in front of PC, and doing nothing especially. I've met several obstacles about my work and I'm now wondering how to deal with them. A few days ago, I moved the desk and the bookshelf in my room for a change of pace. I think it's better than before and I can concentrate on my work. The first month of 2008 is going to end in a few days. I have to make up for lost time.
