Experiencing is believing September 27, 2006

Let me start off with a statement: a beautiful, big, blue bike.

OK, then I want to ask several questions:

What is big?  Large in size?  Compared to what?

Blue?  What’s that?  Can you even define colour?

What do you mean by beautiful?  “Pleasing to the senses”?  What’s that?

All those questions above can be answered by looking up into a dictionary, but the answers don’t really mean anything to me.  And yet, when so many concepts that are difficult to define are put together to form a sentence, we know what the sentence means: a beautiful, big, blue bike.

How do we understand it?  How?

By experiencing.

When you were only a baby, surely your parents didn’t tell you what pain was, right?  And yet you know what is pain.  Because you’ve felt it, you’ve experienced it.

Same goes with understanding everything else around you: by experiencing them.

Then you’ll be able to appreciate, to understand.

Seeingis not believing.

Experiencing is.

The beauty and horror of multi-tasking September 21, 2006

Posted by origino in My thoughts.

I always multi-task.

Do you?

If you don’t know what I mean by multi-tasking, let me ask you a question: when you’re using the computer, do you open up, let’s say, Microsoft Word, MSN messenger and the web browser, and then use them all at once?

That’s multi-tasking.

And that’s what I usually do.

Not that it’s a bad habit… I mean, if you multi-task wisely it can sure help you save time.  But if you’re doing a billion things at the same time, you’ll definitely collapse.

And so will the computer 😀

So, think, before you multi-task.

Think.

Before opening up another new window, ask yourself, “do I really need this?”

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a gazillion windows waiting for me to be closed…

P.S. multi-tasking actually means doing several things at once, but here I’m just talking about using the computer.

Still at school and just finished my lunch.  I was down at the store. waiting in the long, long line… and saw some of my old classmates sorta… 插隊 ——— but this isn’t my point.  I just got off the P.E. lesson, I was tired, hungry, thirsty… and I just didn’t want to… talk.  So, I’d like to say sorry to them if I seemed a little unfriendly when they said hi to me.

Sorry! 😦

Notice: I’ve just finished writing an entry about today’s Eng. Lit. sudden quiz and the entry showed up blankBlank!  As in nothing!  I’m not in the mood of rewriting the whole thing right now… really depressed.  Not that I’ll switch back to Xanga 😉

I promised myself that I won’t use the computer after I get home, so I’m still in school as I’m writing this entry.  The AEC came late… they didn’t show up until lunch time.  Public condemnation for them! 😉

We’re going to have Bio. lesson today and I bring the complete set of my milk teeth to school.  It’ll be a nice (or disguesting) prop for the teacher to use… (photos available soon!)

P.S. I voted for the one that starts with a V.

Unrelated:

I checked the Apple web site and discovered that there are big changes concerning the iPod video, iPod nano and iPod shuffle.  The nano and the shuffle have a brand new look and you can watch a full-length movie and play games on the iPod video.  I don’t have much time to talk about it in detail so just check their web site: http://www.apple.com/itunes/

I think you’ll be interested.
