Time and the Future
November 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
I’m currently taking three courses at my university:
One of them is the Japanese language class I’m taking in preparation for going abroad in January. I have spent some time during the last weeks preparing for the kanji test I have tomorrow. Among the kanji ideograms I have to write is the sign 年, toshi or nen, meaning “year”.
One of them is called Future Studies and Forecasts. I have spent most of the weekend trying to analyze future scenarios, the idea of futures, utopias etc. Today I finally got started on the paper we’ll be handing in next week.
One of them is called Theory of Science and Research Methods. I should probably get started on the final examination part of this, but I haven’t yet.
Today two videos that I have looked forward to were released. One is called 1000年、ずっとそばにいて・・・:
One is called Humanoids, but the lyrics are about the future:
What song will I get for when I start writing the final part for the methods course?
(Also, here I am writing on a blog called The Future is Idol!)
Honestly, I’m a little creeped out by these coincidences.
