I ended up not to get my laptop fixed...coz it's too much time and money consuming. It's not worth 400 bucks, aproximetly.
I'd rather bring it back home.
Today, I wrote the first "fake" article at my internship about the bombimg attack in pakistan.
Anyway, the reason why I'm posting this is I was moved from one article in today's washington post-I kept reading news papers this morning coz I had nothing to do-discribing the trial of september 11, focused on the testimonies by the families of victems.
I felt like as if I was reading a novel or something and sinked into it.
The most outstanding part is the woman telling about the life of her lost husband.
In the article, She talks how she misses him.
Here, I quote the article.
<Lashawn Clark recalled how her husband, Keefe, an executive chef working on the 96th floor of the trade center Sept. 11, wrote her poetry and prepared her surprise gourmet meals, lay rose petals at her feet and gave her manicures, pedicures and massages "just because."
"I miss the pampering. I miss the love," she said, her voice breaking. "I miss his smell, I miss his touch. I miss the conversations, I miss him finishing my sentences. I miss the just becauses.>

I think these phrases discrives what implies to lose someone forever with the words we can understand.
The same kind of remedies keep happening around the world at the moment I am typing this single l e t t e r.
What else I assumed is the trials in united states could be organized in relatively emotional way.
Although this might be an exceptional case, these testimonials was very effectively organized to move people's emotion.
Well, at least I felt so.
Maybe, this could explain one of the significant features of anglo-american common law system compared to civil law system in Japan.
After a while, I found myself a bit dipressed noticing the news paers were full of remedies, murders, totures, or unhappiness.
As a matter of fact, is this the mission of news papers, tv programs, magazines, and so on?
To tell people the "impressive" stories, which most of the time falls into bad news?
Because it gets more attention, and they can earn more money?
Well, these are just random thoughs of mine, and I have to prepare for the french quize tomorrow, which's follen into my favorite class coz I'm gonna go to france this summer and eat plenty of oysters, hehe.
