no mood for anything
Saturday. 11.20.04 9:17 pm
Such a hot day!!

Woke up early this morning, it is too hot to sleep, couldn't lay on my bed any longer.

I was planned to go ballet at 12pm, but I gave up after I set my hair. I called Snady for lunch, but she didn't pick up, so I switched on my laptop, and connected to internet, try to chat with friends, but no one online.

Mark called me to go yum cha, as he had some business in Burwood, so we can travel to city together. However, Sandy was suffering in period paid, so we went to pharmacy after lunch.

I asked some painkillers for myself too, but the pharmist said mine is a serious case, and adviced me to see doctor first. (O///O)

I should do some study this weekend, but I have no mood to do.

Need to do:

- Monday - draft for PR
- Tuesday - Questionnaire
- Wednesday - Magazine cover
- Thurday - None
- Friday - meeting at 11:00 UTS

Sento un affetto pien di desir,

Gelo, e poi sento l'alma avvampar,

Ricero un bene fuori di me.

Non so ch'il tiene,non so cos'?
(I know not who holds it nor what it is)

Sospiro e gemo senza voler,
(I sigh and groan without wishing)
palpito e tremo senza saper.
(I shake and tremble without knowing why)
Non trovo pace notte, n?d?
(I find no peace by night or day)
ma pur mi piace languir cos?
(but yet to languish thus is sheer delight)

Vio che sapete che cosa ?amor,
(Your ladies who know what love is)
donne vedete s'io l'ho nel cor, donne vedete s'io l'ho nel cor.

homework checking (but i didn't do it)
Thursday. 11.18.04 10:03 pm

I wake up at 6am, but I am still late to school. Well, 6am was too early for me, so I lay on bed until 9am, and thinking should I go to school, seriously, for half an hour.

I met James outside train station, and it was Brandon, Sarah, and Steve's presentation in class, they presented long time, and seems everyone is doing better than my group.

Michael checked homwork after presentation, I didn't do, and luckliy, I wasn't the only one. So I copied the answer from Steve's presentation handout, quickly, and showed the work from first week. However, I lost half mark as I didn't have the handout from last week.

I am feeling so tired, and I don't even know why.

I already sleep 12 hours a day

some people said the more you sleep, the more tired you've got, but I don't want to leave my bed if I don't sleep for 10 hours. And I've got headache everyday, maybe it works with the weather, or stress, but I don't know where is my stress from. I worry to my study, but they are not the means to headache.

And menstruation will come this week, as I can feel the pain now. I hope it is not tomorrow, as I have ballet at night. Thursday will be even tired, but I don't want to miss the dancing class, and school, I must have 80% attendence this semester.

new semester,

new school day

hope to keep my attendence and marks.

Have Comm 311 'Communications Professional Practice' this morning, our lecture was the former reporter of channel nine news - Deborah Cornwall. She is so cool, and I hope I will be success as her one day, to be a news reporter.

The class was interesting and fun.

After a short introduction to the class, communication, and media industry, Deborah showed us a video of her pervios reports in Channel Nine news. Then we had interview exercise, James and Lena's role play was funny, James acted as a sex shop owner, and interviewed by Lena. And James is really planning to interview a sex shop owner for the next week exercise.

Teri could not enrolled to the same class to us, and she asked us to go to afternoon class with her. Although I don't like afternoon class, I will change if Lena goes to afternoon, as I don't want to be alone in class.
