Haven’t had any post in the last 15 days and that kinda made me feel guilty so here it is. Oh and I have also given up on the challenge (_ _”). I guess I was just very out of space ever since the Work Experience.
First up was my birthday which was two weeks ago on 9/11. After our intense Maths exams and all that weather, rain and hail, I managed to meet up with a guy friend cause we had been planning to meet up for Dymocks as soon as my and his HSC exams finished. Picked two books: We Need To Talk About Kevin and Body Language. Pretty awesome and I can’t wait to read them, but gonna contact them first, and some other books too cause I was lazy to get it all done before. Anyway, we headed to have froyo as promised as for his completion of Year 12 exams. LOL 6 years of hard work, fair enough. Went to Coles and Woolworths after to…pick sweet potatoes, for his house party with friends the next day. I think we just walked a lot that afternoon cause my legs were sore. Had fun though, cause I was home alone when I got home.
The week after was Work Experience and even now I really can’t spend all that time telling every little detail about it to anyone. That is why I was super glad that I had Shirley doing it with me, now we have our own little jokes that no one can understand. We worked at House With No Steps in Strathfield and if you don’t already know, it is a disability support group home, which means people with disabilities share a home together and we take care of them. Now talking about ‘take care’, it’s not just personal care, it is basically everything in their daily lives that we assist with. Doctor appointments, day programmes, budgets, meals, etc. All that. We signed a confidentiality contract sorta paper so I guess I shouldn’t say much about it. Just that I, and I’m sure Shirley too, we learned a lot. It is a very tough job and haha, tougher when you have to work with a ridiculous co-worker. “You’ve got to be a special soul to do this job.” – what a client’s sister told us. The last day was remarkable, talked about life aspects and humans with our manager, was so touched by everything she said. Oh and in the morning we bought a rose for our client ;], hoped it cheered her up out of the bad weather.
Made my lunch for work. Onigiri with tuna, korokke and some random egg slices 😛
This week was Week 7 of school and we didn’t do much, just got exam papers back. I got everything back except English. Got alright for Geography, IST and Commerce. So, the 3 subjects that I bascially did not study for due to my stupid crammed timetable. Maths was okay too, though I thought I could do better, a lot better. Science was disappointing but I got over that, that paper was pretty much like a troll. Worse paper I’ve ever got for Science. But again, can’t change anything now, I should get myself prepared for next year rather than looking back at this cause guess what? This year was totally outa my control. Japanese however, I was very happy with it since I spent a lot of time on it and it was all well paid off. Improved marks and Miss praised for my dedication. As for she didn’t put me on the recommendation list for this subject earlier this year, she probably took that back now cause ever since then I never thought of backing up. That probably was my biggest motivation to do good in this exam. When you know what you want and believe you can do it, you’re already half way there. Yeah? I have a guy friend from Taekwondo who was doing Extension for his HSC and he sent me some notes with very useful guidelines. Can’t tell him how thankful I am :].
So, as said, after exams Ima like a lost soul. Kept hanging out after school and I’m already broke. On Monday was meant to meet up with this old guy friend whom I hadn’t seen in person for almost 3 years but ended up waiting there for nearly 2 hours cause he was stuck at work unexpectedly and my phone ran out of battery. How dramatic is that. And he ran there after work to find me but I was already gone, only a short while before that. He called in the evening and suggested to meet again the next day and he came waiting outside my school. We went to Yogohouse cause I had no idea what else to do in Strathfield. Then took train to Burwood and stayed in the library to play games on my phone. He asked to go for movies in City and he would take me home but it would be way too late and of course I wouldn’t dare to ask Mum. I wished we could do something nicer cause who knows when is the next time we’re going to see each other again? But I did go to see a movie haha, with my siblings though, on Thursday night and got home pretty late. Watched Breaking Dawn 2. I was never a fan of Twilight Saga but was just curious of the ending. I reckon Breaking Dawn was the best part out of all. Characters and plot. My sister and I just found Robert’s beauty very hard to understand as for how some people think he’s so good looking. Not to offend his appearance but his acting is just…+.+ I thought the production team could have done better, in choosing the cast. At least be half as hot as Taylor.
Went to a friend’s house after school on Wednesday and they taught me me how to play this Naruto fighting game on Xbox. Pretty awesome but I needed more practice. It was amusing to see their little brothers play together lol.
After school on Thursday went to have dinner in a Korean restaurant nearby with some girls cause two of them were leaving for Hong Kong today. And this other girl changes school next year so I wanted to spend more time with her. We ordered seafood pancake, yakisoba, Korean rice cakes and some beef that Shirley ordered. We took turns to keep asking for refills of the potatoes dish XP. Don’t know what it’s called, very soft and sweet. Really yum.
Had Noggi froyo yesterday as another time out with the girl before her flight. Realised I’ve been having froyo a lot OMG…just because my school is in Strathfield -_-.
Australian Business Week next week. Gonna join with the boys from the same grade from our brother school for this program. I’m personally not interested in business stuff and wouldn’t go if it wasn’t compulsory. But reckon we might have some fun there with the boys. They’re gonna turn into ‘endangered species’ once they enter our school.
