Aim of the Decision Making activity
- To show how to analyse a decision by weighing up the pros and cons.
My decision was whether I should go home in August. Because from the Easter holiday on, there is no course time anymore even in summer term, that means at leastI have nearly 4 months no course time. Since I haven't go home for over half a year, I consider may be I should go back for some time before the dissertation time. But after this force field decision making activity, I decide not to go home until I finish my dissertation. Actually, I am not surprised with the result, because I have made the same decision without the activity. And I did this activity quite slowly and carefully judged every item. I think it is very useful to break down the decision into pros and cons.
Easter- The word derives from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring and fertility for whom festivals were held at the time of the spring equinox. In most other European countries the festival’s name derives from the Hebrew word ‘pesach’, acknowledging Easter’s close connection to the Jewish Passover.
Maundy Thursday —The Thursday before Easter is remembered by Christians as the day of the Last Supper, when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and established the ceremony known as the Eucharist.
Good Friday—On Good Friday Jesus was executed by crucifixion, his body was taken down from the cross and buried in a cave, it is believed
Easter Sunday—-After his death, Jesus’ tomb was guarded and a stone was put over the entrance so no-one could steal the body. The scriptures say a group of women visited the grave on the following Sunday and found the stone had been moved and the tomb was empty. Jesus was seen that day and for days afterwards by many people – his followers believing God had raised him from the dead
eggs—Pagan worshippers regarded eggs as a symbol of fertility and new beginning. The egg was later adopted by Christianity as a symbol of the resurrection
Easter bunny— As with the egg, bunny rabbits were celebrated at the time of the spring equinox for their fertility, and representation of new life

- Down With Love  [DVD]
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Renee Zellweger
Both are my favorate actors. Renee Zellweger is so good at performing in the romance comedy. May be she is not very beautiful, but I think she's charming and I like the way she acts—natural and good fun without overdoing.
The most presantly surprise is Ewan McGregor's performing. He's soooo charimatic and sexy even in a comedy. I have watched his another film The Pillow Book _that directed by _Peter Greenaway, in which Ewan acts as a bisexual translator. It was the first time I saw his performance, but I were already attracted and shocked by him.
