好久以前就一直想去湖区玩，这个星期终于成行。正好YJ在Lancaster Uni读，提供住宿，还可以让他带我周围去玩，哈。这里顺便讲讲买ticket的事，我买的是3 days advanced ticket, 两张single加在一起比买一张return还便宜三分之一。问题是这种ticket不是常常有，有的话时间也不一定合适。但是有趣的是，虽然这种票规定必须在指定时间点坐车，但是票上面并没有标明时间，我定那张票本来要在birmingham转车的，但是我发现coventry出发的那班车根本赶不上下一班车，于是我问工作人员，他说可以直接坐另外一班由Coventry直到的。回来那程也一样，几时坐都可以。所以。。。以后只要看到这种票，不用管时间，照买就是了。
中午到达Lancaster,YJ到火车站接我，然后跟他到超市买了一些晚上要煮的菜就回lancaster U. 去了这么多地方，我发现只要是city都比coventry好，而且北部的城市，建筑和风景都比南部要优雅的多。lancaster位于英格兰西北部，地处山势地区，一路上有好多坡道。而lancaster U跟warwick一样，都是在市郊，坐Bus回去的路上，也经过好多民宅，只是这些房屋看上去都比这里的高雅漂亮。一间一间小别墅整整齐齐地排列在沿坡小路两边，每间门前都有一个小花园，而且种满了各种红红绿绿的花花草草，真的好喜欢。
Lancaster周围有很多牧场，YJ告诉我这里有中国学生到牧场放羊打工的，有趣有趣。和warwick 一样，Lancaster U也是现代建筑风格，不过讲到校园环境，我还是要说warwick漂亮得多..

When I lose an hour
And I feel blue
With a sleepy face
while I don't want to sleep
I try to phone somebody
but I don't feel like talking
What's wrong with me

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
