From late this afternoon, I have not done any work. Although I feel I have been energetic during this time, I am just reluctant to do anything, although I have so much to do and I have already fallen behind my plan.
Now, I reflected and tried to find out the reason why, I hope the same thing will not happen or at least happen less frequently in the future.
Firstly, the schdule is too full and for most task I do not leave myself enough time. Therefore, I feel too tired, frustrated and gradually give up working. Next time, when I arrange a schedule for a whole week, I should be more generous to myself and be more specific about the tasks. For example, for the reading material, I should count the numbers of pages and estimated the time. I should not just write it in the schedul: this afternoon, I should finish this reading and that reading. Then, the fact is that I just cannot do that. Then, I feel frustrated and do not have the great sense of achievements.
Secondly, when I felt I was still in a good mood, I did not go on working. Instead, I chose to rest, have food, and enjoy the music and TV series, as the time were designed to do these staff. However, when I had to do work, I felt I just did not want to do any work. In the future, I also need to do adjustment according to the my mood.
Finally, when I felt I was not in the right state of working, I just gave up. I did not make effective effort to get back my concentration again. I just checked my email, visited the spaces of my friends again and again and chatted with friends. I find that this is not good method at all. For one thing, I did not feel good and I felt that it was normal as most people felt like me; for another thing, instead of encouraging my friends, I made a bad effort on them, pulling them down. I think, maybe like me, they will think they do not need to work hard as most peopel do not do that. Next time, I will try this method: Lie on the bed, listen to some music. Then, try to think more why I should do this, the postive results of it, and if I do not do that, what the bad result is. Of course, I will think more about the positive results.
I hope, in this way, I can tidy up my life and gradually have a more efficient lifestyle.

Yesterday, I went to Keniworth Castle for the wonderful firework with my friends, but without my boyfriend. Maybe, I was too excited or something, I just did not give him any call.
He complained it in his blog: he felt lonely in this night full of joyous din. Although he had to review because he woould take an exam on next Monday, he just could not concentrate. He needed some encouragement or relaxation… However, I was far away…
Yes, indeed. For this love relationship, I need to devote more. Indeed, just a call or just a simpel message can help me cherish the love…

On Friday, I was inspired a lot by the conversation with Red, one of my tutors, who is so brilliant. One of her important advice is Reflection. Be critical of yourself and reflect on yourself often; then, you will make progress faster.
Now, I am determinded to write reflection in English everyday. I hope, every friend will supervise me. In addition, you can help me correct my grammar mistakes and give me valuable advice.
