Listening Skill

Almost a year in England now, but my listening skill haven't improved much. Today I just asked my Indian flat mate to repeat his sentence for 3 times!!! I think maybe because he speaks very fast so I find it's difficult to understand? It's not an easy practice to try to familiarise myself with many different accents I have to face. But it's a challenging work. Hope I'll get better by the time I have to go home for good.

Be Optimistic

"Change crises into opportunities". This is such an optimistic saying. I'm now trying to change my yesterday kitchen bad experience into my opportunity. If it's not because I want to take a photo of my messy kitchen to show my friends, I would not have thought I'll be able to take any photo again after my vision got worse 3 years ago.

However, because of this situation, I am inspired to take more photos (although some may out of focus). But I like to take photos. Although I cannot see them very well with my eye now, I can still see and feel them from my imagination. Therefore, I may set up my own collection and let see what will happen in the future. Who knows, I maybe able to collect them until I can exhibit them one day just like the blind Malaysian guy I'd read about him sometimes ago. My friend sent me that article via email. It's about a blind guy who use his digital camera to take photos of things around him although he cannot see them. He just make a shoot from his instinct and feeling. Some photos may show something a sighted person may not even thinking of taking it.

Ok, let's see. No one knows the future!

What's Next???

Sink blocked…rubbish overflown…food and dish stolen…kitchen in a mess…what else can you expect more? So tired today after I had a dirty adventure in my flat's kitchen to cook myself meals to keep me working. I had just picked up rubbish from the floor and put them into the empty bag . Moreover, I was a do-it-yourself plummer trying to unblock the sink with a chopstick. Hope it won't block again soon. So tired.

How can these people be so irresponsible with what they had done. Oh, and before I left the kitchen, a girl came to take several chairs back to her kitchen 'cos someone borrowed them last night and had not returned them to her flat. She has no chair to sit and eat! What a pity. See? How irresponsible people can be…education can't teach them anything about this. What a sad truth to be realised.

Harry Potter and the Half–blood Prince

Oh my God! I'm getting addicted to Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince. I'll have to try to restrain myself from reading it too much until I don't work. I should now focusing on writing my dissertation but…you know, it's so difficult to resist when you have the book in your hand :P I'm now 1/4 of it and know that if I continued, the degree of the book's excitement will even makes it harder to hold myself back not to finish the book. Anyway, whatever will be will be.

More Complicated than I Thought

I'm in the initital state of writing my dissertation right now (as my supervisor said). I'd a meeting with her yesterday and found out that to work on a dissertation is really a more complicated job than I'd thought it is. Anyway, since everybody can do it so do I. My mother always says that "Your thinking has an effect on the outcome". She meant to say that if I think I can do – the writing is all right, I will be able to write. But if I think I can't, then I can't. Therefore, I'm trying to input positive thinking into my head right now that I'll be able to write it, I'll finish it finally. Yes, I can!

3/4 Way Through

Almost a year now that I've been here (I also count the time I went back home). It's hard to believe that in 2–3 months' time I'll finish my Master degree. How fast it is. Now all my classes and assignments are completed. The only and most important task left is a dissertation. As always, it's very difficult to get start. I don't know exactly how to start writing. I used to think that I like to write because one of my friends as well as my mother said that my writing works are good. However, I don't think I like it anymore. It's so difficult to compose an essay. I'll have to live with it for around 2 more months. Can't imagine what it'd be like when I start my Ph.D. Did I make the right decision to continue my study? I hope so. There's a saying that "suffer first and be happy later". Then, if I want a better future, I'll have to be patient.

How unproductive I am. It is less than 2 weeks now before I have to submit my lass assignment. But I haven't started any word on it. I went to my friend's house to use her phone to call back to Thailand to interview my interviewees. Result? Only 2 people were interviewed. I tried to interview the third but there's a problem with the phone signal so we had to postpone it till this weekend. Hope the signal will improve. Therefore, the whole day of today ended up with only 2 interviews for my dissertation and a file read this morning about my assignment. I'll have to start working seriously now (for my assignment).

It's been a while that I had disappeared from writing into the blog. Anyway, I'm now a bit confused. I don't know what I should do first between my last FE assignment and my dissertation. My supervisor recommended me to do both at the same time. She told me not to wait until I'd submitted my last assignment to start on my dissertation. I believe her but I found out that I can't do as she said. I think I'll have to set the priority and work one at a time. I wonder what will happen in my life in the future if I can't do many things at the same time. Why is it so difficult. Many people work and study at the same time but I only studying and still find it hard to do both assignment and dissertation at the same time.

I'm back!

At last I am back here at Warwick again. The two-month holiday in Thailand passed so uickly. Time really flies. Now, I have to come back and try to get to work again. I feel strange on the first day that I was back here. Really miss home and people back there. Anyway, I hope I'll have a chance to go back again soon.

Congratulations to the new freshies. There are 2 blind students passed the entrance examination this year. It's such a good news to know that at least there are still some blind who still work hard for their education and ready to fight for the barriers that await them.
