I met my personal tutor, Jane, just now. This is my first time to see her. She is really nice and I will definitely be happy to meet her again.=)
I've done my study skills assignment! I spent 2 days to look for useful materials and learn about referencing. Then, it took me 2 days to write it and I think the time spent is ok as this is the first time to write a 'formal' paper. I found it's quite useful for me as a practice for my PMAs. I've read some books about online research and I've learn some skills which helps to do our research using the online materials. I am sure this will help with my project proposal and CBE PMA.
And I went to a library resources tutorial for WMG students yesterday. I found that there is a huge source of academic materials available for us. That's really too much and it is difficult to get start. But this tutorial is quite useful and there are some recommandations for the databases to choose and I will definitely benefit from this. I wish I could have two to three more years staying in Warwick and make good use of these valuable resources, not just for academic purpose but also for my own interests>0<
It's week 5 already. So far, I really enjoy my academic life here. In the past two weeks, I don't have classes but I read a lot about my module, the project topic that interest me and the study skills thing. I didn't read that much in my previous university life. At that time, I hate reading academic materials. But now, I just find that I really enjoy learning, reading and staying in the library. I think the reason must be I can concentrate a lot more in Warwick as I come alone. There are not many things that burden me here after I have settled down. I feel really good to concentrate on my work. I believe I should learn a lot from this experience and keep this working style throughout my life. Of course, I don't mean to work overseas, away from my home town. I am sure I will go back to Hong Kong after a year. What I meant is the way I focus on my work. I've only realized that I did not work like this before. What a surprise for me! Anyway~ keep this up!!CHEERS^^
