Second review for team role

Our group leader, my friend and I arrived at the house in the evening on that Saturday. The small trouble we met was that we were not sure where the house was. It was a big mistake for me to bring a map. Our group leader drew a small map which finally helps us arrive.

After looking around in the house, we were quite satisfied and our group leader asked the tenant about the inconvience about that house. I thought that it was a very good question. The tenant said there were some water leakage and the fan in the shower make it cold in the winter.

We thought we can tolerate the disadvantages so the group leader reserved the house. Then we confirmed and signed the contract in time. Therefore, the accomodation problem was almost solved. By the way, I asked my friend to choose a room and reminded the group leader to check if everything was fine.

The only problem is that the prices for each room are very close but the differences in room sizes are extremely large. So I propose that we may decide the rooms by changing the price ourselves to make everyone satisfy. We may discuss this later when we move in the house. 

Fourth review for making notes

Due to the style of some lecturer, I think the problem is not about note taking but the preparation before the lecture. I will try to read through the lecture notes before the lecture next time.

The key words method lets me copy the notes just before they are rubbed out.

Fourth review for reading

Unfortunately, the lectures on the English literature clashes with my economics class. But there are audio recordings available on its website.

Fortunately, I found something exciting from one of the books I am reading. These words are almost what I thought about if the word "passion" can be understood in a wider way:

" 'all passions, even the most unpleasant, are as passions pleasant' because 'they make us... more conscious of our existence, they make us feel more real.' "    Hannah Arendt    "Men in dark times"

Fifth review for communication

Recently I have discussed some assignment problems and the content of the lectures with classmates who attend the same lectures. Furthermore, we also extended our topics to other different modules chosen by some of us.

Since I did not know anything about my two new roommates at all, we chat a lot when we meet each other on the campus. 

My mentor sent me an email to invite her mentees to a lunch on next Monday. This will be  a good chance for me listen to their lives in the university. And I got some helps and advices from my mentor for one of my computing assignment through email.
