Busy days @ 3/11/2007

知味生活
I have enrolled in 4 modules this semester, and regularly attend an additional lecture every Wednesday. Furthermore, I get a part-time job as a tutor of a little boy. And sometimes I have to participate in some activities in the campus. So I become extremely busy these days.

It seems all the courses I am taking this term are more difficult than the last term. A lot of mathematics and domain knowledge are needed for these courses.

I am exciting about learning something new. I have learned little about finance before. The terms of finance in English are quite different from daily-life english. I begin to know future, option, and swap etc. in Financial Computing. It makes me feel I am getting closer to this international finance center. And multimedia technologies, which is said to be an art of deceiving eyes and ears, is also very interesting.

But the mathematics behind these courses can cost a lot of energy.

My student is a little primary school boy  . I met him and his family on the tram coincidently. His mother was looking for a tutor for him then. The boy is very lovely, so I became his tutor by accident. The job is quite easy. I feel more like a babysitter than a tutor. I watch him do his homework and then teach him some English. The education in HK is quite different from mainland. The boy has to do many exercises online. There are many databases that cover all subjects. Colorful animations and games are available. The school allocates every student an account and password and keep a record for them. They learn how to use computer and many political or daily news from the very beginning. The english textbook is different from mainland too. Nearly every word can be seen in daily life. Sometimes I even meet words on his textbook that I never learnt before, such as chilli fish, yoghurt, etc. I am ashamed about it.:(

I have been away from the badminton team for a long time. I am looking forward to play badminton. It is very probably that I won't be able to make it until two weeks later. Anyway, I should be satisfied that I saw two friends from badminton team yesterday and had a wonderful time with them.

chilli fish不是水煮鱼吧?

我不去想是否能够成功
既然选择了远方
便只顾风雨兼程

我不去想能否赢得爱情
既然钟情于玫瑰
就勇敢地吐露真诚

我不去想身后会不会袭来寒风冷雨
既然目标是地平线
留给世界的只能是背影

我不去想未来是平坦还是泥泞
只要热爱生命
一切,都在意料中

----汪国真《热爱生命》
