火曜日に金融のレポートが締め切りですので、この週末は絶対自宅に籠ると言ったのに、結局毎日出掛けたんだ。

どうすればいいの?!!:(

いつも勉強を先延ばしにするのはだめですね。むかつく。本当に、後悔しています。

そう言えば、ちなみに、先週の日本語クラスで、日本からのゲストに先生が大勢招かれました。

目的は日本の大学生活と就職活動について、私達と話し合うことです。

ゲストの方のほとんどは大学を卒業して、すぐシドニーに英語の勉強やワーキングホリデーのために来ました。面白い事に、彼らは実際には日本で就職活動をしなかったそうです。

でも私もそんな卒業後の計画が欲しいですね。きっと楽しいし、貴重な経験も後に役立つと思います。

During jap class last week, sensei (teacher) invited a load of people in their 20s from japan to chat with us about university life and employment activities there.

I have no idea where she gathered them from, but about 15 people arrived (that day with the phenomenal sandstorm!) and we basically paired up and conversed with each of them in Japanese for 5-10minutes in rotation. Kind of like casual speed dating but more educational and no flirting.

Anyway it was a fun experience and interestingly enough, most of them have not gone for any formal interviews in Japanese corporate companies (which is quite the norm and have so many tacit conventions it’s crazy.  e.g. stepping in to sit in the chair in 3 specific steps or something). In other words, right after they graduated from uni they came over to Sydney on a working holiday or just to study English.

I think that’s pretty cool and definitely something I would do too. There’s a JET (japanese-english teaching) programme information session going on this wed so I’ll go check it out. Doubt I can go for it though because the minimum length of the programme is a year long.

rocket and spinach salad with natto, avocado and kumatoes

Added natto to a salad I prepared last night. Kind of strange, but not bad. My friends said they smell like feet.

Today we went to check out the annual Malaysian festival held in darling harbour. I think I’ve been going there every year since year 10/11, so this is my 5th time in a row already haha it’s practically a tradition.
