Today was an awesome day because:

- I HAVE TONIGHT OFF (but will prob. have to start a new assignment/get back to readings/write up some notes tomorrow sob)
- It was a great day at work. I am in a great mood now so I can say that I love my job. (It is going to be a problem when I have to start looking for 'real' jobs - actually that should be around now). I managed to teach some stuff & the kids seemed to get it. When you hear someone say 'thank you' to you, you feel so good about it. I think it would be great being a teacher. & I love Tuesdays because it's my 'training day' where I get to just be the back-up tutor. The other tutor is a lot older, is super-organised and has a great memory so I can just take my time explaining things to individual kids. And the kids here are great. Especially M. Usually I get along better with the younger kids (i.e. 4-8 years old) and he is in year 7 but he is eurasian and so adorable and eager-to-please and younger-brother-ish, you just want to squish him (or as I recently learnt the Korean expression is, 깨물어주고싶어). Kids like him make my day -b

From my management textbook:

Coercive power – power that rests on the application or threat of application, of physical sanctions such as pain, the arousal of frustration through restriction of movement, or the controlling by force of basic physiological or safety needs.

Why does it sound so wrong lol.

1. Torts class for tomorrow was cancelled because the tutor is sick. Still have MGMT but it's such a waste of time; I would not bother going to uni -- but then I remembered that 1) I still have to do the groupwork and 2) I have law peer tutoring at 10. SOB

It feels like summer is coming. The jasmine hanging on the gate has started flowering, so every morning when I lift the latch of the gate the  scent follows me out onto the footpath. It feels like summer; electric fans, ice blocks after school, satay in the evening.

I finished part A yesterday but am still harbouring serious doubts as to whether I did it correctly. Also, tried to start on the essay. I said I would clean the bathroom tomorrow so I have to do that; I also need to study for the 漢字 test on Monday. It looks like despite my best efforts, uni is finally catching up to me.

I was talking with a friend today about how you really can't judge a book by it's cover. The thing is, it's so easy to say and to understand but so hard to actually put into practice. I thought I understood this by the end of year 11, but when I meet people, I still never stop and think of the possibility that they could be anything more than what they seem like at first glance. But they are. That girl who seemed really nice at first, is actually a snob. That guy who seemed so smart and confident is actually a leech. That guy who seemed friendly is actually a tool. That guy who seemed nerdy is actually a playboy stalker. And then there are those who  seems really interesting and social online, but in real life they have the personality of a rock.

On the other hand, those people I overlooked at first are unexpectedly kind or entertaining or thoughtful. There are a lot of examples from Ruse I can think of; L, K, K, Y. There are less uni examples, although maybe V, I, R.


Also, law assignment. I thought I understood torts. I was wrong.

Tomorrow I am taking my first class. I am scared. It is not particularly convenient, comfortable, useful or well-paying and I was wondering if it was worth bothering to even do it. But it would be hard to find another person in 3 days, right? And I was thinking of that quote, when they say, the time will come when you need to choose between what is easy and what is right, and so I thought, I might as well try it. So I will がんばります.

I want to work at the cafe again. Actually I don't like it when I am there, except for the bit where I get to sit down and eat my food with a magazine and a nice drink, and when the customers smile and say thank you for the food, and the bit where I get money, but the manager is nice to me and it is good experience.

Today I got paid $10 for standing around doing nothing. It was excellent.

If only I could be a model; I could do that for a living.
But I still feel very ripped off.

I-I think my Mum may actually let me go to Malaysia. And my aunt says I can stay with her~ So now if I can get the concert tickets and drag someone to come with me everything will be sorted. This gives me some incentive to work hard, because if I do crap in my hsc I will most probably die D:

Photos from last day of school and from balmoral under the cut. It was boring, but kind of relaxing too.

photos. )

Today was the last full day of school D: 
And also the last round of vaccinations yey.

People can't use my camera haha. I think around half the photos turned out blurry ;_; But they don't look so bad once you've resized them. Putting some of the non-blurry ones up here.
