If BBC doesn’t report, I won’t know it’s the election day in Australia. It seems I live in this country but I know nothing about the politics, whatever hung parliament or absolute majority, it’s really not my business.
It was cold last week, days after days, it just rained, finally it’s a sunny day today. I went to the gym in the morning, when I was back on the bike, with my hoddies, I could feel the sunshine in the wind, it reminded me the Chinese New Year. In my memory, winter is always the New Year time, firecrackers, dumplings, family, what else?
However it’s still the winter in Australia, winter break is short, central heating is still on, and I have to work hard on my studies. From the beginning of the semester I could feel the pressure, new subjects, awful lecture, I need to use every minute to study, otherwise I won’t catch up. Last week, there was a piece of good news, I was approved to enrol for the research unit in the last semester, that is 1 year later. So I can write two 30000 word essays for my business law degree, which is quite a shortcut if I am going to do a PHD after graduation. PHD, another 5 years, old goat I will be then. My god, shall I do it? I don’t like multi-choice question.
Also from last week I found accounting was quite interesting, and it was always happy to get the balance sheet balanced. So as an accountant it’s easy to feel satisfied, just let debit equal to credit. There is no need to talk to customer like sales, no need to work for solution like marketing, just make it equal, as simple as it, and I like it.
It was heavy last week, I talked to my father for 2 hours on the weekend through Skype. When I am older, I found I really enjoyed the pleasure to talk to my parents, even when they told me a small story from my childhood. The distance is sometimes so beautiful.
