All I care is Oscar.


Earthquake, Protests, unhappiness surrounded this word in the last week. Finally, we can be relieved, even for a short while, to enjoy the Global oscar tomorrow night.

It’s quite a fruitful year for American film industry, some films received both good names and markets, particularly I enjoyed Inception and Social Network. Frankly, I’m not a big fan of Oscar, even I don’t care about best Cinematography, writing or whatever, I only know best picture. And my only concern is the most welcome film through out the year can’t win the best picture recently, it seems the taste of audience is far away from Academy now.

Among the 10 films nominated for the best picture (Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, 127 Hours, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit, Winter’s Bone), True Grit, The Fighter, Black Swan as well as The King’s Speech and The Social Network certainly have more chance to win. I read the story of 172 hours when I was in primary school, in a magazine called “Reader”. I really liked this touching story, though I haven’t seen the film, I know it’s really hard to film this monologue. However, not only film fans but anyone in the world knows there are only two films, Social Network and King’s Speech, in competition of Best Picture. Personally I prefer Social Network, as it’s more easygoing and down to earth; while King’s Speech, by whatever means, is trying to show its historical pride.

No matter who wins finally, we should give thanks to The King’s Speech tough, which came out late this year, for adding suspense to the atmosphere. I remembered two years ago, Slumdog Millionaire made beautiful British English repeating again and again in Kodak Theatre, is it the same in this year? Not sure so let’s wait and see.


New Year Wishes.


I nearly forgot I was behind the firewall in the beginning of 2011, and I should make up my New Year’s wishes today. Actually it will be a tough year for me, I would never think I can make it, but after this afternoon, when I finished 1 hour’s running in Sport, I was happy to see I have finished it on time and I hope all of my other New Year wishes could be as easy as this.

First, finish 10 units within this year. I will overload in the next semester and do one more unit in summer, so only 2 more units are left in 2012. I will target all units average distinction score, as a student, this should be primary.

Second, take LSAT and GMAT in this year, definitely very important for my future, lots of work to do though.

Third, attend Melbourne Marathon in October, at least a half marathon, depending on my training.

Fourth, drive to university for my lecture, and hopefully get a Australia driving licence by the end of this year. This should be the easiest task.

Fifth, arrange my time to travel to North America and Europe.

Sixth, guitar and tennis once another week.

I would not consider to list them before as most of them are not easy to achieve. however I know if I don’t try, I will never get them, at least today is a good start. 2011 is a special year for me, as it’s my last year before 30, what fruit can I get by the end of it, I’ll see.

No Worries.


It’s a long time since I went back to Oz, pretty busy everyday. I applied for one unit overload but it was refused by the administer, then I have to do that in the next semester. Good on your big hip, Miss.

Without overload, I have plenty of time in this semester for my LSAT preparation, can “impossible” change to “I’m possible”? I am waiting for the answer too.

The big news around the world recently was Mubarak’s resign, then Nobel Peace should be nominated to all Egyptians, as this is what the committee need all the time.

Well today is my first shopping day, I bought so many stuff from Coles. Thanks to the bookshop no one goes, there is an Asian grocery shop finally in Brandon Park recently opened, so no need to go to Clayton any more, yeah.

Today is also the date for the new residents moving in Roberts Hall, I had a very interesting story. In the Hall, two guys carried their fridge to the room, I gave them the day. When they passed by, I was expecting them to say thank you, but one of them said “no worries”. I was not sure if he was talking to me or his mate, but I replied no worries naturally. By the time I spoke out, all of us said No Worries, and I was like an idiot standing there without any words. Were they supposed to say thank you? If yes, what does No Worries mean then?

Hmmm, it is not the time to think too much here. Turn my fan on, and I need to prepare my dinner now.
