More Study, Less Blogging

School started on Monday and I'm already feeling so overwhemled by the amount of info I need to absorb.
I knew taking the TESL course would be difficult, but didn't think it would be that intensive. So many readings and so many things to remember and re-learn, namely grammer.
I was so embarassed during participation in my observation time because I didn't remember what "parts of speech" were and how to explain them!
When you've grown up learning English all or most of your life, you don't stop to think "A preposition is the words used to describe yadda yadda yadda.." I say that because I still can't remember it!! It just comes naturally to you and who really stops to think about what is what in a sentence?

With that said, I probably will be putting my updating to maybe 1-2 times a month. It's difficult to deal with this course especially when I have to cram a lot of info into 6 weeks.

On with the post...
A while back, I entered Katie's (GirlAboutTown88) collection contest and won! Yippee! This girl is super generous. She jammed packed the box with lots more stuff that wasn't even included in the prize pack =D Quite exciting for me because I've NEVER used MAC in my life! I don't think using eyeliner and the eyeshadow 2-3 times really counts haha. She sent me 2 pretty MAC lipsticks one including the LE Hello Kitty. Thankq Katie!!!!

Oh, she also slipped in a box of mini food. I let out a little scream when I saw it. This is super cute. I've never seen this set before, it's called "Special cakes for me" and you can probably guess it's a cake mini food set.
It's super cute and detailed! I immediately made room in my display case for it =) Thank you again Katie!

And before I head to do some more reading.. I thought I'd show you a picture of one of my cats sleeping with his little tooth sticking out =p His name is Wasabi, but I like to called him "bum bum" because he also sticks his tail and butt in the air whenever he sees someone.

That's it for now, hope to be back blogging some more soon, but for now I'm just gonna lurk.

OMG, mini-cake!!!!!!

I can't understand why you like mini-food so much Millie - if I had them displayed around me as you do, I'd have cravings like, every minute. I have too many/frequent cravings as it is!! xD

HT said...

Awwwww what a cute kitty! I love cats. :) Good luck on your TESL stuff! I know it's tough; I had to complete a similar course before I taught English in China!

Oh, grammar! Well, I remember my English lessons back at my school time, and maybe I'm weird, but I really liked grammar lessons, haha... and it seems I have to look up some English grammar rules again, just to refresh my knowledge (since I notice myself making some mistaktes, hehe...).

Congrats on winning such a gorgeous prize! The goodies are awesome!

Grammar is tricky business. My Director is an old Eaton boy and so his grammar is point perfect! He bought me this comical yet very helpful book on punctuation that you may like? Here is an excerpt:

"A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.
'Why?' asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

'Well, I'm a panda', he says, at the door. 'Look it up.'

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. 'Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

I do apologise if I have bored you stupid. :(

Woahhh! Such big package!
Congrats!! I remember that contest!
Awe! Your kitty is so cute! Sweet sleep :P

paperdollrevenge said...

LMAO at what Yasumi wrote! I love it.

I know exactly what you mean about grammar and being a native English speaker. My grammar is not impeccable, though I'd really like it to be! Good luck on your course, sounds very intensive!

And wow, that's a lot of love in a box! I can't believe you never used MAC before?!'re Canadian! =P jk

Wasabi is cute!

Hi new to your bloggy here =^~^=
Was taking a peek at the mega load you won! I really want to win some of these makeup giveaways; I've never tried many of the brands I see as a novice in the beauty blogging world.

Also, I had a number of friends who taught English Abroad (one who went to Seoul too) and they always have a blast! A lot of work, but a blast. I was applying to teach in Japan and Europe until I ended up married in Europe! A Hong Kong born citizen who became a U.S. citizen and now in her third country, Austria!

Study hard and travel! =^~^=

Back in grade school and up to high school, I was pro with English grammar, really, I was so proud of myself lol (English wasn't my first language). But when I hit college, my brain whacked out or something; can't recall or use proper English/grammar anymore. What's a preposition or an object or whatever. xD I guess this is what science textbooks does to you. Nobody cares about proper english in these departments. :S

The mini food cake is sooo adorable! And awww your kitty <3

Mona said...

OMG the way your cat sleeps is way too cute!

Yumeko said...
