    Hello Squirrel95,

    You are welcomesmiley - smiley
    Haha, yeah. I think the exotic culture is all interesting. And about the language, I think you are right. The Chinese language is really hard for foreigner.
    Really? In fact, I think the English orthography is hard enough for me.

    Hi Bright!
    Nice to see you againsmiley - smiley
    I think English orthography is nothing compared to Polish! smiley - winkeye
    Even we may have some problems in that. Some words are not to pronounce by foreigners. Hard language but pretty countrysmiley - winkeye China too, of course! I think in Poland we've beauty nature, incredible setting, wildlife parks and countryside... I live in the south of Poland where there're mountains. One of the best known spots in Poland are our lakes that were on track to be one of the 7 world's wonders. It didn't get succeed but people still come there to take a break for example on holidays. I've never been there, but I always used to go to our seaside. It's great but I must say the water in our sea is a bit cool... smiley - winkeye
    And what about Your country?
    See you!

    Hello Bright,

    Oh, I’m sorry for my late reply. Because the middle examination is coming which due on May 9, 10 and 11 and the science exhibition just has done on latest Wednesday.

    Ha, ha. Our project gets great point. We won the third prize which we call it “佳作”. smiley - smiley The first prize we call “特優” and the second prize we call “優等”. This news really encourage us that what we have done can honor our school. Our school sometimes is looked down by some famous school’s students. Since to it, we decide to honor our school by ourselves.

    It’s about half year for us to the university entrance examination. I must get good grades at that time in order to go to the college which I want. I also wish that you can get a great job when you graduate from college. smiley - smiley

    Have a nice day.
    See you

    Hello Bright,

    Yes, it's hot now. But the weather is changeable, few days ago it was cold and today it's hot again. I like that weather.

    Well, yes I had some good time at home, but now I came back at University. Actually nowadays we don't have many classes, it's getting to the end of the semester. Tomorrow I'm going for a trip with my friends from University. I hope we will have nice weather.

    Yes, I know that handwriting is writing by hand. But I wasn't sure what you mean saying practicing it. So it must be difficult to write Chinese calligraphy.
    And during your classes, how do you write your notes? Not by hand?

    Best wishes
    see you

    Hello Ania,

    So sorry for my late reply. Yes, really late.

    Well, it often rains recently. I was learning swimming. But because of the weather, I stopped it now. Can you swim?

    Wow, how about your trip? It's fun, right? Actually, I went to the downtown to meet my friends last week. We did't meet for a long time.

    In the classes, we take the notes by hand, by the pen. I said that practice it, means to learn how to write a Chinese character that is beautiful and legible. Yes, it's difficult. I afraid I can't carry on practicing.

    We will end this semester before July 7th. How about you?

    Hello Bright,

    That's all right. You don't need to say sorry for your late reply. As you can see I'm also not good in it last time. And I'm sorry as well.
    I was very busy, that's why I couldn't come here.
    So I suppose you already have holidays, am I right? It was the end of my semester, that's why I was so busy, because of the exams and so on. Now I finished my examination session, but still I'm in front of the final exam, which is the thesis defense. It will be in the end of June. Do you have any plans for your holidays? Are you at home now?

    Well, with regards to my trip. It was great. Despite we didn't have nice weather during all time, it was worth to go, really. I love mountains, and all that amazing vies which mountains can give yousmiley - smiley Do you like it? I'm not sure, if the place where you live is hilly or lowland?

    Best wishes

    Hello Ania,

    Haha, all right. smiley - smiley

    No, I still at school now. I will finish all of the exams before July 6th. So both of us are getting busy. I have 4 exams this week. I just finished one this morning.
    About the holiday, I still don't have a plan in detail. But I want to do something. 1st, I want to stay at school for 2 weeks in holiday. 2nd, I want to travel with my friend. 3rd, read some books. I have the booklist already. What about you? What will you do in this holiday?

    That's great that you enjoyed your journey. Yes, I like mountains and hills. But I don't climb mountains for about 3years. Maybe I will climb mountains in holiday.smiley - smiley

    Hello Bright,

    How are you nowadays? I suppose you're still busy with your exams, as it is the end of your semester. Am I right? I hope everything with it is great.
    Yes, as you said both of as were busy last time, actually we still are I guesssmiley - winkeye I'm at home now. I already finished my thesis and passed the exams. But now I'm in front of the final exam, which is the thesis defense. I will have that exam next week. When I pass it, I will get the diploma.

    I think that's good that you have such tips for yourself what would you like to do during your holidays. It will help you in organizing your time. Do you know where you would like to go for a trip? Or maybe just straight ahead? smiley - smiley What kind of books do you like to read?

    When it comes to my holidays, I'm not sure what I will do exactly. Maybe I will work in the same place where I was working during last holidays. I don't know yet.
    I love mountains. There's always an amazing view. I also would like to go somewhere in my holidays. Maybe I will go for some trip.smiley - smiley

    Hello Ania,

    I am good these days. How about you? Yes, you are right. I am still busy for my exams. The last exam is on July 5th. Then I will begin my holiday. Thankssmiley - smiley

    Wow, I guess you have passed the thesis defense. Tell me I am rightsmiley - smiley

    Where would I like to go? Infact, I haven't thought about it. I will think about it after I finish the exams. I like psychology books, philosophy books. Oh, you know what, I tried to read novels recently. I have read a novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. The author is Betty Smith.

    So do you have any idea about your holiday now?

    Hello Bright,

    I'm fine thanks, I hope you're still good as well. I suppose you're after all your exams and you have holidays now. Am I right?

    Yes I can tell you that good news, I passed my thesis defense. Now I'm just waiting to get the diploma. I'm also going to apply for my next studies (with Master degree).

    Last days we had and still have a real heat here. Weather like in hot countries, it was around 35 degrees.

    You know what, yesterday I finished to read a book ' Betrayal in death' (this is the original title), the author is J.D. Robb ( Nora Roberts). I liked that book, it is a crime story with some thread of love story.

    Well, actually I don't have any idea about my holidays besides that I'm working nowadays. Yes, it would be great to share our tripsmiley - smiley, do you have already any idea?

    Best wishes

    Hello Ania,

    Thank yousmiley - smiley Yes, I have holidays now. But I still in school. I will go home next week.

    Congradulations! That's so good. So what will you do in the next semester?

    It's really hot. Some times I hate summer. You know, heat and the mosquitos. But I enjoy swimmingsmiley - smiley It's fun.

    Sounds great. I found it in the internet and I read the brief introduction of this book. Have you read any English original books? I have tried. But it seems hard for me. There are too many new words.

    No, I still have no idea about the trip. You know what, in China, travel in holidays is not a good idea. Because you can see nothing but crowd.

    Hello Bright,

    I'm so sorry for my late reply. How are you? What are you doing nowaday? Do you enjoy your holidays and free time?

    I'm working nowadays in the hotel. At the weekend I was on a party, the wedding and then party. Last time I'm also reading a lot. I mentioned you about that book in my previous message, there are many books written by that woman, that books have common plot and are very addictive smiley - winkeye
    Unfortunately I haven't gone for any trip so far. And what about you? Did you go somewhere?

    Thank you. I already have the decision that I applied for that studies. What I will do in next semester? Well, I don't know the schedule now, but I guess it will be similar to the previous semesters. Probably subjects will be a bit different. Anyway I will see.

    Well, one time I tried to read book in English, but I didn't finished it. I think it was the same as you said, there were too many words that I didn't know and it was hard to read, so finally I gave it up.

    Yes, I can imagine the crowd you mentioned. China is a big country with a big population and if you add to that tourists there must be an enormous crowd.

    Hello Ania,

    I'm sorry, too.

    I am good. Thank you!smiley - smiley I am helping in my father's flower shop nowadays. My holidays? Haha, I am not sure. It's the last summer holiday in my life.
    How about you?

    Your holidays seems very wonderfulsmiley - smiley You must enjoy your holidays.
    Yes, I remember. Haha, it's really lucky to find books that you can't stop to read. These days I read 2 books. The first book is Tuesday with Morrie. I have told you that movie. It's also a book. The author is Mitch Albom. It's about the life.
    And the second book is The Road Less Traveled. The author is M.Scott Peck. This book is about the mental maturity. It's not easy to read, so I just read the first part. There are 4 parts in the book. So the first part is about self-discipline. It teach us to postpone the gratification, to be responsible, to respect the truth and to keep balance.

    Well, me too. I didn't go anywhere.

    I will go to school next Friday. How about you?

    Hi Bright,

    Why did you say that this are your last summer holidays in your life? What do you mean?

    I'm fine too, thanks. Actually there's nothing special in my holidays, I'm working during it. Unfortunately I didn't go for any trip, but maybe I will have a chance yet. I hope so smiley - smiley

    You're right about the books. It's great to find something you can't stop reading. Actually I don't know how many books I've read this summer. I didn't count them.

    Oh really? So I suppose you already are in school nowadays right? I still have about a month free. My holidays last till the end of September. I'm going to come back to my Uni from October.

    How are your classes now? Do you like it? Aren't you bored?

    I am so sorry. I should have replied.

    Yes, it's my last year at college. I really want to have one more year. I still have something that want to do.

    I didn't travel with my classmates. But I had a trip with some of my friends. They are all my best friends. We had a great time.

    Well I have already had my driving test. Unfortunately, I failed the test. I think I am too nervous. Anyway, I have to have the another test next month. I believe I can pass the test this time.

    I want to ask you a question. What do you think about Love? I mean boy and girl. Have you fallen in love?

    Hello Bright,

    I'm also so sorry that I didn't reply for a long time. Actually I'm still busy last time and I don't come here often.
    Besides my classes at Uni I'm working a bit in Avon Company, it's a cosmetic company, have you ever heard about it? It's known all over the world.

    Now I'm at home, I came here for Christmas. Tomorrow we have Christmas Eve. Unfortunately we don't have much snow. Tomorrow it's going to rain unfortunately...

    And How are you nowadays? How is it at your college? And what with your driving test? I hope everything is all right. I believe you passed the test and you enjoy driving smiley - smiley

    Well you asked me about love. I think it's very important part of our life. It makes our life more important when we have someone to love and when we feel loved by someone. And what you think about that?

    Best wishes and see you
