These days I have been busy to death. I had planned to meet with some friends when I came back to Shenzhen. But it turned out that I could hardly squeeze the time. After moving to my cousin brother’s house, though he takes good care of me, i still feel kinda uncomfortable. After all, it is not my home. To begin with, his house is located on the ninth floor without elevators. After hearing this from his mouth, I almost passed out. Consequently, I have to climb to such a “skycraper” for sveral times a day, which can greatly exercise my body. Take yesterday for instance. I went out and back for several times, and had a meal with my senior middle school mate. Then I came back to the dorm again with a total of 5 times, 45 floors of climbing during the day. I was entirely exhausted to death.
I still have a wealth of stuff to buy before going abroad in these two days. As my cousin has to work in daytime, we can only go shopping at night. He strolled with me from Hua Qing Bei to Dong Men and bought a lot of things. Luckily, he is extremely familiar with this area, so we did not spend much time seeking a certain store. Now even though I am not living in Shenzhen University, I have to go there every day by metro or bus. It is really nasty!
The day before yesterday, I went to Pingan Bank for exchanging RMB for Euros, only to be told that the bank does not provide Euro cash for the moment. Therefore, I had to transfer all my money to the Bank of China to exchange Euros. However, Misfortune never comes alone. I had long thought that the accommodation fee could be cleared with cash in Dublin University. Yesterday I was told by my friend Shaojuan that it could not be paid with cash. Hence, I can only remit the money to the bank in Ireland. The total amount of accomodation fees is some 2800 Euros for the first semester and there is not enough money in my bankcard. So I had to make a call to my family this morning, asking them to transfer the money to me as soon as possible.
This afternoon after finishing all affairs in the Coastal City, I went back to the dorm and saw a message from Wenhan, telling me that our alumna who also studies in Ireland might have failed to help us book a room. You know, after we arrive at Ireland, the dormitaries in UCD will still be not available. So we have to live outside campus for several days. Therefore, we asked the alumna to help us book a room. But later she sent a message to Wenhan’s QQ, saying that we should book a room online first. Wenhan did not get online these days and not until today did she saw the message. Hearing the news, I almost fainted away again. It appears that we can no longer book a cheap room and have to bleed in our pocket. Again, misfortune never comes alone. I received a mail this afternoon from my school, asking me to confirm my personal information and select the courses in a website. But after logging into the web, I felt rather bewildered. Though there was some instruction telling me the steps, I still felt lost. Fortunately, the time granted for this procedure is ample, so I can still have time to study it carefully.
These days it was inconvenient for me to get online, so I had no time to reply to all friends and classmates who left me some messages. I have to apologize to you here. I also received a lot of emails from online friends in Bigear website, feeling both moved and guilty. They said that they had not read my article and translation on the website for a long time. I could only tell them that these days I was awfully busy and had no time and energy to do that for the moment.
I will leave from HK to Ireland on the afternoon of the day after tomorrow. I really hope that everything will go smoothly for me after I reach Ireland, though I know it is impossible. Today I reviewed the introduction of my courses and felt rather panic. It seems that every course is very difficult to pass. I did not learn forgein accounting before, nor have I fully remembered" classmates are people who have worked in the “Four Bigs” or multinationals. They have abundant work experience and can surely master the knowledge faster than me. All of a sudden, I came to realize that it is really both an opportunity and challege for me to choose this major. But I still hold that as long as I do my utmost, I can surely learn it well! After all, I have been looking forward to studying abroad for a long time. I will try my best!
