I found this funny “monthly glance” survey to put in one’s journal. Think it’s pretty cool, so here goes.
This month was: August
Season: Summer… or it was supposed to be summer.
Weather: the wettest month ever, if one can believe the weather channel.
Holidays: summer holiday
What is blooming?: Uhm…I’m not an expert on flowers. We’re having our first apples right now.
My month was productive in: far too deep thoughts.
My month was unproductive in: uhm, I don’t know. I even managed to do some school work. Maybe, unfortunately, it lacked an “end of summer conclusion”, but if we have to say summer ends with some conclusion, the summer of 2002 ended at November 4.
Interesting notes on the month: Let the sun shine, let the sun shine! I didn’t get my sunglasses for free!
Favourite moment: August 2, when the second week of the rehab programme started.
Social interactions: at the summer programme. Oh and of course with Sevinc when I visited her. Nearly forgot that.
Favourite conversation: the one on Thursday August 5 with a current student at the rehab centre. Such an interesting discussion and that person had such interesting ideas about some of these damn blindness issues.
Favourite social gathering: I had no real social gatherings this month.
New places visited: hmm, Sevinc’s house. The rehab centre isn’t really new for I already knew it.
I accomplished: to survive the first week of school, lol. Uhm, what else can I think of?
Frustrations: these damn stupid ladies of course… I have to send them to the nearest star. Dad says it’s five light-years away, so it’ll take them at least ten years to return… by then I’ll long live in the States and they can’t find me. Oh and the stupid project on British Idealism.
Fortunately, none of the other seniors is particularly far with it.
I talked to: as I said, to Sevinc, and to the folks at the rehab centre. Oh and Mr. De B. couldn’t miss me so I talked with him this afternoon.
I learnt: to fry chips, I think some school stuff (what, exactly?) and uhm, what else?
Things to remember: how cool the summer programme was? Oh and some interesting things the folks said.
Past moments I remembered: the summer of 1998, the summer of 1999, August 2001, 9th grade, the summer of 2002, the summer fo 2003, last March, April 11
Favourite meal: still has to be chicken wings, rice and chicory.
Reading: a whole lot of Bible studies and the messages on my favourite forums, my Latin texts, and Tuttle’s book in self-esteem and blindness (yeah, still not finished)..
Listening: nothing interesting I think.
Watching: the usual TV programmes.
Movies I saw: didn’t see any. Oh well, of course, we watched part of the movie of “Lady Chatterley’s lover” in English class.
I finished: My summer holiday.
I liked: the visit to Sevinc’s and my new, ultra-relaxing schedule.
I disliked: the project on British Idealism and that damn current blindness stuff issues museum.
I loved: nothing or no-one in particular.
I wish: I still had a holiday!!!
