Media diary one

Posted: October 11, 2010 in Uncategorized

I’m not really a diary person. The only related memory I have is the one in primary school, where we were “gently suggested” by our teacher to write a diary every day (of course she’s gonna grade it), because it is an effective way to improve writing skill. And as you can imagine, in primary school, the last thing we naïve children care about is writing skill. So I kind of doodling around, for about one entire year, without having my writing skill improved. If I knew I was going to write diaries 10 years later and show it to my teacher and classmates, the situation would be totally different.

I don’t have a television in my apartment, sadly, so my frequently-used media are computer, books, and mobile phone. Today, around 8:00, I logged on Windows Live Messenger and started to continue writing my project on the laptop. On the Windows Live Messenger interface, it demonstrated that I have 0 unopened inbox email, so I didn’t bother logging in my Hotmail account. I was working on the section called situation analysis, which requires a lot information searching and data finding. I almost spent the entire morning on Google, looking for information on nation rankings and city competitiveness. Around 11:00, I felt I have worked hard and deserve a break, so I opened PPS, a wonderful computer program that provides all kinds of online movies, TV shows, animations, and dramas. I was so surprised (in a good way) when I saw the newly-released movie version of “Detective Conan”, a Japanese animation which I have been watching since junior high school. I stared watching right away. Although the plot was so-so, not very “detective” but rather a narrative story, it was always good to see some familiar faces from the childhood.

In the afternoon, I continued my searching on Google till 16:00. Then I checked the UF webmail, downloading two reading materials for tomorrow’s class. After dinner, my friends called me to confess about her unfruitful weekend. She said she should have been writing papers but ended up watching YouTube videos for the past two days. Later that night, I watched the first episode of Downton Abbey, a British TV drama based on the writing of Julian Fellowes. During the show, I chatted with my mom on Windows Live Messenger, learning that the osmanthus season has arrived in my home town. That’s my favorite flower, and the smell is just intoxicating. Alright, now I’m homesick.

  1. Your link to Julian Fellowes does not work, and your poster of Detective Conan is a little bit TOO LARGE. I had to look up “osmanthus”; apparently we have one variety of this flower here in the U.S., but only in the southeast.

    I am not so surprised that many students do not have a TV in their apartment — we have already learned this from a lot of the American undergraduate students. Sometimes they have a TV if the cable is free in their apartment complex, but usually, they just use their laptop.

  2. There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think you made some good points in Features also.
    Keep working ,great job!

  3. Of course, what a great site and informative posts, I will add backlink – bookmark this site? Regards,
