My First French Class

Well, last Saturday, I went to my first french class. Seriously, my parents force me to learn this language because they think that we might migrate to France in 5 years time. However, I still felt excited because I want never exactly learned a new language before.(Excluding learning Japanese from watching excessive japanese animation(anime))

I left my house at 9.30, giving myself enough time to reach my class. My class starts from 10.00am-1.00pm. So I took the train...never did I thought the train would be late. The train was delayed!
In the end, I was 15 minutes late. In my head, I was thinking,"Oh shit! How can I be late for my first class?!"

When I reached the Language School, a lady was kind enough to show me to my class and she gave me my textbook.



I never knew the Language School was this big. I just expected it to be small. I never knew that this School is 3 storey high. You actually have to climb up the stairs. This school even has a mini library. That's pretty cool~!




Luckily, the teacher was also late due to the delayed train. I entered the class to find 7 other people sitting in the class, waiting for the teacher. So, I quickly sat in the last seat available.
Lesson 1 : Don't be late!
Well, being late isn't polite and all the best seats will be taken if you're late.

Guess what, I am the youngest one there. Everyone else is 18-35 years old. I'm the ONLY 16 year old person! It just feels so odd to be the youngest one there.

BTW, my french class is in Room 9~!



This is my classroom for my french class. So this is Room 9... Like it?

Anyway, sitting in the far corner was hard because the teacher stands there as he writes he french stuff. I can't copy if my view is blocked and he teaches very fast. Honestly, I think that french is a little hard due to the pronounciation. It's different and it reminds me of phonics. It's like learning phonics all over again. PS : I hate phonics and I suck at it. Other than that, it's fine.
Lesson 2 : French is like learning phonics.

The french teacher is telling us not to translate french into english. He wants us to think french and be french. Yea, I get that...BUT what am I going to translate french into? Does he wants me to translate french into french?? BUT I don't know french...that's why I'm in french class...duh...
He should chill and let us translate french in english so that we understand french. Then, later, when we understand french, he can make us be or think french.

Anyway, in my entire french class, there are 2 people who understands french super fast. However, I'm pretty bad at french right now. The teacher keeps correcting me & focusing on me. I hate being focused at!
Finally, class is OVER~!!

I took a picture of the seats when everyone left. I sit next to that girl. My seat is on right end of the picture. That green/brown bag in that seat is mine


Here's my teacher's desk. In 3 hours, he managed to teach us some greetings, intoduction, verbs and numbers up to 20.


My French Textbook. Not exactly the best looking textbook, right?

I hope I get to really understand the essence of french. Anyway, next week is going to be interesting because I have forgotten everything.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
WHY?
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.



But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
