I made some plans last Monday, and now it’s time to check out if I did a good job on the first week of the challenge!
(1) Go to bed before 11 p.m.
I didn’t do a good job. Actually I hit the sack over 11:00 p.m., like 11:15 p.m. and 11:05 p.m. on the first two days.
Unfortunately, yesterday my roommates and I gossiped until 1:00 a.m… Crazy!
I only made it on two days last week… Anyway, More power to me~~~
It’s a flexible plan. I did more often than before.
Actually I did it every day, though it wasn’t a long walk. My dorm room is virtually a stone’s throw from the nearest canteen…
But sometimes I went to a canteen farther away to pig out my favorite dish —— 酸汤牛肉 (suan tang niu rou), which is a tangy, flavorful soup with beef plus different vegetables you pick! It’s out of the world!
2. Learning English
(1). Reading The Great Gatsby every day.
I’m content with my performance on this plan. I read the book every day, but I think I should have reviewed it more —— there’re so many great expressions in the novel.
I did it every day. Give myself a pat on the back!
I reviewed my notes on the app Evernote when waiting in line. But I don’t know if I spent 15 minutes reviewing every day.
3. My essay
When an assignment isn’t given by myself, I have no motivation to do it… I’m sorry…
I made no headway in writing my paper, but I read a book of literary theory by Bakhtin, which was introduced on my optional class. Bakhtin really delved deep into dostoyevsky’s classics!
4. Reading and writing
(1). Read Chinese Literature for thirty minutes every day.
I fail to read books for 30 minutes every day, but I read it from time to time.
I’m writing this post to keep this resolution! If you’re interested in my thoughts on the one-week practice, check out my reflection part below!
By the way, I went back home last week, and enjoyed an exhibition of Dong Qichang in Shang hai!
