  On Thursday, during the school time, my friends and I had a problem with the friendship. Therefore, it passed very quickly by having a hard time. During the reading class, I took the reading comprehension test which was very hard for me. After the school, I straightly went to my home by riding the bus by myself. When I was arrived, I was so stressed because I realized that I have a lot of things to do for this month. Therefore, I opened my laptop and started my works. After the work, I made the poster which was about my profile from the mandarin class. I put many pictures and decorated because I felt like I had to make the poster. When I was done, my mom came at 7 P.M. and ate the dinner with my mom which was my favorite. After the supper, my mom said she will go to a business trip with other professors early in the morning to Busan and will come back on late Saturday. Therefore, I helped her to pack things up and I even lend her my cute bag because she asked me to borrow. I chatted with my friends about a lot of things going on these days. And I did my favorite thing which was to sleep!

  On Wednesday, I was not feeling well because I was too tired and worried about a lot of things. When I was walking, I saw that my apartment was colored with the weird pink color which was very odd. I wanted to change it again because I wanted it to look very gentle and graceful. Therefore, I was very disappointed with the color. When I came to my home, as a usual, I got a lot of pressures because of homework, tests, and projects I had so far. And I was so sleepy during the night time as a usual.

  On Tuesday, I learned that I can find the joyfulness among the toughness and hardness in my life. When my daddy came at night, I told my daddy that I am having such a hard time these days. Then suddenly, he told me to find the happiness among them because, because of the toughness of life, your life is more fun exciting. Therefore, I realized the important lesson in my life.

2007/11/29/Thursday_Reading Blog_The Giraffe and the Pelly, and Me.

· What happened??     Long time ago, there was a queer old building which was very close to the main character, Billy’s house. One morning, Billy saw the letters saying “for sale” on the wall. He was curious who will buy that queer building so he went there for every single day. One day, the letters saying “for sale” was gone and he was very curious about who moved there. When Billy was waiting for someone to come out of the building, suddenly, the bathtub was dropping and crashing on the floor which came out from the second floor’s window of the building. And also later on, a lot of things were coming out of the same place. Therefore, Billy asked who are there but there was no answer with the silence. So he went to his house and decided to come again in the morning.  Next morning, as his decision, he came in the morning to the queer old building. And he first recognized that the door of the building has changed to the red color and it was very high that he could not even see the top of the door. Also, there was a sigh saying, “The Ladderless Window-Cleaning.” Suddenly, one pretty giraffe, tough pelican, and silly monkey came out of the window by showing their faces. All of them were looking at Billy with the weird expressions. Soon, a pretty giraffe asked pelican to take Billy to up high so that the giraffe could see. Therefore, the pelican went down to take Billy. The pelican opened its mouse to come in but Billy could not trust Pelican because it might harm Billy with its beak. Therefore, he refused to go there; therefore, the pelican showed the magic with its beak which the beak was bendable. Billy was persuaded by them and went up high where giraffe is with the pelican. When Billy arrived, the pretty giraffe asked Billy to help to earn much money, because they had to eat something but they did not have much money to get some foods which they needed. Suddenly, the chauffeur came to the building where Billy and other animals were and started to read the letter from the duke of Hampshire which was asking the animals to come to his house to clean hundred of windows. They were so happy to get the letters and went to the place where the duke lived with Billy’s instruction. When they were arrived, the shouting sound was coming out of the garden who was the duke. He was asking his servant to get a cherry which was at the top of the tree that the servant could not reach it. Therefore, the animals and Billy went there and tried to take those cherries. The duke was so upset that they would eat his cherries therefore he asked his servant to get a gun. The animals did best to get all of the cherries to give it to the duke and they made it! The duke was very surprised and asked them who they are. Therefore, they told the duke that they are the window cleaner and started to clean the windows of the duke’s. 

·  What will happen next??  I think the animals and Billy will finish their work perfectly and quickly. Therefore, they got to have their own foods. Suddenly, they will become famous that they can have enough food for themselves. And also I think they will give much money to Billy who helped them a lot.

·  How did you feel about the parts you have just read??    As I was reading this book, I learned that they were very cooperative and warm hearted to everyone. And also it was a fantastic idea to use giraffe as a ladder, pelican as a can where they could put water in it, and the monkey as an animal which cleans the window. And they looked very good to me because they always do their best to earn much money. 

·  Might want to ask the writer or the characters in the story??? I want to ask to the author of this story whose name is Roald Dahl. The question is, how can you write the story very creatively and excitingly through the plots and the characters? I have written few stories, but it was very hard to make it as a perfect product. I am so curious about the answer.

  On Wednesday, the schedule was very different from what we did before and had a great time during the chapel time. I also had a student council meeting during the advisory period to make a lot of events in GSIS. After the school, while I was coming from the school by myself, I saw some people who were painting the wall of apartment with the pink color which was very weird. When I arrived at my home, I opened my laptop and did some of my homework. I also chatted with my friends and talked about the tests. My mom came at home at 7:30 P.M. so I ate the supper late on Wednesday. After I ate dinner, my mom studied about the Christian which was her homework and I studied for the reading comprehension test on Thursday. I slept at 11 P.M. and woke up at 5 A.M. in the morning to study.

  On Tuesday, like the other days, I had such a busy time in my school with a lot of homework, projects, and tests. After the school I went to the place where we can drink and eat which was called “Vitamin,” which made me to relax more and I had a good conversation with Meena which made me to have less stresses. When I was walking to my home, it was very cold outside that made me to tremble. I was having a normal time by studying and chatting with my friends and I was very tired that I slept at 11 P.M. with the full of happiness.

  On Monday, when I was in the Lotte World, I learned that the important thing which I knew but realized strongly this time. The lesson was that friends are very important in my life that makes my life enjoyable. Because when I played with Meena, Rachel and Eugenia in the Lotte World, they made me to have less stresses and I had a more joyful time because of them. I am very thankful to have a lot of friends in my life which I did not really care before but affects a lot to me especially in these days.

  On Tuesday, I woke up late in the morning because I went to the Lotte World on Monday which made me to have less energy. After the normal classes, I had such a fun and helpful after school activity with Ms. Bae. We learned and went through about Mrs. Flowers because we have test on Thursday. When it was done, Meena and I decided to go to “Vitamin,” where we can eat cake, waffle, and drinks. We ate and drank a lot because we were very hungry. We talked about what is going on these days and had a good conversation. We were finally separated at 6 P.M. and I arrived at my home very soon. When I arrived, I did my homework which was very little. But I had to study for the spelling test but did not have much time.  I ate the supper with my daddy at 7 P.M. without mom because my mom was working at her university. My family members watched drama which calls “Iesan”at 10 P.M. which is my family’s favorite drama. And I slept at 12 P.M. which is earlier because I could not handle my tiredness.

  On Monday, I was very happy to go to the Lotte World with my friends which I liked it much. I threw almost all of my stresses there by screaming. I also felt that the time was going very quickly because I was having such a good time. And also every single minute was very precious for me. When I arrived at my home, I was so sleepy because I walked and screamed a lot there in the Lotte World. I did some of my homework which I had not finished. And rest of my day passed without any troubles. I also was waiting to go to the school but worried about the school because I will be having a lot of homework from Tuesday.

  On Sunday, I learned that I should be the prayer of God. In the past, I did not pray a lot. But in the church, I learned about the importance of the prayer. Therefore, I decided to pray a lot at least six times per day. I also realized that I should be communicating more with God because he will give me a lot of knowledge and love.

  On Monday, in the morning, I woke up early to prepare to go to the Lotte World with Meena, Eugenia, and Rachel. At 8 A.M., Meena’s daddy came in front of my apartment to take Eugenia and me and then he took Rachel up. We arrived at the Lotte World at around 10 A.M. because the traffic was jammed. When we arrived there, to buy a ticket, we saw Chris Cha, and Alvin Choi who were buying a ticket. When we first got there, we put our coats and umbrellas in the place where we could put things in by putting 1,000 won in. We rode a lot of fun things with the full of excitement and I enjoyed a lot. There were a lot of people who were waiting to ride the most excite one. We also congratulated Rachel for her birthday by giving the presents to them. After having a good time by riding and taking a photo together, we left the Lotte World at 4:30 P.M. because I had to go home earlier. We rode the 1112 bus to go to Suwon where all of us live. We arrived at 6 P.M. which was not that late. When I came to my home, I did my last homework and had a great time with my family. I also watched the drama called “Iesan”with my family. And I was so sleepy that I slept at 12:30 A.M. in the morning.

  On Sunday, I had a great time in the church because I heard such knowledgeable words from our pastor which will be very helpful for us through the lifetime. Sunday was also a busy day by going to grand parents’ house. I was so thankful to them because they made a lot of kimchi for us. But also I was so happy because kimchi is my favorite food and it was very delicious! When we came back to our home, I was so happy because I could relax the most. I ate the supper a lot because of the new kimchi and had a great time with my family members.

  On Saturday, I learned that everything needs the effort of mine because whenever I play clarinet, if I do not put all of my effort in it, the song sounds very heavy and dull. But when I put all of my efforts and accents in it, the song becomes very light and joyful. Even though I am doing the little thing, I should put all of my effort which is my current goal.

  On Sunday, I woke up earlier in the morning because I had to go to the church which was in Seoul where my parents go. My family members were preparing to go to the church and we got there at the exact time. My family members and I listened what the pastor was telling us, sang the gospel, read the book, and prayed hard to God. When the church ended, we arrived at our grand parents’ house to get a kimchi from them. We bought some fruits to grand parents and ate the lunch together. It was so delicious because my grandmother made for my family. And also there were a lot of loves in it. We removed much kimchi from one dish to another. Suddenly, uncle came, so my daddy, grandfather and uncle talked together for much time. After few hours, we left our grand parents’ house and arrived at the place where I could change my contact lenses, because I had to change my lenses for every six weeks. Then, finally, we arrived at our lovely home. I listened to the music and finished homework from my daddy which was to solve some math problems. I also exercised with my parents and slept at 12:30 A.M. in the morning.

  On Saturday, in the morning, I woke up late. At that time I felt that I need an alarm which would make me to wake up early in the morning. I spent almost whole noon time by relaxing myself from a lot of pressure of studying. I think just because I was resting, could feel that the time was passing very quickly that made me very sad. When I arrived at the place where I practiced an orchestra, I was very tired. But when I was actually practicing the clarinet, I got much power and did my best which is my goal! When I was playing a game with my parents which’s purpose was to exercise, I thought that I need to exercise more in these days.

  On Friday, when I had such a bad situation which made me to go to the police office, I learned that I should be aware of myself and ourselves when we go out to play especially in Seoul where various people live. And also, I learned that I should try to avoid to go out during the night time because there are a lot of dangerous people in the world who are active during the night time.

  On Saturday, because it was a holiday and I was very tired by staying in the police office, I woke up late in the morning. When I woke up, I ate the breakfast with my mommy. My daddy was gone to work. I watched television and played the game. Also I did some of my homework. I enjoyed Saturday because I could do whatever I wanted to do. At 5 o’ clock in the afternoon, I ate the dinner which was very early but I had to because I had an orchestra practice at 6:20 P.M. My mom drove me to the place where I practice and I arrived there at the exact time. I met my friends and teacher. I prepared my clarinet, music and the stand which make me able to see the music. I practiced it for about three hours and had such a good time. After that, my daddy came and took me to our home. When I arrived at my home, I downloaded the mini game in my cell phone because my friend told me that it is such a fun game to play. I was able to download and played it for a while. After that, my mom and dad suggested me to play game together which was very good for our health. The only thing we do for the game was doing a rock-scissor-paper and the person who lost had to do some exercises in front of others so that we can exercise. And I slept at 1 A.M. by watching television which made me very tired.

  On Friday, I had such a good but horrible, and fearful day. I had fun time when I was in a school because it was a half day and there were only three classes to attend. After it, I had to ride the bus to go to the Lotte World in Seoul. While I was going, I dreamed about my old friends how will they look like because we have not seen each other for long time. When I met them I was so happy to meet them and see them again. After an exciting time, the fearful and horrible time was waiting for my friends and me. When we were waiting for the bus to go to our home at 8 P.M., one wired, strange and dangerous man who was drunken hit my friend with the umbrella. Therefore, we were so fearful and irritated because my friend got hurt. Some people who saw that situation called the police and I was very impressed and thankful to them because even though they have their schedule, they spent much time for us and one of them gave us 10,000 won to buy a medicine. I was almost crying because of their kindness. When we went to the police office and waited for my friend, I was so afraid and scared because there were a lot of people who were arrested and coming in to the police office. When everything was done and my friend went to the hospital, I felt sorry for my friend and while I was going to my home, I was very sleepy because it was about one A.M. in the morning.

  On Thursday, when I was watching the little chick coming out of its egg, I was so surprised. And I learned that everything in the world should be cared and think that each one of them is very precious. Also I learned that I have to be thankful to God because everything in the world is in the order which made me to be here right now.

  On Friday, I had such a fun time but in the other hand; I had a fearful and frustrating day. In the morning, I wake up earlier and went to the school. It was a half day so the classes were all shorten. I also saw the little chicks in Mr. MacRaild’s room. They were so cute and little. After the school, I went to my home to be ready to go to Lotte World with my old friends together. We have not seen each other for long time so I was dreamed of it. It took about an hour to go to the place where we decided to meet. When I arrived there, I called my friends and I met all of the girls and boys from my old school. Even though it was raining and had a gloomy sky, we had such a fun time in the Lotte World by riding many things and talking each other. After we separated from boys and girls, girls went to the Kyobo Stationery where we could by the books and stationeries which were very attractive. We had such a fun time by buying and window shopping together. At the last, we had to go to the Kang Nam station because there was the bus station which led us to go to each one’s house. While we were waiting, we talked together a lot of things which are going on these days. Suddenly, one old man right next to us hit one of my friends who’s name is Hee Jung with the umbrella. We did not know why did he hit my friend but I assume that he was drunken. Hee Jung started to cry and got a wound on her nose which was serious. And her nose was not in a right place, it was in a slightly different place where it was supposed to be. Therefore, the people who saw that situation were keeping on asking him to apologize to my friend with the anger. But he did not do that and kept saying weird things which were not related to that situation. Therefore, people who helped us called the police and the police came soon. When the police came, the man who hit my friend was being very rude by smoking in front of the policemen. My friends and I were so angry and frustrated because of the man who ruined our good day. My friend, the man who hit, and other policemen went to the police to investigate what was happened. We waited at the front of the police building. After few hours, my friend came out of the police with her daddy and went to the hospital to check her nose. I heard that the man who hit my friend was still in the police building to be investigated. I came to my home late in the midnight and slept late at 1:30 A.M.

  On Thursday, I usually had a lot of homework from my school, but I did not have much homework on Thursday because Friday was a half day and all of my homework was not supposed to be finished by Friday. I had a lot of time to relax and had a good time by chatting with my friends and listening to the music. When I saw the little chick hatching, it was so amazing and graceful to see that because it was wonderful. But the chick looked so weak and small that I felt like I had to make it to eat something. But it was such a good experience for me to see that.

  On Wednesday, I learned and felt that I always have to do my homework and preparing the test before the due date and so that you can study more affectively. Reason for it is if I don’t study but only before the due date, it makes me to have such a tired and hard time because of the work. I decided to work hard and always work even though it is not due tomorrow.

 On Thursday, all of the classes were shorten because of the Fun Thursday. After the normal classes, every student in middle and high school to have a good time by playing dodge ball. Teachers also played it together with the students; therefore, it was more fun. After the school, Meena, Eugenia and I decided to go to somewhere we can have a good time together. Therefore, we decided to go to the “Buzz” where we can drink and eat something. We played and talked about all the things which are happening these days. About two hours later, we separated from each other and I went to my home. When I got to my home, I did not have any homework so I played for the whole day with the computer. During the midnight, I saw the first little chick coming out of the egg. I looked it for until 1 A.M. in the midnight. And I also could here Ms. Bae and Mr. MacRaild’s voice toward the little chick.

 On Wednesday, after the hard school for me, I had the clarinet lesson near my school. I was having very hard time there because at that particular time, I could not blow the instrument well which made me to have such a hard time. After it, I came to my home with the full of tiredness and studied for my tests and homework. Like other days, I had such a normal day on Wednesday.

 On Tuesday, when I was preparing the birthday cake for Ms. Bae with Elizabeth, I became surer with the fact that I feel good when I give other people something which will make me happy. Before, I thought getting something from others will be better than giving something. But I learned that it makes me happy when I give something to other people.

On Wednesday, I had such a normal school day with my friends and teachers. During the class time, I was very sleepy but I think I learned a lot of thing from the teachers and even my friends. After the school day, I had a clarinet lesson with my teacher. I practiced the duet song that I will be performing on the stage on December. After that, I walked rapidly to my home because I had a lot of homework and test on Thursday. When I arrived at my home, I opened my laptop and started to do my homework and was able to do quickly. During the dinner time, my mom came early to my home; therefore, my mom and I are the delicious dinner together. Therefore, I used rest of my day by studying for the tests and did chat with my friends. I slept at 12 P.M. because I was too sleepy and decided to wake up early in the morning.

On Tuesday, after the normal fun school day, when I celebrated Ms. Bae’s birthday with Elizabeth, I was so happy that I could at least do something for Ms. Bae at that moment. It was so hard to make the candle but I had a good time. I had such a helpful time by having the after school activity. After all, I went to my home and had such a busy but sleepy time for a whole day. I need to have a time to relax because I am too exhausted. But I am waiting for the sweet half day on Friday and no school day on Monday!

On Monday, I learned that not only staying at home and study by myself or chatting with my friends in my room but helping and studying with my friend by sharing ideas together. I really liked to stay at my home doing my homework and chatting with my friends because I am very familiar with that which I mostly do. I realized that there are more varies methods to study in this world. I was very thankful to God to make me to realize such a good lesson.
