Time flies!!! Already time to go “Back to School”!!!

Wow…, how come time passes by so fast when we have a vacation…. Not fair….!!! 😦

Yes, it’s already 1 week left until September! It means… time to go back to school! oh oh…

Yes, summer vacation has been great. Sometimes work, sometimes travel, and sometimes just chilling… Then, I didn’t study as much as I expected the beginning of this summer vacation. Can I tell you some excuses?!

It was way too hot this summer in Montreal!! It was absolutely no way to stay at my place for study, even I couldn’t stay without keep sweating… What about going to a library? Sure, it would have been one of the solutions to study in this uncomfortably hot summer. But, you know what happened, didn’t you? Going to a library for self-study during school off-season, I need a lot of motivation.

Anyways, studying at Graduate School has been giving me a life challenging time. This fall will be my 3rd semester though, still, I feel nervous about how it will be…!!


During this fall semester, I will take 3 classes + 1 tutorial class for Business Data Analytics. Stats. Omg… Stats… this will be my headache for sure. Our textbook has almost 800 pages. How it will end after that?? Seriouslyyyyy…

Other classes’ textbooks have also 500 pages. So much pressure…!!

As I am not a fluent English speaker, usually it’s said that we take time to understand 3 times more than a native speaker. I never studied much when I was in University in Japan. It’s really different and much difficult to graduate here. I can’t even compare how much I need to read before the class. It is a practical way to learn though.

10 more days to go!!! I will do as much as I can to try not making myself screwing up!!

All the best to people who go back to school next month!

We Can Do It!!! 😉

Nothing special, but full of small happiness and surprises are hiding in our ordinary days. Let’s share some spice of life a little by little!
