Day 16

This moleskin dashboard diary is the best planner that I have ever used. I can write German irregular verbs in the address book in the back packet. I can write the main dishes for dinner on the top and expenses on the bottom of each day, and the to-do list under each day in the weekly view. I can take notes on what I want to improve on in the back of the diary. The planner helps me to organize my life, and the quality of my time is greatly improved. By using the planner, I can do what I love and what I need to do effectively.

Day 16

I am interested in philosophy, I like to write, I want to pass on knowledge to the next generation, and I am participating in a children’s story writing workshop. R’s girlfriend mentioned that she likes to read children’s stories, which made me realize people want to read something that they can understand easily, but also learn at the same time.

Maybe I should write about philosophical ideas in the form of a children story. I just connected the two different studies together: children’s story writing and philosophy. I had this idea before, but I didn’t have time to really look into it.

A girl who recognized me as one of the volunteers at the school library made me think how much it means to kids when parents like us participate in school activities. I hope I can motivate them to learn a foreign language by reading to them in English as a non-native English speaker.
