I found out that my friends at different universities have already finished their semester.
How come my semesters at uni are so long?
It’s ok, but I feel envious seeing them enjoying their longer vacation.
This break is going to be particularly long.
Summer is coming in Australia, so being on holidays around this time in Australia is ideal.

Even though my classmates, most of whom are teachers, are still working on assignments,
I found that they can complete them very quickly.
They usually arrive later than me, and when they go back home, they have already done almost all of their work.
They can read and write a lot in a shorter time, and they then can get better results.
Since I am slow, I spend a whole week and do the same amount as they do.
I feel sad for my stupidnity and a sense of futility in my life.
Technically, this kind of situation isn’t really mean unfair, but I feel that way. haha
I want to relax at heart.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.

1. ambush (in a newspaper)
= a surprise attack by people lying in wait in a concealed position
2. top dog (in a newspaper)
= a person who is successful or dominant in their field
3. shut pie hole (in a newspaper)
