As teachers we always suggest keeping a diary to improve one’s writing, capture memories and to express the variety of emotions that arise whilst studying internationally. Celine has been very generous in sharing some of the experiences from her very well kept and maintained diary that she kept whilst preparing for her FCE exam next week.

Raining, raining, raining….in the morning I woke up and it was raining. I went to make my breakfast because Jelka (a girl from the student house) wanted to eat together. She is a really nice person and I will miss her until she comes back in 6 weeks. I said goodbye to her then I went to Hastings Street for shopping with Nicole. I found an anklet in a nice little shop. In the evening I made dinner some dinner, did my homework and wrote to my best friend.

Yes, it is sunny! I saw the sun in the morning. I gathered my things together and went to the beach. On the way to the beach I made a stop and bought a magazine. I enjoyed my time with music, reading the magazine and watching the big waves. I remember this special moment in my life.

A great day for a walk to Mount Coolum. I made an arrangement with Barbara and we went by bus to Sunshine Plaza first because Barbara needed something. After that we enjoyed a coffee and a cake. Then we went to Mount Coolum. The walk was great and the natural environment is wonderful. I enjoyed the lookout point it was amazing. The weather was also beautiful. After that we walked to Coolum Beach and then back home. I like this mountain although for me it isn’t really a mountain. In Switzerland 208 meters is only a valley but here it is a mountain.

Music is Life! Barbara, Nicole and I were at the Peregian Originals Festival. It was by Peregian Beach and it was a free event. We thought it was really nice. Four different artists made music and they changed every hour. It was special to see the different people there. A lot of people wore hippy clothes but I like this type. The first musician was the best in my opinion. He made the music with a lot of feeling and emotions. I like it when people can perform with their emotions. We enjoyed this for 4 hours and had a picnic.

Eumundi Markets. At 9 o’clock we drove to the Eumundi Markets. It was the second time I was with Barbara and Nicole. We enjoyed it because we needed more than 4 hours. I bought my father a leather belt. I also found two bracelets for my two best friends. They have a special meaning so I hope that’s a good gift. By the belt stand Barbara began talking with this man. It was really nice and at the end we got a special sales discount because the man said that we were lovely people. That was lovely of him. I also found new trousers. However, at the end we enjoyed a cold drink in a restaurant and drove back home. It was a really nice day and I enjoyed it.

Noosa National Park. I met with Barbara and Nicole. We walked to Dolphin Point and enjoyed the special marine life there and the sea. We took pineapples and melons to eat. Unfortunately we didn’t see any dolphins but we saw a big turtle and it was so great. At the end we watched the nice sunset and walked back home. I arrived at home and Doris said that we could have a dinner together. I helped her and we had a nice evening together. It was a beautiful day.

Everglades – a wonderful day! We started in Noosa with a bus then we changed onto a boat. After 90 minutes we arrived in the Everglades. We had a little coffee break with coffee, tea and cakes. Then we started with canoeing. There were 3 people in one canoe. I was with Nicole and a girl from Canada. We had a lot of fun. One hour later we had a break and got a really nice lunch. After that we paddled the canoes back to the boat. It was so hard at the end and I felt my body because we had a head wind. I found this day so beautiful and I really enjoyed being outdoors with different plants and animals.

Happy Birthday Mijoon! I don’t like it when people have birthdays and they don’t get a cake. I surprised Mijoon (she lives with me) with little cup cakes and a birthday candle. She was so surprised that she had tears in her eyes. It was so sweet.

Kangaroo! After school I was with Barbara and Nicole by the Noosa River and we enjoyed a really good BBQ. I was the Master Chef!!!!
On the menu were two different sorts of potatoes, zucchini and kangaroo meat (for the first time). It was great to cook in the outdoors with a wonderful sunset, good music and the cliffhanger talks together. I really enjoyed this special evening on the river.

Tewantin National Park! I love it! It was such a good day trip. I was with Barbara and Nicole and we enjoyed this day together so much. We took more than two hours to get to the top of the mountain. We took a lot of pictures also like tourists because we took an Australian flag up with us. It was really a great and funny day. We laughed a lot about different situations. It was really enjoyable and the weather was amazing.

Shopping Day! I was with Barbara by the Noosa Civic and it was my first time there. It was really good because I found two pairs of trousers (short), one shirt and a new pair of sunglasses. Barbara found a lot also. We had a good day for shopping because it was a lot cheaper on this day. In the end we stayed for 4 hours. After that we took the bus home but it was the wrong bus! What a mistake. We took more than one hour to get home. We also had to change the bus which was so funny. In the end I found my home and enjoyed dinner that I made. No fear I also studied for the exam on this weekend.
