【潔西家】跟潔西一起看英文新聞 八月三十日

給大家一個忠告,睡前不要看推理小說,潔西昨天看到欲罷不能,三點才看完,然後呢因為當中大腦一直在動,推理真相究竟是如何,結果看完大清醒,完全睡不找,睡著時天都快亮了,睡到今天下午才醒來,真是太誇張了,今天要早一點睡。

今天不小心拿起另外一本小說又看了起來,本來要備課的時間都拿去看小說了,這樣實在不行啊,還好這次只借了四本小說,看完兩本了,打算一個月後再去圖書館。昨天想借食譜,找不到合適的,而且食譜的書都精裝,超重的。

對了,大家來猜猜剛剛大寶造的句子是什麼意思

I am not going to Make a vlog Wait a second.

潔西這個阿姨剛剛上課的時候笑好久笑到肚子痛,真是對不起大寶,學生會覺得理所當然的句子,老師會笑到肚子痛,潔西每次笑完都要道歉,笑點太低,學生被笑應該會很不舒服或生氣吧?但是有時候真的忍不住。

潔西原本看不懂大寶的句子,make a vlog 就是做影像部落格,wait a second 是請人家等一下。看了幾次才發現啊,大寶是要說 I am not going to make a vlog later. 中式英文來講是沒錯,later 是等一下的意思,Wait a second. 也是等一下,但是用法跟詞性差很多。語言實在是很奇妙又很好玩,有時候又有點難啊!

今天要早點睡,明天要早點起,最近太混了,好像應該要認真一點了呢,認真做什麼呢?還不太清楚,前途茫茫,需要好好地考慮,但是一直逃避看影片看小說也不是辦法啦。加油吧!藍色星期一終於過去了,晚安晚安!
