My Trouble Day
I cannot believe that it went so fast today!
I had a little bit problem today. I needed to go to the bank today, but I realized that I lost my bank card! I called to the bank to cancel my bank card,so now everything is OK. I didn't expect that would happen to me, but I learned that the important thing was being calm and following the procedure you need. I will be careful about it.
I was supposed to ask Naoko about some tips about how to promote the Intern's Journal today, but I couldn't do it. (because of the reason above) So, what I have done today was I filled out the form from one of the agents to explain about VEC, and helped some students at the reception. Also, I asked Ai, Assistant Marketing Director, if I could observe her counseling to know how she talked to trial lesson students. It will also give me some tips to promote the school.
Well, that's about it today, have a good evening.

Popularity of "VEC Intern's Journal"
I asked John, Web Developer, about how many people have accessed to VEC Intern's Journal the other day, because I was wondering how the Journal promoted the school. John told me that it currently had aGoogle PageRank of 3 out of 10, which is a good start for such a young page. Also, I am interested in helping to increase the popularity of the Journal. I will ask Naoko, Japanese Web Developer, some tips about how to promote the Intern's Journal tomorrow. This is going to be great because I can compliment my existing web experience, and I can be a famous web personality!!
Other things I have done today was some pieces of translation and answering questions at the reception. It went so fast today, I cannot believe that it's already 4 o'clock today!
I'll be working on translation and more.
Have a nice evening.

New Session Started
I came to school 8 a.m. this morning to help new students. New session started today, so we had a lot of new students. It was very interesting for me to meet students from Latin America, Asia, and some other countries. Most of students were new to Vancouver, so they asked me how to get to the bus stop and open a bank account in Vancouver.
Also, I worked on translation "Arriving at YVR" which was very important information for students who applied Airport Pickup Service. While I was translating this, it reminded me of the day arrived in Vancouver. I remember that I was so excited to meet my host family at the airport.
I was a little sick on weekend, so I didn't do much. (I feel much better today.) I will be working on other translation tomorrow.
Have a nice evening!
