It has been a while since I post something in this forum. I have to admit that I'm somewhat lazy at training my writing/speaking skills
Anyway, I've received an full offer from University of Melbourne. In other words, if everything goes right, I will attend classes without an English course that they provide for those who doesn't get the required score. To be honest, I would like to take English classes, but that's ok.
Well, some time ago I had thought that writing a diary (or journal, if you want) would be a good idea. However, it turned out that my days are very similar to each other
So I'll try to write (at least in a weekly basis) about random things. As always, please let me know any mistake I make.
Yesterday I met some former coworkers *. We worked at an helpdesk. This is quite fun because everyone have a lot of stories to tell and remember. For example, once there was a friend of mine that used to work at weekends. On a Saturday, he received a call from a attendant of a gas station. After talking about the technical problem he has having, the helpdesk said something like:
"Well, both of us are working at a weekend... at least you probably earn a good money for that!"
And the gas station's employee answered:
"Not so much. More or less R$ 1500".
The helpdesk worker used to earn about R$ 600. He immediately stand up and began to walk. After some minutes, he haven't returned yet. The workers of that day found it strange. Where were he? After some hours, nothing. He haven't came back in this day.
In the next week, nothing yet. He hadn't gone to work all the week. On Friday, his boss called him. Then we were informed that he was revolted and never would went back to the company
* - I would like to express that I went out with friends. Is this sentence (specially the verb meet) right?
