I'm a person how likes to do things thoroughly. My packing list has been constructed for two days now and finally I feel that I'm finished. But then I realised that I couldn't tell a half of the items in English (wish may be important if I lose some) so now I decided to translate it. This could maybe be helpful in future while I travel somewhere else.

I've always struggled with my English and always feel like I'm bad in both speaking and writing. I think going to Australia is really good for my development in first case spoken English. As my written English is the weakest link I also want to do something extra to make that progress better, in this case having a diary. 

Important is also to see my own progress and that's what I think is so good about writing here. So the plan right now is to do a lot of writing (of course it also comes naturally in Uni) and do a lot of reading, like fictions and newspaper but also inspirational blogs and articles. 

​​Today I downloaded a document with academic English words and went through them. I saved them as a bookmark on my computer for later use. (One key to write a good essay is to have a proper language). Find the words here. Other preparations I've done is to start watching vlogs from Australia and borrowed English books at the library. 

Now I'm going to watch a movie with Otto.
