This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
I went to register to make sure whether they already sent my transcript to the grad school which I want to get into.
That ("that" is OK??) is because a staff at the admission of the grad school sent me an e-mail and it said they haven't received my transcript yet. I requested them two weeks ago, so I wondered why it has not been there.
And I figured out why it hadn’t reached there. That was because I had some holds, which means there were some problems with my school registration statue and it had prevented register officers from preceding my request stuff forward.(Is OK?)
I had two holds to override immediately. One was in International Admission and the other was the Casher stuff.
I went to check my statue there and they told me they need official TOEFL score. Actually, I already passed the criteria needed to get into Undergraduate level. But Problem was that I hadn't requested ETS(Institute taking care of TOEFL exam) to send an official score to the admission of USF. Since I had known that there was not enough time to wait until ETS send the official score because that procedure typically takes more than two weeks and it will be already after deadline of application for grad school(IS ok? " it will already after the deadline of application" and other parts?).
So I asked them if they could override my hold(is natural to say "though I didn't expect anything" here?), and fortunately they did. Thanks!!!
The other thing I have to take care of was casher stuff. This problem was simple. I had a hold here just because that I had not paid my tuition by the time I went to Casher office to check my statue. Actually, I had been waiting until my scholarship was coming into an account for my balance.(OK? I got confused) .
After finishing these problems, they finally promised me to put the transcript in the mailbox in the early morning tomorrow.
At the same time, through today's events, I realized some growing feeling about my English(is natural to say "growing feeling"? sence of growing?). It means that if I was old self, I wouldn't have solved these problem that fast (this quick??). It must have taken more time going around many places or asking people for help. Actually, I could communicate smoothly with all person who I met today without any problem. I guess I might be getting better in speaking.
I feel good for some reason. Ha-ha. I will sleep a lot today to regain my energy to study!!
Katie I am sorry I have tons of questions on this blog and last one.(other than sentences which I highlighted. SOOOOOO many...) Ha-ha. If you don't have time, don't worry. Please correct my writing only when you have time. Thanks always.
