I spent a quiet weekend at my home. I watched my TV show favourite and had some drink with my friend from university on Saturday night. There was a guy whom I haven't meet since the graduation day. He is now working for a company in the field of drilling mud and solution. His family live a building next to mine. But we never faced each other until saturday night.I planned to prepare my lecture last weekend, but I couldn't focus on doing that task. I opened the laptop and watched film, video clip, news...It it better to work in the office like I always did when I studied my PhD in Italy.

It is an interesting question for me at this moment. I have spent a lot of time and money on drinking since the day I arrived at my work place in the south of my country. It is really my problem for my body weight. I need to move my body as much as possible. I bought a bicycle to go around the city center when I have time. I take the staircase instead of the elevator at my work place. I play football twice or three times a week. I always feel powerful after each football game. When I was in Italy, I went to the university by bike for a 5 km ride.

As soon as it finishes, there will have lots of job vacancies for the new undergraduate in the field of petroleum engineering.

How to master a language? If you start to learn a new language, you always face with the trouble such as: grammar, vocabulary, speaking...In my own experience, the best method is practice, practice and practice and you should maintain the similarity with that language everyday.
I take an English as an example for my experience. There are four skills in mastering a language: reading, speaking, writing and listening.
With the reading, I read English novel to get used with the writing style and new vocabularies. In the first few months, you might try with one chapter in one day but never stop to understand the meaning of new words. Just simply highlight and look up after finishing that chapter. I know for sure that you will improve your reading skill with the English novel. Although I myself have never finished one novel in my mother tongue language, I have read hundreds of books by various authors, i.e: Michael Connelly, Nicholas Spark, Dan Brown, Lee Child, Patricia Cornwell. I love reading books, especially thriller crime. There are many various sources in english language you can use everyday. go to bbc.com to update the international news or goal.com to see what is going on with the football world. Read whatever you like or favour in english. Keep it as a habit and you familiarize yourself with english.
Finally, Italy national football team defeated Spain 2 - 0 to take full revenge for their loss in the Euro final match (0 - 4). They did a great work in the 1/8 game of Euro 2016 vs the La Roja. They have solid and experienced defenders (all over 30 years old, except Bonucci 28), versatile midfielders. Gianluigi Buffon had a great match with a bunch of save and nobody can believe that he is 38 years old now. Spanish players did not have lots of space to show their football style. Iniesta, Morata were completely silent until a volley that was denied by Buffon. Italian fans must be very happy and satisfied at this moment. Although theirs heroes were not highly considered as a strong team before the opening ceremony, every other team should keep an eye on Italy.
The next game versus Germany is going to remind Buffon and Co. of a sweet memory from the Euro 2012 semi-final and the WC 2006 semi-final. In 2012, two goals of Baloteli saw off Germany although they dominated the game. Germany is stronger than themselves 4 years ago, but Italy is very confident now. Everything can happen in this match and one thing for sure that Italy is going to play as their usual "cantenaccio" style.
