How foolish I was

The Sandman Vol. 1 - Preludes and Nocturnes

Lost one class. It was an English conversation class that I made a reservation of last week. I was working on some computer jobs. Tearing down the large projects into smaller ones, I was checking that any build failure would occur. That was 5:45, just 50 minutes before I leave the office. Found one phone call that I couldn’t get. Guess I was being too much concentrated on my work. So, I called the number on the screen back and realized had missed the class. Actually, I didn’t know anything about my reservation. I thought that Tuesday would be the first day of this week’s study. But it was not!

How foolish I was! I missed a class and lost over forty thousand-won which is over 1 percentage of my monthly income. I should have been more careful. However, I failed because I had thought that October 21 would be today but today is October 20. I’m using Google Calendar and Remember the Milk, which is a to-do list service, to make my life organized, but it didn’t work this time. I hope that the mistake like this would never happen again. 40 thousand-won is too much. If I had money of that much, I could buy a GPS recorder for the digital camera or a book of Sandman series.

Well, about Sandman. This is the one of the most terrific graphic novels I have ever read. I heard that Sandman is known in English culture as the god like existence who throws sands over the eyes of children to make them sleep.  In this graphic novels, Sandman is not a god but the immortal, and he is in charge of Dreamworld. The description of Dreamworld is very creative and fantabulous. Now, I just started to read the third book and more than four months would be taken until I finish reading all of other 8 books. So, for the rest of 2 months, I would be happy.

  1. “build” is a verb, is it used here as a noun? If yes, then clarify what “build failure” means. Did you mean “building failure”?

    My intention:  “build failure” is one of commonly-used words in the area of the programming.

  2. My intention: “Dreamworld” is the exact word used in the books. That’s the reason why I didn’t use ‘the Dream world”
