The wind's so strong today, esp at night. Had dinner with Huimin before she flies back to Spore tml. Didnt really want to eat, but ended up eating so much anyway. Had Korean at Oriental Spoon. Havent been there since last yr I think. The food's still very gd. On our way back, the strong wind made us do stupid things. We wanted to jump up to have a "flying" feeling. Everytime we wanted to do that, there would be someone behind us, if not we would be next to a car. We do silly things together. Haha, it's gd to have someone as silly as you. Too bad my silly buddy is going away. Take care silly bud.
Had a gd trip today. Our whole house was somehow late. Couldnt wake up..Wanted to take some random train and go some random place. Counted fingers and ended up going to Werribee, the open range zoo and the mansion. Been wanting to go to the zoo, since Peishan was here, finally had the experience. I really liked the safari ride. It was like Jurassic Park, fun. Saw many safari animals. Had a nice dinner at Richmond. Lazy to blog abt it already...
The "Jurassic Park" bus.
The most scary and ugly animals I've ever seen - Bisons.
First paper after returning to student life had totally demoralised me. It's so bad. So bad I tell you. No time. I thought 2 hrs would be more than enough, but it was really bad. There wasnt time to think, so it's either you know or you dont. Wrote so little for some qn, esp the 10 marks ones. Dont know how much is enough. Made stupid mistakes as well. I totally dont know how to analyse and evaluate a company's finances. I wrote very crappy stuff. Did well in the assignments for this sub, but it is such a pity that I cant do well for the overall, because I am sure the exam will pull me down. Just aiming for a pass in the exam. The only constant thought that ran thru my mind during the exam was 'Die, what if I dont pass. I am surely going to fail at the rate I am writing and at the rubbish I have written. I cant enjoy my hols. Any sub papers to take?' Yup I still had time to think abt useless stuff. Haha..Oh man, did I say the paper was bad? It was really bad, like really really bad. Argh...Hope the other 3 papers wouldnt be as bad... I am feeling as if I finished exams. Dont feel like studying anymore. No mood. So depressing =(
Had discussion with coursemates abt case study this afternoon. Didnt do much after that. Lost all the motivation in studying. It is as if I know everything and at the same time not knowing anything. Yup complicated to understand I know, haha..Sigh, really cant wait for exams to be over. Want to watch all the shows, read more books (fictional books, not textbooks =p), go shopping and talk to my housemates. Love the talks we always have. After OCF yest night, I planned to study. Before starting, went down to get clothes out of the dryer, but ended up in Shake's room. In the end spent so long there just talking abt everything. That's one of the dangers of staying with housemates whom you can talk so easily to. I enjoy talks like that.
Ok things are not making much sense now. Do I really have to study? I still have 2 case studies for 2 subjects to read. Havent touched.
Ahh!!!! "Bring back.. oh bring back... oh bring back my motivation to me" Adapted from the song "My Bonnie". I just realised I can end of my posts with songs. This sort of talent only comes during exam period. Hahaha!! Anyway I always found this song freaky, gives me goosebumps.
I will revise my work after each lect from next sem onwards!! Cant seem to remember stuff, things I just read like 3 days ago seemed so foreign, cant rem all the definitions. Revising 4 subs at the same time, so everything's jumbled up in my limited brain space. Dont dare to move my head too much, just in case the info. falls out. Getting worried abt not knowing anything. Had yet another nightmare abt exams. I rem it was BF paper, i havent read the case study and had no idea what to do. Surprisingly I wasnt very panicky in the dream, just thought I would crap whatever comes into my mind. Imagine the relief when I woke up. The other night I suddenly woke up in the middle of my sleep and started memorising stuff. So scary, think I am going crazy soon.
Monty Python song lyrics "Always look on the bright side of life". LOL!!
I feel very blessed with life. Whenever I feel the peace, I cant help thinking if there will be a thunderstorm at the end of it. It is as if everything is happening too smoothly. Erm not exactly for exams preparations though, it's just life in general. Cant ask for better housemates. Yup I know I am always saying that, but I really have great hsemates. Our 1.1 is so nice I must say. Since she finished her thesis 2 wks ago, she started her job as a maid, which was to cook for us. We dont have to worry abt our dinner. Not only does she cook, she experiments with them. In the end everything will turn out to be so nice. We always have different choices for dinner. Surprise everyday. We had roast duck for dinner tonight!! Not bought, but prepared by Shake with all her blood and sweat, haha.. It was very gd! We told her if she wants to change career, be a chef is another option. With her around, no one will starve. Ok since I am emo-ing now (it's 3.38am, that's why, it's not my fault that I am emo, it's the time), will talk abt no.3 too. Speaking abt her, she is starting her exams tml, or rather later on in the afternoon. All the best, get at least 90%!! Anyway she never fails to make me laugh. She will do a lot of silly things, she is very funny. Mental block, suddenly nothing else to say abt No.3. No.4, my bro, I also nothing much to say for now. It's late, cant think properly. I really enjoy our Sitcom House, it's a place where all the fun begins, hahahaha!!! Thank God for letting us find such a wonderful place with wonderful housemates!! . . . Ok enough of emo-ing, back to finishing up my target for today, if possible. Didnt get much revision done after coming back from Starbucks. New day new discovery, I cant study in front of my laptop, it's too distracting. Starbucks is a nice place. Thanks Jon Lai for choping a place for me though I denied ur existence, hahaha....Me bad me bad..Will try to study downstairs without lappy. If that succeed, maybe I dont have to walk so far to study. Btw Rachelle's brownies are fantastic. She came over to bake with Daniel. Timo came over to get some medicine, in the end he stayed till so late as well. Shake's ex-housemate joined us for dinner too. Sounds like a chill night huh. Everyone so chill, as if no exams. . . . Super long post. Havent written such a long post for a long time. Havent posted so frequently for such a long time too.
I constantly ask myself the question of "What have I brought unto myself??" Why did I choose to study again, which is having exams all over again. When I was "working" last yr, I longed to go back to uni, but when I am back, I dread the exams part. Nevertheless I am still enjoying the course, except exams of coz. I hate the tense feeling whenever exam is around the corner. Everyone's rushing back home or to the lib to study. Today everyone was gone by 2pm after church. I had a gd nap when I came back, bed's very comfortable. Havent reached today's target. Doing 1 BF lect, still have POM to go. I enjoy marketing subjects, easier than the other 2 boring ones. Off to study at Starbucks tml. Reminded me of the times when we used to occupy the big table to study with Chuns and Jess.... Hopefully no one to fight places with us.
It's officially winter. Nice. Love the cold weather.
