7 hrs straight is really tiring, will not do that again in the future. Brain is so dead by the end of the night. A rather depressing day in uni. Argh, what a great way to end last wk of uni. I need to study really hard! Too much to do, but start from where? I am so lazy. Exams in 12 days. -- I have a fly buzzing around in my room. I hate chasing flies. -- I dreamt I got 6/29 for a test, dont know for which sub. A friend (cant see the face of the friend) got 16/29, s/he got quite upset too. I woke up feeling relieved and stressed. I hate these sort of dreams. It must be a wake up call for me to study hard. -- I feel so disoriented and discouraged. Dont know what's going on. Maybe I shld slp. Maybe I will wake up and realise that's it's a nightmare. Tml will be a better day, I hope.
I enjoy indulging in reminiscence, though it is a total waste of time. Hahaha. This is called procrastinating. Looking at old photos (or reading blog history) brings me back to the past, and it makes me forget about the present moment. Time passes extremely quickly during times like this. Hmm...I will tend to think back to that exact day the photo was taken and try to rem what happened before and after. So many stages of my life and so many groups of friends. Then start thinking how these friends are doing now. Interesting. If only I have more time to waste. -- Choosing subjects is such a chore. I didnt have to choose any subjects during my ugrad. Just take everything, so simple. Now got to choose between so many subjects. Then after that try to get into the same streams as coursemates. Headache. Finally enrolled and chosen my subjects after so many days. Now just waiting for the subjects to be approved. 1 yr is almost over, I am scared. After next yr, it will really be job searching time. No more slacking arnd like what I did after obtaining my degree. Might not get to go back at the end of next yr if I want to stay here to work. Time to grow up and not think of home so frequently. Dad's thinking of getting me a 1-way ticket, but he booked a return one for me, haha.
Had Dot's Hen's Night over at our place yest. It was very gd. Had a gd time torturing her, but looks like she had lots of fun being tortured too. Enjoyed the re-enactment of the proposal skit by Shake and XX. It was really funny. Towards the end of the night when most girls had left, we made faces for Dot and Andrew's chn while she was busying with a call or something. We had a great time doing it. Their chn turned out to be scary and hilarious looking. Pics in facebook. Maybe will post them here ltr on if I am not lazy. -- My brain's working as fast as my laptop...Cant process info properly. Hmm...maybe that's one of the reason why when I like something, I will like it for a long time. Cant change fast enough.
I suddenly feel so free now. Completed all my assignments for the yr. Submitted last 3 today, including a presentation. There's still 1 more assignment to go, but that's nothing, just a compilation. ADM was due Mon 5pm. On Sun abt 1am, we thought we were almost done with it. At 2am, grp mate suddenly called to say we made a mistake in our transaction coz we failed to read the assignment clarification. It might affect a few of our answers. We panicked. Had to have an urgent meeting this morning. Luckily it was all solved. After that had to panic another time as we had a presentation and I hate presentations. Well, it's all over...for now. Can finally concentrate on studying for exams. I never worked so hard before. After all my effort put in, hope all these will pay off, if not can really cry. Hmm..thought I will have an early night tonight after all the drama. Not so early after all. 2.50am.
This is what happens when you dont update immediately after an event. Influx of pics, haha. But I love blogs with pics. Makes the blog more interesting. The 2 most memorable things which happened during the Spring break was Tulip Fest. and Spore Day. Hmm...it will be my first and last time going to Tulip Fest. Not a huge fan of flowers and it costs us $10 entrance fees. If you want to pick tulips, pay again. Those colours are not nice. Cheat your money. But we still bought home anyway. The tulips wiltered very quickly. We had more fun looking at the guys having fun with the sculptures.
Spore Day was gd. Ok let me rephrase it. It was a gd experience. Many moments I actually thought I was back in Spore. Look around and there were queues. The way ppl were speaking were so Singaporean. Shudder. They really wanted us to feel that way I think. They made us queue for so long to get in. We queued for close to 1 hr before we finally got in. Once we got in, got to queue for goodie bags. And queue for food. We love freebies. Didnt take a pic of what we got in the bag. Of coz NEWater is one of the freebies. Till now still havent tried it. Dont dare, haha. Ok suddenly lost the mood to write. Pics are enough. Once again have to apologise to those with limited or slower internet speed.
Singapore Day (4th Oct) I heart sg. Stamp on hand so you cant get a 2nd goodie bag. Have to do this sort of things to singaporeans, lol.
Queue behind us, cant see the end of the line.
Queue in front of us, cant see the start of the line.
Finally inside, queue for free food. Look at the crowd. Massive turn up. Heard there were abt 12 000 ppl.
I kept reading "Queue For Her".
After queuing for 1 and a half hrs, this is what we got. Hokkien Mee with super huge prawn, chicken rice and Cha Kuey Teow. I gave up after queuing once. Forgot how it feels to queue for things. That's what singaporeans love to do. See a line, just queue, moreover it's free!
A caucasian serving food on Spore Day, lol.
Goodie bag collection. Singaporeans love free stuff, super kiasu.
Sitting in the sun watching some performance. PCK I suppose.
PCK and family in Melb. Tay Ping Hui was here too. He was singing songs! Didnt know he can sing. I like Dick Lee's fried rice song, funny lyrics. "Home" was played too. One of my fav. national day songs. -- Tulip Fest./Sky High (30th Sept) I like the white tulips. Ok I know those are pink ones, not colour blind. Was just making a statement.
Opps, pics a little jumbled up, oh well. Miss Marples scones. Mt. Dandenongs.
Hmm...some toffee something.
...and the guys tried to imitate.
My personal favourite. Never fail to make me laugh each time I look at this pic.
I am so strong.
We are here at the exact same spot again. Giant's chair at Sky High.
Lastly...Michelle's expression, haha. -- pics stolen from facebook.
Waiting for hair to dry and I have nothing to do atm, so decided to update smthing while waiting. Cant really start on work, brain's not working too well now. Actually since evening just now. Just a warning that this might turn out to be an emo, and maybe random post since it is the time of the night. No, nothing's wrong, just want to rant on abt stuff. Hols is coming to an end very soon. Achieved nothing this break. I feel so tired. Tired of everything. Why cant things be simple. Sometimes I just feel the need to disappear into my own little world for a bit. It would be useful to have Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, lol. Maybe I am just too fed up with all the grp meetings. I must have said it more than a zillion times, but still got to say. I really miss doing grp work together with Jess and Lee-ean. We fit in nicely like a jig-saw puzzle. Complementing each other. Although I've found friends in this current course, it just feels kind of different from ugrad coursemates/friends. For ugrad grp of friends, we are a rather closely knitted grp, but as for pgrad, we just meet up for assignments. We dont really know each other as a genuine friend friend. Our convo dont really go far from assignments. Ok must give them credit, maybe once in a while we talk abt shows/movies. Oh well, maybe ppl are not as open as we grow older. Dont dare to step out of our comfort zone. Yup me included, too comfortable with current situation and dont want to try anything else. Well well well, I dont know what to say. I want to give up, too tiring!!
2.23am now, maybe I shld use smthing called the hair dryer, lol. Got to slp soon, waking up relatively early. Was so looking forward to Spore Day tml, or rather later on. Hmm, can see how enjoyable this holiday is huh, I can be this excited abt little things. Cannot keep my hopes too high, in the end it might be nothing at all. But at this current point of time, all I feel like doing is to slp and not care abt anything.
