Now comes the seasons of examination.....

In another two weeks time, i be having my final exam....

But then i think its quite contradictory, whenever my exams are coming
i feel the urge to blog and write more....

However, i really do wonder y does it happen only when exams are coming....
Is it because of the exam that i am more stress and are more likely to vent out my stress here through some writings?

or iS it because that during exam period, i am more likely to think about things that are happening...
cos in this time of the year, i believe the brain activity going through my brain would be the most active..

For the rest of the time, i can just forget about it... i am living in absolute blurness.... I have friends to remind me to hand in assignments and then i will rush them out at the last min.... I have friends to remind me of my midterm.. so that i can remember to study at least a bit for it.... Hmm... if u are thinking of how did i survive, i think and hope taht i have done it pretty well for this sem.. and the previous ones... hahaa....

But then sometimes, i can somehow figure that i need to hand in assignments... The thing is i hate to check the ivle... haha... blame it on pure laziness or the refusal to bring myself to the reality... hee hee.. when the lecturer just reminded us verbally... i am more likely to forget her instructions than she post it online.. even if she post the reminder online, given the frequency that i checked the ivle, by the time i knew it, its always too late..

The reason that i been living this way is that i just want to get my cert and puff..... out of the education system...

But right now amidst this exam.. i start to confront myself with issues like do i want to go ahead to do my honours?
First the results must be good enough and worthwhile to do so...

I realise that i can do honours after all but then its a matter of choice of whether i shall do it or not....
At this time, i can t really weigh the pros and cons of doing or not doing honours....

Doing honours for the sake of doing it? but then wads the purpose?

Maybe i have asked a lot of ppl for their views.... maybe i have been going through this questions many times....
But certainly i do not have an answer right now.....

Sometimes i really hoped that i have someone to decide my life for me.. and tell me to do this and that.... So that i do not have to think so much for myself.....

So should i do it or not..

Maybe this is not the right time to think about the issue.. cos my exams are around the corner....

Thats y there is such a contradiction in me.... i think about things at times i should not do so....

Right now i just rest my case.... i think i will worry about it after the exams.....

The next term is the last chance for me to do it... after that, there will be no turning back......

Since this sun, i have been sleeping late...

cos i have to rush out an essay to hand up on monday...
then on monday itself, i have to prepare for a presentation where i have no idea on what i am going to do...

Anyway i think i sux at this presentation, there is no focus on the key words... wrong pauses and too much pauses..

i felt like i am rushing through the presentation..... overall conclusion: sucky....

I wonder if i did every presentation like that? haizzz

Its really a lot of differences in presenting alone and with a group of people.... At least with a group, it is more comfortable standing there...

I am so going to join toastmaster club... but i wonder how do i go about joining it.... haha
i shall go find out more details on it...

anyway now i have to rush out another presentation.. haizzz thats due on fri....

hope i do better this time round... but anyway its a group presentation.. It cannot form the basis for comparision...
As i said its always better to present with a group... haha

Going to get back to work... NO time no time No tIme !!!!!!

Recently i cannot access the internet cos the network is quite unstable at the new place..
i cant really figure out why.. first its the telephone undercable problem.... I am not sure wad kind of problem is that...
I only knew that i dun have a telephone line and the calls to the old number goes to another place instead...

After a weekend of living without a proper phone and internet at home.... I finally got my broadband working yesterday.. But the thing is that sometimes i just cant sign in to MSN and access to the msn homepage site..
I spend the whole night trying to logged on the internet...
An unsuccessful attempt...

Try it again this morning and its working.... FUnny!!!!!

then wad am i suppose to tell those singtel guys...
EH the internet isnt working at times... i also dunno wads the problem...could u pls kindly send ur men to check it out for me? ?

So wads the problem?? with my comp or the internet connection?
I dun get this...

Called for pizza delivery yest... but then cos the pizzahut at the area is closed and do not take orders for delivery...
The operator asked me to call again in another 15 mins to see if they would accept orders. but then its another NO after a 15 mins wait...
I ended up having to pick up the pizza myself.. But then its 20% cheaper...

The pizza hut was closed to empty when i reached... there isnt many people dining there... and i looked around the whole place..... I saw the staff working there... all ahmahs... they are not v busy... some are even chatting.. Then i knew why they cant deliver the pizza to my place.... I know y.... I went inside the cashier to pay and saw the manager... Another ahmad... he almost give me the wrong pizza and had mistaken me for another customer who had paid for it... Wad a nice experience...

However, its 20% cheaper.... Next time i picked up the pizza myself..... wahhahaah..... or i go for KFC instead.... or i should try the 62410241 instead....

Hope everything would settle down.... When you land urself at a new place..... you really have to spend some time adapting.... Even its for the better....

I sincerely wish that the internet connections would stop giving me problem.....

Its late now.... have a lot of things to do recently.....
maybe i just wanted the september archive to appear as i start on an october entry...

SOmehow things just came at the same time.... everything.....

I cut my finger again this week.... a deep but small cut....

Last week i cut my palm....

Haizzzz all those packing are killing me....

Then grandfather is in hospital. He is just relying on the life supporting system to keep his life..

A rather hopeless situation.... I try to visit him again..
The last time he was weak. no strength to do anything...
now i think he is just asleep... he din open his eyes anymore...
I wonder when he is going to wake up from his coma.. or he is not.....

LIfe is just so vulnerable...

Recently i read some pharses or stories from somewhere that i cant remember

It goes like this


all the cups with water are placed together on a table.. when people are invited to take a drink, the better cups will be taken away first. All that was left would be the uglier cups. However this can be understood.... cos everyone would inevitably want the better for oneself... though the more important thing is the water that is stored inside the cup, the people would still go for the better cups when they want to quench their thirst...

In real life, the thirst would be ur life... the cup would be the houses, fame, reputation, education, profession. Even though u only need the water to sustain ur life, everyone would still go for the better cups....

SO wads the point of going for the best cups and neglected the joy of just drinking the plain water?
