Book Sale + Just Getting Allowance = Bad Combination

The weekend was rather dull since my guy was the best man for his good friend’s wedding. So I indulged myself with my newly-bought books. Yes! MPH was having a 20% storewide sale and I could not help but get the following:

I also managed to get my latest copy of the english version of Slam Dunk!

Sale Books + Comic Book = S$27

Ack! But I don’t regret

I’ve been dreaming of revamping this site totally. It feels like my other domain but I want it to be something edgy-er. Or something like that. I’m not sure whether to put it on a straight hiatus or just change the layout on the go (which means that visitors will see pretty funky stuff since I’m not covering up).

I won’t be able to start till September or October though. That’s when the school vacation starts. Not to mention I’ve still got my fanlistings to handle *sigh*

Should I go on a hiatus or let you see how ugly my process of codings can be?

I am The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune represents unexpected encounters and twists of fate. You can’t predict surprises; you can only be aware when one is circling around. Indeed, Card 10 often suggests wheel-like actions – changes in direction, repeating cycles and rapid movement. When the energy of the Wheel arrives, you will feel life speed up. You are caught in a cyclone that may deposit you anywhere. “Round and round and round she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows.”

With just a month before the end of the semester, I am having a hard time thinking whether I’m doing well or not.

Oral Communication (OC): I heard I scored between the 60-70 range for my first presentation. Then again, I don’t really trust hearsays. As for my speech writing, I missed the last lesson and have yet to get my results back.

Critical Reasoning Skills (CRS): One of the most loathed modules of mine (not just because of the lecturer), I failed my first essay writing on the casino debate. It’s a low fail, by the way.

Innovation; Design and Enterprise in Action (IDEA): My group scored well for our first presentation on our product, The BOX. The BOX is based on multimedia, wifi (wireless) and conceptual art. Go figure.

Database Management Systems (DBMS): Remember how I tried to run away from my test? I really lacked confidence in that paper, being the last one to enter the room and the first one to leave. I had a real shocking moment (my heart literally stopped for a nanosecond) when I found out that I had scored a distinction for that paper. My magical moment lasted for a few minutes until I asked the lecturer whether the paper was considered easy or hard.

“It is actually relatively easy.”

There goes my victory dance.

Graphic Design using Imaging Tools (GDIT): As you may have read, I had a B for my first assignment. Am awaiting for my grades for the next two.

Modeling and Photo-Rendering (MORG): I heard from one classmate that I got a D minus for my first assignment. Then, another classmate said that I got a D plus. I guess I’ll have to find out for myself.

Web Publishing (WEBP): I got a B for my practical test. How ironic that I should score well for DBMS but not this. I love WEBP much, much more than DBMS! (Well, I don’t love it as much when we’re building sites with Dreamweaver though. I’d much rather have my trusty NotePad, thank you.)

Drawing (DRAW): Got a B+ for my first assignment and a A for my second one. Funny, I thought my first one was better.

Mother used to say that my results are rather inconsistent. Well, I guess that means that I’m not born for consistency.

On my way to school, I thought I saw a friend of mine walking a few metres in front of me. I walked a little quicker to see if it was him, from the back and side profile, he looked like Terence. Excited, I gave a light slap on his arm. He turned around and I saw…

… a stranger.

No kidding! I nearly died there and then. He was looking at me really oddly and I could not bring myself to say, “Oops, wrong person.” Instead, I went, “You look really familiar…” (Note: not pickup line! I was just trying to ‘salvage’ the situation.)

And then I quickly said, “Never mind” and walked away in a hurried manner as after all, I was running late for class.
