I am not gonna bother of thinking ot a title as this is gonna b another random post again. Just after 3 days in my Semester 2; i noticed and realised a lot of stuffs that I am and will face. Let me just roughly introduce my modules and see: Communication Skills, Introduction to Business, IT Application, Quatative Methods Study. Let’s just take a look at a list that I’ve come out with:
1. Overlapping of syllabus
I have realised the topics on my new modules are very much similar to my Semester 1. I don’t know why but it seems that the modules overlaps each other. For instance, Communication Skills overlaps with Personal Development and Study Methods; Introduction to Business overlaps with Organisational and Social Environments; and Quantative Methods overlaps with Mathematics. I am not saying the whole module and topics are in common but there are mostly the same. Maybe this semester might be more in-depth study. I am not sure. IT Application basically is about Microsoft Words, Excel, Access and Powerpoint. That is basically my syllabus for this semester
2. Suffering over the new timetable
I hate my new timetable. And no, if you think Alvin hates all his timetable, I don’t. My first semester was quite okay for me. My new timetable starts all classes from 8am to 5pm or 6pm from Mondays to Fridays except Thursdays. Thursdays are my official off day. However, can you imagine the amount of time spend in the college doing unuseful stuffs. Bear in mind, I got 2-3 hours break in between classes every single day. It’s such a waste of time and money. I can actually finish classes 3 hours earlier if they take off the break. And probably I’d been having sufficient and adequate rests.
3. The permanent lecturers
I mean I am not saying anything much on this. But I gotta add that I got a new Quantatative Methods lecturer. She wasn’t suppose to be my lecturer. Ms Jessica was. She came in and she is so inexperienced. She can’t even control the class. She controls the class like a primary school. Her soft petite voice with poor command of English just makes you feel so annoyed. Her threats of bringing us to see who-and-who doesnt work at all. Her glarings are all just so useless. She does her work at her own pace; not at ours. I don’t know what she is teaching at all. I am seeing ber for both tutorials and lectures, if you are wondering. 3 times a week of her face is just sickening.
4. Facing the Admins!
You know what I mean, problems are already arising at it’s first semester. Classes and Names not right. Last mnute notices. The unclear notices and so on sometimes just bothers you. They can’t take the initiative to print the whole list out and for students to change it. They have to hear long stories and they change from the computer itself. You don’t even know how messy and time consuming it was. Their reluctant faces was terrible. And there, they got so efficient by calling everyone of us personally through phone to pay our fees. Isn’t that ridiculous? Time isn’t even up. You aren’t even settled with your own admin problem and you come ask for fees from us?
All in all, I shall summarise that college is great without APIIT’s admin. 2nd Semester will not be easy for me as I can’t get the opportunity to crap already. And thats so sad. I am deprived of sleep lately. I am getting so lazy because Semester 1 just finished. And I didn’t study for Semester 1 either. So I’ve not studied for some time.
I am and was selected for a debate sessiong this Monday. I am clueless how to debate on the topic we chose ourselves. It is part of Communication Skills. Let’s see if you can help!
‘Every couple should have children’. I am on the pro. In short, I am supporting that everyone should have children. Tell me about it?
I know the topic is weird but well, not like there are any better choices. Ms Shamini whom herself is weird gave us weird topics, such as Sex Education, Plastic Surgery, Vegetarian and all. So, not much choice. The other team choice Sex Education.
I’ve come to a point where I am seeing things differently. Different in the sense that I don’t see things as naive as I used to. I don’t get easily cheated anymore; neither do I go around believing what others say without even checking. Coming to think about all these; I was foolish. Or perhaps the word I should use is: immature; childish; kiddy.
I am officially 18. Being 18 means a lot to me. I used to dream of growing up. Growing tall. Growing big. And I used to ask if I can emulate this and that. That was when I was young. But I no longer am. No longer I will be that young again. In another words, I am in a stage where I can’t be that naive or stupid or foolish anymore. Not that I can’t but it wont be that easy for me to be naive, in a way.
Being 18 means maturity. Since many have been questioning and commenting over the post that I wrote I am aging. I am not gonna bring the word up. Instead, maturity is what I am talking about here. Maturity to me is a symbol of growth. It symbolises that I have the ability to make decisions for myself, the ability to stand up on my own, the courage to take up challenges, the boldness to experience the outside world and so on.
Being matured here doesnt mean being old. Neither does it mean being young. Maturity in a person can come at any age for any sex. It is believed that many scientist has proven some graphs and all on maturity, but it still varies in different people. A physically petite and small girl can tell you things you can’t imagine of. Sometimes, even words adults don’t say.
In this world now, everything changes. Things are getting so different. It does affect the maturity of some people. I am saying this because I think I am considered matured since I entered 2007. I don’t know whether it is a bit young or old to really get matured. But I do think that being around people with good influences does affect growth.
I grew up in an environment where I am always around church members who cares and who conducts and brings themselves well. From there, I’ve learnt so much about life. Someone once told me, you can easily adapt anywhere you go because of the wide communication you have and the endless people you meet with different personality. I never understood that phrase till now when I really come to think about it. It is so true. Now, wherever I go, I can easily adapt.
Like it or now, we don’t have the power to decide when we want to get matured. If we do, this world will be all wild and cranky. In fact, I thank God the power doesnt lies in our hands.
I do get annoyed with real big adults who behaves like kids at times; does things like kids. Spitting. Cursing. Swearing. I forgive you if you are a kid but you’re an adult. But when I come to think about it. They probably just aren’t matured enough
Enough of yapping =D I don’t know what rubbish I am writing already. This post is messy and confusing. Tell me about it! =D
Feeling the hit that I am aging gets me thinking; maturity. Have been so busy being booked by everyone and anyone. I truly appreciate it. I have postponed 2 bookings so far. Am truly sorry. My time is real pack. More pack than you expect it to be. I thank all those who have sms-ed me, wished me, greeted me and so on. I have received close to 40 messages about birthday through SMS, countless on MSN and everyone of you has made my day a real special one.
I jst watched another 2 movies just now. Now I am dizzy.
Things you might want to stay tune here:
ME BEING SMASHED AND CRASHED WITH BEARD PAPA CREAM PUFFS VIDEO DURING ONE OF THE CELEBRATION! @ Carls Jr, Pavilion Maturity; my next post!
I am sorry that I could not update my blog on the eve of my birthday. I didn’t mean to make anyone of you wait as I saw the growing numbers of people in my blog last night from 1,600 to 1,808. Maybe you thought I’d be fast and quick enough to edit stuffs and all. But I wasn’t in the mood or perhaps, I was rather busy at night with relatives bringing me out for dinner. I have been fully booked the past few days with so many events and activities that leaves me no time to even take a nap. However, still free on Saturday and Sunday.
Yesterday was the end for my Semester 1; after finishing my Personal Development and Study Methods. I know and can declare myself as a crapping king (it truly demotivates me). The whole paper was full of crap and crap. I don’t know how I ended up finishing almost the whole booklet of answers (left 1 empty page). I was crapping my way through for the paper. With some joy and enthusiasm, I rushed my way through so that I can get out 30minutes before the exams as I don’t want to stay in the hall for so long. It was relatively a fact-elaboration-example paper. Which means all facts and pointers has to be supported by definition and examples. Examples are not too tough to crap after all, ain’t it?
We finished the paper at 12:40pm with a great relieve. As I’ve mentioned, I am fully booked. So, my coursemates booked me after the exams. I didn’t know till what time but I agreed for another appointment with relatives at 7pm. Amusing?
Those gang blindly led me to 1Utama although I thought it was just IOI Mall. Since they offered to drive me to and fro and all, wherever doesn’t matters. They pleaded that I should watch Batman again. So, I agreed. To my suprise, all my meals and movie tickets to cakes were all paid for by the 11 of them. We had lunch at Sri Melaka and then proceeded to watch Batman. Things ended at about 6.15pm. Was rushing home and thankfully my relatives were kind enough to wait for me for dinner. Reached about 7.20pm. It is seldom that I go late. But well, I didn’t do a proper count for timing.
I know I am supposed to be studying but I can’t resist telling people apart of an interesting day I’ve had today. It’s been fantastic. It is part of those line-ups to my birthday. The least you expect, the more you gain in return.
I slept till the sun was shining on my butt today. Basically until about 11.30am. It is kind of a record for me since I’ve not sleep in so long before. I slept super late last night. I can’t deny that.
Woke up and replied SuChen’s SMS. She insisted that I must meet her today. MUST! She scolded me last night when I said I was lazy. She was with her, ‘OI!!’ and so on. Well, so I decided to meet her since she was out of desperation. She said even if meet in LRT Station outside my place doesnt matter because she needs to meet me. Perhaps even exams must meet. That is really out of desperation huh?
I thought I was gonna be in trouble for cheating her or something.She refuses to let me know about why and what she is going to do.
I decided we shall not go that far. So Jaya Jusco Taman Maluri for lunch. And then after I said that, she said she already had lunch. Sadness. Well, so I went with BL since he said he is free to teman me. Had Nandos. Waited for the pretty lady for like half-an-hour. She was late. And somemore refuse to follow us to play pool after that. So, this was what she gave me. Take a good look. Don’t drool again, ya?
Many have been wondering if I really go to college to study or to enjoy myself and be merry. I’d say is both. I’ve been having fun hanging out like never before in my life. It has become a routine for me (or for us) to hang out after classes, in between classes, before classes or perhaps during classes. Thats me. I know you’d be thinking I don’t do such things but I do. I know you are so gonna get jealous with my endless amount of food pictures. Before I proceed further, talking about my OSE Paper today. I mean it wasn’t exactly as tough as I’ve expected. Pretty simple if you’d have studied the questions the lecturer gave. But humans being human, we don’t remember exact things. So, I admit I crapped. But I thank God I memorised all the pointers. Crapped was only used for my elaboration and examples. I won’t say it is easy until I get an A+ out of it. You can ignore Justine saying that my assignments are A+, good elaboration and writing skills and so on. =D
So, after the paper we went for lunch near Puchong. But the ultimate plan was to go to this Ice Shop which serves all kinds of frenzy drinks and food. It was quite a nice place to hangout. Price wasn’t THAT expensive either. Just average services. We basically chit chat and talked a lot. Spending time together as a small little group do give friendship a greater impact. I know you are waiting to see what we ordered. Don’t drool in front of your computer, please?
I don’t deny my number of visitors to this blog has been drastically declining. It is either due to my blogging style that has changed to my daily life or maybe it is due to exams. I hope it isn’t due to the exams. As you can see, I am here really carefree as if I am not sitting for an examination tomorrow. In fact, tomorrow is my toughest paper. I do hate the subject to be honest. Do or die. I have to sit for it and I know nothing about it. It is definitly something I don’t enjoy studying compared to othe subjects like Personal Development and so on.
Perhaps I just enjoy crapping out common sense answers for common sense subjects such as Personal Development or English. It is not something like; ‘You know, you do; you don’t, you skip’ situation. Perhaps I enjoy some of those moment. Organisation is so much of facts facts and facts. I’d compare this subject to history due to it’s heavy amount of theorys and laws in it. You can trust my words I am not ready. Assignments can only help me 30&. Nothing more; nothing less.
I know it is my fault that I sleep endlessly and kept watched movie serials. But it is just some entertainment. I did write notes. I know compared to many of my coursemates would not even have bothered. But at least I have notes but I know it wont bring me anywhere far. It is way more than just notes to get an A. I know my coursemates who are probably reading this would be studying like mad. Or perhaps they are gonna read this post after my OSE paper tomorrow.
Apparently, I’ve been drinking a lot of water too these few days. I wonder why. And I have been skipping meals whenever I am home. Yes. You are right. It is me skipping my meals. But well, sleeping has a more priority compared to eating. I know you do agree! I don’t know if it is because of the computer, but my eyes are really painful. I have rested my eyes for like hours. Perhaps my eyes are the ones that makes me tired. Not my body.
I wished that my new timetable will remain the same as it is. And maybe more breaks. However, I am seeing new lecturers name that has bad track record with my coursemates from other intakes. So, I don’t know if it is the same for my course. But it is not for me to decide. It is for the college to decide. I’d just go with the flow.
I do feel like I am ageing. You guys must be laughing. In a few days’ time, I’d be 18 and I am legally legal. Seeing kids around me makes me think that I am old. Really old, in fact. But what choice do I have anyways? It is not a choice. 18 years of blessings is quite something I should give thanks for. =)
Added additional joy and happiness into my day. Was amazed time flies when you are enjoying someone’s presence.
When I reached home, I receive an SMS from him. This time was from Sarveen. Saying things that he seldom says just made me laugh to myself. And the things he said was comforting. I really do appreaciate that. And how the heck you would feel that you are neglecting me? Never. You won’t dare anyways. He always laugh, laugh and laugh for no reasons. I wanted to post his pics but I don’t have any with me.
And yeah, a day of great feeling. A day of great joy. They make my life meant so much more. I feel appreciated; i felt loved. I thank you people (the 3) for all your time and care and concern. It made my day. Undeniably, one of my best days in the past few months. =)
Yeah. SC. I know you are so gonna complain. Wait. One day a post just for the Preety Gorgeous Chuah Su Chen. =D Just some random stuffs from me:I am gonna be LEGALLY LEGAL in like a few days time. It really feels that I am age-ing. Not a very good sign indeed. I start to think that yesterday was a great start to my week.YOU CAN GIVE WITHOUT LOVING, YOU CANNOT LOVE WITHOUT GIVING
Somehow, somewhere. I don’t know why my pictures are not in the correct and desired order. Okay yeah. I am lazy to re-drag all over again.. Eyes tired after editing the pictures one by one.
We went to Sunway after Malaysian Studies Final Exams today at BBJ Examinations Hall. Annoying place. Anyways, we went to Gasoline for some unknown reasons to celebrate Lennard’s 18th birthday. Another one of us is legally legal. I suppose everything was as usual apart from Adrian and 2 of he guys decided that they want to camwhore. We were all laughing like freaks. And yeah, they sure did.
Apart from that, the part where each of us at a big piece of cake to finish it off was disgusting. We so don’t like cakes now, even if it was Secret Recipe. It was just so full. And yeah, I did not finish it. But I don’t want to push myself either. Pointless, isn’t it?
Pictures will tell you more. I’ve enough of crapping here. I crapped with the gang for almost 4 hours in Sunway today. And yeah, people asks me again and again, Am I going to college t study of to play? I wonder too.. =D
The word SIGNIFICANCE came into my mind today. Have you ever thought if you are a significant person? Or have you ever pondered if you are significant in the eyes of someone? I used to be so significant in some people’s life but it no longer is as time passes by. You know when you are significant. And you know when you are not significant. The time when you are NOT SIGNIFICANT is when something happened. Is when some disastrous things happens in your life or someone elses lives. Ironically, nothing lasts forever in this world. Everything in this world will fade eventually. I do think that being having significance is important. I wished I could maintain how significant I used to be in someone’s life. I want to be significant in their life. All I hold on to is I know that I am significant in the eyes of the LORD. Well, textbook answers says that. Sometimes I do ponder myself, How can I be more significant? Is significance that important? My mind needs to stop wondering and focus on my Malaysian Studies finals tomorrow. I am halfway through the Comfort Women topic. Argh.
Had a long and dreadful night last night I’d say. Came home and all tired. Was putting my sister to bed. And the moment I thought she slept, I climbed into my double-decker bed. Just the moment I lied down. My sister from below started calling my name. She started crying. I went all the way down again. She cried for an hour or so. Made foolish promises such as buying her Famous Amos, Baskin Robbins and so on(Reminder: she’s just a 9 year old kid) just to made her sleep. She misses mum. She misses dad. I too can say I miss them too. She cried for so long that I had to lie beside her sleeping on the floor. Her tears made me wanna cry too but well, still controllable. Sleeping on the floor is no joke. Trust me. And when she finally slept, I went back to sleep. Just the moment I was deeply asleep, she woke me up for the toilet. Wells, had to go out and all with her once again and tried sleeping again. I slept till 9am till morning which was quite a record because I seldom wakes up this late. Anyways, about 2 weeks more to go.
But today, I made her sleep early. She is soundly asleep now. Hope to get some test before FINALS commences tomorrow.
