I dont know what to make of myself when i refused to print 30 plus over pages of Anthropology notes just because the exam was next day and i could read it off my computer screen. In the end i relied on pseudo highlighting with the help of Microsoft Words and almost burn the trackpad from all the scrolling from Page 1 to 37.
Am i being ecology friendly ? Or maybe i am plain stingy and refused to spend that additional 5 bucks on printing credits.
Whatever it is, i got my Anthro final marks back and all i can say is that i am a genius over here in Thunder Bay.
Yes, this entry is to celebrate my first ever 80 plus marks in my Uni academic life thus far. It could be my first and only opportunity to brag about such grades. I am never near that back in Boonlay NTU.
2 down, 2 more papers to go !
The other best part of being on exchange starts Tomorrow.
First day of exams at Lakehead starts tomorrow at 6pm. Note to self: I just need to PASS
Inserts evil laughter.
10 more days to Toronto. 50 more days to Home baby !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good Friday holiday weekend was, well, not much of a holiday. The entire Thunder Bay transformed into a ghost town literally and all our plans for the weekends were brutally thwarted. Everywhere was closed. Almost as if everyone stopped working and went back home to hunt for easter eggs in their garden. It was also our last weekend before we get down to studying for our Finals which start this Saturday. I can only think of 7 letters – SPSBSJP
The only thing that is keeping me going for the next 2 weeks is leaving this place to start our world tour. Though booking our accommodations and settling our transport from places to places have been nothing but a BIG FAT BITCH, i am still excited. Cos that will also mean that i can start my Count Down to home ! But in the mean time and back to reality, there is many many things for me to do.
One, of course will be studying. My just-pass and i-on-exchange attitude for the past 12 weeks will indeed be put to test this time. My pencil box has been sitting in that corner since Week 1. Le sigh.
Two, i have to start packing all my winter barangs to ship back home. Half of my winter wear i brought over were never worn. Tmddd. And as usual, i have to face to velly expensib consequence of my over zealous style of packing cos shipping is just so mother father expensib !! I probably have to go through a series of serious dilemmas because i cannot exceed 10kg. I need He Mama, i really do.
And of course not to mention all the administrative stuff i got to settle like my transcript and whatnots. And and and we have yet to settle all our travelling accommodations and plans !! Can you hear my exclamation marks ?
Okay it’s 2am. I promise myself earlier nights from now on. Time for me to watch The Office now before i curl up like a furball under my blanket. Hope i can see the deer outside my window again.
Last paper in 9 hours’ time.
Not much of a relief or celebration for i know i’m gonna Pay when results are back. Hurhur.
B B B B But, one thing to look forward to now is 11th July 2009 Saturday 8:00PM.
The last time i woke up at 630AM was probably 1997 and it was the most painful thing to do this morning. Anything for True Diligence. HAH.
COM208 module, i would say, is the Mother of bitch for this semester. Studying for it was like understanding Physics when i was Sec 4 and after this morning’s True Diligence, i seriously thought i saw Hope. But CRAP IT, the paper was a little more than a letdown. RAHH. Never mind that, i then dragged the tired soul back and continued True Diligence on all things Caffeine for the 2nd paper of the day. Media in America, ole.
MAJOR LETDOWN #2. It was zomg BAD. Like bad jokes like of Bad. Like channel 5 sitcoms kind of Bad. Omgggg. And i think i can go on with this..
And I could be at Rachael Yamagata’s concert like now.
Boohoo : (
9am – COM208 Fundamentals of Research
5pm – CS803 Media In America
I need to say a prayer.
This morning or should i say Afternoon, was woken up by the most annoying and painful noise of people cutting grass outside my room. God knows why in the world did they take So Long to shave off the grass. And i mean, the grass area that surrounds my room is not exactly that Large. I swear beauty sleep was disturbed for 3 hours or more. It was a great way to wake up to a Wednesday afternoon and then you can sense the sarcasm.
And oh. The end-semester stress is here to strike again once more. With the self-induced scare of downloading past year exam papers,(an absolute portrayal of Kiasu-ism of me) going through the exams questions was accompanied with the deepest and most intense Frowns I can ever make. Less than 4 weeks to go before the exams. I need Hope.
Aside from all That, i am very happy to discover Bitter:Sweet from one of the L Word episodes.
Anyone who is free and has nothing better to do should go check it out. The Mating Game track is most awesome. Makes you want to be James Bond for awhile.
