Testing Times

Now, I know its been a long time since I last kept myself updated here. Well, ever since the second semester started things were starting to fall out of place.Just when I had barely managed to pull myself together, the world around me started tearing itself to pieces again. Now, I don't know about everyone but the way I study is I tend to overexert myself for the first half of the semester to try to be a step or two ahead of the syllabus at all times so that the lecture will just be a refresher afterwards. I do this because:-
1. I kind of understand that I have fiery enthusiasm whenever a new semester begins but it dies down before I can go through the whole semester. This means I'm kinda short fused, losing interest if I don"t see a quickly rewarding outcome. Hence, over-studying in the start benefits me as I've covered the entire syllabus before the boredom falls into place, and
2.It's actually very rewarding to feel like you fully understand what the lecturer i…

Recipe For Disaster

Before I tell you about the time I was home alone that one day during the semester break, let me tell you about my first week back in college for the second wave of subjects. I'm only taking four subjects this time around and since it's a long semester this is probably going to be a pretty laid back time for me. In my free time now, I'm picking up lots of things to help kill time - sketching, learning card tricks, adopting a few French words, spending the evenings one sitcom episode at a time. So far, the first week of this semester just rolled out fine. Even got to sit together with a closely knitted few friends watching a film together from his laptop early this evening. Stranger Things, good stuff. Can't wait for a second season upcoming Halloween X)

Oh, so as promised, the time I was home alone for the sem break. Now, there is a reason why my parents almost never leave me home alone unless they've taken certain safety precautions: I can't actually cook anyt…

A Spark of Flame

So, here, it begins again. I try best as I can to write something down now as I will be returning time and again for memories. Perhaps this is something I cannot live without after all.

How my life has turned out so far: -

                - I've finished my high school education. Fantastic. Now I don't have to see it again. Given the chance though, this is a phase of my life I'd like to relive if possible. I wish I made more use of the time last 5 years I spent here.

                - Despite what I'm saying, I've gotten pretty good results for my SPM examinations (which is really a Malaysian version of an O-Levels equivalent) and landed myself in Foundations at a local university which I must say has turned out much better than my high school days so far.

                - Just went through the first semester of Foundations and am currently going through a semester break which I do not know how to make use of hence ending up here. But, really, it came up in a conv…
