Mid-Exam Post!

Yes i know i haven’t been putting things up on this space for a very very long time already – almost a month. I thank all those who have been regular visitors and the occasional random comment from people i don’t even know. 😛

It’s the middle of exams and for ONCE i would like to proclaim the fact that i DON’T HAVE 6 PAPERS TO TAKE THIS SEMESTER. Some of the arts students i know are complaining about your 5-module-workload so let me say this: we engineers take 6 BY DEFAULT. And before you start gloating about how much more arts students have to read with all your notes and readings and whatnot (thereby somehow substantiating your claims that arts students are smarter, as if amounts of readings measured one’s intelligence), let me tell you that i am absolutely certain that MY textbooks/readings/notes/papers outweigh YOUR textbooks/readings/notes/papers in ANY semester.

Yes i know i’m generalizing, but as is the case when i’m generalizing, i don’t care. If you’re not one of those people i’m referring to above then all’s well and done for you – i’m only referring to a specific few people. If you -think- you’re one of those people above, then instead of posting a rude comment about my views and how inaccurate they are and all that (which i will most obviously delete), perhaps you should consider what causes me and you to think that way of ourselves first, then decide whether your comment is worth posting or not.

There, that’s it for the round of rants.

Exams have been tough so far, but that’s mainly because the first two papers (which have passed) are the tougher ones, and the last two (thursday and next monday) are the ones that require more common sense. It’s a little funny yet disturbing to know that engineers actually have to take this module teaching us how not to take bribes, cheat our clients, be socially and morally responsible and so on and so forth. The implications are obvious – and you don’t even have to believe what you write to score; you just have to SOUND like you believe. Considering the lecturers in Engin, that’s not too difficult to do. Not that this module is going to be a major problem for me though – the only problem is all the theories and stuff like that. Come to think of it, the whole module is theory. Bah.

But i digress. It’s been a bumpy road so far, with so many things i want to do (and yes, so little time, we’ve all heard that story before, haven’t we?) that at times i just need to take a break from everything. Note that i say everyTHING and not everyONE because people deserve care – you can’t shut out everyone just because you want to be alone, that’s not fair to those in need.

And speaking of those in need….<rant> for goodness’ sake if you’re only going to insult and push me around on an everyday basis, don’t come running to me in the wee hours of the morning asking for help and making it sound like it’s my duty to guide you in the entire sem’s syllabus. I’m glad to help, but that kind of behaviour is simply inexcusable, especially when you demand that i help you and whine at me even when i do. Grow up. </rant>

In case you haven’t noticed, yes i’ve been ranting a lot. There have been people who have been climbing all over me and i do try to calm myself down, but when request turns to demand and joking turns to whining, i honestly don’t feel like taking any of that, especially not from 21-year-olds (and above). Goodness, behave your age if you want people to treat you as such. One would think that at that age you’d know when to be serious and when to joke around, but playing manja with everyone when we’re having a SERIOUS discussion doesn’t help. Acting cute doesn’t relieve tension with us either, so cut it out.

Back to my normal self! Anwanwanw i tried drawing again the other day and boy i need practice. Haha..you’d think when you pick up skills like that they stay with you…and technically they do, but only the theory – the actual execution leaves much to be desired. 😀

So here i am, taking a break for the rest of the day after having a paper in the morning, and two more papers to go (as i mentioned above). Did some admin stuff for JP trip, and will continue with that after the papers.

I’m so looking forward to the holidays.

  1. haha, haven’t spoken to u in a while. anyway all the best for your exams and enjoy your holidays after that yeah? 😀
