Self updates

This week has been a long long one and yes I know it’s not the weekend yet but hey, nurses schedules are pretty much hay wired and we work so much that we don’t even know it’s the weekend already.

I’m pulling my hair already because I failed to do what I set out to do in the beginning. Study.

All that procrastination bout yadafadabananajinglehoodlumdoodledobut still I only managed to write notes about the first chapter and still have a hard time understanding it. Gosh I’m not smart or am I just purely lazy. Perhaps both. I can only blame myself for not being disciplined enough to get things done, putting them into perspective. I have dunked my head into law and ethics so much so that research has been neglected. There is a test in September and I totally forgot about it. See!!! Damn! I must work it out!

If you have any tips, feel free to let me know. I understand mind mapping would help. But wordy stuff like law and such can we really draw pictures? Experienced people please share your studying methods.

I realiZe that I study better at night. Or that I’m more awake at night. But all I have is my bed. I don’t have a study table or anything else. In the end, I fall asleep halfway into my studies. This has to change! I cannot be that lazy asshole anymore !!

Apart from that, I just got my new toy, a hybrid. Took it for a ride yesterday evening and it felt nice. I guess apart from cycling, I need to study too! No more Internet at home!

Gosh as I’m typing away in the mrt, there is this guy banging his head against the window of the train. Scolding vulgarities and talking to I dunno who. Perhaps he might end up in stomp? I duno, it’s not my business and I shall not butt in.

So please help me! I really need all the help I can get.

God bless.

Catching up with my L4D2 buddies

The last time I met them, I was terribly upset and disappointed. Firstly, my computer had given me problems. 10-15minutes and I have yet to enter the game. Where as my 2 brothers have already gone in. So I had to change computers. Later on, I felt left behind by them. I didn’t enjoy the game.

This time, I met them both on separate occasions. J met me during one of my off days and we went for a ‘killing spree’ 2 times that day. It felt much better because we had to rely on each other, and the AIs were good generally but at the end of the day, you’d prefer a friend who is looking after your back. I’d want that, without a doubt.

Playing with V was quite last minute because he has to study and work at the same time and indeed it is no easy peasy task. Thank God for him, school
Is about to end and he can focus on his work. Playing with V, felt different. We had quite a few down moments but we could talk and get by each and every horde at the end of the day. Other than that one moment at the airport where hordes would come non stop. He survived that, I didn’t.

Both have different styles of playing. J would be more gung Ho and melee his way through. V would wait with you and seek permission before going through. I appreciate both playing styles because I am a bit of both of them myself. I love to chiong and slice my way through. On the other hand, I
Love the team work displayed when we become ‘untouchable’.

Perhaps we played different difficulty levels as well. But at the end of it all, I dare say I enjoyed the spree with both of them very much so.

Now all I need, is one more buddy to make it all 4 of us. Guess I’ll have to wait.

My second climb, Bukit Timah Hill

My second climb up Bukit Timah Hill was definitely much better than the first. This time I knew that there was an initial steep slope and subsequent paths ahead was more flat and gradual. It felt more like a piece of cake. But of cause, I only set foot upon the normal route. I didn’t walk off the beaten track. It did feel different though the last time I attempted with J.

Dear friend Heileen was my company this week. What she said was true, she was like donkey and I was shrek lol. Having something to talk about would keep her entertained and alive, if not she would plug her ears and listen to her music. I did tell her that it ruined the nature but she needed it to move on. Okay I guess, we all have our own ways of handling things.

This time, we walked the other side, toward the quarry. It was nice and quiet, just the way I like it, no noise but the sound of trees, birds and insects. Better yet, no mosquitos! To me, that’s essential.

I’ll post a picture for your eyes to feast upon.
