Final exams blues

This 2 weeks will be my final final exams, no more exams for me, that is...assuming i pass everything. Knowing my exams are coming, i didn't feel any sense of urgency to study, no feeling of "oh shit....its coming soon..." not the shit, the exam.
basically wasted a whole week bumming in front of the com playing DOTA while sometimes squeezing abit of my thesis in. Thesis was due 23/4, which was the day of my first paper, ended up pulling an all nighter to finish my thesis, left it halfway to go for a 9am paper, with only 5-10 minutes of study time. Exam ended at 11am, rushed back home n took a 1hr nap, then woke up to continue my thesis, was supposed to be due at 12pm, but someone texted me saying it was due 5pm. Confident that i could hav it done by 4, i took a nap. I seem to be overconfident on alot of things, but just dont know when i should be doing work. Ended up panicking, calling my supervisor to tell him i might not make it, called the office to ask, thank goodness the staff were staying til 6pm, i could have it there by then. Printed it, took an hour to print, rushed down to uni to bind it and handed it in. Office lady said i wasnt the lsat one, but i was almost the last one...dunno what she meant. That's one hurdle over.
Have another paper the next day. Went home to study the latest tips i got on SMS, (Thanks to technology) but largely ignored the tutorials and some stuff...
At the next exam, which was super long title "Industrial Organics and Natural Products Chemistry" (hey not that long after all, maybe cos i type it instead of handwriting) , i was basically writing whatever rubbish i could think of, last minute tips did help a tad.but not enough, felt like shite. Might as well prepare to pay rm100 for resitting the paper. Its my bloody final semester man, why aren't I feeling any sense of urgency at all? no drive to study, no initiative, no nothing. I keep telling my self i wont be like this next time, duh! there is no next time, i'd be graduated by then!
monday, tuesday papers done, following thurs' 26/4 paper, Polymer Chemistry. Heavily tipped by our lecturer, we should, or "I" should be doing some good, but no...on Wednesday i slept the day away, only to finally start studying at 8pm. til 3am. Got myself distracted very frequently, some movie, then Heroes, then...Champions league match between Chealse n Liverpool, not that i'm much of a footie fan, just easily distracted. Slept soon after, was planning to wake at 7am, to continue studying, but just couldn't drag myself n pry my heavy eyelids open. Snooze for another 1 hr, woke at 9, did some studying then it was time to go.
Fetched my girlfriend, was contemplating a quick lunch or just some bun while studying abit mroe before the paper, ended up having KFC. reached uni about 145pm, exam to start at 2pm. studied abit then entered the hall late as usual.
With all those tips, I should have made some good. Ended up bombing the thing and writing even more crap. great. must have been a dissapointment to the lecturer. just hope i pass this paper and don'thave to take a supplementary paper for this
Next week is the final paper, the most shittiest one, "Advanced Coordination Chemistry". failed the course work, so i'll have to score like mad to pass this subject, hope all goes well, i have exactly one more week to go.

Broken floor in class, just about after 2 years of studying, shoddy work and scrimping on cement somehow allowed gas to build up under the floor tiles. One fine morning the gas decided its time to show, n popped the floor tiles to escape. Gave some classmates a shock, now many parts of my uni hav cracked tiles too. Not because of some fatty bom bom stomping around tho

Cannibal lecture!

Was feeling pretty restless, wanted to shout/ scream/ break or throw things around but couldn't. Was up most of the nite preparing for my presentation slides for "Persuasive Speech". A speech less than 5 minutes took me about 4 hours to prepare. Then i slept from 6am to 9am, got myself ready really slowly, arrive just in time for Public Speaking class.At that time, the 1st speaker was jsut about to start, my timing not too bad la. I was the 9th. While sitting there i just wanted to do something. Was sitting with SH, cracking stupid jokes while the speakers change one by one. Sh turn was before me, i think he was number 3. After that i just didn't know what to do, and he's a nice guy to bully, so i bit him, yeah i BIT him, right on top of the shoulder blade. Felt a little good, scared him tho.
After lunch SH had the misfortune of sitting beside me again. I just got back my Final Year Project (FYP)Report. lost of red ink insdie. Supervisor told me to repeat a particular experiment. WAARGGHHHHHH ROOOOARRRRR. couldn't actually do that, was in class. SH saw me report and was laughing away, which led to me biting him on the arm again. this time was harder, n a wee bit longer, had to let go before he started screaming in class and getting the lecturers attention. Felt a little better. The texture and strength of human flesh is interesting, i worry i might become a cannibal just to really taste what human meat is like.
Suprisingly, that 3 hrs of sleep lasted me til 1am the next day. Normally i would be asleep by class.
Semester is ending, exams are coming, reports are due soon, i'm gonna graduate too, anyone volunteer to be bitting by me? Need a place to run away to relax before the exams. I just want straight 8hrs of sleep.cant seem to get that, too much noise at home +  i'm a really light sleeper.

Muse Concert KL

I went to the Muse concert on Sunday 25th Feb 2007. Drove to the Stadium Merdeka, parked my car, walked out with my gf and saw the banners adverstising the concert saying "FOR NON-MUSLIMS AGE 18 AND ABOVE ONLY". Yeah right, as if the people of this country are so abiding. True to what i said, er, can't actually say it straightforward, so its like this, about 90% of the people present for the concert had denounced their religion...
The concert was sponsored by Tiger beer, hence the non-muslims and over 18 suggestion thingy, but how are they going to control the crowd? And if they really did enforce it, there wouldn't be many people going for the concert.
We lined up from 6pm til 730pm before being let into the stadium. Sat inside there trying to entertain ourselves for the next hour or so.
The crowd sitting in front of the stage must have been blind or somewhat, everytime a GWAILO walks onto the stage the would scream and hoot...guess they can't actually remember what the band members look like. Those people walking around were just technicians and stage hands damn it. But it was entertaining watching the crowd. People watching at concert, not too bad. You get to see all sorts of attention seekers walking around in midriff bearing tees, weird hair, Westernized attitudes, speaking of which, this malay girl sitting behind me was somehow so irritated at the clueless screaming crowd infront of the stage she complained loudly to her friend beside her with some accent froman unknown western country : "WHATS THEIR MOTHERFUCKING PROBLEM!". ok, raise eyebrow, whats new eh? next she speaks to her friend in the most erm kampung-ish that was about the only thing she could say in english...I just hate people with lost accents
The concert started at about 9pm. There were no warm up bands like the previous INXS concert, thank goodness for that. Muse came up the stage and started their thing immediately to the delight of the crowd. Everyone was soaking it in. A large portion of the crowd knew the lyrics to the songs and were singing along to it like a giant karaoke party. Not even the national anthem was sung with such spirit.
All in all, the concert was entertaining, little problems with the sound system, the music was louder than the voice, so I couldn't hear much. Wasn't such a big fan of Muse anyhow, my gf got me free tickets. So everything they sang was pretty much alien to me. HaHa. Too tirred to continue now...will sleep first and if I want, will continue what I'ved left out of this post.

Happy Chinse New Year! Year of the PIG!!

Gong Xi Fa Chai rakan sekalian yang sanggup membazirkan masa membaca blog aku...ok that enuf b.m for me, all i can manage is bahasa pasar...
Spent the CNY eve having steamboat dinner with my family at home, while my gf had hers at her place. As usual I sat my ass in front of the com and played DOTA til quite late, about 4am, then went to sleep. Was awoken by my younger bro shouting "NBA ALLSTARS!"  a few times around 9am...there goes my sleep. Since it was ALLSTAR weekend, and a holiday, i drag myself out to the living room and watched NBA. Nothing spectacular tho, skills challenge, 3 point shootout, running race of an old referee against fat Charles Barkley (Barkley so out of shape, tho he won, he was breathless and it was funny watching him wave the interviewer away cos he had no breath to speak...even tho it was a few minutes after he had won...)
Slamdunk competition...bla bla bla, nothing interesting, seems like all the nice stuff has been done by other people already.
After the show was over...back to sleep. From 1pm til 4pm. Was a busybody here n there til dinner time.
Called my gf to see what she was doing, she asked me to go over, i said no, she got unhappy, put down the phone. I didn't give a shit...then after dinner i got a call to go over the a friends house for some gambling. Called my gf to tell her i'm going out, was recieved with mucho hostility...ended up having a SMS fight that lasted until the next day.
Seems like the chemistry we had between us is fading, if not faded already. I study chemistry, but my chemistry is not working....failure...
will call her again, and see how it goes, either we continue now, or its over

Hole in foot

For the psat few weeks, there was a swelling on the sole of my left foot. I sorta assumed it was a corn growing, its was a little irritating and painful if pressure was applied to the spot. Just a moment ago I realised it wasn't bothering me anymore, so i decided to pick at it. The skin came off, so i continued picking at it and using a nail clipper to clip away the skin around it. There was a cavity when the skin was removed, so i looked in and sorta saw something shiny inside the crater. I immediately grabbed the sharpest narrowest thingy nearby, which was a screwdriver from a Jewellers set and poked at it. The flat shiny thing moved, it wasn't a layer of skin on the inside of the crater, i hobbled over to my room and got my tweezers from my Swiss Army Knife out, and picked at it again. Turns out to be some tiny piece of plastic lodged in my skin. Its about 2mm long, and pointy.
I must haved some how stepped onto it and it peirced thru my skin, at that time to deep and small to notice.

Now that it's out, its great, cos i'll be taking part in the Fly.FM - MalayMail BBall challenge this Satruday, Jan 27. Wish my team luck.
