(aini and Snowstorm) yup its kind of hilarious! and guess what.. I managed to read your tags due to some weird chance?! cranky comp. Still cant solve the problem. Thanks for your help though. :D I appreciate the emails. :))
in the midst of exams, and dying. you know people say that jc is the worst time of your life, its the hardest you'll ever work and stuff. but people here don't agree leh. sigh. guess just not used to consistent work.
but anyways... Econs and Anthro are finally over. Chem and Math to go!! :)
Studying for Econs was quite fun, cos we all went to the undergrad library ( aka UGLI) to mug econs and alas it was time for dinner and our tummies started rumbling. So I went to lucky kitchen, which is some chinese take out place to ta bao stuff for everybody. Then I sneaked it up to the library. hahah! it was the ultimate breaching of library ettiquette la. And the best thing was that after everybody saw us eating, all the food started coming out. hahahah...
And the librarian even walked past our table and we were like... shoot. all stunned. but he also never say anything. hahha. quite funny. We were damn scared that he will like go down and call security to remove us or something. so we ate as fast as possible to try to "get rid of evidence" and we opened the first fortuen cookie, and guess what it said?
"You will soon be the centre of attention."
HOW ominous and apt is that???
we just burst out laughing.
More breaching of library ettiquette.

First things first...
ANNOUNCEMENTS: (was very tempted to say good morning saints, this is jean, announcements for today.. haha)
I CAN'T READ MY TAGBOARD!! SO I CANT REPLY/READ UR TAGS! IF ANYBODY KNOWS HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
I went to watch The Prestige that day, really good movie to watch... screws with you mind. Felt super freaked out after the movie. Almost like a horror movie. ok la.. maybe I have a low threshold for such things.. but I really think its worth watching. I shan't spoil the show for you.. GO WATCH IT! FREAKY... how much are you willing to sacrifice to achieve whatever you want? Who will you hurt along the way?
JIA YOU FOR As!! I know there are a few papers left. HAng in there...!

Im finally blogging after such a long time. I think this event in my life deserves a entry.
I left for Chicago with a group of friends on the 14th. We left in two cars and here's a picture of one of the cars:
The reliable Chevvy!
Its really small and tiny and once you hit a speed of 60mph you feel as if you're taking off... but... don't judge it by its size ok? It's super reliable. Lasted us all the way from ann arbor to chicago and back.
Chicago is a big city, the architecture is really pretty, it feels like a scene from batman or something. Majestic, old buildings, bridges over blue rivers. really really pretty.
On the first day, we went to navy pier and china town. Navy pier itself was alright, but the view was beautiful. We ate dinner at a restaurant called Penang at Chinatown. The boss is so obviously Malaysian, he speaks with the malaysian "qiang". Dinner was super good and we finally had nicely cooked rice! not rice that is half cooked and icky.
Day two: Shedd's aquarium.
The view from shedd's aquarium:
Super nice right? The chicago skyline and the waters are not from the sea, its from lake michigan so its like blue and clear.
I didn't really take a lot of pictures inside the aquarium, cannot use flash and my camera is useless without flash because I have unsteady hands so.. if you can imagine a cross between sentosa and a fish pet shop. yup. Displays of fish, reef displays. The only thing different was the underground observatory where you can see dolphins and beluga whales swimming around.
You know... considering the size of the beluga whales.. their enclosure is a hell lot smaller than the dolphins. Discrimination just because the dolphins look cuter. tsk tsk tsk.
After the aquarium we went to eat at the cheesecake factory, and then we split up. Some of us went to watch a play and the others went to the University of Chicago. The play was called Sheer Madness. It was pretty interesting, the plot's something like cluedo. So someone gets murdered in a barber shop and everybody's a suspect. The audience has to ask questions and come to a conclusion about who they think the murderer is and the actors will act according. So its kind of interactive and spontaneous. Interesting concept because every show is going to be different. Later...They surprised me with ice cream and balloons when we got back to the hotel! Thanks guys!
Day 3: Factory Outlet.
Went shopping at the factory outlet. Well there's nothing special about the factory outlet la. all factory outlets are almost the same. anyways.. on the ride back, something happened: I guess its not something that I wanted it to happen. but now that it did, I think there were a lot of other things that didn't happen that Im so thankful for. God was really watching out for us that day, we were this close to perhaps losing somebody.
so we had to stay an extra night in chicago at the red roof inn, it wasn't too bad, got to catch up on sleep there except that the beds there are lousy! and I woke up with a neck ache. I guess for this trip, it was really tiring on the guys, they had to drive, plan the programme, and settle all the paperwork. The girls.. we did contribute also ok? we helped to keep the guys awake when they were driving. :) Fall break was definitely quite an experience for us all.

first blog entry since I left for ann arbor!
The weather today was crummy, it was raining the whole day and I didn't bring an umbrella. So the temperature is also dropping quite significantly day by day. But the locals here are still wearing sleeveless shirts and stuff. pei fu pei fu.
I have to start registering for classes soon... but Im quite scared that I won't be able to get into the classes that I want. The system is really stupid. Firstly, you have to meet with an advisor to discuss about certain stuff. Then you have to meet with someone called a peer advisor and do a online selection of the courses, but this still doesn't guarantee you a space in the class. Then after all this is done.. finally you can meet with the advisor again to registor. And my slot for the registering is like super late la. quite scared.
got locked out of my dorm today. feel quite dumb. so now I only have one more free pass before I have to pay to get into my room if I get locked out again. sigh.
I took a few photos of the campus and room. will upload it some other time..
its kind of late now...

Jan taught me how to do a bit of pilates today.
her facial expression when she does pilates is super funny.
Should have recorded it. :(
tried to go find my uni textbooks today.
Got a chance to use the nus feeder bus service.
The lady said get on the A2 and after the bus turns a left, stop at the second bus stop.
We sat and waited for the bus to turn left, we never even see any bus stops. then the bus stopped at some hostel and the uncle said, "No more!"
We got on and off along the same bus route like 3 times before finding the bookshop. sigh.
Then in the end, still don't have.

THANKS FOR THAT WONDERFUL WONDERFUL EVENING!
Oh ya, to all those who appeared in that video, and gave me those words of encouragment,Thanks!!!
someone in the newspaper said today, It's difficult writing opinions on a blog, because when you make an opinion or take a position on something, you risk being wrong, and being wrong is painful. I guess this explains how I felt when I first started this blog. After so many years of trying to overcome the fear of making mistakes, I still dread the feeling. I don't know why?
1 and a half more weeks to go.
