Reflections & Aspirations

525,600 minutes... how do you measure a year?

2005 has been a momentous year for me... a new phase in education with the introduction of polytechnic life, and the passing of my paternal grandmother. Looking back in this final post of the year, I realised that I haven't changed much. Still the same guy who says "yes" to everything, gets himself involved in everything, and is too serious on everything. The one who is most likely to get taken advantage of by other people. Not that I don't mind. I just don't express it much unless you make me mad.

Looking forward to 2006, there's Year 2 of polytechnic coming up. I hope I have sufficient energy for my studies ahead. To DMAT peeps, I might appear to be "strict/harsh" on some of you, but it's only because I hate slacking (i.e. I want to get things done, ASAP, if possible). To all my other friends around me, thanks for supporting and encouraging me through 2005.To my family and relatives, thank you for the care and concern showered on me... all the best for the coming year. To my maternal grandma, may God sustain you with good health ahead. To the reader of my blog, happy 2006 ahead!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2006 to all!

Assignment Frenzy

Just changed my blog layout (a little). I've just finished all my E-Learning Week assignments... crazy pile of work that had to be done. But I'm not relaxed yet... neither should anyone in class be. Look - we got a concert in less than 2 months' time so you guys better be serious in rehearsing. Doing everything at the eleventh hour (last-minute) will just kill you. Don't be a foolish mugger. Then there's the publicity for the concert. I've rushed you all for a million times for the designs - thank you Yuan Jie, Louis and Wee Kiat for the posters but how about the rest? Especially the ticket designs. We need to let the school print so it's damn urgent - by early January we have to send all the materials off for printing already. Yeah, happy holidays my foot. Term 4 (which is gonna be the most rushed term YET) starts Jan 2 2006 and all the tests and major project work which will determine our final grades are coming up. I would predict in advance that this year would be my worst Christmas/New Year yet. Some people and some things are not helping. Read my previous post if you don't know what the heck I'm talking about. Disappointed to see that much of the class is still hooked on idiotic computer games like MapleStory and involved in relationship problems. It hinders group work so much that a disabled person might be able to contribute much more (or at least be COMMITTED). And I don't freaking care about part-time work outside during these 3 years... my stand is you wanna work, you might as well expel yourself and go work. You didn't realise that you came into a FULL-TIME diploma, eh? Time to resort your areas of commitment. I've got lots more to say but I guess I'm ending here because I don't want to spoil the NEW year.
