Failed my combined humanities. I don't know what happened with social studies; lack of time played a big part in killing my marks too. Bloody fuck.
Phone's working again =D.
Just some random fun fact: My handphone line got disconnected. So don't sms or call me as I can't reply to any of it.
Spent the entire day out, but don't think it was a total waste of time, because I learnt a couple of things today:
My music addiction is far exceeding the depth of my pockets, I fear. Buying 2 CDs in 3 days is no joke. And I still want to buy another album. 60 bucks in 2 weeks? Ouch. The things that I do for good music. Sigh.
It's a lazy Saturday afternoon. Hit the gym this morning with Ivan and Jared; brunch after that, before going all the way to Compass Point to get a pair of goalie's gloves. Went there since Hougang Mall sold crap, and Jared lived near the place. The quality of cheaper goalkeeper's gloves and the range available is getting horrible, I swear. Came home and had a nap. Shall play some Halo after this. Why the hell am I reiterating what I did today and what I'm going to do like some mindless regugitating zombie? Hmm.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. So close, I can't wait. Once tomorrow's exam is over, it's marathon gaming and soccer for me. It's been too long since I last played Halo 2. Too long. Back to studying, but this time at a leisurely pace a couple of days after this temporary solace.
Am so going to flunk A Maths. Unless there's a moderation of 30+ marks, of course, which is about as likely as seeing a pig fly in Antarctica on February 31st.
Physics practical today is a goner. How I managed to get 20+cm for my len's focal length, I'll never know. I would also like to reiterate the fact that tomorrow's A Maths test will be a farce for me. Miracles just don't happen when it comes to studies, you need to be prepared and I'm not.
Second post of the day! I seem rather free, don't I? I'm having Physics practical tomorrow so I don't really have to slave my arse off studying. A Maths paper 2 is on Wednesday, Chemistry Practical on Thursday, E Maths paper 1, which is the final paper is on Friday. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ah, sweet saccharine bliss. NOT. Because the light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be....the damn lamp lighting up another tunnel to the O levels.
Obviously A Maths was screwed. It was bad. Not because the paper was hard; I knew it was easy, but not knowing how to do most of it didn't help one bit. A C6 seems miles off - maybe I'll scrape it, maybe I won't. Maybe tomorrow the sky falls and I won't have to worry about it anymore, but until it happens, I need to work hard.
I'm a goner for A Maths paper tomorrow. I'm praying really hard I'll get a C6 pass.
Spent the whole entire day in fruitless abandon. In terms of studying I accomplished zilch. Shan't elaborate much about what I did today, except that it involved games of 'catching' with friends, filming of a couple of lame but absolutely funny videos and running in the rain.
I totally hate it when people send me rubbish chain mails.
Note to self: Don't study and use the computer at the same time again. It only ends up in using the computer and not studying. Tch.
It's about 10.05pm right now. As I type this, there's still a quarter of Physics revision left to be done. The prognosis isn't good; looks like I'll have to burn the midnight oil once again. I hate exams. I could argue and bullshit about how exams are a necessary evil (true, yes) and all in an exposition, but that still doesn't change anything about my dislike for examinations.
Countdown to Secondary Four Pure Biology Prelim 2 Paper: Approximately 8 hours. I still have chapter or so to cover, but I think I'll wake up a little earlier tomorrow to scan through it.
2 more days to go and I'm still in the thick of Biology. Gosh, there's just so much. And for the record, it's the first time I'm actually reading some of the chapters ever, since I never listened much to some of the lessons. Hopefully I don't fail, because what I'm trying to do with the subject now is to bring it up from an F9 or D7 which I think I'll get up to a B4.
Things are looking up for me in terms of revision. Chemistry tuition tonight was fruitful, the first in a fairly long time. Managed to regain (and maybe even add on a bit to) my understanding of stoichiometry, and I covered the Binomial Theorem today. Not fantastic, but it's definitely a start. That's not to say I'll get good grades or anything, I'm just saying that revision is progressing better.
Had that weird hairstyle again this morning. Didn't bother admiring it this time; Glanced at it then ruffled it up with my hands. I'm so not going to cut my hair till the end of the year if I can help it.
Woke up this morning and found my hair pressed to one side. It had a rather hilarious effect - gave me some punk-rocker hairstyle, albeit without the dyeing and gel. Admired my new hairdo in the bathroom mirror for a minute or two as I brushed my teeth, then splashed water all over it and thrashed it off with my towel.
