Just when I thought I could breathe

No its not about the flu. Its getting better and I can (physically) breath with no problem already, thank you.

I'm talking bout 'school-stuff'. U know....uni student 'things-u-need-to-face-everyday'...and since its sem 2, it goes 'things-u-need-to-face-even-more-frequent-everyday' cuz everything's short and every bloody lecturer tries to cram everything into 2 months. Fantastic.

One of the core subject I'm taking this sem wants us to make a compiler. The lecturer for the first part of the subject was very casual, relaxed and flexible. I like it that way but his class schedules annoy me a bit sometimes. But hey, no complains for my freeing up mah schedule.

When we asked him about assignment, he kinda assured us, " assignment usually only due week 7-8." At that point, he has yet to upload the assignment. Citing MMLS has problems uploading annoucement/stuffs, he asked us to grab it from our counterparts. Sure, no prob with me.

The moment we went clicking on their assignment page, we all went white. The assignment consists of 2 parts. Part 1 is due in a week time. WTF!!!~ And the thing is, we have NO IDEA how to do it. (the damn thing even requires us to run in Linux, FFS! Albeit, more secure for sure)....

Just when I thought I have time to breath when I'm done with all my midterms and crucial lab reports (2 more labs to go tho...simple ones methinks).

I miss those days when assignments are all based on 'tutorial-ish' approach. U do question. U dunno. U ask/*coughcoughcopy*...nowadays assignments are mostly, if not all, research based. That mean you're utterly screwed if you don't have stable net. W00t! One of my assignment wants us to design a PN-Junction, and the other wants me to find out about....Control Unit and Multi Core processor...mmm...managable. Work in group of 4 when I don't even know a single soul (save one but 'bless him', NO!) in my tutorial group. HA HA!...not funny. Screw it all. All that mini-researching, I can do myself...I think. I'm actually very certain of what I have to do with my assignments. LOL~! Good change I suppose. Hope it sticks :P It better.

On a totally different note, Amran, Quj and myself went Jusco and I saw the usual "Back to School" items on sale on their (very small) concourse area. Now, I don't go to Jusco that often but I DO specifically remember that they were selling Christamssy stuff just about 2 weeks ago, when we ate at Nandos with Mike and How. I was 'autopiloted' there by default but Quj spotted me in time to drag me back, and covered my visor-...I mean eyes. He swiftly dragged me away.


Back to my point. I poked Quj and asked, "Eh...Christmas first or school starting first aa??"....cuz IIRC, back in my days (I sound old...), it was definitely Christmas, THEN whip yer asses back to schools. Quj replied that that's still the way it is now. So....why when kids just kicked their holiday-ing gears to move, are they gonna get stressed up about going back to school so soon?!!~! Yes I'm TOTALLY against that cuz as a kid, I absolutely HATED these sales. Of course they remind me of going back to school! Heck, I remember the times when my bloody holiday just started and I go shopping with my family. Guess what I saw? BACK TO SCHOOL (my ass....)....SERIOUSLY give us a break..shesh!

Some of you may defend yourself saying "Ooo...I love those times...can get new stuff" etcetcetc...U see, mum hardly gets us anything new. Anything that can re-use, use it. That goes for shoes (oh the times I crave for that trendy black one), stationery, but uniform memang stick same one la cuz I was prefect then. Can't buy those off the shelf. I never had my own new full set of color pencils. So it was pretty ironic when I got a whole set of 24(or more..?) Steadler (water) color pencils that I crave so much as a kid, when I was already about to graduate from schooling life. Schooling life, as in that primary-secondary school type they say: we humans never cease to stop learning...sigh. I gave the set to my eldest sister who has this fantabulous talent at art. She drew a frog using those color pencils. It looked very...real. Wait la got chance I ask her to take out the pic and I take photo of it...

A lengthy post. Mmm...for once (after such a long while) I think I've written sumthing 'solid' here. Hah.

p/s: Posted around 6am, and for once its not cause I haven't slept. I actually slept at 9 and woke up at 4am. Healthy? haha!
pp/s: I'm cooking this Sun. XD
ppp/s: I'm hungry...<.< /goes cook
