School – The First Week

Posted on: August 13, 2009

I have gone through school so many times that the first week seems all
so normal after all. I had my first lab, had new lab partners, new
books, new lecturers and new modules. The modules this semester look so
daunting. I hope I’ll do OK in all of them.

Projects are back
again, and after this fairly relaxed week, back we go again into that
mad cramming, and mugging and trying to catch up with work. Tirza has
had a hectic week, and seeing how disciplined she is in working and
all, makes me feel that Chem Engin might not be so bad after all.

I’m
having another new set of group members for my projects this coming
semester – different from the previous ones. I think after these years
I’m going to have had lots of experience learning how to work with
different people, some highly motivated, while others need to be
motivated. Thank God for providing me with group members again this
time.

Hall activities are starting to come alive now, although
officially nothing is finalized, and the JCRC aren’t even elected. I
can just feel that Raffles Hall is all boosted up with aspirations and
spirit, and part of me really wants to contribute to all that. But
looking back at my past not-so-good results (putting it mildly) and the
22 MC of modules to study this semester, I highly doubt that I would be
one of the high spirited Rafflesians contributing to hall this year,
despite the high CCA points I had last year.

There are always
people to carry on the baton in hall, and it looks like the batch of
high-spirited year 1’s last year (now Year 2), are actively taking up
various leadership positions and look well prepared to handle them. I
hope this will be a good year for hall, even if it might not be for me,
in terms of CCA points. Hopefully I would be able to contribute more to
hall than I plan to, this academic year.

There will be this
horrible procedure of the whole hall shifting their rooms somewhere in
September, but then there’s a new prospect of newly renovated rooms and
toilets. New facilities! 🙂 I hope it would be really worth it. I
looked into the designs of the new rooms and found them quite similar
to the old ones in many respects. Our current doors are a bit battered
and old, but somehow they feel more homely than the newer ones, and are
certainly much stronger too. And I prefer the old roofs to the new ones!

I
finally fished my diary out of all my boxes some time ago and it was
pure bliss being able to write into it again. I wonder if in this busy
semester I might be forced to cut down blogging and fall back to diary
writing alone instead. Hmm. But I’m sure I’ll be around to blog still,
even though the frequency may be much lesser 🙂
