A Space of My Own 我的空间

26 August 09

Posted on: August 26, 2009

If I could, I’ll just name every blog entry I have ‘updates’. But that
would be too boring. Not that my current blog title is anything
exciting either. Well, I guess I am a little boring as a person, in
essence.

If you feel bored when you visit my Blogspot blog, try playing
with the fishies on the left. They follow your mouse’s lead. And if you
click on the ‘waters’ see what happens! It’s quite interesting for a
short term. Once I tried twirling my mouse round and round watching the
fishes trying to follow me, but being unable to keep up. Ahh… feeling
of being ahead. Haven’t felt that for such a very long time.

I
just got my new project but my group has not started working on it yet.
We just managed to get everyone settled down, and choose project
leaders for different projects. At first we wanted to settle the
leadership thing by playing ‘rock, paper, scissors’, the good old way
of doing it. Unfortunately, we were meeting on MSN. But MSN has
improved by leaps and bounds nowadays, and they do let you play that
particular game online. Still, we decided that it was too tedious and
decided to do random number picking instead. I got to lead a project
that is still an unknown. In fact the module itself is a black box to
me, because we haven’t started learning the examinable part (and the
project part) proper. Oh, well, come what may 🙂

On a happier
note, the RH walkway is open for use, finally. I expressed this on my
facebook, and have received the highest record of people ‘liking’ my
status thus far. A covered walkway does mark RH history after all. No
more getting wet running back from classes (unless you stubbornly want
to soak by taking the engineering faculty route). And for us who
witnessed and lived through the construction of the walkway, we don’t
have to go one big circle under the sun just to get to YIH and the
places nearby, or the YIH bus stop. I don’t mind going under the sun
that much, but I do remember the time I carried a whole box of curry
puffs from YIH back to hall, it actually rained. I bought an umbrella,
but it was of no use at all because both my hands were occupied (and
aching under the weight). So you see, living a life with the absence of
a covered walkway is quite a pain, and it helps you appreciate the
walkway more.

I did skip all my activity interviews after all.
The Chairpersons agreed to let me off. For my filler-choices, I
politely told the Chairpersons that I want to let myself off, and the
were OK with it. I do want to join so many things, but yet I am afraid
I’ll wreck my CAP further this year. In fact everyone’s so enthusiastic
about everything, I have this little nagging feeling that I might not
even get to stay in hall the coming academic year. Ah wells. As long as
I get to stay somewhere on campus, it’s fine and dandy.

Room
balloting sessions are approaching and I think I want to occupy the
room I stayed in Block 4 when I was in Year 1. Hopefully it will make
me feel young again 🙂 The view out there is pretty nice (there are
trees outside the window), but it will be a different kind of nice from
my current room which overlooks the takraw court. You see people from
this room, but in the Block 4 room, the main view is trees (and maybe
squirrels if I’m lucky). Trees do mean mosquitos, but since Tirza and I
are people mosquitoes do not have a passion for, it’s of small matter
to us. Much as I look foward to staying there again, I dread moving my
things over from Block 5 to Block 4.

That’s enough of updates for these few days, I think. Shall blog again if I have more.
