So Far, Not So Good

Can you believe what I'm doing now? I'm updating this half-dead blog!

Anyway, let me summarise what I have learned for the past 5 days.

My first ever module of this week was called Critical Reasoning Skills. It involves critical thinking skills and some debating, but most importantly, training us to be able to speak up in class and reason with your fellow peers about a particular topic. Seriously, I just don't feel comfortable doing all this. :'(

Next was this module called Thermofluids 1. As the name stated, I will be learning more about heat and fluids in details.

Coming right up was Engineering Materials 1. Learning some of the materials composition and so on, which I think is one of the core modules, and I realised it's quite complicated with all sorts of formulas!

Okay, Electrical Technology next. In general, it's Physics. There's Practical involving circuits, and the theories that we're going to learn is EXACTLY Physics. The world of Physics, too wide for me perhaps.

Woot! Computer Programming. Sounds fun isn't it? It's certainly one of the most interesting modules in my course! I'm going to learn a totally different language, not Spanish or French, but a language that only computers can read! By typing those code in a special panel, a program can be formed! Of course, the program that I'm referring to are those simple ones, don't try to compare them with MapleStory or something else...

Finally, Fundamental Mathematics. I suggest they should just rename the whole module to Additional Mathematics instead. Although I've learned before, but I'm still weak in it, which will become one hell of a problem for me. Soon, I've got no choice but to meet my old friends, Binomial Theorem Boy Boy and Logarithm Girl Girl...

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot there's CIP! What a joke that resurfaced again in my school life. In this case, it's considered as one of my modules which is taught for the first time. WHAT?! My batch became guinea pigs again?! It's disastrous this time round, no organisation is going to approach us, but instead we approach them!

Looking at the positive side, this is the chance whereby we can prove ourselves and be an independent person. Hopefully.

Afterall, this is only the beginning, the game has just started. :)

寻找上学的喜悦

在新加坡理工学院上课也已经是第二天了,完全感觉不到上学的那种喜悦。

相比之下,中学时期真的很不一样,虽然有很多考试,还要准备大考,非常地辛苦,但天天都能与朋友相处,全身的疲劳都好似被抛到九霄云外。没错,朋友正是关键。

这两天实在过得很不自在,我班的同学全部都是陌生脸孔,而我又不擅长与人打交道,这个 “交朋友的任务” 简直是难上加难。

就这样,我并没有认识全班的人,最多只有单单的一位。我班的有一些同学在两天内就已经开始与别人打成一片,有些甚至已经非常的要好了。而我呢?光是用想的也觉得可笑。那时我正在想,为什么他们都不跟我说话?是不是我长得不帅而排斥我?别人从认识新同学到结为朋友不费吹灰之力,我却需要四个星期左右,甚至更久,来适应周遭的新面孔。听清楚了,只是适应而已哦!

我无法理解为何我会有如此的心态,是不是我快要失去自我了呢?没办法啊,第二天的时候我就去浏览几位朋友的部落格,各个都结交了新朋友。想起自己就像个孤零零的老人一样,就会觉得自己很没用。

我当时的确感到很沮丧,沮丧里还带有一点嫉妒。说实在的,至今我有很多事情都无法鼓起勇气去做,现在回想起来,我所失去的原来比我想象中的还要多。

SP Flag Day 2009

I'm finally back after slogging out the whole day at United Square shopping mall.

Don't be mistaken, I didn't went all the way there to do shopping but to play my part and support The President's Challenge. My job is to raise funds through this donation tin.

It didn't turn out well for me in the morning. I thought everyone have to assemble at SP first before moving on to their designated location, but I'm wrong. After wasting 30mins or so travelling to SP, I spent another hour getting to Novena. People started at 8am or maybe earlier, whereas I begin at 9am. :(

I knew Square 2 is gonna be flooded with SP students, so I went to the opposite instead where United Square shopping mall is located.

So, let's get the ball rolling!

The spot where I was standing has a nice fengshui at the beginning, people are willing to donate $1 and even $2. But as time passes by, I can say there's no one donating at all...

So I moved to the entrance of United Square, but encountered the same problem. Most of them either ignore me or decline donation, even when it's 12pm aka peak period lunch hour, donations were still hard to come by.

Now I realised this is one tough task. My spine seems to be breaking after standing there for hours!

Soon it's 1pm which means time to head back to SP for calculation. My tin was like 1/6 full? Gone case!

But no matter what, I still wanna thanks to all the kind souls out there who contributed to my donation tin, resulting in a total sum of $36.50 + $1 Brunei note!

I know it's a bit less, but as long as I'm not the lowest I'm fine with it. After this "awesome" experience, I told myself, whenever I saw someone holding a donation tin, I will not hesitate and donate to them! :)

Orientation?! Not Again...

Until now, I'm still sensitive towards orientation.

Especially those teamwork games to break the ice, I simply can't stand it.

But luckily for School of MM (Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering, which is my school) Freshmen Orientation, there wasn't a single game.

After a whole morning of entertainment and speeches, I finally get the chance to see my class and my classmates. As usual, self-introduction again...sucks man.

Speaking about my class, there are only 19 students - 15 guys and 4 gals. To be honest, I'm relieved there's opposite gender in my class. As you know, engineering courses are usually packed with guys...

Now there's one problem, I don't know anyone from my class. :(

伤感的泪。。。

生命是如此地脆弱,

而人则是那么地自私。

创造出这世间上所有美丽万物的上天,目睹了这一切之后,终于忍不住落下了伤感的泪。。。

人生苦短,世事难料。活好当下,懂得珍惜,才最重要。置身事外,与世隔绝,在自我封锁的心灵世界里,感受到了无穷的宁静。。。
Residing in his World of Solitude, always longing, loving, the fantasies and memories. In reality, he seeks to go travelling and taking photos along his journey.
有一條只能向前走的路,叫時光。
有一種只能懷念的回憶,叫過去。
