Presentation Is Hell

There's one thing that I hate the most in my school life.

PRESENTATION!!!

Why must I present? Why am I stressing myself up for this shit? It'll only ruin my mood my day, nothing else.

Finally that damn presentation is over! Furthest left is my Electronics tutor.

Today especially, was my group OC (Oral Communication) presentation. IT WAS HORRIBLE! I left out soooo many stuff during the presentation, overall the performance was TOTALLY different from what I'm expecting.

Standing in front of the audience, though we are on the same level, they were like huge terrifying monsters, I wanted to just run away! Of course, I know running away doesn't solve the problem. So I began my presentation terribly...

Know what I hate the most in this hateful presentation? Showing my peers how pathetic I am with that struggling expression, blabbering and embarrassing myself, stunned and forgot what to say due to extreme nervousness, embarrassing myself even further...

I looked into the eyes of my teacher, she looks kind of bored, ready to yawn at any time. I looked into the eyes of my fellow peers, showering "you are pathetic" towards me...

I felt so down after every presentation, it's a helluva torture. I won't be able to forget the pain presentation has given me, even if the pain is gone, the scars will always be there forever...

GEM Assignment 2

Lighting Shot - Bugs Bunny Cup

This was one of our old cups, thought of using it because I realised it makes a really good subject. Compositions used were the Rule of Thirds, the wall acting as Negative Space. Lighting used were Side Lighting, which is actually sunlight from the window.

Lighting Shot - Creepy Bugs Bunny Cup

As this cup has a face of Bugs Bunny, it would be a lot more fun to make it looks creepy. Compositions used were Rule of Thirds, the wall acting as Negative Space. Lighting used were Bottom Lighting, which is produced by a torchlight.

Decisive Moment Shot - Being Ignored

The lady was as though ignoring the cute chubby bird statue just right behind her. Instead of taking photos of it, she was focusing on other areas.

Decisive Moment Shot - I See You

Although the couple seems to be separated by the lamp in the middle, they can still see each other, no matter how far they are.

Decisive Moment Shot - Look Over There

Something seems to caught the attention of the little kid, and from this angle he was as though facing the direction of this particular cyclist's backside.

Decisive Moment Shot - Together As One

Another lovely couple, witnessing the beautiful sunset and enjoying this very blissful moment.

West Coast Park

Today I took Bus 175 at Clementi bus interchange and headed to West Coast Park to snap some decisive moment shots for my GEM Assignment 2.

The sunset view from West Coast Park blown me away...

I was there previously for my ONOW CIP and was amazed by the skies and nature, since then I knew I had to come back again someday! Known for its splendid view of the sunset, 6pm is the best timing for all photography enthusiasts!

Huge pinky kite, rather eye-catching. XD

The (VERY) big open field is a great spot for kite-flying!

Is this what they call Heaven On Earth?

Not wanting to be kaypoh (busybody), but they do make a good subject with that awesome background!

SP 1B Mid-Semester Test Results

One thing for sure, everything is beginning to get harder...

Computer-Aided Drafting - Even though "School Of Choice" somehow specialise in AutoCAD, but I didn't touch on that at all. Miraculously, the result turns out to be better than I thought! I scored 74 marks. B

Electronics - Pinned some of my hope on this, but rather disappointed at the end. I scored 65 marks. C+

Mechanics 1 - One big problem module, it's pure physics! My simple brain failed to solve them...I scored 40 marks. F

Engineering Mathematics 1 - Pinned MOST of my hope on this one. I was so confident! And yet, it turned out to be like this?! I scored 79 marks. B+

原来,这么地糟糕

起初在新加坡理工学院,觉得这地方还蛮好玩的。打滚了一阵子后,才发现走进的不是一间学校,而是噩梦的根源地。

最大的问题 “归功” 于我没得选的课程,叫做电子机械工程系 (Mechatronics) 。总的来说,就是设计,然后靠电子和机械来创造出可动的机器模型。老实说,这不是我的兴趣,在我眼里是超级复杂超级难做的事。

刚开始还能应付,可是渐渐的我越飘越远。。。

这就像是有保存期一样,刚开始最新鲜,久了便是现在臭臭的,简直令人反胃。

会开始写这篇文章都要 “多谢” 这位 ITOE 老师,要不是他的一番 “教导” ,我对这课程所累积的不爽也不会因此而爆发。

我超不喜欢上这堂课,更尤其是他的课。某一天,我们这班学生照常地走进工作室继续制作我们的模型。谁都应该了解,我不喜欢这课程,还一直在范围外徘徊,做错事是必不得已。谁知,一个好的开始,其实是暴风雨来临之前的风平浪静。他狂性大发,破口大骂 : “You all are the worst class!” (你们这班是最烂的!)

让我伤心的是我连累了大家,因为我是唯一一个犯错的,那不就等于 I'm the worst of the worsts? (烂中之烂?) 他的这番话直接刺穿我的心胸,不得不让我觉得自己很糟糕,竟然可以这么地糟糕。

你们以为,我真的很想这样的吗?

Happy New Year 2010!

Right now, 2009 is history.

It's time to get over the past and move on to yet another brand new year, 2010!

It's a rather happening year.

To me, 2009 was considered as a year of memories. From receiving the results of my O Level to now, venturing into the life of Poly! Come to think of it, it's already 8 months in SP! 8 months! How time flies seriously...

In the meantime, I'll never forget the endless torments while going through this process, it's like waking up from a dream and entering a new nightmare! It's a wonder for me to come this far. Thank goodness I'm used to the life as it is now.

Before my life in SP begin, I took part in SP Flag Day! Carrying a donation can hoping passer-by could feed any amount to it. Now I understood the hardships in doing that. :(

I met Wei Qin, my first friend in SP! Somehow I really get along with him. Chatting with him is alot more ease and fun than the others.

Together with my fellow peers, we went to Yakult factory! Our first trip as a class, reminds me of secondary school excursions in the past. ;)

For every assignments in school, I did my best. There seems to have this "invisible force" pushing me to my limits. During tutorials, I'm not in a stress-free classroom anymore, but on a competitive platform. 'I wanna beat my classmates', 'I wanna be the first one to complete this damn Math tutorial' etc...all this sort of things that goes around in my head. Yeah, I really want to achieve good grades for all my modules. Of course, difficulties will always be there to obstruct my way towards success. :'(

Haiz...if only this "force" appears during O Levels period. :'(

Since I'm striving for good academic results, I might as well go all out and include CCA! That's right, CCA. Oh, that's the term for secondary school. Now is alot cooler - Club. I set my vision far and high and joined 2 Clubs and went for their camps - Photography Club and Cyclists Club.

So far I've went for 4 Photography Club outings - Chinatown, Botanic Gardens, Haji Lane and HortPark. It's very free and easy, just simply enjoy the fun! ^^

This is the reason why I joined Cyclists Club. I get to cycle overnight in long distances with planned routes! I almost thought I'm a backpack traveller with a bike! Haha, it's all about free and easy. ^^

Alright enough, here's my results for 1A Mid-Semester Test and 1A Semester Exam. And yet I worked so hard... :'(

There has been too many changes taking place since the year 2009, kinda disappointing... :'(

I believe 2009 is a crucial year of letting go and moving on to the next level. But it's easier said than done, saying that I never once miss the past 4 years at "School Of Choice"? That's definitely a lie!

Oh my, what am I doing?! I just said to let go of the past and now I've started reminiscing again. Epic fail *lol*!

Anyway, since it's the year 2010, then I shall list down 10 New Year's resolutions!

  1. Complete what I'm supposed to complete for the past few months, which I left them out due to my laziness.
  2. And of course, curb my lazy habit!
  3. Get my first and last DSLR, most probably would be Canon 500D. After that, get my foundation right and no Auto anymore!
  4. Hopefully more happiness and less torment!
  5. Exercise some self-control!
  6. Good results!
  7. NO presentations please, I sincerely beg! :'(
  8. Read New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and Giddens novels!
  9. BF 碧碧天使 get over with him*! :)
  10. Last but not least, a very standard resolution, all's well for my family and friends! :)

Happy New Year! ^_^

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。
