20!

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”
-Alden Nowlan-

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 20TH TO JIA LING!!!

I didn't forget your birthday laaa...

Well, maybe I kinda did on the real day itself coz I was having exam on that day...

But I remembered it 2 days before your birthday!!! See!! It proves that I am constantly remembering you!!!

HAHAHAHA...

Don't angry okay...

Give you kiss...

*muaxmuax*

Which reminds me.

I am going to turn 20 in SIX MORE MONTHS!!

*omgomgomgomgomg*

*freaks out*

I'm officially leaving my teenage years behind me. My age no longer begins with the digit '1'.

I'M OLD!!!!

I'm growing up way too damn fast.

Sometimes when you put some thought into it, you come to the sad realization that, well, you're no longer a teen anymore, and there's no way you can undo that.

Sure, you were ranting about how you're not a kid anymore and that you want to be treated more like a grown-up; but now that the time has come, I don't...

feel...

like...

growing up.

I mean, it's great to be able to anticipate your adult years because you know they'll come sooner or later, but once your teenage years are over, they're OVER.

All I'm saying is, yeah, age doesn't matter much, neither do numbers, but when you really think about it...

I don't want to leave my teenage years behind me, where all I'll get to do from then on is to reminisce about my teenage life and stuff.

Before you know it, you're talking to 'people who are more or less your age', going:

"When I was your age..."

Then it *smacks* hits you right in the face that you're... well... no longer their age.

The number twenty sounds older than nineteen by a decade.

Hell explained

“Don’t do drugs, don’t have unprotected sex, don’t be violent. Leave that to me.”
-Marshall Mathers-

I know I shouldn't Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V stuff from forwarded mails here, but this is too interesting to resist sharing.


HELL EXPLAINED BY A CHEMISTRY STUDENT.

The following is an actual question given on a University of Arizona Chemistry mid term, and an actual answer turned in by a student.

The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared.it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand.proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls.enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why,last night, Teresa kept shouting 'Oh my God.'


THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.

If only wit could buy me good grades here.

Tomorrow is my Math 4 exam, and here I am blogging away.

the new craze

The more studying you did for the exam, the less sure you are as to which answer they want.
-Second Law of Applied Terror-

Here's another video production by Little Grass.

Killing time while waiting for the library to open:


video

Now that exam period has begun, yes it's understandable that the library has become a hot spot, but does it have to be like this??

Why are all the students standing outside the library?

They're waiting for it to open.

The library opens only at 8.30 a.m., and they want to arrive there early to get seats.

Which explains why when I arrive at the library at 10 a.m., there is not even one vacant seat left, and lets not get to the fact that the library is 5 storey high.

The fact that this video footage was taken by Little Grass shows that we are no exception to this new library craze.

Gya~~

I give up.

I'd rather study in my own room.

This proves it. i AM smart.

“You should have to pass an IQ test before you breed. You have to take a driving test to operate vehicles and an SAT test to get into college. So why dont you have to take some sort of test before you give birth to children? When I am President, thats the first rule I will institute.”
-Marilyn Mason-

I don't usually agree with Marilyn Mason in terms of fashion and philosophy, but damn, is he right this time round.

Here's an interesting IQ question I received in a forwarded e-mail:

What's the character/number that should replace the quesetion mark?

The e-mail also mentioned that:

* If you're an engineer, you should be able to solve it in (under) three minutes,
* if you're an architect, in three hours;
* if you're a doctor, in six hours;
* if you're an accountant, in three months and
* If you're a lawyer, probably never.

I solved it in about a minute or so.

I'm now officially allowed to give birth to babies. Whoopdeedoo.

Mechanics of Materials was fairly doable. More on the easy side, if you asked me.

I guess that's good news.

CHIONG AHH!

The more studying you did for the exam, the less sure you are as to which answer they want.

80% of the final exam will be based on the one lecture you missed and the one book you didn’t read.

Every instructor assumes that you have nothing else to do except study for that instructor’s course.
-Unknown-

Okay, I think by now you should know why I haven't been updating my blog on a more regulated basis.

Tomorrow is the day of my first exam paper: Introduction to Magical Realism.

Ahah.

I'm aiming for an A for this, because this is probably gonna be the only subject I'm ever going to get an A for this semester (except for Lab, but that doesn't count; EVERYONE gets an A for Lab).

Today is my final day of period (you know, the menstrual cycle thingy), which is a good sign, coz it'd be REALLY BAD if I were to have menstrual cramps during exams. You wouldn;t want to know how awful my cramps can be. (Heck, there was once my cramps were so bad I emitted sex-like noises for a full 30 minutes.)

At least that's something to be relieved about.

top 0.1% and this is what i get

"Saying nothing... sometimes says the most."
-Emily Dickinson-

FARK FARK FARK.

Fark exams, fark tutorials, fark the common bathroom without a water heater.

Farking bad mood now.

Urrgh.

On an unrelated note...

HAHAHAHA RIDICULOUS what???? Lame.



***

You know how hard it is to survive when you're in one of the top 100 universities in the world (which is actually the top 0.1% of universities world wide)? Yeah, we're all struggling. So I'm writing a guide on it to help freshmen orient themselves into this new hectic and stressful life. Hopefully It'll get published some time around next year or so.

I was just going to add "though some of you may NEVER have the chance to experience being in the top 100 universities because back when you had the chance, you weren't mature enough to think that studies are actually GOOD FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE" but decided against it because I didn't want to discriminate. Apparently I've again changed my mind. I happen to be one of those people who don't really take pity on others if they acted like they wanted to destroy their own future by not putting importance in education in the first place.

Don't get pissed off because you'd be wasting your own energy hating me when I don't even know it.

Back to the point - I'm aiming to publish my very own book soon! Stay tuned!!

P.S.: Just in case you were wondering - yes, I do have the credibility to write that book because I myself am in the world's top 100 universities. Ahah. I'm such a show off. I think I should have my rights for that, especially when I'm stressing my ass off over here.
