called to the horns

i am very very worried for friday; if they decide to ask all sorts of technical questions i am going to be utterly stumped. i have so much to revise for it; wonder whether it would be smarter to start preparing for it now or to straighten out my bio for thursday's paper first and figure out the interview stuff later.

and my attempt to understand wikipedia's quantum mechanics page was just... sad. i was trying to comprehend the Schrödinger's cat experiment but my brain was blown to bits.

oh and yes, ONE MORE PAPER LEFT ;D


eeps. there's still the A levels, if my delicate disposition even survives that long. i think when A's come i will undergo a complete shutdown and run off into some corner of my head to play chess with myself. or, i could have turned into a rather messy pile of human innards.

i just realised that i haven't played chess with silas (my com, if you're confused) in really really long. and i'm glad that i've yet to implode and i'm happy to say that i probably won't. my delicate disposition seems to have manned-up from increased exposure to testosterone and mind boggling exams. and econs. oh econs, the pains i went through just for you.

oh and yes, zinc and i were talking about the existence souls on the bus ride home today (lol our discussion was very philosophical) and i got reminded of noetic science from 'The Lost Symbol'. but thats irrelevant, cause in the end we concluded that we'd find out when we find out, which hopefully wont be soon.

i'm not sure what the point of typing that out was, but it's useful in case a couple of years down the road i start wondering what i did/talked/thought about back then. which is actually something i do once in awhile, like today evidently.

anyway, i shall go back to feeling very demoralised by all these uk students who have so much work experience that is so varied that i wonder if i even stand a teeny tiny chance. but what am i supposed to do since singapore has no lamb farms! nor cow farms! and too few stables! oh wells, i will find out when i find out. here's to hoping tomorrow will be a productive day, toodles.

now and again

that strange unpleasant feeling :/

Au Jour Le Jour

"But feelings are just having a picture on the screen in your head of what is going to happen tomorrow or next year, or what might have happened instead of what did happen, and if it is a happy picture they smile and if it is a sad picture they cry."

"And when you look at the sky you know you are looking at stars which are hundreds and thousands of light years away from you. And some of the stars don't even exist any more because their light has taken so long to get to us that they are already dead, or they have exploded and collapsed into red dwarfs. And that makes you seem very small, and if you have difficult things in your life it is nice to think that they are what is called negligible which means that they are so small you don't have to take them into account when you are calculating something."

- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

it's nice to be able to start reading books again, there are so many i want to open and lose myself in. and i used to do that thing where i think of how very small i am in the greater scheme of the universe and it felt comforting to know how insignificant my screw-ups were. except it was really hard to find stars in singapore and i just end up wondering if i'm looking at a star or airplane. but it's nice to know that this same star was shining down on us back then and the starlight i finally get to see today (or not) is something we sort-of shared.

and i'm thinking i'm sort of obsessed, but sometimes a memory helps us to be a little more brave in a frightening world. and that's the beautiful thing about memories. you see everything through rose-tinted glasses and the good will always be there to give you strength and warm fuzzy feelings; and the bad can get the hell lost.

it's moments like now that i wish i could dig a hole and disappear for awhile

mess mess mess

i can't bring myself to pack everything up, the idea of filing away notes is so depressing i'd be so much happier just throwing everything out the window (though i'll probably regret it later zzz). A's are sort-of-over and i can't wait for them to be officially over. i wanna play ultimate again. and go shopping. oooo i sent my dress for alteration today, hope it turns out okay n.n

and i just bought blueberries, can't wait to bake something with them before my auntie eats them all up ]:

a long way down

Our life is made up of time; our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a few quick minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet your time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades were being spent the best way they possibly could. In other words, if you could change anything, would you?

these violent delights have violent ends

so the first week is over and i'm exhausted; emotionally drained too. i can't stand how i've made so so so many careless and obvious mistakes. what's the point of doing well in jc exams if simple carelessness will screw up your A levels. sucks. i can't believe i actually missed out questions even. what is wrong with me??!

i had the strangest dream involving bear yesterday. people kept trying to wash him in the washing machine with all sorts of things and i think my sis almost succeeded one time and if she had, bear would have come out pink ._.

oh and i crashed my parents' room at 2am last night cause i simply couldnt sleep with the strange smell of mosquito incense in my room. i just sprawled on the floor with my arsenal of pillow blanket bolster and bear and i think mosquito incense screws up some of the chemicals in my brains because it tossed to the forefront of my mind some of my greatest fears. it was really really strange :/ but in the morning i got to claim my parents entire bed after they woke up and it was so good~ the perks of going back to sleep n.n
