here it goes again

Today’s the first day of university classes and considering the fact that these are the first lectures I’ve attended in almost 3 years, they were a kind jolt back to academic life. Not.

Considering the fact that engineering courses are among the more rigorous ones campus has to offer, I was hardly surprised at the lack of the mandatory introductory chit-chat that was so common during first lectures.

Oh well, at least the notes are all available online for printing and the mid-term test dates are already out – 6 weeks to the first trial by fire -_-”

Having applied for computer engineering with no prior computing background, there’s always a nagging feeling that I’ve knowingly gotten myself into the deeper end of the ditch but hopefully it will turn out that I’m wrong at the end of the 4 years ^^;

The timetable’s not been too kind to me so far – I’m stuck in school for effectively 4 and a half whole days a week, but luckily it’s only for one semester.

On the bright side, all the spare time can be used for studying. On the down side, there’s not much else that can be done in campus to kill 5 hours of time -_-”

On other non-academic matters, I’m now a proud 21 year old adult as of 08/08/08, although I don’t know what has changed drastically in my life. R21 movies perhaps?

No lavish presents for me, though I was pretty surprised and pleased that Via planned our spa trip to Batam and got me a Ronaldo Champions Legue jersey. Thanks dear :)

And last but not least, here’s to Tuesday classes that start at 2pm tomorrow. Hurray for sleep-ins!! XD

It’s probably the last weekend before I pack up my bags for Krabi and Bangkok for a nice holiday. The past few days have been real hectic though. Had my Econs exam last Friday and even though it was MCQ only, I don’t think I fared really well. Ah well, can’t do much but wait for the results to be released on 4th July. At least it’s one thing off my chest ^^;

Moving on to not so happy stuff – I got knocked out of the 2nd round of the Winning Eleven tournament I was taking part in yesterday. It was kind of an anti-climax since I was feeling pretty confident in the 2 weeks leading up to the competition but something just gave way I guess.
