Everytime I visit Tris's blog..

Finally, the ordeal ends. Networks paper was easier than expected, everyone thought so. Which was lucky since I didn't get in as much study as I intended for it. The holidays begin!
Wonderful lunch today with Aik and WM, the food was good and filling! Sorry I can't join you guys on Wednesday for MI:3. I'll probably still see WM around a bit lah, but Aik's going back home to Penang.. Hmm maybe I'll come over and visit you for a weekend! Good luck for your remaining 2 papers and enjoy your trip home!
Aaaaannnnndd.. Chelsea have won the Premier League! For the second year running! All the more sweeter that the ceremony was held at Stamford Bridge in front of all their fans. All the more sweeter that it came right after a 3-0 defeat of Man Utd. This team has come a long way from the team I supported way back in 1995. From relegation candidates to mid-table strugglers to title contenders to title holders. From Glenn Hoddle to Ruud Gullit, to started to turn things around, to Gianluca Vialli, who really got things going, to Claudio Ranieri and finally Jose Mourinho, the Special One. Money may buy you the talent, but it is the talent who grinds out the results, who play the beautiful football. Kudos to the team for their wonderful performances, kudos to the manager for keeping the team disciplined, for gelling the team together, for the tactics that have made the Blues the top team in England.
Enjoying time at home a lot. :)

Bear with my awful creations one last time..
Going to reformat my laptop, good time to reformat myself as well! This holiday promises to be one of much change and progress.
Windz, seems like you have a lot on your mind! Don't let it affect your studying.. You have a lot to tell me when you get back..
Last paper in less than 2 hours! And I still haven't finished studying.. Never did any practice.. Pwned lah. GG. Aiming for A+ for this one some more.
Avoiding a situation will actually consume more of your energy than tackling it directly -- truly. The stars promise that dealing with this directly will bring about some significant changes. It could even clear up a side issue.
Should have told me this like, weeks ago. Grr.. Now I'm no longer avoiding - I've washed my hands of it - so this advice is useless.
Today's paper was disgusting. Some things came out that were trivial, some things came out that they didn't explicitly tell us to study for, and who was to know? If they have trouble coming up with 100 MCQ questions, I seriously don't mind doing just 80 questions. Them setting silly stuff like that really pisses me off. Well, at least it's over.
Last paper tomorrow! And I haven't finished studying. Been playing a bit too much, dear me. Going to sleep now and wake up early tomorrow and finish the last bit. Please let me have good sleep tonight!

Ugh.. must.. study.. 2 more days!
But, chopping people up is soooo fun
Me after a particularly tough battle. Check out the number of projectiles on my shield! And the javelin stuck in my body.

I dreamt I was bitten by a fish.
I was inching along this log across a pond, my hand went under to grab the log and suddenly i felt something swallow my index finger. I raised my hand and there was this carp hanging on to my finger. It didn't hurt at all, and after a while it released my finger and went back into the water.
I think it means something important, but I have no idea what. Anybody knows what it means?

Another paper over. That's leaves 3 more to go. Have no mood to study now, maybe because it's the weekend. Well, there's less than a week of studying left. I can make it through this.

1 down, 4 to go! It's finally started.. Forget what's past, focus on what's coming ahead.

Horoscope for the day:
Are you professing feelings that you don't really feel? Make sure your emotions are sincere before you go around spouting off. Being cruel to be kind may not be fun, but in the long run, it really is best.
Compare with yesterday's horoscope. This is why you can't use a random number generator for everything.
Went for a run today but couldn't finish the distance I'd planned. The accumulated fatigue has sapped my endurance badly.
Well, after tomorrow, one big weight will be off my mind. No more calculus for the next 3 months! 8 more days..
Though I wouldn't get any rest then, because there's everything else to be done. Finding a job, DWTC, Hockey, moving back home etc.
Still, hopefully a fresh start, hopefully I can leave behind everything that's gone wrong this semester, give myself a chance to carry on without this burden I've been carrying for the past couple of months.
Now, an early night, in preparation for maths tomorrow! Please let me sleep properly tonight, of all nights..

My horoscope for the day..
Make nice with you-know-who. Because, while you may have been ready to wash your hands of this entire affair, something convinces you that all is not lost. Be very firm about what is and isn't acceptable to you, however.
Wrong time of the year, lah.
So, back to studying. Am slightly behind schedule, means I'll see less of Grandpa Chow, also! He's been sending me way too many dreams recently, anyway; I always wake up more tired than when I slept. 9 more days! I gotta hang in there!

This post marks the official launch of this semester's mugging marathon. I'm starting really late this semester, so I've got to be even more focused than before! In 10 days I shall be free!
As an aside, I don't like the way some things are right now, but they are what they are because it is what they should be, and in life there's no undo option. I can only keep going forward and see what this road brings me. If things were meant to go wrong then sooner is always better than later.
So, to everyone who has exams ahead, best of luck!

Maybe pf will remember that I didn't like Mayday. Well, I still think 阿信 cannot sing, ever seen videos of him - trying - to sing live? Still, they have very good songs, so I love to listen to them. And they're very easy to K! :P

Amusing little maths tutorial question..
4. Romeo loves Juliet, and his love for her tends to increase when she loves him; naturally, it tends to decrease if she doesn’t. We can represent this by dR/dt = aJ, where R represents Romeo’s love for Juliet (negative love means hatred, of course), where J is Juliet’s love for Romeo, and a is a positive constant. Juliet, alas, loves not wisely, nor too well: she is extremely fickle, in the sense that her love for Romeo only increases when the latter actually dislikes her, but her opinion of him goes down when he loves her. So for Juliet we have dJ/dt = −bR, where b is another positive constant. Find a second order ordinary differential equation for R, and solve it under the assumption that Romeo’s love for Juliet is at its maximum, L, when he first meets her (at t = 0), as is customary with love at first sight. Use this solution to find J(t) and graph both functions on the same diagram. Show that Romeo and Juliet are both in love only one quarter of the time. What is the meaning of the constants a and b? Find Juliet’s maximum love for Romeo. In view of the meaning of a and b, does this answer make sense? Find an expression for the time it takes for the relationship to complete one entire cycle.
