by the way, updates: my gran's in the hospital... she's pretty fine, up and alert and all, just that she fell down two consecutive days (monday and tuesday) and must have hurt her hip or leg or something... still waiting for the x-ray results, which thus far don't seem to be showing anything. i also met my sec sch/jc tutor, mr. tan at the same hospital; his mum's in the same ward as my gran, for having had an asthma attack, and he said a lot of funny stuff and spouted plenty of nonsense as always. all my aunties were so super shocked, haha.
the first thing he asked upon sight of me was whether i had a boyfriend already, and then he proceeded to tell every listening ear in the ward that if in university you still can't find a significant other, then come out will be stamped a chop already (or something to that extent). then he told me to quit arts and go apply for aeronautical engineering (or something like that) 'cos that's the field which'll be earning tons of millions nowadays... wahahaha, crazy. of course, he also asked my sister if she had a boyfriend, and yati also... very funny hor, him. but anyway, all this crap aside, he was a fantastic tutor.
my next paper's on saturday, and i haven't at all started studying for it; i'm studying for my final paper at the moment, and i haven't touched the entire sem's reading since august so i'm doubly dead duck. and i feel as if the exams are over already... and that's the worst!
oh, and you know what, i got back my "paradox of confinement" essay and it's the first lit un-A grade lit essay i've got back, and the tutor's comment was that "overall, your essay is very good, but i know you are capable of better", which leaves me wondering whether she graded me according to the quality of my paper, or on the basis of her perception of my ability, sigh. i got a B+.
but the 4000-word english social variation paper made up for it, 'cos despite believing i was gonna fail it and drag my whole group down for it, we got a 74%! and i wrote the entire paper some more, so, very amazed and thankful. though, again, it's not exactly that fantastic a grade, but still, i had expected to flunk it.
okay, once again, i can't wait for the exams to be over (enough, femdog and jarcheenta and joooanne and winkibo andxiao_hei, i know you're all done!). i'm gonna splurge on the sims 2 (S$49.90?) the very day! steamboat dinner before cell at uncle peter's tonight!
