i think i know now why all the uni grads say they're tired of studying already  
yati came home from the hospital while i was cleaning out the cat pad, and she told me to put it down, saying she'd do everything altogether, so i was saved from having to vacuum the whole place. *grateful* but which also means i have no excuse but to go back to studying. i think i actually prefer housework--at least no exam at the end of it. :p

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!

it'll be over for you soon!
i borrowed the sims 2 CD from my neighbour, but it takes up a humongous 3 GIGABYTES of hard disk space on the computer. so i've to wait for my bro to be free enough to free up some space on his computer before installing it. boo hoo.

by the way, which mr tan are you talking about?

Re: it'll be over for you soon!
haha i meant neighbour as in my hallmate! she lives on the same floor as me! bleah.

grrr i can't wait to install the sims 2! but then again i've not played the real sims 1 before, only the online version and the "bustin' out" version. i'm pretty sure i'll fumble with all the menu buttons and shortcut keys. any good place to get cheat codes? =P

Re: it'll be over for you soon!
haha i knew you weren't that social! :p

wah that time hor i also wanted to download the trial sims online version, but i hadn't gotten broadband yet, so it was too big to get :<

actually the only cheats i mostly use is the klapaucius/rosebud one to get more money, but then i eventually grew out of it and my sims started to build their empire through their own honest means! hahahaha i'm so proud of them!

try here, not sure if it's still available though:

Re: it'll be over for you soon!
yeah yeah i'm a recluse. but so what?

sims online was ok but everyone was flirting with each other. think i'd prefer sims 2.. but i've yet to try it out!

yah i heard of the klapaucius cheat too. i guess cheating will be my last resort when my sims are dying.. hahaha!

hmm.. is the sims 2 even that fun? i didn't feel attrracted to it although i'm a gaming fanatic leh.. -_-"

aiyah you lousy lah, you should go and look at all those videos on the sims2 website man! anyway i heard that sims2 is more violent and crude and has more "sex" stuff in it than sims1 (and the hot date expansion pack). it does have some minor gore also mah! go get it!
