Parents-Lecture Day.

Last Saturday, a dreaded day came. It's called, Parents-Lecture Day. 

It's a lovely day where your parents and lecturers meet to discuss how their child is doing. My parents were excited to meet my lecturers. Point is, they want to see if I am doing well. 

Surprisingly, most of the lecturers said that I was an alright kid. You know, the usual normal kid who doesn't causes too much trouble. My parents were glad with that. I'm glad with that as well.

However, my parents were shocked that I almost failed my GP paper. I was shocked too - I skipped her class so I didn't know my results. I only found out, then. 


It was odd though when my GP lecturer talked to my parents. Honestly, I wanted to skip her and to make sure my parents didn't meet her. But she saw me and waved at me so I was forced to drag myself and my parents to meet her.

I didn't exactly like my GP lecturer. I felt that she was unprofessional and annoying. She talked to my class as if we were a bunch of i…

My life has been taken over...by writing.

Currently, I am doing the nanowrimo thing. And omg, it has taken over my life. Right now, all I can think about is my writing. I'm obsessed.



Thank god, the holidays have started...or else. I seriously wonder how I will manage school. It's hard to pay attention in class when your mind is somewhere else.



Thankfully, the examination is over so the paces of the class were moving very slowly. Even the lecturers were in a holiday mood. No one really wanted to learn or to lecture. Everyone wanted a holiday.


I, too, was in holiday mood or rather writing mood. Just this week alone, I skipped about 6 classes (Accounting, General Paper and Economics) so that I can rush home and start typing away my story.



I am just not in the mood for studying. Even if I went to class, I will simply dare dream about my novel, ignoring everything and everyone.

My word count currently is about 29000. Well, at least, I passed the half way mark. To be honest, I'm not sure if I can finish 50000 words by Novemb…

Books.

Since my final year exam is over, my stress level has really been reduced. I'm so much more relaxed now.


Anyhow, I feel bored. So currently, I'm having my reading mood on~! I would love to read so many books that I haven't read yet but always wanted to read.

So here's a list :
-The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson
-Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
-Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld
-All of Madeline Wickham books.
-The remains of the day by Kazuo Ichiguro



If you have any good books, please recommend me. Yea, I know I am pathetic for not having read Hunger Games or Stieg Larsson. But that's because I have school and not enough time to read such awesome books. sigh.

I found out that my college library has Stieg Larsson's and Kazuo Ichiguro books, so I'm just gonna borrow them...but I think, I'll have to buy the rest. Sigh.....


But since, I have none of these books, I started rereading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I know I read it about a m…

Crazy week.

This week, I had my year end exam. It was quite stressful and crazy. To top it off, each day of my exam had its own horror story.

1st day


General Paper and Law Paper. 

On this day, I went to school early, thinking that if I'm early, I can slowly relax and take my time to have a great delicious breakfast in the canteen. Then, go for my exam without any rush.



Sadly, my stomach didn't agree with me. For some reason, I had a terrible stomach ache the moment I reached college. And then, the nearest toilets all seemed to be unavailable because it is the cleaning period. So I had to run all the way to another block to ease my stomach. 
The whole day, my stomach was giving me problems.


And on this day, I know that I screwed up on my General Paper. Law Paper? I don't know. Maybe I did screw it up. Maybe I didn't. We'll see.


2nd day

Economics Paper.
My stomach was still being crappy. During the exam, my stomach hurt so bad that I couldn't ignore it. I had to quickly ask for perm…
