Thursday, September 29, 2005A double setback in a single day. . . What can i still say. . ? expect for feeling so unfortunate and shameful. . . Firstly, it was a disgraceful AO for chemistry paper 3, then, came a bad piece of new that i didn't make it for my GP, what's next what's next. . . ? I guess i can conclude now that i screwed up my prelims, instead of waiting for all the results to be released. . ? I'm left at a situation where i am going nowhere. . The question now may be "what had happened to me.?"
Perhaps the most disappointing of all was the chemistry paper 3. . . Having done so much, finishing all the preliminary questions given, and i still end up with such horrible grade. . . What went wrong. . ? Just what the hell am i doing. . . I felt so pissed with myself upon thinking of this. . . I looked so bright and promising at the start before the prelims and now, it all turned grey. . . My target, to get myself into the top 100 for the exam, all gone into the drain now i guessed. . No more. . . No more. . .
"It's only preliminary". . many said. . . i knew it. . . but it wasn't about whether it's preliminary or not. . . It's about the last chance to make my mark academically in srjc examinations. . . All along, i have been close, but never a time close enough to put my name inside the top 100 students for any examination. . . It's the last time, last chance. . . but i screwed it up. . . Can't help feeling angry with myself over this. . . All the singing that i had did in K box just now hasn't help cooling the fire inside my heart. . . Haiz. .!
It's all on math now to save me from making this examination the worst performance ever. . I'm not optimistic about A, but i hope with some sheer luck, i could secure either a B or C. . . Maybe then, i may still regain some hope in myself. . .
Wednesday, September 28, 20053.23miles. . . 5.2kilometres. . . 5200metres. . . 17060feets. . . 520000 centimetres. . . 204724 inches. . 13 rounds around the school's track. . . That is how far we ran, on a single cooling day like this. . . Not a remarkable feat, but an especially enjoyable run with the company of Kelvin Si Jie and Zixiang. . . It's been long since i had a long run like this, luckily the pace was still managable, if not i would not have make it till the end. . . Recalling the days where i used to be an impressive long distance runner, the present me no longer possess the mental and physical strengths for such runs. . . but nevertheless, the main man of the run today is Si Jie. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Objective: To act and destroys Si Jie's belly
Status: Act 1 accomplished.
Congratulations, but more tortures to come, as we proceed to train our future commando, Lim Si Jie. . . Haha. . .
I'm getting tired of waiting for rong to wake up, guess no more k box action today. . It's already 4.18pm and no sign of him waking from his sleep to return my call. . . Haiz. . !
So today. . . filled with the disappointment of failing to achieve a significant grade for my chemistry practical. . . I've got a D, down from a B from mid-year. . . What can i say. .? exactly perhaps maybe blaming myself for not being able to do better. . . Tomorrow will be paper 3's turn, i wander how will i end up like. . ? Putting on a brave front and tell others i fail. .? Or maybe feel a sigh of relief that things didn't turn out as bad as i thought. . .
It wouldn't be any better for me if not for the much better than expected performance from my physics paper 2. . . Managed to obtain a C grade, and proud to announce that i've got full marks from my quantum question. . . It would have been so much more better if i had not flopped so horribly for my paper 3. . . Anyway, it certainly had created a morale boosting effect on my physics. . . All the way man, physics i shall own you in A level. . .!
Tuesday, September 27, 2005Forget about A. B and C. . . Be happy with a D. . . A E will be disappointing but at least enough. . . Don't be too shocked with an AO. . . An F will be impossible. . . That's all i can say after today's correction session for chemistry paper 3. . . After seeing myself putting through a reasonably amount of effort in chemistry- finishing all the prelim papers for all colleges, i somehow hated myself for failing to handle many of the questions inside. . . They were all similar questions which i had did before, yet i wasn't why just couldn't manage to do them. . . Though i am not really willing to admit this, but studying this much without producing some quality results just shows what a lousy learner am i. . . Definitely need to do some reflections on this. . . For now, i hope all i said about myself not achieving results that meets my own expectations are only speculations, may the reality provide me with some consolations. . .
It's been a typical school day. . . spending the whole period on the Auditorium going through corrections for Math, Chem and GP. . . Going through the corrections was a painful process, especially if you recall yourself failing to get the correct answer. . . This is such a time where it's a bless to be able to forget, maybe. . . Unfortunately, i just felt my memory wasn't that bad, and being able to remember what i had written so vividly was as good as condemning me to the fate of knowing i couldn't do well so quickly. . . Nevertheless, despite saying all these rubbish, an optimistic guy like me still chose to believe that this is a blessing in disguise, or perhaps some miracle will happen that turn the tables around. . .
Tomorrow. . . Made an agreement with Zixiang and Kelvin to go for a jog after school. . . It's a verbal agreement, i wasn't sure if i would really turn up. . . Missing K box for so long and i'm now thirsty for some k box actions, i will definitely chose to go for my k box session if rong is free. . . Furthermore, running under the hot sun at the time we finished lesson is going to be a torture. . . I shall suggest running on saturday early morning if possible. . . Sorry pals. . !
Monday, September 26, 2005Today's the second day since i officially launched my blog page. . . Has been struggling to make amendments here and there so as to make it more presentable. . Guess the person who created this blogskin will hate me hell lots, i had almost changed everything that bears a resemblance to the auther's orginal creation, except for its layouts and structure. . . Anyway i did that so that at least it looks slightly different and that's what i wanted, something different. . if i can i would have chose to do my own skin. . but well, i didn't have the capability for now. . . In any case, hope that everything still look ok, i had really put in effort to decorate it with details. . .
Alright, let talks about today. . . First day of school after the prelims. . . Started my morning taking the same bus with Alvin to school. . . It was real fun crapping and bullshitting throughout the journey with him. . . This 'ah beng used to be' is really damn funny and crappy. . . Heard he's going for his advanced theory for driving already. . . Envious. . If only my parent could sponsor me for driving license. . . well, anyway, study most important now, i shall get my own driving license with my own means after A level. . !
Mr Quek was on reservist today. . . and the one taking over his lesson is. . . Mr Asokan. . . F math teacher. .! Cool. . But well, not as cool as i thought, slightly sleep-inducing actually. . . Suddenly miss Mr Quek's presence. . . Heard from Mr Asokan that he will be back to return us our scripts personally. . . I hope the results will be good, not a A but at least a B or C i pray. . .
There was no scripts returned to us today, but it wasn't entirely a wasted trip to school. . . For the least we get to know our physics results for paper 1,2 and 3 due to Mr Tay's kindness. . . Hear what i got to say. . . [feeling after knowing my physics results]- i know i shouldn't be feeling this happy with just an E grade, but i just can't help feeling delighted with a pass when i had expected myself to flare extremely badly, a pass to me a consolation. . . Right now i just pray that nothing screwed up for the rest of the papers and hopefully, i will be able to settle for a D eventually. . . [End] The smaller the expectation, the greater the satisfaction. . I created this and how true. . . Nevertheless, not totally a happy ending for the day. . . Bad feelings about chemistry results came, after going through my practical corrections. . . With my titration readings badly off the actual value, it will take a miracle for me to achieve a A or B for the paper. . . As for paper 1, 2 and 3, i recalled myself struggling with many of the questions and achieving good grade seems to be a low possibility. . . Perhaps even the question of passing remains an unknown for me after hearing Ms Tan revealing that there are less than 10 passes. . . I pray again, that i can pass and i'm real hungry for good grades for chemistry. . May all these happens and i will return home happily after receiving my results on the day they return the scripts. . .
Sunday, September 25, 2005I had actually wanted to end all this blogging thingy after my 100th posting. . . But well, having think about it, i realised it's not a bad thing afterall to do regular blogging. . at least i have seen it helped improved my GP, and maybe. . it has acted as a good source for me to pour in my sorrows, vent my anger and share my happiness. . . and most importantly, i realised that it had helped me understand myself and therefore, allowed me to change for the better. . Therefore, i came to this conclusion that i shall continue blogging, with a new blog address, a new blogskin etc etc. . .
So. . A new blog. . . May this be a good start again. . . and hope that there are great things to come. . .
