and a happy new year. :]
2 days left until my posts will be filed under 'December' instead of 'November'.
the Christmas season is just around the corner. and the signs are obvious.
before all that, i have but one question:
Why is the Season so infectious whereas the Spirit isn't as?
ok, so i didn't really start this post to rant about that issue.
my real motive? i finally have a wishlist.
i can't remember the last time i made one... or if i ever made one at all.
the things on my list aren't what i or anyone else would expect though.
Stephen King's Everything's Eventual
The Dictionary of Mythology
The Best of Edgar Allan Poe's Macabre Tales
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Volumes 1 - 5 in a Trilogy of Five
[no available pic for Volume 5]
but i think i'll save up for these instead.
unless anyone wants to surprise me with a gift or two
yeah... um... so, finals ended last week.
how'd it go? well, as usual, departmental exams were murder [or massacre].
and the final exams of the other subjects weren't that bad.
but due to problems of a monetary nature, most of my final exams won't be graded
but i dont really care about that [i didnt study after all]
the projects got me worked up.
our java program was due in only one week. and with no time to sit in at the comp. lab i had to work on it at home and hope i had enough time to encode during our class.
thankfully, i did.
as for the 213 project..well, we did finish it but we spent so much time working on it.
it was like we spent all day long in the ECE lab.
arriving early [sort of] in the morning and leaving in the late afternoon or in the evening for a week or so.
and here's what we ended up with :
with all that behind us, we can just hope we passed all of our subjects and look forward to the 2nd semester.

we're well into the month of october. and our finals are next week.
you know what that means. time to pay the fees, cram for exams, and rush to beat the deadlines.
so far, i've got 3 projects for finals. and my finals grades may have to depend on them.
wish us all luck. we're gonna need it.
/** coming up:
* sem break~
* enrollment for 2nd sem
* ARCH-Con at Ayala, October 24 **/
//it's almost the end of the sem...and we're still missing one CESDEV requirement! ><
our intramurals start today... but the opening ceremony isn't until tomorrow
CCS men's basketball is doing great so far with 4 wins and NO LOSSES
the women's volleyball didn't do so well though... but they'll make up for it in the Allied vs. Nursing Women's Basketball Game this saturday
did i forget to mention? our intrams lasts 4 days this year [im just sayin]
all the other events will be held over the next few days
good luck to all CCS participants! and WIN!!!!
this day could have started out much worse.
so why didn't it go better than expected?
my dad's away on a business trip, so i gotta help out more around the house.
one way is helping my mother in the morning when she's taking my younger bros to school.
this sucks MAJOR when my first class starts at 7:30 on tth
so, after helping out today, i was able to leave the house at 7:35 [all the jeepneys were full]
i finally got a ride at 7:58
then i got a msg as on my way to school.
it said "Janus wer u nag test bya sah ecOnOmicz prelim."
i ddnt know we would be having our prelim test.
i arrived at school with 30 minutes left for the exam, so i had to rush my answers.
i don't know how i did. i know i didn't do too well.
this just makes my resolve stronger.
I'M NEVER GETTING A SCHEDULE THAT STARTS AT 7:30 EVER AGAIN.
since i'm a second year, i now have to participate in CESDEV activities.
eh? CESDEV? it's an acronym.
oh.lol.it stands for Community... something... Services.... and DEVelopment... i think
well, our activities range from attending seminars held by the volunteers/teachers/our coordinator, and taking part in community outreach programs.
speaking of outreach programs, we just had one today ^^
yup, it's my first
it's been a hell of a week. definitely not what i was expecting.
the one week delay of the start of classes meant i had to be stuck at home for 1 MORE WEEK
i thought that when school started i would feel much better. but i was wrong. DEAD wrong
i only felt a little bit better
the physical presence of my friends and the fact that i was constantly on the move was overshadowed by SCHOOLWORK
i dont really mind that the teachers would want to get started with their discussions
we already missed 1 week. and we had to make up for the lost time.
but the sense of dread and unenthusiasm that comes with school-/homework hit me hard
plus, im not liking my new schedule... much
i go home as early as 5:30 n MWF [yup.to me that's early]
and an hour and a half in between every class isn't as awesome as it sounds
for some reason i wanna do really good this year.
that must mean my insane drive to succeed in the future is kicking in [nus2 is growing up]
waaaaaaaaaaaaa im actually a 2nd year. only 2 more years and i'll be joining the working class
I CAN WAIT [wish me luck]
today is the last day of my summer job.
i can't believe summer's almost over. well, i can. i just dont want to XD
but at least i was able to do something worthwhile instead of just lazing around the house all day for weeks.
all the money i earned goes into funding for my laptop
since summer's almost over, school's about to start.
it's weird, but i can't wait to try out my new schedule [i dont know if i'll love it or hate it]
all i can do is wait [anxiously XD]
in more recent news, i has new shoes ^^
i thought i was going to get a new set of keys today.
so i stopped by countrymall on my way home from work to buy a new key chain.
i quickly found the place we bought them before.
only to discover, in utmost horror, that they weren't there anymore...
