[stupid bird] – V‘s Flickr, 26th Apr ’07.
As of 25th April 2007 (yesterday), my network administration report has been completed! *insert maniacal laughter*
.. all right, that probably wasn’t a big deal. But it really feels good to finish ahead of the deadline. I’m still making minor edits to the content right now though, haven’t got anything better to do after all heh heh. And it actually feels like an accomplishment to look at my finished work, and see something that looks like a professional research paper. It feels that way so long as I don’t think about the late nights and crazy research done. At least I was working with familiar ground on this project so it wasn’t that bad.
The next one promises to be yet another shitty one though; I hate business assignments sigh. I am so bloody glad that I am not taking a business degree. IT assignments tend to be more straightforward, with none of those stupid theories and concepts some long dead person thought up of. There’s our dear beloved Maslow (everyone should know of him I guess), and there’s a shitload of other people I have to know Z.
And there’s another two assignments after that, one on Unix networking, and another network administration project where we have to draw up a proposal for some company or other. Note the use of we; yes it’s a group project. I hate group projects -.-
Well let’s talk about other stuff. Here’s something I took just now while talking a walk in the city. Well, the walk was sorta incidental ;p I was actually out grocery shopping but well, opportunities to get a breath of fresh air are treasured most especially after being cooped in the house for a few days straight.
And I took the time to walk around, doing what else? My favourite pastime over here, photography. I read a post from the Online Photographer last night which made me think about the subjects I should be taking, and so I’m trying hard to think out of the box and capture something more alternative than the usual “ooooh nice scenery!” pictures. Well, trying to.
This was probably the best shot of the day; taken at QV shopping centre if you know where it is.
Note: intentional blurring of passersby, my hands are not that shaky -.-
Here’s me last week, taking the train home after classes. This is one of the really old trains; note the style of the seat cushions, whew.
V thought this pose looked especially nerdy/funny o.O So here it is. I hope you people either laugh or throw up : )
I’ve been playing basketball more regularly over here that I did in SG, which is really a good thing. New people, new court, different playing styles, it was kinda hard to get used to at first. And of course, the damn height of the rim. It took me a week before I could get used to the damn basket. It feels good to be back on the court again, and an indoor court at that. I’ve never had much chance to play indoors back home.
And of course, there’s bad days and good days. Bad days mostly in the first two weeks of play, when I couldn’t make shots, couldn’t keep up with the game and got totally trashed. Since then everything’s been good. I’ve had good shooting days, and days where I kept up with every game, and in some cases shut down the guy I was guarding totally. Everyone who’s played with me should know that my shooting’s never been fantastic, but defense has been something I’m pretty confident in. To be able to stop the opponent totally and the exhilaration of blocking his shot is as always.. shiok : )
Too bad there’s no one to share these feelings with. Having V around is all well and good, but you can’t probably expect someone who’s not into the game to understand stuff like these heh heh.
– Lenovo makes a hell of a pricing error on the N series laptop; I certainly don’t remember getting my N100 for $192k. – courtesy of Ed.
– Sony has this Vaio deskop which looks really good (but the specs are similar to my N100, duh. Not too good isn’t it?)
