[graduation teddy from friends] – V’s Flickr, 11 Oct ’07.
(My triceps and pecs are aching; see what happens when you slack off too long from the gym?)
The Cobalt Paladin wrote about a book he read, which helped in getting himself organised. After picking up a few choice pointers from the post, I showed it to V, who became very interested in the book that was recommended (and got a friend to bring it over in the end.)
Anyway, I’m reading it now and this book is really good: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-free Productivity, written by David Allen. Check it out at Kinokuniya if you’re keen.
Woohoo, graduation day!
Not much to comment ’bout it, but I’m glad it’s all over! So photos here we go.
Taken with my classmate Marthin right after we were gowned at Clayton campus. He’s one of the few guys I got to know better in school, and definitely one of the more reliable ones. You can’t believe the amount of screwy people there are, gees. He’s staying in Australia, so we’ll definitely see more of each other when I’m back : )
Everyone else came late because V couldn’t take time out from work, so it was a good hour of photo-taking with Marthin and his family before they finally arrived.
Stan (my brother), the mother and I.
My friends (ex-colleagues), ZM and SH.
The mother posing with a stuffed owl she found in the Monash bookshop. I still kinda regret not buying that, blah.
This is Diane, my Taekwondo mate in school. She graduated in an earlier ceremony in the same day, but returned her gown before we bumped into each other (duh). She’s gonna be staying in Melbourne for awhile too. She’s gotten a job over here in the journalism field, and a work visa to go along with it as well! : )
These pictures of the graduation hall were pretty small because V and the rest were very far behind, so ouch.
And here I am, waiting to walk up and receive my much-awaited piece of paper.
Girl got knocked over by a guy in slamdunk competition; apparently the guy’s not jumping high enough. Ouch.
– Try looking at this figure and try figuring (heh accidental pun) out which way it turns, clockwise or anti-clockwise.
– ERP makes it possible for more Singaporeans to own cars? o.O Sorta goes against logic but oh well.
– Rowling announces that Dumbledore is gay. Hmm, arites. Not that it really changes the story in any way, but interesting to know I guess.
– Scott Adams (the Dilbert cartoonist) has a new book out, titled Stick to Drawing Comics, Monkey Brain! Cartoonist ignores Helpful Advice. Basically, a collection of funny stories from his blog (which have been removed since, for obvious reasons).
