First, revealing the old.
And the new..
Han Xiang told me that our check-point 2 is due next Monday, 4 June 2007. That is quite a relief for somebody (me) who hasn’t really completed anything for his (my) project.
So I made plans. I don’t intend to go to school tomorrow because our usual spot is inaccessible due to some polytechnic direct admission exercise. I arranged for my haircut at Marina Square, 1pm tomorrow.
Then came the shocker email.
I only saw this email at 10pm!
I stayed up and rushed the project until 3am (with the help of Jabez and Han Xiang) just to make sure I have something to present to him tomorrow. Special thanks to Class 95 for accompanying me through the night.
Quite frankly, I’m kinda motivated to complete the project now. Already got the momentum swinging and gotten the hang of the program. I could stay up all night and complete it.. But I’m lazy. 😉
Besides.. Who’s in a hurry? I’ve still got slightly more than a month before it’s due..
Check that out! It’s a really glorious performance from U2. Note the intro, Bono said, “What can I give back to God for the blessings He’s poured out on me? I’ll lift high the cup of salvation. Here is a toast to our Father.” (Ps 116:12-13 The Message Bible)
Awesome. Just awesome. Bono gives a soft “amen” at 3m20s of the video; it gives me goosebumps.
Somehow, the video gives me the Emerge feeling. Which reminds me to get my Emerge haircut tomorrow. 😛
And, oh, Heroes is really a super ultimate fantastic TV serial. I’ve been chasing the episodes like crazy. Watch it if you can! (Alternatively, you can ask me for it.) 😀
I was on my way home just now and the journey from Bedok to Bt Panjang can be quite a long one. I was contemplating if I should plug in my earphones and listen to the radio, but I dismissed the idea.
Had my train of thoughts running wild throughout the journey. I pictured myself rowing in a little boat and being led out into the big and wide ocean, where the sight of any shore has faded into the horizon.
I am not somebody that gives up easily, but I know my limits. I am not afraid to take on huge tasks, but I know I need assistance.
In this big and wide ocean, I am lost. I do not know which direction to head. If I continue rowing, I may be rowing near to an island. But it may also mean that I am drifting further from shore and end up getting nowhere.
Sometimes I blame myself for being led out so gullibly, but I must finish what I started. Some people tell me to take a step back, while others encourage me to continue going forward. To row back would mean surrender and defeat, and that’s not what I was taught. I was taught to have an earnest persistant application to any undertaking, continuing to strive after my goal, with focus, without giving up.
Looking back, I’ve come very far. I don’t want to go back, the only way is forward. I rather die in the ocean, knowing that I tried, than to row back and live with regret for the rest of my life.
The ocean is indeed very big, but I am bigger. Many times, the answer can be found inside of myself. I think I already made up my decision a long time ago.
I’m going to keep rowing.
Ngee Ann Polytechnic has a new gym facility to cater to my needs. It’s quite a waste that it’s already my final year and I may not get to frequent this place anymore.
I’m still working out at CCK gym but I guess I’ll be checking out this gym soon.
Was relaxing in one of the classrooms in school this afternoon and I connected my laptop to the projector so that I could watch Heroes.
I tell you, the audio and visual effect I got from this NEC LT380 projector was so phenomenal, awesome, majestic, excellent, luxurious, astonishing!
This projector was released in 2006 by NEC and it costs more than $3000. I think I’m going to keep returning to this classroom just for the projector. I really enjoyed the experience I had with this cute-looking portable projector.
I simply love the projection and motions. Everybody loves a good projector that doesn’t lag, which is most important.
To make matters worse, I feel like getting one for my own room. 🙁
