Summer Vacation

It’s interesting how they call it the summer vacation, when it’s summer all year round in Singapore… But I digress…

Exams have finished and the vacation has begun. (for me, at least =P)
Was a pretty tough semester, with me totally not knowing what’s going on in ST2131 Probability and CS1231 Discrete Structure. At least I’ve already studied some of the stuff taught in CS4274 Mobile and Multimedia Networking back in Polytechnic. (yay diploma!)

Hopefully I can pass my ST2131 *fingers crossed*, considering how much I screw up in my CA… That and CS1231 too.

So for this vacation I’ll be working, at Guocoland as an intern. Starting coming monday, till early august, before the new school term starts. 8:30am to 6pm daily, monday to friday. I’m not sure if I can get used to the working hours.

In another news, Dogster is giving away stickers. The catch is, you have to send in a self-addressed and stamped envelope. Fair enough, but the problem is, I live in Singapore and Dogster is based in the U S of A. Don’t think our stamp will work over there… So after a brief researching (the comments actually…), I came across the International Reply Coupon. Neat! Didn’t know such a thing exist. Basically, you buy the coupon and send it to whoever you are corresponding with. They will take this coupon to their post office (must be a Universal Postal Union member country) and exchange for the minimum postage to any UPU member country. Sweet, now I can get a Dogster sticker and slap it on my laptop.

On Holiday

re·cess
-noun
1.temporary withdrawal or cessation from the usual work or activity.
2.a period of such withdrawal.
from dictionary.com

Or so they say…

It’s now the Term Break, or Recess Week. By definition, it should be a period when one gets to relax a little and do some stuff that you are too busy to do during teaching weeks. But in contrast, you are suppose to take this time to catch up on your school work, study for your mid-terms, finish up on your assignments…

Oh, the lies that they have fed us…
