Kaffine Overload

13 12 2009

Exam TimeThe showdown for the 3 month long classes starts. Too much portions, too little time  and no idea on whats to come. Perfect combination to enjoy the outcome. This is the time when i remember about the unseen movies , which i want to see , all the useless jobs that ive postponted for many week. After killing time with many movies and videos on the net. Then it was to take care of the guest “The sleep”  Comes promptly as soon as i sit down to read 😀 . The best sleep killer i could find was caffine. Would keep me going for hours at a time. But saldly it dosent make sure i keep going in study. The study gradually changes to movie watching till the caffie effect wears off and then the guest pulls back to bed.

With a month watching more movies than i had done before the start of exams, and experimenting and testing on my lappy . And enough studying to make me go crazy , it was time when the countdown began to the final day exam. With excitement mounting it was less study and more fun. Atlast it was the D-day and the exam gets over. Time to talk about vacation plans, and start packing for home. Packing to go home another lazy job i had skipped during exam time. Pulling myself together at the last minute managed to dump all my stuff into a bag and pull the zip :D.  Home meal for a week, feels heaven after months of self cooking and canteen food.  Heavens dont last long :D.  Back to the world of all study and no sleep.

Whoa time does fly.

29 08 2009

When people say this word , it dosent make a big statment on me. Usually i guess they are trying to exaggerate. Well seem like its time for me to take part in it too. Time does fly. It been a months still ive been dropped on singapore , still feels like noting more than few days. I would love to say its the classes that keep me busy and make me forget time :D, sadly its jus 3 hrs per day and that too in the late evening. So cant blame the classes for the time too.

After the two weeks of roaming singapore and proving to parents i am really in singapore 😉 not anywhere else , it was time to take on the real deal for which i had come to singapore. Classes starts :(.   One can call the classes the most laziest class one can attend. The notes would be available online , so there would be no need to take notes . Any extra explanation provided by professor on class are also made available online. As if this is not enough , you are allowed to enter and exit the lecture anytime.  All these makes one feel pity on the person standing in front and trying hard to teach his knowledge and people leaving hall just to attend calls from there girl friends.

Our course registration was scheduled for the day after the class starts. So it was like anyone can attend the classes. Off we went to the first class of the year. With the classes starting its a interesting 3 hrs to spend . The classes are so condensed tat the entire course is completed in jus 20 classes.,  tat includes a couple of assignments for each subject tat we cant make the head or tail of , project and also directed reading. So first class was nothing more than listening to the lecture and coming back to room. So as the day arrived for us to register for the courses, had a tuff time waking up in the morning to register, found our that there were lots more of ppl who were just like me trying to register first. After fighting the 404 pages for more than 4 hours the courses were finally registered, leaving behind the project and reading.

After a hard days work on registering for the courses decided to have a break before looking  into projects some time later. And then started the first official classes of the year. The topic being more course focussed makes it more intresting , also not understanding a topic makes a dominis effect, which rules out sleeping in class . People happily leave the lecture and sleep in the comfort of bed in room rather than sleep in lecture hall. The lectures were too interesting to even miss them. The week so passed with classes in the evening and sleep all morning. As weekend arrived it was time to search project , contact professor , make discussion , finalise .  Got finalised for a project and a directed reading module atlast.

Second week made me realize what i have stepped into. Started getting assignments and completion dates , also got the documents for the preparation of reading and project. Something learnt from my two year in company worked out for me. What to do when u are under too much pressure. Just stop caring about the problem and start thinking about it one by one. Seem to work out well. Also got our student pass processed this time, allowing us to stay in singapore for the next 2 years. Why is that they give us a 2 year pass for a 1 year course? just hope the couse does not drag  on for two years.

Its time to start studying ………
