School had been terrifying lately. This semester brought me to the world of clicker quizzes which is a pain in the arse! You have a time limit for the questions and the questions AREN'T easy! They account for some percentage of the final grade. I have a mini heart attack EVERY TIME. God. Reading the readings does not help. Last week, I did not read the readings, I got 3 wrong. This week, I read and I was confident that I would because it was sampling and I learnt it in JC and I STILL got 3 wrong. TELL ME HOW!
Technology ain't always the best thing for your grades. No no.
On the other hand, I think my coursemates and I have bonded more after one semester together! We understand more about each other's quirks and stuff (okay, I admit, it is more like my unique nature they have gotten used to.) Look! The best thing about university? Photo booths with pro cameras when they have an event! We are going again tomorrow to take more photos. Haha.
The module I am taking, BS8003, Science or Fiction: Biology in Popular Media, makes Wednesdays the best day of the week even though I have a 0930 lecture. I look forward to the 2 hour break when we go explore NTU's many canteens. Haha. ^^ I recommend this module to anyone looking to clear their STS GER-PE. I am a anti-sci-fi person, but I have started to look forward to weekly movie screenings! I swear, this is the only lecture where majority of the course people would turn up in because they wanna watch the movie in the LT. Attendance is not even taken and the lectures are recorded. My coursemates and I have to go to the lesson at least 20 minutes early or we would not be able to find enough seats for the 5 of us! (YES, I convinced many people to sign up for the same electives as me!)
Oh, did I tell you I was late for lecture this morning? I am so silly. I overshot my train to Boon Lay and Pioneer and ended up in ulu Joo Koon. This is really bad. I make all the efforts to be on time and still be late. Might as well sleep on my lovely bed for 10 more minutes and arrive in school at the same time.
Oh, I was just thinking if I should use a passive or active voice when writing on my blog. Technically speaking, since I am "writing" it and not "saying" it out aloud, I should use the passive voice. But it sounds so formal at times that I will no longer sound that what I sound like! Get my dilemma? I wished people still used picture language(or whatever it is called) to save me from using excessive brain cells by complicating life with grammar.
What else have I been doing? Oh. I have been telling people I don't fancy roses. I really don't! They are so overrated and too mainstream! I don't think flowers are a good use of money. They do not do anything but to look elegant and unapproachable and expensive. They have thorns and they die easily. My favourite kind of flowers? Definitely baby's breath. I am pretty sure the real baby's breath does not smell so pretty. It would probably smell like bad milk after all the sugars have been broken down by the amylase in the saliva and it becomes plague, suffocating and killing the teeth. Sorry, I just bio-ed a little. Anyway, it is often placed together with other flowers like roses or daisies or whatever. They are always overlooked! But they are actually so fluffy looking and happy looking and so wild! Looks like what freedom would be if it was a flower. I love it.
Anyway, I was going to sleep just now when my dad called me out of my room to tell me that the one or more of the mollies that we bought gave birth to baby mollies! *squeals* So I went take them out from the main tank to separate them from the adults so they will not get eaten. There were 35 of them. Either two mollies gave birth, or that was one mama preggo (ref. popcap game, insaniquarium) or two mollies were pregnant. I tend to chose fishes that looked pregnant because I was always so fascinated about it and always wanted to see my fishes give birth! I haven't got the chance to see it yet though. Spy the fishies! They look like little dots!
