Reading Week


Day 2 of Reading Week, Day 6 of Chinese New Year.
I'm super relaxed during reading week this time round because I only have one midterm to prepare for in the upcoming week. Cheers to that! 

Had my first bio psych (PL3232) midterm previous week, and I have to say I tried my best, and we shall see the results when they're out :) Though I really don't want to admit this, I really enjoy this prof's (Derbyshire) lecture :) He really means it when he warned us at the very beginning of the first lecture, about how we should drop this mod immediately if we are afraid of not knowing what we are getting ourselves into. 

Also, though many say how he involves too much philosophical content into this supposedly bio psych lecture, it really does make the content less dry (though I don't really get what he's trying to say at times hahaha).
Keeping my fingers crossed then my perspective of PL3232 will not change when I get my results back haha. 

Scored my first 10/10 for my PH1102 summary too! Let's keep it that way ;)

Question of the day (or maybe the Semester)

Bio psych exams coming up in a few days! Essays, essays and more essays. Just realise this is the first psych exam I have that actually requires us to write essays instead of mcqs/short ans questions.
-Crosses fingers-

A lot of people are shocked after I tell them that I'm taking bio psych & abnorm psych in the same sem. Hmm, did I really make the wrong choice to take these 2 mods together? Hopefully not! Even if I did, it's too late now. I will disprove this theory that it's impossible to clear these 2 mods together!

(Bringing in what we learnt in stats - on how we cannot prove a theory, but we can disprove it. HAHA)

Cheers to a great weekend of reunion dinners and mugging for bio psych! :)

14th Feb; Valentine's Day

One month has passed since the start of sem 2! Everything seems to be going well except for the fact that I just got back my results for my first philo summary & it's..not really well done. I shall not let it affect me & I'll push on for the rest of the summaries!!

Anyway wrt the post title, once again, I'm going to spend it alone again haha. Not that I'm not fine with not being attached, just that occasionally I get a little drunk on jealousy (heh) when I see couples having so much fun together. I guess I will meet my other half someday.. (Or will I? Hmm) 

Secretly (or maybe not now that I've said it here), I'm quite thankful V-day falls on a sat this year, at least I don't have to feel a little lonely seeing all the couples together, especially the ladies holding roses and chocolates while it's just me and my...laptop. It's okay my laptop, I got you! But then again I have school on Friday (dayuum), and there are so many different groups of students in fass selling flowers and stuff. Like urgh. The <adv> have been going on in the different whatsapp group chats. Sigh.

Oh well, came into uni with the intention of studying and doing well anyway, not to get into a relationship (sorry, being sour here HAHA). But of course, manifest and latent functions both apply. Heh. 

Happy (super) advanced valentine's day to all you people out there! Including the singles too. Who say singles can't have fun! :) And to those sweet couples out there..enjoy that special day where you get relatively more attention from your other half HAHAHA. Joking, stay loving to each other & get married when the time comes and then do the nation a favour and boost the Singapore population! ;)
