Study mode on!Exams are a way for teachers to see how well students are absorbing information.
With History Midterms and Music quiz tomorrow, I am still blogging. I'm just too tired of studying, taking a break to write. Just had my Biology Midterm today. I hope I did better than the first test. To me, it is slightly easier than the first one Just had my Biology Midterm today. To me, it was slightly easier than the first one la. After all, I love genetics better than cell movement and organelles.
Have I ever told you that I multitask a lot?
I'm actually listening to Romantic Period songs for music quiz tomorrow. Music class is fun, you get to listen to songs for exams!
Oh, and I'm going send in my enrollment deposit to Umich tomorrow!
Well, wish me luck tomorrow. Back to studying!
No hablo español!
The Amazing Race held by ADP Cup was by far the best in my life. To be honest, though we were worn out and tired at the end of the day, the bonding, the friendship, the knowledge on roads in KL gained and the calories and fats lost can never beat our weariness.
Gathered outside ADP classrooms about 1 something and was briefed by Alex on rules and station masters. After doing some warm ups led by Chee Jen, we got ourselves ready and on the mark of 1,2,3 all 5 houses ran to their respective cars and sped to Sunway Pyramid. I can feel the excitement and anticipation in everyone at the starting point. We got our first clue and headed to Central Market in KL by bus and LRT. It took us quite awhile to reach Central Market.
We spent roughly 10 minutes searching for the station master there and found them in Old Town White Coffee at last. And another 30 minutes was spent finding the locations shown by the station masters by photos. We were supposed to then take photos in that exact location.
Finally, we were done and was given the "3 birds" logo. Post Malaysia! Walked by foot to Post Malaysia and found the station master outside at the world globe place. We were then supposed to act out some actions based on several different countries. That was quite easy la.
Next up, we walked and ran all the way to Dataran Merdeka. The station over there was the longest and the most tiring station. We were supposed to go around KL to find 2 Secret Recipe, 1 7Eleven, 1 "POPULAR" shoe shop and 4 banks. Thank God we have Alyssa in our house, without her help, I don't think we would be able to complete this station's task in such a short time. She had been a great asset to the house.
After completing this station, we took LRT again to KLCC's water fountain. There is a pit stop rest over there. We were supposed to take a picture with the station master and develop it at a Photo Shop in KLCC. We rested awhile while Alyssa and a few guys went to develop the photos. And we then took off to Rum Jungle, a club in KL. Imagine Rum Jungle just in front of KLCC but we took the longer way and toured the whole KL before we got to Rum Jungle. Oh well, at least we managed to complete that station. Thank God we have Eugene and Jimmy, the math genius on the team! :)
After that station, we headed to Pavillion. The task given at this station was to find 3 different people dressed up roaming outside of Pavillion and take a picture with them. It took us quite some while as it was really crowded that time. Then from Pavillion, we were supposed to find the shortest way back to Pyramid. We decided to take a direct bus back to Pyramid and met DN half way. They were also waiting for the bus. It took us awhile there as no bus available that time :(
I really love the ending. Rushing all the way back to Taylor's from Pyramid. Kancheong man! Haha and we were tied with Disco Ninja at the end of the day. Tough fight. My toe nails bled and my legs were aching cause I wore the wrong shoe. -.-
I want to thank the organizing committee for organizing such an AMAZING race for ADP Cup! :D
|Yeah back to college! :)|
During my one week of absentee, people actually asked whether I dropped ADP. LOL. It feels good to be back in college but I've got soo much to catch up on. Macroeconomics is like another alien language to me. I need major help in this subject! Other than that, I am happy to see all my friends again. ADP Cup had just started this week and I am once again playing for my house for Diamond 7. With luck, I got into semi-finals.
Today, AIESEC in LC TU had their Induction for new members as well as Leaf Workshop. I am happy to see the new members in AIESEC. For the leaf workshop, I once again took the color personality quiz and fell under the "Ask" and "Emote" part. I am amiable which is also represented by the color blue. The one thing that I can really learn from today's test is to not be too agreeable in things. Sometimes, people want us, the Amiable People, to share their opinions. Everything went well and huge thanks to the facilitators for taking their time off to prepare for us.
I also learned some basic facilitating skills from the team. Firstly, change of speakers would help in one session to bring diversity to the group. Secondly, a facilitator needs to learn to listen and summarize things that people said. Now, I'm back here finishing up my applications for universities.
I have been very very busy applying for my universities. Hopefully I can get in to at least one university. Please Lord Help me! :) I'm applying for:
- University of Washington
- University of Michigan
- Pennsylvania State University
- Ohio State University
- Rutgers State University
- University of Minnesota
- Suny Baffalo
