My nose is blocked. I'm croaking like a frog. Hey, that rhymes! Once again, i've been hit by the flu bug. Okie, that's not new. Basically, it's a case of stress, overwork, negative emotions leading to low immunity. That's the equation for FLU.
Let's talk about the last 3 days of my crazyyy week namely Wednesday, Thursday & Friday which are obviously more happening!
Wednesday: Had marketing project meeting from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, then rushed towards LKC for marketing lecture from 2.30pm to 4.30pm which i did not benefit because i couldn't understand most of the time. Back to marketing project meeting from 4.30pm to 8 plus. This is the lastest i've ever stayed in school, so hmm i'm highlighting the significance of it. Reached home close to 9pm. Was totally shagged.
Thursday: Woke up early because first tutorial's at 8.30am. Felt the uncomfortable ticklish sensation in my throat. Immediately knew i was falling sick. Headed to school with bags of stuff, my books, my laptop, my clothes and shoes [formal wear]. Had my marketing project presentation in the afternoon. Rushed to meet my O.B.D. group supposedly to edit work count and do presentation. Was not very productive because i was already half-dead. Went home in the evening. Edited word count and looked through the report, revamped many parts because i realised the quality wasn't there [knew it long ago but did not have time to edit until then] and was half compiling the powerpoint slides all the way till 3 plus in the morning. While i was working on my laptop, i almost blew my nose off and tears were welling up in my eyes because i was too tired, not because i was sad and miserable though i was but didn't have time to factor in my emotions. Smsed my group members saying that report still exceeded word count but no one replied. Think they were all sleeping soundly by then.
Friday: Woke up at 7 am and continue to reduce the words all the way to 9 plus. I haven't even written my own speech for the part i was presenting. So i hurriedly cabbed to school to meet my grp members who were rehearsing for the presentation. Skipped econs lecture to prepare my speech. In the evening, was so glad that our OBD presentation and project's all over! Don't have to work with those people again. As you most probably can see, we are not working together right from the start. Our group is segmented. Oh well, since it's over, i don't want to dwell on it though i feel the urge to mark the particular someone down in the team effectiveness form (where everyone in the group will assess one another's performance, and if your performance is not deemed satisfactory by your other group members, you get a grade lower than your group members). Woah, i think that's so cool. Hmmm i don't think i am being mean, i think it's only fair. We'll see how things go. After the 4 hour draining seminar, during which my nose was blocked, I had a short meeting for O-A-2 due this coming monday. At 5.30pm, i left school to have dinner to celebrate my sis' birthday. Food never fails to cheer me up! Haha... know that this is overdue but still,
to my beloved sis : HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Let's talk about yesterday. Met my O-A-2 group for meeting but wasn't very productive, i must say. First, we went to macs and they had lunch there. When we wanted to start our work, the manager 'kindly' chased us out like WTH (pardon me for this). I was really quite pissed. And so we relocated to woodlands regional library where we had to resort to sitting on the floor because it's way too packed. You know, like the one here at Jurong. Perhaps, these big libraries should add more chairs and tables but really, the crowd's always overwhelming especially when the As and Os are inching closer. But i must admit, i actually get to talk to my group members and understand them a bit better because i feel that i don't usually talk to them much in school because we are in different project groups for other modules. That's sad, but i kind of like this group the most, perhaps because we are all girls! Girl power!
Okie okie... i really should be starting on what i want to say for tomorrow's crappy presentation. I don't know why i have never-ending presentations. As of now, it's 2 down, 3 more to go.
1. Marketing Project -18 Oct 2. OBD Project - 19 Oct
3. Oral Assessment 2 - 22 Oct
4. Statistics Case - 23 Oct
5. Marketing Case - 1 Nov
Then, i'll be done with this irritating, mindless projects this semester like FINALLY. I'm definitely looking forward to the semester break. Badly need the break so that i can think about my future, what i really want. BUT before that, i need to beat the exams which are less than a month away. Oh ya... by the way, i'm still lagging behind in my tutorials. Been smoking through several tutorials these past weeks. I feel guilty, so i better buck up! I am constantly reminding myself, hoping to be inspired.
JIAYOU (that's to me and everyone!)
