1/3 way

having mashed potatoes and coffee for breakfast...coz we don't have bread...huhu..

anyway...4 months have passed...how time flies...9 assignments, 2 exam papers and one week to do absolutely nothing but go to london, have fun with sis and continue having fun in liverpool and maybe manchester? lets see...

other than studies, my sosial life has not really been..aa...flourishing? i've yet to go to any pubs or clubs for simple drinks and live music...i've not dated for like a hundred years since coming here...i've not travelled alone (which was of huge irritation to han...hehe)

i've made friends with about everyone in class, close with some, but not have d chance of actually going out with them other than for studies or dinner at one of their homes...sucks i know...o well...i still have 8 months to repent...maybe i could start tonight? lets see :)

feeling alone

you know the feeling of being surrounded by people, but feeling alone? i go through that quite often these days, especially at home. weeks and weeks without classes were torturous, except for the times when i was somewhere else, on holiday.

you see, its not that im not close with my mates. they are superb individuals. but they seem to have a life of their own and its hard to penetrate or to be part of it. its good i guess in a way, where i get my own space. i think.

one is very very reliant on skype. im not exagerating, but she talks to her buddies back home from the minute she wakes up, till just before sleep. i do talk to her, if we were walking to the shop or if we met in the kitchen. thats it. wonder if i shud just cancel internet...if i was that desperate, but then, i wouldnt be able to blog..huhu.

second one is a vampire. metaphorically speaking of course. she sleep during the day, and awake the whole night. so i get to meet her in the kitchen at night, or when she gets bored of studies, she'll come dance in my room. hehe.

its not that im complaining, im just feeling lonely. grrr...

semester 1...almost there...

its been 4 months now since my arrival...how time flies...i've just submitted my 8th and 9th assignment for d semester and it feel gooooooooooooooddddddd......

next up are 2 exams; one is open book with many many calculations and limited time...i guess for this test, its all about speed...so i need to start timing myself for the past year exams...second one is the classic exam where you need to memorize, but since this is masters, memorizing does not get you anywhere, without case study examples for every definition and purpose of all d titles in supply chain management..hehe...basically there are 11 chapters, with about 7 to 10 mini titles for each chapters which makes it about 77 to 110 definitions, formulas, graphs and case studies to remember...die...

i've done my note...doing d mind mapping thingy...n hoping to God that my brain would remember all these...shites! after the 20th, im free!! rewarding myself with Jamie's Italian then :)

Happy New Year!!

2011 came and went...

As a reflection...I was going through my diary few hours ago on my 2011 resolutions, I am proud to say that I have achieved all of what I wanted to...I became Senior Manager...checked! I am in UK doing my Masters...checked! I am a proud owner of a property...checked! I am better at my .... checked! I didn't actually write anything about relationships or weight loss hopes last year, surprisingly...so I guess its OK then, that I didn't achieve both? Or was that why I didn't? hehe...let's see if I did it this year...

Anyway...I look forward to 2012...I am officially then 1/3 of a century old, I would have completed my Masters by then, InsyaAllah, and who know...maybe Mr. Right? My list this year is simpler...maybe because I'm here, away from home, with nothing much to do but study, travel (if I had extra pennies) and pray to God...(see why I love it here so much?)

Though its a quiet night here at home, don't know much about what's happening in town though, probably full of them drunk Englishmen, I'd just like to say...Happy New Year and may all our wishes for year 2012 come true!! Amin...
