Premature Nostalgia

Posted on 17 Aug 2008 under GNEC, Life

I’ve caught a cold and I might catch a fever too, because every now and then I feel like I’m getting very slightly feverish. Hmm…maybe I’m hoping that I’ll get fever too. I’m not looking forward to going to college tomorrow, and the strange thing is that there’s no reason not to, really. Sure, there’s […]

The results are in, the show’s over.

Posted on 21 Dec 2007 under GNEC, Journal/Life Updates

Breaking my tradition of pre and post-exam blog posts, last semester, I just went ahead and wrote the exams. I was hoping to have done well enough to get 75% or more, but when the results came in a couple of days ago, I was shocked at my result. I’ve scored 82.8% this time, and […]

Holiday Report and Back to College Yet Again.

Posted on 08 Sep 2007 under GNEC, Journal/Life Updates

In case you didn’t know, I’ve had the last couple of weeks off from college. (Basically, supplementary exams have been being conducted for those who failed in the last end-of-semester exams, and since I didn’t fail in any, I’ve had the time off). So, how have I spent the last couple of weeks? I had […]

Corporal Punishment

Posted on 23 Jul 2007 under GNEC

Corporal punishment is forced pain intended to change a person’s behaviour or to punish them. Historically speaking, most punishments, whether in judicial, domestic, or educational settings, were corporal in basis.In the modern world, corporal punishment has been largely rejected in favor of other disciplinary methods. Modern judiciaries often favor fines or incarceration, whilst modern school […]

College Update

Posted on 13 Jul 2007 under GNEC, Journal/Life Updates

So I realize I’ve not blogged in about 12 days. A good time to update you about the situation in college (basically, all other aspects of my life are the same old, so there’s nothing new to report). As I said, most subjects still don’t particularly endear me to them. We do have good faculty […]

Exam Results : I should have done better

Posted on 18 Jun 2007 under GNEC, Journal/Life Updates

“I should have done better” — big understatement. “I’m disappointed” — bigger understatement (actually, it’s more like a lie because I’m not disappointed, I’m pretty pissed off at myself… actually pissed off at the correction standards this time) I’ll get straight to the point, shall I? I got roughly 67%. Basically, that’s really really horrible […]

Contradiction

Posted on 05 May 2007 under GNEC, Life, Random

I’m home alone for 3 days. So basically, unless I speak aloud to myself, there’s silence in the house. I woke up early this morning to do some last minute reading for today’s exam – STLD (Switching Theory and Logic Design). At 5.35am, I opened the door to check out the outside world. It was […]

Of Exams, Predictions and Free Online Space

Posted on 28 Apr 2007 under GNEC, Humour, Journal/Life Updates

So, exams start day after tomorrow. YAY! (Sarcastic “yay” in case you’re wondering). This time, I’d better do better than last time. I’m hoping to get >85%, but realistically aiming for 82+. Since most of you don’t know any of my subjects (and consequently, my talking about them would probably be a waste), here’s a […]

The Acidic Side of Life’s Wicked Sense of Humour.

Posted on 23 Nov 2006 under GNEC, Humour, Life

If you know me, you know that I know that we all know that life is a bitch (see all posts under the “Life” category ;)). But did you also know that it has its own darkly ironic and twisted sense of humour? Well, now I do (too). Tomorrow’s the last exam – SS. Now, […]
