Feelings.

I went to the polyclinic to get my throat checked since my throat has been feeling kind of uncomfortable since last year. I didn’t tell Mom cause I knew what I would be expecting from her — hurtful words. Dalilah was really nice to accompany me to the polyclinic. It was a really long wait and finally, it was my turn to consult the doctor.

The doctor I was consulting was kind of weird and I didn’t quite like her actually, I entered the consultation room and she didn’t even look at me. She just ask in a way that I didn’t like, ‘Tell me what’s wrong.’ I just said and she seemed irritated and not interested at all. I was thinking, why is that I always have bad experiences with polyclinic doctors? They just seem to be so mean and rude. :X I didn’t like it at all.

She said that it’s probably anxiety disorder (again), and prescribed some clonazepams (benzodiazepines) for me to relieve the anxiety, Sigh. Then she asked me to go for a blood test to ensure that whatever that I experience is not hyperthyroidism. So, I went to the lab and had my blood test. They used a Vacutainer tube and not a syringe, thank goodness. I think I prefer the Vacutainer tube. I watched as my blood flow into the tube. It looked so watery. haha. Now, my right arm feels numb and I can’t write properly. Needless to say, I can’t carry heavy things. >< So, next week, I need to return to the polyclinic to collect my test results.

I felt so sad today too. Danny returned to school today and I saw him as he walked towards Miss Lim. From his face, I saw sorrow. I felt my heart cry as I saw that. I felt extremely for him that he lost his father at such a young age. It’s just so difficult to accept. Thinking about it just makes me want to cry and tears just fill my eyes. As his classmate and friend, I’m really really concerned about him. I am really looking out for him the whole day, to ensure that he’s not alone, going through this tough period alone. I just wish there’s something I can do to help him…

Tomorrow is the interview for my DPA! I’m going to go there and give me best shot. I only have this one chance, and I got to make sure that for this one chance, I do my best. I want to walk out of the interviewing room, telling myself that I did my best and I am going to be selected for the course. All the way!

I realised I haven’t blogged for the past few days. :X I’m just so glad that Shi Min and I have been shortlisted for an interview at Singapore Polytechnic for Biomedical Science. I also want to congratulate Amanda Ting for being shortlisted for an interview at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Basically, we applied for Direct Polytechnic Admission (DPA) online and yeah, were shortlisted for an interview. I’m actually really really excited for it!! So excited that Shi Min and I kept discussing about it. 😛 In addition, I wish to congratulate Gena and Alastair for their successful applications to Nanyang JC and Temasek JC respectively. 😀 I hope that the 3 of us will be as successful as them too. 😉

Today, I went to watch The Dark Knight with Dory, Shi Min and Shi Min’s sister. It was an awesome movie! Finally! hahaha. Waited for 7 – 8 months! 😛 And, in the evening, I went to Fort Canning Park with lovely Megan (my niece), my cousins and my younger sister to watch Ballet Under the Stars. 🙂 The ballet performance was nice and the picnic was super cool cause cousin Elaine brought my favourite food!! She doesn’t know that they are my favourites, but I was lucky. 😛 They were POTATO WEDGES and SMOKED SAUSAGES!! Yum!!

I had so much to say the past few days when I didn’t get to blog. But now.. I think I forgot what I wanted to say. >< Nevermind then. Looking forward to Tuesday! 😀

Geography, I dislike you. Get out of my life, please.

I’m really losing interest in studying. >< That shouldn’t be the case, especially at this point of time. Prelims is in 3 weeks. Os is in 3 months. Don’t study = goodbye to everything.

I don’t know, I’m so freaking sick of doing humanities. They just bore me out and my mind totally switch off. I totally have no interest in them and I can’t believe it’s the same for Geography too. I guess that’s probably because of HUMAN GEOGRAPHY (specifically development and geography of food). Recently, we’ve been doing so much about human geography that I’m so sick of it. I’ve got 2 SEQs to do on Geography of Food. Argh. I can’t stand doing them anymore. I barely know anything about Geography of Food. Sigh. I just don’t wish to do it, though I’m still trying my best to do it. The efficiency isn’t there. I’m doing it sooooo slowly. ):

How can humanities be affecting my interesting in studying? It’s ridiculous. I can’t believe that I’m made to study 2 subjects that I dislike, at the cost of my studying interest. Oh wells. I freaking need to take a break from humanities and concentrate on BIOLOGY!! I’ve been neglecting Biology! Thursday is Biology mock exam and I haven’t study for it! I intended to do it today! Argh. I have a whole pile of diagrams to label and write down the functions. Deadline is Thursday too. Now, I’m left with tomorrow. Tomorrow, I’ll be kind of busy cause I need to attend a wake. (I’m really sorry to hear that, Danny. ): I’ll tell you more in the card.)

I’ll just wish myself good luck. I don’t wish to continue any further.

Eczema is back! ><

I figured that my eczema has returned. >< The heat and humidity have been making me perspire, causing irritation to my skin. No wonder I’ve been scratching and feeling itchy all the time the past few days. Sigh. I just wish this will stop soon. It’s kind of irritating to keep scratching or slapping myself.

Anyway, Chemistry mock exam today was pretty simple. 😛 It wasn’t as tough as expected cause it wasn’t a paper set by Mrs Lim. hehe. It was actually the June 2008 paper 2.

After that, I went to Little India to buy a sari with my classmates and Miss Krishnan. Hehe. I bought a black sari. 😛 Pictures of me in sari will be up on Monday. xP

Kebaya! :P

Well, Dalilah likes this pose. So, I just copied her. haha.

After school today, Shi Min and I went to Dalilah’s house (which is so near the school. haha) and tried the Kebaya! It was so fun. haha. I intended to wear a sari on Monday, so, I’ll be going to Little India to buy tomorrow. Hehe. But I still tried Kebaya just in case I don’t want to buy the sari.

Hmm… Dalilah taught us how to wear the Tudong. heheh. It was so cool. 😛 I think I looked quite funny when I have my glasses on but I looked kind of Malay without my glasses. xP

Anyway, PE today was great! We played Captain’s Ball again and they decided to regroup us. So, I wasn’t in the same group as some people. But anyway, my team still won! My team won last week as well! 😀 15 – 11 today. I was playing the game but was too dumb and kept throwing in the wrong direction. So, I became the catcher (as usual :D). haha. I love being the catcher. 🙂 I guess I’m still best at catching the ball at the ‘goal area’. 😛

Tomorrow is Chemistry mock exam! I was studying for it just now and fell asleep halfway through cause I was feeling so tired! :X I was doing some notes not long ago. I’ll get back to it soon. 🙂 After Chemistry tomorrow, I may go to Little India, then go to Cineleisure for THE DARK KNIGHT! 😀

Can’t wait for Monday! 😛

English – An interesting language that is easy and difficult.

I received my English composition today and I scored 22/30. It was a disappointment. Many people managed to hit a 24/30, but what was wrong with my composition? I know the answer. (:

I looked through my essay and still think that it is VERY LOW STANDARD. The first 2 paragraphs are fine, with the medical terms and stuff. However, from paragraph 3 onwards, everything became too simple. The thing is, I know it is simple, yet I don’t know how to change it to make it sound more complex.

Basically, for my writing, I need VIVID VOCABULARY! I have super limited vocabulary. ): I went through the whole essay several times and figured that I should describe the feelings more, making it more sentimental. Apart from that, I got to elaborate more at certain areas and describe more than tell!

I’ll do my best to improve it, hopefully to a unrecognizable piece of work. 😛
