TJCs…

I suddenly regret the fact that we didn’t join TJC invitational yesterday, because I think that it would be some sort of catharsis for us. We’d just go there and have fun with the other teams’ cases. It was seriously damn funny at times, ’cause TJCs is just like “The Arena” at times. Haha.

Anyway, I went with Jun Hui to watch the competition. We watched DEP swing team in the first round, then watched PLMGS in the second prelims and then their quarters (DEP couldn’t break). DEP match was pretty boring and one-sided, and from the match I could tell that there are only 2 competent debaters in Intermediate. I’m so glad I didn’t sign up for DEP, though it does give you connections… But then again, I’ll pass.

PLMGS matches were more interesting, they were surprisingly bad in the second prelim round (though they won) and surprisingly good in the quarters. They honestly TRASHED Xinmin in the quarters, even Jebro was “so proud” of them.

Went out later on, and I’ll post what happened in a password protected post right now…

crap.. nothing’s been working out for me.. life juz seems to be crashing down on me, nothing’s working the way i want it to, even small stuff.. For example, i juz lost ALL my history notes from sec 3.. long story. i seriously got no idea how it happened at all.. haiz.

and then i still can’t wrap my head around maths, be it a or e. I’m still having problems with it, but i still know that it has got to be two of the easiest subjects to get distinctions, and i need those 2 distinctions.. but i still don’t understand a whole lot of maths.. which sux.. i was struggling with the 1998 o levels a maths paper 1 juz earlier.. and i still haven’t completed it yet and i wanna go to bed already.. and then i still got another stupid english essay from edwin heng. Let’s recap.. first it was “Gifts”, then it was “Gratitude”, then “Iranian women”, then “impressions of Singapore”. Now? “The Teacher”. Yes, that’s it, “The Teacher”.. HOW THE HELL AM I GONNA WRITE THIS ONE???? i crapped for the first 2 ones because the topics were crap themselves, then the 3rd and 4th one i put in a bit more effort because there was more for me to bring in to talk about. But now, “The teacher”???? come on… miss hua u better come back asap..

then i still gotta research on 3 motions for NUS. insane format.. 15 motions in total, we’ll only be doing 3 of them. MADNESS………. ah well, guess i don’t have a choice.. after all, this is gonna be my second last competition. so, ya, might finish these last laps, then it’s gonna be study study study study non stop already i guess, though it’s impossible for someone like me to do that.. hah. ah well, guess i’ll have to try. no other choice..

Im still pissed with a long list of things, but i think i’ll stop ranting for now.. it’ll take forever to finish..

In other news,i juz finished reading 1984 today.. pretty good book, scary imagination george orwell had of the future in 1949… great plot, though a bit too much description at times (*ahem*lord of the rings *ahem*), but it’s still manageable. sad ending though, but i guess there’s not much problem with that.. insane book, think i might read it again in the future, unlike some of my books.. But i do have a few other books to finish first.. i still got les miserables, which is quite thick.. and i just got a soft copy of “Too Kill a Mockingbird”.. i always wondered what it was about.. guess i’ll find out soon..

anywayz, im pretty bored with everything right now.. Thank god im alone at home now.. but im sick of maths and work right now.. guess i’ll juz go to bed and see what other fucked up stuff are in store for me tomorrow…

bored… as usual

had training this morning, we sparred plmgs again… and during the debrief, i’ve been able to draw a few conclusions:

(Kevin)*debrief = complicated
(Liz)*debrief = law class
(Kevin+Liz)*debrief = complicated law class = Kevin vs Liz
Mode/most commonly used phrase = “What I’m trying to say is…”

so ya, debate sessions went as usual, except i totally screwed up my style as 1st prop, cuz i had too many points and they were all squeezed into one piece of paper… so yeah, my style became jun hui for a day…

Anyway, went for lunch with the plmgs girls only, cuz atk and arian wan go home study (wtf….) and kevin and liz went to ding tai feng on their own… so, i didn’t wanna go home to do hmwrk, so ya, i juz went with 5 girls for lunch, which really sucked btw… dead boring… but of course it beats going home.. then after that came club, where i am at now, and got some pretty bad news that i’ll probably post abt soon in a password protected post… haiz. and it’s 12.45 now and i’m still not going home yet.. im seriously BoReD to death right now.. ah well, guess i’ll go to the lobby and sleep on the sofa or smth…

despite the fact that this episode of the arena, showcases two first teams from two A Division school, it still looks like crap… Not really laughing at this episode, but I’m pretty stunned.. Because it’s really shocking to see them keeping a straight face while talking about “self-centeredness” involving things like CIP, wanting to be on TV, and kiasu, kiasi, kanchiong (yes st nicks actually said that) If it were me, i’d be laughing all the way even while i was speaking…. Even celine wee POI’ed the definitions for god’s sake.. Thank god I’m not participating in this fucked up show… Come on, guest judge is a news reporter.. St nicks got trashed by MGS 20 to 0. Second round, they got trashed again 24 to 0….. holy fuck… now, 44 to 0 in mgs favour.. Definately not the way it should be going..

Anyway, i think i’ve spent enough time harping about the arena… don’t think i should be wasting my time on that anyway.. parents are out now and i’ve resolved to blogging away in Writeroom again, im too lazy to bother doing any homework despite the fact that i’ve got and essay to do, and i got a physics and chem test this week.. I’m sick and tired of it.. Not to mention i had to finish an A Maths paper in 1 hours 40 mins today, and i had training after that…

Debates is really getting even more pressurising, with my last 2 tournaments coming up so soon.. NUS Challenge Shield Prelims round are on 3rd Feb, 9th Feb is JGs prelims already.. amazingly fast..
