I have been working on my powerpoint slides for the whole 7 hours
& I am only 3/4 done
My speech has yet prepared, only slides!!
I'm feeling so tired & stressed now
Feel like going for a swim

It's better not to know too much
The more your know
The more afraid you get to know that the person could be
1) a jerk
2) an ass
3) an idiot
4) all of the above

What a waste of life

I had a 1.5hr chat with Prof A.T.
I always like talking to him
He is almost my friend!!

Although I only worked with him for 1-2 days
We seem to have know each other for a very long time
This is because both of us like shells!

His love is the abalone
& mine are normal spiral shells
But we discuss shells from the scientific point of views
like the mineral composition, shell formation, etc
& then tell each other's experiences from overseas
Informing each other where this species can be found and so on

The more we talk, the more we get to find out about each other
Like, he loves fishing & i love diving
Then we'll spring into another topic
E.g., can he join me to diving trips so that he can go get shells for collection?


I feel ease chatting with him
There is no authority-threat in our conversations

I felt that this is a very good bonding spark between student & professor
I also like how he'd love to join me in trips in search for shells
Which are just out of passion & fun
Instead of for the main purpose of a research!!

Like how many Prof are like this?

He is soooooooooooo fun, really
& I like talking to him

I hope that I can stay where I am now after graduation
& do collaborations with other Professors who'd like to study topics of our same interest

I wonder if anyone is still reading this

Facebook had totally taken over the meaning to blog because everyone can just get updated via statuses
However,if one wants to vent like me, planning to write a whole chunk of words, i bet a blog is still needed

Pardon me for not updating
Although you may have read from my Facebook statuses
I think I shall also talk something here

Had been really busy for the past month
Was rushing 3 sets of experiments
& finally
I got to rest before i am going to start again

In 3 weeks time
i'm heading to Russia for my conference
Which sounds exciting & not-exciting at the same time

It'd always been a dream to visit such far & exotic places
& I'm glad I've finally gotten the chance
But as I am preparing the trip
Alot of hiccups are occuring
All because of the stupid VISA
The Embassy has this Express VISA service which I can get it within 3 days, at a charge doubled the normal

I think I shouldnt care so much about the cost now for if I even get stingy about just a $140
I'm forging an entire trip of $3000
As well as an opportunity of a lifetime


I still have 20 days to work things out

& hopefully the courier doesnt screw things up!!

I am going insane
To say
I still thought I can sit down & do some writing
But with my frantic piece of mind
This is unlikely
What the hell

Peace be with me, Please
