searching the extrodinary in something ordinary

changed my layout. Or rather tweaked it. I wanted to write my own codes but somehow when i reviewed the codes they use in blogger it looked intimidating. I know it is basically almost the same with normal html tags and all. But mostly it is done programming style with all the { and }. I dunno how that works yet. So so far what i did was choose a template that suites what i want to achieve and then change some codes here and there to get what it is now. I took away the wrapper that keeps all the contents in the middle i guess. So everything seems less claustrophobic. Added the banner on top where the normal mono colored banner was. But the graphics was from somewhere else. So erm credits to the person that made it. Sorry i didnt manage to remember where i got it from. I was just googling for min woo. Anyways i will try to write with the normal code that i originally learned for a new layout and see if that works. before this i was wondering how you get the post to be posted on the page when u post on blogger. But i think now i know how that works. All those blogger special tags thingy. Ya the wonders of IT. There is so much i want to post about. But i guess we will see how that goes, coz i am wondering if i should go home early
I am still here. Didn't take off earlier coz i can't find my supervisor to tell him i am leaving. Looks like he has tons more things to do then meets the eye. But most of the time nothing much which i can learn from. Or whatever the reason. Sigh, what a drag. I am here but there isnt much that i can learn. And it gets to a point where he actually got me to go with him so that he can "guide/ show" me how to do something in which is quickly finished and i need not do further work after he is gone. And on days when i do not have work. I am kinda expected to do personal research into what is being done. But honestly i don't feel the motivation since this isnt the field which i am really interested with. what with metallurgical studies and capacitors and what nots. Exactly why i am glad i didnt take E&E eventhough i originally contempelated to take it. That was also because i was more interested in the programming and telco side of it. Oh well. But it kinda makes me feel bad. As if i am this bumm that just isnt bothered and instead do unrelated stuffs. But i really rather be programming now. Anyways the third month is quickly ending. But it still seems so long more till i will be free. Chinese new year is only about 2 weeks away though. But doesnt seem like much. Everything just seems so mellow lately. Things are not the same anymore. And then class will be starting another 3 weeks after cny hols. Its long when u look at how long i still need to work but short when it comes to going back to class alr.

So about going back to class. Sort of sorted out my timetable which is extremely complicated due to all this syllabals change. Sigh sigh. And it can't be helped that i have to extend another extra semester to complete my course. So i better not fail anymore. But seriously i don't want to and don't plan to fail anymore. So becuase i can no longer opt to redo the subjects which i failed previously, i had to meet my course coordinator to help me work something out. But every time i meet him he is still hasn't manage to confirm his advice, even if he was the one that set the meeting date. Sigh. So finally hr passsed the baton to me to arrange the way i want to do my remaining subjects to me. Which i gladly took. Because honestly, i could have originally did that after he adviced me on the subjects i need to take for the replacement. So i did that and sent him the breakdown and he dully agreed that i could do it that way.

So now i have 5 subjects each for next 2 sem and for 2007 sem 1 i will be doing 2 subjects. My thesis could only be started in sem 2 this yr since by then i would have better had met the missing 4 credit points requirement from yr 3 to do it. Sometimes i wonder is it the way that i look at things which is kinda screwy, or is it life always has better plans for me. Because the way i look at is it that, this arrangement doesn't seem all that bad actually. But i guess it could be better to finish it with the rest of my batch so that we can graduate together as well as me earning my $$ moolah and starting my career earlier. But then again, there seems to be some pretty good points withstanding those and not to mention having to cough up quite a sum of $$. And he good points are, firstly i have an extra 3 months in the middle of the end yr break for me to research my thesis thouroughly, as Oon-Ee has most eagerly pointed out. Which i think a person like me could really use anyways. Then there is the part where I might be able to get a better choice for my thesis guidance lecturer as they would be less contender for the list of lecturer available in the 2nd sem batch. But that would have to depend on how the system work, and if the same lecturers are in the list for our batch.
Other than that, i guess about the moolah part, i will be earning my keep too when the time arrives, as i will only have to work on 2 subjects. One being entirely research based. The rest of the time which i think i will have at least enough of, would hopefully be used working as a lab assistant if possible. That is the ultimate job choice, since it is the best paying job i can afford to do. Then the money would be used to fund my extra sem there. Even if not, i will see what i can do with my part time job choices. That i guess i will have to work out some how or other. But most importantly i need to have enough time for my research as well. Wow, i already have my entire yr and a half planned out. Lets hope that the plot will not be lost, although exeprience tell me that i am not the best at keeping to the plot.


On another note, I was watching a korean drama yesterday and something sort of struck me. There was a part where this guy asked the girl (it was in english btw, the guy was a mix korean fr USA) " Come on, tell me what's wrong" and she says "nothing". But even so the guy just went on to say " something IS wrong, coz everytime you are this bubbly and all giggly, the actual fact is something is really wrong".

OK i am not sure what was the exact word they used, but you get the gist of it. Then lately i have been kinda stressed out, and for the pass 2 days or so i have been acting quite kooky. And Oon-Ee was shaking his head at my incoherent sentences and just plain nuttyness. Not that you guys don't find this the norm. But really, does anyone wonder if anything was wrong. But i guess i have been that way for a while now.

So what was the source of stress, if not one of the many? I haven't manage to blog about this, but almost a week or more ago, the pipings under our house which supplies water to the entire house burst/crack. What happen really was one night my when my brother came back from work, he discovered a puddle of water at the foot of the stairway and asked why no one cleaned up after spilling something. The puddle was too huge to be spilt drinks though. Later we discovered it came from under the stairs. My first thought was. "dark water" :P. aduh. But that was quickly discounted since it came from below not on top. Not to mention how ridiculous i am sounding.

So somehow or other, it was realized that the next door neighbour did some piping/ drilling/ good knows what else in the day prior to the discovery at night. So speculation was spawned as to how they could have possibily cause the damage to out pipes. But that was discounted by the contractor the neighbours hired to do the job. A little fishy if u ask me. But there is no way really to prove that. So innocent until proven guilty it is. But my grandmother which has a tendency to think she is always right, insist till now it was the neighbours fault. What was thought to be a minor problem however, prove to be something else. It is originally thought that the damage wasn't that bad and water can actually flow to the respective pipes/ tanks albeit lower pressure. Even so, a contractor of our own has alr been contacted. But we waited and waited and waited, but he nv came. So we turned down the main pipe only turning it back on when we needed to bath/cook. But it was finally discovered after days of no show that the water wasnt reaching the upstairs tank at all because when i wanted to bath, no water came out of the pipe. But that is not why i am stress. So since water isnt reaching where it was suppose to it has to go somewhere during the time it is on, since my grandmother can still get water in the kitchen as it comes straight from the main pipe. It ended up flowing in the ground under our house.

And the result showed in causing the floors in the neighbours house to crack up due to errosion. That was when we found out how serious it was. Now they want us to pay for their repairs. Oon-Ee was wondering how is it that the ground tips towards our direction, but the neighbours house was affected instead of ours. I wonder too. And some commotion was caused between my grandmother and the neighbours when they came over to find my dad. She insist they were the ones that burst our pipes. But there really is no way of finding out anyways. But the floors i guess is inavitable, even if it isnt entirely our fault, which just pisses me off how there was nothing we could have done about it as the contractor kept breaking his promise to come. What a great way to start the yr. And with cny coming. it just sux. And you think things could never get worst.
anyways there has been a song that i have been listening to lately, which i absolutely fell in love with. So here is the lyrics :
it often doesnt matter how its start
the best things can happen with a gentle touch
i'm not ashame to say
i would be more than ok
if by some chance you just asked me to stay

do i see a twinkle of hope thats in your eyes
when you smile it feels so right its no surprise
its only you and i under the stars of tonight
you need to take it to where its feels right

how do i see
whats right for me
do i deny whats inside

if i had wings i would fly
lifting my sould to the sky
if i had nine lifes to live
wish i had u to be with
if i can make wish come true
of all the thing i will do
i know tat i will be wishing for you

dont get me wrong i dont play the life of dreams
but sometimes its easier for me what does it feel so right
living it day and night
wishing that some day you might be with me
