YOOHOOO!!!

I've finally gotten the results I wanted, yay! :D (After almost 4 years of struggling, lol!) I can't believe it: I upped my workload, and, for the first time, worked during semester, yet received the best results ever. If only I had the determination right from the start of my first year, haha!

My computer, however, decided to break down again. :( I'm trying not to spend money on fixing it again (I'm afraid I won't be able to pay my tuition loan when I graduate and the interests would start rolling), since the experts don't seem to know what's wrong with it anyway (I've sent it for repairs about 3 times already and the computer would run properly for maybe a dozen times more =_=). I reformatted my computer and it ran perfectly for a few times before problems surfaced. This time, besides the occasional refusal to boot up (no keyboard lights and stuff, only the sound of fans turning), the computer would suddenly hang with a neon coloured screen. Nope, blue screen of death is too boring for it. I have gotten bright pink once and cyan twice now. O_O

I'm so close to finishing CS already. I would really hate to drag it on until my next holiday. PLEASE OH PLEASE, DEAR OLD COMPUTER. You're only 4 years old, not that old yet! ':(

I know right? I don't understand what's up with all that pressure they're putting us through too! I once saw this comic where a bellcurve was drawn like a mountain, and those scaling up towards the top (the "average" section) would help each other up, but those on the other side (the "A" section) would turn back to shoot those trying to come over. It's really sad that some people really step on others to reach the top. (And you know how there are so many jokes about Asians being "magical" in their studies; I think it's the competitiveness of our environment that shaped us like this. >_>)

Maybe they're trying to turn you into diamonds? (I hear pressure over time makes carbon into diamonds, lol.)

That comic is kind of true, but... well, that's honestly probably part of the reason I didn't get on that well with the other accelerated kids in middle and high school. Because I was already over on that side of the bell curve and had no idea where anyone else was, nor did I much care. I was all "more books, please!" when everybody else was stressing about class rank and all.

LOL that's quite a fitting analogy! XD

Haha, I think you would have gotten loads of friends by handing out answer keys! ;P

We're carbon-based life forms. It's eeeevil chemistry!

Yes, probably.

FYI

This is my LJ for personal stuff. Friend this if you are, well, a friend of mine. :D

However, since this is a community and can't be used to friend other LJs, I'll be friending you back with collidingwithme. Complicated, eh? :P
