Well it’s not quite April Fool’s Day here yet.
Anyway at the special request of a few people, I shall blog more. The mid-term break is over and I’ve just calculated my expenditure. I shall stay at home a lot more, cook my own meals, beg for money in my own time and sit in front of the computer and
study blog more.
I got my own bicycle! Well my roomie who flew back to Japan left her bicycle here, so I get to use it now! It’s bright pink 😀 She took her bicycle lock though, so I’ll need to get one.
This week I have to sort out my examination dates. The written papers are held at the end of the semester in end may, while the oral examinations are usually done in August before the Autumn Semester, but I have to go home. So I need to take this A4 paper and run around the school getting signatures. With the new dates of oral exams from the profs of course. Deadline is 4th April, the day I become a 6th-year soldier. (Speaking of which, my deferment for this year’s ICT is successful! Woot!)
Spring seems to be coming in Zurich. the flowers are coming out, the snow last week looks like the final attempt by winter to cling on to life. It’s still cold ~10 deg and it has been raining, but the mountains look greener than ever. And daylight savings changes the time difference from Switzerland to Singapore to +6!
Photos on my comp are starting to take up lots of space. 7GB already since I got to Switzerland, it should be time to clear out lousy photos soon. I’m not a good photographer so even the nice shots will need editing, and sometimes I go trigger happy and then decide which to keep – only that I never decide which to keep.
The deadline for one of my projects was today. We had done lots of preliminary discussions before I left for my trip, but to my horror when I got back they had not done anything to move it towards a finalized report. Last minute work ensued, and I slept about 4 hours this afternoon to make up for lost sleep last night. Shall be working again tonight to catch up on Optoelectronics.
My 1 month update is ready! It’s a huge file (~75mb – full of photos), so ask me for it when you see me online, or request via comments and meet me online!
I’m still getting static shocks. I hate it. I really hate it. And I’ll need to do washing soon, the pile of clothes is reasonably big already.
