No more blood

I have ended my employment with the laboratory I was working with. Looks like my plan didn’t work out. As expected, I flunked Calculus and Statistics. Paying to retake these two modules burnt a hole in my wallet.

I am a biologist! Why do I have to study Math! This frustrates me. Imagine not being able to finish this degree because of two Year 1 Math modules. No, I have to do something about this. Practise more. Find a tutor. Pray more novenas.

I finished General and Applied Microbiology. Piece of cake. I hope I can get a distinction for this one. I am currently taking Molecular Biology. I need to start studying for this one, especially the practicals.

Well, no more blood and formaldehyde for now. Overall the experience has been quite interesting. My only regret is not mastering the more important and profitable skills. In the meantime I will go back to my part time jobs. No more blood taking though. I think I will stay away from Healthcare for a while.

The year is ending rather quickly. In the past few months I have completed 1x NS Refresher training, 1X Low Key ICT, 1X Technical Mobilization. I hope that they do not call us up in December. And I still have to find some way to pass my IPPT. This is not good. What else can I do, but work at it, and suck on it?

Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. But God helps those who help themselves.

Graduation 2007

3 July 2007 was Graduation Day. We assembled in school at 0830 am for attendance taking. It was great fun. The event finally begun at 1000 am.

We went to New York New York at the AMK Hub. I should have ordered something lesser. I couldn’t finish the pasta.

I went for Legion meeting in the afternoon. We postponed it from last Satuday to Tuesday since they had some Hip Hop dancing nonsense activity. One of the juniors, James, took the Promise today. Excellent, another one to the ranks of official members.

I met Hue Min in the evening to lend her my graduation gown. I was able to defeat the System by reducing the cost of my rental fees. Sucker Capitalists.

Oh well, here are some photographs.
