Ok well I’ve finished all my exams now and my first semester of university is over. Phew *wipes sweat of brow*.
But I’m starting three new subjects next semester and two of them are the harder versions of two I was already doing so it’s certainly going to get tougher. I’m now going to be taking Physics 1022, which is main stream university Physics, where I was doing foundation Physics before. I am also going to take up Chemistry 1022 instead of World of Chemistry which was for students who hadn’t done Chem before.
I don’t know whether to buy the text books yet and try to get in some holiday reading or not because what if the subjects prove too hard and I have to drop them then I’d have to pick up (a) new subject(s) and (a) new textbook(s)… but because they are harder it may make all the difference if I get in early and do my reading, alas.
But on a lighter note; three weeks holidays Hehe
Well two exams down and two to go, the good news is that my hardest exam; physics is over.
But unfortunately I can’t seem to get motivated enough to study for Chem and Stats It’s not something that I usually have trouble with but wow I’ve really struggled with it this time.
I’ve tried listening to my iPod, various locations around the house and taking regular breaks but I’m so easily distracted *sigh*… maybe I’ll have to bite the bullet and study at the library tomorrow but I really hate our local library it’s terrible and my uni is to far away to go in just for study…
I started playing Animal Crossing Wild World again (perhaps not the best time for it in the middle of exams :S but…) and I have never once managed to catch Gulliver. I’ve only seen him a few times and that was before I found out that you were supposed to shoot him down. I also really need to catch the Coelacanth and then I get the golden fishing rod *which I haven’t had in any of the three versions, all of which I own* but it has proved very elusive.
One day I stood on mountain top
and looked upon the Earth.
My eyes soon filled with tears of loss
a barren land; no mirth
When did our home become so dead?
When did we cease to care?
The whispers of a time long past
came hauntingly to me there
I looked out of my window the other day and saw the sun shining on a hill of my hometown, I thought of how beautiful a place it must have been not so long ago. Now the hill is covered with buildings and the black tar of our roads and on the horizon instead of rolling mists I see yellow choking smog.
I often think about the way we misuse the Earth, I wonder how far it can support us before the damage goes to far. As I think of all these things and imagine the bleakest future I feel like such a hypocrite because what have I done to change it?
Maybe one day everyone will see there is a need for change and I think we are pretty close now but really I don’t think we can continue our cushioned lives like this.
If we really mean to change the world then our way of life must change…
I think of all the people in developing countries and reflect on how unfair it is that we should be the ones who’s cars and electrical appliances and blatant disregard for each precious drop of water continue to contribute to the destruction of the Earth while these people suffer every day. Yet in the end they are/will be affected as much as we will.
Am I being unfair? What do you think about our way of life?
YAY The Sims 3 is here! I bought it the first day it came out here in Australia. My friend was over and we created Sims that looked something like ourselves and I was even able to make mine a vegetarian XD
I haven’t played it much because exams are so close but in 3 weeks when my exams are all over and I’m a free girl I will get right into it, can’t wait ^__^
But alas I’ve already had an incident with my car I hit the back of someone in a slip lane… I’m not sure why they didn’t go but I should have been looking more carefully. I was going pretty slow so there was very little damage luckily:
