Woots~ short update?

Kar Mern's birthday party was a success~!
Glad that our (Yi Shen, Tiong Hsien and I) present was wanted. lol.
Food was amazing,
Crowd was amazing too.
I foresee that all of us would randomly mention some incident from the party for probably a month or so.

Went to pay my respects for my grandparents on Sunday.

Josh Tan and Tiong Hsien came over to my house to do the PowerPoint presentation thing,
I ended up doing it till 2am.

Have to :
Improve the slides,
Finish school work,
Study for the Bible Knowledge competition,
Finish tuition work,
Finish English Literature work,
Finish Bible Knowledge class work,
Type some Chinese poem,
*pulls hair*

Oh ya,
Revise and study for each subject too.

The Lack of Time

For once,
I'm not over-procrastinating.

If multitasking is not allowed,
And I must totally abandon the computer when I'm doing my homework,
I think I might die.

I enjoy doing homework at a slower, steadier rate,
But time isn't that generous.

School eats up probably 6 hours of my life,
Then co-curricular activities engulfs another 2,
And tuition maybe 2,
And there goes 9 hours of my day,
Not even counting other miscellaneous stuff.

I just can't live without miscellaneous stuff :(

I tried doing homework during the free periods in school,
But it's just too torturing.

Too damn torturing.

Sigh.

Time, time, time.


Oh ya,
Something happy,
I got a distinction for the Australian Mathematics Competition I took part last year.

So unexpected :D

Will be joining again :D

How to solve 8100030d Windows Live Messenger Problem

Been months I've been having this same shitty problem.
MONTHS.

Couldn't log on to Windows Live Messenger with my main account,
But able with other accounts.

Tried all sorts of solutions that are randomly googled,
For one, I didn't have Zone Alarm firewall,
I registered all sorts of dll. crap on Command Prompt which I had no idea what is it all about.
I deleted some cache thing,
I reinstalled,
I rebooted my comp, (duh, I wouldn't have left my comp on for a month anyway)
Countless sites I've been to,
But to no avail.

So I tried signing in with another Windows User,
Logged on my WLM there,
Went to this folders,

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows log on name \Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

More detailed : Go to any folder -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> At the hidden files and folders -> Select show hidden files and folders (this is to show all hidden files)

My computer -> C drive -> Documents and Settings -> Your Windows log on name (probably a special name since it's the 2nd user) -> Local Settings -> Application Data -> Microsoft -> Windows Live Contacts

Copied whatever that is inside,
Changed back to my main/admin Windows User,
Went to the same file,
But different log on name.

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows log on name (different one since it's the main user and not the 2nd user anymore) \Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

Deleted whatever that was inside,
And pasted what I copied from the other user.

Don't ask me the logic behind it,
Because I'm not too sure,
It was inspired by this,
The difference is just they did different things in the folder.

I think there is no need to copy and paste,
Probably deleting everything in that file would do the trick,
But I'm just explaining how I did it anyway.

Hopefully this would enlighten miserable people who can't live without Windows Live Messenger like me,
Even though meebo (a web messenger) is a good site,
I'm still sick of it anyway =.=

*note : I did not rip this out from any other sites, if it is mentioned somewhere else, then kill me because I didn't find out earlier =.=
-Kritz

OUCH.

Was sitting on the black asphalt parking lot again,
Legs crossed,
Attending the weekly school assembly.

Right leg got totally numb,
To a state where I couldn't feel it.

They really had that public speaking thing.
Good luck to those who actually were so lucky to be picked,
Out of hundreds of other students,
If only one could strike a lottery that easy.

I sorta twisted my foot,
My right one,
When trying to stand up to sing our school anthem.
It was numb AND twisted.
It was so excruciatingly painful I couldn't even think of foul words to curse.
Of course I didn't feel like cursing at that moment,
I'm just saying.

The life from my face was flushed out,
And I felt like puking.
I didn't even eat anything for breakfast,
It would be very, very bad to puke a gallon of bile and all sorts of gastric juices.

Slowly,
Limped to class.

Finished off the Bukit Kepong movie,
I actually felt like tearing when the movie ended.

Okay,
You caught me,
I'm joking of course.
Was laughing away with other classmates.
The book is really, really, really boring,
But teacher managed to feel sad and teared when she read the book,
I salute thee!

I actually scored lower for Mathematics,
Compared to Additional Mathematics.
Since when such things could happen?
87% for Maths and 88% for Add. Maths,
Great.

Physics was not too bad too.
Okay,
It was the best in class. LOL.
94%
In previous posts I mentioned that it was easy but I just wasn't sure whether the answers were correct or not.
Turns out most of them were correct after all!

(If you think I'm boasting or something .. well ... I couldn't help it. Hah!)

I got one more mistake where teacher had to deduct my marks,
But after showing her,
She just ... did some changes,
But didn't change the overall score.
I kept passing my paper to her for her to change but she just doesn't want to,
I guess I can't do anything about that =/

Ate lunch,
Went back to school,
Wanted to just inform the BSMM people that I hurt my foot and I can't march.
Waited for like ... 20 minutes?
Malaysian timing is really getting out of hand.

Not many turned up anyway,
So there was no point practicing.
Maybe tomorrow.

Limped home,
Crossed dark asphalt during the hottest time of the day,
Letting the scorching rays bounce off my skin.

Limping ...

Limping ...

Walked pass the primary school,
Inhaling carbon monoxide that burned my lungs,
Making sure that I stay further away from the road,
In case cars decide to run over my other good foot,
Which I will probably end up crawling back home.

Then,
I saw this car,
The front (facing me) was facing a little out to the left,
Probably getting ready to get lost,
So I decided to go around the car from the inside,
Guess what,
The driver reversed!

Profanities immediately came to my mind.

Swallowed it down anyway,
What's the point of saying it out when she probably couldn't hear it.

Finally reached home,
I noticed that walking with a bag on my back is a big burden,
It's so much easier to walk home without a bag.

Have to thank my father for massaging my foot.
Still awfully painful though.
-Kritz

Hate this mood that makes me stay away from homework.

1 week is just not enough,
Not enough for 82 add maths questions, Chemistry, Chinese, Malay, Biology, Add Maths PowerPoint thing and homework that I'm not aware of,
Not enough for all of that PLUS some HOLIDAY activities,
Which totally defies true meaning of a holiday.

Someone should rename it as rest-at-home-no-school-but-equally-much-homework-and-you're-not-allowed-to-have-a-life period.



Anyway,
Tiong Hsien finally came to my church :D
Along with his dad, mom, sis and bro.

And I finally received my 4th Rubik's cube :D
Hopefully will be posting about that soon.



I need to get into the homework mood,
Argh.



Oh yeah,
And someone is getting quite desperate and pathetic.



And my I still cannot log on Windows Live Messenger with my main email.



And there's deadlines that I'll have to meet soon.



And I really wish for more holidays :(



And I haven't bought a present for you-either-know-or-don't-need-to-know-who.



And ...

Sigh ...

UPDATE :
I complain too much eh?

Okay,
Let me remember some stuff ...

Morning service today was ... okay ...
Quite empty ... for some reason.

Went all the way to some far away place with Darren to buy coconut water.

Youth was quite fun!
Ice-breaker wasn't ... that bad.
Get to hit other people's knee :D

Praise and worship was,
Nice ...

The story-making part was even crazier xD
Was totally EPIC.
Laughed like mad!
-Kritz

Holidays? No, not really.

Holidays wasn't as fun as I pictured it to be.
I spent 4 days finishing up Add. Maths.
15 pieces of A4 papers filled with blue ink,
That's 30 pages.
Probably could have finished it in a shorter time,
But I was in the holiday mood ~_~

Managed to start reading a book,
But no,
I didn't sit down and crawl into the corner of my room the whole day just to read,
I just read before sleeping.

Have SO MUCH MORE homework to do.

And the holidays are coming to an end :(

Now I have to finish up my tuition homework,
Then maybe if I have a little time,
Maybe rush some school work.
And later after tuition,
I could rush some more school work.

Next morning,
I could finish up my Bible Knowledge homework,
The after that,
Will be going out @_@

After that,
Finish more homework.

On Sunday,
Go to church,
Till maybe 5pm?
And come back,
To rush homework?

Nooooo :(
I don't want my holidays to end like this.
-Kritz

A book and a movie.

After downloading so many movies,
I finally sat down to watch one of them.

I watched this first is mainly because of the book,
Which was a very very nice book.

The movie was not bad at all,
After reading,
And watching,
I feel like reading again!

Quite a loyal adaptation I guess,
Most of the dialogs are the same.

Did I mention most of the time the movie was in Farsi?
Some Afghanistan language,
Of course there were subtitles.

Photobucket

I don't really know how to judge this,
Considering that I've already read it.

Just watch, lah!
Might be boring for some ...
But it's nice.
Very nice.

________________________________________________

Holes.
The text for my English Literature.

Not bad I guess,
Read it twice already.

Not exceptionally good,
But not a bad read as well.



The book plays with destiny,
A family curse,
And a pinch of irony here and there.

I hope I don't have to reread again...
-Kritz

Holidays~ YES!

(digs out timetable, trying to recall what happened in school)

Pn Tan told us about the PowerPoint presentation competition thing,
Where we're suppose to make slides about Add. Maths or Maths,
Using it as a teaching guide or something.

The 1st one she showed was AMAZING.
If I'm not mistaken,
It was from Catholic High.

I gotta start cramming flash techniques to put into the PowerPoint,
And finding those weird sound effects to suit the slide.

Gosh.

Really interested,
But I don't think I'm good enough.

Got back my Add. Maths paper,
I was this close to getting 90 marks,
Argh.
I got one question wrong,
Which was worth 10 marks,
Really didn't know how to do that one at that time.

Got workbooks for Add. Maths,
Hoorah!
Add Maths homework throughout the holiday :D

_____________________________________________________

Watched the movie for Bukit Kepong in the APD room,
Laughed all the way even though the movie was serious and all,
I'm not blaming anything,
But the acting is really ... you know ...

Laughed like mad,
Was happy too because I didn't finish my komsas (Malay Literature) homework,
Didn't have to pass up!

_____________________________________________________

Successfully dragged Tiong Hsien to help me out with the registration of parents tomorrow.
Yeah.

_____________________________________________________

Had Physics exam later on,
I thought it was easy but I'm not sure whether I could score for it or not.

_____________________________________________________

Had the Chinese 'concert' later,
Pn. Chua sang while playing her guitar,
Amazing!

Got Chinese results back,
>.>

_____________________________________________________

Basically the above was what happened in school,
Thanks to my timetable to help me recall,
Too bad I don't have anything to help me recall stuff after school.

_____________________________________________________

List of things to do for the holidays,
Yes,
I know I'll end up not doing anyway,
I must remind myself,
Just in case.

Add Maths, the workbook,
Komsas, the homework I owe for weeks, maybe months,
Chemistry, that photostatted set of questions,
Chinese, some essay and something on the workbook,
Biology?
Tuition BM, tatabahasa (probably grammar in English).


* wonders why do I blog about everything out of a sudden *
-Kritz

Morale!

Warning : Post might seem boastful. Read with caution.

Quoting from a previous post :

Hoping Add Maths would turn out good,
If I get good results,
It will totally boost my morale in the field of Add maths ...


Guess what?
:P

My morale is officially boosted. :D

/run boastful snobbish alter ego .exe

I'm so happy!
Highest in class!
When teacher finished marking our Add Maths paper during our Maths exam,
She said no one got 90 and above.

*I actually hoped for it, but never mind. Teacher already told me I got one wrong the other day*

Then,
She goes on to say that the highest was 88%!

I really hope that was mine,
And when everyone surrounded our teacher to find out what results they had,
I immediately went to check mine too.

Someone told me I was the one with the highest mark,
But of course,
I had to see it with my own eyes to reconfirm.

Kinda happy,
But not super happy.

Erm,
Yea,
I actually expected more.

/end boastful snobbish me .exe

Well,
It wasn't that bad,
Was it?

__________________________________

Congrats to those who took their SPM results.
Even though I don't know many seniors.

Tiong Hsien's sister scored 12A1s,
As expected >.>

I seriously wonder how does she study,
How I wish I could study that way.
How I wish I could study half as much as she studies but still score the same results =x

Form 4 started out okay I guess,
New subjects and all,
Worst so far is my History.

Urgh, History.

__________________________________

Might be joining Australian Mathematics Competition too,
I remember last year,
I joined without any preparation.
Haven't even got my cert from my teacher,
The empty piece of cert worth RM30.

Hopefully they wouldn't print my results on it,
Or else I might as well burn it.

Spent a whole afternoon looking through my AMC paper last year,
Kinda scared myself when I managed to solve some questions with just logical methods and without formula.
I think my logical thinking decreased after studying for Add. Maths and Maths @_@

I need to find a way to get myself prepared!
I want to be the next one to get high distinction~!

*For your information, there was this senior who was really a professional in Maths.*

As if that would happen.
Sigh.

A Little Something About Commenting.

I wanted to blog about this months ago.
Just my 2 cents.

Long time ago,
At Kennysia.com,
A post about the boycotting of American products.

Even though it's not that good to make fun of such a sad thing,
I don't really see how offensive it can be,
But then again,
I might never know.

Anyway,
The comments were the main thing I was reading.

The Blogger was talking about the BOYCOTTING,
Not the whole incident!

Yet comments were bombarding the blogger,
Totally off topic stuff.

It's so stupid,
And so funny at the same time.

Why people just can't open their eyes to read properly before leaving a comment for the whole world to see?
They even posted their blog links,
For directing traffic purposes,
I'm saying those are wrong,
But if you leave dumb comments,
And let people go to your blog to see how intelligent you can be,
Isn't that ... kinda ... telling the whole world how dumb you are as well?

And for those who just write whatever they think,
Or maybe without even thinking.
It never hurts to double check,
Or just doing some homework.

The internet is always there,
And whenever I come across some information,
I just google up and double check,
Not wanting to embarrass myself.

Same goes to any where on the internet,
Forums and stuff like that.

GOOGLE.

___________________________________________

And those people stirring up issues about the PPSMI thing,
Saying Science and Mathematics should be taught back in Malay.

I'm not saying Malay is a bad language,
But seriously,
Why study in Malay now and change to English in higher education?

In my opinion,
If people fail their Science and Mathematics,
It wouldn't make much difference if it were to change to Malay because they still wouldn't bother to study.
Unless it's those who really can't,
Probably could have extra classes for them.

And extra classes for the teachers too?
-Kritz

Unofficial monthly exams :D

We, as students,
Swear to do our best ...

Bleh. Lies.
I don't like random exams,
But I guess it's kinda good,
For our sake,
So that we actually study.

But I really hate History =.=

Today we had Moral and Add Maths exams,
I kinda screwed up the Moral format,
But I think, HOPEFULLY, it wouldn't turn out bad.

Add maths was ...
Sigh.

Kinda finished everything in the nick of time,
Left no.11 for the last,
Just randomly used random logic thinking to randomly create a random answer,
Didn't have time to double check other answers :(

Hoping Add Maths would turn out good,
If I get good results,
It will totally boost my morale in the field of Add maths ...

Morale =.=

A lot of my friends looked suicidal after the test =/

Might be having History test tomorrow,
I really hate it.
Argh.

I feel like sleeping ~_~
-Kritz

Another one of those posts...

... about random stuff and nothing interesting.
But I still have to post about it!

Got back my Chemistry results for tuition exam.
Scored a 73% at first, later became 75%,
And as promised,
Teacher gave all who scored 75% and above RM5!

Had like loads of careless mistakes,
And some real mistakes,
As in those which I didn't study about.

Chemistry exam was quite hard compared to Biology,
Not because of the subject itself but the paper.

Oh no,
I forgotten what I wanted to blog about.
Never mind :D

UPDATE : Just remembered something,
Will be joining the Bible Knowledge quiz for 2009 after all.
Genesis Chapter 1-9 and Luke Chapter 1-9, 21-24
-Kritz

*curses*

Teacher came in and told us yesterday's history exam was not counted,
That we will be sitting for another one later next week.

WHAT!?

Well, looking on the bright side,
At least I'd get to be prepared this time.
As if I will, pfft.

There was this complaint note about the canteen,
Passed around for students to fill in.
Guess what,
They started spamming them!

Classmates wrote hilarious stuff,
Without including their real names of course.
Still wondering why I wrote my name,
But why care,
What I wrote was true anyway.

Felt very tired during Chemistry class and Add Maths class,
Wish I could sleep :(

I should get started with my homework right now,
Better not let it pile up.

Of practice for the choral speaking.
Basically we started off wrongly.
Choral speaking was totally different than what we had presented.

Whatever, lah.

At least I had a chance to meet my friends :D

Today is a sad day for Alfa-rians.
Very, very sad.

The Big Day

I was hoping that they would suddenly postpone it,
But I know it's impossible.

The choral speaking would be held tomorrow at SMK Bandar Puchong Jaya (A),
Besides the fact that chances of winning are very low,
Comparing one who practiced for 4 days and the others for weeks and months,
I hope that I would have time to talk to my friends from SMK BPJ(A).

Very tiring indeed.
Kinda enjoy it in some twisted way,
But tomorrow's the end of the dream in my nightmare.


A new month,
Will be officially dropping English and Add Maths for tuition,
Probably spend that extra time slacking around at home,
But .. well .. I guess it's just not needed.

Kritz,
Work harderrrrrr.

Dizzy,
Blurred vision,
Sudden headaches,
Withdrawal symptoms! LOL.

Don't wish to be lifeless :(
Nothing to write about,
Zombiefied.
