demoralising and moralising

just got back the physics lecture test today, and yes, I failed, yet again. but at least I can do calculations now better (I think), just the interpretation of questions and theory not so good yet.

it’s getting near. I have not much problems getting myself to practice now, just that I can’t maintain the momentum for too long, have to take breaks often (who doesn’t?), do at a slow pace, but I don’t have eternity to study, do I? Well, actually sometimes the problem is more of not knowing how to do, and yet no model answer to look at.

a few more days to GP, a few more weeks to the rest of the papers, a few months to the end of A Levels…=)

on another note, some crazy guy wrote some song lyrics and words which didn’t make sense, along with a huge VS in the centre, on the whiteboard of T21 today.

——

it disgusts me when I read that they are improving polys, linking up with foreign universities etc. etc. sometimes I think they are a bit too late/slow. and why only foreign? the local universities should give more priority and module skipping to local poly students. TNP even reported some guy getting a Masters in 4 years in a UK university (3 years in poly + 1 year in university)…that’s even faster than the JC route (2 + 3 for degree + 1 or 2 for masters)….

ah whatever, I shouldn’t be thinking about this now. returning to the task at hand…

——

in reference to the recent splurge of letters in the ST forum regarding long hours in school, mr. har also said JC life is one of the most stressful (just like what mr. phang said last year). well he said it was to prepare us for stressful work life in future. All the formulas we learn (refering to the kinetic theory ones), won’t be used in future (unless we become physics teachers), and these are just testing on our skills of analysis to prepare us for future work. true in a sense, but are all these really needed? is work necessarily associated with stress? is work necessarily associated with a race? Okay, I shall not deviate this into GP…

interesting to note that moralising isn’t the opposite of demoralising, vice versa.

God above all the world in motion
God above all my hopes and fears
And I don’t care what the world throws at me now
I’m gonna be all right

‘Cause I know my God saved the day
And I know his word never fails
And I know my God made a way for me
Salvation is here
