Mid-Term Break?

Time flies and six (!) weeks have passed since school started. Now is the mid-term break and I don’t really feel that “mid” at all. lol. It’s like we only been through a bit and then now half is already gone? University seems like a crash course now, with modules one-textbook-thick being squeezed into a period of less than 4 months. Amazing.

It seemed like yesterday was orientation. There was a variety of activities with Mid Autumn Festival just passed, as well as finishing nuSTUDIOS Film School. Just had my CS1231 Logic Quiz, and it was very tough. However, I managed to pass it, which is quite amazing.

There is not much of a break when everything seems to be pressing for time. There’s programming lab assignment, marketing project, film art project, and not forgetting 4 mid-term tests spread over 1-3 weeks after the break. And plus catching up with friends and all. Sigh.

Just went to play badminton and table tennis with my airforce mates today. I have not played badminton for ages, and always thought I could not play well as I can never hit the shuttlecock well. Surprisingly, it was not that bad after all. I was able to return the shuttlecock most of the time, and only had problems serving the ‘correct’ way. Had a good workout.

Now I’m struggling the stupid programming lab assignment, which is taking up a lot of time. And need to study for econs…

The only thing

I remember the last dinner we had
You cooked for us, the whole family
The only dish I could remember
Was the salmon wrapped in aluminium foil
The only thing I could remember
Was that I started eating before you even sat down
While you were still serving the soup.

I remember the last movie we watched
We watched it as a family
The only thing I remember
Was that you like the music from it
And it was Royston Tan’s 881.

I remember the last tour we went
We went to Taiwan with Aunt Jo
The only thing I remember
Was probably the happiest photo I’ve ever taken of you.

I remember my 21st birthday
But you were not around to celebrate with us
I remember the last Chinese New Year
But the family reunion dinner was not much of a reunion.

I remember the last night
I went to Bliss cafe with my friends
The only thing I remember
Was that I did not get to say my last ‘Good Night’ to you.

I remember on this day last year
You left us for a better place
The only hope I have is in God
And to see you once again in future.
