Summer 2012

Summer 2012

Summer is here! Since yesterday 3PM actually. For once, I am sitting out here at Starbucks instead of cooping in the research lab, studying, and plotting world domination through coding, enjoying the atmosphere~

OK… That’s the extent of how slack I will be throughout the summer. Actually, I will be darn busy. There is no life for a SMU student.

Summer plans:

  • Clear up leftover work from semester: website for CCA and WSG work.
  • Internship. Initially, I was hesitant to take up one for the semester because of the nest point. But then again, if I am offered an opportunity to intern at a startup, why not? It will be an interesting experience.
  • FYP preparation. This is one and only module that I am preparing for even before the official start of the module later in Term 1 AY13.
  • CCAs and related activities.
  • RTs. Yeah, I failed my IPT programme.

On the bright side, I will have my after-sunset life back, at least for the next 3 months or so. :mrgreen:

I know that at times like this I should not be distracted. It is in the middle of my exam period, but who can actually pass up a good story: Gundam Unicorn. Like most , if not, all Gundam series, it has a deep story line with plenty of moral implications, conflicts and issues to think about. Oh well, luckily that they are releasing the next episode only in May, well away from my exams.  😆
