1. I had my accounting exam paper early this morning - on a weekend. Okay, this is not so much problem. But the fact that it is on a saturday just compounds the shittiness of it all.
2. It was an atrociously done paper that stunned me for the first… 2 hours (which was the entire duration of the paper). I barely knew how to do some 50 marks worth of the questions, left a lot of marks wanting, and wrote crap. It was the first paper that I actually felt like walking out on - because I didn’t think my staying on would help at all. But I tried anyway, but I really think that was a failure. Doesn’t help it’s a major percentage on my accounting module
3. So I brought my laptop out with me so I could catch a wholesome 5 hours of studying/note-making for my upcoming Business law open-book exam. After I had found a suitable place to sit, bought some food/drink, I took out my laptop… only to find that I had not put the battery in. Okay, fine. So I moved somewhere near a power socket… only to find that I had not brought the cable out.
Thank goodness Jon stays near NUS, and thank goodness he has the same laptop. So I hopped over to take his battery & cable.
4. When I finally got down to work; half an hour into the note-making, I suddenly realised that I had saved over i.e. overwritten a previous chapter of notes that I had made. That set of notes took me 4 hours to write, at the expense of my Accounting paper. The recovery function can’t detect it.
Ever since sixteen (which was way back in 2007), I’d always wanted to do a frontline job just for a little while: either retail or F&B.
BUT Things always have to Crop Up and my schedule always gets filled. The free gaps are always too short to hold a job. Plus, with frontline, it takes up weekends and there’s church and I really should be giving that time to God.
You see, EVERYWHERE in town is hiring. For one, I’d really love to apply for Ashley Isham in Mandarin Gallery (“URGENTLY LOOKING for SINGAPOREANS/PRS who can speak ENGLISH" - yes that’s me pick me!!!!!). Or work in some cute cafe - which is something I’ve been wanting to do since 2007.
Please, Lord, I WANT TO WORK FRONTLINE. Just for a little while, please?
