Lots to do.
October 10, 2008

This weekend will be pretty packed =T

Thankfully I’ve been hearing that my Biochem lab is due on Tuesday instead of Monday because of Thanksgiving, which is nice… gives me some more time to look it over and stuff.

Tomorrow there might be a RX-8 meet at Formula Kartways that Peter and I will go to. Apparently there will be a lot fo guys there that AutoX their 8’s on a regular basis, so it’ll be nice to see how well I stack up against them on the track!

Yesterday I found out that 40gig PS3’s trade in at 230 which is great because I’ve been meaning to get an XBOX360 for quite some time for Fable 2 and Halo 3. Originally I was going to trade my 60gig PS3 in, but I see the 60 gigs as the best that Sony put out seeing that it has the card-reader, wifi, 4 usb ports, a decent amount of space and above all – the emotion engine. Besides, I have some centimental connection with that PS3 since it was the first big purchase I made after my job. So I talked to Peter about it and he said he would let me trade his 40gig PS3 and take my 60. He didn’t seem to mind anyways since he has always liked mine more than his.

A few games that I’m looking to get are:

-Fable 2

-Fallout 3

-Halo 3


-Rockstar presents: Table Tennis

Anyways, this weekend was supposed to be a big gathering at John’s house for Thanksgiving, but we’re all busy this weekend soooooo it’ll be a quiet weekend at home with the family.

Sorry about jumping around so much, I write as things come to my mind!



It’s about to hit the fan.

It’s that time of the semester… midterms! First wave will go: Nutrition, Economics, Microbiology, physiology and finally Biochemistry.

I’ve taken a new approach to this school year, which is to have more fun. In the previous years, I didn’t have much fun besides going out a few times with the FLC and with Irene, however as a whole, all I really did was play some games, study, and the odd trip to the gym to help make myself feel better.

This year is different, I’m pursuing some things that really interest me, like Irene and I have joined a hip-hop class, which is exhausting but rewarding. I was really hesitant to join until Irene told me that if I joined she would too, so what the hell I went for it. The people in the class are all great… since we’re all new to this, it’s a nice learning experience for all of us. 

Photography has been an interest of mine for quite some time, so I joined the VicXposure club. They offer darkroom access and rentals of their DSLRs and SLRs! I’m hoping I can rent their D80 and play around with it for a while.

Oh, and Irene and I have also formed a table tennis (ping pong) team for this intramural tourny. Our team is called SUPERoxide Dismutase, and it consists of Irene (the captain), myself, Johnny, and finally Vivan. Haha although our team is not so strong in the skill department, this whole thing is geared to have fun! 

Finally I’ve commited myself to a 3/week gym routine. I figure I have waited long enough, and besides, I’m paying for this gym in my tuition…might as well make the most of it!
