This weekend was kinda boring. Didn't really do much with it. The only significant thing we did was to celebrate pipi's nephew's birthday on Friday night, with 2 cakes and a few presents.
Friday afternoon was the nationwide release of the GCE 'O' level results. But Saturday was the release of something much more important. On Saturday evening, I recieved a brownish envolope in the mail. Carefully opening up the envolope, i spilled out it's contents of a few sheets of white paper. I took a deep breath and read it... "SIM has accepted your application for the course in Computing and Information Systems".
Ok, it didn't really say I was officially accepted, but rather stated that I had to attend the bridging course in 'A' Maths and pass it in order to be accepted for the course. So, theoratically, since I have to attend the bridging course, which is held in SIM itself, doesn't that mean I'm already an official student of SIM?
Actually, to tell the truth, I wasn't the least bit worried when I was opening the letter at all. Judging from information gathered from my reliable sources, I've heard of students who's grades were 10 times worse than mine but who were still able to get applied into SIM. Well, so much for going to a top-notch school. But anyway, I still will not cancel off my wishlist for entry into SIM yet, until I'm a full fledged SIM full-time student.
So it says that I have to take a bridging course in Mathamatics which will start around March and end with a written exam around May. So that equates to 2 months of night classes after work on Mondays and Thursdays. And hopefully it won't drain me too much for me to stop my gyming routines.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, in fact, it's just a few steps ahead. 2 more days to be exact... And I still have no plans whatsoever on how I'm gonna spend my Valentine's Day.
P.S. I still think it's just a scam by florists to charge people 200% more for 50% less flowers, so don't expect to be recieving any flowers from me during the day.
Here are some interesting facts that most of you wouldn't have already known...

It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself. (How did they study this?)
