after those tonnes of assignments...

Finally, there is something I can blog about which is fun. i just read Sarah's blog and found that my life in campus is getting so dull these days. Although I enjoy being busy and such, but I lack some forms of entertainment. I could have just brainwashed myself and say "It's alright, you can go out and have all the fun you want this weekend". But week after week......sigh~
So, yesterday, i did something really fun. I DREW!!! Ya, as in drawing you know, with poster colors and such. And I decorated it with shiny beads. I wasn't really satisfy with my work although many of my classmates complimented. That that probaly has something to do with my idealistic personality---"Extraversion, iNtuition, Feeling and Perceiving". That was a result after taking the Myer-Briggs testing instrument. It's highly reliable. Because I just proved it that day during personality class when we did our project on drawing.

So, our lecturer is an American. The way she handles class is just totally different from the conventional and typical Malaysian teaching style. She brought along with her that lesson all sorts of materials and let us draw. I was too excited that I fetch a bowl of water from the washroom and find a comfortable place to start my project immediately. Yea, the spot I found was undoubtedly comfortable that my lecturer had to tell the class, "Isn't she special?"
It was then I realised that I was using the lecturer's desk whereas all my friends were on the floor in one big circle. Oops. "That's the personality of an ENFP, she'll do whatever intuitively if she needs too". I hope she didn't mind, because she is also an ENFP. I guess she understands.

Just in case you all have thought that I have been kidnapped by aliens to outter space, I can inform you that I'm still alive on this piece of land called UM. I have some other problems like which I faced last semester and one of them is difficulty in accessing the internet from my hostel. Besides, I don't have extra/leisure time to update my blog because I'm experiencing sleep deficit. I wish I have 2 more hours of sleep per day to reach my target of sleeping for a sufficient 8 hour per day. On top of that, I need one rest day just to sleep till the sun shines on my face, or I can go shopping from day till night, or just doing nothing in my room but to relax and surf the net or maybe loiter in the campus, or even half a day just to go out for a movie or to pasar malam? How can those sound so far from reach? Waking up later than 8.30am is some luxurious activity I can't afford (including on Saturday and Sunday).
To cross out my list, my faculty's interaction day was over, our group found an instrument we could use on our reasearch later, 2 journal articles on research methodology had been submitted (but not the analysis of it, yet), what is in the queue?
UM education counselling group's freshies' night tonight 7.30pm, MT meeting for CCC also tonight at 11pm, public speaking on Thu, readings on pcychoanalysis theories, sorting of Chinese residents' biodata forms for college, division of all Chinese residents into their respective families is other task and planning for all of the activities to come throughout the year.

Well, that's still a lot. I just wish that I can sleep till 9.30am this Friday. Just this day.

My days in Esprit

This is Choon, at the counter.

This is Lee Lee. I thought she was younger than me but I was wrong. She's in charge of the accessories.

This is Irene, a new temporary staff who takes care after the fitting room with me.

This picture is taken in the store with Angela (next to me), Na Na our store manager (front left) and Monica.
I had a great time working in Esprit. My colleagues are very friendly and nice so I'm going to miss them.
