How I Got Lost.

British Adoration.

Maybe it’s the way they talk, express themselves with their cool British slang, or their sense of humor. Whatever it is, god, it’s gooooood. Haha.

Nearly Famous Cast

Cast Of The E4 Television Show "Nearly Famous"

These past couple of weeks, I’ve been keeping myself busy with a couple of Britsh television shows and movies (Skins,  Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, The Office, The Inbetweeners). There’s this new show called “Nearly Famous“. Well, new to me, that is. It aired sometime in 2007. It got canceled after only six episodes, but it’s pretty neat. Basically, it centers around 4 teenagers who attend a prestigious performing arts school in London. It’s not as good as “Skins”, but it’s not bad. Haha.

And then there are the British movies. “Love Actually”, “About A Boy”, “Bridget Jones Diary”, etc.

There’s just something different about them. Don’t get me wrong, American television and movies are great, but the British are more expressive, in a way.

Take “Skins”, for example. People compare it to shows like “Gossip Girl” and “The OC”. Yeah, there are the similarities, but “Skins” seems more real. It shows exactly what teenagers are going through. More truthful, in a way.

I don’t think I’m even making any sense. Am I?
(I guess what I’m trying to really say is that I love the British. Haha)

They have the “Nearly Famous” episodes on Youtube, if you want to check it out. Here’s the promo of the show.

JAE Results.

Posted in Education by Satish Vijay on January 31, 2009

I turned on my cellphone yesterday morning and there were like twenty text messages asking me what school and course I got into. As I searched through the messages, I couldn’t find the one with my JAE results. Then about a half an hour later (8:30 AM) I received this text saying that I got accepted into Singapore Polytechnic’s Biotechnology.

My reaction? I started screaming “FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! SHIT! FUCK! STUPID SHIT! FUCK! DAMN SHITTY FUCKBALLS!”  (real classy, i know)

I really wanted Biomedical Science. Biotechnology was my third choice. Biomedical (Singapore Polytechnic) was my first and Biomedical (Ngee Ann Polytechnic) was my second.

Yeah, you’re probably wondering why I chose Biotechnology if I didn’t like it. Well, I didn’t really like any other course except for Biomedical Science. So basically, my 3rd to 12th choice were not of my greatest interest.

I went to the Singapore Polytechnic website and I looked up more on the course (something I should’ve done way way way earlier). Well, it turns out that Biotechnology is basically more about the plants, cells and DNA. Now, I’m scared because those were the topics that I weren’t good at in Biology.

There’s no point appealing.  The chances are very slim. Oh well. I mean, in a way I should be grateful right? Because I managed to get into Singapore Polytechnic. It’s like the best Polytechnic. And Biotechnology is a good course , or so I’ve heard.

Something New.

I never really thought of using WordPress. Probably because it always seemed too professional.
I’ve tried Livejournal, Blogspot (my least favorite) and Xanga.
So, why not WordPress, right?
