Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls

Tired taking pictures of myself so my teddy bear thought he’d stand-in for me.

Also, I love David Sedaris. The speeches in the book are beyond hilarious.


That feeling when you finish an essay…

27 03 2013

a good one, I mean.  When you feel like all the hours your spent on it, all the people, friends you rejected hanging out with because you told them you had to work on your paper, all in the name of… a grade.  That feeling of some of the best work you`ve ever written on stapled pages, ready to be handed in to your professor who will surely look at it in amazement and awe.

On second thought, was it really worth all the hours I slaved away at it?  Hmm.

Research essays are the death of me

26 03 2012

Well, not really.  Due to my natural Asianness and thus having high expectations about everything that I do, I now see that I’m just not that great with research essays.  I got my essay back for American Cinema class and yeah, I knew handing it in that it wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever written, but I got a B and I am disappointed.  Yes, I am not an essay writer but I have gotten many A’s for take-home essays in the past; however, those ones were focused on the text itself and not involving outside sources.  Maybe the research is what throws me off… or maybe I’m just not an essay writer.

Thank god I only have one more research essay for Canadian Lit. class left to do.  Then it’s final exams (2 more essays under a damn time limit) and hopefully I will never have to write another academic essay in my life.  One can only hope, anyway.
