Rae: 2 Problem: 1

I didn't end up doing the timetable first thing in the morning. As expected, I got lazy and stayed in bed until 11 a.m. I only got up because I was feeling hungry. So I made some toast and a cup of coffee then eat while watching an episode of How To Get Away with Murder (that's an engrossing show).

I was still lazying around after but then managed to do my timetables before I leave for work. It took me thirty minutes to get it done. I did my best to cramp all the classess in to two or three days so I have more days to work. This is what I managed to get:

09.30-10.30 BUSM1162 (Tutorial)
10.30-13.30 ISYS2391
14.30-17.30 ACCT1109
(Starting next week, I'm going to hate Monday even more than I already do.)

17.30-20.30 ACCT1110

15.30-17.30 BUSM1162 (Lecture)
(I hate it when one course has tutorial and lecture in separated clasess. Really, really hate it.)

So that's how my timetable looks like. Three days of classes and the others I can work. 

Timetable: Complete. 
Another problem is solved. 

What now? Oh yeah, I got new problem come up: My computer broke down. Just now. Hooray!!! (I'm typing on my phone now.) I just got home from work and was going to use it to check on uni important days because my brother asked me when is my graduation date in December. He found a good deal for tickets. Obviously Mum is coming here for my graduation. But when I turned the computer on there was something unusual with the LCD. I'm no computer expert but when I saw the static lines on the screen, I know there's something wrong with it. I tried turning it off then on back again but it didn't work. So that's it. I declared my computer broke down at around 10.20 p.m. 

Understandably, it had served me since 2005 or 2006. If it were a human, it had come to a dying age before eventually died. (See, I'm talking in the past here.) It's about time it died anyway. I probably can take it to a repair shop but I don't have spare money for it. And by the look of it, my guess is it's gonna cost me at least a couple of hundreds dollar. Buying a new one is definitely out of question. Remember when I talked about money the other night? Not only do I not have spare money, I'm still short on tuition fee. So I'm saying goodbye to it (and to TV series--damn I haven't watched Brittana's wedding episode on Glee). 

Dear Comp, I thank you for your service. I'm sorry that I snapped at you when you go slow and forcefully plugged you off when you freeze. I did you harm for countless time while you dutifully served me. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't because of you. It's an honour for me to have you for ten years. May you rest in peace. 

With the computer broke down, I got another problem: How am I going to study and do my assignment without a computer? I know I can use the computer lab in uni. But I still need it for when I need to study (or for entertainment, most likely) at home. Well, it's something that I don't have a back up plan. So, computer lab it is. Looks like I'm going to set a camp and stay the nights there during the assignment and test weeks. No biggie. Just not looking forward to it. But it's okay. I'm sure I can handle it. I've done it before, staying the nights at uni.

Two problems solved, a new one occurred. Rae: 2 Problem: 1. At least I'm still one score ahead. How cool is that?

Until next post.

I haven't been here for months, and suddenly you have tons of new entries I haven't read. What a read-fest.

Anyway, I am so happy that you have got your visa sorted. Everything else would be relatively easier when staying permit is done.

I know it is hard to keep positive when problems keep coming, and so glad that you managed to do that. I am sure you would be able to buy a new laptop soon. Wish you the best of luck for your study, work and life, and if there's anything I could do to help you, you know where to contact me :)

Heya Byq,

It really means a lot. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you. :)
