i'll tell you why no one would want to remain jobless for extended periods. it's the same fear as being stuck in a huge empty warehouse where you're strung up high admist steel cords of high tension silence that pierce your ears with its deafening shriek.

6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, 7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. 8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? 9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

exams are starting this week! hohoho. i'm so NOT in the mood for revisions and stuff. help! i'm having ume sake in the morning. i need more of that stuff.. anyway here's the lowdown on my modules and stuff (yes i'm lounging into a rant so skippity skip for all rubbish intolerants)(kono nomimono wa, totemo oishii deshiyo..)
well what's more disappointing than having STUDIED for a subject and despite that failing for it?? i read 3 chapters for the mid term accounting test and still scored like a P (which stands for a pass). that would have sounded pretty if not for the fact that 25% scored VG (very good), more scored G (good), and there you have the AAs (above average) and A (average) finally those at the bottom rung P and WP(weak pass). it's absolutely demoralising. i understood those chapters when i was readding them but the questions are all totally in another league of their own. pfft!!
well i think i'll start
revision after a couple of futurama episodes. Sigh. the weather is lovely but the week has to start in this tone.

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a figure in the distance. As he got closer, he realized the figure was that of a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing a starfish into the ocean. The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference for that one.”

Happy new year folks! 2004 is so surreal. but sometimes i refer to the present year as 2005. it's getting hard to know exactly where you stand on the timeline when days/months/years just glide into a whole messy pool like hot goo.
i won't be making resolutions this year because it's depressing to realise you've forgotten what resolutions you've made when you're stuck in the middle of the year. i love year ends/beginnings. somehow there's a sense of achievement that i've survived the year in one piece, that somehow all the negative events combined weren't enough to pull me down. that's not without God's care of course, and all my friends and parent and relatives! not to mention those pleasant moments that altoghter added outweighs the negatives!
mm, that's all for now! take good care and enjoy the coming year :)
