chamber is fun. especially reading sessions. cause screwing up in a reading session is more or less normal. i want another reading session! should have them more often. once a month is so not enoguh.
so i was in school on saturday from 830 am to 10PM. i'm mad. i spend more time in school than at home. wth. but the reading session was worth it. wheee. beethoven's 7th symphony is a funky piece. i wanna play it again.
then tan kang ming decided to promote himself by announcing that he was having a show tomorrow (sunday, which was yesterday. anyway). the main thing that appealed to me was... it's free!!! i mean, how many times do you get to watch a concert at VCH for free.
but apparently it didn't appeal to the others. as of that night, only chen jie was going. so then the next morning i figured, ah wth, jsut go and see what it's like. it's free after all. then found out zab was going. so that made three people. wonderful.
so i made my way there after having programme comm meeting in school. (take note: this means i was in school every single day of the last one week). thought i was late. and of all people to meet there, i chanced upon sean low waiting on the steps of VCH. apparently zab had asked him to go. so there were 4 of us. yay. but zab was late. haha. traffic jam. so we missed like the first few minutes of the show. it was ok i guess. didn't like the ravel very much. wayy too dissonant. come to think of it, the franck wasn't much different either, what with 'turbulent emotions' and stuff.
so then three of us (minus chenjie. dunno where he disappeared to) decided to go eat at esplanade. since there was only one restaurant there where i could eat, they agreed to go there. and had a nice (though expensive) dinner. then watched a bit of one of the free shows, which had a crappy band playing. and then we went for ICE CREAM!!! at haagen-daz. muahahahaha. me and slow kept on tempting zab until she finally gave in. so we ordered this monster fondue. complete with melted chocolate and everything. wheeee!!!! then realised that there was school the next day. so we went home.
so now the homework is really starting to flow in. and i have officially fallen asleep for the first time this year. and it just so happens to be.... chem. again. but well. there's still time to make up.
so we finally met our math teacher, mr ng yew hong, who basically told us his life story. the only thing he didn't say was where he was born. and he seemed to be telling us that everything he does is pointless. not pointless as in there's no point, but pointless as in 'it's open-ended'. i'll leave you to ponder on that.
anyway, he has this funky website for the math students. on it is probably gonna be our homework or whatever, but so far the only things that are there are a survey and a personality test. the survey is full of funky trick questions. but the personality test is unlike anything i've ever done before. so it has classified me as an INFP:
Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving
well here's the description for what an INFP is. take your time reading it. i'm too lazy to bother=P
then again i'll just post the link here.
