Didn’t hurt much when I knew I got B+ for Marketing since I was really blurred and unsure about what I had written on the paper exam (LOL), but kinda hurt and upset when I got the same for Knowledge Management although I knew I had done something wrong once I left the exam room. T_T

For Finance, amazingly, I got 93/ 100 for the final exam (top of the classes in that term) though I did not get the top score for mid-tem exam. This reminds me that I actually like maths and I should not have missed choosing to study it when I was in high school.

Unfortunately, I got only 2 S*. I needed to get 3 S* to get a Distinction.

Anyways, this GPA is the best ever, 3.92/ 4. I believe my mum would be proud of me, at least, a bit. I got 3.46 and 3.47 from my B.A. (Translation) at KU, and M.A. (English for Careers) at TU.

Worse in High School, though.

Time on IM*

Sunday, 11 November 2007 § Leave a comment

After reading The 7 deadly sins of instant messaging from 43 Folders, I found that some of time has been partly spent on IM. Thus, I decided to turn off my MSN and Skype right away.

I still have Gtalk online because I send tweets through Gtalk sometimes.

Although IM does not normally consume much of my time, I reckon that having it offline would help me be more concentrated on what I am doing.

Next step I would try is that to limit my time on all websites, Facebook, WordPress, Blogger, Bloglines, etc, I like surfing around.

The activites on the mentioned sites consume my time more than IM actually.

Anyway, without MSN/ Skype on, I feel that I do not have to worry, wonder, and keep looking at the chat programmes whether my friends or those I expect are online.

Why do I have to expect someone to online? I do not know :p

An hour after I sent this post, I found out that my MSN and Skype were online without showing themselves in my system tray (so I did not see them). I realised this when a friend from MSN said hello..

Hahaa.. OK.

I changed the settings of both MSN and Skype not to be automatically logged in, so that they are under my control.. Hehee.

The Great Whale Trail*

WHALES
2 November 2007

Dear Greenpeace’s Supporters,

One click signup for mail whale

arrowName the whale – a lifetime chance to name a humpback whale.

A once in a lifetime experience – your chance to name a humpback whale.

As part of the Great Whale Trail project, which is tracking whales via satellite, we have some humpback whales that need names. Not just any names, but some great names for some great whales.

We haven’t yet cracked the code of whale language so we don’t know what the whales call themselves but we are pretty confident they don’t call themselves, ‘33001, or 37232’, which are some of the names they have now.

Thanks,
The Whale ‘Tag Team’.

Gratitude to Whatever*

Friday, 21 September 2007 § 3 Comments

Feeling ralaxed now. It seems I have called it a day already. Right, that is because today is Friday.

The atmosphere, somehow, in this company is always like this in every Friday, no matter where we are, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Australia…. And when everybody feels like so, it is very quiet and peaceful. People are thinking about their happy and relaxing weekends!

  1. Good to have 5 weekdays and 2 weekends in one week. It is then more relaxing on Fridays because people would feel like they have been working a lot for the whole week(day), and their weekends are coming up.
  2. Thanks that I speak less, so I listen more.
  3. Thanks that people talk more, so I listen and know more.
  4. I type more, and speak less.
  5. Uni is going to start again. More excitement, friends’ chit-chats, and some challenges are coming!

TGIF!
(Thanks God It’s Friday)

Stressed*

Thursday, 30 August 2007 § Leave a comment

I just had my exam on Project Management (PM) course tonight. So far, this is the only final exam that made me feel blank and upset as much as this.

Out of the 3 courses I studied this trimester, PM was the one I thought I was the most skillful and expertise in, compared to Decision Skills (DS) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

That resulted differently during the exam!

With CRM, perhaps because the instructor provided the case before the exam day; otherwise, we could not finish the exam in time after spending time reading the 10-page case study, I found that CRM was acceptably fine for me (and also fine for others either).

Although I like studying CRM, I found it difficult because it was more related with marketing (and I got only B+ for Marketing course last trimester), which I am not expertise in.

On the contrary, with PM, apart from liking the course and content, I also believed that I was good at it because I got quite good scores from quizes and workshop.

What happened to me while I was taking the PM exam was as follows.

  • I spent too much time on producing Gantt Chart;
  • I did not read through the details given well enough, so I missed some information; while other friends did not;
  • I did not manage my time well, so I did not other parts well either; and
  • I spent my last 15 minutes answering 22-point questions, while I did not even know how many scores I would get for 2-hour Gantt Chart.

S i g h . .. . .. . .. . … . . .. ..

I complaint about the exam a lot after leaving the exam room.

  • I did not think the time given was enough for the content in the exam.
  • I blamed on the exam style.
  • I blamed the unorganisation of the information provided, which consumed a lot of time reading and re-reading.

Thinking about that, I now realised that it was something to challenge me whether I could manage my time or not. And I just could not.

I could not manage time, and felt even more stressed when I faced the time pressure. I forgot many points and I seemed to make all wrong.

..
So now, I am really stressed. I will not get A for sure!! B+? B? or C?

.

Where Am I?
