Museum day!

Met up with AA from the states today at St. Paul’s Cathedral…

Then we headed to the Tate Modern crossing the Millennium Bridge:

It was my first time visiting The Tate, and I was well impressed:

I also found a new book to read: Every Hand Revealed by Gus Hansen… Damn good..I highly recommend it to anybody keen on poker!

After a grueling two weeks…

…Freedom at last! Still have a Japanese exam on June 4th but I’m not too worried!

Exams ended on Friday, so on Saturday I met up with Thien for yum cha and shopping around Oxford Circus.

And then met up with Chloe and Kenta and enjoyed the sunset in Hyde Park…

Afterwards we went to Chinatown for some bubble tea and then went home to celebrate the ending of exams with Ron and Victor… school’s out!

Halfway through exams…

On our way to the Westminster tube station after exams were over, we stumbled upon a group of Sri Lankans protesting outside about the Tamil Tigers.

You do not feel nervous in social situations, and have a good impression of what others think of you, however you experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You regard intellectual exercises as a waste of your time. You do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important, however you are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgments based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy. You have a strong sense of duty and obligation, and feel a moral obligation to do the right thing.

Think if my personality type were a music genre, it’d be dreampop. Been listening to a lot of shoegazing music lately and they always seem to fit my mood.

First post

During this examination period, I’ve been somewhat unproductive on days where I was meant to be studying, so I’m starting a blog to:

1) Record day-to-day events, store photos and thoughts

2) Have a greater incentive to spend each day productively (that means getting out of bed earlier)

Hope this goes down well!
