Results was released last night at 12 midnight. I haven't been this nervous about exam results in a while. But it's all good.
GPA: 4.68
I honestly thought I won't be able to maintain my 4.50 this semester, but I did it, so I'm happy. Now, choice of specializations to be done by 8 June. I Don't Know.


Their debut album was one of favorites, and it's still on constant spin. Very fortunately, the couple has avoided the dreaded sophomore slump and has delivered a solid, layered, darkly romantic indie pop album. I say 'darkly romantic' despite the pleasant boppy tunes. To understand, read the history of this husband-wife duo. While the couple is now married and in love, the album is not altogether sappy. Sure, this album has its moments of sweet undiluted love, but it dives down to the underside of love with its sharp intuitive lyrics. All in all, it's sweet and pretty, but not without depth.
Mood:: 'weird' weird

Awesome news about your GPA, Alexis. :D You must be so thrilled! :D You now have choices open to you yeah? Wow, its exciting...good for you, hon! *hugs* ♥

Its all all the nerves and then hard work you put in have paid off big time. Enjoy this... *hugs* And get some advice regarding specializations. Are there subjects you are naturally better at, any in particular you like...perhaps a chat with your folks or a career counselor?
posted by [identity profile] at 02:55am on 06/06/2008
Thanks! I was extra nervous about this 'cos I was afraid my choices would be restricted by bad results, but this is really good. =)

Thanks for the advice. Problem is, I got the same grades for both Marketing and Financial Management. My mom prefers me to go into the finance sector, since it's more lucrative, but my interest sways towards Marketing. (Because seriously, who is genuinely interested in Banking and Finance? I'll probably update with a long-ass post about this later. Get ready. =P

Yeah I heard it. Quality isn't too good, but the music itself sounds amazing! Can't wait to get my hands on the physical CD.

TRAVIS!!! (i hope you like them too heehee)
posted by [identity profile] at 03:05am on 06/06/2008
I WANT TOO. (Yeah, I love them!)

But oh man, it's so expensive! I already spent $100+ on Broken Social Scene this year...
posted by [identity profile] at 03:11am on 06/06/2008
I KNOW! i wanna get the weekender pass which is $300. >.<

my friend was telling me about this other gig in osaka/tokyo happening around the same time as singfest. that seems more worthwhile ((: (so good, singfest should just suck it up!)

I wondered what Alicia Keys, PATD, and the other popular musicians are coming to this small little boring country. Now I know. We're just a convenient stop near Japan.

But oh man! Death Cab, where can't you guys swing by here as well?? I will gladly fork out 300 bucks to watch them. *cries*
posted by [identity profile] at 03:43am on 06/06/2008
Exactly! (COLDPLAY!!!!!! *cries*)
Yeah i wanna watch them too. I'm seriously thinking of going there for two days haha. Even if it will cost me a bomb :P

Wow, nice GPA. I haven't been able to hold that high of one... um, ever. I took the Coldplay album as well, and it sounds like it's pretty high quality. Thanks so much, I haven't been able to track it down 'til now.
posted by [identity profile] at 03:26am on 06/06/2008
Thanks! =)

Enjoy the album! I've listened to a bit of it. It's so shiny and pretty!

I don't like Coldplay, but Perez Hilton told me that the new album wasn't good. I don't know, that's just what I heard.

And hello amazing GPA. Geez louise; congratulations!
posted by [identity profile] at 03:26am on 06/06/2008
Well, Perez. I've nothing but good reviews for it though. I've listened to it for a bit. It sounds good.

Thanks! =D
