GLOCCOVNAA is an abbreviation for 'Great Life of Conflict, Climax or Virtually Nothing At All'. That was the long and ridiculous name I came out for my blog when I was 18 years old. Do click on the colourful icons on the right to check out different types of posts in this blog.

Uni-disaster Week 3 Report

Everything was more or less settled after orientation as we usher in the academic side of this course. Lectures after lectures, days after days, we start to get juice pouring into our head, but mine had a very small opening. Foundation Chemistry is kinda boring as a whole. Some may disagree but the lecturer is seriously boring considering my interest in Chemistry. Despite her boring-ness, I managed to learn some new stuff, although not very sure whether it is the correct stuff.

Then there is the math class. The time table was true to its words, the Basic Mathematics was indeed 'Basic'. It was interestingly the most anaesthetic subject ever although I seem to have some aptitude for Mathematics. To be honest, the Basic-ness of this Mathematics is on par with Form 4 Mathematics (don't forget, I'm in Uni). The lecture was so boring that mhsiow got me to sit in front of the hall because she says that the lecture may seem more interesting when it is louder (proven wrong...). Anyway, I found out a perculiar fact about his lectures, he tend to go out of tune (走音) when he speaks. Although it may sound irritating, it just happens to be one of the only thing keeping my eyes open (the other is MENTOS).

Surprisingly, the subject which bored me to death during my secondary life seemed to be one of the more interesting part of IMU. Some call it human anatomy, but it is called Physiology here. Our lecturer is very charismatic and managed to pour more juice compared to the above 2. We started with basic cells, then organelles, nerve cells and today we had muscle cells. But since I was never a Bio-Lover, there were many terms that were Greek to me. I gotta learn words like Cessation, Sarcomere, Exocytosis, Myosin, Actin and lots more, all are kinda specialized.

Oh I almost forget our weird lecturer for Bioscience. From her looks, I got an impression that she is kinda new and through her speech, I can know that she still relies on her Sains (malay science) terms to explain to us. On Monday's lecture, she gave a summary of the 20+ pages from chapter 2 and threatened us to study with a quiz on Wednesday. True enough, many didn't study at all while I, the 平时不烧香临时抱佛脚-type, studied almost all on Tuesday night. During Wednesday's quiz, I happened to kena, shall I say 'Twice'. The first was bad, I couldn't recall the three categories of carbon molecules but the second was not supposed to be my question. She was asking another person when I mumbled the so-called answer very softly. Unfortunately her almighty ears heared and resulted in me craping out the answer. Throughout the lecture, most of us noticed something very weird, she has an acute mood-swing problem. She tends to change her expression very fast (fierce look to smile in less than 2 seconds), scaryyy... But she proved herself to us that she knows her stuff very well indeed.

Thats about all of this week. Once again, I got to know more people, Amirah, Azleen, Sophia, Mar Jie, Farah, Chandni, Chern Fei... and more to come.

Lastly, I would like to wish all Chinese in the world
