Trudging through Poly week 2

Well, its wednesday of the 2nd week of SP. Finally got some homework to do, not to mention a speech to write for tomorrow's Oral Communication class and Mechanics tutorial. Today, I was cosplaying at SP outside foodcourt 5. Not many cosplayers, which I pretty much expected due to the fact that they decided to hold it on a weekday, so it was basically me and 6 other cosplayers. So moving on, I managed to get my new handphone finally! Yay! Ok, back to tutorials now.

NERF war again?!?!

Yep, that's right folks. You heard me, I went for another NERF war today with my modified Longshot(refer to my previous post for a picture). Today's war was at a park near Bedok Bus Interchange. We had a smaller group today and some new faces turned up. After a few minutes of tweaking and loading of darts, everybody was raring to go. We divided into 2 teams and the 1st game we played was called 'Attackers/Defenders'. Basically, the defenders had to defend a pavilion in the park and the Attackers had to try reach the pavilion. After the game, we switched roles and we played for another 4-5 games. Next was Team Deathmatch, it got really intense as my team was placed at the bottom of the hill which was disadvantageous to us. Finally, the last few matches were VIP escort, which was essentially escorting the VIP to the safe house. NERF is really fun.

Activities from the past few days!

Well, it has been a pretty busy few days with classes and all. I learned that buying from the Popular at foodcourt 5 are for people who just either damn brave, or just plain stupid. Also found out that some people in my class still play Maplestory. Seriously, what the..... Anyway, I tried installing AutoCAD(some design software), but to no avail. I will be trying again later. I still have no idea what colour scheme I should go for with my Longshot. If you do have a serious suggestion, please feel free to leave a tag at my tagbox. Anyways, I am beginning to warm up to my fellow classmates although I still do not understand much of the things they are saying. I also ordered my dustcoat today. Apprently, they do not stock XL, so I have to order 1st and collect later. On a happy note, I wish to announce that I have acheived my rank of Grandmaster in MouseHunt! Will be going to another NERF war this saturday. Well this will be all for now, my next post will come soon.

Poly begins...

Yeah... So poly has officially begun. Day 1 of poly involved a lecture in Electronics and a practical in Mechanics. The equipment at the Mechanics lab are really cool. The vernier calipers and micrometer screw gauge were electronic! No more reading of the scale! I also realized that my Electronics lecturer behaves like my former English teacher, Mr Thoedy. Went to the library with Billy after school to read, while waiting for Ryan. I borrowed a couple of books.Then we went to eat at foodcourt 3. Note to self, I don't like the Chicken Chop there. Day 2, woke up really, really early because my lesson started at 8. I had fun at CAD lesson, playing around with the program. However, the lesson was a long stretch at 4 hours long, so by the time class ended, I was pretty worn. Went to return some library books, I like the system to return. Very cool. Had electronics tutorial after that. Basically it was just more talking and we were released not long after that. Had lunch at foodcourt 3 again. Today, I had malay rice. Totally loved the food, it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S. Went to camp at the library reading again. Read for 2 hours before leaving. Met a couple of my classmates as I left. Went to Clementi to apply for my new ez-link card. Then, I took a bus to my mother's office to pass her my student ID. I will be getting my new phone, so I'm really excited!

The past week, which i seriously did not like alot.

Well, the past week was officially my 1st week of poly. Monday was interesting, woke up one hour earlier than I normally would during the holidays to get to school. The whole MM(Mechanical and Manufacturing) freshmen cohort were shoved into the SP auditorium for some speeches and performances. Later, we were sorted into our classes, mine being DARE/FT/1B/25. Second day was SPICE training. Went to SP to meet up with Billy and Ryan for lunch. Met up with a couple of other people as well. After SPICE training we went bowling. Surprisingly, i achieved 2 strikes in a row. Wednesday, was when i went out for modification works on my Longshot. Couldn't find a similar spring as the one they had in the Longshot, so I decided to 'think out of the box' and put a second spring in. Thursday, was SP Flag Day. It was horrible. The only good part of the day was then end when the SP people(Billy, Ryan, Keith, Ming En and Myself) met up with Eugene from Republic Polytechnic for steamboat buffet! Basically spent the whole time trying to convince Eugene to transfer to SP. The only other thing I enjoyed was watching 'Lord of War'. A very enjoyable film which i would recommend all to watch. However, do note that the movie is rated M18. Next week, I hope to better connect with my classmates.

Orientation Day 1

Today was officially my 1st day as a student of Singapore Polytechnic. My class is DARE/FT/1B/25. Well, I hoped that it would be better at poly but its seems that its no different than at Maris Stella.My class has 20 guys and 0 gals. Yeah people thats right, you heard me 0 gals. Means the boy:girl ratio is 1:0. Anyway the programme was kinda cool and it seems that my camp-mate, Zaid, is in the same class as me. At least I know someone in my new class. Backtrack to yesterday, i went to my 1st official NERF war! HELL YEAH! Played using my new Longshot CS-6, I'm going have to modify it though, the more experienced players have Longshots with 3 times my range. Going to do a complete paint job as well. My Longshot CS-6
