30th Jan 2008

What a day…this morning I woke up on time, but I still got out a bit late, so I practically ran to class. But when I got there there were only 2 people in the lecture hall. Weird. The lecturer wasn’t there but I thought that’s ok, he tends to come a bit late anyway. So we sit around and soon 1 or 2 more students come. And no one else. Then we get a text saying no class!

Then in the evening I had to wait for my laptop to save and hibernate so by the time I got out of my room I only had 5 minutes to make it to class on time so this time I really ran. Made it in 7 minutes, but again there were only 2 people there. This time 9/15 people showed up, but when we called our facilitatpr, she said there was no class that day. Then we rechecked our date listings and lo and behold – today was not one of the days that we had class….great. at least I got a ride back, since it started pouring right then. So tired..

Tired….but happy.

Today started bad. I woke up late, at 8.10, and my class was at 8.30. sure, enough time to ruch and get ready and make it to class just late if I ran all the way. But I couldn’t run so I just didn’t go. :/ then I also skipped my tilawah class coz I was so sleepy and lazy and more importantly I had a quiz to try and study for. Then my quiz was…okay, easier than I expected but I still don’t think I got the answers. And on the forst page it said MID SEMESTER EXAMINATION. 0.0 10% of the total final grade. Huhu..

Then at night I went to the al-aqsa interculrutal competition. The two teams that qualified for the finals were 2 sets of my friends – one is the old timers ilham ayesha and hannat and the other is nw friends – Sumeyra, khushnood and olla. Granted, I’ve known olla for ages but still.

Ilhams team won by one question, but it was great. The guys finals sucked, their questions were soooo easy! The girls one was way way way tougher, goes to show who they think has more intelligence eh? Just finished summarizing one chapter bt its still too long and its already 12-something but I still have to shower and stuff…huhhh

Today I had my preliminary crit #1. so I had to make up a concept for my house design, and I came up with “harnessing the wind”. Nothing they can comment on that unlike if I said its Bali or colonial or contemporary. Then they would be like, what is bali? How is your house colonial? This is not contemporary, you don’t understand your own concept! Well anyway, the design of my house was done in such a way that it was supposed to create a pressure differential between the two sides of the house so that cross ventilation would be possible, in all directions not only from front to back. This concept is actually like that of a plane’s wings with uplift created by pressure differences. Something like that. But the lecturers didn’t really get it and kept asking me why the house was shaped like it was, with so-and-so angles. Anyways, for some reason whenever I present the lecturers have not much to say. Good in a way, but you still need feedback laa. Thing is, I don’t give them things to criticize freely (like some lecturers love doing, its really undue and harsh commentating!), I do things with a purpose and guard what I say. I wouldn’t make a random statement without being able to back it up. Sometimes other students say things they themselves aren’t sure of and then they are exposing themselves to a vicious rapid fire of questions that put them in the spot. Dunno how to really explain it, but basically sometimes the students that get hammered, it’s really partly their fault for saying certain things that are like an open invitation for criticism.

February is gonna be mad, so many assignments due, midterms looming…then just when you think you’ve been given a brief respite March is upon you and that means finals and many many many sleepless nights either studying, working on projects or both!!
