huiting says hi

Welllllll this is the public blog, so the things written here should be more-or-less stomach-able. ;) So I guess this is where I say the mandatory line:

This blog documents the thoughts and growth process of:
A free soul roaming the world in search of some meaning to life.

Pretty sure that's not the exact way I phrased it when I had my old blog skin but WTV HAHA.

Oooooh wait I think I wrote it as "lonely soul" instead of "free soul". But hey guys I've grown out of that emoshitz phase already alright ;)

Enjoy.

人生就是要盡情地瘋 / I am a free soul.

Why do we work so hard?

Why do I work so hard?

This was the question I was asking myself yesterday, when I was deliberately and diligently completing my biology lab report even though I was already feeling weary from the day of work.

It's been quite a while since I pushed myself in this aspect. In any aspect, actually. If this happened last semester, I would probably just brush the assignments off, and resign myself to the fate that I will always be lagging behind in one course or another.

But this sem, things are different though. Where does the source of my motivation come from? A quiet acceptance of my current circumstances as the path I need to take in order to live my life well, or just merely because I see meaning in the things that I am doing? More of the latter, I think.

I am interested to see what other conclusions I will come to about my life, when I am in Europe at the end of this year. I am looking forward to that prolonged period spent in the company of myself, actually. Reading books, especially. Hopefully I will be able to find many libraries, or bookstores which sell cheap books. Hopefully I will be able to uncover more about myself too. :) How I will react in surprising/unexpected circumstances, etc. I can visualise myself sitting at the veranda of certain cafes in the afternoon, people-watching haha. I can visualise myself strolling through quiet alleys too, soaking in the morning/afternoon sun (if there is; hopefully there will be at least some sun even though it will be winter time when I'm there), and quietly enjoying the sights I see.

Things will be great ^^ Hopefully I will be able to discover my philosophical inclinations as well heh.  And come up with a research direction for RA 1 while I am at it LOL.

Man, I feel like chilling already, now that I'm home. Especially since I wouldn't really be able to see my family members for a while.

Okay guess I shall relax for the rest of today then, after attempting to confirm my exchange options.

Yay, see you around. :)

Materialism.
Yay, please welcome the new addition to my life:


So chio right :D Sorry, having a material girl moment now LOL. I like my new phone a lot hahaha. I love its sleekness, and the soft shine of its pink. And the fact that it is the latest iPhone (which was just released a few days ago) helps too, I guess. (Let me just clarify that I am usually not such a huge chaser of technology though; it just happened that the iPhone 7 128Gb cost less than the iPhone 6S 64Gb, and so it made a lot more sense for me to get the iPhone 7 anyway. Yep.) But of course I also know that this is just a very short period of material indulgence, and that whatever feelings I am experiencing with this new phone now will wear away sooner or later - or within the span of a few weeks, even. Once I get used to the phone, it's not going to seem that fabulous already. That's why it's better to spend money on experiences, like travelling, rather than on material goods haha. 

Anyway. Wew. It doesn't seem that surprising that I decided to abandon Samsung and switch over to the iPhone family. In fact it feels almost natural for me to use the iPhone, especially since I got my Macbook Pro and my iPad. The ease of using Apple's software had already impressed me, ever since I bought my Macbook haha (and oh my, that was a year ago! I can't believe that this laptop has already been with me for a year, wow). And using the iPad also helped me to get used to the lack of a back button etc. So I must say that I am an Apple fan through and through now, haha. Even though I used to comment that it is ridiculous to buy an iPhone since it is so terribly expensive (costing >$1k per phone!), somehow I think that the price will be worth it, because the operating system is smoother, and the ability to sync it with my laptop and iPad is a huge plus point too. I don't have to check my iPad/Macbook every time I want to consult my schedule now hahaha. Wew. And my reminders can be done on the go too :D Of course, all these will only be worth it if I used this iPhone for >2 years I guess. And I do hope that I will be able to do that. To take care of my phone enough to do that, too. Knowing me, though, that might be a little hard to accomplish... But I ought to have more faith in myself :x and in my appreciation of the iPhone LOL.

Alright, it's time to pack up and to go to the gym soon. I was supposed to be completing my Physiology tutorial but it required too much brainpower and concentration (since I'd have to reread the entire Reproduction I lecture notes again) and I didn't really have the mental stamina to do that (after finishing my Biochemistry II Tutorial on Lipid Metabolism).

I'll do the tutorial later then :) And hopefully finish a part of my Microbiology lab report as well! And then read a little of "When Breath Turns into Air". My English is atrocious at the moment. If I want to be able to write a good essay for Ethics, I ought to read more first before I start writing.

Tomorrow shall be the day that I focus more on Ethics then.

Alright.

See you! :)

Chill.
Now I know the reason why I wanted to come back to hall.

It's so that I can sit however way I want (be it with my legs on the table, spread unglamly on my chair, or whatever it is) HAHAHA. And also not be distracted by people or the sound of people talking.

Indeed. Sometimes this kind of environment is really the most conducive for studying. It depends on the kind of mood that you are in, haha.

Alright, time to continue mugging Ethics (our midterm's gonna happen later).

Although my brain is still kinda sluggish from Microbiology midterm this morning (which happened at 8.30am, dear lord).

See yah!
