Today is a good day. Chem was really easy, but don't want to really say anything specific yet, wait till the results come back then I'll know for sure. History kids had their paper in the morning so all the people who don't take history ~dispersed~ to the various nooks and crannies of the school. Daphne and I thought the library would be really cold and canteen too distracting so we went to study Chem at the Sec 2 study area, but Brenda Shum chased us away because the Sec 2s were having their IH paper. We weren't even making much noise. :-( Oh well. There was no where else to go so we went up to the Sec 1 level and sat on the stairs because the tables were taken up by Naasyidah, Sang Ah etc. They were having "consultation" with their teacher so I just went to ask her a question, and after that Naasyidah told me she (the teacher) was very stunned/shocked/surprised HAHAHA oops. I'm not weird. :-( Went to eat at Thai Noodle House with Daphne, Caryl, Cimin, Clare and Gaby after the Chem Paper 1. We were planning to buy Starbucks afterwards because we heard there was a 50% discount that day but it turned out to be a scam ugh.

Only lit, physics and E Math paper 1 are left! Subjects that don't really have much to study/memorize, just more of practicing. :-) Planning to go play laser tag/movie marathon on Thursday, Friday is heart dissection + cataloging 6 cupboards of scores (kill me now) and then life begins.
