5th week and counting.
Note: outdated post. XD Not going to put what I’ve written to waste so..
Seems like it was just yesterday we had our orientation. XD
It’s my fifth week in Swinburne already. Assignments and tests are already heading our way. Thank goodness our Oral Comm. assessment is long over, and Eng. Math test are already behind us! XD
Oral Comm. Assessment one. — group discussion. ah soon’s group. XD
Lectures are from 8am to 5pm on average. Any free time between them we’ll spend either at the library, the fifth floor open lab, cafeteria or at Chillipepers.
off-peak hours @ Chillipepers. when it’s peak time, the crowd could fill this frame. XD
So that’s pretty much life for the past four weeks. And when I mention ‘we’ I mean my gang of buddies, wang soon aka Ah soon, Siat Wei aka ah siat, ah piaw and me. Crazy dudes, them. So crazy, four of us are potentially notorious for talking during lectures. XD Oh okay, I probably shouldn’t be proud of that. But who cares, we have fun. =P
Of course, when it comes to work and assignments, we’ll be doing them in the library.
Lecturers are okay. Most of them at least. We have physics lecturers with impressive career profiles, an oral comm. lecturer with an impeccable command of English, an Engineering Math. lecturer with a weird English accent but knows his stuff, a former high school principal for the Reading for Academic Purposes subject, and uh, a Finite Math. lecturer who’s on sick leave for the rest of the semester after falling down the stairs. Ouch. Swinburne needs more lifts! XD
The Oral Comm. group discussion assessment we had on the 3rd week was pretty okay. At least that’s what we thought. Results aren’t out yet so..fingers are still crossed. XD Our topic was about mixed marriages, its benefits and disadvantages. Not really tough actually, but the catch was this, our groups are determined by drawing lots. So, I ended up with Melanie, Wei Ching, Siti and myself. Three gals and me. Gawd.
Anyway, that’s over so uh, forget it. XD
Oh well, let the pictures speak, shall we? =)
A typical Physics A lecture at the auditorium
..with our beloved lecturer professor Justo Diaz from the NZ. XD
..typical Physics tutorial class with Adriana Lai.
..typical Physics lab session. Check out the equipment. XD
..typical engineering math tutorial class with our cute teacher. Ms Chong. =P
and her students..
..typical finite mathematics lecture.
..another typical reading for academic purposes class with Mr. Chan.
..a typical IT lecture with Ms.Marlene Lu.
..and a typical commute to Swinburne. Bloody traffic.
