Joan is bad with money

I'm sure many of you would agree with me...Lol. I don't plan for my savings, heck i dont even have a saving! If not for PTPTN loan, i wouldnt have survived til now.

Really, i mean my monthly allowance is RM300 for everything which includes petrol, toll, lunch, breakfast, university's items and outings. The first two alone already eats up all my money. I feed my car more than i feed myself.

I cannot imagine surviving without ptptn's money. Remember this post? That was my worst time ever. I practically had zero life then. Weekdays, i had classes in the morning to afternoon, after class work for Uni and certain days after that, teach my juniors. On average, i was in uni from 7am - 7pm. On weekends, work part time as promoters from 10am - 10pm. That was the very worst ever. Thank goodness for ptptn! Oh, i'm ranting again..lol..

I'm not a money person, i mean if you were to give me RM100 and ask me to do something good with it, i probably would have spend it without knowing what i did with the money. Lol.

I think it's in every Librans. Really, not lying. We're born with it, it's a package!
Librans are bad with money

*note: i'm not the person asking this question in forum! lol*

Chocolate craving...

I suddenly craved for chocolate and carbs just now at 11pm. Perfect quick fix - Chocolate cake!

So i googled and found a great recipe for a super duper quick fix.

5 minutes chocolate cake in a mug! Made it in 2 minutes, microwaved for 3 minutes. Now, i'm enjoying it. I don't even have to worry about washing up later, just need to wash a mug and a spoon! How great is that...

Sorry, i didnt take any pics..was too eager to eat it! Mine turn out to be a bit rubbery, i think i baked it too long. Depending on your microwave watts, time varies. I'm not sure how many watts my microwave is but i did it in 3 minutes.. I think i'll try 2 mins and 30 secs next time. But it still taste nice, i added an extra spoon of cocoa powder so it's more chocolaty.

You can get the recipe here.

Counting my blessings

I'm blessed. Really, i am. I've decided to count my blessings everyday to remind myself how lucky i am. And to avoid whining too much. To start off today,

I am blessed because i have great friends who genuinely care for me. You know who you are :) Despite me being whiny and complaining too much at times, you guys are still there to listen to me. Thanks a million for that! *hugs*

Joan is a happy girl! :D

Lab wasn't all that bad. I'm getting used it it already. And i think i'm beginning to like it :D

Now, that's not the good news. The good news is I've lost 2 KGs! Double weeeeee~~
All thanks to daily jogging for 30 minutes...hehe

On another note, i think i have low EQ. My friends say i think too much and over-analyse the situation which i think is true. I over think things, things that don't exist yet or is not real yet. Do i think too much?

Lab Day 1: Freaking tired

First day at lab is so taxing.

Woke up at 6am, attended class till 12.30pm.
Started lab at 1pm, finished at 6pm. Went to gym for one and half hour. Went home, stuck in jam and finally reach home at 9pm.

My daily routine is gonna be like this everyday for 3 months, except on Thursday and weekends, which are allocated for my thesis writing.

Just day 1 and i'm already hating it. How can i survive 3 months?

I attended first day of class!


This is worth mentioning since i skipped most of my first week of new semester. But i attended today's class and i was the second earliest in class! Woohoo! Hehe... I figured it's my last semester already, so i better attend first day of class for once.

Went to see my supervisor today and she got promoted! Good news for her, bad news for me. Cos that means she has less time to care about my thesis already. I requested her to set a dateline for us to hand in every chapters and she was a bit surprised. She said "Most students want the other way round, which is more flexible for them to arrange their time. You guys are weird". Lol. Without a duedate, i'll take my own sweet time and procrastinate, i need something to push me. I've been lacking motivation since the previous few sems. Dunno what's up with me already.

Happy New Year!

Goodbye to an emotional 2009. Hello 2010! :D

This year's celebration was somewhat down to earth and peaceful, just the way i liked it. Instead of the usual party scene in public places, i went over to a friend's house for BBQ. It was nice atmosphere with a nice gang of retards people =P

The Retard Gang :P

As usual, no new year resolution for me this year. Just hope for good health for my family, a job that i'm passionate about, and a smooth sailing journey in my studies.

Happy New Year people!
