eXAm ReSuLtS oUT, 13 DeCeMbER GrADuAtiON iS oN, a LiTtLE eFForT gOeS a LoNG wAY & dA BBQ LaST SuNDaY!

WooHoo! Exam results have been released earlier by one day, as usual. And I got mine through SMS about 6pm plus. Don't know why I didn't have too much worries about it, although I know being over confident isn't a good thing. But I guess I still DID IT, thanks to the support from my wonderful parents, darling and most of all I Thank God too! Was really surprised when my honours head told me a couple of days ago that my thesis results will be release together with the examination results and I didn't believe it.... till now! Yeah, it's only a D, I couldn't ask for more with the effort I had put in. Was hoping for 1st Class Honours, but being the lazy bum me and 3 HDs, 2 Ds Image hosted by Photobucket.comfor the whole Honours term should still get me a 2nd Class Honours, Division A I hope... Oh yah thanks to all my chabohs who have been giving constant support and also Tigger who told me everything will turn out fine! Love you all heaps! *muaks* Now I can look forward to seeing Mummy and Daddy next week when they arrive in Melbourne for my 13 December Graduation! Congrats to all of us who will be graduating in this december ceremony. Those whose turn have not yet come, don't worry, study hard and it will come soon! Darling's results wasn't what he had expected and he's pretty upset about it. Guess his PC games and television will have to go next year as I really hope he can do better. Decided to make Lotus Root and Peanuts with Chicken soup today and lucky I did, so that at least eating something he likes made him feel better, even if just a little bit.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comLast Sunday, Alvin our "ex-campus" mate invited us for a BBQ he had organised for us and his friends in Clayton in a Garden Park or something, I forgot what it's called. The food was not too bad, thanks to those standing at the BBQ Pit taking their time to cook the food for us. ;) But he missed out on the sting ray, prawns and other stuff he had promised! Ah well, we still had heaps to eat anyway and were really stuffed. There was a playground nearby and we "BIG" kids couldn't help but take a dip at the swings and slides. Erm, darling's butt was a tad too big and couldn't fit in. (o.o) Then we each had a go at something which darling said is called "Flying Fox", where you can see a shot of me there! OMG yes, we were playing amongst the little kiddies! Then as usual we must take more photos and so there's one on the right and yes, Joyce's eyes are closed. Too lazy to edit, sorry ah...

Image hosted by Photobucket.comWe also found out that Carine couldn't get a job she wanted to stay on here, so she's returning to SG. What a pity, a girl who knows how to appreciate the life in Melbourne yet not given the chance. I reckon if she had spent more time studyin here, she could apply for PR like us.. Wish her all the best anyway, back in SG. :) Then there were people walking their "SO CUTE" doggies where I couldn't help but take a shot with one of them. Yeah he's lookin at the food! Later on came this cute little girl who dugged out her toy bag and asked us to play with her! She's really pretty. Then you can see darling climbing down the "Firemen's" pole where he tried very hard to convince Len to give it a go as well, but she wouldn't.

Well, the great big hurdle's finally passed now, but somehow there still isn't a total sense of relief, I don't know why. Oh well, at the moment, we shall all enjoy ourselves to the fullest first and worry about other things later!

dArLiN woKE mE uP fRoM mY DrEAm, hELLo tO dEaR tiGGeR, mORe sHoPpiN & yET mOrE tHiNGs tO pOnDeR...

I had a sweet dream going on this morning and darling had to push over and wake me up. -> I dreamt that I was pregnant and then there were all sorts of hoo ha like getting baby stuff and they were OH SO CUTE! Boy I think of some of my girlfriends sometimes who already have their sons or daughters and they start calling me auntie. Though it seems like life is over for them with a baby and stuff, I reckon everyone has to grow up one day and sooner or later, clubbing and having late night with friends would get boring as well. It's not scary, it's a phase in life everyone has to go through and not live in denial behaving like a child even though they are in their mid-twenties. Anyway, I woke up gaving a stare at darling telling him, "Thanks ah, wake me up! At least let me see how cute my baby is when he/she is born then wake me up lah!"Image hosted by
Oh well, lets forget about that and let me reply to the messages posted by my dear tigger: HI GIRL!!! It's been a long time since I heard from you man, guess you must be busy with work as usual! Must have seen my message from friendster then decide to pop over to my blog? Yeah, hate the uni right? Always making things difficult for people and never seem to help students with their stuff. I reckon it's time to complain to ISA!? Anyway, nice studio shot with your friends, don't forget to leave time for me when longy and I return to SG ah, will SMS you first thing when I get back!
Meet Tigger, the best friend of Pooh, she taught me the true meaning of friendship! She and "Kitty" (Evon) made me realised that there are still honourable, fun-loving and considerate SG girls out there! Miss the pot-lucks, the make-up session during balls, the chit-chatting till the wee hours, the waking up and dragging each other to church on Sunday mornings, the shopping trips, the afternoon tea at IMIS etc..
You take care too dear girl and really hope to see ya soon!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comAnd with that, today was yet another shopping, "burnt more holes in your pocket" day. Darling had to drive over to the mechanics to pay up the car service money and so he dropped us at Brandon Park, The Centro shopping centre. It was just like any other shopping centres in Melbourne with a supermarket, an anchor tenant and other small shops. We missed KMART from traralgon and thought it would be good to walk in the one here. There were a couple of other smaller clothes shop, but nowdays when I buy clothes, I make sure I really like it before I buy, else they will land up for sale in ebay again anyway! Then we saw some CUTE puppies at the pet shop and darling as usual again was going on like, "Orh, can we bring him home pleaseee?" **Frown from mel** Anyway, got a cheapo but pretty nice watch from KMART, to last for the time being. Been looking to get a new watch for a long time! And I like Fossil watches, but they are much cheaper in SG and it's so expensive here.. So I'll wait and pester darling to get me one back in SG *Sly Grin* ;)

Darling and I just got back from dinner at Rock Kung and yes it's been some time since it's just the two of us thingy. We had our usual Char Siew, then we added an Oyster sauce bak choy and Salted Fish with Bean Curd and Chicken Hot Pot. At first we were not happy, not happy that we are the ones always giving and the others always taking. No happy when we do everything we always spare a thought for others, but yet they do not do the same sometimes. But then darling told me, "Oh well, at least you have me and I have you!" I reckon people in this world belong to either one of the categories; those who give and those who take. I won't deny in the past I've been taking alot as well, but ever since darling came, he taught me how to give as well. I guess it's just the two of us like two peas in a pod who, no matter how much we say like, "We are not going to care anymore!" We just can't keep to it, maybe cause we are just too soft-hearted...

sT. KiLdA bEAcH sUN-tAnNinG, sOmE PrOBLeMs nEvER eNd, dArLinG cAN cOoK & sHoPpiN iS GoOd cOnSoLaTiOn!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHaven't found the time and mood to update my blog till today. The pass two or three days didn't go by smoothly what with my thesis stuff and assignment markings and maybe today's shopping was a little consolation but until I get an answer from my Honours head and supervisor, it's gonna be a heart-wrenching wait till next week. Anyway, we silly girls decided to make a last minute decision and go sun tanning on Tuesday. Erm, yeah it was not a really good day for lying on the sand or playing around in the water because temperature forecasts for that day was windy and cloudy. But we were still sturbbon arses who wanted to make the trip before darling sent his car for servicing that day. So we're sure there's gonna be a next time when the weather forecast is sunny! :)

Image hosted by Photobucket.comSweet darling made dinner for me on Wednesday night, it was pasta with chicken and his self-made cheese mushroom. It was really yummy.. Glad he's always there for me, to calm me down for everything, to be the level-headed other half. I really screamed on Tuesday night when I saw the email from my supervisor asking me to edit the thesis and return to Gippsland to reprint it again! I was really firmed and decided I am not making another trip back Gippsland but will edit the thesis through email, and luckily my computer systems officer was really kind to help me with the reprinting and binding. Then, my Honours head came with yet another shocking news, that is my thesis might not be marked in time for my graduation. My mum called him up to have a chat with him and he said his last resort will be to call up the examiners and try and speed up on the marking, but all's not confirmed. And I might have to change my graduation to next year, March in Gippy. Please people, never ever trust that the uni will get things done for you, the different depts. do not liaise with one another at all and everything depends entirely on ourselves! Still praying and keeping my fingers crossed that all will be fine. Lucky again in the meantime, I am still working for the uni and earning my own keep...

Image hosted by Photobucket.comSo back to more happy stuff and shopping is definitely one of them. I got this Clinique Gift Set, "All about eyes" for myself a couple of weeks ago cause I was running out of eye cream. Anyway I guess certain brands suit only certain people. In the past I used Clinique Anti-Blemish range and it was really good for me, clearer skin with hardly any pimples. Now I've got these pimples that are here since the last "that time of the month" and I am using Biotherm now. Guess we all could never do without a pimple cream and so I had to get the Clinique Anti-Blemish Spot cream today, AUD$32, expensive but worth it! So we escaped the usual schedule of going to the gym today and went down Melbourne central shopping instead. The interesting part is that SeXy-H is not back yet, so we took a bus from Clayton campus to Glen Waverly and then took the train down. It took us like 1.5 hours just to get to the city compared to the usual 20 minutes by car from the same place.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comIt was then I realised how spoilt we are since darling came into our lives, or much more into my life. But it was all good anyway, consider that a form of exercise since we missed gym today. Spent a total of about AUD$150 odd bucks including the items on the right and some earrings from Diva and a "Breast Cancer Support" bangle, in aid of the support for breast cancer research in which my mum is also an active supporter back home. Stuff bought included Sports Girl and from Myers. Lucky us too, in the evening, the mechanic called and informed darling that we could pick SeXy-H up! We had a pretty interesting tram ride on our way to pick up the car as the driver was a learner and the instructor was a pretty charming old man with deep "all-english" voice. We had fun hearing how he directed the learner tram driver how to move about the tracks when a tram broke down. So now we are back home, Joewiz and her brother is at their auntie's place, but we've got something planned for tonight: Monopoly and drinking session as we got a couple of cartons of Jim Bean and SmirnOff. So people who are bankrupt and can't pay rent will have to drink! Yeah, pretty lame but aw, it's the simple pleasures of life when you are really bored.. Looking forward to BBQ on Sunday!

dRiViN bAcK GippY, i aBsOLuTeLy HaTE mY sUpERviSoR, gREEn TeA iS GooD & A PeNnY fOR YoUr tHoUGhTs...

Just got home from my uncle's place after dinner and a "PR Talk" session the girls had with my uncle. Len, joewiz and I were totally exhausted after the drive back from Gippsland and the girls waiting for me again. "Thanks again gals", especially looloo who accompanied me on the drive.. *hugz....hugz....*
Yes, you might wonder why, that bloody supervisor of mine who never ever takes in what I say or ask has emailed me in the morning to collect the thesis from him and do some amendments. I was so freakin pissed when I told him so long ago I am handing it in on 18 Nov, and am staying at Clayton not in Gippsland! He seems to absorb only what he wants to hear sometimes. I have been emailing him the thesis asking him to check throughly for the last few weeks, yet he never really answers the questions I ask. Oh well, at least we managed to exchange for a workable TV. Getting hooked on Green Tea lately, especially the one I got from Dandenong that day. Check out the infuser and the tea leaves box. The Japanese Morning Dew green tea smells so great, something of a mixture of rosewood + potpurri and it taste nice also, but it needs sugar like Joyce says, "to bring out the fragrance..."

The big rejoice and consolation is that darling's back! It feels so good to see him again and hug his teddy bear frame! And also we enjoyed the "arguments" he and joyce have usually everyday due to their different perceptions of life! Haha, and it's always like a short comedy episode, which is like entertainment for us, I reckon looloo laughed too much and tire herself more, that's why she went to sleep early too... haha..

*Anyway, just a penny for your thought* Have you ever feel sometimes that when you do something, you always think of your close friends and include them no matter what? But somehow, sometimes they choose paths they think is best for them (maybe it is?), hardly sparing a thought for you? Oh well, sometimes there are people in life you want to "keep", but somehow they are never within your reach although it seems they are so near. I remember my cousin and I were the bestest friends during our childhood, then we drifted apart during secondary school, so when I asked her to write in my autograph book that time, she left a comment which instilled a deep impression on me to this day; but we are still the closest of all cousins and make an effort to contact each other every now and then, and we meet up once a year. The comment was, "It's the place and convenience..." how true... whatever happened to "It's the people?"...

tOtAL wOrKoUT DaY + ViSiT tO sPa aFtER gYm, iNtERnET sUcKs hErE & aWaiTiNg dArLiN'S rEtURn..

Like Joewiz mentioning in her blog, we come home everyday after gym and sit our arses in front of the computer and have plenty of time with nothing to do except to update our blogs. But, I HATE the Internet connection in this rented house! I reckon a dial-up works better than this stupid cable connection shared by 5 rooms! It's so bloody slow! Anyway, I got up at about 10am plus with a message from Len surprisingly at such an early time knowing that little piggy usually wakes up when half the day is gone. We should have made a bet about her changing her mind and coming home only tommorrow when she said she'd be home today. But then again, it's Len, so no one will lose the bet, haha.. But its all good as Timmy's sending her back (*winks*, yeah the yellow submarine is finally working again!) and we asked her to bring the TV and my Beach Mat back. Yah, looloo and liliz's TV doens't work here without a special cable and all we got was the black screen.

Anyway, today was a tiring but fruitful day! It's called TOTAL WORKOUT DAY! Working out and swimming! Geez, if only I were that "hard-working" back in Gippy too, then I probably would have trimmed off the extra layers earlier.. heehee.. First, I went to the gym with joewiz, a.k.a looloo and her bro came later, as usual.. ;) Did the normal 1 hour plus workout. Check out some photos of the gym. It has two levels and usually we are on the second level because that's where all the treadmills, steppers and cross trainers , plus cardio machines are. Ground level is more for guys where all the heavy weight lifting machines are. But I step down there for awhile too, to lift some weights to tone down the flabby arms, do abit of the hand lifting bars and back-toning lift-ups. Plus it's a change of environment to look out for cute guys lah.. But a pity, looloo and I haven't really seen a cute and muscular guy yet. 6 packs most of them got lah, but face... erm... heehee.. Anyway to me, my darling's still the most charming one, even with his big round stomach, so it doesn't really matter... *grinz*...

Image hosted by Photobucket.comSo the big workout day includes swimming next. The Doug Ellis pool in Clayton also has a spa/sauna/steam room and I went with Joyce only because ehem, looloo couldn't join us cause she hadn't got a new swimsuit! Can you believe it? I half-heartedly took the new FREE Bikini given by Newwoman Magazine I bought last week thinking Joyce would wear something else. But nooo! As usual that girl cannot find her swimming costume and so like TWIN sisters, we wore the same bikini and it even was the SAME colour! OmiGod, if darling was around I could picture him saying, "oh Nooo..." Haha, but it was okay, I tried finding pictures of the pool but couldn't get any except this cute shot of little kids at the pool. Picture this, it has 3 indoor heated pools, one for children, one 1 metre deep, the other varies from 1 metre to 2.1 metres deeps. We soaked in the spa for awhile, enjoying the water jets massaging our backs and then turned our stomachs there as well, (to try and disintegrate the fats) haha! Then we swam a few laps before heading off to the steam room and sauna for awhile where we heard a conversation between two uncles about going to Kuala Lumpur for a holiday from S'pore. Sats/Suns are party days for children to have birthday parties and also days where the big inflatable slide is put out on the pool! One of the sports people approached us asking if we would like to try and we were like sure! why not? Erm, but the slide was a tad too slippery for Joyce and she couldn't make her way up. As for me, once was enough lah, very embarrasing to go up second time when you have kids making their way round you..

Missing darling heaps again as usual.. Just got a call from him when I was driving back from Coles with looloo and Joyce, he just finished dinner and Hemant they all wanted to go to the beach for a swim.. So we are back home again now and tonight will be another night of reading newspapers and magazine on the table in the living room and laughing at silly things we come across and gossiping about stuff... Reckon I will sleep pretty early tonight, really exhausted and the sooner I sleep, the faster tommorrow comes and I can see darling again! :)

AnD sO bE iT: AMEN..

Going to Mass makes a person calm down alot. I just came back from Sunset Mass (Vigil) at the St. Peter's in Clayton. Sunday's choir singing is much more lively and jovial as compared to Saturday night, but it was all good; for the purpose of worshiping God and Jesus anyway. My close friends must be thinking "It's not MeL" when they see the next few paragraph of words I'm going to write. I don't usually edit my blog to make people feel better. But I guess being closer to God and darling's ever-loving patience helps alot. So,

TO STRANGER & ANONYMOUS: I know how it feels to have your boyfriend or best friend being criticised by someone else. As much as I dislike him, I'm sure he feels the way for me and the same goes for you all. For some reasons, our paths crossed the wrong way and neither one of us would ever want our paths to be crossed again. I have edited the post on him. People come and go in our lives, so I'd appreciate if you / you all just GO and keep your comments to yourself in future and STOP stalking my blog. Thank you.


i DoN'T nEED bUsY-bODiEs, dAndEnOnG tRiP, hEctiC tHeSiS -hAnDiN uP dAY & MiSsiN tuBBs + LeN tOo LaH..

Before I get on to the Dandenong updates, let's just say the change in blog design reflects my current mood. I have been wanting to change it for some time and finally after the hurdle was handed in yesterday, I thought why not. Anyway, the nasty comments still lingered in my head last night and I felt better only after darling said, "Don't let those ignorant people upset you, they don't know what happens between close doors." We were lying on the bed talking and I asked, "Haha, so what happens behind closed doors?" And he replied with a grin, "You take good care of me, love you so much.." I don't see being direct and bold as any problem, rather than fake people wearing a mask round you all time. I'm not a sweet person and friends who know me well know I've got that temper of mine. It's either you love me or you hate me, so I don't need busy-bodies telling me what I should do. [EDITED]

Image hosted by Photobucket.comNow, lets get back to better things. Just sent darling to the train station at Caulfield this morning, it's just along the Princes Hwy and takes only about 10-15 minutes. Thought it would be nice to have a quite drive back home alone after dropping darling off, but Nooo, it was raining on and off with the drizzles and pouring every now and then. So I got home and didn't feel like jumping back to bed and thought might as well do something with my blog. Well, so these were some of the stuff we took up at the Dandenong Ranges, the Miss Marples Tea Room. I think I've got the description and website in a previous post a few months back. Yess, the scones are absolutely awesome, but a couple of them is enough to make you feel bloated. Then there's the Vicar's Folly ice-cream as they called it, shown on the left shared by darling, Joewiz and Joyce. The Jam and cream for the scones were really good as well and a small bottle only costs around $6. The place has an old english feeling to it and it's really a nice place to bring your parents for tea and scones!! Oh yah, the place closes at 4.30pm everyday and is easily accessible by car only though. Lotsa tourist busses go up there too..

Image hosted by
After that, we headed to the nearby shops and shown there is a pretty interesting shop that sells anything to do with tea. They have lotsa different unique and lovely tea pots, even miniature ones. Look at the inquisitive people on the right, haha.. Then darling stopped at the picnic area for us to go down and take a walk and yah we had nothing better to do so we took some silly photos instead. Yes as you can see, the prettiest one must always stand in front right? :D She blocked my hand too! Yesterday was spent at uni trying to finish up the last of my thesis , printing and binding it. Thanks to Len, Joyce for their patience waiting and especially darling for driving me back all the way Gippsland and helping me with the printing and stuff. Gave Tina, Shelley and Simon a farewell gift for the help rendered. Plus Adrien, the lecturer I'm helping to mark assignments for gave me a box of chocolates for helping him with the extra assignments.

Just came back from the gym awhile ago with Joewiz, Chun Yao and Joyce. We also popped by to check out the swimming pool, it wasn't too bad and two kids were having birthday parties there. Missing darling heaps already, lucky he messages/calls me every few hours. Yah I know lah, it's only two days, can't stand us right? So mushy, have to admit though, we argue all the time, yet he's still the sweetest thing, cause he's my one and only "tubbie". Miss ya too Len although you're at Tims, wonder if you know about the" happenins" here. Okie, going off now to shower and get ready for Sunset Mass at 7pm...

aNNoYiNG mEsSaGeS fRoM uNwELcOmED pEoPLe & mOrE uPdAtEs sOoN..

Oh my, it's been some time since there's so much "heat" in my blog.. Just haven't checked for a couple of days when Joyce told me about some comments left by AGAIN some COWARDLY people who want to criticise me yet do not have the balls to leave their name. Darling and I were discussing we know who they are anyway.. Oh well, for darling's sake, I promise him not to retaliate, so if YOU DO NOT LIKE WHAT YOU SEE ON MY BLOG, PLEASE GET THE FXXK OUTTA HERE! You know who you are and you are not welcome to write any comments on my blog!!

Man, how many times do I have to say if ya don't like me, tell me straight in the face and I DARE U TOO! Do not bitch with your friends behind thin walls calling others a pretencious bitch when you yourself are one! How many times have hypocritical people been offered a ride in darling's car to somewhere and do they appreciate?! HELL NO! Even poor darling, who's the nicest person in the world gets backstabbed too, so I'm not surprised about the response on my "heated argument" in the previous post. Anyway, I have deleted UNWANTED comments from UNWELCOMED people. I'm glad I have darling who's always there for me..

Enough of UNHAPPY STUFF from BITCHES and BUMS (includes "stranger" and "anonymous", COWARDS who didn't dare acknowledge themselves!), darling brought us to Dandenong again a couple of days ago. And we four girls really enjoyed the food at Miss Marples and we were really so "bo-liao", that we took some really silly pictures... Darling's going for a board member's training camp tommorrow, going to miss him heaps for the next two days.. :(

dA mOVE tO cLaYtoN, a HeAtED rOw aNd iMa wAiTiN tO hAnD iN mY tHeSiS!

Yess! Hypothetically I have finished my thesis! But officially, I haven't handed it up yet, it's due this Friday on the 18th of Nov and the draft is ready for my supervisor to vet through and hopefully he doesn't make much changes. I'm really sick of looking at it already! 65 long pages with 17,000 over words, I wonder how I got there too... Oh well, for now some updates for the time away:

Image hosted by Photobucket.comOkay I know, this event has passed some time ago already, but anyway it's the MUGSU Awards Night where Student Union awards student volunteers. Congrats to Sheali who won for ISA. The date's written on the top right hand corner. Then we went bowling with Kal just a few days before he went back to SG. Not bad after not playing for so long, and he's pretty good at it as well. And now I'm blogging from our rented house in Clayton. We just roamed the whole of Monash Clayton campus today and initially we almost got lost, but it's okay after awhile. We found the gym and swimming pool and Joewiz and I are intending to go for regular workouts starting from tommorrow. Man, students at Clayton campus are spoilt, they have every facility you can imagine under one roof, yes you name it, they've got it! From banks, post office, restaurants, cinemas, hairdresser and more! And we are so jealous! Yeah, but such big campus doesn't rent out bicycles! We walked from our place to uni today, thinking like Gippsland Student Union they would rent bicycles, but darn, I reckon the Sport Centre people must be thinking what "koo-koo" people we are and which village did we come out from, fancy asking for bicycle rental!

Image hosted by Anyway, the move to the new house didn't come as smooth. On the last day(11 Nov) before we left Gippy, I swear I almost wanted to punch someone! That fella threw away Len and I's salmon and prawns worth well over AUD$15! I have been boiling mad for a long time and putting up with him long enough and the last day I had to snap! If ya wanna know he is, make a guess, a 26 yr old uncle staying in south 6. He's IMPOLITE & UNFRIENDLY(TO US)! We have a shoutoutz that day with him saying he delibrately didn't ask us before he threw it away because of the note we left in the fridge. We had cleaned the fridge and just left a note sayin we had done the cleaning, he got a problem with that and threw our stuff away in the large garbage bin to get back at us! I mean, how petty for a man, and you thought only women did that! But man it felt so good being able to scream, "FXXK U", before I left the house. [EDITED]

Image hosted by So as you can see from above, finishing exams and having nothing to do isn't a very good thing. And staying in the city area really burns more holes in your pockets faster! At Chadstone shopping that day, I just bought a Clinique Gift set with make-up bag, eye cream, eye shadow and mascara and lip gloss and a Clinique Face powder. The next day at David Jones, I got another make-up brush set and a tote bad! All in all plus rental paid, I think we spent almost AUD$1000 in like 2-3 days! And while I had my last two days marking assignments and finishing up my thesis, poor darling, Len, Joyce and Joewiz were bored shitless and entertaining themselves with board games, poker cards and singing to themselves! Anyway, love the Catholic church nearby here, has a warmth feeling to it as well and darling and Len were nice enough to keep me company on Sunday morning. It was the same one Denise and I went last year when she stayed near Clayton campus as well. Miss u gal! :( Check out the house on top. All that's left now is the impending wait where I can finally hand up my thesis on friday successfully and I'm considered totally FREE!
