Busy

20 October 2012

I’m busy lately. School exam has started yesterday and lasted until 27th. On 27, I also must follow a try out on maths. The next day, on 28th, I’ve got to fly to Bandung to attend the first national training camp in informatics for a month.  Every week starting from 23 August, there was a long-distance training from them. What’s worse, my deadline on registration to NTU/NUS was also at 27 October. (well, if I return the form after I came back from Bandung, the time will be too little as there was always many things to do in school)

First week of October 2012

In the first week of October 2012, I’ve been very busy preparing for school exam, 1st National Training Camp (Pelatnas 1 TOKI 2013), the first TWoS, and also the legalisation of my documents needed to apply to universities.

The week started normally. My game for TWoS have been finished and the network testing have been done on the Saturday before that day. All I need was just bug finding. On Saturday, 6 October 2012, my school’s extracurricular club, SSEC (Sutomo 1 Science Exploration Club) held a science fair called “The Wonder of Science” a.k.a. TWoS. In this fair, like the fair before, was divided into some divisions, I got a part on computing. In computing, there was two game played, one is mine which is available at http://bit.ly/twos12A . This is a very basic implementation of binary search. The first time I solve a problem like this, I don’t even know that I used Binary-Search Algorithm. The other one was made by Charlie, it was a quiz program called “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”.

This week, our group on biology also presented for the third unit: genetic matters. Well, ours was the most time-consuming one, and so far, always become the first to present.

This week also, my documents were successfully submitted for legislation after one time rejected. They called me to take back the legalised copies on Monday.

Today, 7 October 2012, in the morning I had Physics-First Try Out. Well, I think I can do good there. At 10, I attended the class of Physics talking about Current of Electricity. Around 11.30 if I’m not mistaken, the teacher, Johan, started to talk about his experience of meeting Tsunami back in December 2004. My eyes unintendedly became red and watery. His story somewhat made us realize that sometimes money can’t buy things that are on sale: because the owner didn’t sell it any more (because the owner needed the goods for his/her survival, not for money any more)

After the class was over, I went back home and had lunch. Then my father fetched me to the other house. In the way there, we stopped at Clover Bakeshoppe to buy my birthday cake. Around 3, it started to rain. the rain was chasing cats and dogs. The electricity went out; the wind was also heavy. I played RA2:YR once, and BF2 once. In the evening, we went out to Cambridge City Square to have a dinner at The Grand Duck King. We ordered Beijing Duck, tofu, char-siew, siew-mays, siao-lung-paos. They were very nice. We went to Brastagi Supermarket and then went back to home. Luckily I’m close enough to have the opportunity to listen to some of the live stream of BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards performance. There were Taylor Swift, 1D, Fun., etc. Following the programme was the Official Chart. Well, I can’t follow them all cause I had to sleep. Bye.
