The PhD I've been contacting for nearly 1 year dumped me. Reason's simple. My research blueprint isn't in tune with hers. I don't feel bad coz I love n welcome challenges. Adversity helps me know n grow. But wut depresses me most is the time n money wasted. Such is life. U don't get positive answer to each of your prayer. But for me, it could be a bless-in-disguise. It's not my worst experience anyway.

What's the point of wasting time on this book now? Gonna return it this afternoon n borrow one concerning Feng Shui. haha, purely Chinese legacy but author is from the States. I read part of it this morning n I told the librarian to keep it for me.

Goodbye, American Studies!




Hello, Intercultural Communication.



Now I'm contacting another PhD in Intercultural Communication. She told me to hand in a resume last night. Again, 3 hrs were wasted. Called my former Prof in Xi'an for some ideas. Happily he still remembers me.

Prof Chen and us!


Not sure of the result. But I don't care lah! If she doesn't want me. Just go ass-kiss another. I don't mind if they make me study linguistics, African American literature or American West. Yours truly is pretty resilient. Plus, I never fail to turn an unpleasant task into a blissful one.

Arggggggggghhhhhhhhh! I do miss my teachers n classmates in Xi'an, to be frank! Teachers here are enormously demanding n pedantic, students lazy n selfish. I'm fed up with it.

I could go home now. No more class after this morning's literature. But I have to stay here to finish all my homework before weekend. Many other books to read @ weekends.

BTW, the literature teacher is the only teacher I like in this school coz he never pressures us in class. I study his handouts not because I have to but I want to. Gotta be watchful when we choose next semester's courses! But I was told teachers here are basically the same! Seriously, if I don't get free tuitions n monthly subsidy, I'll drop out NOW n hunt for a job! The more I learn, the longer I'm surrounded by them, the more frustrated I get.

I talked to one of my former classmates from college yesterday. She couldn't believe the most industrious student in their eyes would change so dramatically just in 2 months.

--- How u feel about ur current life? Fun? Envious u lah, u could still stay in uni.
--- Bored! I miss u guys coz ppl here r fucking self-centered. I don't work that hard now. Useless!
--- What? Useless??? U could die for study!
--- That's no longer the story! I really hate school now.
--- Joyce, u did work very hard back then.
--- Yah, coz 4 yrs ago my aim was to pass the god-damn Gradschool Admission Exams. Now all I need is 60. I wanna learn something else. Something useful, man! I gotta find a job in 3 yrs! U don't expect me to talk about Shakespeare with them, do u?
--- Yah, wut we learn in school is useless in our work.
--- So why bother? I gotta learn more from u guys!

Gonna bus back tomorrow after lunch. Plan for weekend: some novel, some "useful" books, maybe some films, n check my new condo.
