freak. missed ippt silver by a bit. 0.1s faster for shuttle run, 4cm more for sbj, and i’d have booked out last night. oh well. still slightly less than 4 weeks to go… probably can get silver by then.
i’m going for live shooting this week, monday to wednesday. they say it’s pretty boring at the range… i’d probably spend much of my time waiting to shoot. think i’d read life of pi during that time. borrowed it from allan the other time and never got around to reading it. haha. my shooting’s surprisingly ok, assuming the IMT (some computerised m16 simulator thingy) scores are reflective of actual range performance. i got 27 out of 31 shots, which was pretty good… 87%? i knew playing time crisis at arcades would come in useful… heh. ok. actually they don’t really help. but it’s nice to know i’m doing ok for bmt.
which i’m really tired of, actually. my morale’s been rather low recently… i think ever since i took mc that time, i’ve been thinking a lot more about how i should be at home with family rather than stuck in that stupid camp in tekong. so much so that i actually had second thoughts about studying overseas. heh. but yeah i’m probably still going. hmm.
some stupid drivers in this neighbourhood (or maybe just visitors who’re lazy to park further away) have recently decided that it’s ok to park opposite my car and jam up the road. and get the traffic police trooping over and giving tickets to ALL the vehicles involved. it’s like, i park the car outside my house (perfectly legal), the road is clear. lorries still can go by. some idiot parks on the opposite car and makes it such that only cars (not large vehicles) can drive by (with some difficulty). we both get tickets for obstruction of traffic. and this has happened twice already! well, nearly. i think my mum talked to the officer on the second occasion and only the other vehicle got the ticket. yay.
a-level results are coming out soon! normally i wouldn’t care too much (the same can’t be said for some of you blog-readers huh? nyah nyah), but i’m probably getting a day off since like >85% of my company is going off to collect their results. so. yay? hopefully!
