I decided to take a break from all the studying for CIMA and procrastinating. In fact, I lost my train of thought somewhere down the line. But I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to end with “I’m blogging!” So, here I am…
Hmmm… Did I tell you the week just ended was so not good for me? Well, I got my CIMA strategic level exam results and I failed all 3 subjects! The good thing is my parents didn’t decide to bury me alive and dance on my grave! Anyway, it was a HUGE wake up call. And I hope to do better next time! So keep your fingers crossed to hear me venting around May!
Honestly, much to my own dismay, even though I started to write this, today I have nothing much to blog about! Life is uneventful right now and I know, ‘Shame on me’! So I’ll just share some photos with you, of the five kinds of English books I have at home. (Apart from my most cherished books!)
#01 – My father’s books. Almost all of them are second-hand!
#02 – Books my mother bought for me when I was small, which I never read, because I used to hate English back then! (For me, Elocution classes meant torture! So I merrily doodled around till I turned 11! That year my father started to read a Secret Seven book for me but never completed it, compelling me to learn English to know how the story ends. Before that I could swear to god, I don’t think I knew the alphabet even!)
#03 – Books I bought by myself, but never bothered to read because I bought them only to show-off!
#04 – Books I abandoned reading half way through.
(Drum roll please!)
#05 – Books I’ve hidden on the side of my wardrobe to be read when I run out-of-pocket money to buy books! (I know, I’m still cool! Just like a squirrel who stores food for Winter!)
Does anyone out there also have the 5th kind of books or am I the only crazy person who needs to completely shut down and pull back into my ninja turtle shell?
Let me know, please!
Cos if you are also my kind, I want to get back to you and say,
