PhD…where am I at???

Have been up to nothing incredibly outstanding on the research front… Managed to rephrase my research question today as well as the intermediate questions that would somehow act as vital milestones. I'm yet to complete my comparative analysis, which will not only answer the first intermediate research question but will also act as the soul of my yet-to-materialise paper. The conference paper has to be put on hold last week. My cousin was here and we had a blast!!

Hmm God speed some inspiration!!!!!! I need some motivation and inspiration!!! I hope to come up with some substance for the paper. I've got the framework. I just need the drive… at the moment… hmmm too comfortable for my own goodddd…. Ok I promise .. next week… I ll get it done!!! If not I wont be expecting any gifts from Santa this year!! Tsk :(


HMMM… Interesting

Writing about Boredom strikes at 2 from [TBA]

Hmmm 1 wrong from the Beginner's level and 4 from the Expert's.. :P

My Score: ADVANCED

You scored:

92% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 66% Expert!

"You have an extremely good understanding of beginner, intermediate, and advanced level commonly confused English words, getting at least 75% of each of these three levels' questions correct. This is an exceptional score. Remember, these are commonly confused English words, which means most people don't use them properly. You got an extremely respectable score."

Compared to guys in the same age group , the results are as follows:

You scored higher than 25% on Beginner
You scored higher than 40% on Intermediate
You scored higher than 70% on Advanced
You scored higher than 13% on Expert

Where I went wrong???

1. The "You and I" and "You and me".. ive just realised my mistake as I didnt bother to look at the sentence properly.

>>You and I should go to the city. (I should go to the city)

>>He is going to the city with you and me. (He is going to the city with me)

2. Hung or Hanged

>>hanged – v. past tense of hang; to suspend by the neck until dead
>>hung – v. past tense of hang; to fasten from above with no support from below
Hence, Hanged is used when referring to death by hanging. Hung is used in all other senses of the word. (hmm never used Hanged before, but I know it was correct but I thought that hung is acceptable as well..haha)

3. A while, Awhile or For awhile

Because the word awhile is an adverb, it cannot be used in a prepositional phrase. "for awhile" would be incorrect. Since while is a noun, it can be used with or without the preposition for. Therefore, all three are correct. (Changed this one back from All to For awhile.. still it was confusing but now I know… cool)

4. Whomever or Whoever

Whom is always used when it is the object of a preposition. Who is used as a suject and when a pronoun such as I or he could replace who. Here is an easy little trick to differentiate between who and whom: Replace the questionable word with he or him. If you would replace it with he, use who. If you would replace it with him, use whom

5. Thought that Phenomena and Phenomenon are both singular.

>>phenomena – n. plural of phenomenon
>>phenomenon – n. an occurrence, circumstance, or fact that is perceptible by the senses

Mariah.. you go gerr!!!

Title:
Rating:
4 out of 5 stars

Being a fan of the ever so clueless Mariah since her first ever album, I'm utterly happy that she makes it back to the top of her game. Being the best selling female artist in 2005 proves that in what ever situations you're in, you just have to believe that God will bring you through. She did it and it is very inspirational.

This new edition of the multi-platinum album includes 4 new unreleased songs. Don't forget about us – uses the same We belong together formula and hey, who's complaining!! Making it last shows that Mariah can still groove like her Fantasy era.

Ive bought the first release of this LP but I will get this one as well.

Madge's latest release!!!

Title:
Rating:
4 out of 5 stars

Thanks to AOL..I am able to indulge in this new release from the Queen of Reinvention. If you are into her Ray of Light album, which I think her best album yet, you will love this album. The main concept is dance but some of the tracks are beautifully haunting and poppish rather than hard core dance.

If you dont fancy her first single Hung Up, dont fret. This album is quite eclectic in the Dance sort of way. I have a few favourites on this album:

1. Isaac – beautiful… absolutely haunting. Its a cross of Enigma and Frozen. And the Yemen singer featured on here is wonderful. Well done , Madge!!!

2. Push – Its like having Kylie's Fever track on the Fever album. Its totally different from the other tracks… very poppish and catchy. The chorus reminds me of Like a prayer.

3. Like it or not – my third favourite – sounds a bit like Goldfrapp + Garbage.

Some of the tracks such as Future Lovers sound like Ray of Light, Erotica and Justify My love. Get together sounds a bit like Kylie's Love at First Sight. Nice to see Madge back to her dance root.

Madge will definitely go far with this album!!!! I hope that she will release Isaac and Push.

Euphemism

The word 'Self discovery' is an excuse for self promotion. People are naturally unflattered with the state of their well being.. their mere existence. People like to believe that they are wearing multi-layered mask behind which their true self are safely hidden. As they go through life, each layer is disposed of…

anyway, I'm more 'for' exfoliating haha and growing up. Too much confusion in the world to confused yourself more with the task to self discover your potentials. Live one day at a time..live life to the fullest… Optimism is the word and make the best of what you've got!!!

Feeling a bit philosophical today but nuhhh.. ive got loads of other things to think about.. and right now I need some grubs in my growling tummy!!!!

ok a pic to stare at for a second or so…

aaahhhhh i do misss home!!!!


Sorry.. can't help it..juvenile but hey i need a break haha

You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.
