Time really flies. Most of our mid-term exams are already over, with just one more calculus test before the Raya holidays. And from there, just one month away from the final exams. Both the SAT Reasoning and Subject Tests will also be coming up. At least I can look forward to music lessons from the IMPAC club. Finally get the chance to learn some music after waiting so long... Yay.

The actual conference started on Tuesday where we were supposed to be lobbying and forming allegiances with other countries, obtaining signatories and donations and writing resolutions. Everything would have gone smoothly that day if only the news that the SAT results had not come in at a critical moment when we were finalizing our resolutions. As a result, there was a slight panic and confusion among some of the AUP students of INTI... Luckily I found that I had passed the cut-off point of 1800 marks... with an entire section missing from the final score... How lucky >.<
The second day was for the committee debate, where we presented each of our resolutions and voted for them. This is where the situations are simulated as in real life. It was interesting, with some amusing debates by the different delegates. They also presented us with a crisis that we were supposed to solve in 20 minutes, divided by continent. Europe (our continent) was the only that joked and laughed through the entire 20 minutes, and our resolution was the one that passed.. so of course we were talking about it some time after that... We were also just informed today that our resolution made it to the General Assembly on Saturday, which means it was among the best in our committee. At least we got something out of it.
We're going to have the mid-term exam for computer class next week, right after KLIMUN... 500+ pages of the book and I've barely touched anything. This will be a first.. Let's see what happens then... O.o

The first week, orientation week, or called OLE (don't know what it means, I've forgotten), was already quite a surprise to me. Being a victim of the National Service Program, and subjected to three months of military torture and treatment (as well as their absolutely, ridiculously narrow-minded thinking and reasoning), I think I've become too accustomed to the military administration. The openness of the way orientation was conducted came as a slight surprise to me, especially when one of the first things we were asked to do was to find a partner of the opposite sex. This was a change from a place where it was literally a sin even to look at members of the opposite sex, much less talk to them @.@. At least I'm back in a normal community.
Back to to the present. On the third day of orientation, Thursday night, there was a celebration for American Independence Day. Yes, we celebrate America's independence here, due to the fact we will eventually become part of American society... The celebration was interesting enough, there were performances, oldies from the 60's or 70's, and dancing O.o
