Guess whose back?

That's right, "Jo" finished his exams today...

Any questions?

I am standing at the bottom of a huge mountain

I am looking up at the mountain, contemplating how enormously steep and astronomically gigantic it is. I have to climb to the top of the mountain. I have to reach the top, but I do not know what the shadows of the rocks that stick out of the steepness of the mountain are hiding from me. But I cannot dwell on that I need to keep on moving. I feel like turning back and moving away from facing the mountain. Move away to a stress-free life of not caring, but I digress. I have to persevere through this, to climb to the furthest reaches of the mountain. I need to do this. I have no choice... I just wish I can make it back again in one piece.

My exam is tomorrow. Wish me luck.

P.S. Sorry but I am not going to update this blog till I finish my last exam on the 28th of May. Bare with me for a few weeks.

My constantly changing name...

I love Starbucks. It is like a second home to me... except, one that is available everywhere around the world. There is a Starbucks literally 2 min away by foot from where I am currently residing, so I always go there to get my daily cup of Latte.

They started this new system in my local Starbucks where they ask for your name or initials after you order your drink to avoid any confusion about whose drink it is when you go to collect it. So anyway, every week day there is usually a different barista and the conversation goes something like this:

"Hi! can I have a Grande Latte to go?"
"Take away or to stay in?"
"To go..."
"Name or initials please"
Barista stares at me for a sec. "Name or initials to put down on your drink" (apparently she thought I said No as oppose to Mo)
"Mo... EM- O!"
"Aah, ok"

I pay and they usually get my name right but occasionally they get it wrong. Today, was one of those days...

My name is Mio today. Apparently, I come from a family of Cats!
