So long, Graduate school

Saturday, June 26th, I have officially completed my Master degree.  After the past 3 months of struggling with the thesis, and all those days with assignments, quizzes, term papers, exams.
How do I feel?  Very relieved!  Looking forward to more accomplishment.  Taking yoga class, French class, and culinary class (maybe) for a start.

Well, hello Master of Science in Information Systems.

Her handsome Italian

It happened when I first laid my eyes on his tall figure in Juventus uniform from my daddy's subscribed sport newspaper in 1997.  I was never much a sport person, but because of him I started to enjoy soccer, as long as he is in the game.  Despite all the hateful comments toward his performances and the rise of other younger talented good-looking players, I still like him best.  As of 1 February 2010, he is the all time leading scorer in European Cup competitions.  Time flies, sport stars do get old, but he will always be my Super Pippo.
Italy exited the World Cup finals without winning a game, they have not won at all in 2010 World Cup.  But I could care less since he was not in the team.

Life in Mono

Great Expectations, with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow, 1998, I still remember.  I was in my last year of junior high.  Rented the VCD (yes, 1998 was the VCD era) without my parents' acknowledgement.  Well, until daddy found out, it was rated PG-13, got shut down, but I still managed to finish the movie when daddy was not around.  That was how memorable this movie is, not the PG-13 part, but I personally think that's the best of both Ethan and Gwyneth, as of today.

Life in mono, one of the movie's feature soundtrack, is actually the most memorable part, at least to me.  It expresses a lot of feelings, both the melody and lyrics.  Recently my sister re-watched the movie again, so we listen to this song, again and again.
The stranger sang a theme, from someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall, and no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall, when you came along

Ingenue, I just don't know what to do

The tree-lined avenue, begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets, in tea and cigarettes
But I can't seem to forget, when you came along
There are many interpretations regarding the lyrics.  I buy this one more, it's about meeting this person, for a short period of time, and we were left with a feeling that we don't even know when it started yet we couldn't forget.  Well, that is the hardest part, to forget.
