Texas Instruments

Heay there precious readers,

Am preparing for exam right now. Sitting in front of a computer in the library. Tapi sempat je nak curik masa jap update blog..ngehehehe..

Texas Instruments? Does it rings a bell to you?
yes, it is a well known calculator manufacturer which i'd been introduced to when I went to KMB. I bought this so called graphic-display-calculator (TEXAS INSTRUMENTS TI-84)back then which cost me RM360. Nak jaga GDC nih, bukan bende yg mudah. Kalau terjatuh, sume org akan pandang and give an omg!-GDC-die-jatuh-matilah kinda look sebab everyone kt KMB tuh faham how precious this particular 'machine' is.

Nak dijadikan cerita, this morning, I had STAT lab at Boucke 241. The class started at 9.05am and I arrived as early as 8.50am. Sampai je lab, I straight away buat la the lab exercise and guess what, within 20 minutes, I was done. It was 9.25 when I walked out of the room.

Then I had breakfast at the HUB. Two doughnuts are good enough for me despite the fact that the campus is no longer selling Dunkin Donuts. Well, lepas makan bagai, took a bus to the library, and buat homework Geochem.

sudden sudden (teringat kak julia), when I encountered a problem that needs a calculation, I searched my bag for my PRECIOUS GDC but!! it wasn't in my bag. I had a sudden adrenaline rush! Kaku seketika. Fikir punya fikir, I realized that I might have left it at 241 Boucke. And I scolded myself for being so clumsy!! tu la, kelas habis 9.55am, aku keluar 9.25am! padan muka!

so, calmly, I checked my mailbox, harap2 TA would send me email saying he keeps my GDC. tapi nan ado!!! the only thing i hope is that Brooke, a girl sitting next to me in the class will keep it and give it back to me this Friday.

And late in the afternoon, I went back home. On my way, I decided to stop by at the bookstore nak usha calculator baru. I need to have one sebab the next day ada exam hydro which requires extensive use of calculator. Kat bookstore cam mahal jek, and I went to student bookstore at the downtown, and without much hesitation, I bought myself a new calculator, TEXAS INSTRUMENTS TI-30X IIB-an ordinary scientific calculator. And it cost me $16. Quite affordable for a Texas Instruments. Am happy despite sedih jugak my old GDC yg harganya $159 at this particular store hilang, after 3 tahun it served my needs. *sigh*

And after dinner, I rushed back to the library. Nak sambung study hydro and INART. The first thing I did was to check my mail, and guess what!!!
The TA, Matt did send me email this morning saying he keeps my GDC. The mail was sent at 9.48am!!! 7 minutes before my class officially ends. **gosh!!** Meaning to say, if i stayed a bit longer in the class, I would not have left my GDC behind.

So, LESSON LEARNED **mode kak Carrie jap**

p/s: Best jugak this new calculator, it brings back my secondary school memories~
