Origins of TIPS

Just died from my maths test this evening. It's a stretch of tests now in NUS. Anyway here's an exerpt of the conversation I just had with fattybombom:
me: u noe just before the test i had yesterday, i suddenly recalled the "gatherings" tips have before all the exams. then we'd wish each other good luck and stuff... so nostalgic
WiL... ... : yah man...................it;s like how good ah? we study together, look for exam papers together, pass each other tips and info about things to look out for on the exam
WiL... ... : it's good to find such a group of frens to study with......healthy competition
WiL... ... : working together....yeah
me: YES... and now, everybody in the uni is like so individualistic. dun work together. it's really diff to find the bonds we had
WiL... ... : i kinda had such a flashback recently too......coz ive been like spending everyday in the library? damn no life lah.....only weekend go out....then weekend go out feel so guilty..............
I just realised the importance of all the small gestures we had before each tests/exams we have. All the gatherings outside the staff office and the handshakes to "suck the good luck off each other"... I don't think I'd be able to experience these again, but I believe it's good enough that I had experienced this once.

e part abt uni being more individualistic is so true man. No one seems to care abt anyone else. not much anyway. and the relative marking thing is not helping. feels so competitive. ah well.. that's why we are still in contact after so many years! still fighting the same battle against all tests! haha. =)

hmM... that's pretty rite... ok lah, the peeps here in my course are all relatively helpful, at least they bother to explain things to me when i need help? tink we rarely see such gestures cuz it doesn't seem very right (when u get older) to be "sucking the good luck off ur frenz" b4 a test? anyway, hope this sem passes quickerly, then we can finially get a proper outing... muz go plan well...
