Sorry! I blame the Chinese language wholeheartedly for my terrible lapse in posting so far this year. Our first week of the year was devoted to midterm exams, and we’ve been thrown more tests and presentations this week. Can’t wait for our winter holidays to finally begin next week!I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff that should’ve been posted ages ago so I’ll be putting that up then.
In the meantime – proof of my studying: here are some of my gleanings in flash card form. As you can see I’ve been getting my priorities straight in terms of the speed x focus = successful revision formula. I now plan to only ever revise using Harry Potter themed flashcards.

Both reveal terrible and dark secrets. Click for larger-format shocks!My mum has been trying to get me to take driving lessons in Taiwan. Eek.
