A few announcements

This’ll be fairly short so I’m not going to put a spoiler.

Firstly, I’ve written a summary of my short MUN career as I enter retirement from MUN. It’s listed as a page instead of a post, so it doesn’t appear in The Compiler’s posts. Probably good for those curious.

Secondly, I’ve made a page where all my past essays have been uploaded for others to read. I actually did this about a couple weeks back or somewhere around there as an experiment to see who would find their way there and how many would actually end up – all I remember is that one curious soul found their way to that page the day after it was made, so kudos to him/her. That said, I feel it’s only fair to announce this properly so if you’re interested to read my past essays, head over here.

Finally, I’ve drafted a proper gForm for those interested to contribute module reviews. (I actually realize I’ve done this in a past post but ignore that gForm).Yes, there’s nothing stopping you from starting up your own blog to post your reviews; yes, you can also just write your module reviews in NUS Mods. Some might not want to just make a short-lived blog solely for reviews, though; and they’d be happy just writing one and being credited for it without having to maintain other aspects of a blog. Neither do others want to work within the unformatted nature of NUS Mods when WordPress offers slightly more formatting options, so it’s the intersection of both groups that I’m looking at with this post.

Results will be out on 27th December. One can’t change the results they got, but one can help future students taking the module next semester or in a different year get a rough idea of what that module is ^^. I’ve only done PS modules because I’m a PS major, but if others can weigh in for different majors or even different mods I’d be more than happy to host their reviews here even after I’ve graduated.

So for those interested, please click here and fill it up and I’ll try to get in touch with you asap to work things out. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ – the sidebar also has a link if one’s missed it.

 

Until then~

Upcoming absence and updates

There used to be a function in Movie Battles 2 that would automatically state the track’s name and other details which one was listening to in-game. A cool feature, and WordPress should definitely have something like that. There’s probably a plugin but as I’m not using the self-hosted version of Word nor the paid versions where plugins are available, manual typing will suffice. Maybe in the future there’ll be a small box (like Live Journal and DreamWidth) where one can type in the song they’re currently listening to.

Anyway, on to the topic of this post. I’ll be gone for the next couple of weeks due to some camps, some of which may have a video made about them.ย I’ve made an announcement for the relevant Steam group/clanย andย finished most of the projects I wanted to work on.

I’m quite surprised that this blog has been getting a lot more hits (>20 consistently) pretty much due to the module reviews. Bidding periods are coming up soon and reading reviews might save one the trouble of going for a lecture to ascertain the course’s content, so…yea. The shameless plug I did posting in NUSMods also helped, based on the traffic statistics.

I will, after coming back from the camps, have a new article about Vanilla Dream, as well as finish ย up the rest of the 5 modules that I was going to review. Here’s hoping that this time this year will be a better time than it was last year~

SMUN 2016

At long last, the compilation video I had imagined has been completed. It looks quite nice if I do say so myself, perhaps if I learned AfterEffects it would look better.

Almost one week ago (down to the hour), SMUN 2016 ended. I had planned on it being my second and last MUN, with my first MUN being SMUN 2015 where I attended as a delegate within the UNHCR Council. After finding it quite fun, I made a compilation video of my Council and how MUNs generally went (macro, not micro, view).

Go on…
