2013.1.4 爱你一生一世

Yet another day that I feel I need a boyfriend. 我的真命天子,我的白马王子,我的梦中情人,快现身吧!

Today is 爱你一生一世 day and unless someone powerful enough decides that we should recount the dates, and no longer call it by the name of A.D., 爱你一生一世 day will never come back. And I didn't have a bf to spend 爱你一生一世 day with )': I really need to get a bf soon before I miss out any more of these wonderful dates >.<

Today I went to the Inaugural CogSci Connects Conference held in NUS. I went alone. ON 爱你一生一世 DAY I WENT OUT ALONE D: But the Conference was really not bad. It was convened by a 17-year-old girl and put together by students. When I was 17, I had no such big dreams. At 17, I gave my whole life to volunteering and PW. I think during that year, I spent so much time either on ground or just hanging out with friends from my volunteering stints when there was nothing else much. I really respect that girl who put this Conference together.

Even though I was alone, it wasn't a lonely experience. Because there was no communicating during the Conference, so I didn't feel bad that I didn't have a friend. And also, Nobelle once said there is no big deal about having a social dot, because she goes to school to learn, and not chit-chat with others in class. 

The talks today were really interesting. Especially the one on Seeing and Not Seeing. I always thought illusions were a little bit of magic, but Prof Brian Scholl made it all link with the brain and how it removes stationary objects. 

The talks on music were not so interesting in terms of the tone of the speakers, but the content was awesome. I especially liked the part on rapping and walking. Though idk too much about the brain, but I'm really grateful that all these professors from distinguished universities around the world did not include too much jargon and made it really simple to understand what they were studying (:

Then there was a concert Kaiwen was supposed to perform at but she ended up not playing because she had orchestra. I really wanted to watch her perform live! >.< but it's okay (: I'm sure there'll be many more chances! The two girls who organised the event performed as well. They really have good voices :D

After today, I realised once again that the world is so huge and it contains so many fascinating things which I should invest my time in. But it really takes a lot to pull away from the gravity of the TV. Even while I was travelling on the train this morning, me and Jiayu were whatsapping about drama. I should go to bed now to be able to wake up on time for Day 2 of the Conference tmr. But I'm wondering if I should just watch one more episode /:
