- Hearing folks getting settled in Uni and finishing sixth form makes me feel old.
+ Though it does make me nostalgic, I don't know...
- Maybe I'm feeling a little melancholy knowing that this is my final year, and some of my peers have already graduated since they were on Bachelors

Though enough reminiscing and self reflection, I do hope you enjoy your uni years, I'm guessing it's freshers next week, right? We ended up starting early and doing a small challenge. I didn't see the point of it at the time, but I am glad we went through it. It was a nice ice-breaker and it helped me get to know my fellow classmates. Perhaps if you can, try seeing if you can't find some of your future classmates, it'll be useful to know the folks you could potentially be working with in the coming years.

+ It is usually switching from warm weather to cool weather conditions
- Rain falls when I go out from home.
+ Rain does not badly affect traffic and getting home at a good time.
+ Bought some clothing today to replace the first clothing that was lost somehow.

I'm compelled to ask, how?

+ Metroid Samus Returns has released
- I'm going to have to wait until next week before I get my copy
+ The positive reception and reviews really have made me optimistic.

Obvious – by sticking my finger into it while it was spinning.

– The thumb somehow broke a blade on the fan
+ Didn’t hurt that much thankfully
– Tried to break off another blade to balance the fan but it made it worse as my fan has 7 blades

–/+ I screwed the fan up
+ Well, the fan was quite loud, so I don’t regret breaking it
– Now I won’t be able to use that old PC for a while as I’ll need to get a replacement fan

Perhaps I should've asked why instead. :P

- Talk of fans makes me realise that I ought to give my laptop some inner maintenance.

The answer to that would be:
I don’t know why – I guess I just like messing around with it. Well, that’s what I get for doing so!

Hehe, I've been there! Though in my case, the fan was already retired, so I was just playing with it, hooked directly up to a PSU on the floor. Scared the hell out of me though!

The only reason my PPD is as high as it currently stands is due to the posting sprees I used to do with Hoodcom back in 2013. If we're going by my current PPD for the past few months, I'd say I'm around 5.

While I do admire your eagerness, from experience, I find posting for the sake of posting can cause you to burn out. I'd rather you post for laughs rather than as an obligation.

I've broken two fans' blades from sticking my hand in them by accident, and another one by forgetting plug the 12 volt into the motherboard causing the fan to explode (sparks, fire and smoke everywhere!)

This also happened to me was when we got our exterior walls painted and they accidentally painted over the window crack. Normally I open the single-paned thing by quickly shoving the window out, but this time my entire arm went straight through the window lol.

+ Been really enjoying Samus Returns, this is the first time I've really got into a Metroid game and it really makes me want to explore the series more. I think this game makes things far easier than the original by giving you a map, and also the ability to scan what blocks are breakable.

- My dad is leaving for China for 2 whole weeks so I have the house to myself for a while, although some people may like that it'll just be really quiet around here.
