After the nice long and serious post, heres a little something thats more fun in my terms.
Here's to economic geeks =)
Heres an economic explanation to why lots of guys in ACS I are not attached
There is a certain level quality of girls which the guys in AC are willing and able to date. At a lower quality, more guys are able to date these girls (ignore the willing). A downward sloping demand curve results.
There is a certain quantity of girls available at each quality level. With fewer girls at higher quality levels, a upward sloping supply curve results.
Thus with a minimum quality level required by the guys, an excess demand results. The following diagram illustrates this phenomena
Change the demand for labour to that for girlfriends, and likewise for supply. Min wage rate would be the min quality and this diagram fails coz it doesnt show the lvl of excess demand. -.-Moving on, this issue is further complicated by the fact that there are foreign competitors who are so called more "efficient" or simply put, better.
this foreign supply is a lot less responsive to differences in quality and thus is represented by a horizontal supply curve as shown below.
Ignoring the Pworld + tariff curve, the girls from other schools are represented by "World price"
Without the outside competition, a level between Qs2 and Qd2 would be the resultant number of couples in school. However, guys getting gfs from other schools, a resultant of 0Qd is the resultant quantity of couples.
This explains the low number of couples formed in the school and yet the high number of guys attached or at least who have been attached.
Im a geek arent I?

Im suffering internal conflict.
But unlike Huck Finn, Paddy Clarke or even Siddhartha, its not bout whether to set a black man free, bout who to side with in a deteriorating family unit or over the pull of Samsara vs Enlightenment.
It seems that this one is a lot more adolescent. Its a lot more hormornal.
Its some kinda sick, twisted mind but its actually quite common. Or so i'd like to think.
Maybe its the smile.
Maybe its the height.
Maybe its the lack of mass.
Maybe its the way they pray, the way they lick cones, the way theyve got pimple scarred faces.
Honestly, tho, these r just excuses the let me justify another smart remark, another smirk, another observation.
There's a void there and im trying to fill it.
The way im filling it is just wrong. Im going against everything ive fought so hard to uphold for 2 years. Im only halfway thru and im already faltering. O so im actually more than halfway thru. Actually time is passing quite a lot faster than i tot it would. I guess, thats good in a way right?
I'd tell myself : O its not coz i dun try. Its not ur fault. Its hers.
But thats just the human need to justify their actions.
It just the great temptation to tell urself that everything is alright, ure doing well, ure doing things right.
My inability to stick to the route shows just how unready i am. It shows how i might break u again. and im not gonna do that since u told me bout ur fall at Killiney
I guess im just not ready.
But will anyone ever be ready? Honestly thats quite a tough question.
God please mould and shape me the way you wish, help me to stay aright, filling up the void the right way.
Maybe all of this is just en route to enlightenment.
Can i think, wait and fast?

Today marks the first day of my life where I didn't have to study.
But my brain is still itching for somthing to think about. so i think i was a lil overboard with questions today.
Here's what's happened today
I went for my attachment with MOE today and went to CCAB to meet my mentor and 2 grp members.
the mentor looks kinda like s choo with his calm and serene looking demeanor.
anyway, the internship started with a meeting forthe Youth Olympic Games(YOG) launch event.
den we went to HCI. The home of softball, basketball and touch rug champs.
Mentor briefed a barrage of teachers from lots of diff schs bout the setting up of booths on the day itself.
well since he was busy and the 3 of us had nothing to do but play djmax on their psps, i asked if we could go walk arnd the sch and mentor said ok! so we went walking arnd!
it was quite interesting la.. maybe im just weird but i like walking around other ppls' schs cause it shows u wad their school is like to some extent without u even sitting in any of their classes.
we were to be back at 12 and that only gave us 15 mins.
but when we got back, we ended up waiting for 30 mins. so we could have actually toured the sch more la.. =(
so we went for lunch at the pool restaurant and were fed like kings. lots of food, period
the organising committee meeting!
there was the PUB, MOE,MOH,MHA,MFA,MOF,MTI,URA,SSC,NYC,MOM,NPARKS and others that i cant remember
like WHOAH right?
after that we went to the learning centre where u get to play around with the displays and try out the equipment used in some sports. its at redhill tho so its not that accessible. google it if u want =) best of all, its free! now dun u all love that?
yep. now im tasked with coming up with a proposal for the template for the booths that ppl will be setting up on the launch day. Itll be bout the culture of other countries to promote the racial harmony theme and its supposed to tie in with the YOG so gotta figure out how we 'll wanna do that..
sounds like quite a simple job actually. But i shant talk too big coz it might turn out to be some gargantuan task =/
cola: I BET ure tagging as anon too so that uve got something to do with ur insanely free holidays.. haha! ok no i dun seriously think that way.
ben says AMEN!
