gahh... my mom didn't let me go play football in school today. of all days. when most everyone who normally plays will be there. grrr. thankfully it's back to school tomorrow, since school - exams - lessons = football. but now that i think about it. there's almost zero time left before school ends. compared to the 4 years i've spent in the school, even to the two years i've spent with this class, 2 weeks is the width of a line compared to the length of a football field. very little time remains. all the more i should have gone to play today. gahh.
an eventful 4 years i have to say. 1.9 james. 2.4 judah. 3.16 habakkuk. 4.16 enoch. all the people i've met. all the friends (and enemies) i've made. desaru. shanghai. kluang. tiger cup finals. sec 1 i was guai. sec 2 i started letting off. sec 3 i came to habakkuk. and in that class the biggest changes were to happen. not to mention in 4.16 enoch. last year we were still more or less in our own separate groups. this year those groups still remain, but more and bigger ones have formed, which stay only within the class. i will remember most the football group. which consisted of roughly half the class.
this is the class i will remember for a long time to come. i can safely say i grew up in this class. most of the time events would force me to adapt, but it's all for the better. i will cherish all the time i spent around these people, even having shared the same room as shaun poon. now that he and ming wei are no longer around, it still feels strange state the class strength as 30, when for over a year it was 32. the adventures in enochpolis. none will forget.
and i cannot forget the scouts. the plc of 04-05. us bunch of semi-slackers. but never despair! we have The Chosen One! i've spent about as much time with them as with .16, and some even longer, people who were in my sec 2 class, like kwark/kink/konk/kinky-tinky, and por(paul). and people that i've known for longer than those in .16. like maurice, aaron, lijin, jamal(you traitor =P), jon wong etc. there're many more. i'm just lazy to type. all the camps. thai camporee (remember kink's homestay), scotland jam, district pltc, recruits camp, cca hikes, stc, plsc, camp leaping wolf (i wanna go back!!!). the Rightunders Reformed. these i will remember for time to come.
these have made the biggest impact on me these last few years in acs Independent. despite being in the 'same school' next year, it will still seem like a different era to me, an era known as me secondary school life, which can be summed up in a few words: it was when i grew up. to anyone reading this, if you remember nothing else, remember these four years of your life, remember what you've been through, remember the people, the places, the trials, and the fun times. you will one day look back on these times and wish you were back here again.
i know this is a bit late, but to all the o level guys, all the best. some of you are people i will remember as individuals. some i will remember as groups. but trust me. i will remember you all.
