so after a long hibernation period (hey it's monsoon season after all. the closest we'll get to winter), i'm back to pump some life into this shit hole. back by popular demand (well, two will be counted as popular, considering a grand total of 3 people have been here in recent months), i'll update.
orientation was funnnn. haven't had that much fun since..... damn i don't think i've ever had that much fun anytime recently. except maybe kluang. but kluang was slack compared to this. congratulations to the crew for a successful and well run orientation, even though it was your first and a first for the entire school. good job guys!
and to Orientation Group 2: the CRUNBLERZ!!! thanks for being a great group, for being very on for everything and putting up with me for the whole week. thanks to the guys: nat ong, clement tan, bank, mark chua, tan jun wei, shivana, ronald ip, jordan tan, chan zheng hao (whenever you turned up), chris cheong, joel ong and jia qing. and to the three girls, zabrina, victoria and clarissa, thanks for letting us bury you =P. and not to forget my partner OGL: shreya mohta, even if you did abandon us during the acsiting race (jkjk). thank you all for making the orientation the best that it could be.
so then came the bridging week, full of random lectures. another good period of time wasting. the best of course was on friday, when we the champions taking malay b effectively had about two hours free period. well, there was 'lesson', but didn't really matter much to us. and in that one week, the year 5 guys played more football together than we are likely to play for the rest of the semester. well, the school does encourage friendships and bonding, so what better way than football?
bridging finally came to an end (fortunately and unfortunately) on monday, and yesterday we had what was effectively our first proper lessons of the year. most importantly we were introduced to the subjects and the teachers. actually i think the teachers are more important. so i can safely say that a couple of my subjects should be secure, but the other subjects leave much to be desired.
as to my class, we were involuntarily thrown about last week, during the bridging course. (to any 5.4 classmates reading this, please forgive me. i'm just being honest). when i first entered the class i completely hated it. i saw a class of half ex-GEPs. i won't comment on the teachers, especially with all the recent reports on bloggers and stuff. but i hated the class. i hated whoever put me there. i wanted out so much. at that point i would have done anything just to get out of the class. especially since i had been moved from what seemed to be the perfect class of 5.13 Ecclesiastes (YES! i can spell the class name!). i wanted to go back there.
but i guess God as a purpose for everything that happens. as it turned out, a few days later all the class were reshuffled yet again, and it seemed that those between 5.6 and 5.15 were completely messed up. at this point i still resented my class, so naturally i was pissed off when there didn't seem to be any change at all to my class. and suddenly the next door class of 5.3, which would come to be known as the monastery for its lack of girls, seemed like the perfect class. i knew almost everyone in that class, compared to 5.4 where i barely knew half of them.
again i wanted out of 5.4 so much. but it was not to be. for better or for worse i was stuck with this class.
ok now i really must apologise to those classmates who read this. you guys (and girls) have proven to be a fairly fun loving class, contrary to what i believed. there's nothing much i can say about you all, other than that i'm sure we're going to thoroughly enjoy each others' company for the next two years. NUMBERS FOREVER!!!
so yeah. now everyone is up to date (everyone being kink, ethan, and maybe sean low). and my leg is killing me again. thank you song yun for giving me this beautiful bruise right above my ankle.
and our first chamber rehearsal for the year proved to be an... interesting one. we were all basically sight reading the thing. the first piece wasn't too bad, but we more or less died many times over during the waltz thingie (why are we always doing waltzes?).
so here you are. a nice long update after a nice long wait.
i see you around everyday. i've known you for long enough. you're just across the level. but it seems like a million miles away. there's nothing i can do to get closer, because the walls have ears. too many would know.
yet you stole my heart. without even knowing it. now whenever i see you i can't help but look at you and wonder, will you ever notice me? will i ever be part of your life? or am i destined to just while away the days wondering, what life would be like had you accepted me. there's nothing that can be done now. nothing but to wait, and see where life takes you and me...
you may know who you are if you read this, which i doubt. but if you do, please, please, let me know. i want to know so much. will you be mine?
