Hello friends :)
First things first…
HAPPY 1st MARCH!!
It’s amazing how time flies – we’re into the third month of 2014 already. And the only kinda big thing that happened so far is only O1??!! This time last year I was starting to die and worry (pointlessly) about little quizzes and SYF…. AND GRACES CAMP.
Ok reminiscing session ended.
I am tired.
Really, really tired.
It has been about a week plus into official HC school life and yes.
I NEED SLEEP!!!!!!!!
I think I speak for most people for this hahaha. But then again, no amount of sleep is ever quite enough for me.
People are such greedy creatures.
Anyway for the past week, I’ve been doing all sorts of things which I’ll be sharing with you in a moment.
Despite the fact that HC is starting to suck the life out of me, I feel happy, surprisingly. Not over the moon ecstatic (BUT I AM V HAPPY NOW BECAUSE NEW iMAC WOOHOOO THANK YOU MUMMY I LOVE YOU) but a peaceful kind of happy.
Please do not question my sanity.
Moving on to proper stuff!
This is really the only big thing I remember from last week. Oh yes and lessons officially began from Wednesday! Somehow many details are long forgotten already… But faculty dance practice every single day paid off in the end – ARES WON POP!! Really really happy about this! Didn’t disappoint faccomm/seniors woooot. Honestly morale wasn’t the best before performance so everyone was really nervous but HAHAHAHAHAHA. Faculty pride ;))))))
&&& super thankful for this dance partner who’s as noob as me (or maybe I’m worse) hehehe!
Photos with the classmates!! (Who are lovely btw)
This whole POP thing is a somewhat sensitive topic because everyone put in so much effort yet only one faculty gets to win (but then again competition is a source of motivation for many). Really not trying to be some stupid bullcrapper here but everyone deserves to win. Artermis’ dance was mindblowing (gotta say the mask is kinda scary though), Athena’s dance and chants = really amazing (with cool songs like Work Hard Play Hard, though I recently figured I cannot stand listening to the whole song) and Apollo’s lights are seriously the coolest stuff in town. Energy level at central plaza that night hit the sky! Super memorable :)))))))
But it gets annoying when people start to diss Ares by saying “____ deserved to win pls” and stuff like that. (Greater problem: they’re not even from that fac)
‘Cause gurl. That honestly hurt.
(Lesson learnt: Put yourself in others’ shoes before saying mean things!!)
It’s not even important at all who own POP because in two months, we’ll be wondering what the heck is the difference between the terms amphoteric and amphipathic, or what on earth is Geometric Progression. And what the poopoo is ADORE-able solutions. Last one is applicable to every HC kid. Hahaha.
Anyway POP was a fun fun night (also enjoyed the mini SODACHE session with the CT).
Because of a series of matters, I’m involved in Dramafeste’14 as a crew member! Painter to be exact, but we all know I can’t do anything relating to Art & Craft properly…….. But yes, so far so good!!
Just today at work session with fellow classmates! (and supermodel Kenny)
#3 NHMed Meeting
Even though this meeting isn’t the most important/major, got my butt into the Dean’s Office of YLLSoM! Super amazing hahaha I’m going to sound so stupid and shallow and suaku but yes it was super cool being in a meeting room there ok.
Ok spazzing session over.
Thank you to FBN for “lending” me his super cute and amazing little cousins for filming ;)
#4 School & Stuff
(Picture of Captain’s Ball game during Senior Meet Junior session hahaha)
Honestly school has been great, loving the people in my class, loving everything (except the Japanese stall Udon, it really doesn’t rock, please don’t eat it) in HC.
But academics wise, I’m already losing grip and sliding down the mountain. Which I thought I conquered. HAHAHAHA no la kidding but starting to get pretty stressed?!?! And it has only been 1 week into school. Seriously.
Confession: Slacked my butt off most lessons in NY but still managed to get by pretty decently… But over here, if I just turn over to attempt to piss Mary off, the lesson would have already flown from Pg 2 to Pg 722010176119.
Really gonna do every single tutorial baby. Or at least try.
And class is just different without 404 :’( no more disturbing of Tong Tong (or Yuan Zhen), no more rivers/seas between Becca and me, no more occasional “stop talking troll” from Christine Wong, no more squealing Valerine when I poke her, no more watching Rachelian do weird things in class (hint: involves shoes), no more smiling at Nessa at random points, no more Jiayan and her nose-offering moments (this one inside joke), no more Wan Ning stacking up phones and removing phone covers, no more Dana turning around to scribble mean things on my worksheet, no more Gwyneth in front of flag-raising/lab sessions/lectures, no more bulk Sueyu-bullying moments, no more Yun Hsin to roll her eyes at me when I say stupid stuff, no more Esther discovering my deep dark secrets, no more teachers scolding Mary/Gwyneth for talking to me, no more 404…………. :’(
Anyway relieving some 404 moments during Gwyneth’s and Becca’s sweet 17th!!
But then 14S7C isn’t bad at all, and in fact some people are super funny (like
Xinjie who constantly questions why we’re so weird) and lovable victims of my “bullying”.
Photo with 13S7C!! (Not everyone is in the photo though :( I.e. Mary)
(managed to get Xinjie-blackmail-material from this photoshoot)
Really love Mary a lot and I know you’ll read this SO IM TELLING YOU NOT TO RISK IT AND GO FOR NATIONALS. REALLY. Let it heal and get stronger than ever!!!!!
Also CCA is giving many people headeggs so here’s some love for you if CCA matters are pissing you off. Everything will get better!! Congratulations if you got into the CCA of your choice as well :)
MAY HC LIFE BE EVEN MORE EXCITING!!!
Oh my god wait. I can’t believe I didn’t even talk about PE at all.
Anyway PE (and it’s 1.5h long worth of torture) has been scary for the following reasons:
• Ultra fit and feathery-light people in my class make it impossible to feel good about myself
• I NEED TO JUMP ACROSS THIS MINI LONGKANG to get to the terraces, because everyone else in my class does it. When Mary disappeared for PE yesterday, the moment to conquer my fear has arrived. (Mary is also scared ok)
I closed my eyes as my heart palpitated in my chest. I prepared for the great jump as my hands got increasingly sweaty. I whispered “you can do it” to myself before attempting for this greatest leap (of faith) I was about to do.
Ok crap aside basically I just crossed over at the end of the longkang where the hole isn’t that big and managed to step over just like that. Thank you for my classmates who volunteered to carry me across (I told Ng to lie there to be a wooden plank but he disappeared right at that very moment when I needed him the most so..) and people who were cheering for me at the sidelines. Your moral support is very much appreciated. Without you, I’d never have crossed the longkang. I thank you with an overwhelming amount of sincerity.
Yes. I need help.
HAHAAHAHA NEED TO STOP TALKING NONSENSE
That’s it for Life in HC Part 2.
Haahah please stay tuned for subsequent parts.
MAY THE WEEK(S) AHEAD BE WONDERFUL.
Much love for you.
(P.S. Forgive me if a bit incoherent laaaaaa)
