Come Back To Me...

In the past, when I first met you, I felt that everything was possible because of you. Because you were beside me. Those words had a meaning... but now, because I was stupid enough to ignore you for a period of time. And when I realized my mistakes, it was already too late. Those same words were a stranger to me now. Now I'm hanging on by sheer willpower, which is not enough. Would you please come back to my life again? Would you even forgive me for all the times I took you for granted? Would you forgive me again? For all the empty promises that I've made? I need you back into my lfie again..... Would you come back to me? God?

Ok... It's a short equation

Primary school=PVC File
Secondary School=PVC File+Ring files (about 6 of them)
Secondary 3=Ring Files (LOADS OF THEM. Minimum three inches for some subjects!)

My bag weighs a ton everyday man... OMG.

Super Good Day!

I know all of you have been waiting for an update, so here it is. Today is a super super good day for me and loads of good stuff happened in the week, and I'll tell you one by one.

Firstly, I got 13/15 for my first chemistry assignments and 21/25 for the second. I was really happy man... My chem teacher, Mr Chen Ling Kwong, the teacher-in-charge of fencing in SJI, is a good teacher. However, he's kind of weird as he thinks that our class is the best class or a good class. Therefore, he has really high expectations of us and expects us to do well in everything. He teaches really fast. Wayyyy too fast. Therefore I was elated to find out that I didn't do badly for my chemistry.

Secondly, I GOT ELECTED AS CLASS CHAIRMAN! Haha. Now I'm a permanent chairman of class 335 or 3G2-2. I was elated as I know what it's like to have a sucker, slacker, backstabber with no class spirit person for a chairman (Don't worry Akira I'm "not" referring to you). Therefore let this be an opportunity for me to show that I can actually lead the class well and let 3G2-2 be one of the best class ever.

Thridly, I GOT ACCEPTED BY SPH TO BECOME A SCHOOL REPORTER! I just got the notification letter today. It was damn SHIOK la... I am now working for SPH as one of their reporters. However, this means that I have even LESS time to play and blog.... But I think it's worth it. Went to Jack's Place to celebrate... Their steaks ROCK! Mike you should eat more of them. Then you can GROW MORE horizontally.

Fourthly, the presentation that Me, Peter, Timothy and Myles made in front of the WHOLE Sec 2 was FANTASTIC! I think I got the hang of public speaking, and I'm on my way to improve! I actually could convince one of my juniors to go... So this means that I have done quite a fair job. He was pestering me man... He said "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry. The IJTP girls hot or not?" LOLZ. I will not tell you guys my answer, in case some IJTP girls actually read this. Haha.

Lastly, today's training was DAMN FUN! I went all out and tried my best to play well and tackle. Though I made mistakes and have injuries all over my body, I was happy that I've made some improvements. Try your best. It will bring you good.

I've had lots of problems in the beginning of Sec 3, like Physics, Math and stuff. These problems almost made me feel like giving up or actually dropping a subject. However, the events this week made me realise that my sec 3 life is like the weather. No matter how rainy or cloudy it is, there will still be a time where you can see a clear blue sky and sunny weather. The events which happened this week made me feel that all my efforts and determination were worth it. Let's hope that things will continue to get better and even if it got worse, I can still overcome it with an optimistic attitude. As you battle through the thunderstorms, you will eventually triumph over them and see your own piece of blue sky. Well, that's all.

Exhaustion? Mentally Unprepared?

First day of school. What can I say? Life in 335 is tough. The first thing I found out is that they changed our class names from 33+ or 32+ into some stupid system called 3G 1/2/3. Don't get what I mean? Let me tell you. My class is called 3G2-2, which means it's a Sec "3" class on the "2nd" floor, "2nd" class from the left. 3G2-2. Geddit? Form teacher is Ms Tracy Goh and Mrs Deborah Tan. My opinions? They're teachers who teach REALLY FAST. OMG. You have to catch up and write notes real fast. Tracy Goh can be quite an interesting Literature teacher. You should have listened to her saying the "Singaporean Version" of the scene between "Egeus and Lysander". It's damn funny I tell you. Egeus was scolding Lysander for making his daughter fall in love with him.

Egeus: This man hath bewitched the bosom of my child,

Thou! Thou! Lysander Thou hast given her rhymes and interchanged Love Tokens with my child.

Thou hast by moonlight at her window sung, with feigning voice, verses of feigning love

And sto'ln the impression of her fantasy, with bracelets of hair, rings, gauds, conceits,

knacks, trifles, nosegays, sweetmeats- Messengers of strong prevailment in unhardened youth.

With cunning has thou filched my daughter's heart, turn her obedience, which is due to me, to stubborn harshness.

That's what the book says. Here's what Tracy Goh said:

Egeus: You! You! Lysander This man has cast a spell on my daughter (Seduced). You have given her stupid poetry and exchanged love tokens with her. You sing love songs to her under my HDB flat, with your stupid voice and stolen her heart with your friendship bands, toys and lollipops. Blah blah blah. She is an interesting teacher.

Our English teacher also quite cool. Mrs Gloria Cheng. I shall not bother explaining why . A little lazy here. Our physics teacher is sadist and crazy. He is none other than Mr Michael Chin. First thing he did when he came into our class, he said:

"EH? Where's my Sri Lankan Scholars? Cannot be what... This is ridiculous!" (Walks out of classroom). WTF! He talks to himself, makes stupid jokes and expects us to laugh, and he gives homework like.. Every lesson. Everytime he tells us that we have homework with that stupid smile of his.... But still, he is a good teacher. Just kinda crazy that's all.

Enough about teachers. Here's what I feel about Sec 3. It's basically the end of our playtime and the playful attitude of 208'07. They mean business, and they will not repeat whatever they say. You have competition. Intense competition. You have to juggle between CCA and Schoolwork. There's shitloads of homework everyday, the topics are getting harder and harder. Shoot. I need to find my way out of this mess.

2008, A New Begninning, A New Me

Time flies by... I still can't accept the fact that it's 2008 already. I'm still not ready to face a new school year.... I need more time... But it's no use. So... Gear Up for a new beginning and hopefully, a new me. I want to become:

1.Better at my schoolwork
2. A person who doesn't swear alot (DIFFICULT!)
3. One who will not be distracted so easily
4. One with a better spiritual life
5. Be a more confident person

That's my wishes for 2008. Some of them will be difficult to accomplish, but I'm confident that I can do it. No use looking back at what happened in 2007 anymore. There is only one direction I can look, and that is forward. I'm going to school again, whether I'm prepared for it or not. May 2008 bring even better opportunities for me.


I need to finish:
Simultaneous Equations worksheet
Commonwealth essay (still dont know how to write)
Chinese project

ARGHH!!!! I hope I can pass up latest by next week. Or else I'll be screwed. I hope that I can get good teachers next year... At least those who can give you extensions for homework. Haha. I am so not prepared for school. But... heck. I'm still quite excited. May God bless me that I can get a class with good teachers and classmates.
