Day… SYF…

Whew! Finally got a short break for me to come here to blog.

I had a really hectic schedule for the past few days because of the exams and all. The exams were stressful and horrible as after every paper, or even during each paper, horrible thoughts of giving up would come on my mind. Like today’s A maths paper 2. I felt like giving up so much but I managed to calm myself down and continue. It’s a sure thing that I’ll fail this A Maths paper. I’m going to do something about this. I HATE FAILING!

Saturday’s SYF Outdoor competition for bands were excellent. My sister and I arrived at Kallang MRT station at about 1.15pm and waited for the rest of the hou-gang people (haha lame joke). Shortly after Safina and many others arrived. Our “gang”, ok band majors Eve and Reuben came TOGETHER and were mercilessly teased by many of us. Then we waited for a while and most of us left for the National stadium with Eve while Reuben and a few others waited for my SL Perseus and a few other boys.

We reached there very early. At about 2pm. We were like the FIRST school there and many of us were unhappy that it was so hot and that we had to wait for about an hour or so before the competition starts. We aren’t even participating in this competition…

Anyway the competition was excellent. I feel so lousy now.. The percussion sections were always very good. But I’m not going to give up! I’m going to start this Friday after my Chemistry and Physics paper 2 and Physics Practical. I hope Mr Lee allows us percussion only to open the band room for practice. If other sections are included, honestly, we won’t be able to do much. I’m going to complete my own study of the Chimes part for Ross Roy. The bells part (I LOve saying bells instead of glockenspiel so DON’T STOP ME or I will become nasty as proven to the girl who sat next to me on Satuday) is quite easy and I’ve already played that part during last year’s band camp with SKSS. So yeah…

This morning I met a mad man on my way to school. Luckily I was far away from him. These kind of stuff are actually quite normal to us living around the Woodbridge area. Especially if you are just like me studying in a school just opposite it. The man was shouting and waving his arms around. There was this Malay girl behind me who was around primary 3 i think who got scared and ran in front of me to get further away from that man. I walk pretty fast so I managed not to let the man catch up behind me.

To be all rounded in music, web design, studies… Will that be possible for me? Time will tell…

I honestly can’t wait till my O levels are over! I’ve got so many plans on what I’ll be doing after the Os! Of course, there’s also the dreaded A levels after that. though I really hope I’ll be able to make it to a JC.

Firstly there’s the Piano course which I’ll be signing up for at the Ci Yuan CC 2 blocks from my house. Courses there are rather affordable for poor people like me. haha I hope to continue my piano so that I can learn other instruments easily in future. My aim for that is to get a Grade 5 for my music theory before I leave JC. Hopefully I can get better grades but that’s the minimum for me. After I’ve completed Grade 8 for my piano I’ll really like to take up Cello.

Then there’s the Domain idea. I’ll hopefully be able to decide by then.

Also, there’s lots of free time to do whatever I want. HAHA. Going for band practices is one of them… The Alumni band… yes… can’t wait for that. It should be quite fun… Practices for that…

I’ll also try to get a job after the O’s… Earn some money to contribute to the Piano course stuff…

Oh well, these can only be done after the Os… Chinese O levels here soon… In about 2 months to be exact… Got to work hard for it… SO I won’t be around for the next couple of days… Or weeks… Coz I’ve got to get rid of this addictive hobby… Haha…

Here’s something interesting which I’ll like to share:

Father’s pride

Four friends reunited at a party after 30 years.
After a few laughs and drinks, one of them had to go to the rest room. The ones who stayed behind
began to talk about their kids and their successes.  The first guy says: I am very proud of my son, he is my pride and joy. He started working at a very
successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied Economics and Business Administration soon he was promoted and began to climb the corporate ladder becoming the General Manager and now he is the president of the company. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes Benz for his birthday.

The second guy says: Damn, that’s terrific!! My son is also my pride and joy, I am very proud of him. He started working at a traveling agency for a very big airline. He went to flight school to become a pilot and also manage to become a partner in the company where he now owns the majority of the assets. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday.

The third guy says: Well, well, well
congratulations!! My son is also my pride and joy and he is also very rich. He studied in the best
universities and became an Engineer. He started his own construction company and became very successful and a multimillionaire. He also gave away some thing very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday. He built a 30,000 sq ft mansion specially for his friend. The three friends congratulated each other mutually for the successes of theirs sons.

The fourth friend who earlier had gone to restroom returned and asked: What’s going on, what are all the congratulations for? One of the three said: We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons. And then he asked, What about your son?

The fourth man replied: My son is Gay and he makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub.

The three friends said: What a shame that must be, that is horrible, what a disappointment you must feel.

The fourth man replied: No, I am not ashamed. Not
at all. He is my son and I love him just as well, he is my pride and joy. And he is very lucky too.

Did you know that his birthday just passed and the other day he received a beautiful 30,000 sq ft mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line
Mercedes Benz from his three boyfriends?
