today is teachers’ day.. how quickly things change

this time, last year, it was our first council performance. how the council would appear like to the cohort was determined by the success of our teachers’ day concert (and council item)

i remember standing at the back of the cc, watching the concert events unravel perfectly and just.. standing there feeling like everything was so surreal, that after all the months of meetings, planning.. dance rehearsals until 8-9pm had finally paid off.

and now, even after stepping down months ago, it has finally sunk in. that this is it. we’ve really stepped down and the next batches will continue our and the past councils’ legacy

everything is always painted in a very lustrous picture. i don’t think anyone really knows, truly, how much effort every single one of us has put in

i will never forget 2010

still remember how it was back then when school would end early but we would still reach home late since we always had council.


and the sky would look like this on rare occasions because usually when we left school the sky would already be dark

i really miss everything


for my 18th birthday, my best friend got me the amazing 88 ULTRA SHIMMER PALETTE shipped all the way from… (ok I have no idea) with priority shipping etc etc!!!!!!! exclamation marks are really necessary to prove HOW CRAZY EXCITING IT IS.

hair is still in a mess, still damp and unbrushed. 2:37pm, half the day is gone


new headphones ^ study playlist for slightly over a week: taylor swift’s last kiss/ john mayer’s live rendition of your body is a wonderland/ adele’s someone like you & don’t you remember

ok time to study

math & chem to cross off the to-do list by today

another friday.. almost gone.

so we have a long break because of presidential elections/off-in-lieu holiday, making the weekend break a total of 4 days now.

have a long list of things to complete over these four days


life seems rather bleak….

there is no one else here. everything is quiet but the silence is comforting.

i am sitting here typing this when i should be at school. at 10:09am i stepped into the general office and asked for a green slip. before leaving, the lady at the general office told me ‘rest well. it helps’ kindness from strangers (or almost strangers) always makes my heart feel a little warmer, a little less heavier

i should be resting perhaps. but i am too awake to be asleep + too much time is wasted sleeping

yesterday was. special. maybe special might not even do justice to how amazing yesterday was.

12 am: gleefully prying open the envelope char mailed me two weeks ago. on the envelope she wrote ‘OPEN ONLY AT 12AM’ in it i found a letter and a cd. played it and in it she included two clips of herself talking – highly entertaining – and a picture slideshow of our 5.5 years of friendship.


in the morning my mom drove off without me in the car, deep in thought. that was special in a really amusing sort of way. what are the odds of that happening.. on your birthday. reached school – surprisingly on time – and rui passed me a paper bag before i went to the middle of the track to meet sherrie. gp lesson was cancelled and the class started singing the happy birthday song, nearly giving me a heart attack. then rui & christina appear beside me carrying two trays/tins of cupcakes, not-really-shouting SURPRISE! the cupcakes taste as amazing as they look


i opened the paper bag and i saw a cat in a ‘cat house’ it is called muffin and it is now on top of my iMac. if you press its back, the head and tail starts moving!!!!!! i love cats (^.^)~ that’s a cat


nearing 4pm, jess pulled me along and claimed ‘we need to discuss grad night. we need to book our table for post prom!!’ and i remember thinking ‘you need to book a table for post prom?!’ jess doesn’t do inconspicuous behaviour very well ha ha but it really made my day <333333 -spammage of <3s- i thought they had forgotten :') sharm's mom baked a beautiful mango cake – my favourite!!!!!!! we took polaroids and they put the polaroids in a photo frame they had bought. i am going to miss them so much next year

i had dinner with b and the day wrapped itself beautifully – almost too perfectly – with me walking back home with my brother, who had apologised earlier ‘sorry i didn’t manage to get your present, i’ll get it next time’ but sneakily gave me a new set of headphones when we reached home. my mom ordered a beautiful cheesecake from blue magnolia. and now my fridge is overflowing with 9 cupcakes. 1 huge mango cake. 1 cheesecake. a ridiculous amount of snacks charleen got for me. and at 11+++pm twink told me she made me muffins. my friends have all planned to stuff me with food this year……


feel like my heart is overflowing with too much love*~*~*~*~*

i fell asleep smiling, feeling very blessed, very lucky, very fortunate.. very very extremely loved

thank you (where 'you' is an expansion of many terms. where terms = all my loved ones who made my day special. sorry too much math haha mathgeek4ever)

spent the whole of yesterday enjoying the company of friends/family. not doing any work. i like this. but now that my self-proclaimed holiday (backed up by the excuse ‘it’s my birthday’) is over, i have an incomplete GP essay due tomorrow. econs graded assignment 2 essays. physics shm tutorial 9 questions. arenes to study. alkenes to be fully committed to memory. nucleophilic substition.. electrophilic substitution… pah

life goes on
