farewell assembly was on thursday so this means i’ve officially graduated from school (finally) the assembly was alright i guess, it started off with me feeling ‘wow this is it today is really here’ along with the standard nostalgia that entails with these kind of events. and then towards the end it got a little… lacklustre and i thought ‘huh that’s it?’ and then it was over
wasted a few hours of my life in the cc after the hype died down watching gtoh abuse the mic, thinking at some moments that i really should be heading back home to study because amazingly enough i spent 5 hours the previous day watching x factor uk — ella henderson had better win this year — that said x factor uk beats x factor usa hands down — but somehow it didn’t feel like the right time to just leave
on tuesday i stayed in school until around 5:40pm after concluding my very first consultation of the year with my chem tutor who patiently went through 12 MCQs with me. after which i left for tuition and walked out of the side gate alone
as i walked out i crossed the same bridge i have walked across for almost every day for the last 2 plus years and it finally hit me that i would be saying goodbye soon. honestly i think only people who actually stay in potong pasir and students who are part of the saint family would actually come here so after i collect my result slip next year i probably won’t be walking past the same bridge or press the button to enter the side gate for a long time coming
so as i walked past the bridge, the basketball court, past two old men discussing about the prices of new flats, past KFC which i have only ate at once, past ABC shop, past the tau huay shop, i tried my best to remember all the sights (and sounds if there were any) and it made me realise that i really enjoyed my time here. i always claim i hate JC honestly it’s tough but i’m glad i came to SA.
this will always be a place like home
