One more week. Just one more.

20131013-164723.jpg

This is probably going to be the toughest week of the year.

And I’m not just going to be tested and how much brain juice I have for this Month’s O levels.

There are much harder tests than that I think. Like how I’m being put to the test on my discipline and perseverance skills. (And I am extremely lacking in that department)

I just hope time flies as fast as a reaction between potassium and a tub full of Hydrochloric acid.

I hope time shoots by as fast as a nerve impulse transmitted by a receptor along the sensory, relay and motor neurones in a reflex arc.

I’m kidding. I’m not that much of a nerd.

I want to be selfless this week. I don’t want to put my wants first. Because that’s when things always go wrong. I’m not strong enough to do that on my own but I pray that God will give me that

I WILL DO THIS. OKAY!!

I WILL RUN THIS RACE UNTIL THE METABOLIC RATE FROM MY RESPIRATION PROCESSES INCREASES TO THE POINT WHERE THE BLOOD VESSELS UNDER THE SURFACE OF MY SKIN DILATE AND INCREASE IN BLOOD PRESSURE AND MORE WATER, SALTS AND UREA WILL DIFFUSE INTO MY SWEAT GLANDS AND POUR OUT ONTO MY EPIDERMAL LAYER FROM THE SWEAT PORE THROUGH THE SWEAT DUCT AND MORE LATENT HEAT OF VAPORISATION WILL BE LOST.

FIGHTING!

Feather in the wind

I’m a feather in the wind
And fate plays my game
Don’t know where the leaves are blowing
Would I get stuck somewhere?

I’m a feather in the wind
I see the sky so blue above me
I soar through the air
The sun rays give me company

I’m a feather in the wind
Soaring over darkened seas
Oh look here’s a shark
I hope I’m not faltering

I’m a feather in the wind
Not gonna be the one who’s going down
I know the hand that will be catching me
Landing finally safe and sound

Graduation Day!

I never would’ve thought that my final year would be the best year ever for me!

I expected it to be absolute hell, since this year’s the dreaded O level year and all. I thought I’d spend the entire year buried in my room like a hermit crab with absolutely no life at all.

I’m glad I was wrong. I was REALLY wrong!

I made some effort to get out of bed a little earlier today. I woke up to my alarm, said the usual, “OKAY I’ll just sleep for another 5 more minutes!” but I immediately dismissed that thought when it came to me all of a sudden that this would be the very last time I’d have to wake up this early for school.

IT’S THE LAST DAY RACHEL WHAT ARE YOU DOING SLEEPING YOUR SODDING HEAD OFF?! WAKE UP.

I played some emo music on the bus ride to school.

And as I entered the class, my lovely, awesome class, I felt this warmth like I always did every day. I can never fully express how blessed I feel to be in 402. Really! Every time I think about it I feel so lucky being able to chance upon getting placed into class four oh toooo! Everyone is so nice and friendly, laid-back and funny. Yeah we do have popular people but we never have people who are unpopular! If that makes sense. Although we may not be the most crazy/cool/hyper class, I think it’s how everyone sees everyone as equals that makes it feel so much like we belong.

I’ll miss our class a lot. The environment, the fun and the love. I sound so formal now I just realised. 

ANYWAY

I don’t think I’ll ever get to be in a class like that anymore. I remembered there was a point in time today when I just stood at my seat like a dumb-stricken statue for a few minutes, taking in everything. The chatter, the laughter, everyone at their desks writing farewell notes and signing autographs. I wish I’d treasured it more while I could.  

I’ll miss being able to hang out with my friends everyday. I really will. 

I’ll miss seeing these familiar faces everyday.

My last day in school was the best day in school. I never left the school feeling so light-hearted like I did today! 

 

I really like how people say it’s time for the next chapter of your life. This one’s ending really soon. Isn’t that cool? My life’s like some story book! I’ll flip slowly to the next page with anticipation and excitement. Really, REALLY slowly. I’m still enjoying that last sentence:)
