I realised I havent blogged for 16 days already. Well, it seemed longer, but in the end only 16 days, chey! This past week has been a really fruitful one, in fact I would even call it the most fruitful one of the ENTIRE year SO FAR. Which is also my reason for blogging today, because I ain't about to let it pass without recording it down. So, next time when I look back, I will know: "HEY THIS HAS BEEN MY MOST FRUITFUL WEEK OF THE YEAR SO FAR". Haha yep.
Anyway, it all started out on monday, 12th May 2008 - Symphony Of Voices 2008. First time performing at the esplanade ever, and yeh, I really really enjoyed myself, which is kinda a surprising since sometimes stage fright prevents me from doing so. T.T How do I overcome stage fright! It's a stupid thing to have, AND I NEED TO BE RID OF IT!! I tried to overcome it by signing up for music fest but in the end I let the whole team down, and we got out after the FIRST ROUND cos I was so nervous i forgot not just a part of the lyrics, but ALL THE LYRICS. UGH. Ahh, back to the point, GUESS WHAT. Like 10 minutes before the concert started ard 3/4 (maybe slightly less) of the choir got jammed in the lift! T.T Yeh well, I think cos' of that experience I will rmb SOV 2008 forever laaaaa! Thank god that we were rescued in time for the concert. PHEW. Ahhh well, I was kinda nervous for the first five minutes of the concert. Yes, cos of stage fright:/ (which i want to GO AWAY sooooo badly!) But gradually I warmed up to the audience and began enjoying myself on stage. And my smile was not forced! It came naturally and was genuine! So yep, even though I know we went sharp for ill married woman, still enjoyed myself, and got rid of the nervousness. I started hearing us, hearing VJ Choir performing, the harmony, and I realised from then on the choir will change, cos some year twos were leaving. And yeh, I know I didn't really get to know most of the year twos but it's still kinda sad cos' time passed so fast. TOO fast. It's only been slightly less than 6 months laaa. And what. I first entered VJ Choir on saturday, 17th November 2007. Yeh. I rmb cos it was one day after my birthday, and I also know it was on ray rin's birthday. And then whoosssssh. Here come 12th May 2008. Hah. Told you it was fast. It seemed like carolling season just yesterday, and boy oh boy, in about the same amount of days, the next carolling season is gna come. And WOW. There and then I will just exclaim " WOW! ONE YEAR HAS PASSED SINCE O LEVELS! THIS HAS GOTTA BE A JOKE!" I bet it'll just seem like tomorrow is the next carolling. T.T Sometimes I get this feeling Im living in a dream. Like I'm stuck in a moment and I can't wake up. Like my life is so surreal. Like my life is a joke. It's a feeling hard to describe, but it comes and goes now and then. Take for example, now is 18th May, but I get the feeling it's still Post O-level hols, cos I feel like it's a trick and life isn't passing THAT fast. Ahh go back to talking about SOV!!! Yeh well, I'll miss the year twos who aren't going for the wales trip, even though I didn't get to know you ppl that well.
Special thanks to Reuben for informing me of the auditions last year. I never thought I would get to VJ ever, what more the VJ Choir, and I wouldn't have if I didn't appeal through choir for the "first three months" so I could -2 off my score.
Anw, tues seemed a short day cos' I woke up late. And reached sch just in time for lit lecture. And then after that I saw a PARTICULAR teacher, in which I shall NOT name even though YOU DONT DESERVE TO BE KEPT ANONYMOUS AFTER YOUR SARCASTIC REMARKS. Ahh well, on from that, the day passed super quickly - rushed PW GPP and reached home - practised piano cos i supposedly had piano lesson in the night, and after I practised for three hours my piano teacher called to say piano lesson was to be postponed to fri. And I was sighing in relief because I didn't feel I was prepared.
Wednesday was another short day cos there was no choir practice. PLUS we got to be let off at 12.45p.m. to watch the girls soccer finals against SAJC. The school spent >$2000 to send us to jalan besar stadium to watch them can! I'm so glad I didn't pon! GOSH it was super exciting. SAJC scored 1st, and I felt the referee was unfair cos he gave a free kick to SAJC over nothing. The girl fell by herself lor, like none of our soccer girls tripped her or what. And then that free kick caused SAJC to lead us by one goal. By end of the second half, our girls still hadn't scored any goal so the score was 1 0, with SAJC leading. But then during the second half, our girls scored through a free kick, so the score came to be 1 1!! And then second half ended with a draw. So there had to be the golden goal, in which no team scored. Finally for penalty shootouts, our girls WON 6 5!!! hahahahhaha. I was like screaming for joy laaaaa. I was so nervous. For every ball they kicked, I was afraid it wouldn't get in. For every ball SAJC kicked, I was praying so hard for Joan to save it. And finally on the 6th ball SHE DID. Thank god! LOL. I was on the SAJC side when VJC won, so I was like one of the few screaming for joy on the SAJC side. haha. And some SAJC ppl were staring at me as if I were crazy, like I cared:P
Thursday was a short school day, but after that we were supposed to support the volleyball girls, in which I didn't go lol. Went to run some errands with Kai Xian, Jasmine and Jing Xian before we met those going for SLV (which is sth like class CIP). We went to Khong Hwa Pri Sch to give a talk on internet safety and then we tutored the kids. Hah. Was rather fun cos I realised I could actually tutor! I amazed my own self. Hah, aside for a noisy few, especially superrrrr loud girls, that screamed in my ear until after the whole thing my left year felt like it was bleeding, it wass rather engaging, and fun even. Time passed quite fast!
Fri was the last week day of the week, and it was also CHEM SPA day. Was fun to do QA especially after you studied all the cations and stuffs and knew what to expect and what not to, and it was a breeze. :)
Spent saturday and today studying mainly. Yep. It was the studying that made this wk fruitful cos' since the start of sch I havent been sitting down properly and studying.
Ahh super tired. Shld go slp. Tmr got piano lesson first thing in the morning, after which heading to my cousins' house to study, and catch a movie with them!
