the result of our two to three months of hardwork.
First few rehearsals that made my heart drop down even more.
Went there, practised, panicked, inspected… it all passed by in a flash.
It didn’t even feel like what… 2 to 3 hours had passed?
Then soon we were waiting for our turn with all the other teams. And as time passed, we approached closer and closer to the starting point…
I was trembling like mad, I was afraid, I didn’t want to screw up my reporting in and make the team minus points. And then it all started.
Our performance! 🙂
And thankfully, I didn’t say any wrong words or anything. However during the performance, I kept hearing and seeing screw ups. I was getting demoralised as the performance went on.
After performance ended, we went back and drank everything. It was all so surreal and that few minutes just passed like that -.- Felt like a second. Seriously. Took some pictures 😀
With the team.
AND THE SUPPORTERS THAT CAME DOWN THAT DAY! THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH 🙂
Then everything passed by quickly. It was presentation to top 5.
Congrats CGS/YS Girls/RV Guys though. 4 teams from Bravo Team8 during course got into Top5 😀
I heard “3rd place… River Valley High School Girls”
I WAS INSANELY HAPPY AND I JUMPED UP ON MY SEAT (and apparently I’m the only one) HENCE LOOKING LIKE A RETARD. In my mind all it was “We got into finals, Yixin’s dream came true, the guys are gonna get an award higher” I was really happy. It was all I was hoping for.
And furthermore the guys cheered super loudly. I thought that was because it meant that they are gonna get either 2nd or 1st.
Then I realised no girls stood up. And then they started asking me why I stood up. And I was like “NOT GIRLS MEH???” and they were like “RIVER VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL BOYS LA” Because most of the comments were that the guys’ routine were much better than us and all so, I thought we wouldn’t even be in the Top 5.
I will never forget how the memories swarmed over me during the prize presentation ceremony.
I started thinking about all the effort we put in and so, all those moments I was pissed, stressed, tired. And then I just started tearing. I knew this meant that we’re going to be the first batch to CMI again, and everything we have put in will just vanish in thin air. And then so many people will be disappointed again, and all the blame will be put on us, all the juniors have to clean up our mess.
I didn’t even want to continue listening to the prize presentation. When everyone around me was trying to convince me that there were 2 more prizes to go. I just wanted to dig a hole and hide in it ;(
West District Freestyle Exhibition Drill Champions, River Valley High School Girls!
I couldn’t even believe it. I didn’t even expect to get into Top5 and we ended up district first.
I brought home two trophies hehe.
Anyway, I just want to say,
Thanks for everyone who have played a part in helping or making this possible..
MOST IMPORTANTLY, thanks to the team for bearing my repeats (According to my DEAR PLATOONMATES) “Last one, this is the last one, ok again, this is really the last one.”
And having to sacrifice and commit so much. It’s been hard on you guys 🙂
Thanks Qinping/Huimin/Kayvin for your rings..
Thanks everyone who have supported me and encouraged me throughout the process.
This wouldn’t have been possible without you guys…
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THANK YOU TO JIAWEI JIELING CHENXI JIAWEN for all the help in choreographing!!! I’m sure we’re one of the only batches that did EVERYTHING together. I’m sure this wouldn’t have been possible without you guys, and we will be DEAD without all of you!!!! Thanks for Chenxi‘s epic videos and all her recommendations, Jiawen‘s
PMSrejections and spotting out cool stuff, Jieling’s dancing machine, Jiawei‘s “OI FASTER LA 33 DAYS LEFT ONLY” and her spamming writing on all the book of suggestions and stuff hahaha
And Maams and seniors who came back to help, give suggestions!!! 😀
And so from now, let’s try to enjoy it?
When Maam Peijia asked if my FSD was stessful or enjoyable. The only word that seriously came into my mind was STRESSFUL. Like what she said, your school has won the 1st time, 2nd time, and naturally you would want to win the 3rd time. And yes, it got my mind all boggled up coz of that, and I was super super super tired each day.
But it’s all worth it now. And I’m glad…. very very glad. And here comes another month of stress 🙂
