Slightly outdated, but all the busy days are finally over and I finally have some time to blog. My blog stats are falling, it seems like I’m the only one reading my own blog HAHAH
Uploading pictures right now so I’ll prefer to blog about Challenge Quest LOL.
Okay Challenge Quest was on the 27th of October. 3 years ago, it was an extremely horrible day. I even tweeted the day before the competition “3 years ago it was a horrible day, hope it will not be the same this year.”
And the curse happened again. -.- When we reached HQ it was about 1pm, and registration was to close at 2pm. I saw people taking out their ez-link cards, then our Part B didn’t bring her ez-link card. Which was totally CRAP because we asked the Maam, “Maam, if never bring ez-link card, will we minus marks?”
“Of course! 50 points!” was the reply. My heart sank. On the school bus I even asked her “Hey, you got bring ezlink? Oh never ah, nevermind, I don’t think need.”
I felt so horrible, it felt like everything was my fault. I didn’t inform them, I didn’t read the AI properly, I didn’t check properly before we went out. Orienteering the same thing happened (the shit about the compass), and this time it happened once again. Not forgetting FSD when I completely screwed up just because of minor slips.
I myself couldn’t even do 50 pumpings and here I was, giving 50 points away. I didn’t even care about the competition, it felt so horrible. I just felt that we’re going to do so badly for BUC again. Last year I pulled down the BUC, and if we were to minus 50 points now, what are the chances of maintaining a gold again this year?
We asked Sir to ask ANY random platoonmate, senior, or teacher to just rush down, and he kept saying,
NO, LESSONS END AT 2PM.
NO CANNOT, at most you don’t win this competition.
NO CANNOT, you think teachers very free ah?
NO, treat it as a lesson learnt lor.
This is life.
I.FELT.LIKE.KILLING.SIR.SO.BAD 😦 Then I just burst out, all those trainings in the morning for nothing? All those coordination, all those staying back after act just to chiong run, all those muscle aches every weekend. All for freaking..nothing?
Then after so long of calling we managed to get Senior Xiuyun to rush down for the ezlink, then Sir lent an umbrella from a random HCI guy carrying it and ran to Admin Branch to change our penalty points with all our ez-links. He had to run to and fro twice because they needed the ezlink card of all the team members haha. Maam Peijia helped us a lot too, by spamming phone calls to all the seniors. After that Sir was so nice LOL but before I seriously felt like killing him.
And thankfully, everything paid off because we managed to clinch 2nd for girls 🙂 This year got 4 awards, last year only got one lol Especially the skipping component. We screwed up the first jump, then the second jump onwards it was 50 consecutive. SUPER SHOCKING LOL WE HAVE NEVER HIT SUCH A STANDARD BEFORE, at most 30+. First time we jump 50 consecutive with a crying Jiawen LOL. Yes it felt great because it seems like our efforts did pay off 🙂
And congrats to the RV Guys for clinching 2nd in West district too! You guys trained hard too, and thankyou so much for teaching us the skill we much needed for our skipping! RVNCC ALWAYS THE BEST 😀
This was such an amazing… nerve-wrecking competition/experience. But after committing the same mistake thrice, I swear I’ll never commit the same mistake again. NEVER.
//and after the competition we found out that the 50 points wouldn’t affect BUC -__- WHAT THE. But at least, because of all our panicking and shit we managed to get the ezlink card eventually 🙂 And of course, winning the competition was a ++++bonus too 😀
At the temple now,
There’s so much I prayed for. This year, and the next.
After today, I’ll be free from the fatigue I guess. And the only thing left will be NCC chalet…? And I ought to blog about ROD, CIP & Challenge Quest. Anything else…?
Pull through it and I’ll see better days-
The past few days have been filled with nothing but ROD, CIP and loadsa preparation, don’t even have time to mug my Physics and Math that I can’t understand during lesson 😦
But I’m really enjoying every day that passes with my platoonmates because well, anything you do will be fun with awesome company. Especially when Charlie ’11 comes together, its simply more than awesome hahaha.
Took a lot of pictures during the process, will upload all of them after Sunday. And oh Lang Arts free period now that’s why I can blog hahaha, won’t be blogging much this week ohwells don’t even have spare time because I’ve something to keep me occupied every single day.
I hope this week will end quickly so that holidays will finally come and we can get our well-deserved rest. On another note, I hope all the fun and joy we have in this last week of school will never end. 😦
Great job to the Part Bs today, maybe it’s a blessing in disguise afterall that it rained? 5th position is damn good liao lor (ahem compare to us first hahaha) Since I guess you guys did OKAY for theory 🙂 Hehe. Am very very proud of you guys, you guys worked hard~
Attended only 2 hours of lessons today? FTW LOL. Whole day was NCC. Sigh. Was so bored at HQ~ until the prize presentation lololol I remember Gertie & I were worried sick when they haven’t come back LOL. Oh well luckily the tide’s over~
I’m still quite sad about Chinese. ): I know it’s really really common for me to do badly, but I haven’t seen such a score before…
Sigh don’t even know what to pack for school now, shall go to school with an empty bag. Looking less and less forward to school nowadays, just so tired of the horrible routine… getting really tired of RV. It’s really tiring, after exams. I don’t even know why. 😦 So tired of everything, I can’t wait for holidays to come. I don’t feel like going back to school anymore…
