It’s been slightly more than 7 years since I’ve graduated from my primary school… Time flies and it feels like just yesterday when I was performing the graduation song on stage with the other P6 choir members and I was tearing. I still remember that was the very last time I sung on stage for a school event.
Now we are all going to be 20 this year… I think what’s most heartening is that the 12 year old classmates I used to know are pretty much the same people even now. The way they behave and talk, it’s really heartwarming I guess. It’s as though these 7 years never really did disappear in a blink of an eye.
It was nice seeing many of my friends doing what they really like and in fact many of them are actually doing really well, pursuing their further education abroad and all. It was also sad, because a part of me wished that I had worked harder during my 6 years in Dunman High. But then again, I think about how sometimes, the things you do in life, it’s not always the results that matters but rather the processes.
Every time I think about my A level combination.. I’ve always wondered if not art, what other subject would I do? To be honest, I really have no idea. I definitely would do Math and Chemistry, Econs was a must for me (due to parents) and the last..?
I never liked History nor Geography, I couldn’t do both English/Chinese Literature because I knew that I wouldn’t read the books (I like reading things own time own target.. So..) If there was a big regret, I think it was that I told myself I never wanted to do Chinese again.
But then again, my bad results nor my doubt in my subject combi can never change the fact that being with the art people was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life. Staying in school till 11pm, running to the spiral staircase because I thought I saw a ghost (when it was actually my own shadow…), eating pizza and wanton mee all the time.. There were many valuable lessons I learnt along the way. The outcome may not be deemed as good, where I am now is probably what most would shun away from, but there are some things in life that will mean so much more than getting straight A’s..
I’ve always told myself that the mistakes I’ve made in the past probably all do happen for a reason.
When I made wrong relationship choices last time, I was told that it would be more difficult for me to find a boyfriend in the future.. I guess, sometimes, what you really need is someone to see you for who you are than who you were and support you for you can be. If I had gotten the normal results that would have brought me to NUS/NTU/SMU, truth is, I don’t think I would have met my current boyfriend.
So yeah, fate works in wondrous ways and I’m not complaining.
