HALLELUJAH SPM IS OVER!!!!
Yeah, my last paper of English for Science and Technology has finished, which officially ends my five-year long stint as a secondary school student. Hallelujah, I made it through alive! But not without being crazy enough to write a crazy song about my insufferable sufferings as a Form 5 student...
I feel quite strange. This is probably because I just came home at 6.30 pm after sending my auntie to airport and being too tired to go for a barbecue at my friend's house where my friends from school will be partying away about now, and I will probably never be forgiven for this unforgivable sin. *sigh* But I am very tired, and I do feel odd, because I am now out of school.
[Yes, I did eventually decide that I wanted to go but I was just immensely tired ok?]
[Was it an overkill to write 5 pages in my EST essay? My dad was alarmed when I told him I had so much to write about nutrients, I even had to ask for extra paper. There is something called "overdoing it", right? Even in the essay I wrote about eating that "moderation is key", yet I have dug my own grave by injecting too much Biology information...]
This is an end to a phase but the beginning of another. It is a very new phase for me - new challenges, new ways of doing things, new friends and new places. I will soon be able to drive (gah I can't wait!!!), and won't be limited by the fact that I have to go to school. I think I can do so much more for myself and for God this way. I have many things planned to do during my three-month holiday before SPM results come out. I may even be busier than I was before SPM!!
But I must say, it all was a torturous ordeal. But I survived.
Beyond SPM results, I have no idea what I want to do. Medicine or Actuarial Science or English or... Sometimes I cannot sleep at night just thinking about my future. But you know what, I know God has a perfect plan for my life.
"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6
Anyway, among the things I intend to do is to write and record new songs, write a novel, learn to drive (yeaaahh!!), play more tennis and badminton, and possibly learn to play drums. On top of my list will be to redesign this blog and add more content. XD I was also commissioned to write the theme song for the upcoming GFS boot camp, which I cannot attend. *sigh*
Before I forget, I want to thank no one else but God because I did not get sick at all throughout the whole exam. Even though I am supposedly perpetually sick, I did not even sneeze once in the exam hall! That in itself is a miracle. Amen!
[My dad complained that I didn't acknowledge them, so I hereby thank them for their continuous support and pressure on me to keep studying... hehe]
There was also this strange orange-white cat that kept walking into the hall. Even when chased out by invigilators, it still kept coming in. I found out that it was actually the school's resident stray cat, meaning that it has no owner but makes itself comfortable in the school.
In a week's time, I'll be flying back to Kuching. I can't wait. I miss all the Kuching people. But I will miss my many Banting friends too. I won't be seeing them anymore, huh? Besides the occasional movie at Bukit Tinggi or McDonald's eat-out... *sigh* I'm torn between two worlds.
Again I stress, I feel weird. I feel... SPM-less. After so long being stuck in this pivotal and endless world of study-eat-sleep-study-eat-sleep, I find myself as free as a bird. But I'll have fun. I think.
