hey all! haha... got this from my fren's blog...cos she took up lit, and this is what she wrote about the most wonderful and amazing class in the world!! (aka a02. duh.) :
"lit lect today was most entertaining. prob the most entertaining lecture i've attended this whole year. lulu's class was so funny.. whole life cheering and doing 'whatever' or 'you rock' (plus hand actions). haha."
haha...you guys should really go be comedians...glad that the a02 spirit is still very much alive and vibrant!!!! counting down the days to when i can see you all!!!!!!!!!!
love, love, love!!
Torn between 2 lovers. Haha.
Hey guys. Have to tell you this: It may seem like I spend tonnes of time hanging out with the canoeists, and not joining you guys during break times and lunch periods. Haha, well, it’s true, I do. But you guys need to know that every single moment I spend with the girls, I never fail to keep 05a02 in my heart and in my mind. I’m always reminded of how we laugh loudly together at the canteen. I’m always reminded of how each one of you look when you smile. And I never never ever forget. Sometimes, I feel like I’m torn between two “lovers”. Haha. But I’ll always feel the a02 spirit with me, heck, it’s buried deep inside of me. It’s always all around me. And I’ll spread it to everyone I know.
LIYANA>> BTW I DON LIKE TO LEAVE MY NAME BEHIND
okay before i forget hi im steph.

LUV YA LOTS PPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
muacks muacks muacks.
PPLE pls leave ur name! though sometimes we can guess but ya. i wan to avoid being called blur n dumb by sum unknown smarty-pants RJ gal.
I was talking to one of my friends and the conversation went somewhat like that:
"Omg my class was super dupah sweet today. We got together when no one else was, we danced in the middle of the canteen and it never felt like anything so sweet"
The reply? "OMG ARE YOU ALL CRAZY!? DANCING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CANTEEN SOMEMORE!?"
So sad. Science people. Yes perhaps. But sometimes we really wonder, if we're posted to the new class, will they be able to take us? Will we be able to take them? Like what cass pointed out. Those were ARTS people. This is the reason why A02 is distinct, special, and one of a kind. A02 is the only place that can take us, each in our own special ways.
I think today was one of the most special days in orientation (not cause there was food. delicious ones too for that matter), but rather we proved to be what we stood for, what we said so much here. Tomorrow we'll be each separated to your classes, but thats not the end of more orientation days. Everyday could be like today. =D
damnit. why does blogger always delete all my posts?!?! argh!! i'm typing this out allll over again!
anyway, here's a report on my first day in rj with my class for the next two horrifying years! my class has about only 17 people, (which is so pathetically small! sob sob) of whom three are guys, and of whom none are shuai..haha!
my civics teacher is this lean indian man with greasy hair and bulging eyeballs.
he's the fierce, no-nonsense type..sigh.
I was really captivated by his massive eyeballs, couldnt stop staring at them the whole of civics lesson...haha!
my geo teacher is miss helen ting's ex student, and she's a middle-aged cheery woman..
haha and i must say the chinese idiom "qing cu yu lan" really applies to them.
miss ting's student doesnt mumble to herself, and her teaching is quite good.
i actually understood a physical geog lesson FOR ONCE EH!!!
that is like... a record in the history of my lost-during-geog-lessons days.
not bad ah! dont you think it's a commendable achievement, shu heng! haha..
oh, we played Taboo during GP too. haha.. i miss that game with miss ong!
anyway the RJ version of Taboo is so different and excruciatingly slow.
Remember how christine used to get all red and hop about and scream during the game?
well the RJ people sit in a very civilized manner, and speak very calmly too.
E.g. my guy classmate was saying, "Ah...you go to a place...in Singapore...but doesn't have to be in Singapore..and you sit down under a shade and you consume perishables from a basket..." The answer was "picnic" la...and by the time he finished speaking, our one minute was over.
(I'm just exaggerating la, but you get my drift..!)
WEll, that was quite an unfunny game of Taboo.
But overall, the class is quite nice la, like i can talk to the other girls and stuff,
but...the silence during lessons is just deafening.
I was sitting there during civics, listening the the whirl of the fans
and the utter lack of human noise was so unnatural and terrifying.
it was practically killing my ears, no kidding!!!
like, cos i'm so used to the buzz of a02..and nobody, i repeat, nobody, speaks up during lessons at all!
like, they dont even say, "ya right!" or "haha!" and it was so quiet, I just couldnt stand it (that's why I was sitting down)
and at that moment, I really missed the dumb comments that adrian, sheng and basically everybody else always makes during tutorials and all the time.. siGhHh.
And this is a class that has been together for three months...
There are only three newcomers, to the class, including me, and imagine!!! They are all still so quiet!
everytime a teacher today asked me what school I was from, I said, "NJ... ROCKS ah!!"
haha...they all had a startled look on their faces. wahaha!
anyway, really missed you all loads!! especially when linghui said you all won the best class award.. haha.
hope you all remain in the same class!!
continue wreaking havoc in NJ ya!!
see you all this friday!!!!
love love love and more love!!
A02 spirit. as ever and ever!
ahahaha! i love 05A02. jus a short entry now! my energy is totally sapped by orientation2, mass dance, og outings/meetings, cheering/shouting, reminiscing, crying, smiling, thinking bahh bahh! first and foremost, to yulun who only came to njc for one day and fell in lurve with it, im sure it's because of...the spirit of 05A02!!! hey guyss, we didnt win best class for orientation 1, but we did it! in orientation 2. how wonderful! this further emphasize that we dont have to be physically together to feel one another. we're spiritually attached already! that bond is stronger that any physical bond la! it's jus like how God loves us! when one person jus shout A02, everyone A02-ian come running and cheering our ba-gua cheer. that's DAMN enthu lar! i shall proclaim 05A02 as the best class in nj history. forever and ever. to brynner, sheng and cassandra, we miss you guys a hell LOT! come back often to visit ok? (as promised!) i love all people in 05A02. even thou i may seem anti-social at times, but jus smile at me k? and i'll return that smile. 05A02 is so valuable to me. next to nothing. and with every ending comes a new beginning. make the best out of everything ya? that's how LIFE should be lived! (:
linghui aka beng ahh!!!!
p/s: class outing someday soon ya? we needa eat the hamper food. yummy Gummy! ha!
When I read Yux's and Kinky's posts I cried! (I'm super surprised, by the way.) Today's been AWESOME. I don't think I need to describe it, all of you felt the old DYNAMIC A02 spirit burst into flames (IGNIS!) and maniacal marijuana-high laughter as we got together and spazzed around in orientation. Just like the old times. For those of you who were unable to be with us physically, we really really miss y'all ;_; But you guys remember! You guys remember our golden times, how we were, 05A02 in all its GLORY. Karen'd like to invite everyone to fling yourself far back into those memories and SMILE. (Sorry, can't really be funny now. Mass dance quite absorbed me energy, and I'm so worried about our new classes X(. )
I really want a petition. A petition's the best thing we can do, and we'll be needing all the support we can garner. Can SOMEONE pull some strings? Eat the principal? I think I'm desperate already ;_; I'm not looking forward to 2 years not being united. All of us put in our everything - our efforts, time, bonding technologies etc - to make A02 what it is now. Nothing will be the same again SOB! I don't want to cheer for a new A02 where the people are different...I mean, it just feels like BETRAYAL. And what about our houses? >O Can you guys imagine transferring loyalties? How how how?
Crap. My original plan was to help everybody get their morale uppity. FAILURE!!! oh no. But I cannot imagine the inevitable. And it IS inevitable, I know, I know. So can you guys promise me something? This thing will only work if each and everyone plays their part! Alrighty. THE PLAN: even if the petition falls through, we must proceed with this, PLAN B. Some of you have already heard this. For those who haven't, I know it sounds unfeasible/ridiculous/difficult, but...try?
THE GREAT GRAND MASTER PLAN
1. we infiltrate our new classes and speedily + smoothly integrate, A02 style.
2. we create super-bonded classes, with A02ians being the superglue.
3. we eliminate all traces of anti-socialism. I don't know, make noise, make contact, glue them to chairs until they surrender - ANYTHING you can think of AND execute. Yes, take action, people.
4. we join up all the arts classes to form one MIGHTY FUNKY FAMILY!
5. we blow up the A02 spirit and infect all arts students. Conform, consume, obey. Do a Hitler or something.
6. we make all the science people jealous (this is my favourite part haha! XDDDD)
7. we laugh.
What do you all think? Isn't it plausible? It'll take a lot of work, committment and perserverance, but it'll be WORTH IT! It's the only way I can think of for us to really stay together, and that's if we make friends with everyone, so I'm danged if it's not good enough >_<;; BUT I'M STAYING OPTIMISTIC! Can we try, at least? Eeyer I seem to have been dictating space GOMEN GOMEN!! -_-; take the following quiz! I'd love to know more about my darling fellow A02 members. I promise it's safe and entertaining. Plus, it's deadly accurate and FUNNY AS HELL. You are the rare, the overlooked, yet incredibly useful dodecahedron: the d12. You are a creative, romantic soul. You often act without thinking, but make up for your lack of plans with plenty of heart. You easily solve problems that stump others, but your answers tend to put you into even deeper trouble. You write long, detailed backgrounds for all your characters, and are most likely to dress up as one or get involved in cos-play. You can be silly at times and are easily distracted by your own day dreams, but are at the end of the day you're someone who can be depended on.
woohoo! emmiline is finally here to blog! :)
hey guys! i miss you!! *huggs*
first of all, let me tell you sth abt myself..
i didn't wana be an OGL cos i was afraid that i'd get a really lousy og. but being a councilor means i will have to be one no matter what hahas. my first 3 mnths in nj wasn't a well spent one. being in s7, there were only 4 guys in my class and seriously, they were all CMI (cannot make it). my class was really unenthu abt everything, so yeah, we're qt a dead class. we had only 2 OGLs whom we didn't really interact with. in short, i sorta hated my class xP we sorta bonded for a very short while when the release of results was nearing and had one class outing during the march hols. that was all. after that, some tried to organise outings but it was all talk no action cos most of them didn't response or didn't wana go. my class had the highest turnover rate i suppose. only 9 stayed in nj and 2 of them changed combi. that's why i didn't wana be an OGL..
orientation didn't start well for me. fell sick on the first day and cldn't go to sch the nx day. so i only met you guys on the 3rd day of orientation and i was so scared that i wouldn't be able to impress my og. hahas. thank goodness sheng was the first person i met and 05a02 was sucha welcoming class that i felt right at home with you guys :) really wana thank whoever allocated me to sucha wonderful class :D
im sorry if i haven been talking to you guys like vince, yux, sam or you kai. sometimes i feel like i have so much to say to each and every one of you but i just dunno how to start. i feel qt useless as your OGL. so , as i have stated in my super long sms to some of you, if you feel like talking to someone but dunno who to look for, there's always trusty emmy and her perpetually exceeding phone bills :) if you wana vent your frustration but dunno how, there's always trusty emmy to help you look for a punching bag :) i'll ignore my boyfriend if i have to. hahas. wah. now i feel like 05a02's guardian angel. oh don't think im not as emotional as yux. i also feel like crying when i know that the class will spilt. nj admin is stupid not to keep sucha bonded class together! humph. at least 05a02 will always have a place in my heart so it's nj's loss! hee.
thank you 05a02, for giving me special memories of nj and of the greatest class there'll ever be in nj :) to those of you who left, i'll threaten you with a knife if you don't come back often to visit me or the class. to those in nj, i'll also threaten you with a knife if you dare to forget the names of those who left. im not being silly kay. you guys know how i am so take my words seriously.
I LOVE 05A02!! *muacks*
what can i say?after being an ogl for like 2 days,i realised,truly,how deep and irreplacable this bond will ever be.although i still wanna kill you guys for ponning.haha.
this 3 months have been absolutely fantastic.all the cheering,all the singing,all the dancing,all the loudness,all the enthusiasm,all the sharing of happiness.i've never seen,let alone experience a class or any other organisation group together so quickly and so supergluey.these 3 months have passed by too quickly for us,and i have to say that i would do anything to rewind these 3 months and relive them over and over again.so much has happened.i don't wanna let all this go,i don't wanna walk away from all this telling myself that they'll just remain memories in an effort to stop the tears from coming.i don't wanna let you guys go.i don't wanna box up all the times we spent together and relive them only when we have the chance to.i don't want us to break apart i don't want us to fall apart.i want to always laugh at brynner,i want to laugh at charmaine and jeffery,i wanna dance together,i wanna tease rhoda and karen,i wanna suan ruth,i wanna gossip with beng ah and cassy,i wanna make fun of gummiheng,i wanna do cultural mapping with kurt and sheng.i wanna talk political crap and support liverpool with adrian,i wanna call nat fifi super loud and watch her turn around and call me kiki,i wanna stone and talk cock with steph.i wanna do so many so many things with you guys.i wanna group together and talk rubbish and laugh and laugh and cry together.i wish we could stand together in front og the general office and protest until we get our class together again.
i already miss those times.don't let these memories fade guys.this is forever.
Don't lose your way
With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith hope and glory
Hold to the truthIn your heart
If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
Where clouds roll by
For you and I
Souls in the winds
must learn how to mend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
There is a fountain
Washes our tears
Words are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come
Home to stay
If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
Where clouds roll by
For you and I
When we are out there
In the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark
We'll feel the light
Warm our hearts
If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
As souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I
i'll miss you guys k. :c
I'll be there for you:)
Hey guys, this is Yux part 2. Oh wells, I'm supposed to be studying for lit papers but was just listening to some songs and I just wanna share:) Okay here's something from my lit text Measure for Measure (if you're interested to read. hehe.) : Look, the unfolding star calls up the shepherd. Put not yourself into amazement how these things should be: all difficulties are but easy when they are known.
I know it's tough, but let's not be sad. We'll get through this, together.
Oh and here's the lyrics of a song that really touched me:
If my life could be all my life should be
I would learn to trust God at every turn
I would hear His words
And my heart would surrender then
Truly depend on him
I'd go without knowing
Do without doubting
Face without fearing
Any road in front of me
I'd give without glory
Love without limits
Go without knowing
Wherever He may lead
I don't know whether this is applicable to each and everyone of you...just wanna tell you guys to stay strong and look ahead. Memories are happy things (most of the time anyway!) :) He'll be there for you, Vince will be there for you, so will Sam, Emm, Youkai and me! You'll always be the most perfect and bonded class ever, distance ain't gonna change that. Sure, people drift apart but keeping these memories and these people alive, even in small little ways, that's what counts.
Always loving 05A02,
i love 05a02
i seriously think that all our posts added together can make the hardest-hearted person in the world cry. we should consider publishing this blog in NJC website as a petition to stay together as a class. better still, lets write a petition.
i really love 05a02. really. i love NJ, but honestly, life without a02 just kills the spark of NJ. so what am i doing now? ans: i'm praying for a miracle that the NJ admin screw up and land me back into a02. oh please...please...
i miss u all. now i realised why orientation 1 was fun...because i was with a02. and that is all that matters.
love, RUTH...from 05a02.always.
"Say Goodbye" by S Club 7
In the years to come
Will you think about these moments that we shared
In the years to come
Are you gonna think it over
And how we lived each day with no regrets
Nothing lasts forever though we want it to
The road ahead holds different dreams for me and you
Sometimes goodbye, though it hurts in your heart
Is the only way for destiny
Sometimes goodbye, though it hurts
Is the only way now for you and me
Though its the hardest thing to say
I'll miss your love in every way
So say goodbye
But don't you cry
'Coz true love never dies
dear a02..lets treasure the memories but move on, and "dont you cry, cos true love never dies..." i believe our friendships will never end, and the bonds will never be broken...so dont be sad, because our separation is NOT the end. a02 will always be a02. cheers!
A02, you are the very best.
adrian here. just wanna say thankew too all those 22 people in the class . I think you all rock a lot lah. everyday in school was fun. Actually NJ wasnt where i wanted to come, but my results sucked too much so i got in here (yeah i dont really work very hard).
I remember the first day i sat in, i was horrified. The people here werent exactly like that in my secondary school. My sec sch boys run around swearing at the top of their voices, we do the dumbest thing together, and fun was part of our lives. I thought i was going to turn mugger here, and lose all my joy.
I remember the first day i sat, talking to no one but kurt. Well it felt kinda hellish cause i din really get along well with him in Sec 3. I just sat and wondered when my 3 mths will end.
Now that the first days all gone, i sit by the computer and wished i were back to my first day. if given another chance, ild live my 3 months in a more fulfilling manner. Some things arent really appreciated till lost. Now, that we've lost the chance to be together physically, i realise how precious these 3 mths were. This time round, the chance to stick together in our hearts shall be taken seriously. I wont want to look back again with regret, wishing i had been at the start of the journey all over again. For the rest, im sure you guys share the same feeling.
Again a thank you for all that you all have given me. You guys have taught me that mugging and fun can go hand-in-hand. You guys have shown that JC life is really, the highlight of my life. And you guys have shown me, what it really means, to be home outside home.
Those not in NJ, please visit us often! Those already in NJ, dont forget us. and neither will i.
BOO! brynner is here!
hey hey!!! im posting!!! like 05a02 is beyond description!!! no words can describe how great this class is!!! like coming into nj, i wouldnt have expected this... so its really amazing... well guess wad? i nearly put vj as first choice at first!!! whao... its really amazing... i may not express it, but leaving is quite painful... like a part of u is gone, taken!!! but we have to move on!!! all of us are great individuals and we will excel in the future!!! ( this includes OGLs!) rock on!!!
crying. stop. tears are precious.
as i read everyone's entry.
i cry and cry.
like a stupid fool.
somehow, i wish God didnt give us a chance to meet.
but upon serious consideration, i'd rather he had!
cos in my life...seriously, i never thought i'd meet such amazing people.
we all came, with the knowledge of the possibility of being spilt up.
but that doesnt stop us from opening our hearts to each and every other person in A02.
i think that's wad sets us apart from others.
everyone, listen up!
i think we gotta stop being in the sad stage.
A02 will never spilt. in our hearts, we are one and one. always and will be.
so wad if we're all over the place? a01 a03? it doesnt matter.
it doesnt even matter if you're nt in njc.
it's d bond that hold us all so close. dere'll never b an A02.
we're special. one and only. irreplaceable.
as long as everyone feels the same...the A02 spirit will never die.
meet up regularly, keep the spirit forever shining yar?
I LURVE A02!!!!
Perfect happens only once..
it's me Yux! Before I begin, I would like to tell you guys some secrets. One, I was not very enthu about being an OGL in the beginning (like before before being an Ignis/Destefano OGL that is). Second, I almost didn't go for the interview. Third, I was hoping I didn't get an arts class for my og. Can you guys believe it! But let me explain why I didn't want an arts class...cos I wanted a change in environment. Like, what was I thinking! *shakes head*
Why am I telling you guys these? I've come to believe that nothing happens by chance or coincidence, that everything happens for the most perfect reason, in ways you couldn't imagine. God didn't give me what I wanted, but He gave me something far greater and far more beautiful than all I could ever ask for. And I don't know what would have happen if on that day, I had chosen not to go for the interview. I don't know what would have happen if the people doing the og allocation had given me some other og. I would have missed out on the bestest thing that has happened to me in this entire year so far:)
Actually I don't know what to say when so many things have been already been said. I don't know how to express my happiness or sadness, when I think words are insufficient to describe a most emotional experience. But I have so many many things I would like to say to each and everyone of you, I just don't know how. If you could see my look now, that look would be enough to tell you how much I treasure the 22 of you. (Speaking of 22, I somehow think it's so special that my jersey no. is 22 and there's 22 of you! Right.)
You know now, if I close my eyes, I can actually see your class...coming down to the canteen, going to lectures, sitting at the grandstand, standing at the parade square and I can picture in my head how each of you look like in your own individual ways. I can see all of you waving and saying "Hi Yux!" in those kind of cheerful tone that never fails to brighten up my day:)
I really feel like crying. I can't help it. The school will never be the same without the same people. At least for me, it wouldn't. And your heart has the place for that one thing only and nothing else. So it will be the same for me. I'll reserve a place in my heart carved 05A02, and you will all enter, and never leave. I know it sounds sappy, I know. ..
I've never experieced a perfect something, ever, in my life. Maybe once or twice, there were those mini-perfect moments. Just a split-minute kind of feeling. But when I met you guys, I think that's changed. Maybe I don't know you all THAT well, that's why I think you're all perfect. Haha. But I've never met a class as united and as enthusiastic as 05A02. And I don't think I ever will. You guys are perfect. Really.
And perfection like this, happens only once. Certain moments come and go. You can never get the same situation, with the same people, and the same place, at the same time, with the same state of mind. So I can never get this kind of perfection again. But I don't mind, cos this once is enough for me:)
I want to say thank you. Thank you, 05A02. Thank you for letting me know what perfect is all about. It's not about having no faults at all. It's when you look at each other and know there's no other place you wanna be with anyone else. Thank you for giving me these wonderful memories. Thank you:) I don't regret one bit being an ogl, because of you.
It's hard to say goodbye. It hurts when things have to change. But sometimes, goodbye is the only way for destiny.
This shall be part one of Yux's blogging. Haha..I can't take this already...feel so sad..my head's hurting and I have so much more to say....but until then, I hold 05A02 here. *points to heart*
IM TRYING TO FORCE THIS SHIT INTO MY LIFE NOW.
Waking up alone
In a room that still reminds me
My heart has got to learn to forget
Starting on my own
With every breath I'm getting stronger
This is not the time for regret
Cause I don't need to hang on to heartbreak
When there's so much of life left to live
for the 2nd time i cried for a02.
this time uncontrollable.
in the toilet.
wat a loser.
but i don mind.
God Bless all.
i love a02...cos i've never laughed so hard and so much everyday in my life, despite stupid adrian always saying i look very du lan, but ya... haha. i'm missing you all! so how was your first day of orientation, pple?!?! Mine wasnt that great. I ponned orientation halfway. Tomorrow we have war games (groan) and then we are going to do CIP (*screams in terror*)...i must say that is a really exciting way to end an orientation...haha.
and liyana, send me the pics!!! and chiobus and yandaos, pls tell me your timetable for next week cos i wanna come back one day next week so that you all can update me on the latest gossip and the new cute guys (if there are any!) and I must say that there are yandaos galore in RJ muahaha...very very tired, gonna sleep now. miss u allll!!!!!!!!!
As I am writing this, I feel so many things for so many people. Never have I been so open and loving to such a wonderful bunch of people who also have the immeasurable capacity to love back. And I know I will not be staying in this class anymore. So I’m gonna miss you guys even more.
Everyday I come to sch, and I look forward to seeing my class gather at the grandstand, while I am always stuck at the bball court, perspiring like a pig during morning trainings. You know, even though we may have our differences, I just thank god every single day that he sent me such beautiful angels to (yup, every single one of you in 05a02) watch over me.
And even though I’m always training with the canoeists, I’ll never never ever forget the class because you guys were the very first people I have had the honour of meeting in this mugger school. My experience in NJC has been indescribable because 05a02. Orientation. Talentime. Cheering. Gosh, leaving u guys is like breaking up with a boyfriend. A part of me is being taken away when I leave because u guys mean so very much to me.
To Brynner and Sheng, my brothers. I’m missing you guys already. NJ is never the same without the both of you with me to crap with.
To Lulu. You know, I never fail to smile to myself when I see His Majesty and Quite Good around in school. You made a difference to my life babe.
I can’t believe I’m crying when I’m typing all these words out.
Thank you 05a02. I love you so very much.
Pretty much sums up what happened to me until you guys came into my life. Rest assured this poem posting will not be occuring on a regular basis...it is just that I have this distinct flair for melodrama which I am attempting to tamper down. 05A02 was the best thing that happened to me. I was pulled out of my shell when I stepped into NJC, and you people are responsible for that. Like I told Karen, our class is like one glorious tapestry depicting a marvelous scene of light, of beauty and of hope, each creative individual is represented by different coloured threads, interwoven into each other in harmonious accordance, just as our lives are entwined with each others. Thank you 05a02 and the ogls for being who you are. ~Rhoda
Flame burns anew
Withered no more
I was revived
Brought from the very depths
Of depression and nothingness
I had been restrained
I had been bound
The tears I wept were in vain
The hope I long sought for
Vanished like water into the dust
The light I desired was swallowed
As the darkness of the night
Enveloped the sunset
But when the light I once beheld came
My head lifted with hope
My eyes lit with joy
A sweet song burst forth
And I lived again

hahah i will miss u guys k? hope i will be back! but in any case. don dwell over it too much ya. life still moves on. u tink abt it. if not now then 2 yrs time also will separte rite. hahah not tt i don hav feeling for u guys k? but ya jus wannana look on the bright side of things.
so i got 2 stuff to share wif ur before the new phrase in my life starts again. OR MAYBE NOT! hahah pray!
1. this wonderful song which lulu brought back to my mind. felt tt the lyrics was reali gd.
Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.
So make the best of this testand don't ask why.
It's not a questionbut a lesson learned in time.
It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
So take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth,
it was worth all the while.
It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
2. this scripture reading. for non believes jus bear wif me ya. i was reading monday's daily bread and it had this to say.
27Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel 28without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved–and that by God. 29For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, 30since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
yup. so maybe after this whole round of nonsense i will stil end up at nj hahah.
even if i don its ok ya. :)
always lovin 05a02 :)
shed no tears pple!
IT'S MY TURN!
this message is from 886.
disclaimer: this message is not from 886. not for the logical-and-offended; for the logical-and-secure-minded, and definitely for the christine-and-ruth-hearted. do not sue, you're not going to get any dosh.
HAHA i finally made it to our blog! was delayed in art cause mista lee insisted on being a dictator and monopolising all net space. and i write in small fonts because i am evil and lazy.
right. now i will proclaim my loyalties to 05ao2 hurrahhh!!!
top five reasons why i'll never regret coming to NJ (so cheesy):
-orientation day number one: got to know everyone and was already being mad and loud with you guys by midday. that has never, i repeat, never happened before. really snug sense of belonging <3
-laughter. school has never been more enjoyable being surrounded by sooo many people and with noise, chaos and gossip flying everywhere and i mean everywhere. the funny thing is, most of it seemed to have been generated by me. um.
-you all! *huggles* you guys have been most spontaneous, brilliant, accepting, exciting, unpredictable, illogical and totally+undeniably+positively CRACKHEADED. i heart you all, no matter how silly you all look in that og photo over there haha!
-respect. between us in our soooper class and from others who look on in envy and wish and wish that they could be part of our happening and enthu ignis class nya nya nya! I'm so glaaaad to be a part of a02, and proud that we are all recognised as the elite madcappers. good impressions made on seniors are a definite plus too, eh, 38th council members? *nudge nudge*
-cause even though i'm printing in retarded non-caps none of you will flame me or think i'm weird! right, you guys?
thank you all for being family and sitting through all those booooring lessons yet making excellent use of your lovely loud voices. you're all spices and cotton candy to me :DDD if you think i'm retarded, ignore me, don't tell me, and don't hurt me. thank you for your attention.
it's (not) the end
hey all. i just spent the last day with you all as part of 05a02. i didn't really get the chance so i just wanna say thank you all for making nj life one of the best ten weeks i've ever experienced. i've never seen so much unity and enthusiasm from such a small group of people before. you guys are the best!
i wish i could spend the next two years of life with you, and i'm pretty sure if i hadn't decided on becoming a writer/journalist ten years ago, i would have. thanks for being so funky!
keep in touch, and spread the a02 spirit wherever you go!
a02 will never come to an enD!
OMG! i just heard from my friend that the posting is gonna be out on tuesday! *FREAKS OUT* okay whatever the case may be, i'm still going to declare my love for a02:
throughout my entire life, i've never been in such a great class like a02. i noe it sounds cliche. but it really comes from the bottom of my heart. all of u are so genuine, so enthusiastic and u guys are my driving force to wake up and go to school every day. njc will never be the same without a02. though i know that partings are inevitable, but let's not wallow in depression that a02 is coming to an end okays? because it's not! we'll spread the a02 spirit all over nj, if not all over singapore! cass will spread it to rj, brynner to sa, so on and so forth! get my drift yah? i don't believe all good things must come to an end. because this saying is for pessimists. and i know that a02 is probably the most positive and optimistic bunch of ppl! i love u guys with all my heart and remember to always keep the flame of friendship burning kays?! *muacks*
It's NOT over!
Hey hey peeps. We're almost at the end of our first three months together and I just wanna let you guys know how grateful and happy I am to have you little rascals as my og. You people are everything an ogl would ask for plus so much more. Thanks for making orientation such great fun by being such a wonderful bunch. You little thingys have really spruced up my dull and depressing life (hey look I have a book on depression economics...)
Also, I would like to point out that unlike my er... romantic involvements with ruth and company, our relationship is not over! No matter what happens next I'm sure that the special bond that you guys have built and share will last and triumph over distance and time. For those of you who may not be joining us on wednesday, I wish you all the best in your future endeavours, and I'm sure you'll all do just fine.
Brynner! Sad to know you're leaving but hey, sa's a real good school! At the very least the girls over there don't have to wear their skirts below their knees. In fact I'm pretty sure they go in pretty much the opposite direction. *wink* Maybe you can bring a sa girl back some day and show them how a skirt's supposed to be worn. Heheh. Excuse me while I mop up my saliva here...
Cassandra! Running over to rj I see! Congrats on cutting down travelling time! I'll forever be jealous of you with my daily 50x2 minute bus rides. Oh well, you must run back to nj to visit pityful me ok? Oh ya and please don't get a ri boyfriend! Ri guys are the cmi of the cmi. With the exception of me of course. I rule. *cough*
Natalie! Much respect I have for you, if only more of us were as sure as to what we want as you! How many would choose to go to a poly given the choice of any of the top jcs? May you succeed in the path you've chosen which I'm sure you will. Anyway, ngee ann is so near so be sure to drop by and visit often!
To those appealing, good luck alrighty? Hope that you'll all be able to make it back.
And to everyone, every single one of you, 05a02 just wouldn't quite be the same without any of you. Thanks once again for being a wonderful part of my life. I'll try to keep ogling at you peeps.
heyyyyy!!! i just typed an entry but blogger deleted it. it sucks!! anyway...I'm looking at the mirror at my teeth now...I think they are horrendous..wahaha that is so out of point..
anyway pple, pls help me to pray for the track cap that she may recover by tomorrow to run the 4 by 800m relay in the SPH relays, if not I'll have to run, and I so do not want to run!!!! thanks! love u all! haha and i just saw our pics in gmail....haha i love it!!! =)
hey sheng the blog looks great! gd work yeah? (: alright my turn to blog and be sentimental. i must be frank and say i didn't really want to leave my class and join AO2. i mean must be UNDERSTANDING okay. i felt really uncomfortable on the first day. but as the days went by i realized maybe it's by God's grace i was transferred over because i AO2 is the bestest, most united class ever! even though we're all different people with different backgrounds we all seem to click. i have people from other classes coming n telling me "i hope i get into your class" - but hey, A02 is A02 because of who we are. so after mon, if we get reshuffled- which might be inevitable- keep the A02 spirit alive alright.

Hey !!! It's time for Shermin's touching message !!!
First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to each and everyone of you. Thank you for colouring my life with your enthusiasm, joy and craziness. Thank you for all the good times !!! I love A02!!! We may have only known each other for 3 months, but these past three months have been one of the most eventful (and funniest) times of my life. The A02 bond is so strong, it's so amazing !!! I think A02 has some of the funniest, funkiest, brightest,most logical & illogical people in this universe. Keep it up!!!
Secondly, I want to remind all of you to take the A02 spirit wherever you go. Hopefully, A02 won't split !!! Oh my! The thought of that has activated my tear glands (!!!).
Thirdly, I would recommend that we do not visit any parks anymore coz I have donated enough blood to the mosquitoes that night. haha...
Finally, I would like to request that our photos be posted on this blog, ok! I haven't seen any of our class photos yet!!! Oh ya ... you can host it @ www.photobucket.com .
I love A02!!!

What a cool class! What cool people! I feel so lucky to be here instead of some stoned science class... Of course, it's not going to be this way anymore, but we'll still keep in touch right? Don't moan about getting split up, but instead turn our new classes into fun, exciting, happening places! Then we won't always be looking back and sighing for the past, but facing the future with anticipation of good things to come... But no matter what happens, A02 will always have a special place in my heart - as the class where the chemistry was just right, where its members showed the most love, and where they had the most fun! Rock on!

A02: da best for years to come...
to all dearest A02-ians,
coming to NJC was never a choice i regret.
choosing arts was never a choice i regret.
meeting such wonderful wonderful people like you guys, really brought a whole new meaning to my otherwise, dull and boring 17 years of life. even though people may come and go, but they definitely leave footprints in our hearts forever. that is something no one can deny.
through this 3 short months in NJC, i think A02 has really established ourselves as the most enthu class. it's kind of like anywhere and everywhere you go, you feel so proud just telling others you're from A02!!!
through my 10 years of education, i think A02 has really been one of the most amzing classes i've ever been assigned to. it took us such short time to really bond, and feel for one another. no matter what, this will always be something so precious, something we cherish forever ya? no matter where you might be, remember A02 will always live in your heart and that the A02 spirit never die. it'll never be suppressed, never be gone. it'll always be there, for people to see. :)
you guys have been such fun-loving, cool, funny, hilarious, humorous, cuties, artistic, logical-- and the list goes on...people i've ever met in my whole life. i hope 10, 20 or eons no. of years down the road, we'll always remember one another. always have A02 class outings to update one another abt the interesting little things in our lives ya?
A02 Rawks 4evaaa....
linghui a.k.a benggg ahhh!!!
dont let it end.
as i was walking out of class today, reality suddenly hit me. (*bam!) the reality of everything changing, that everything's not going to be the same anymore. although this reality as been with me since the day i fell in love with this wonderful class, i lulled myself into false believe that the day of separation will never come.
however, it did come.
what will happen to the incessant cheers and screams, songs, observation day....will they just all fade into memories? yeah. i guess so. cause there'll never be another AO2 like the one i fell in love with. its undeniable...its inevitable.
we can choose to brush these beautiful times into memory, choosing not to do anything... but then again, we can also choose to hold on dearly to the bond we have painsakenly fabricated in these 3 months. a02-ians, lets all choose the latter.
keep the a02 fire BURNING! (burn!!!!)
i really hope that as the months pass, the people in 05a02(1st 3 mths) will not just become "hi-bye" friends, but remain as ONE deeply bonded class. this is the best class i have ever been to in my entire life. i will treasure it dearly.
luv luv luv, Ruth.
