Tomorrow is the last day of the hols! so fast! Heehee ... I can't wait to go back to school to see all of you !!! I hope the canteen will be ready and the mosquitoes will be gone!
Happie Belated Birthday, Christine!!! I'm so sorrie I couldn't be there :( .
anyway. all the best for the CTs! heehee. see all of you REALLY soon !!!
Oh no this blog is dead...I shall revive it a little by giving everyone an update on Christine's birthday lunch at Sakae Sushi.
Brynner and Sheng turned up! We missed them so much.
We were all so nostalgic, reminiscising the times we spent during the first three months, and lamenting the fact that class spirit is no longer there.
Christine's delight in seeing us all was the best part of the day. It means a lot to us to see her happy.
And I really wished everyone made an effort to come, Adrian spent many smses trying to get people to turn up but many didnt.
Why cant you guys just sacrifice a little time off studying for you friend? I know studies are important, but what's the use of scoring well when you place them before you friends? Friends are for life, studies come later. Of course, this is a positive economics statement which some of you would most likely want to dispute.
If that is the case, there is always email, I am always ready for a debate.
I Love original a02, Rhoda

And er, my condo does have barbeque pits, but they're cracked and old and dusty... frankly my condo is in bad shape, so anyone else with average-looking condo please help fill in => if not, then lets go east coast park or smth... if not i very pai seh... =p
YAH MUST COME CLASS OUTING
maybe class spirit isnt there, maybe love is, but one thing is certain, there is a class outing in the hols.
Waiting for someone with a portable pit/condo to help out
What is needed?
Help to prepare food, carry it, shop for it, a little cash, a happy heart, and of course your lovable self.
REMEMBER TO COME IF YOU CAN!!! OR I WILL *Sharpens knife* MAKE YOU MY CHICKEN CUTLET
acknowlegement is the first step to improvement. - President Adrian
Recently, the geographers have been learning about rocks in physical geog class.
When the overlying structure of the rock, especially granite, has been disrupted due to hydrolysis(the feldspar in the rock has been converted to kaolin/clay by rainwater and washed away, leaving behind many pits and holes in the rock) frost shattering occurs when icecrystals form in the little holes of the rock, expanding and contracting, putting pressure on the rock until granular disintegration takes place...the rock is naught but a handful of grains.
Rock = original Ao2 class spirit
Feldspar= People missing. Eg. Brynner, Sheng, Nat, Cassandra, Ruth, Me and Liyana. Charmaine and Erni
Ice Crystals = Other factors such as school work, cca, clique forming...etc
Our class spirit was there because of the beautiful chemistry we had with each other, the combination of people was perfect and during the 1st three months we had almost no worries because everything was so relaxed and leisurely.
Then the education system split us up. The combination of people is not there anymore, important elements in the rock which holds it together are gone. Suddenly, academic life caught up with us and we find ourselves up to the neck with piles of homework, cca snatching away the little free time we have, clique/s forming in ao2 because of certain people...and indifferance becuase no one cares anymore about building class spirit. A cynic like me would say, what for build class spirit since we are only going to be together for 1 and a half years.
Face it, the class spirit can never be retrieved. But what we still have is love.
Like Ruth said, love. We still love each other very much even though we don't see each other. We care for each other, we show concern for one another, such as when someone faces a crisis, he or she is never alone. We show support for each other by cheering each other on...eg during syf, brynner and sheng running for council in sajc...
No my dear Adrian, love dosen't fade. Class spirit may disappear but love will always be there.
Btw, I am a cynical romantic.
The A02 song
A02, you are the very best
A02, you own all the rest
with our, OGLS
youkai, vince and sam, and yux, and emmiline
A02, we love you with our hearts
A02, you rock so very much
We love you
no matter what we will always stay together.
we love A02 with our hearts. not with words.
and we promised to stay together no matter what.
we made a promise.
keep it. and it'll be enough.
read it and keep it in your hearts.
No, no, no
Ao2 isn't halved or anything! Not shouting about your love for your class all the time (which happened a lot in the 1st 3 months =>) doesn't mean you don't! Just know that without you all, i wouldn't know what to do. I don't know what sort of person i would have been. Don't think negative... If you think our class spirit is gone, then do something abt it! Like, go for the chalet outing =D
i read what adrian wrote.and i feel so much.it's true that we promised to love a02.we promised to never let go,to never give up.but it seems now.all those have gone down the drain.adrian's right.what's the point of professing our love for something that's so fragile?if we never intended to maintain that kind of emotions,then what was the point of saying all that?
sure.it might be cos we were on a high once.like kenny said,there are high and lows in the passion.yes.i can see that already.but our class doesn't seem to be going through highs or lows.it seems to be going through the meat shredding machine.it isn't simply because of certain people or events.it seems to be this sense of indifference that we take towards building class spirit,class outings.i admit that i'm guilty of this, taking all this for granted.
but i realise that it's this sense of indifference,taking all this for granted that makes it seem ever worse that we're splitting up.
is it human nature that we cherish only what we have after we lose it?
do you want to go to the extent where we have to lose ao2 before we struggle to find it again?
i don't want too.but it's not a one man show.it cannot be.
i have nothing else to say anymore.goodnight people.
wake up people
i was looking back at the march archives, and i saw all those touching msgs, all those please-give-me-a-bucket tears. and then i look at what we are now, 2 mths after those professed love. half of what we were? or less?
does love fade? or is it a choice?
dont lose something that we tried to hard to keep, thats A02. A02 will only remain as a memory from, if we choose to make it one by forsaking it. forsake not what you fought for. leave not what you had loved. love what you professed to. forever.
