Happy Chinese New Year! :D

So, if you are wondering why I have not been posting in such a long time, it is because school is really busy right now and I have been struggling to keep up. I was going to post yesterday because I wanted to try out my mac (YES, I GOT MY MAC-BOOK! :DDDD). But then I am not really used to it right now. And I always shut it down first before remembering that I have to update my blog. Maybe will try to post later if I have time, using my mac.

Yesterday was a really good day. Raffles gave us a holiday, and I was planning to visit Rulang, But erm...that plan sort of fell through. So I stayed home and caught up on tv shows online. Reunion dinner was good! Had a lot of fun playing with fireworks with cousins <3. They are coming to my place later on in the day to have yet another dinner together. Looking forward to the money and the food!

Okay, let me talk about camp steel now. Before going, I was really upset about missing 2 days of school, but at the same time excited because I knew it would be funner than ATC (which is a real torture, I tell you).It rained throughout the first day, and we couldn't practise orienteering D:. But the second day was really really really fun. My platoon did the High Confidence Challenge Course first, and I went for the wooden log balance beam. It was quite scary when I looked down. But then I kept my head straight and looked forward, and just walked. It was over too quick D: I was looking forward to Rappelling, but due to time constraints, we only managed the dry-run. Sigh. And we also didn't do Motivational Obstacle Course. D; Only paintball was good. Because our platoon was the last to go, we were allowed to finish up the left-over pellets :) I was concentrating more out not getting shot rather than shooting someone else. :p

Made lots of new friends. And added them plus many of the sirs on facebook. Many people stereotype the sirs to be fierce and tough, because they only see that side of them during camp. What they don't realise is that they have a social life too.

I really dont like it when people stereotype others when they have got no idea what sort of lives they lead. Like many people have stereotyped us Rafflesians to be nerdy, arrogant, whatever. But have they actually gotten to know us? Just because there are a handful of us who are really like that, It doesn't mean that we are all. So stop, please just stop.

Now, let me end on a happier note.
Happy Chinese New Year!
