Note: This post contains a hell lot of words cause I want to be able to remember what it felt like on the results day. Some pictures is grabbed from Ee Laine’s Facebook.
Yesterday tasted a lot like eating chocolate (or beer); you pop them in your mouth, melting process begins and you taste the sweetness of it. Then, it turns ugly when you try to swallow it cause that’s when the sweetness is overloaded and turns bitter. Sorry if I make eating chocolate seems like hell; it’s really cause I don’t like eating them. Anyway, I’ll tell you in a bit why I said that.
Reached school at 9 to 10ish and they wouldn’t let us in. That’s how much they love us seniors. (Or probably they just want to organize the results without us freaking out there.)
Went in about 10.30ish. I wanted to be among the first cause I really don’t want to wait in line while others got their results. It makes me more nervous.
Principal went on stage to announce a top-scorer who got straight A+; Erin Chuah, as expected. And, she suddenly said she wanted to announce another 22 students who got straight A’s too.
I was like, “Shit. What if she didn’t mention my name?” Then, I start hearing names like Marc, Yee Ming and etc etc. “My name is not there. Shit. Shit.” I was worrying cause she said a lot of names already. Haha. But she did finally say my name. And I screamed.
Honestly, I didn’t expect to get 8A+. I just wanted straight A’s, meaning no A-. But I would have been happier if I got an A+ in Chemistry. I’m so sorry for disappointing Mrs Lee, my Chemistry teacher.
EST was a nice surprise too, well coming from someone who once got a D for it. And I didn’t realize how badly EST affected the total number of straight A’s student in our school until later. If it hadn’t been EST, we would have a whooping number of 41 students who scored straight A’s. So, I shall consider myself lucky to have scored an A.
Hmm, two A’s away from scoring a straight A+. Oh, well. I’m happy and contented with my results. Really.
Oh, I actually made a pledge too. I’m going to be a vegetarian for half a day on the 1st and 15th of every month.
Gues what? I’m not going to blog about why I felt bitter yesterday. Turns out I got over it already. Haha.
I was planning to celebrate my results with a cocktail drink for myself; whiskey with coke. Mom gave me the green light to drink the Johnny Walker but then, I realized I didn’t have any Coke with me. So, yeah. And I still haven’t decided how I want to celebrate yet, besides with a drink. Any suggestions?
Well, I did go out after the results; Times Square. There was a lot of catching up and talking. I had fun but I would have preferred to have more action; like bowling. I need to brush up on my bowling skill anyway. So, I
want demand for another celebration!
Haha. I’m serious, there’s like a total of 24 of us in Starbucks and only 4 of us bought drinks from them. At least they didn’t chased us away.
And I discovered a new love. Gelato! It’s Italian ice-cream, I love the Strawberry Yogurt flavor (it’s the one in pink) from Gelato Fruity. It’s so sour-ish and heavenly at the same time.
