toes in the sand

Please excuse my rambling henceforth. I am in SS mode, and this will probably destroy your flimsy excuse for blog-surfing if you so much as try to decipher what I'm going to type (unless you've already studied of course. Then it wouldn't make much of a difference to you :D)

Read: Cheryl needs a place to type down what she's memorized lest she dies from paranoia.

big fluffy wings

Poor PC, went back to servicing D:
I'm a bad, bad owner. *does reflection in a corner*
But yah, I'm prolly gonna abuse it again when it comes back to me xD xD xD

Humongous rain today. I'm soooo happy I was driven to school! Was almost completely dry, only got a lil wet when I got out of the car. But our classroom became a laundry shop. And there were umbrellas on sale too!! Aefy's shoes were hung on the window. Ms Tan looked like she could grab his socks (hanging limp and digusting on the Teacher's Table) and smack him across the face with them when she came in during SS.

SHOCKING NEWS TODAY CAN. Mommy never even hint/foreshadow!!! Daddy Lyn was upset she (he?) is not Number One in Mommy Lisin's heart anymore. HAHAHHA. But yeah, we also know Mommy still struggling. JIAYOU LISIN^^ 要努力地忘掉以前的事!! Daughter's Approval Stamp is ready le, and I think he's nice^^ (read: Daughter almost approve le;P I think he's good for you HEHE) AHHAHA, and damn funny can, when Lyn, Val and I were stalking you and KT today, and he kept turning around uneasily to see us peeking at you guys from behind a pillar xD xD Couple-stalkerism is quite FUN!! So sweet! AHHHHH! Reduced Lyn, Val and I to three giggling idiots!

Cinyi has her own demons to conquer huh.. 你也要加油!! 如果遇到困难,要记得跟你的朋友说哦! 要坚强,坚强!!! :D :D :D :D


Mmmm, I'm quite sad my seniors are leaving le.. IM OLD!! No more Wacky Kai Hwee, no more Crazy Mei Xian, no more LITTLE Si Min, no more CHIO Jye Huey (omg I'm just being lame here), no more PRO YOYO, no more refined Pan Hua, no more INSANE Miao Ting! T__________T

Although, Grad Day was a tad boring. Benjamin took half an hour to find a blazer his siz, HAHA. The video dedications were nice though! I wonder if our class can come up with anything like that next year =\

Had Maths after that. Mr Lim was being quirky and funny again! Chatted with Brenda, kidnapped Chub when Li Sin wasn't looking xD Had unhealthy dosage of Coke!! Brenda said teeth could turn black! (Kat: 那个,那个,那个!)


(Real) Mom went back to Taiwan today. A few more days and I have to board a plane le T_T damnnn. Airplanes are not my thing. HHAHAHA my poor sister is gonna be ALONE for five days cause my little aunt and dad are flying back too. My older aunt was told to look after her.

Aunt: YESSS!! Finally!! A toy to play with!!

canary, canary. sing sweet.

MR CHAN'S CAR IS SO SO SO SO SO SOOOOO ADORABLE WITH ALL SEVEN DWARFS STARING AT ME FROM THE REAR WINDOW OF THE DARK BLUE CAR IN ALL THEIR HAPPY/SAD/GROUCHY/SLEEPY GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**gaga moment**

Ok.

Have finished all aspects of Holiday Homework! I'm so incredibly proud of myself and so incredibly big-headed in front of friends (read: Valerie). AWESOME.

Went to pester Wei Ting in the morning, during the AP slot. I MISS HER WIT D: D: D:
She just recovered from chicken pox, and is quite sensitive about her face apparently.
Ting: WAAAAH. Stop looking at me, you freaks!
Us: Ah.. Okay.
Ting: I mean, walao, why is it that everyone's complexion is suddenly so good huh. It's like you all went for mass-facials!
Us: Ah.. Okay.
Ting: *grumble*
Benjamin walks into class at this point, looking sad
Ting: OHMYGOD BEN!
Benjamin walks out of class
Ting: I wanted to say he was the only one I could rely on when the whole world has smoother complexion but I guess he doesn't want to hear it.


PE was great ok, I could spar with Leonard The Weird (who just mass-smsed a message saying "THIS IS MY NEW NUMBER" when I had the number stored in my handphone a long long time ago) in Badminton! BWAHAHAHAH. I rendered him helpless in badminton many many many times!!!! (and likewise actually, but who's counting?)

Ate all of Val's honey stars during recess. I was sure she was mentally giving me the eyeroll. Chinese was boring, I was dreaming in class. Physics was worse! Mr Lim was talking about thermometers and I was thinking about going to sleep BUT THE REST OF THE CLASS WAS COPYING DOWN NOTES! Stress ok!!! Of course have to copy down notes also. Copy first, digest later...

Mr Tan, the awesome person that he is, gave us lunch extension! Wahahaha. And released us earlier also. Damn nice. Wish Mr LB can read this postno i dont.

Went to IT room 3 to tutor the tutee, but didn't get much tutoring done cause Charis and Jinyan have a very, very good, strong and loud voice boxes!! Damn high. Have never seen them like that. NEVER.

Like what Miss Kong said, "Sounds like someone is raping you guys!"

ALSO: under the influence of Jinyan, I stepped into the washroom without shoes!!! (again, Charis was screaming her head off)


SO. First day of school was FUNNNNNN.ithink.
Mommy Lisin was a great counsillor and friend. I LOVE MY MOMMY TO BIIIITS!! ♥♥♥♥♥


Okay I updated my blog.
Hope you had fun reading ^^
