|Your #1 Destination for Music & Reality TV|
25 February 2008
I was horrified by the SMS from Gan this morning:
"Civics today at 8.55am will be at SR6 for those still in A03A. The CSE people and Guojun and Quynh Anh are now in A01C, but Steff is in 1D. Cheryl has transferred to A03B".
I was thinking: What The Hell.
Starting out as the smallest class size within our batch (A03A is 19-strong), I was in fact looking for more intakes after today and didn't even consider the possibility of people leaving our class. But today proved otherwise. While other classes had a significant net gain of new students, we lost 6 people. Cherrie, Cheryl, Steffanie, Qi Wen, Quynh Anh, and Vanessa. GuoJun is trying to appeal to stay with us.
So, the morning totally sucked for me. Mishy, Daveen, Val and I just stared at each other, stunned by the news at the canteen benches. Made a desperate attempt to meet each other as a full class for the last time, and we wondered why everything was so evil to us. Just when I brought my Marks and Spencer Chocs to share with everyone. hmph.
I guess the emo-ness seeped into our Civics lesson, where everyone including the Ex-A03Aers came for our lesson. Mr Sowden was also expressing his shock at our pathetically small class, but I guess nothing much can be changed, due to the fact that those remaining in A03A are those under the Humans Programme, whereas the others weren't.
When it was time for them to go, the atmosphere was just so emotionally-charged, I honestly hated that moment. You could see everyone getting teary (Ok except for some. Boo.) Just when I thought this was such a wonderful class with so different types of people coming together and yet, we were able to establish this chemistry amongst all of us.
Though it has only been a few weeks, but I know I'll miss those left us today. Ok, it sounds as though someone died, but no, I know that this is not the end of new friendships to be forged.
To the people still in A03A, 13 isn't a very bad number. Yes, it's bloody small and that means:
1) It's damn hard to take a quick nap, SMS, or munch something during tutorials.
2) It will be really hilarious to see only 3 PW groups, or as a matter of fact, the prospect of having 3-4 miserable kayaks for our class adventure camp.
3) Our gender ratio is cut! 9 girls, 4 boys.
4) We are definitely the smallest class in our batch, something we should be proud of.
5) It will be super easy to organize class outings and dissaminate information.
09A03A, I love you guys. And I hope they'll do something about it. Nevertheless, it has been hell of a fun 8 weeks with you guys which i'll never forget.
On a sidenote, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Marvin, Jun Chang, and Stuart!
