The Exodus

Just broke camp from CBLC FAC 2014 The Exodus. It's a 4-day camp. I disliked the food wastage during the wet games and it was really disgusting. The station games in school were not really fun. They're just tasks to do and you have to compete with other OGs. The weather was also sweltering, so I was always sticky from running around school. I had more fun during the 3rd and 4th days during the Amazing Race and beach games. But the beach games today at Sentosa's Siloso Beach left me with burn lines on my face and wrist. Note: BURN lines, not tan lines. I have a neck tan line too. It was only a few hours from about 10+ am to 2+pm, and I applied sunblock before the games.

My OGL was Eric (Tan Yan Zhou) and my AOGL was Renee! The seniors were Jeryl, Xiao Wen, Elizabeth (whose nickname was 一粒沙白 lol), Edmund. OG mates were Benjamin, Sarah, Samantha, Fiona, Hui Min, Lan Ruo (who left for China after the 2nd day breakfast due to a family emergency), Eric (Sim Juan), Wen Xin, Huang Qing.

I was the closest to Hui Min and Sarah during the camp, but on the 3rd day when the fun starts, Hui Min fell sick, was vomiting and having diarrhoea, and had to go to the A&E, which meant I had the single room to myself for the last night. The room in Raffles Hall wasn't as stuffy and hot as I expected, but there were lots of mosquitoes :( that only attacked me but not Hui Min who was just right beside me. Argh blame it on my high body temp and forgetting to apply repellant.

I have a good impression of Benjamin, because he was thoughtful and offered to help me carry my 1 litre water bottle in his bag during Amazing Race. Because I brought a pouch instead of a small bag. So I had no bag to contain it (lesson learned). Thanks Benjamin! He also asked me if I'm okay when I was walking the slowest after the beach games when we were going to the Palawan Beach washrooms. Then I told him it was just that my bag was really heavy. Actually, it's also because my clothes were all wet and sandy after the games, so I was carrying my bag on only my right shoulder in an attempt to not dirty my bag. Then I gave up and just carried it properly, haha. Eww salty camp bag.

My skin is feeling tight now. :/

Anyway, NUS totally deserves its nickname as National University of Stairs. It was really tiring to walk from places to places. I had expected my weight to go down 1 kg, because I ran a lot and I didn't eat supper like the rest, except to steal a few fries or snacks to ease the hunger. BUT WHAT THE HECK I THINK I GAINED 1 KG INSTEAD. I just cried/whined over it because it was so unfair that others can eat supper yet stay skinny. T.T Okay feel like crying again. walao.

Upcoming camps are Union Camp and Science Orientation Week. I'm unsure if I want to join those camps because I heard that the Exodus was less tiring and less disgusting than those big camps. Those camps are expected to give us less sleeping time and more disgusting activities during wet games. Oh well, maybe I'll not be able to do wet games, heheheh.

Got into KE7 double room!!

I discovered 2 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer today. I couldn't believe how such an expensive brand of ice cream appeared in my house. I was shocked. I felt so touched, and I actually couldn't bear to even start eating it, which never happens for regular ice cream like Walls.


And just now, Mum just came home, and I asked her when she bought it. She went, "Oh, right. I bought that for daddy because he's too skinny." I felt damn disappointed, you can't even imagine how someone would feel over merely ice cream. I asked her why she didn't buy Häagen-Dazs for me. Then she said something like: Buy for you? It's Mothers' Day, and you didn't even buy for me. I felt damn wronged I started crying. I know I cry over little things. SO WHAT. I usually just eat cheap ice cream, and I could even feel touched over seeing Häagen-Dazs in my house. I was never willing to splurge over my favourite dessert, and I always just buy cheap alternatives. I had to go…

One of the Things I Hate The Most

Today morning, Mummy flew to Penang to for my Ah Ma's wake, so my Er Gu Zhang is staying at my house while she's away, to ensure Daddy won't starve or fall down. Bcos I go to school until quite late.

Oh yeah, lemme digress a bit first. I had my LSM3211 CA1 today, and although I didn't finish studying, I felt that it was so much better than last sem. What's different is that I tried harder to study this time, and yesterday night, I managed to stop myself from watching the latest episodes of 2D1N and 稍息立正我爱你! I know the proper thing to do is to finish studying, but I really did improve from last sem. For that, I need to praise myself, encourage myself, pat myself, because I learned that scolding myself is just going to discourage me. I have been a bad student since secondary school, and I think I've improved the most in this period of time. I am a perfectionist. I am not praising myself, because that's not a good thing. My brain used to turn off every time th…

Help

WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAPPEN?! WHY CAN'T I CONTROL MYSELF BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE? I'm so sorry mummy. You're always so hardworking to raise me, but I never studied hard. Now my lab report is going to be late. Why do I always regret only when it's too late, but I repeat it again and again every time even though I know the consequences? I really hope this is the last time. Do not repeat your mistakes please Huai Tian. I feel so exhausted at my own behaviour and how I always give in to watching shows until I'm right before the deadline. Why am I like that? I even went to visit the counsellor. Why can't I change? I feel so bad for my mum... that she only has one daughter but I turned out like this. Please. I want to pull back my grades back up. PLEASE
