These past three months have been anything but peaceful...to say the least! I've missed blogging so so much and that unconscious almost nagging voice in my brain telling me to blog has been present since pretty much three months ago when I last blogged but it is finally SUMMER 2012 and I have officially graduated high school!
It's been such a hectic three months and so much has happened that it'd be almost impossible to stuff it all in here. But in simple words: exams, graduation & summer. Right now, it's around 6:00am in Hong Kong...I've been up for 3 hours already and this has not been a not so amusing experience of jet lag - my first in the two years that I've been traveling to and fro England. Now that exams are over, I've finally resumed any resemblance of a social life, and officially, regular blogging. I cannot even stress how relieving it was coming out of that last exam (I cheered, out loud and got weird stares from those in the lower years) and knowing I would never have to do maths ever again - most likely the highlight of my life so far. And then the milestone-ness of the situation kind of sank in and I realized that never again will I ever sit in a classroom of 8 or 9, getting homework and being almost spoon-fed information. Never again am I going to wake up in my room in my boarding house, eat with the same people that I have been for the past 2 years at the school cafeteria. I'm already missing the pretty bad food at the cafeteria - something I never thought was possible.
Strangely enough, because of exams, these 3 months have also been the most relaxing in terms of general worrying about other things. Most probably it's because I knew I had to concentrate on that one thing and just pushed everything else to the side - whatever I did mentally though, it's working. Somehow, I feel like I've grown a lot just in the past 3 months, as much of an overstatement as that seems. Having graduated though, I am now more than fully ready for a LONG summer of just fun, hanging out with friends and general chilling before everyone jets off to different countries and for the first time in our lives, probably find our homes in other countries. It's a strange thing, nostalgia. Sometimes, it's so happy to look back on all past 13 years and think about the memories but at other times, it can be such a bitter experience as well.
Either ways, as you can probably tell by now, this really is just a general 3 month catchup post condensed into however many words. I am definitely back to regular blogging though so for everyone who's' been checking updates regularly - thank you so much for waiting! And for the few stragglers who've come by - enjoy (:
