Jessica here has been sooo bloody caught up with being an EMO kid over the break up that she has COMPLETELY forgotten that SCHOOL reopens in TWO days time!!!!
Excuse me, but I find this rather necessary:
OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Do you know what school means?
School means NO more sleeping till 2pm, NO more enjoying doing nothing at all except lazing around the whole day, school means O LEVELS are coming very very soon.
I wish I had 2 more months of holidays! I could really put them to good use.
Firstly, I’d sign up for either piano or guitar lessons.
Secondly, I’d go for a whole lot of photoshoots coz I have alot of weird themes / ideas coming to me recently.
Thirdly, I think I’d actually… STUDY?!?!
People say the june holidays are supposed to be for us O level students to study, and I PROMISED MYSELF I would study in the later half of the holidays but nooooooooooo.
I didn’t even realize that time passed so fast.
I suppose I can take comfort in saying, “I feel that my june holidays was pretty interesting.”
Truth to be told, it really was quite eventful!
Meet up with friends, shopping and shopping, KBOX and KBOX, lots and lots of FOOOOOOOD, spent quite alot of time with my darling James who is now also known as my ex-boyfriend, events and such.
At least it wasn’t boring~
In fact, it was so eventful that I actually feel 2 or 3 months has passed.
..Ok, I think I’m getting a little contradictory here.
WELL ANYWAY SINCE I ONLY HAVE 2 MORE MISERABLE DAYS TO ENJOY MY HOLIDAYS…
I thought I’d dedicate a post to school, to get the “BACK TO SCHOOL” mood:
So, ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you
10 reasons why I hate school –
1) I hate the way I have to wake up at unearthly hours every morning just to go to SCHOOL.
….OMG, I think the government is realllllyyyyy quite *insert forbidden word here*. I don’t understand why they have to make classes start at like, 8am?!
CAN’T CLASSES START AT 10AM???
Or better still – start at 11am! That way, students can get a healthy amount of sleep. Then teachers wouldn’t be so damn annoying and start asking the students why we look so tired.
…BECAUSE MAJORITY OF US HAVE TO WAKE UP AT 6FUCKINGAM, THAT’S WHY!
If classes actually started at like, 10:30am (give and take) alot of problems could be solved, such as:
Number of students being late for class would decrease significantly, because waking up early for school wouldn’t be so torturous anymore.
Number of students hating school would decrease significantly as well, also due to reason given above.
Students would be alot less “dead” and lethargic during school!!!! If you start the day feeling SHITTY because you are so TIRED, the rest of your day is pretty much doomed.
If you start the day feeling ENERGETIC, think about how much more productive your day would be!
Thus, if school started 10:30am instead, (some) students would begin to like school instead of hating it, students’ grades would improve and everybody wins.
2) I hate the way I live so damn bloody far away from my school. (I live at Simei, my school is at Hougang)
I feel like I have to travel over mountains and deserts just to get to school.
OMGGGGGG I think I’ve blogged about it quite some time ago, but for the benefit of my newer readers, let me repeat the drama all over again:
The nearest bus stop to my condo is a whopping 15-20 minutes walk away. IF YOU WALK FAST ENOUGH.
Then, from that bus stop, I’d have to take a 15 minutes bus ride to Tampines Interchange.
From Tampines Interchange, I’d have to take a 30 minutes bus ride to Hougang Interchange.
And finally, from Hougang Interchange, I’d have to walk like, 15 minutes to school.
AND THAT MEANS, 20+15+15+30 = 80 minutes,
plus about 15 minutes waiting time for bus-es, it’s 95 minutes also known as ONE AND A HALF HOUR!!!!!!!!!
I only have 24 hours to eat, shit, sleep, play and work everyday. If I have to travel one and a half hour to get there, I’d also have to travel ANOTHER one and a half hour back.
So, just like that, I’m only left with 21 hours for every school day in my life.
…Depressing or not, you tell me?
And because traveling like that is such a chore, sometimes I feel like I have no choice but to take a cab to school and one trip costs $15.
3) School seems to be the bloody hottest place in Singapore.
..And I can’t elaborate enough on how true this statement is. I know EVERYWHERE in Singapore feels like you’re living in a freaking oven, but honestly, I’ve noticed that nowhere is hotter than being in school.
The way they make you climb 4 storeys just to get to your classroom at least 2 or 3 times a day, is really sadistic.
Why did they have to make the staircase so smalllllllllllll?
Then, if you’re as unfortunate as me, you’d have to squeeze with a bunch of other 14 year old boys.
Why are so many secondary shcool boys always so smelly and sticky and sweaty?
And sitting in class at 12pm really does kill me.
Even just by looking at my classmates, I FEEL HOT ALREADY!
Everybody is perspiring profusely, and fanning themselves with papers and books, and everyone has the same expression written all over their faces : VERY HOT!!!!!!!!!!!
Some teachers are really messed up – they like to turn off the fan just to piss us off. So mean la plz
Seems to be a popular tactic among teachers nowadays. I wonder if my school is the only school that does this?!?
I don’t understand why all schools in Singapore can’t have air-conditioners. ITS NOT AS THOUGH SINGAPORE’S GOVERNMENT IS POOR!
When I mentioned this to my teacher, he was like, “Only the privileged schools will have.”
…OMG, excuse me? Privilege?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’
It is becoming a fucking right!
You want us to concentrate in class, but how can we concentrate when we’re practically melting away?
We can build a freaking IR out of nowhere, but we can’t put 2 airconditioners into every classroom. Pffffft.
For the benefit of the students, people! Air-conditioners would work better than supplementary lessons, seriously.
So many students I’ve talked to are willing to work out that LITTLE BIT EXTRA CASH just to install those air-cons! School refuses to listen, though.
4) School uniforms / dress codes are absolutely hideous.
Or rather, I look TERRIBLE in school. LOL.
…Bah, I get an unpleasant surprise everytime I look into the mirror when I’m at school.
My hair’s a mess, my shirt isn’t tucked in, my skirt is way too long / oversized, my school socks are hideous, my school shoes are yellowing – I look like death.
Of course, I know that we’re there to “study” and not there for a fashion show, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could wear our own clothes to school?
Nobody would bug girls about coloured bras!!! Sheesh. Sickening to have a teacher walk up to you just to talk about your bra.
Nobody would bug you about your socks not covering your ankle, whether your hair is untidy or not, etc.
Ehhhh I feel like I’ve typed so much yet there are only 4 facts. Did I promise 10?! Ooops.
Getting bored of blogging about this, so I’m ending here.
…..Rather abrupt, I know.
I AM FEELING SO UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Gooooooodbye dear readers.
Btw, I don’t need any preachy comments. Go away if you want to say something like “you should learn to appreciate your school/teachers more! etc etc.”
Wish me luck for school. *crosses fingers*
I CAN TELL IT’S GOING TO BE UTTERLY TERRIBLE!
