»Let's get the small things out of the way first...
Sunday, 15 July 2012
The TA, it seems, can't fix a problem without causing a few more. To put a really, really long story short, I dropped my computer and damaged my hard drive, so I had to send my TPC to the TA to replace it. Which meant I lost all my data. That was expected.
What I didn't expect was THAT THEY'D STRIP MY ADMIN RIGHTS AND LOSE MY FUCKING STYLUS FOR ME THE FUCKERS.
I MEAN COME ON, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? I CAN'T EVEN DOWNLOAD MSN. I REQUIRE MSN TO COMMUNICATE BECAUSE NOBODY REPLIES MY TEXTS DAMN IT. YOU CNA IGNORE A BEEP BUT YOU CAN'T IGNORE A BLINKING ICON ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR TASKBAR ASDFGHJKL;' I NEED MY STYLUS TO DO SHIT. LIKE, IMPORTANT SHIT. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PRETEND TO DO NOTES ON MY EXAM SCRIPTS NOW?
So yes. I'm pissed. Putting that aside, almost everything went smoothly. With the exception of eh, the debate prep, crezawards, the debate and the sleepover. Those are the only exceptions, I swear.
1) Debate prep.
I'm going to be entirely honest here. I was pretty pissed off with a lot of people this week. It'd be easier to list the people I didn't get irritated at than the people I did. The list goes a little like this:
- Wei Yee
At least internally. I'm not gonna mention the specific names. Just...yea. Shash and Nicole, I love you guys to death, really. You worked so hard and did so much research and hugs forever. I will buy you food. Or something. Something nice. Debate prep was... It was kinda sucky. Yet somehow, some part of me wouldn't mind going through it again. It was an experience and I guess we all learnt from it. A lot of stuff happened like the motion changing halfway through prep (WTF) and people not contributing *cough cough*.
So Reema came over on Thursday to sleepover so that we could do more work. This did not work out for several reasons. Firstly, we did not get any quality sleep. At all. We ended up feeling even worse in the morning than the night before. This leads me to confirm my hypothesis that even with a friend, mornings suck.
Add to that the fact that my mom was kinda cranky and got pissed at Reema not greeting her and stuff, it was a terrible plan. It also left my room in a major mess, which certainly didn't help my mom's impression of her. Apparently rushing to get to school/meet up with Naomi for CrezAwards is not a valid reason for mess.
It was fun and all. There's no denying that. It's just that there were a lot of screw-ups and stuff happened and I'd rather save that for my personal blog. The performances weren't as bad as I thought they'd turn out so that's one good thing :D It was rather surprising that a sec 1 won the dance category though and WY was pretty pissed when I told her Crystal got 2nd in the vocal category. Yep. Short and sweet.
4) MGS debate.
This was what prompted me to write this whole post in the first place. So many things went wrong I can't even.
Tricia couldn't come because her god-mother got sent to the hospital. Mr M couldn't come until 3 because he was judging for the lit festival. Ms Khan (we still don't know who the heck this woman is BTW) couldn't come because she was tired and worn out BECAUSE HER MARRIAGE WAS THE NEXT DAY. We were the only team there dressed like hobos without proper blazers and shit ties and looked like we crawled out of a dump. Everyone else was just like
And they looked all professional and shit and had coaches and teachers and people supporting them and we were just there like.
We went up against ACS Barker and won. By half a mark. Or 1 mark. I have no idea but the point is that it was kinda sad. Or really good since we ARE a pretty new team with no coach and half the team has little to no debate experience.Then we went up against SCGS and got trashed. Then lunch, in which Kash just sat there with Reema and giggled over texts. Nicole and Shash were talking about sec 1 stuff and I forever-aloned in the side with my food and phone. Which is usually what happens so /shrugs/.
Next round we went up against River Valley and I think I kinda screwed up by being too aggressive and un-lady-like and yea. Sorry guys.
We don't know whether we won the last round because the adjudicator disappeared after they released the schools going into the semis. While waiting for the results, I ended up sitting next to Mr M and it was awkward and I kinda wanted to murder everyone who shifted from my right to my left and Reema I'm talking to you why did you ask him to shift in next to me he was two seats away isn't it enough Nicole and Shash already shifted away and you're having fun with Kash and blaaarrrghhh.
I'll cut this off before I go full on rambling. Good night bye bye I caught a cold so I need to sleep otherwise I'll end up passing out next to fluffy tomorrow morning or just be straight up concussed on my desk the whole day.
