sing with me, sing for the year,
sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
sing with me, just for today
maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away
It’s the last day of the year! Every year I do this obligatory sumup thing, but this year seems to have been vastly different from the rest. I’m hard-pressed between choosing 2003 and 2005 as my favourite year, despite having various ups and downs in the process. Sometimes it’s the little things that make it all worthwhile. This year has been full of surprises and many little good things. things like the pwn lit club, the mugging club, and now soon-to-be oxf rejects club (haha), the frantic note-copying in class, running up and down from the canteen to LT5 buying food and drinks, the yongtaufoo stall auntie who keeps mistaking me for SF and SF for me (even though the girl eats nothing but chee cheong fun and drinks nothing but hot barley), my crazy obsession with vitasoy, getting thrown out of a pub in lake district with my dubious photocopied ID, hiking for god knows how long up a stupid hill and finding a single flower in the middle of like 308576586 miles of grassland (York is odd), dancing in the moonlight, the K-boxing that never materialised (oh HZ! how!), the fishing trips, bitching by the jetty, running after stupid bicycles that refused to wait, the goddamn set building for production this year, sneaking out with K. to orchard while everyone was slaving away (hahaha), watching SDJRR play at bandage and prom, getting caught in the rain 4067405877 times, getting high in Clarke Quay with RM and B. The first time round, then all the memories it brought back for B. and JS that culminated in that eulogy rubbish that seems to circulating everywhere now, the third time round with the Mongolia people (I miss you Yanj), the clubbing, dancing on the podium, getting hit on by odd people, the cute guy in the blue tshirt, CH getting drunk, M.’s dog, HY’s house, running all over Singapore with Yanj and camping on Sheares Bridge (so beautiful) for two hours and taking dumb pictures of Raffles in Boat Quay, and best of all, jumping into a hotel pool with all our clothes on in the middle of Orchard (you’re the craziest person I’ve met this year man).
What I love are the wonderful conversations, the people I’ve grown closer to, the things I’ve settled, how I hope I can walk out of 2005 without any regrets (and winning that bet). In short, this whole year can be characterised by “WTF?” and a whole lot of laughter following. Also, this week’s been pure madness. There are so many crazy things happening I don’t even know where to start describing from. But it’s been a good week to end off the year, and I suspect things will get crazier tonight. I don’t think there’s anything better than spending holidays with people you love. Aww yeah baby (:
