Words of Wisdom

the release of A Levels...

after physics common test i stayed back for lunch and had to settle some tkd stuff. during physics test, mrs chan announced the top students for the A Levels. YES, WHILE WE WERE DOING OUR PHYSICS TEST. so random! couldn't she wait for another hour? it was so distracting while your trying to think.

anyway, after the test i happened to see the top students outside the general office. i guess they were waiting to be photographed by reporters who were already there. upon seeing them, just seeing them, they left a great impression on me and made me think a lot of things. that's why i wasn't able to concentrate on studying chem on that afternoon.

the top students are all geniuses! the 2 top science students had 4A1s, A1 for GP and mother tongue, 3S papers distinctions. 3S PAPERS DISTINCTIONS. CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS? the top arts student had the same except for 2s papers distinctions. it's difficult for arts students to take 3 s papers and it's a challenge to get distinctions for them. but they were gleeming with joy when i saw them. they've all worked hard for the past 2 years for this day and such stunning achievements. and it really made me want to be like them. these people may be labelled as over-achievers by some people but i think there's no such thing as over-achieving. they deserve their achievements and worked hard for them. in renowned universities, 'over-achieving' is the norm rather than exception. there are so many geniuses around the world and we are nothing as compared to them.

people can label me as mugger whatsoever, but i believe that what i want in life is up to me to achieve them. it's no one else's business to interfere with my goals in life and such comments would not stray me away from my path i'm walking. i want to study in the States and i'm going all out to do that. those people around me can say whatever they want. but ultimately, it's MY life that i'm leading. when i've attained my goal, it would be a pleasure to see you guys green with envy.

To all reading this post:
there are always people around you who are out to see you fail. ignore them and focus on what you want out of your life. show them what you've got and let them know that they are so so so wrong...
