Back to school
Whilst a good big half of my form 5 class are already calling themselves university students, rushing to meet assignment deadlines and attending lectures, I’m sitting here blogging my ass off. As foreseen, we have come to a parting of the ways, or many ways. Like a tree in which at one point the trunk ends up in seemingly messy branches spreading out, each reaching its own heights.
..and me? I’d be a fledging little branch, probably sprouting a leaf or two. Sometimes I wonder if I’m still part of the trunk. Which, in a way, makes sense for I’d be heading back to school. Form 6 that is.
Anyway, I’m not all that moody for form 6. They say it’s a two-year psychological stress programme. Others, a waste of time. I’ve had a lot of advice on these form 6-or-not-form 6 topics. Mind you, college dudes, form 6 has far higher standards and thus, difficulty but in the end, those who had gone through the sixth form are said to bear more quality than those get-graduated-quick programmes. And before you know it you’d be graduating form 6 with a place in a public university which has actually became easier to cope with.
No offense to those already in them though. I have no intention of making you think twice if you’re really up to paying your foundation course. If you’re sure thats the path you want to take and won’t regret it, go on by all means.
So back on topic, that’s why I prefer to call form 6 the two-year gem-making programme. XD
Form 6 really isn’t going to be that bad after all. Word has it that it starts this 15th, which is next tuesday. Gasp! And I’ll be going to school this Thursday to check the form 6 admittance list. I’ll probably be going for science stream, with the Physics option.
So, I’d better be making use of these few days to get new sets of school uniforms. Probably a new bag, and stationary. Get a haircut, shave, nails and whatnot. Sigh, strict school life.
And the books. About a month ago, my dad took me to Popular where I grabbed three form 6 books home just to start on familiarising myself with the new syllabus. Each of those books could weighed as much as a hard-covered encyclopedia. Complete with coloured glossy pages cover to cover, illustrations and such, they’re no ordinary school textbooks with kiddy illustrations and monotone pages. Perhaps that’s something for a change. But honestly, well, I haven’t been really touching them. XD
Well then, it’s back to school everybody! Can’t wait. XD
