… I should be happy. After all, Jun Wei bought me my first Billabong t-shirt. We were actually shopping for shirts for him when he spotted that shirt. Turns out that it was the last piece and it was one size too small for him. So he placed it on me and said, “Hey! It looks nice on you.”

So he got it for me and I was like a kid having my chocolate cake

I went back to Kinokuniya today hoping to exchange my BLEACH volume 12 for something else. Thank goodness they gave me the okay! I wanted to get Rurouni Kenshin volume 3 but there wasn’t any stock. So I went through the whole store at the Takashimaya outlet and finally decided to settle for Robert Frost: Selected Poems (after considering X-Men Ultimate Guide and Neil Gaiman’s novels).

I peeled off the plastic wrapping and removed the price tag before opening the book to the contents page.

The book did not contain Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. As a comfort, at least it had The Road Not Taken.

I was a very happy kid when I brought home SG$60 worth of books from Kinokuniya. It was not until I cut open the plastic of my BLEACH volume 12 (as well as de-tag it) and flipped through the book only to realise that it looked familiar…

I walked towards my BLEACH manga shelf. To my horror, I realised that I had bought volume 12 a few weeks ago. DANGIT.

Well, my first day of school was pretty normal I guess. Lessons have been going on and about. It’s been two weeks but I don’t want to be left behind so I’ve been attempting to revise everyday. My plan was to study every weekend but the past two weekends have been eaten up by camps. So I’m making use of today which is Labour Day

Canoe camp was fun. Fun in the sense that the canoeing parts were fun. I remember attending the same camp four years ago. However, both camps were rather different.

This camp was too big compared to last time’s so I could not bond with anyone closely. At the other camp, it was smaller-scaled and even though there were less than 30 campers, we bonded well together and even till now, four years later, we are still in contact with each other

Sigh, lovely memories back then.

Anyway, I am totally sunburnt because of the canoeing at Kallang as well as the trying of canoe polo back in the school’s swimming pool. Because of my spoilt skin condition, I was the only one who got this burnt :neutral:

I am such an idiot when I was rowing the canoe for canoe polo. I forgot that the paddling strokes were different from a normal canoe so I could not paddle straight. And I was the first one to capsize not once but twice :roll:

It wasn’t until I remembered that I had to paddle lightly, then did I get the hang of it. But before I could continue paddling, it was time to switch for the other groups to have a go with the canoes :mrgreen:

My skin’s much better now. Not so painful. My muscles doesn’t hurt as much either. But I guess it’ll hurt once I go for Tuesday’s gym training Do wish me the best of luck because I really need it

Thanks for everyone who voted and those who wanted to vote but was too late! I wanted to post something before I left for canoe camp but my internet died. Right now, I just got home not too long ago and I’m too tired and sunburnt to relate about my camp.

Updates on how school went will resume at the end of the week

In less than nine hours, I will be starting the new school semester in a new school year. I am excited. Yet I’m afraid. Exactly like last year. Will I be able to work with my new classmates? Will I be able to keep up with my work? Will I be as busy as last year or even busier? Will I be able to survive this?

For all these and more, stay tuned and you’ll find out.
